I am a hypnotherapist, specialising in acute anxiety for adults and teenagers, in Marlow.  Offering tools and strategies using hypnotherapy & essential oils..

 

Hi, I’m Clare and welcome to Creating Calm

I guess you’ve found your way here because you, or someone you care about is struggling with anxiety.  Firstly, I want you to know that you’re in the right place. I know that when you are overwhelmed with these feelings, thoughts and fears, believing that you can overcome them or break free from them seems impossible, but I want you to know that there is a way.

I could tell you all about the training I have been through or the qualifications I have, but what you really want to know is if it is possible to live in a world without anxiety taking over, and it is. I help adults and teenagers learn to understand and work through their feelings. Recognising what is a normal human emotion and what is overwhelming anxiety is a major part of what I do to help people. The result? The opportunity to move forward leaving these crippling anxious feelings in the past whilst I help them learn techniques and tools which will help them in the future, no matter what life throws at you, so you don’t need to worry about that anxiety reappearing.

I know that you might feel that this is impossible right now, but I want you to know that it is, and when you are ready, get in touch and book your free consultation so that we can chat some more about how I can help. First though, why not have a look round my website and find out more about what I do and how I can help you or your teenager be anxiety free.

Managing Stress
