Carys Ann Clargo
BSc (Hons) Psych, GQHP, GHR Reg.
Welcome to Oaks Hypnotherapy. My name is Carys Clargo and I’m a registered hypnotherapy practitioner based in Oakdale, near Blackwood in the Caerphilly borough. I work with clients who are looking to make quick and permanent positive changes to their lives. I specialise in anxiety and stress related issues (including occupational stress management), depression, panic attacks and phobias, as well as treating more habitual behaviours like stopping smoking, issues with alcohol or achieving and maintaining a healthy weight loss. For more detailed information on specific issues I treat, please select the Available Treatments menu at the top of the page.
If you are considering hypnotherapy, it’s really important to ensure your practitioner has undergone accredited training. This ensures that the practitioner:
- has been professionally trained, meeting the requirements of a supervising body;
- holds the appropriate insurance for hypnotherapy practice;
- is committed to continuing professional development (CPD).
I completed my practitioner training at the College of Clinical and Medical Hypnosis in South Wales, under the expert, private tuition of Dr Lyn Bateman, accredited by the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council (GHSC).
In addition to my accredited training, I also hold a First-class Honours degree in Psychology (British Psychological Society accredited), and have studied a varied range of perspectives and traditions in the discipline, including individual differences. With this in mind, all of my hypnotherapy sessions are designed specifically for the individual needs and expectations of each of my clients. Therefore, I never adopt a generic ‘one size fits all’ approach. Each of my sessions is bespoke, tailor-made for every client, and designed for quick, effective and lasting change.
I always take an ethical approach to my business, with the individual needs and expectations of my clients at the forefront, and I adhere strictly to the ethical guidelines of the GHSC. It’s my pleasure to offer all clients a free initial, no obligation consultation. This enables us to discuss the issue you need help with and also allows me to answer any questions you may have about hypnosis and hypnotherapy. I don’t sell packages of hypnotherapy sessions, preferring to work on a session by session basis. That way, you’ll never be tied into attending sessions that you don’t need. I also provide full and confidential support between sessions.
Although results of hypnotherapy vary from person to person, I know first-hand how empowering, positive and extremely effective it can be. Some years ago I developed a sudden fear of driving over bridges. This came completely out of the blue and even the sight of a bridge in the distance could bring about an extremely frightening panic attack. I did some research and found out that this is a condition called gephyrophobia. However, I did nothing about it, and would go out of my way to avoid bridges, it put many miles on my clock! Thanks to my training in hypnosis, I no longer have this phobia, it’s completely gone. I don’t feel any fear now when approaching a bridge, and I’m able to drive over them without consciously thinking about it, and the panic attacks are thankfully a thing of the past. Due to hypnosis, I was able to create a positive change to my subconscious mind very quickly and I’m confident that the change is permanent. Quite simply, it’s changed my life, and it can change yours too.
If you would like to know more, then I’d love to hear from you. Please get in touch either by telephone or by completing the contact form. I really look forward to hearing from you and to working with you.

‘After being involved in an air crash in 1999 it has become progressively harder for me to fly. I hoped that by flying every year it would become easier, but the stress and anxiety only got worse. In 2015 I decided not to fly again, as I could not cope with the feelings of extreme anxiety, which would usually ruin my holiday. That was until my husband and I had to plan our honeymoon. I didn’t want my fear of flying to restrict us, so we went all out and booked a 10 hour flight to Mexico! I was willing to try anything to make flying bearable, so I turned to Oaks Hypnotherapy. I was not convinced that I was lucky enough for hypnotherapy to work for me, but I was determined to give it a go, and I can now say it was one of the best decisions I have ever made! Carys was a fantastic practitioner and tried everything possible to help me. I didn’t feel particularly different after my sessions, but the proof was in the pudding when I arrived at the airport. None of the usual anxiety, shakes, tears and nausea. I felt so in control and went on to complete a 10 hour flight with relative ease. I was so amazed and still can’t quite believe I did it. I was not expecting such drastic results! This has now opened up a whole new world for me and I have Carys to thank for that. If you are considering giving hypnotherapy a go, please do, as it may just change your life.’ KG, Blackwood, Caerphilly
‘I had hypnotherapy to quit smoking, I was smoking 20 a day for 13 years, I had 2 sessions with Carys and haven’t had a cigarette since my 1st session! It works. One month today smoke free, no substitute! Great service, excellent value for money, no price on life itself, also such a lovely friendly woman, would and have recommended to others, thank you Carys so much x’ AC, Blackwood, Caerphilly
‘My work involves public speaking, and though I tried to manage the stress it caused, I found the nerves just mounted and I was unable to sleep the night before doing it. Dealing with this fear in sessions at Oaks Hypnotherapy meant that I was finally able to treat it as just in a day’s work!’ WB – Cardiff, South Glamorgan.
‘As a student I’ve done better in coursework than exams because I panic in exams. My college helped me by letting me sit exams in a room with just a few others. My mum and dad found out about hypnotherapy. I’d never heard of it but Carys was very sympathetic to the problem and helped me make my exam writing reflect my abilities not my nerves.’ SF – Pontypridd, Mid Glamorgan.
‘A couple of years ago I started drinking. The problems I was having got better but the drinking didn’t. A friend told me about hypnotherapy and what surprised me about the sessions was that they helped me do what I wanted to do, but couldn’t manage on my own. Working with Carys was a life changer.’ EB – Caerphilly, Gwent.
‘I decided to have hypnotherapy for a fear of flying which I’ve always had. I wished I’d done it sooner as after only a few sessions with Carys, I was able to fly off on holiday without a care in the world. I must admit, I was a little sceptical at first but can honestly say that my fear of flying is now gone. I’m delighted’ AH – Newport, Gwent.
‘I’d been experiencing intense anxiety for a few years which was starting to affect all aspects of my life. I contacted Carys and explained how nervous I was about hypnotherapy, which she fully understood. I had six sessions of therapy with this lovely lady, what a difference she has made. I honestly can’t thank her enough.’ PT – Pontypool, Gwent.
‘Having been unable to give up smoking for many years and trying every remedy on the market, I decided to try hypnotherapy. On meeting Carys, I felt immediately at ease and relaxed, she is an extremely warm person who is very passionate about what she does. Thank you so much Carys, I haven’t smoked a single cigarette for six weeks now, and haven’t wanted to, you have changed my life!’ SC – Blackwood, Gwent.
