Who I work with

At Inspired to Change I work with people who are experiencing an emotional or physical issue which is holding them back or who are struggling to cope with life’s challenges and adapting to change. Often they have tried other approaches to move forward but ultimately they still feel unhappy or stuck. People just like you. 

Regardless of what brings people to see us they all have one thing in common:

  • They are motivated to get better, cope better or be better
  • They are ready to get their lives on track
  • They are inspired to change

And that is what I am passionate about and skilled at helping people to do!

In addition to the many different issues that the solution focused approach is effective at helping my personal passion is helping people with Anxiety, Stress, Confidence, Motivation and Work/Life Balance.

She is kind, thoughtful and made me feel extremely comfortable and excited to sort through what ailed me. It was also an incredibly relaxing and peaceful experience- I remember leaving every session feeling like I had had a spa treatment! thank you Caroline.Lily H.Lily H. ★★★★★ Caroline at Inspired to Change has changed my life!

I needed all these things. After a tough couple of years with layer upon layer of change, challenge, disappointments and grief I needed to do something for me.While I count myself as pretty resilient my confidence and optimism had taken quite a knock. I wanted to feel freer, lighter in every sense of the word.I felt stuck. This was all hidden and would be a surprise to most people. I was still achieving all sorts of things and successfully coaching others but I wasn't walking my talk.Caroline helped me to come unstuck. To reach what was in me all along. To realise that I get to choose. I have the answers inside me. That there are endless opportunities and possibilities if I set the right intentions, make the right choices for me.I am feeling more confident, alive with ideas and ready to face whatever comes my way. This has been an absolutely liberating experience.For any doubters out there have a free chat with Caroline to see what you think. You won't regret it. 5 minutes in I just knew that Caroline could help me and started to feel better before my first real consultation. If you're looking for some real life magic - from within then don't hesitate!Response from the ownerthank you so much for sharing your experience of working with me Ceri - this totally sums up why I love working the way I do, helping people to unlock what is already there but has, perhaps got pushed down because of life circumstances. Keep up the amazing work - it has been a pleasure to watch you grow and develop through our work together 🙂 Andrew C.Andrew C. ★★★★★ After years of pain & uncertainty due to Fibromyalgia, I met Caroline as she was working with my employer on stress reducing techniques. I have since had several sessions over the last few months, my background pain is virtually gone, I sleep better and am more positive than ever. If you are suffering with anxiety, phobias or chronic illness, i couldn't recommend Caroline highly enough.Philip K.Philip K. ★★★★★ Very highly recommended. Caroline has a genuine gift and a real commitment to helping people.Fantastic combination of explaining how the brain works and exploring where your thought processes are, along with an actual solution to help you to improve your life.Response from the ownerThanks Philip - I'm so pleased you're finding sessions so helpful! Animal O.Animal O. ★★★★★ It's fascinating to work with Caroline! Whether you have a phobia, severe stress or just things in your life that need to be unpicked, she's got the skills to help. I had a few sessions to help me sort out some exciting but challenging situations and she was so helpful. What's more she knows the science behind what she's doing. If you have a something that is niggling at you, scaring you or stopping you from being your best, book to see her now!Response from the ownerThanks Claire - it really has been a pleasure to work with you! Mick J.Mick J. ★★★★★ I was showing a split-personality where I was very patient at work but very short tempered at home. Having had different therapy in the past for different issues hypnotherapy was very successful dealing with work-stress years before. Caroline came heavily recommended and has been a genius. She guided me with care and in-depth knowledge to allow me to discover I had the ability to choose how to act rather than act/react automatically.I found the experience very refreshing, easy, thought provoking and enjoyable. I felt totally at ease and safe. The knowledge level was so high with so many different experiences to explain to me to help me understand and change.I now have a total balance between work and home, a much happier relationship and so much contentment. I now choose how to react and respond which is so refreshing.Different things work for different people however in the hand of a good hypnotherapist, this journey can be very rewarding and make a huge difference. I've used different therapy but this was by far the easiest & most successful.Mick, Burton LatimerHelen D.Helen D. ★★★★★ I went to Caroline to find out about weight-loss and if she could help me. I loved her style, her easy to understand language and kind manner. She is a credit to the profession and I urge anyone who thinks hypnotherapy may help them to talk to Caroline Prout.Mary C.Mary C. ★★★★★ Caroline is inspirational and shows you the way to work through the thunder clouds that can appear in your life and helps you through to the blue sky beyond. She is always professional and after each session it feels as though you have just had the most relaxing weekend and ready to face the week ahead . Thank you Caroline.js_loader

    I empower people to take back control of their lives and go from surviving life to thriving in life! 

