About me

Are you struggling with worries and anxious thoughts? Are your fears about the future getting in the way of you enjoying life and the things you normally enjoy? Do you want to feel calmer, more confident and in control?

I have the solution for you

I help my clients let go of anxiety, stress and over-thinking and enable them to enjoy a calmer, happier life. Here's what one of my clients wrote about me after seeing me for anxiety and panic attacks:

"To say that Sally has given me my life back seems like an over the top statement but that is exactly what she has done. I can’t thank her enough for how she has helped me go from an anxiety ridden 59 year old to someone who can see how good his life his and how the past has made him what he is today and the future exciting. Thank you Sally”– Paul Shackleton

I offer all prospective clients a free, 45 minute initial consultation in my therapy room in Central Manchester. This is a completely pressure-free opportunity for us to meet each other, for me to find out more about what you're struggling with and for you to ask me any questions.

I work with clients in a relaxed, highly confidential setting to help them let go of their worries and anxieties permanently. We work with your unconscious; the deeper part of you that governs our automatic fears and habits and show it how to support you ways that let's you get on with living your life the way you want to.

A highly personalised, supportive experience

I provide bespoke treatment plans for every client as I recognise that everyone experiences their problem differently. I also provide support in between sessions, including additional resources and learning so you can feel completely supported as we work in partnership to get you feeling calmer, more confident and in control.

"My cognitive hypnotherapy sessions with Sally have changed my life. I’ve dealt with anxiety for some time and when somebody recommended hypnotherapy to me I initially had my reservations. However from the first time I met Sally I felt at ease with her. Over the course of the last three months Sally has given me a safe space to express my anxious feelings. During our sessions she has introduced me to countless techniques to combat my anxiety and limiting beliefs, talking me through them and helping me to implement them in my everyday life". - Lauren Woods, for anxiety

Training and Qualifications

Cognitive hypnotherapy is the only model of hypnotherapy that is supported by an evidence base for anxiety and depression. It incorporates a number of highly effective therapeutic tools such as NLP, EFT, EMI, Gestalt and positive psychology.

About me

In my previous career as a solicitor, I found myself wishing I had some practical tools to deal with stress and anxiety. I often doubted myself and my abilities. Over the years I noticed how disempowered I felt when fear was getting in the way of my ability to rationalise, think clearly or live life fully.

I knew I wanted to acquire practical tools to help myself and those around me, which led me to the Quest Institute in London, where I trained in Cognitive Hypnotherapy. I was amazed by the power and effectiveness of the techniques I learned during my training. I left my legal career to set up my successful cognitive hypnotherapy practice in central Manchester. I particularly enjoy helping busy professionals to overcome anxiety and stress.
