My name is Alison Clarke-Sargent and I am a Clinical Hypnotherapist. I am able to offer a varied approach to any problem or condition, using a combination of Neuro Linguistic Programming, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Emotional Freedom Technique and counselling. The hypnotic trance is a state of deep relaxation and inner concentration which we slide in and out of naturally, every day, without consciously realising it.
Having qualified in hypnotherapy with the Institute of Clinical Hypnotherapy at Kings College London (the ICH is renowned for being one of the most prestigious training schools) I then went on to complete both my Diploma in Psychotherapy and my Masters. I also completed a Foundation degree in hypnotherapy with the National Council of Hypnotherapy.
I also work with the National Smoking Cessation Institute which covers the whole of Eastbourne and the surrounding areas representing the Institute, providing ongoing support to clients wishing to break the habit for good.
Yesterday was the past and tomorrow is your future. You can not change the past, but you can make your future.

The General Hypnotherapy Register
Hypnotherapists may become members of the General Hypnotherapy Register if they satisfy certain criteria with regard to both training and ongoing requirements as determined from time to time by the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council (GHSC).
Members are either registered at Practitioner status (which confirms that the GHR acknowledges their qualification to practice), or Affiliate status. Although Affiliate level registrants will have completed a sufficient number of training hours to equip them to commence seeing clients on a limited basis, the GHR does not acknowledge them to have yet been trained to full practitioner level.
All GHR Registered Practitioners are required to accept the published Code of Ethics and Complaints & Disciplinary Procedure.
Areas of hypnotherapy I deal with
Information about health conditions (*)
Hypnotherapy can enhance the well-being of individuals diagnosed with serious medical conditions, but should not take the place of medical treatment and advice. If you have been diagnosed with - or suspect you may have - any of these conditions, please speak to your doctor before starting hypnotherapy.

"Hi Alison, Having tried several different methods of weight loss in the past, without much success, I read about the Wakeham's Wellbeing approach and was immediately interested. After the initial consultation the Hypnotherapy sessions began and lo and behold I started to shed the lbs., OK nothing really new there but suddenly my attitude to food completely changed. Now after 6 months and less frequent sessions I am 35lbs lighter and feeling great and still focused. Alison does a great job and I thoroughly recommend her as a Hypnotherapist." Adrian Austin.
"Hi Alison, just a note to say how grateful I am to you for stopping a 30 a day, 30 year long habit of smoking. Nnot only has it extended my life, but helped to keep my relationship going. There has been the odd occasion when i've had a weak moment!! But i have put my CD on and i am back on track. Amazing." Vince
"Hi, I want to pass on my positive experience to everyone else toying with the idea of having Hypnotherapy. GO FOR IT. It has helped me to move on with my life after a very negative relationship that has dragged me down for years, and i could not see any future for myself. I've now moved on and let go of the negative passed and filled with self esteem and confidence am looking forward to a future of happiness and not dread. Hooray for Hypnotherapy." Doreen
