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, or your teenager 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 how their mind affects their mood and the tools and strategies to reduce anxious feelings, stress levels and low mood, increasing confidence, motivation and feelings of calm.
I can work with just you, just your teenager or both of you together, whichever you feel works best. My sessions with you are an hour long and designed to introduce some long lasting tools and techniques to address the issues which you or your teen may be facing so they can be applied in everyday life.
If you’re looking for help with something that isn’t anxiety, but you’re wondering if hypnotherapy can help you, then I may be able to help and offer guidance on ways to deal with these concerns through this therapy.
My aim is to make my tools and techniques as accessible as possible to as many people as I can. I have developed some short, manageable online programs to introduce you to an understanding of the brain, both teenager and adult and how it can impact on our mood and behaviour
The teenage years can bring up all kinds of challenges for young people, their parents and the entire family. And as a mum to two teenage boys, I know we all could do with a gentle go-to guide to help us navigate the ups and downs of these tricky times.
That’s why I wrote this book. Based on my professional experience, my growing expertise in the field of teenage mental health, and reflections on my teenage years, I have created a digestible blend of practical, helpful, informative advice
