“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, talented, fabulous?’Actually, who are you not to be?”

Marianne Williamson

I have been offering hypnotherapy & psychotherapy in Kingston since 1999. I use a variety of techniques to deal with a whole range of emotional and behavioural issues like: anxieties, panic attacks, depression, phobias, social phobias, OCD, weight issues, stop smoking and many more.

How Does Hypnotherapy Work?

Hypnosis is a very natural state and the client is always in control.  It is a myth that you lose control.  An example of how hypnosis would feel would be to liken it to that wonderful daydream state just before you wake up.  It’s actually a very therapeutic and relaxing state which clients often tell me is something they really look forward to as part of our work together.

At my hypnotherapy practice in Kingston I use a variety of other therapies in combination with hypnosis which is a very powerful, safe and effective way of dealing with many unhelpful habits, thought patterns, behaviours and deep seated issues. The unconscious mind doesn’t know the difference between real or imagined events so we can trick the unconscious mind into reacting, behaving and thinking in a new relaxed, calm way because your unconscious mind will believe that you have already done it.

This kind of treatment can be incredibly successful and speedy so the need to attend sessions for many months can be significantly reduced.  This of course depends on your own particular issues and needs and in some cases treatment may be on going.

hypnotherapy reinforces all the good work we would have done in our discussions and helps to really effect the most  powerful long lasting change. I will always teach my clients self hypnosis so they continue to reap its benefits and stay in control of their lives.

“…sometimes you have to revisit your past to go forward in life. Sometimes you just can’t see the wood for the trees. I was in that position and deeply unhappy. Being a client of Carolyne Ash-Brazier helped me go forward. I now have the ability to achieve my goals rather than just dream about them. Getting in touch with Carolyne was a big step and I now realise how lucky I was to have come across The Really Useful Life Coach advert. If it wasn’t for Carolyne I wouldn’t have gone on the correct path to achieve my college certificate as now I have a new career path and can truly say I am the happiest I have EVER been….”

Joanna McCormick , Mobile Hairdresser.

“I had a series of coaching calls with Carolyne which have been very helpful. She helped me identify some areas that were holding me back and taking my business to the next level. She then helped me devise some strategies to shift these blocks. Carolyne has a warm, friendly manner and is indeed a “very useful coach.”

Felix Macintosh, Tigersonic

“Carolyne is amazing and has genuinely helped me; I gained huge conviction over how to deal with some aspects of work life. Carolyne helped me to put things in perspective or change them altogether always recognising, understanding and explaining the complexity of my thinking and actions.

Her sessions worked because she trusted in me and allowed me to come up with the plans and the answers to a successful shift in the areas that needed to be considered a different way.

A big thank you to you Carolyne!”

Paula Martins Client Training Manager

“I went to see Carolyne to help me overcome a problem which had undermined me since my early teens. Whenever i had felt any heightened emotion such as being awkward, nervous,excited or angry i blushed bright red, not only on my face but down my neck and across my chest and back. It felt like i had been branded. I was always scared that it was going to happen and felt ashamed that i couldn’t conceal my emotions better. My sessions with Carolyne helped me to explore the underline causes of this embarrassing problem and together we worked on ways to overcome it. My friends noticed that i blushed far less frequently after only a few sessions and i now feel in control which is so liberating. I am extremely grateful for all Carolyne’s help and can recommend her confidently to anyone looking for help.”

Anne Marie Boyle, Teacher

“My sessions with Carolyne have been invaluable to me. She really understood where I was coming from and helped me find my strengths and realise my dreams. I can’t believe that I can finally call myself an actress. I’m motivated, confident and great things are starting to happen. I always look forward to my sessions with Carolyne…thank you, you’re a star!”
