Sarah Perks DSFH HPD MNCH (Reg.)
I am a hypnotherapist who works with people suffering from anxiety and stress, people who have lost their confidence and feel they are no longer in control of their lives. Sometimes a phobia can be stopping a client from following their dream whether it's a trip of a lifetime or a new job. Often clients will say to me that they know they aren't happy and they don't know how to make things better.
My job is to help my clients get back control of their lives, help them to regain their confidence and live their lives the way they want to.
I use a solution focused approach, I only focus on the future and how we can achieve positive outcomes rather than dwelling on the past. I use a simple 5 step process which can turn people's lives around in as little as 6 weeks. I help them to understand why they are suffering in the way they are, help them to set positive goals for the future, identify and undo any negative behaviour patterns that may be holding them back, create positive new behaviour patterns and habits and lock those in for permanent change.

Some client testimonials:
Before my sessions with Sarah I suffered with anxiety, confidence and anger to the point where it was interfering with my everyday work and personal life. So I was advised that hynotheorpy was an effective option. This was something I was a little skeptical about before but now I have full faith in it!
From the beginning Sarah had said to me that she was no miracle worker and that the majority of the work had to come from myself. This at first I was unsure of but after following her instruction on homework and then relaying it back to her in sessions I slowly felt things were looking more positive. The sessions were always warm and welcoming but never condescending, which I have felt before with a counsellor. Our sessions were always calm and I loved the fact we never dwelled on the past it's so refreshing to work towards the future you!
I still to this day write down my positives in my notebook and they grow every day. I find I don't have as many meltdowns during the weeks over petty things because I can let most of it go. Sarah has helped me massively to be strong in my work environment as well as in a public one. She has helped me find small solutions to prevent stress for myself! I also continue to listen to her therapy tape and intend to in the future as I think it was always help me!
If you’re thinking of using hypnotherapy don't judge it before you try it!!! It's something that not a lot of people know about and it's extremely interesting to know how your brain works and why we think, react and do the things we do. It's also a really relaxed treatment, and shouldn't be confused with what you see on TV.
Having heard positive comments about Hypnotherapy from friends, I decided it may be just the sort of thing I was looking for. My work life was causing me some stress, mainly due to the extra responsibilities required in my new role. And, in my personal life, I was still trying to adjust after the break-up of my 28 year marriage and grown up children leaving home.
I found Sarah to be positive and encouraging. From our first session I found Sarah to be helpful and, most important for me, empowering. I wanted to take control of my situation and find a different way of viewing things which Sarah helped me to do. Sarah has a lovely gentle manner which I easily responded to. What I particularly appreciated was the way she guided me into recognising that it is ME who changes the way I think and feel about things. That, in itself, was a revelation and I love the confidence that gives.
I have learnt such a lot about the way my brain works, thanks to Sarah’s coaching. What that has done is help me to see certain situations in a different way. Rather than instinctively reacting, I am learning to think before I act. I am so very grateful for Sarah’s help in this. I had a built in response to particular things which had a profoundly negative affect on me and could overshadow the rest of my day. Breaking that cycle has been empowering. Being taught that I was in control of my feelings, and not the other way round, has given me such confidence. That is, and will continue to be, of such value to me.
I would, without reservation, recommend the use of hypnotherapy. I know how it has helped me. For anyone who may be feeling a little nervous about taking that first session I would urge them to pluck up their courage and go. You will never know unless you try. I can assure them that they will be so happy that they did!
I work Monday to Friday from 8.30 am to 9.00pm
