Hello, I’m Carol Hickson.
I help people resolve issues in their lives.
You might have anxiety, be experiencing panic attacks or suffering with depression. Perhaps you have sleep problems or are coping with chronic pain or weight gain.
Maybe you’re struggling with your self-confidence, the menopause or childhood trauma.
Perhaps you’re worrying about your alcohol consumption, or realise you’re getting angry all the time.
Whatever the problem, why not call me today and let’s talk about how we can move you forward?
“Increased strength, confidence and focus led me down a new path…I thank you so much for making this possible…your contribution to enabling me to do this can never be underestimated.”
For face to face sessions I work from my beautiful, dedicated room at my home in central Northwich, Cheshire.
Online, I can work with you over Skype, Zoom or the telephone.
What you can expect...
My approach will be tailored to you and the problem you want to address. Some people think that therapy takes a long time, but it doesn’t have to be like that. I ask my clients to commit 30 minutes a day to get the changes they want.
In each session we may use one or more therapies; CBT, hypnotherapy, emotional freedom technique, NLP, reiki, mindfulness or life coaching. In my experience using them in combination produces a quicker and more effective result.
If a problem is so difficult you cannot talk about it, we can find other ways to work with it. My sessions are safe and non-judgemental, and you always have control. My goal is to not only help you with a specific issue or issues, but for you to leave me with a toolbox of useful techniques that you can apply in the future.
My Areas of Speciality
Years ago, I was a disabled blue badge holder chronically debilitated from five prolapsed spinal discs and dystonia.
In a relatively short period, I lost my best friend, my wonderful grandmother, my partner and both parents. I was also four years into the most exhausting bout of insomnia, sleeping most nights for only an hour or so.
Add to this mix work related stress, unresolved childhood trauma and training as a Secondary school teacher and you have some idea of the muddle I found myself in.
Despite three MRI scans and numerous attempts at medication, the medical profession couldn’t help. They were looking for a physical cause,
I only found resolution when I explored my own mental and emotional health.
The catalyst was December five years ago, I was involved in a car accident and my mother died unexpectedly on Christmas Day.
Something had to change.
I took back responsibility from my doctors. I treated myself kindly. I stopped accumulating self-blame and I began to change my life one step at a time. And I’ve never looked back.
I can show you how to do the same.
