Hello there! If we work together, I’ll get to know quite a lot about you, so here’s a little bit of information about me – just in case you were wondering…
What are my credentials ? I’ve been helping people to resolve their anxieties and issues since 2000, treating thousands of people over the years. I have a degree in Psychology and over the years, have studied, practiced and been a participant of many different types of therapy. These include hypnotherapy, CBT, NLP, EFT, counselling, psychotherapy, Pure Hypnoanalysis and Brief solution focused therapy – I’ve been around the therapy block a bit!
I have been been a Thrive Consultant ever since The Thrive Programme was first created, and am proud to have been awarded the Thrive Consultant of the Year award in 2013. I’m a member of The ATPC – the Association of Thrive Programme Consultants, and abide by their their strict code of ethics based around respect, responsibility and transparency. I have full professional insurance. For those who like lists, here are my Professional Qualifications and Affiliations:
• Bsc (Hons) Psychology degree from UEL
• Accredited and Licensed Thrive Programme Consultant and Mentor
• Advanced Diploma in Clinical Hypnosis and Pure Hypnoanalysis from the IAEBP
• Diploma in Hypnotherapy and Hypnoanalysis from the Hypnotherapy Control Board
• Diploma in Brief Solutions Focused therapy from Uncommon Knowledge
• Licenced Hypnoband Practitioner
• Diploma in Medical Hypnotherapy from The American Association of Medical Hypnotherapists
Why do I do this job? I really like people. Unless you’re a psychopath, I’ll like you too. My previous struggles with my own issues means that I have come out the other side with empathy and compassion for others. There is no better feeling than seeing the amazing turnaround in people from the start of the programme to the end.
How did I get into doing this? Having known what it feels like to have poor self esteem and social anxiety myself (ok ok, I’ll stop going on about it), I’ve always been interested in what makes us tick. This is what prompted me to choose Psychology as a degree. I didn’t jump straight into helping people as a career afterwards, I did so after a string of other jobs including software trainer, graphics recruitment consultant and Market researcher.
I cannot recommend this lady enough. She enjoys the fact she is helping you and her compassion, understanding, ease and trustworthiness is second to none. So worth every penny I spent and I was kinda sad when she “sorted me out” because I wouldn’t see her again. Oh and she has a fantastic sense of humor.
Where do I work? I have offices in Rickmansworth in North London/Hertfordshire and Aylesbury in Bucks. However, because The Thrive Programme works well via Skype, I frequently work with clients in such places as China, New Zealand, Australia, America, Dubai and Essex.
Anything else I should know about you? I’m stepmum to two children. This role has happened relatively recently so my Thrive for children knowledge has come right to the fore. I like to play tennis, go to the cinema and when I’m feeling a little creative around the edges, I slip away to a little studio where I fuse glass to make things such as jewellery. I also have a terrible sense of direction and really, REALLY hate tomatoes.
Can I say what a special person Cara is with a special talent and ability. Very warm, caring, humorous, patient and understanding
