Carole Wan started Life Solutions after qualifying in Hypnosis and Stress Management in 1992. I have offered talking therapies in Derbyshire since then. My qualifications include Medical and Clinical Hypnosis, coaching, counselling and a range of psychological therapies including EMDR, CBT and Solution Focused Therapy.
Along with my partner, Alan Cooper, we run validated training in hypnotherapy and psychotherapy. You can find out more about our training HERE. We also work together for partners seeking relationship counselling.
Although I work with a wide variety of problems, I have a particular interest in anxiety and lack of confidence in people of all ages. Many of my clients are children and teens. You can read about some of the issues I treat HERE.

The Legacy of Pandemic Anxiety
Anxiety disorders are the most common mental health disorder in the world today. In 2020, almost 300 million people were diagnosed with an anxiety disorder. Any major upheaval can cause a rise in anxiety and depression (which are often co-morbid). We have seen this in individual countries, such as the financial crisis that severely impacted Greece. Now we can study the worldwide effect of a global disruption. The impact has particularly affected younger people.
As we gradually revert to ‘normal’ and re-engage in social interaction, it is possible that younger people will feel an increase in anxiety. People in general are feeling exhausted, burned out and mentally unstable. Social anxiety – already a common illness of the young – is on the increase.
Why We Need to Manage Stress
“Stressed nation: 74% of UK 'overwhelmed or unable to cope' at some point in the past year.”
This was the headline of a following a UK-wide survey commissioned and published by mentalhealth.org.uk in 2022.
