About Me

Important notice:

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, hypnotherapy sessions are available on an online only (Skype) basis for the foreseeable future. Please get in touch to discuss your requirements.

Welcome to Oaks Hypnotherapy! My name is Carys Clargo and I’m a professional hypnotherapist based in Oakdale, near Blackwood, in the Caerphilly borough. Hypnotherapy can help us to improve our lives in so many ways. Maybe you’re suffering from stress, or being held back by anxiety; perhaps you need help to stop smoking or to achieve and maintain a safe and healthy weight loss. Whatever the issue, hypnotherapy can be extremely effective in bringing about positive change. Having experienced stress and anxiety-related issues myself in the past, I fully understand how severe an impact they can have on our lives. However, since discovering the wonderful benefits of hypnosis, these issues are now under control and my life is balanced and positive. Learning techniques to help manage the symptoms turned everything around for me, and I’m really happy to share these with you. Hypnotherapy, however, shouldn’t be thought of as a miracle cure. Although it is possible to achieve positive change in a relatively short space of time, it does require a level of commitment in order to fully benefit. I will explain things in further detail during your initial consultation. This is a great time for us to get to know each other and you’ll also experience a full and absolutely FREE introductory hypnotherapy session, you simply pay the £20.00 consultation fee! If, following the initial consultation, you decide not to book follow-up sessions, that’s perfectly fine, you’re under no obligation whatsoever. More detailed information on the specific issues I can help you with can be found in the Available Treatments menu above. If you don’t see your particular issue listed, please get in touch anyway and I’ll advise if I can help.

At the present time in the UK, hypnotherapy is an unregulated profession, meaning anyone is able to go into practice. Therefore, if you are considering hypnotherapy, it’s really important to undertake some initial research. In particular, you should ensure that the practitioner:

  • has been appropriately trained, meeting the requirements of a professional body;
  • abides by the ethical guidelines of a professional body;
  • has a sound knowledge of human psychology;
  • is professionally registered;
  • holds the appropriate insurance for hypnotherapy practice.

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). Additionally, I am registered within the General Hypnotherapy Register (GHR).

In addition to my professional qualifications, I also hold a First-class Honours degree in Psychology (British Psychological Society accredited), and have studied a 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.

If you decide to get in touch, you’ll find me professional, friendly and very open about how hypnosis has benefited me. My preferred way of working is on a session by session basis so that you’re never tied into attending sessions that you don’t need, and we can terminate treatment at the earliest time consistent with your good care. Your initial consultation will last for around ninety minutes and includes your full FREE introductory session!

Finally, hypnotherapy is enjoyable! All of my sessions are designed to give you a positive, uplifting and empowering experience that may change your life!

Fear Of Flying
