Sally Benson SQHP MHS - Senior Clinical Hypnotherapist
Leeds & Bradford Hypnotherapy Clinic
Suite 4 Tong Hall
07952 671 551 / 0113 805 4656
I am a fully qualified Practitioner of Clinical Hypnotherapy with extensive experience in the private and corporate sector and work from Tong Hall, a Grade 1 listed mansion & in the heart of Leeds City Centre. Having gained my original Diploma in 2005, I have since completed over 300 hours of advanced training in the areas of Pain Management, Advanced Analytical Hypnotherapy, Medical Hypnotherapy and Hypnosis for Therapeutic Transformation with The British Society of Hypnotherapists (est 1950), the longest established professional organisation for Hypnotherapy in the UK.
As an integrated therapist with over 20 years combined experience, you can feel assured that you will be dealt with in a professional and caring manner and work towards the solutions you seek for yourself or your business.
As part of my practice I specialise in developing unique self-help CD’s/MP3’s which are widely used in the Private, Corporate and insurance sector. Theses have been enjoyed by and greatly benefited thousands of individuals over the years.
Hypnotherapy provides a most effective method to understand and heal the roots of psychological problems and create changes in mental processes and behaviours. It is increasingly being seen by the general public and professionals alike as a highly effective therapy for a wide range of psychological, behavioural and psychosomatic problems.
I aim to help people find meaningful alternatives to their present, unsatisfactory ways of thinking, feeling or behaving and to transform the lives of people who have been programmed over the years for failure, frustration and unhappiness.
My clinical experience is widely utilised as I currently tutor trainee Hypnotherapists in Leeds, Sheffield and Hull and run corporate training programmes throughout the UK

Quit smoking Programme: £185.00
This one session programme deals directly with all the reasons you started smoking in the first place, followed by education and finally the release of the old habit through an effective re-programming of the sub-concious. You can then leave free of the restraint that smoking used to put upon you. 95% of all ex-smokers who have quit through my programme have not returned to smoking during the first 3 years of updates.
Gastric Band Programme £285.00
Whilst the precise causes of IBS are not known it is widely accepted that stress plays a major part. Symptoms vary from person to person, ranging from being a nuisance for some to seriously affecting quality of life for others.
According to the British Medical Association, around 71 percent of patients said that hypnotherapy successfully improved their condition, with positive effects that lasted up to 5 years. Many also found that hypnosis significantly helped to reduce levels of anxiety and depression associated with the condition.
A course of hypnotherapy will uncover the root cause of this underlying stress and reprogram the subconscious which will assist to modifying this negative issue. This should assist you in the ability to move forwards in your life and to lead a happy and fulfilling future. An extensive consultation, clinical hypnotherapy sessions, teaching you self-hypnosis and bespoke CD/MP3’s will be included in the programme.
In today’s society, we are almost forced to 'get on with it' when it comes to pain management. Waiting times are increasing in Doctors surgeries and people are in genuine pain on a day to day basis. Pain is the body’s signal that something is wrong, and the causes of chronic pain should be thoroughly investigated before a Hypnotherapist is consulted.
I assist clients who are suffering from physical conditions that have been diagnosed and treated with conventional Western medicine. Using analytical hypnotherapy to help uncover psychological factors involved in various psychosomatic conditions or that exacerbate various physical health problems.
I will help you deal with day to day pain more effectively and teach you tools so that you can take charge of your health and feel more in control. This will be done through an extensive consultation, clinical hypnotherapy sessions, teaching you self-hypnosis and bespoke CD/MP3's.
