Your Journey Begins Here

Discussing mental health can be daunting; it's a topic that often stays buried beneath layers of discomfort. Yet, navigating through mental health challenges doesn't have to be a solitary journey. Many of us face these struggles at some point in our lives, feeling overwhelmed or uncertain about where to turn. The World Health Organisation claim that two-thirds of people affected never seek help from a mental health professional. Remember, you're not alone in this. Together, we can navigate through the tough times and find light amidst the darkness.

This is where I can help.

My name is Francis Carter and I am an experienced solution focussed hypnotherapist, with a background in coaching and counselling.  I combine psychotherapy techniques with hypnosis and coaching to help people like you achieve balance, purpose, focus and happiness in your life.


Whether you are feeling anxious, stressed, depressed, or stuck in a job you hate, I can help.  If you lack motivation to reach your goals or are just generally feeling frustrated and fed up with things right now, my techniques can help you break through that.  If you struggle with OCD, are scared of spiders, enclosed spaces, or simply feel awkward amongst strangers – I can help.


Solution focused hypnotherapy can help you get back on track by positively guiding you to make small changes on the path to your life goals and to becoming the best version of yourself.


With a degree in Counselling, Coaching and Mentoring, I have gone on to obtain qualifications in both Solution focussed Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy, I now run a private practice helping people like you.  I am based in Manchester, but over the last year have conducted most of my sessions virtually via video call, which has shown to be just as effective as in-person sessions and I see the future as a blended approach between the two.

What is hypnotherapy?

Firstly, please forget about all the television images of circus performers using their pocket watches to send you to sleep.  Hypnotherapy is an approved treatment to help improve people’s state of mind and overcome fears they may have.  At its heart is a qualified hypnotherapist who helps you reach into a trance-like state in which you have heightened focus and concentration.  Hypnotherapy is simply psychotherapy techniques aided with hypnosis


It is a treatment recognised by the NHS (albeit rarely offered by them, hence why private practices like Introspection Hypnotherapy have been set up).

I am interested - what next?

I would imagine that this may be a new experience for you, so this may be daunting – in which case – congratulations on getting this far in wanting to resolve your concerns – whatever they may be.  Hypnotherapy is not for everyone.  As a result, our first session will always be FREE.


At that first session, we will discuss your reason for coming to me, and then how the therapy works and I will help you with the foundations of a treatment plan.  This will be personal to you, and will fit around your life – at Introspection Hypnotherapy we can be very flexible with the frequency and type of sessions – For the time being I work remotely over video call.


Each person is different, but to give you an indication of how much this may cost – a typical ten-session treatment plan to address deep-rooted anxiety would cost around £80 per session. 


Savings are available for those who pay for blocks of sessions up-front, all of this will be discussed during the FREE initial consultation.


As a first step, please complete the form below to send me an email and we can set up an initial consultation.  I look forward to speaking with you and seeing how I can help.
