About me

I have over 6 years experience as a therapist and during this time I have had the pleasure of working with the most amazing people, assisting them in their hypnotherapy journeys. Helping people has always been a passion of mine, whether it be helping a client break a bad habit or an addiction or even tackle more serious conditions such as anxiety or depression.

What is Hypnotherapy?
Hypnosis is a deep state of relaxation and is a natural and effective technique used for accessing the subconscious mind, the key to unleashing your potential, changing your unwanted habits and behaviours and finding solutions to your problems and concerns. The subconscious mind is the source of many of our problems and self-images. Our beliefs, habits and behaviours are stored as information.

Hypnotherapy helps by getting in touch with your unconscious mind. Our unconscious mind knows everything about us and forgets nothing. Hypnotherapy can be used in almost everything and I truly believe that everybody would benefit from such a powerful technique.

Hypnotherapy is about changing your belief system and this comes from deep within you. It will only happen if you want it to happen. I cannot make you do anything that you do not want to do. For example, I cannot help you quit smoking if it’s not truly you that wants to quit, it maybe that you have somebody in your life that wants this for you.

I will have a quick 5 minute consultation with you on the phone just so you can make sure hypnotherapy is for you and also to make sure that I am the right hypnotherapist for you. We will have a talk about your condition so I can gather some background information and if you want to go ahead we will make an appointment.

The first session can sometimes last up to 1.5 hours and then from there on each session will last an hour. I like to treat my clients holistically so my aim is to help you to become content in all aspects of your life. For the first part of the session we will have a talk so I can understand your needs, this also gives you the chance to ask me any questions. I will then proceed with the hypnosis. At the end of the session we will discuss steps for you to start taking to get you on the right path.

How many sessions will you need?
The amount of sessions completely depends on the condition and you as a person. We will discuss this together at the end of your first session.

Children’s Hypnotherapy
Children’s mental health is just as important as adult’s mental health. Children sometimes get anxious, feel down, lack confidence and struggle with everyday life…. Just like us adults. The sessions are not intense and are very child friendly. I would use a lot of guided imagery and confidence boosters and the children love it. It’s different for them.

Further information

"Just got back from Florida! Came to Sal with severe flying phobia. Usually i need Diazepam but this year there was absolutley no need. Dissapointed i didnt try this earlier."

"I left Sally every week feeling completely on track. Never realised how much just talking can help with weight problems. 4 stone down! 2 more to go on my own and I really do not feel starved"

"I have never felt so relaxed. Drastically improved my anxiety"

"The hypnotherapy session with Sally has left me with a sense of bliss for days... Her voice is like a voice of an Angel. She guided me to the most relaxed place in my mind that was so personal to me .. Sally is an extraordinary therapist, whether you want to work on deep rooted issues or just experience a level of relaxation that impossible to describe (so good !)."

“I approached Sally with an embarrassing anger issue. My problem was that I often over reacted to specific casual mildly insulting statements. This was starting to impact on my work and home life so needed sorting …fast. Sally was very professional and explained clinical hypnosis was nothing like the stage acts I had seen and soon put me at ease. I left the first hypnotherapy session a different person and 2 more sessions later it’s turned my life around. Sally is friendly professional and effective”

“I came to Sally for smoking cessation and was worried it wouldn’t work. I haven’t had a cigarette in 46 days and I don’t even have the craving. Sally was so understanding and gave me some really good advice that I have put into action. All I can say is onwards and upwards. I’m still amazed at the results of hypnotherapy and would 100% recommend it to anybody especially with Sally”

"I approached Sally for some hypnotherapy around my childhood issues and weight loss. Sally soon realised that both my issues were connected around my childhood. She was professional and warm throughout our sessions and gave me tips and strategies to help myself. I would recommend Sally very highly"

"My hypnotherapy sessions with Sally were very effective - she has a wonderful calm approach, full of empathy and wisdom. Thank you Sally."

"  I did a virtual gastric band with Sally and the results are just fabulous. I have changed my eating for the long term and I wouldn't class it as being on a diet. I get full so quick now which is brill considering the amount I would usually eat. Sally encouraged me to buy a new item of clothing as motivation so I got a dress for my Christmas ball this year which is now too big 8 weeks later. Not only have I changed my eating habits I have lot more than the amount I planned. I have gone from a size 14 to a 10-12 depending on where I shop. Don’t get me wrong there were times where I really just wanted to pig out but sally gave me tips on how to deal with my cravings which worked really well. I would recommend hypnotherapy to anyone going off my experience and have already recommended 3 friends to sally and again they have all already made massive changes. I really cant thank you enough! Thank you thank you THANK YOU! xx"

“I went through a really bad break up and it was seriously affecting my life. Sally gave me the kick I needed and put a lot into perspective for me. Sally has given me my confidence back which I lost a few months back. Sally was really sympathetic and got me to open up about things I have never really discussed. It was nice to just get it out of my system and feel like I had a friend to talk to. I am back to my old self now and I have just started dating again. Thanks Sal for just giving that confidence boost and being there for me.”
