Sarah Eley, DipHPsych CertSM CertNLP HPD MNCH (Reg)
At the end of your tether? Tried everything but making no headway with change? Whether it’s weight loss, quitting smoking, addictive habits, stress or something else where your mind is playing havoc with your life, change really is possible. As your local trained professional hypnotherapist, I will work with you to find strategies to stop the cycle of damage and help you free yourself.
I help people in Harrogate and the surrounding areas with a variety of challenges including:
- anxiety and stress
- weight management
- stopping smoking
- digestive and skin problems
- fears and phobias
- performance improvement
...and all manner of other mind-body issues
These are examples, so if your issue isn’t listed, just ask.
By taking you to a place of deep relaxation we can help quieten your restless conscious mind so that the subconscious can listen and respond to positive suggestions and even recreate the feeling of your ideal you. I treat a wide variety of clients using Brief Focused Solutions which means we don’t dwell on the past, but move forward positively into a calmer brighter future.
Hypnotherapy can be used to treat all conditions where physical responses are linked to the mind. For example – depression, stress and anxiety, panic and phobia, addictions, skin and digestive conditions, chronic pain and issues such as help to quit smoking and assistance with weight loss. Hypnotherapy can also be used to improve existing skills for performers of all kinds.
Hypnotherapy helps clients to access their subconscious through deep relaxation. This is achieved by understanding how the individual processes information and developing a hypnotherapy treatment plan which help the client to relax in a way that’s individual to them. Having overcome resistance by the conscious mind, we offer the subconscious positive suggestions which affect the clients’ behaviour after the hypnosis session has ended.
Appointments are available through the week including some evening and weekend consultations. Home visits are available at an additional cost to cover travel.
"I would recommend Sarah at Flourish Hypnotherapy as she is warm and friendly and apart from the fantastic visualisations during relaxation Sarah is able to help you see and make a positive approach to any situation. With regular use of the CD and taking the time to relax each day it has helped to calm my anxiety and given me the ability and tools to deal with any anxious situation that can arise at any time." LC, Thirsk
“I have found Sarah’s down-to-earth, humorous and friendly approach the opposite of many therapies on offer, and much more effective in terms of reducing stress and sorting out my (manic) lifestyle priorities!” Verity Walker, Author
