My name is Carole Allen and I am a Counsellor and Hypnotherapist and my aim is to help you explore your feelings and emotions, which can be helped with both counselling and hypnotherapy. Often, the process of just speaking to a non-judgmental and empathic listener are all people need to feel better about their circumstances. Counselling and hypnotherapy are offered in a confidential setting to enable you to explore your feelings and perhaps understand yourself from a different perspective. The aim is to build a trusting relationship between client and counsellor to enable the client to speak freely and know they will not be judged.
I have a Diploma in Integrative Counselling and am a member of BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) and have specialised in drug and alcohol addiction and bereavement work. I have been a hypnotherapist for ten years and am a member of the General Hypnotherapy Register (GHR) and also have a Diploma in NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming). I am DBS registered (Disclosure and Barring Service) which ensures that I have been fully vetted by this service to ensure the public’s safety.
I have also worked with vulnerable people and people with learning disabilities for over twenty years in my role as a complementary therapist. I pride myself on being non-judgmental and offer a trusting, confidential and empathic service to my clients. I find that many of my clients benefit from a mixture of counselling and hypnotherapy and I offer this to all my clients if they wish to take advantage of both services. Counselling and hypnotherapy is a powerful mixture which benefits many clients.
Training, qualifications & experience
Fully qualified Counsellor and Hypnotherapist. A member of BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) and the General Hypnotherapy Register (GHR)
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
