Carol’s Profile

Solution Focused Hypnotherapist

Carol qualified in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy from the Clifton Practice of Hypnotherapy Training in 2017 and has been practicing as a hypnotherapist in Happy Being since February 2018.

After her further education, Carol moved to London from St.Andrews and spent many years building a successful career in Human Resources. Carol returned to Scotland in 2004 and continued her corporate HR career in Edinburgh. In her roles as HR Director, Carol has been responsible for coaching, mentoring and developing executives and teams. Through this, Carol became very interested in hypnotherapy and psychotherapy and took this one step further by studying for the Diploma in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy, supervised through the Clifton Practice of Hypnotherapy Training in Bristol. Carol completed this Diploma in December 2017 and has been practicing Hypnotherapy in Happy Being since 2018.

What Carol says:

“This accreditation has opened my eyes and my understanding to how the mind works. How, if not managed well, the negative subconscious can take control of our lives but also how easy it is, through a programme of solution focused hypnotherapy sessions, to get back on track.”

Carol is based at Happy Being, 14 Alva Street, and you can contact her on 07796 440954 or e-mail her at

Programme Length & Pricing

Clients will, on average, require up to 8 consultations (with the exception of treating a phobia, which is 3 sessions and an elongated session of 1.5 to 2 hours to stop smoking).

The initial free consultation lasts 30 to 45 minutes (not required for stop smoking). This helps me to understand the issue that needs my support and will allow time to explain the programme more fully.

Thereafter, each consultation is £50, payable in advance.


“I was suffering from bad eating habits after getting in late from work. I would primarily eat ready made meals which led to bad sleep, low energy levels and poor concentration the next day. This affected me mentally and physically and had been going on for a few years. I felt quite trapped and in a real rut not knowing what to do.
After a friend told me about Hypnotherapy with Carol and how it had helped her beat a phobia I booked in for a series of Hypnotherapy sessions. I now have broken the habit of late night eating and going to bed late. I plan and prep meals days before, cook healthier food, eat earlier and have started to wind down earlier ready for bed. The days are so much better and I feel I have loads more energy.
I thoroughly recommend Hypnotherapy with Carol, she is good at what she does, putting you at ease as soon as you walk through the door and a series of Hypnotherapy sessions with her really work!”

“I would highly recommend Carol as a hypnotherapist. I had a series of sessions with her that not only resulted in my issue being addressed but also helped me take a more holistic view of my life. The latter was totally unexpected and encouraged me to look at things from a different perspective to achieve different results. I wasn’t sure what to expect but Carol’s relaxed and engaging style very quickly put me at ease and enabled a deeper and more meaningful conversation.
Carol helped me identify and change my habits in a way that I have been able to sustain. I have continued to listen to the relaxation recording that I was given at the beginning of the sessions which I have found to be extremely useful.”

“Carol has effectively given me my life back. I’ve suffered from very poor sleep since adolescence. This later became chronic insomnia due to drug and radiotherapy treatments for a serious illness. Insomnia was destroying my quality of life and general well-being and happiness. Carol’s course of treatment helped me understand the causes of my insomnia and gave me some practical things to do to improve sleep. For the first time in 35 years I get regular and unbroken sleep. As the clock approaches ‘bed time’, I no longer dread it. The change has been remarkable, commented on by my wife, family, friends and colleagues. Thank you, Carol!”
