ABOUT Caroline

She is the author of the Amazon bestseller The Smoking Cure: How to Quit Smoking Without Feeling Like Sh*t and has a private practice in St Heliers, gives advice on the breakfast show Laura, Sam and Toni on The Hits as well as teaching hypnotherapy at The Integrative Hypnotherapy Institute, facilitating workshops and corporate training.

Caroline believes health starts with our thoughts and beliefs and filters down through to our physical experience. She has spent her life on a quest to find out what makes people tick. Why we do the things we do.  What motivates us? Why some people become stronger from traumatic experiences and others let it become their downfall? Why some people die from relatively minor illnesses while others get to deaths door and come back stronger than ever? Your health can be a bit of a puzzle, sometimes all it takes is finding that missing piece.

Caroline grew up with a passion for health; mental and physical. Studying psychology and nutrition at University, she became disillusioned with the results of traditional therapy. After a visit to a hypnotherapist, Caroline realized that hypnosis combined with therapy could access deep issues and clear them in just a few sessions.

She has studied hypnotherapy, psychology, counseling, coaching, nutrition, fitness, kinesiology, spirituality and consciousness extensively and makes a point of continually developing her skills and knowledge in order to ensure that her clients benefit from the most effective and rapid resolution of their issues possible. Within each of us lies the wisdom to create a happy, healthy life.

However, we are often held back by attitudes and beliefs that lessen our self esteem, block our creativity, and limit our resourcefulness. Thankfully, we never lose the ability to heal ourselves no matter how hopeless we may feel.
