Norton Wellbeing - Sabrina Norton, MHS
Thwaite St Mary
Hello, I’m Sabrina and I provide private and confidential hypnotherapy and counselling in a tranquil location just 13 miles south of Norwich close to the Norfolk/Suffolk border. As well as working in private practice, I currently volunteer at MIND Norwich.
"Nearly two years and still not smoking. I tried so many times to quit before but you gave that special something that I needed to finally kick the habit. Thank you."

Life can be full of ups and downs, and all too often there is little or no opportunity to take time for yourself to work through these changes and adapt…leading to problems becoming bigger and more consuming. There may be times when you are suddenly faced with your own vulnerabilities and mortality with no one who you can confide in.
As an integrative hypnotherapist and counsellor I can offer you the time to talk about what worries you, or what feels too much to deal with alone. Hypnotherapy can be an extremely helpful tool which offers a safe and effective approach when used to overcome a variety of presenting issues such as:
- stress management
- smoking cessation
- and weight loss, to name but a few.
I work with adults and young people on an open-ended basis with the aim of promoting positive growth, enabling you to enhance your life and to live it more fully. I will work at a pace that suits you and provide a place where you can share what is troubling you; or we can discover together what those things are. Life is both messy and painful for everyone at times, and perhaps family or friends are just not the ones we can talk these things through with, so counselling can provide an alternative, in a safe and welcoming environment.
"I was both sceptical and nervous about using hypnotherapy to help with weight-loss. Sabrina’s calm, gentle manner soon put me at ease and now 3 stone lighter I wonder why I ever had any doubts. I feel more confident, fitter, healthier and happier – thank you Sabrina."

What Hypnotherapy can do for you:
Hypnotherapy is a well-researched and safe form of psychotherapy that utilises the power of positive suggestion to bring about subconscious change to our thoughts, feelings and behaviour. It isn’t something that is done to you like the media so often depicts, but it is something that you do yourself - I simply facilitate it.
In a nutshell, Hypnotherapy helps you to:
- Maximise your potential
- Change limiting beliefs and behaviours
- Gain insight and wisdom.
Hypnotherapy is an induced state of deep relaxation during which the subconscious part of our brain is engaged and alert, and becomes receptive to positive suggestion and change. It is the subconscious mind that controls our behaviours and feelings which it learns through our past experiences and an ingrained belief system. The subconscious is extremely powerful and can influence and control our more rational conscious mind which can then make us behave in ways which are often unwanted.
Hypnotherapy is an extremely effective way of breaking bad and unwanted habits and thought patterns and replacing these with more positive alternatives. The uses and rewards of hypnotherapy are endless and often incredibly rapid, and I am happy to answer any questions you may have about your own personal needs and goals.
I offer a free, no obligation, initial consultation for you to see if Hypnotherapy is right for you - please call me on 07817 936347 or click here to email me.
Here's what some of my past clients have said:
"Sabrina was professional, kind, relaxing and most importantly a miracle worker in my eyes! I have bitten my nails since I was a young child, and with Sabrina’s expert help and guidance I am now bite free and very, very pleased with the outcome."

"Lost my job in December 2016 at the age of 56 and my self-esteem was at an all time low. Sabrina has helped me regain my confidence and I'm better equipped to tackle the workplace once more."

Frequently Asked Questions
- Can anyone be hypnotised?
Hypnosis has the capacity to work for the majority of individuals but some are more susceptible to suggestions than others. The most important thing to remember is that you must be fully committed to the process and your goal and it's important to keep an open mind.
- Is it possible to get “stuck” in a hypnotic state?
No, just like it is not possible to get stuck in sleep this will not happen. I will gently bring you back to full awareness at the end of the session.
- Am I in control during a hypnotherapy session?
A common concern people have about hypnotherapy is that they are going to be under some kind of hypnotic ‘spell’ and made to do all kinds of strange and random things. This isn’t the case as you will always be in full control during the hypnotherapy session. As a therapist, I cannot force you to do or say anything that you don’t want to. I am simply here to help you achieve the change that you’ve come see me about. When you are in hypnosis you know who and where you are, but you are also strongly focused on what’s happening inside. You still have your own free will and choice at all times.
- How many sessions of hypnotherapy will I need?
It depends upon what you want to change as to how long it will take. As a guide, two to six sessions are required to resolve most problems, however, some take less. For example, smoking cessation is often achieved in just one session.
- Is it confidential?
Everything you communicate to me is treated in the strictest confidence. I am fully committed to and abide by the National Counselling Society’s Ethical Framework.
I will never break confidence unless I have concerns about your safety, or the safety of other people.
All ethical therapists discuss their clients with a supervisor as a professional requirement. Supervision is designed to protect your interests and to assist me in my professional development. Your full name will not be given to my supervisor.
- What can I expect in my first session and how many will I need?
All clients are invited to come for a free, no obligation initial consultation at my practice within a tranquil and relaxing setting. During this session you will have the opportunity to meet with me, ask any questions you may have about hypnotherapy, discuss your particular needs and goals and ascertain whether hypnotherapy is right for you. To arrange your free consultation please call me on 07817 936347 or click here to email me.
Appointments available 6 days a week including evenings.
