Specialising in Anxiety, Panic Attacks & Trauma

About me

Hi and welcome, I'm Samantha,

After many years of feeling highly anxious for long periods of time rooted from childhood trauma, suffering with extremely painful and undiagnosed Crohn's disease for 18 months and experiencing adversity with infertility for over ten years, I recognised how Hypnotherapy and EFT had been the turning point in my life.  It made a huge difference in the way I felt and I was empowered to make the necessary changes in my life to overcome these problems.  

I became fascinated with the power of the mind and how it had affected me so profoundly - mentally, emotionally and physically - so when my son was old enough I trained to become a Hypnotherapist and Solution Focused Psychotherapist using the Human Givens approach.  I went on to further training in Emotional Freedom Technique, Matrix Reimprinting and Matrix Birth Reimprinting to expand the skills and techniques in my "toolbox" and continue to develop my skills on a regular basis.

I now have the privilege of working with people of all ages to help them overcome their present difficulties in life, or on their fertility journey, so that they can move forward reconnected with their innate resources with skills and knowledge and with a greater sense of wellbeing.     

Supporting you

By using mind-body approaches and Hypnotherapy I can help to identify and address the mental and emotional factors and help to reduce the negative effects of stress which may be affecting your life generally or which may be affecting your fertility.

I often support those experiencing:

  • Trauma and childhood trauma
  • Generalised stress, anxiety & panic attacks
  • Fertility issues: unexplained fertility & IVF Support

How Hypnotherapy can help

  • Identifying negative and self-sabotaging subconscious beliefs
  • Help you to feel differently about your current situation
  • Help you with your mind and body connection to improve your life

I'm an empathetic practitioner, who strives to deliver professional highly skilled, ethical practice. You can be sure I will work to the best of my ability to support you in finding freedom from what's troubling you today.

“If you change the things you look at, the things you look at change”

Member organisations

CNHC

Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC)

The CNHC encompasses many types of alternative therapy, including hypnotherapy.

In order to be admitted to the register a practitioner must have studied to the National Occupational Standards for that profession/discipline, or have reached the equivalent of the National Occupational Standards through other relevant training or at least three years of experience and been assessed by their peers.

A practitioner must also have professional insurance and agree to abide by the CNHC Code of Conduct, Performance and Ethics.

GHR

The General Hypnotherapy Register (GHR)

Hypnotherapists may become members of the General Hypnotherapy Register if they satisfy certain criteria with regard to both training and ongoing requirements as determined from time to time by the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council (GHSC).

Members are either registered at Practitioner status (which confirms that the GHR acknowledges their qualification to practice), or Affiliate status. Although Affiliate level registrants will have completed a sufficient number of training hours to equip them to commence seeing clients on a limited basis, the GHR does not acknowledge them to have yet been trained to full practitioner level.

All GHR Registered Practitioners are required to accept the published Code of Ethics and Complaints & Disciplinary Procedure.

Areas of hypnotherapy I deal with

Information about health conditions (*)

Hypnotherapy can enhance the well-being of individuals diagnosed with serious medical conditions, but should not take the place of medical treatment and advice. If you have been diagnosed with - or suspect you may have - any of these conditions, please speak to your doctor before starting hypnotherapy.

Other areas of hypnotherapy I deal with

I can help with a wide range of issues. Due to my own experience of the problems I experienced in the past trying to conceive I have a special interest in helping those who are trying to have a baby. It took me ten years to finally become pregnant and I wonder how many years I could have saved myself if I had known the impact of the mind on fertility.

General Hypnotherapy

Are you feeling stuck and can't seem to find a way to break free? Do you want to take steps to change your life for a better future but you don't know how? I help people just like you to become "unstuck" and find solutions so you can facilitate long lasting change in your life and go towards a better future. Maybe it's helping you to gain freedom from stress, anxiety or panic attacks or perhaps you need help to improve your relationships, resolve a phobia or help improve your chances of conception. Whatever the issue, identifying and changing subconscious patterns of behaviour which are no longer serving you for something more helpful in your life is a game changer.

Further information

How long will the appointment last?

I allow 90 minutes per session.

What will happen during the session?

The session is informal. We'll chat about what your intention and goals are, take a brief history and a general gathering of information about your resources and then facilitate the changes you want.

How many sessions will I need?

For some issues such as a one-off phobia or specific event, it may only take one session. For most issues, such as long-term high anxiety states for example, it may take several sessions and so I usually recommend working in blocks of four sessions. Many of my clients’ remark they notice a difference in how they feel from the very first session.

For multiple sessions, appointments may initially begin as weekly and may soon develop into sessions with longer intervals between appointments as you develop the skills and understanding to manage your own issues.
