About me

I am a highly qualified and experienced Clinical Hypnotherapist, practising across Surrey & West Sussex, with practices in Horley & Crawley. I also run a successful online video-link clinic, so you can be anywhere in the world.

I practise Solution Focused Hypnotherapy, helping my clients overcome stress, anxiety and confidence issues.

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy combines psychotherapy and hypnosis to help you feel more relaxed, more confident and less anxious.

Psychotherapy helps you address underlying issues. I don't dwell on your problems or painful past experiences. I focus on helping you to understand how your brain works and how to use it to change negative thought patterns.

Hypnotherapy helps you access your subconscious mind so that you become more receptive to positive suggestions. Helping you feel calmer and more relaxed.

Using Solution Focused Hypnotherapy I will help you discover new ways to approach the problems and stresses that you face. So that you can deal with them in a more positive way. The therapy will help you feel better able to cope with the strains and stresses of life.

Aside from stress, anxiety and confidence-related issues, Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can also help to treat a number of other conditions including:

•Weight loss
•Quit smoking
•Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
•Pain management
•Sports motivation

And many more.

About Me:

I am a qualified nurse and am fully trained in Psychotherapy/Hypnotherapy.

I hold a Diploma in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy from the Clifton Practice, Bristol. I also hold the Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma (HPD). The HPD is regarded as the ‘Gold Standard’ for professional hypnotherapists.

I am accredited to work young people and I am experienced in working with them. Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is an effective model to allow teenagers to overcome challenges, release negative behaviours and set real and achievable goals.

I see the amazing impact of Solution Focused Hypnotherapy in my work every day. Clients who give up smoking, clients who are able to drive again, having lost their confidence, clients who felt they couldn’t cope with their lives, but now they can. The list goes on. .

I believe that my training and experience as a nurse enables me to empathise fully with my clients, and that it gives me a unique perspective as a hypnotherapist.

Conditions Helped:

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy enables you to step back from the mental clutter and to focus on the future you want – the Solution.

Hypnotherapy allows your subconscious to come to the fore, replacing the negative thought processes that dominate your stressed, conscious brain. Your brain becomes more receptive to positive ideas. Experiencing a state of deep relaxation, you start to feel calmer and more in control.

Over a course of several treatments you learn how to manage and control your thoughts so that you can get back the life you had lost. More energy, positivity and fun!

Lose Weight, Stop Smoking, Stop Drinking

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is highly effective in helping to address weight loss and addictions like smoking and reliance on alcohol. The process I take you through helps you to visualize your life without worrying about your weight, or your life without dependence on cigarettes or alcohol.

Over a course of treatments, you learn how to manage and control your thoughts so that you no longer need those things that previously you could not live without! There is no magic or blind faith involved. You just need to be determined, and totally committed to achieving your goal. Solution Focused Hypnotherapy will do the rest.

To quit smoking I recommend just one, longer session. Follow-up sessions are available if required.

Beat Fears and Phobias, Manage Stress-Related Medical Conditions, for example IBS, Motivate Yourself for Sporting Success.

Phobias come in many forms. Fear of flying, fear of heights, fear of spiders and many, many more. A phobia is an irrational fear. Therefore, if you can bypass the conscious mind and access the subconscious your phobia can be overcome.

Similarly, where extremely high levels of motivation are required, for example to complete a marathon or to attain a top level sporting achievement, accessing the subconscious mind can have a huge impact. Ignore the negative self-talk and reasons why not that will be in the forefront of your conscious mind and focus on what you want to achieve and how you can do it!

Many medical conditions have been linked to stress, including IBS, multiple sclerosis and many others. By helping you to reduce your stress levels and become more positive and relaxed, Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can help to ease or even eliminate the symptoms of IBS, and other conditions.

What my clients say

"Wow this lady is a life saver in my eyes. 40 to 60 cigarettes a day I was smoking. With asthma. One visit and I have not had one cigarette. 14th March 2016 is a day I will always remember. Thank you Sarah x "

Michelle, Horley

''I just wanted to pass on my thanks to Sarah for the excellent work she did with me to help combat my health anxiety.
Sarah is a fabulous lady who is so easy to talk to and is excellent in her field of hypnotherapy. I didn’t really know what to expect before I started to see Sarah but I’m so glad I did. After trying other ways to combat my anxiety Sarah has managed to work with me to feel a whole lot better. I would thoroughly recommend Sarah to anybody considering hypnotherapy. Once again Sarah thank you so much.”

Nick, Horley

"After a car accident I grew more anxious about driving and this went on for about 3 years. In a very short time I have regained the confidence to drive. it’s a new lease of life - I am elated and I cannot thank Sarah enough."

Anne, Horley

"I came to see Sarah about my difficulty sleeping alone. I had experienced this for as long as I can remember. Sarah identified that my problem was anxiety-related and after 6 sessions with her I can now sleep in my home alone without a second thought. The whole process was ridiculously easy."

Helen M

Seeing Sarah has made a tremendous difference to me. I am no longer hyper-vigilant where spiders are concerned. I don't love them but I am not afraid of them. The effectiveness of the therapy has been tested several times this last week. Treatment has been liberating . I can recommend Sarah wholeheartedly.
