About me

Clinical Hypnotherapist and Life Coach offering sessions in person at my therapy room in central Edinburgh, or online.

Hi, I'm Sara and I am passionate about helping people overcoming their current difficulties, in order to help them live a life they deserve. No-one wants to have problems in their life or to have to see a therapist, but sometimes in life we need that extra little bit of help to get us back on track, and this can make all the difference!

I offer my clients help with many different concerns from anxiety and stress, weight loss, smoking cessation, fears and phobias, and IBS to name but a few.

I love helping people rediscover themselves, regain their confidence, and be able to walk away from the issues they once had!

I offer a free, no-obligation consultation to all new clients, to see how I can help you and how we can work together.

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.

When I work

Mon Tue Wed Thu Fri Sat Sun

I am flexible, and will try to fit in with your schedule.

In person are held at my private therapy room in central Edinburgh, or occasionally at the clients home, as well as online via zoom.

Further information

After an initial telephone conversation, during the first session with a client we discuss their situation in slightly more depth to gain a deeper understanding of the issues that they are facing, and in order for us to build up a rapport and some trust before hypnotherapy commences.

From there, I often focus firstly on deeper breathing in order to help the client relax further, and I then guide them through a muscle relaxation process and into hypnosis.

Each session is unique, and uses only my words, the sound of my voice, and visualisation in order to achieve the desired results. Clients can talk to me during a session, and I do often ask them to describe what is coming up for them.

I also use a variety of other techniques to support a hypnotherapy session such as EFT and EMDR which can help the client when they have specific problems.

As a Reiki healer, I can also offer clients this option should they like to try it, as a combination of Reiki with Hypnotherapy and Life Coaching can be very successful.
