About me

I'm ready to help you find the freedom to live joyfully! Do you have a habit that not only annoys you, it annoys others too? Maybe you have a fear that prevents you from enjoying life to the full? Are you suffering from panic attacks, poor sleep and an overthinking mind? I'm a registered hypnotherapist and certified life coach. My packages combine the two, along with some mindfulness, so you can tackle your problems both subconsciously and consciously!

I offer a free 15-30 minute consultation via phone or Zoom so I can check that my packages are appropriate for your needs and you can learn more about me before you book: https://calendly.com/sarahm_fish/15min_discovery_call

If you decide to go ahead, I'll email out the consultation form, payment information and a link to book your sessions via Calendly, at times to suit you.

I'm fully insured and follow strict codes of ethics laid down by both the General Hypnotherapy Register and The Coaching Academy.

For 5 star testimonials, see my website or Google. There are also a few testimonials below under each package.

I can help with a wide range of problems, but my specialities are habits, phobias and anxiety. For more information on my packages, read on....

Habits

Do you have a habit that not only annoys you, it annoys others too? Or maybe you know your habit is bad for your health? I bet you've tried to stop on your own? How long did it last?

From the very first session, you experience the calming effect of Hypnotherapy.  Over 4 weeks together, we tackle the issues surrounding your habit and adjustments you can make to overcome your habit on a conscious level too. Taking it at your own speed. You leave with the knowledge you can take control to end your habit and feel the freedom that goes with it.

‘Sarah explained what to expect throughout, was 100% present with me and I felt that she totally understood my situation and habit I no longer wanted. I was amazed at how I felt after the very first session – I felt full of energy and enthusiastic to embrace the next sessions. My habit is no longer controlling me!‘   – Amy

Phobias

Do you have a fear that prevents you from enjoying life to the full? Are there events you avoid or certain subjects you don't even want to discuss because of your fear?

From the very first session, you experience the calming effect of Hypnotherapy.  Over 4 weeks together, we tackle the issues surrounding your phobia, pinpoint the trigger and reframe how you feel about it – so it no longer impacts your life in the same way. You leave with the knowledge you can take control of your fear and feel the freedom that goes with it.

‘I had put off addressing my fear of the dark as I found it comforting to hold on to it, but I began to recognise how debilitating it was especially as an adult. The hypnotherapy was fabulous, and I turned the bedroom light off after the first session which was just amazing.  The impact of having done it has been really amazing and freeing for me, being able to sit in the dark and be open in a way I never have before.’   – Rachel 

Anxiety

Do you feel stressed and anxious about the future? Are you suffering from panic attacks, poor sleep and an overthinking mind? Do you want to reduce that anxiety, sleep better and allow your creativity to flow again?

From the very first session you experience what it’s like to feel calm. Listening to the audio you take away gives you the practice you need to reduce your anxiety. Over 8 weeks together, we tackle your anxiety symptoms and discuss tips you can use to take control.  We dive deep into the reasons behind your anxiety, giving you tools to stop it taking over your life. Hypnotherapy for anxiety helps you unwind, release negativity and boost self-love.

‘I am a 61 year old male who has struggled with Anxiety and Panic attacks for most of my adult life on and off.
Recently due to family trauma and work problems during lockdown my anxiety became much worse.
I booked sessions with Sarah and I can say that my level of anxiety has reduced considerably now.’   – Gary 

Life Balance

Do you feel like you're constantly running around chasing your tail? Is life going so fast that you can't enjoy it any more? Are you always putting everyone else first and feel the need to escape?

The life balance package is a combination of hypnotherapy and life coaching and takes place over 8 weeks. In that time we focus on helping you reconnect with yourself again, after putting everything and everyone else first for so long. Giving you tools to put yourself first and helping you de-stress.

‘I had got in a vicious cycle of believing I had no time to myself, but wasting the time I did have. I was staying up late just to get time alone, and was often tired and grouchy. Working with Sarah has improved my sleep and I have gained some calm at home. I have rediscovered what is important to me, and I have begun to do what I enjoy when I can.’   – Nicola

Training, qualifications & experience

I achieved my Hypnotherapist Diploma with Jo Howarth (Advanced Hypnotherapist) who owns and runs the Happiness Club School of Hypnotherapy.  Jo was trained by the Atkinson-Ball College of Hypnotherapy and Hypno-Healing.

I'm a certified life coach with The Coaching Academy.

I completed my Master's degree in Biomedical Science in 2013 and spent 15 years working as a Biomedical Scientist, so I also have knowledge about a variety of ailments and understand the science behind disease. This helps me understand your needs better, but I am not qualified to provide any kind of diagnosis. Please always continue to see your GP about your health.

I have experience in anxiety, phobias, habits, sports performance and pain. I'm trained to help with so much more though!
