Hello and thankyou for taking the time to view my profile. I'm Sarah a Hypno Psychotherapist, life coach and trainer and I am lucky enough to love my job helping people to live a happier and more fulfilling life. Below is some information about the services I offer. If you can't find what you are looking for or have some questions, then please feel free to send me an e mail or give me a call to discuss your questions.
Is your fear or phobia preventing you from doing things you want to? Are you stuck in anxiety, panic attacks or repetitive negative thoughts and behaviours? Have you been trying to lose weight or quit smoking and feel that you are repeating the same patterns and not achieving what you want? We can get stuck in habits and behaviours that we want to change and yet can't seem to do it. No matter how much we try to solve the problem by thinking it through, we still end up with the same problem.
Hypnosis can help to reprogramme patterns of behaviour in the mind so that fears, phobias and unwanted behaviours can be overcome. During hypnosis you enter a trance state where you are still fully aware of your surroundings and in control of the situation. Your motivation to want to change the behaviour is key to the success of hypnosis.
As a qualified Hypno-psychotherapist, teacher and trainer with over 15 years experience, I am committed to supporting and empowering people in their journey through life helping them to be the best they can be and release unwanted habits and behaviours. I work from a principle and belief that everyone has the inner resources they need, or they can create them given the right conditions for change. I provide a warm and welcoming environment that is confidential and I follow a code of ethics to ensure my practice is ethical and safe. I am committed to continuing professional development and continually update my knowledge and skills to provide my clients with the service they deserve.
Psychotherapy utilises hypnosis techniques to help you overcome past difficult events or trauma, that might be impacting your ability to live happily in the present or feel positive about the future. Using counselling skills and offering a non judgemental space the Psychotherapy process can alleviate distressing feelings or thoughts from the past and help you feel back in control of your life.
Training, qualifications & experience
BSC Hons Psychology

NLP master practitioner and trainer
Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction practitioner
I have 17 years experience of providing Hypnotherapy to clients who want to change. I have successfully helped people to overcome fears such as flying and giving presentations. Phobias of spiders, crowded places, and eating. Anxiety and panic attacks can become very debilitating when you are unable to carry out every day tasks. I have helped people to feel calmer, more in control and get their life back to being the way they want it. Feeling unhappy with your body image and weight can affect self esteem and confidence. I have successfully used Hypnotherapy to improve confidence and self esteem and motivate people towards a healthier weight and more positive body image.
