Clients working with me often comment that I am welcoming and friendly, Helen mentions this in her testimonial:
"Sarah Woodward Hypnotherapy worked so well for me.
Her kindness and compassion shone throughout. Sarah is highly professional but with empathy; that's a rare trait in my opinion.
She gave realistic exercises for me to complete in between sessions and made me feel truly positive for the first time in my life.
I felt listened to, cared about and nothing felt insurmountable; and these were key issues that have plagued me and had a detrimental affect for many years.
I wish I could rate her higher than 5*; she was amazing and I'd highly recommend her to anyone out there looking for a more positive outlook and change of approach on events that would usually halt you."

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.

Client Testimonial by Sara B (Mansfield, Notts)
Sarah's sessions were invaluable to me. I can't imagine where I would be without the help she has given me. Highly recommend her to anyone in need of support.
Client Testimonial by LJ H (Newark, Notts)
Having had big issues with not getting much sleep for years now, Sarah was recommended to me to see if she would be able to help. I am so glad that I found Sarah, she is amazing and has helped me in so many ways. Not only with sleep but also with my personal life and in the workplace. It has made me feel so more positive and calmer. I thoroughly recommend having therapy with Sarah, she makes you feel so at ease and I will always be so grateful for her help.
Client Testimonial by Colleen H (Hampshire)
Having never looked into hypnotherapy before it was suggested to me to try to help with feelings of limiting beliefs and trauma. Sarah at once put me at ease with her relaxed and calming disposition. She guided me through many practices which I thoroughly enjoyed and found relaxing and insightful. I cannot believe how useful the skills I've learned from Sarah are and will be for the future for helping me deal with problems. I was made to feel in control the whole time throughout the various exercises and have taken on board so many parts of Sarah's teaching and techniques. Thank you so much.
