Cathy Cartwright Senior Lecturer CPHT NewcastleCathy Cartwright
Solution Focused Clinical Hypnotherapist, Psychotherapist and Supervisor

Cathy Cartwright is a graduate of the Clifton Practice Hypnotherapy Training (CPHT) having qualified in early 2016. Prior to this, Cathy began training in hypnotherapy in 2013 and by May 2014 had gained both a Certificate and Diploma in Therapeutic Hypnotherapy. In 2015, she approached the National Council for Hypnotherapy directly and went on to achieve the Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma (HPD), considered to be the gold standard in Hypnotherapy training. By this point, Cathy knew this was the area she wanted to work in and was very keen to build on her knowledge and skills in Hypnotherapy but was unsure of where to go to in order to get the training school she needed to help her to fulfil her ambitions.

During this time, Cathy was also working in schools. It was a chance conversation with her colleague who happened to mention the Clifton Practice that sparked Cathy’s interest and led her to contact the CPHT. This proved to be a major turning point for her. She was delighted to be signed up for the Diploma in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy as the CPHT is a recognised centre of excellence. “I found The Clifton Practice Hypnotherapy Training school exceptional. It really appealed to me as it provided ongoing support, CPD workshops, supervision and a fabulous network!”.

Cathy qualified in February 2016 and has never looked back! Cathy is committed to her ongoing professional development. She has attended a wide variety of CPD workshops and qualified as a Hypnotherapy Supervisor with the Clifton Practice.

Cathy runs a busy main Hypnotherapy practice with two further practices across the Rochdale areas, and thoroughly enjoys working with many different clients from all walks of life. She is very passionate about the work she does “I love what I do, seeing those positive changes in people, helping them to help themselves”
Cathy graduated from the University of Bolton in Teacher Training (2004), later adding to the mix, qualifications in Observing and Assessing (2007). She has thoroughly enjoyed teaching and assessing in Further Education, especially motivating and supporting adult learners on their journey toward their goals with helpings of humour along the way!

“Enabling people to achieve is my passion. Joining the CPHT team has undoubtedly been the best step I have taken to achieve my dreams. I am very proud to be a Senior Lecturer on the CPHT Newcastle team and look forward to helping others achieve theirs”.

PgCert Asperger Syndrome


I am a fully qualified and accredited Clinical Hypnotherapist and Supervisor working in and around South Gloucestershire,specifically Nailsworth,Stroud and Minchinhampton. For the past 30 years I have worked within the Voluntary Sector developing and managing services for people with the diagnosis of Asperger Syndrome.

I have a wealth of experience and knowledge about the complexities of supporting and providing services for vulnerable people and their Carer’s. One of the reasons that I originally trained as a Hypnotherapist was to offer support to the families experiencing such difficulties. I trained at the Prestigious Clifton Practice, a recognised Centre of Excellence for Solution focused Hypnotherapy. I hold the Hypnotherapy Practitioners Diploma, which is considered the ‘Gold Standard’ in Hypnotherapy Training.

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is a Powerful and Positive Tool to help people of All Ages and All Walks of Life bring about Exciting and Positive Changes to their Lives.
