BEC Hypnotherapy
Tailored hypnotherapy in Sheffield.



I'm Barbara Carlin and I practice hypnotherapy in Sheffield.

I am a professionally qualified Clinical Hypnotherapist who has experience of working with a wide variety of emotional difficulties and habit breaking issues. I trained with the South West School of Clinical Hypnotherapy where I gained my Diploma and am a full member of The Hypnotherapy Association.

I am especially used to dealing with individuals suffering from high stress levels or panic attacks, gaining additional experience from family members who have high functioning autism. I have learned much about the benifits of staying calm and the need to communicate effectively.

As a community volunteer I support vunerable people with a range of complex needs. I do this by being compassionate, empathetic and a good listener and knowing to refer on to other services when necessary.

What is hypnosis?

Hypnosis is a distinctive, often trance-like mental state that is induced by an organized pattern of suggestions. It is a natural state of heightened awareness, where you are able to open your mind to beneficial suggestions and where you can make use of your imagination to help make positive changes in your life. It may be induced by a hypnotist in the presence of the subject, but may also be self-induced.


How is it different from other therapies?

Hypnotherapy is a brief strategic therapy that is aimed specifically at finding a resolution to your problem as quickly, safely and efficiently as possible. It is not a long drawn out method of solving a problem. A skilled hypnotherapist will have the ability during a case study to ascertain which techniques will bring about the swiftest, safest and most suitable resolution to your situation.
