A few words about myself

Carolyne Ash-Brazier, BA. Dip, NCHP, CUCG, BSCH (Assoc.), CHBP, Dip CBH

I am a qualified Psychotherapist, Counsellor, Cognitive Behavioural Clinical Hypnotherapist and Life Coach in Kingston upon Thames. I have been in private practice since 1999. I use a variety of techniques with my clients depending on their needs.  These include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP), Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy and EMDR.  I am also a children's therapist using hypnosis, CBT, mindfulness and NLP. 

My work with you will enable you to change your beliefs and habits from unpleasant events or debilitating phobias to more helpful, confident and positive beliefs and habits.

The beauty of combining other therapies with hypnosis is treatment is usually short, approximately 1 to 6 weeks, this of course depends on each individual.

I began my training in psychotherapy and clinical hypnosis with the National College of Hypnosis and Psychotherapy where I was lucky enough to train with the highly regarded Dr John Butler. I continued my training with the UK College of Hypnosis combining CBT with Clinical Hypnotherapy. I trained in CBT with SDS Seminars Ltd,  specialist training in psychology and psychotherapy and accredited by the British Psychological Society. I hold a certificate in Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy and EMDR.

I furthered my training with the Centre for Applied Positive Psychology and then Coach U, USA whose founder Thomas Leonard first established life coaching. 

I am also a qualified Easibirthing® Practitioner working with women and their partners to have a more calm, relaxed, safe and prepared pregnancy and birth experience. 

As an eternal student I am always continuing to learn new and emerging techniques that will inspire and enhance sessions with my clients so that they can truly be the people they want to be and achieve the permanent changes they desire and deserve.

What my Clients say:

Self-esteem and Confidence: “…sometimes you have to revisit your past to go forward in life.  Sometimes you just can’t see the wood for the trees.  I was in that position and deeply unhappy.  Being a client of Carolyne Ash-Brazier helped me go forward.  I now have the ability to achieve my goals rather than just dream about them.  Getting in touch with Carolyne was a big step and I now realise how lucky I was to have come across The Really Useful Life Coach advert.  If it wasn’t for Carolyne I wouldn’t have gone on the correct path to achieve my college certificate, as now I have a new career path and can truly say I am the happiest I have EVER been….”  Jo McCormick

Panic Attacks: “I went to see Carolyne to help me overcome a problem which had undermined me since my early teens - blushing.  My sessions with Carolyne helped me to explore the underlying causes of this embarrassing problem and together we worked on ways to overcome it.  My friends noticed that I blushed far less frequently after only a few sessions and I now feel in control, which is so liberating.  I am extremely grateful for all Carolyne’s help and can recommend her confidently to anyone looking for help.”  Annmarie Boyle
