The practice is run by myself, Sarah Steventon. I am Clinical Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapist. I am also a counsellor and a coach, which means I am able to deal with many kinds of emotional and psychological difficulties.
My aim is to help you achieve your goals......whatever they are. Whether that is to overcome barriers to help you start enjoying life again, or to just improve and be the best version of yourself, and to help get you where you want to be in as few sessions as possible.
Clinical Hypnotherapy is a way of treating a wide range of conditions including, anxiety, stress, depression, including P.T.S.D and Post Natal Depression, panic attacks, OCD, anger issues.
I am able to offer treatment for a wide range of conditions, including phobias, and we can help you overcome a variety of problems or break harmful habits. Or perhaps you need help in your career, help in achieving your targets and ambitions. Or you may be at school or college and have the pressure of exams looming, and this is something you want help with.
My main area of interest is in Pain Management/Psychology. With the latest neuroscientific findings explaining the experience of pain, it means we now have a much deeper understanding of what is going on in the mind/body system when it comes to pain, which means we now know we sometimes also need to work from a psychological approach to make any progress.
The aim is to reduce pain and accelerate healing. This means working with clients around every aspects of their specific issue.
Dealing with the factors that also influence and effect pain including other psychological factors, such as anxiety or depression.
Often, anxiety or depression may worsen with chronic pain, but often it can also be the cause.
Your comfort and welfare will always come first.
As professionally qualified Clinical hypnotherapist and Psychotherapist I practice under a strict ethical code.
A full list of treatable conditions is listed on this website.
Training, qualifications & experience
Sarah Steventon PgDip, P.Clin.Hyp, D.Hyp, CECCH MHGI
As a Psychotherapist, I am able to use the most effective approach to make the changes you need. I can blend the most effective techniques, and then deliver these using hypnosis, which is an extremely powerful tool for making changes at the deepest level, to affect feelings and behaviours in an exceptionally fast time frame.
I am a member of The Human Givens Institute, and the Human Givens register has been accredited in the UK by The Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care (PSA). The PSA is a Department of Health backed programme, which sets standards for practitioners and is recognised by the NHS and the Care Quality Commission.
As a Psychotherapist, I use several different approaches, depending on the issue and the individual, to create a bespoke therapy plan for each client. As a fully qualified and certified Clinical Hypnotherapist, I am also able to use hypnosis, which is a daily phenomenon that we all go in and out of several times a day, however it is also an extremely powerful tool for making changes in feelings and behaviour in an exceptionally fast time frame.
I have specialist training in Hypnotherapy for fertility and have been working with couples throughout their fertility journey for many years now. I have a wealth of experience of utilising techniques that are specific to fertility to help couples improve their chances of conceiving, whether naturally or whilst going through IVF or other assisted conception procedures.
I also have specialist training in trauma. Working with organisations such as PTSD Resolution, which is a charity that offers counselling and therapy to UK armed forces' Veterans, Reservists and families to relieve mental health problems resulting from military service.

Other areas of hypnotherapy I deal with
I have specialised in Fertility for over 8 years now. Whether you’re trying to conceive naturally or whether you are going through IVF treatment, hypnotherapy is hugely benefical.
Please see my Fertility website www.sarahsteventonfertility.co.uk
Fertility Hypnotherapy has now been shown to help women who are trying to conceive and I have extensive experience in seeing how the process can create a negative thought patterns, and this in turn can cause hormonal imbalance, and it is this that can actually stop you conceiving.
Fertility Hypnotherapy can help you If you are finding it difficult to feel positive, and this might be getting in the way of you getting pregnant, I can help you to control your thoughts, and feel more relaxed. We can also explore if something is holding you back emotionally, and if it is, we can work on resolving it.
If you are planning IVF, ICSI, or IUI and you want to make sure that the process is as stress free as possible, or so that you feel you have done everything in your power to give yourself the best chance of it being successful then hypnotherapy can be the answer.
Please do get in touch, and don’t let stress be the thing that ruins this opportunity for you. If you are feeling immense pressure for it to work, this can actually end up being the reason that it doesn’t. Some support along the way, could be all you need.

Like most GPs, most Psychotherapists and Hypnotherapists are generalists, who then have chosen to specialise in certain areas or who also have several particular areas of interest
One of main focus areas is pain management - specifically how the latest neuroscientific findings explain the experience of pain, which means that we now have a much deeper understanding what is going on in the mind/body system when it comes to pain, which enables us to work from a psychological approach, accelerating healing through the bio-psycho-social model.
I work with clients who are just suffering from chronic pain, which they have had for some time, and which is impairing their quality of life.
I work closely with a Sports Therapy and Rehabilitation clinic, so often work with clients who are experiencing pain from sports injuries.
Performance Enhancement is another important area of my work and my expertise also allows us to help sports people, professional or amateur, to cope with the demands of their specialist field and perform at their highest level. I work with people to enhance thier performance whether this is with their chosen sport or in their professional or business life. Helping individuals to be at the top of their game, to achieve their personal goals, to break the barriers that are holding them back is hugely rewarding.
My other particular area of interest is in trauma, and the ongoing effect this can have on the mind and on the body. Whether this is from abuse of any kind, whether, physical, emotional or sexual. Trauma caused by accidents and attacks, previous miscarriage and birth, or any other traumatic event, could be impacting negatively on someone’s current state of mind. I can work quickly and effectively with clients to resolve these past experiences, which they may actually be unaware is potentially causing their issues or having a significant effect on their current mental and physical well-being.
I create a bespoke plan for each client using the most effective and appropriate method to meet their individual needs and goals......and I can help you achieve yours today - Sarah
