About me

My commitment to you is the freedom to choose a therapeutic plan to find the solutions for your issues, with an innate approach grounded in psychological practice.

How committed are you to take those important steps to make those essential changes in your life that have brought you to this website?

Are you reading this in desperation, having tried every other option and the problem remains unchanged ?

Well if you are serious I can offer you solutions and support to begin right now to change your life.

I'm Sue Ellen Draper-Todkill and I am a fully qualified Hypnotherapist. I have been a therapist for over 20 years and feel passionate about my work

Working with me, you have the comfort and assurance of a personalised therapy and treatment plan designed to suit your specific needs and circumstances – with as much or as little input from you as you wish. I can give you total reassurance that with me you are in a safe place and you are the one in control.


I use  highly effective hypnotherapy and where appropriate integrate with counselling, psychotherapy and CBT, according to your needs and wishes because you need changes in your life and you need them now. I provide all the additional tools you need to help support you in between your treatment sessions, for example coping strategies, email support and self-hypnosis support materials..


Your therapy begins after the Complimentary Consultation session when you can book your first session to ensure we make the best use of your time and money and achieve the outcomes you want. You will be listened to in complete confidentiality without being judged, in the calm, welcoming therapy room.


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.


As you are reading this, you have already taken the first step. To take the next step, I invite you discover the power of your own mind with Hypnotherapy, you are worth it. I welcome new clients and offer solutions for a wide variety of problems, you are welcome to contact me by phone or email to arrange your Complimentary Consultation session.
