Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is evidence based on the latest research and neuroscience. It is a gentle and effective therapy combining elements of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Neuro-linguistic Programming, Psychotherapy and Solution Focused Brief Therapy that utilises the client’s own natural resources to bring about positive and lasting changes.
The therapy is positive and solution focused in its approach to a range of emotional, nervous or psychological problems including anxiety, stress, depression, fears, phobias, obsessive compulsive disorders and unwanted habits. It is also very effective in improving sleep, confidence, motivation and performance. Cathy offers an initial consultation during which she will take a brief health history. This will help to develop an individual treatment plan for you. She will then explain how the brain works in simple, straight forward terms. This often reassures people that they will regain control of their life.
Cathy studied with the prestigious Clifton Practice Hypnotherapy Training group.

Carole qualified as a Remedial Massage Therapist at the Northern Institute of Massage in January 2015 and provides remedial massage for health, well-being and recovery from injury.
Remedial massage is an effective healing treatment which involves manipulating the muscles and soft tissues of the body in order to reduce tension, increase flexibility and promote balance in both body and mind.
It aims to alleviate aches and pains using a range of massage depths and pressures, increasing blood flow to muscles and helping the lymphatic system release and rid the body of toxins. The massage traces the discomfort as far as possible to the original cause, aiming to heal the origin of the problem and not just the symptoms. It can be performed as part of a broader treatment plan recommended by the physiotherapists, or it can be used as a treatment by itself.
By inducing a relaxation response, remedial massage therapy can lower your heart rate, breathing rate and blood pressure, plus it has been proven to boost the immune system and decrease the physical effects of stress.
It focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue and is especially helpful for chronic and tense areas such as stiff necks, lower back tightness and sore shoulders.
Conditions that may benefit from remedial massage include:
- Muscle tension
- Neck and shoulder pain
- Back pain
- Tension headaches
- Stress, anxiety, insomnia and depression
- Sports injuries, sprains and strains
- Post-operative rehabilitation
- Planter fasciitis
- Leg muscle cramps
- Common work-related injuries and more . . .
