HOW HYPNOTHERAPY CAN HELP
Hypnotherapy can do amazing things. You already have the power within your own subconscious mind to resolve issues and make the changes you want to make, you probably just haven’t realised it yet!
Hypnotherapy enables you to access your subconscious mind in a calm, focused way so you can make amazing changes and be who you want to be. It’s not a miracle cure – you are your own miracle.
If you're worried about any part of your life, or feel anxious and out of balance, find it difficult to let go of problems, feel unable to cope, exhausted, feel like you’re just existing rather than living, don’t wait any longer to do something about it.
I’d like to invite you to come along and find out how I can help you, and if you’re worried about a loved one, friend or relative, you can pass on my information to them. Working with someone who listens empathically and professionally with no emotional involvement or hidden agenda can enable you resolve your problems and take control to improve your health, happiness and well-being.

RECENT CLIENT TESTIMONIAL
Hi Sue. Firstly I want to say 'thank you' again for your amazing help in enabling me to access my inner resources to gain control of my lifestyle. Life is so much better now that I am living a healthier way, I continue to exercise 'mindfulness' most days.
We have been away for a couple of holidays since we last spoke and I have enjoyed a glass of wine occasionally with my husband, but no more than 2 glasses!
I would be happy for you to use my experience in your work:-
'I approached Sue when I knew that I did not have the ability to control my desire for 'a glass of wine' at tea time' which always led to one or two more after tea!, this had become a habit and certainly wasn't healthy. Moreover, social occasions usually meant I got a little tipsy - much to my partner's dismay!
I had also become overweight which concerned me too - health guidelines meant I could be a candidate for diabetes, heart problems etc.
When I approached Sue I asked if hypnotherapy could help me, her responding 'yes' was like a lifeline to me. We had a consultation the same day and talked for an hour, where Sue asked me if I had any other issues that I wanted to deal with. At home, I filled in a questionnaire and returned it to her by email, 5 days later I had my first session of therapy, and amazingly I was able to take control of my 'habit' immediately. By week four I had also lost 4 kilos in weight, and Sue and I agreed that I was now in a position to move forward with the inner tools she had enabled me to take hold of - I will be eternally grateful for her expertise and help, and would certainly recommend this therapy.' Sue W
ps: my weight loss is now 5 kilos
