About me

My name is Sarah and I am a Solution-Focused Clinical Hypnotherapist with many years of experience, and have recently moved to Taunton, Somerset.  I now work mostly online, which is highly effective and preferred by many clients. However that is not set in stone and face-to-face sessions can be arranged under certain circumstances. ​

Formerly cabin crew with Laker Airways, then working in conferences as a translator and organiser, I went on to become a language teacher and school counsellor, including teaching adult literacy and children with Special Needs.  Much of my working life has been about helping people to overcome hurdles and maximise their potential.

I help my clients to visualise their own realistic goals then work towards achieving them.  My role is not to tell people what to do but rather, to help individuals  recognise and develop their own solutions and strengths.
Why a studio?  I am also an artist and published writer and I see hypnotherapy as another creative process.

Whilst I can help with a range of issues, I have developed some powerful techniques which have proved very effective so I developed them further as complete packages for clients.  These are: 'Weight Loss - A Mindset Approach' and 'Quit Smoking'.  I also present these as training events for other therapists.  

I trained at the Clifton Practice, Bristol, recognised as a Centre of Excellence for Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy, delivering one of the most up to date courses in the country. I continue to benefit from Continuous Professional Development and regular mentoring sessions.

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.
