Hi, I’m Caroline and I know how important it is that you find a therapist you feel comfortable with, so I wanted to tell you a little bit about me.
I’m a Hypnotherapist and a Pain Management Specialist and I found out how amazing and effective both of these techniques were for myself, after I used them to help me pre and post-surgery with pain management.
I’m originally from the Midlands but have had the travelling bug since I was young. I’ve travelled all over the world, as far away as Sydney, Australia, but I’ve now settled in Wigan. I love the people, their humour and the occasional pie!
I struggled with stress and anxiety for years (and it was probably the reason I travelled so much, because nowhere ever felt like home and I always felt like something was missing).
In my 20’s I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, which wasn’t helped by all that stress and anxiety. The doctors weren’t very helpful, and I thought my life was done, which sent me into a spiral that lasted for years.
Don’t worry though – this story has a happy ending as it brought me here, to being a therapist and helping people feel better. In my 30’s someone told me that this was my chance to take my rock bottom moment and reinvent myself. It was time to do some work on myself and become the new Cal 2.0.
Meditation, hypnotherapy, relaxation, building a strong mind set, finding my sense of humour again, loving all the little things in life and finding gratitude in just about everything all helped me get myself back up and while it’s a work in progress, I’m loving the journey.
My journey helped me see the value of all these techniques and so, 5 years ago I trained to be a Counsellor and then a Hypnotherapist. I love what I do and I think all my struggles and my downward spiral were meant to happen, so I could find what I was meant to be doing with my life.
One of the things I’ve learned about myself over the years is that I used to do things to excess, eat, worry, study, party (I was an all or nothing kinda girl) I’ve mellowed out now and live life at 50 miles an hour instead of 100 and life is so much better for that. In the past 18 months I’ve melted over 4 stone in weight and continue to work towards feeling my best.
Outside of work you will find me with my two Lhasa Apso fur babies Flo and Georgie they are a huge source of joy and frustration to me, they have me wrapped around their paws.
I also love to cook and am a bit of a foodie. I originally trained as a Chef when I left school and spent time in Italy studying their food (and sampling lots of it as well!)
I’d love to help you make those changes you want to make and if you’re ready you can book a free consultation with me or if you have any questions then please message me and let’s chat.
