My name is Carol Hickson.

I am an EFT Practitioner, Hypnotherapist, Life Coach, Mindfulness Teacher and Reiki Practitioner at Crescent Therapy, in Northwich, Cheshire.

I am a former Secondary French and Spanish teacher with 20 years pastoral experience working directly with children and their families.

I came to therapy because of my own personal experience which the medical profession, although diligent, had not been able to resolve. A combination of bereavements, work related stress and chronic pain led to a four-year bout of chronic insomnia, which left me debilitated and exhausted. I managed to overcome these by seeking an holistic way to self-heal. In my experience, acceptance is the key, saying ‘Yes, I have this problem’ opens the door to self-compassion, forgiveness and gratitude.

My qualifications include:

B.A. (Hons) Education First Class.

P.G.C.E Secondary Languages.

Accredited Certified EFT Practitioner Level 1 & 2.

Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy with the Manchester College of Coaching and Hypnotherapy.

Certificate in Life Coaching.

Mindfulness Teacher.

Reiki 2nd degree in the Usui System of Natural Healing.
