Emma Wright, BSc (Hons), PG Cert (Clin Hyp)
My journey has been a body-mind one, and teaching my body and mind to relax and be calm has been key to achieving my goals. It is my strong belief that helping people connect with their mind and body, by managing physical and emotional challenges, and promoting relaxation, has the greatest potential for happiness and fulfillment. For me, it's felt like I've been climbing one mountain after another, and now I'm on a downhill slope. I'm no longer in physical pain and I'm increasingly enjoying life to the full, finding I can relax more and make my mind so like still water...
Who can I help?
I work with adults and teenagers across a whole range of issues, including:
- Fear of flying
- Panic attacks
- Weight loss
- Pain management
- IBS and other digestive system complaints
I also teach self-hypnosis, which will empower you to maintain what we achieve in our sessions as well as reaching your long-term goals.
Where appropriate, I use other complementary therapies alongside hypnosis. These include Hypno-reflexology (where I use hypnotherapy alongside reflexology to deepen relaxation, helping with sleep and relieving stress); sports massage; hot stone massage and Japanese shiatsu.

Other areas of hypnotherapy I deal with
Is anxiety or fear stopping you from living your life to the fullest? If you suffer from anxiety, panic attacks or unnecessary fear, I can help teach you relaxation techniques and build up your very own 'anxiety toolkit' to dip in and out of whenever you feel anxious or new challenges come along.
Weight loss & sugar cravings
In hypnosis, I help you to re-associate with the healthy neural pathways in your brain – an alternative to reaching out excessively for sugary food might be to choose a healthier food option 80% of the time and less healthy options 20% of the time.
Other services I offer include:
- Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
Habits are conditioned and reinforced every time a behaviour is repeated. The aim is to replace the old conditioned response with healthier behaviour, opening up to new possibilities which are consistent with your goal, including changing mindset from the negative to the positive.
When we become over-anxious, mindfulness helps to reduce the chaos in our minds. Mindfulness is achieved by focusing awareness on the present moment, accepting and embracing thoughts, feelings and sensations regarding a current challenge. The breath is used as an anchor for relaxation.
I use relaxation techniques including progressive muscle relaxation and the relaxation response, to calm the mind and reduce the body's stress response, to slow breathing and heart rate and relax every muscle throughout the body.

“Emma, I have fantastic news. My son had a great car journey down through France and Spain, with not one panic attack. In fact, I don't believe he has had a panic attack since finishing his last session with you. The tools you have given him to cope work brilliantly and he is so much happier. Over the summer my son worked on a building site doing all sorts of jobs, even ending up supervising men three times his age! It has helped his confidence no end and that, coupled with your amazing therapy, has enabled him to be such a much better person in himself.
I can't thank you enough.
You have literally changed a young person's life and given him courage and belief in himself.”
Mrs F (Epsom)
“I recently visited Emma for hypnotherapy with my daughter who has been struggling with extreme anxiety before exams. Emma allowed me to be present in the session which was reassuring for my child and helped me to understand her methods and practice. After extremely useful breathing exercises she began the guided story, which was completely tailored to my daughter’s young age. Using metaphors and examples that my daughter would understand and recognise made the experience comforting and accessible. Since the visit my daughter has used the techniques to great effect and has played the recording Emma made of the session before an important and usually stressful day. I am very pleased to say it has really helped to change her mindset and we will continue to use Emma's techniques".
(H Underwood, Ashtead)
"Thank you for saving my life. That may sound dramatic, but it is the absolute truth. Six months ago, I was climbing the walls with frustration at how my life was collapsing around me due to chronic insomnia. My doctor would not prescribe sleeping tablets and so I was desperate to overcome a life-changing condition. So I tried yoga, stopped eating and drinking after 6pm, gave up alcohol but, most importantly, made an appointment with you for hypnotherapy. And I am sure it was the hypnotherapy and reflexology that have released me from the depression and terrible anxiety I was going through. You know, Emma, even typing this now, I find it hard to remember just how ill and suicidal I was, but I only have to read my diary. I cannot tell you how wonderful it is to have my life back and to be able to go to bed at night without being terrified of having another night without sleep. Since starting hypnotherapy with you, I have been sleeping like a baby. Thank you so much.”
(S Hartley, Ashtead)
Fear of Flying:
"I was very afraid of flying for over 20 years, and normally taking serious medication to combat this. It was very interesting to know that Emma does hypnotherapy. My last flight to the USA which was recent, made me nervous. I was only able to book two appointments before I went. Emma was positive, calm and reassuring, and after both sessions I definitely had a better attitude towards my impending departure. Emma also gave me lots of helpful hints and tricks for before and during the flight. I can now happily report that following hypnotherapy, I didn't feel at all anxious during my flights. My medication didn't leave my bag. I thank you Emma. I would highly recommend hypnotherapy with you." (HG, Ashtead)
“I have just completed a course of hypnotherapy for anxiety with Emma and it was an enlightening experience. I was not entirely convinced beforehand that hypnotherapy would help, but under her very professional, calm and kind guidance I have found a wonderful new set of tools which allow me to feel much more able to control my anxiety. It was an extremely positive and relaxing experience and has given me so much more confidence knowing I can use what I have learned whenever I need to. I cannot recommend and thank Emma enough!”
(J Samuel, Reigate)
Comfort Eating, sleep problems, performance anxiety and addiction to social media:
“I went to see Emma Wright for hypnotherapy to help with ‘comfort eating’. I found the sessions so beneficial that I decided to try a few other areas of my life that I felt I needed more control over: social media, not getting enough sleep and professional performance anxiety.
Each session commenced with an honest discussion about how these issues were affecting my life and how they made me feel. Emma was able to distil the essence of the problem and focus on those issues in each session, to reinforce a positive message each time. She made a recording on my phone, so that I could listen to the sessions whenever I needed to – which was helpful and convenient. The repetition of the message really helps to keep only the ‘good thoughts’ at the forefront of my mind. I have lost weight, I have deactivated my Social Media account and I am feeling a lot less ‘outraged’ and more relaxed with life. I feel free and in control – thank you Emma!”
(Mrs A, Epsom)
