About me

Hi, I'm Samantha, an experienced Clinical Hypnotherapist specialising in anxiety and related issues. I can work with you to overcome a wide variety of different challenges including panic attacks, over-thinking, low self-esteem, lack of confidence, low mood, stress, sleep problems, trauma, PTSD, phobias, unwanted habits and weight loss.

In addition to offering clinical hypnotherapy, I am also an advanced BWRT Practitioner and Menopause Relief Practitioner and can help you with problems related to perimenopause and menopause.

  • Do you feel emotionally overwhelmed? 
  • Do you find it hard to switch off from worrying or critical thoughts? 
  • Does life feel like a struggle? 
  • Do you feel weighed down by the past, over-burdened by present circumstances and worried about the future?

However you’re feeling right now, change IS possible. Hypnotherapy can help you to feel more confident, calm and resilient, enabling you to get your life back on track.

Here’s what one client said after a course of sessions: "I want to thank you for bringing me out of a really dark place mentally and for helping me feel so much more positive about myself and the future.  You really have helped me TREMENDOUSLY!" Kerri

The first step is a free consultation. My aim is to provide you with a comfortable, relaxed and confidential space to talk about the areas of life you’re having challenges with. I want to understand what’s going on for you, what was happening in your life when it started and how it’s affecting your life now. We’ll discuss what you want to achieve and I’ll explain how I can help. This is also your opportunity to find out a little more about me, and how I work and whether you feel I am a good fit for you too. I want you to feel confident I’m the right therapist for you.  

Whatever you’re struggling with right now, hypnotherapy will help you to feel better and take control of your life far more quickly and easily than you may think. I’ll also work with you to develop a more positive outlook, so that you can rediscover joy and fulfilment in life.  On average clients need just 6-8 sessions. Simple phobias generally need far fewer sessions, while more complex, multiple issues may take longer. Most clients start to feel calmer, more relaxed and positive about the future after the very first session. 

Hypnotherapy can address both your emotional AND physical well-being, so conditions like IBS, headaches and migraines can all be helped. I also specialise in supporting ladies with peri/ menopausal symptoms - reducing hot flushes, night sweats and associated anxiety.  There’s no need to suffer through this phase of life….hypnotherapy really can help you to get your sparkle back. 

Clients generally finish therapy feeling more resilient, confident and capable, with an enhanced overall sense of well-being. You’ll also learn a powerful set of tools empowering you to effectively manage the inevitable ups and downs of life. 

I'm also a registered advanced BWRT practitioner (Brain Working Recursive Therapy). This dynamic and innovative therapy works incredibly quickly to shift even deep-rooted problems. It can help with a wide range of issues including phobias, trauma, PTSD, anxiety, depression and binge eating.

Ready to find out more? I’d love to hear from you! I offer a free 40 minute consultation - no pressure, I promise. This session includes a free relaxation MP3.   Just click on the link above to email me for bookings, or give me a call today – 07809 447720.  Life can feel better again!

Client Feedback/Testimonials

Client Review: "It took me about 18 months to summon up the courage to contact Samantha. I had several issues -anxiety, travelling, fear of heights, sleep problems, fear of the dentist and traumas…some going back years…all going round my head at the same time and getting nowhere. What would I say to her? What would she think? All fears were unfounded as Samantha is kind, compassionate, understanding and non-judgemental. Each problem was dealt with individually and with just a few sessions with a mixture of Hypnotherapy and BWRT (which is unbelievably amazing!) I feel I am a different person with a much more positive outlook. Don’t hesitate, as I did, for so long......Take that first step now and you won’t regret it." Anne

Client Review: “Samantha has totally turned my life around. I came to her not knowing where to start as life was really difficult and I felt in an awful place. She has taught me SO much. I now have all the tools I need to carry on and live life in a far more positive way. I really don’t think I have ever felt so good. I am forever grateful.” Naomi

Client Review: “I want to say a massive thank you to Samantha for all she has done to help increase my confidence and self-esteem.  With her professionalism and tailor made sessions she has helped me to get back to doing what I love and enjoying it, and boosted my confidence in all aspects of my life. I highly recommend Samantha, not only is she wonderful at what she does but she's a lovely lady as well. Thank you for everything.” Eve

Client Review: "I couldn't believe the changes Samantha has helped me to make in my life. She has facilitated the undoing of unhealthy thought patterns which have been with me for over 20 years. Samantha is patient, caring, magnetic and creates a safe environment. Thank you!" Meg

About hypnosis

It's probably a bit different than what you expect! Did you know we all go in and out of light states of hypnosis many times each when you’re driving along a familiar route on autopilot, watching TV, absorbed in a creative activity, or even just day-dreaming. Hypnosis is not like sleep – though it’s similar to the state between sleep and full waking consciousness. You’re certainly not unconscious either! Hypnosis is simply a state of focused inner absorption.

You can expect hypnotherapy to be a learnable skill, requiring your active participation…not just a quick fix which you passively receive. It's actually something you do, with your hypnotherapist guiding you, rather than 'being done to you'.  All that’s required is your desire to change, belief that this is possible and your willingness to fully participate. Most people find hypnotherapy a very deeply relaxing, up-lifting and empowering experience that can lead to transformation in many areas of life.

I use a combination of approaches from psychotherapy, cognitive-behavioural therapy, mindfulness and NLP together with hypnosis to help you make the changes that you want. I'll also help you to develop tools and strategies for change that will be powerful and transferable skills for life.