    Having lived so much of my life through the lens of anxiety it is my mission to help others to be their best! My fear of not being good enough drove me to work harder and harder to the point of physical burn out and a diagnosis of M.E. It was on my journey to recovery that I learnt a different way to live my life, free of anxiety, stress and overwhelm. So I know what it takes to wrestle back that control, to build your confidence and move forward in to your best life! 

    Using my training in Neuroscience, Hypnotherapy and coaching I will guide you to unlock the power of your brain, take back control from the exhaustion of stress and anxiety to build your confidence and self esteem and discover the best version of you!  

    I qualified from the Clifton Practice Hypnotherapy Training School (CPHT) in 2013, one of the leading schools in the UK, and am qualified at HPD level. I am a member of the National Council for Hypnotherapy the UK’s leading not-for-profit professional association as well as the Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy and the Complementary and Natural Health Care Council.

    I use a clinically proven Solution Focused approach to help with a wide range of mental and physical health related issues, including stress, anxiety and overwhelm, fears and phobias, depression and panic attacks, confidence and self-esteem, focus and motivation. Due to my own personal experiences I have also chosen to specialise in some key areas.


    Are you ready to discover who you can really be? 


    • Stress & Anxiety
    • Work Life Balance
    • Motivation
    • Auto Immune Condition
    • Confidence
    • Business Success

    How much does it cost?

    I offer a FREE Initial Consultation to help me better understand how I can help you.  Hypnotherapy sessions after that can be paid for as you go at £90 a session, or most of my clients opt for the savings that come with purchasing a package of 6 sessions for £450.

      Practice Info


      From Thrapston – come over Nine Arches bridge and continue straight up Kettering Road, past the Garage, we are half way up the hill opposite the layby and village sports field.

      From the A14 – take junction 12 towards Corby and the A6116. Take the 3rd exit off the first mini roundabout towards Islip, pull in to the layby immediately after Toll Bar lane on your left and we are opposite.


      Free parking is available in the layby opposite or further up the hill.


      We are situated on a hill so the driveway leading up to the property is sloped and there are steps leading up to the front door. If you are concerned that this may cause difficulties please contact me so we can make alternative arrangements for your therapy sessions.

      Gina in Kettering

      Other things I do at Inspired to Change


      Do you have a chronic condition but struggle to manage it?

      Are you fed up of feeling tired all the time?

      Do you struggle to get through your normal daily routine?

      Are the doctors unable to give you a definitive diagnosis?


      I chose to retrain as a hypnotherapist after my own anxiety led to physical health problems and a diagnosis of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

      “One of the things that helped me the most in my recovery was understanding how our brains work and why that can have such a huge impact on our wellbeing, both physical and mental and this is something I now share with all my clients”.

      Using my own experiences and training I specialise in helping people overcome anxiety and chronic conditions such as CFS/ M.E, Fibromyalgia and other autoimmune conditions.

      One of the things I found particularly difficult in my own recovery was that no one that was helping me actually understood what I was going through. They were able to tell me from a professional point of view what might help, but none of them had been there, none of them had experienced what I was going through so they didn’t understand that what they were asking me to do might be unrealistic or how hard it would be to do it.

      Many people that I have spoken to since have had similar experiences and I realised that I was in a unique position to be able to couple my personal experience with my professional knowledge and support people through their own journey to recovery.

      As a solution focused hypnotherapist I know how the brain works.  I know that having the right knowledge isn’t enough to ensure your recovery, it’s not as simple as that!  This is your recovery and your journey might be different from the next persons.

      Energise Me is a simple four step process to guide you through your recovery:

        Reconnecting with you, with your goals, your aspirations, your vision of what you want to be able to achieve and your belief that recovery is possible
      • RECOVER
        Understand what your mind and your body needs to recover and choose which actions to take at your pace to bring you back to health
      • RENEW
        Renew your life so you can come out the other side of this not just surviving but thriving!
        Craft your own maintenance programme so you can maintain your recovery long term

      Our lives stall for a reason.  Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is often an outcome of long term stress and anxiety or trauma in your life. In order to recover we need to listen to those messages and do something different!

      To find out what it’s like working with me towards your recovery give me a call on 07729 801 247.  

      I offer a FREE initial consultation and online session options.
