Are you falling off track due to stress, anxiety, insomnia, depression, fear, or any other form of mental condition? Do you find yourself going to great lengths to avoid certain situations? Do you need help picking your life from where you left off? I can help you with all of the above.
My name is Sadia and I am an accredited Clinical Solution-Focused Hypnotherapist. My sessions involve understanding the feelings and situations with which you are struggling and will be tailored to your needs. With my guidance and a solution-focused approach, you will understand yourself more and realise your capabilities to change your own life.
How can I help
As humans, we mostly don’t welcome difficult emotions and rather try to suppress them. By doing this, we damage our whole capacity to feel and endanger our liveliness, creativity, love, and joy — the very things that give meaning to our lives. My purpose is to understand your unique struggle and translate this experience into words. I can help you to embrace your feelings, and use them to create the changes you desire. I believe healing lies in you — your hopes, hardships, successes, and infinite wisdom. However, you won't walk this journey of self-discovery alone.
If overthinking and uncontrolled anxiety make you exhausted, both emotionally and physically. Through my therapeutic guidance, you will learn how to take control of your emotions and stresses and uncover your potential. You will be able to take over anxiety, be free from worries, wake up refreshed in the morning and dive into your best life every day.
During these sessions with me, you will have a safe and non-judgemental space to formulate your own solutions and to move forward with your lives using evidence-based techniques and a solution-focused approach.
Training, qualifications & experience
I trained with the prestigious Clifton Practice Hypnotherapy Training school in Manchester where I received my Diploma in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (DSFH). I have achieved NCFE Level 2 Certificate in Counselling Skills at The Trafford College. I am also a registered member of The Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (AfSFH). I have an enhanced DBS certificate for working with vulnerable adults and children. And I’m professionally insured by Holistic Services Insurance. I am committed to the highest standards of services therefore, I learn every day and update my skills regularly.
I have been helping people having different mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, phobia, self-esteem, etc. Don’t take my word for it, you can have a look at the testimonials:
"Sadia has been instrumental in helping me to understand how the brain works in relation to anxiety and depression. With her professional and friendly approach, I have significantly improved the way I process negative thinking. The audio relaxation has supported me to sleep better and instill the tools needed to call on a sense of calm if things become overwhelming. For years I have struggled with my mental health like I was missing a piece of myself and Sadia has helped me find it again. I am on the path to healing after a very traumatic and disruptive personal time, the trust that I have built up with Sadia is a testament to how skilled she is in her practices. Her enthusiasm and knowledge coupled with her positivity ensure that I get the best out of every session, and I always look forward to it". - Carol Flanagan (Oct 2020)
"I had arachnophobia- extreme or irrational fear of spiders. when I started my sessions with her I was also suffering from anxiety and insomnia. Now I can happily say that I not only won over arachnophobia but also got rid of anxiety and insomnia". Thank you so much Sadia Afrin. Hypnotherapy is completely safe and super effective. - Thnima Ahmed (Nov 2020)
"I used Sadia Afrin Hypnotherapy to help with some anxiety issues I'd been experiencing and was very glad I did. In the first sessions, she helped me identify and realise my patterns of behaviour and helped me to understand what was causing the issues. The explanations she gave me, regarding brain activity and behaviours were very insightful and something I'd never really considered before. My therapy consisted of a mix of listening to recorded hypnotherapy on a daily basis and talking through situations in our weekly sessions. This combination was a good fit for me and I could see my progress as the sessions went on. Sadia was able to create exercises for me to practice in between our sessions. These were useful alongside listening to the hypnosis audio. Throughout our sessions, I found Sadia to be very supportive and constructive and always friendly and encouraging. She's helped me a lot and given me the tools to carry on helping myself. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Sadia to friends if they needed some assistance similar to mine." - Katherine A - (Dec 2020)

Hypnotherapy can enhance the well-being of individuals diagnosed with serious medical conditions, but should not take the place of medical treatment and advice.
