Sandy Sommer-Wood BA (Hons), MA, DipHypPsych, EFT Advanced Practitioner
Holistic Health Clinic
53 Beaconsfield Road
I’m a fully qualified Solution-Focused Psychotherapist,Hypnotherapist and mentor and advanced EFT tapping practitioner and trainer. I love what I do and have seen the most amazing changes in people’s lives.
Solution-focused therapy takes a positive approach. While conventional talk therapy often explores problems in depth, we aim to find solutions.
Hypnotherapy is an effective tool that is often used as part of establishing that solution and achieving that goal. Hypnosis is basically a guided visualisation which puts the client in a deeply relaxed state where they can access their unconscious mind to change old patterns and establish new more beneficial ones. The client is conscious yet relaxed during the process and fully aware of what is going on.
I'm also an advanced EFT practitioner and trainer. EFT tapping (Emotional Freedom Technique) is a powerful tool to release negative emotions, trauma and unhelpful habits. Free yourself from old anger, anxiety, depression or addiction. This powerful technique helps people realise what their hidden barriers are, assists in letting them go in order to make profound and lasting changes
The combination of psychotherapy, hypnotherapy and EFT tapping is remarkable and allows me to tailor each session to the client's individual needs. My approach has been effective with a wide variety of challenges and I have an extremely high success rate with clients.
“I am so grateful to have met Sandy. I have found my sessions with her to be so valuable for the maintenance of my mental health. Suffering from depression and anxiety, I found the combination of techniques have been amazing. Sandy, has a brilliant approach which is calming, kind and understanding. I have had several ‘wow’ moments in sessions which have led to better clarity." Olivia, August 2016
