Meet your online therapist
My name is Francesco Carco, born in Italy and now a British subject, practising as a multi-discipline online therapist. Just like you I have lived many adventures and misadventures like those including trauma and depression. I have had to make many changes of mindset. These were a necessity to successfully support myself as a teenager, raise a family while studying and working, and now for those I help through multi-discipline online therapy.
Sadly, at the age of 3 I lost my mother to suicide. Naturally, it upset my childhood but even then, I still had big dreams of becoming an airplane pilot. I did eventually qualify as both a pilot and air traffic controller. Later I became an Italian Navy Officer, serving two conflicts in the Balkans. After leaving the Navy, now with all my childhood dreams met, I headed for another adventure, this time abroad.
I took a big leap and moved to the UK to learn English. Happily, that leap of faith paid off. I met my wife with whom I have two children, both in their teens. Even took the oath to queen and country and became a British Citizen. Since arriving I have graduated with a BEng Hons degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering, specialising in telecommunications. This qualification enabled the next stage in my career working in the ICT and telecommunications industry, including Nortel Networks, Vodafone, and NTT.
Over two decades I experienced all the stressful challenges of sales and business targets of these big corporations. Unfortunately, I was one of the thousands that were made redundant by a large telecom provider in 2015. Dealing with redundancy and some other life situations I became depressed and was prescribed anti-depressants to cope with my challenges. These did not make me feel better. For 6 months they only seemed to numb my brain as if I had been doped. So, instead of medicines I needed to find another way. I did so by learning the tools of cognitive techniques and mindfulness to better handle my depression and get back to my normal self again.
This period of depression gave me time to reappraised by lifestyle. I realised I wanted something more gratifying than my past career experience. Based on my studies of cognitive techniques and mindfulness I decided this would be my course of action. Since then, I have been certified as a Licensed Practitioner of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) and Hypnosis by the co-founder of this Technique, Richard Bandler. Fascinated by the power of our brain and its complex functionality, I attended a weekend retreat with Paul McKenna and Steve Crabb where I experienced the efficacy of Hypnotherapy and Havening. I am now a fully qualified Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapist, an NLP and Havening Practitioner, and I hold qualifications as Mindfulness Teacher and Life Coach. Recently applied to work for anxiety uk.
Despite countless push backs I have always made a comeback. The turbulence in my own life and how to overcome them has been a great help in becoming a tutor of change management. With every knock down I received I grew stronger.
Now I want to help you do the same. Become your own master of change management and set yourself free from the trauma, anxiety, and depression.
Studies and diplomas
The qualifications have been carefully selected to learn the practical keys to unlocking your confidence, authenticity and happiness, and leaving anxiety, loneliness, traumas, phobias and depression behind.
Reiki Healing I & II
Reiki is a form of alternative therapy commonly referred to as energy healing. It emerged in Japan in the late 1800’s and it involve the use of a technique called “Palm Healing” that allows the transfer of universal energy from the practitioner’s palms to the patient, in order to encourage emotional and physical well being.
NLP & Hypnotherapist
Neuro-Linguistic Programming was specifically created to allow us to do magic by creating new ways of understanding how verbal and non-verbal communication affect the human brain. It allows us to communicate better, and to learn how to gain control over what we considered automatic functions of our own neurology.
The Havening Techniques are healing modalities, which are designed to help individuals overcome problems that are the consequence of traumatic encoding. The Havening Techniques belong to a larger group of methods called psycho-sensory therapies, which use sensory input to alter thought, mood, and behaviour.
Hypno-CBT is a trade mark of “The UK College of Hypnosis & Hypnotherapy”. HCBT is a tight integration of social, cognitive and behavioural psychology with traditional hypnotism .Thanks to this teaching I have the tools and techniques to be able to practice as an evidence-based Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapist.
