As a full time professional in the medical field, I was high functioning in my life other than a dreaded fear of driving on highways that had burdened me for over 20 years. I started having panic attacks after a serious car accident, making it impossible for me to drive on the highway. I had sought help through my physician, counselling, biofeedback, acupuncture, self help books and CD’s, nothing seemed to help. I felt anxious, depressed and embarrassed about my inability to even drive to the airport.
A social worker suggested hypnotherapy. I was skeptical at first but thought I would give it a try. After 3 counselling sessions with Carole I was already starting to overcome my driving phobia. I was a bit nervous at first but soon I was soon able to drive to Kelowna with my husband, he was amazed. After a few more sessions I was able to drive on my own. I now drive to Kelowna on a regular basis without fear or panic attacks. Recently on a trip to Vancouver I rented a car in Vancouver and was able spend the weekend driving around big city without fear or anxiety.
I would highly recommend Carole Fawcett’s hypnotherapy expertise to anyone struggling to overcome fear,depression and anxiety.
Meeting Carole has changed my life and helped improve my self esteem and realize my goals.

I first went to see Carole for some personal issues when a friend recommended her. I knew very quickly that Carole was a truly caring person. Easy to talk to, completely non-judgmental, and has a great sense of humour and knows just when to inject it. She creats an environment of safety so as to allow you to open up, to make yourself vulnerable to start the healing.
I also did hypnotherapy with Carole to address my fear of heights. I did not have a need to experience great heights. But I did have a need to stop mental hangups getting in the way of experiencing life. I have done high rope challenges, narrow suspension bridges, and ziplined over very deep gullies, hundreds of feet above the treetops. And guess what? It's a blast!! Carole has helped me to be successful in my challenges, feel stronger, more independent, and what is interesting, is that I feel as though I am a bigger presence in the world. Thank you Carole for giving me a place and an opportunity to become a bigger part of my own life.
Carole, I would like to thank you for the series of 12 hypnotherapy sessions I had with you. There are so many positive changes happening in my life because of the work we did together.
I really wanted and believed I could change and I tried lots of therapies over many decades.
- I have stronger boundaries. I no longer have the ‘disease to please”.
- I am calmer and less reactive.
- I feel more in control of my emotions and my thoughts. I am aware of old patterns and beliefs that were deeply engrained in my subconscious and can easily identify when I am operating on the old system of "being".
- I am more aware of stress and its insidious way of affecting my body, so I use the techniques you gave me and I relax, coming into balance quickly.
- I laugh frequently.
- I have released baggage that was holding me back from fully engaging in life.
- I am moving with the flow of my life and no longer feel the ‘push against’ to survive.
- My relationships have improved.
- I am a happier person.
My Hypnotherapy sessions with you really worked for me. I have learned to trust myself, and I feel like my own best friend. It feels good.
Again, thank you.
1. Laurie: As a married gay couple, Mar and I were experiencing issues, both within the marriage and on a personal level as well. Turns out I had a lot more going on inside that was contributing to this. Not only did Carole help me with my original issue, but she changed my whole way of thinking, helped me to let go of past anger and how to have fun. She is a great listener, is very easy to talk to, and has the best laugh. Carole helped me change my life.
2. Mar: My wife, Laurie, has always encouraged me to try and deal with my childhood abuse issues and I thought I could handle it on my own. She made an appointment with Carole for herself, so I finally agreed that I needed help as well. I learned to trust Carole and she helped me change my life. Carole helped me to realize I do matter, and that I am important. I would strongly recommend Carole, as she is easy to talk to, and helps you to become a better you.
As a business owner of a growing health care company I see the effects of stress and the toll it takes on clients (the sick and their caregivers) not only in the acute phases of their illness, but the chronic stages as well. I am focused on prevention and know that Clinical Hypnotherapy is a great way to de-stress.
In fact, I personally experienced stress relief using Hypnotherapy with Carole. I would highly recommend this type of therapy for any type of stress related illness. (it feels good and you leave the office feeling sooooooooo relaxed and calm)
Thanks Carole, I feel like a new person.
Carole Fawcett's presentation on the topic of Hypnotherapy at the Philosopher's Café in Vernon, BC, on October 20, 2011, was extremely well received. Her intimate knowledge, training, and experience with hypnotherapy, combined with her warm personality and delightful sense of humour made the entire evening quite an enchanting event.
The fact that she has devoted her life to helping others became quite evident in the examples she related about peoples lives having been profoundly changed through the gentle use of therapeutic hypnosis, whereby the elimination of crippling fears was made possible. The topic in and of itself is quite mesmerizing and with Carole's gifted delivery, she not only piqued everyones interest but most certainly activated a personal desire to explore hypnotherapy further.

Carole presented an "Introduction to Hypnotherapy" to my Psychology 12 class.
She kept the kids engaged from the beginning and provided them with information - starting with an overview of the techniques; how mainstream medicine has accepted hynotherapy as a legitimate treatment and ended with a group hynosis.
The kids loved it and the atmosphere was fantastic!

I needed someone to hear me, with whom I could be vulnerable and confused and silly and not feel ashamed. That was Carole. Professional and warm, she graciously allowed me to flood her space with my "fountain of words." She believed in me and helped me discover that I already held the answers. Moreover, her hypnotherapy sessions provided a much needed emotional rest and spiritual rejuvenation. And to top it all off, she has a great giggle!
I have recently had three hypnotherapy sessions with Carole for my migraine headaches. These headaches have plagued me weekly for nearly 20 years. I have tried all the traditional, non-traditional and alternative ‘cures’ that were ever suggested to me. I booked my first session with Carole and listened to a hypnotherapy CD that Carole provided.
I have noticed the migraine headaches have lessened in intensity by 50% - 75% and I can often use over-the-counter pain medication instead of the prescription migraine meds. This is the only treatment during all these years that has had any effect on lessening my pain. I'm feeling optimistic that before too long I will be migraine-free.

Carole, I can't tell you how at peace I feel, I have a continuous grin on my face & my friends yesterday asked me "what has being going on, for I look 10 years younger & am so non-hyper". What a compliment!!! Thank you for helping me face and conquer my fear of heights. It has truly changed my life for the better. What a totally "awesome" feeling it is!
I liked Carole's ability to see the "situation" clearly. She was able to help me discover things I hadn't understood or thought about before, which brought clarity and I was then willing and able to let go.
Carole ensures that the client is the focus of any session and puts peole at ease very quickly. She shows empathy and she is very comfortable to talk to. She is a great listener and adapts to the specific needs of the client. She outlines the counselling process and ensures that the client can discuss anything without feeling any pressure or stigma. For my issues, Carole enables me to better understand my concerns and I know I am in good hands.
Carole observed very quickly that I was "in crisis" and instead of needing counselling, she assessed and ensured that I received immediate medical attention.
Thank you Carole for listening to me. I felt so "heard" and it was even better when I discovered, with your guidance, that I knew the answers all along. I learned how to listen to myself. What a gift you have given me. Thank you so much.
