The Story of Charlotte Spivey and White Willow Hypnotherapy

The Story of Charlotte Spivey and White Willow Hypnotherapy

When I discovered Charlotte on social media I had to get in touch with her since I feel mental health and therapy is a subject that many readers are likely to connect with. Guaranteed we all know someone who has or is suffering from depression, panic attacks and anxiety. I for one didn't realise how common these were until I went to university, where many of my fellow students have created projects based around mental health and have used photography as a therapeutic tool. Charlotte treats adults as well as children, and in this post I'll be sharing her story of becoming a Hypnotherapist and starting White Willow Hypnotherapy to treat adults.

I first discovered Sarah Ellen's jewellery and card designs in Shop in the Square where I was drawn to the masses of sparkle, glitter and colour.

The Story of Designer Maker Charlotte Clark and A Look Inside Her Workshop

On a sunny Friday morning I arrived at Charlotte's workshop in Wellington, and stepping inside I was impressed with the size of it. I firstly entered a considerably large showroom where all of Charlotte's products are displayed, ranging from cushions, mugs, prints, brooches and much more. From here I was lead through to the workshop which was an even larger space storing her stock on shelves, a workspace in the centre of the room and also a desk on one side for the non-creative but necessary admin related work that can't be neglected. If you carry on past this area, theres's another little room where the kiln's are stored, which are usually full of new products waiting to be finished and put on to display in the showroom or sold in Shop in the Square.
