Carlie Fairbrother 


Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapist in Congleton, Cheshire

Hi I’m Carlie, I am a UKCP Psychotherapist in Congleton and A CNHC Registered Hypnotherapist.

I do love an about page, I like learning about people, but this is about you, not me, so let me tell you the things you may find useful…

Therapy was always where I intended to be, but I had to take my own journey, in my own time to get here. That journey started in a therapy chair, as a client.

Having initially embarked upon a career in dentistry, I hit a point where all of the struggles I’d encountered throughout life, which I tried hard to ignore, brought me to a standstill. Someone reached their hand out to me and I spent time getting to know myself, challenging myself and re-evaluating many aspects of the way I was living, where I was going and why…

It was through doing the work on myself that I was able to embark upon my extensive training with the National College of Hypnosis and Psychotherapy, where I qualified as a hypno-psychotherapist with distinction.

I also hold a Post-Graduate Certificate in Hypnosis and Related Techniques with distinction from the British Society of Clinical and Academic Hypnosis and am an EMDR Therapist.

I am fully registered and accredited with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and am registered with the Complementary and Natural Health Care Council (CNHC).

My approach to therapy is one which holds the relationship as central to the process, because it is through relationships that people come to understand themselves. I work in a solution-focused way, by which I mean that I always keep where you want to be at the forefront of our work, I offer you a relationship which is safe and supportive to help you reach your goals for therapy. 

I bring a range of approaches and utilise the latest research to help you get to where you want to be.
