About me

Hello, my name is Sarah

I am a qualified Clinical Hypnotherapist

I have worked in the NHS for thirty years as a Registered Nurse with the NMC and up to date revalidation.

I am approachable, good listener and non-judgemental. I have worked in different sectors of healthcare ranging from maternity, community, elderly care.

I understand it can be difficult to take the first steps to changing something in your life but once you have the feeling is as though a weight has been lifted off your shoulders.

I currently work at the Royal London Hospital for Integrated Medicine as a Clinical Nurse Specialist in Clinical Hypnotherapy with a special interest in Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Chronic Pain, Anxiety Based Disorders.

Functional abdominal pain (FAP) and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) are characterised by chronic or recurrent abdominal pain without evidence of any underlying organic disorder.

The term "functional" is often applied to disorders where the body's normal activities in terms of the movement of the intestines, the sensitivity of the nerves of the intestines, or the way in which the brain controls some of these functions is impaired, causing bloating, constipation, diarrhoea to name just a few. These symptoms can be very difficult to manage and can cause anxiety, stress, time off work, social events.

Unfortunately, there are no structural abnormalities that can be seen by endoscopy, x-ray, or blood tests. It is usually identified by the characteristics of the symptoms and infrequently, when needed, limited tests.

I have also completed a course at the RLHIM for Cognitive Behaviour Therapy for Insomnia helping clients by showing some Behavioural and Cognitive interventions for insomnia.

If you feel I could help you I offer a 25-minute free consultation with no obligation to continue.
