About me

Hi, I’m Sarah and I help adults and young people who want to reduce anxiety, move on from past events and create new, positive habits so they can cope better, being the best they can be every day.

"By using a positive & modern approach to hypnotherapy, I help you to regain control of your thoughts and feelings so you can move forward and live life to your fullest potential.

Sessions are positive and up-lifting. As well as feeling the benefits of working with me, you will also gain an understanding of how our brains process our experiences in life and learn practical skills that will serve you for decades, helping you to feel extra confident, knowing that you are capable and coping well with all that life sends your way."

For a FREE  25 minute discovery call  get in touch today.

You can choose in person sessions at my welcoming therapy space located in the beautiful village of Edwinstowe, Mansfield, Nottinghamshire or online sessions via Zoom meaning you can access support from the comfort of you own space, with no need to travel long distances to be able to work with me.

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.

Private Health Cash Plan - Lots of health insurance providers will now cover full or part costs for hypnotherapy services, so it’s worthwhile checking with any providers you may have.  I’ve listed below some private health cash plan providers that at the time of writing recognise hypnotherapy with CNHC registered practitioners such as myself, as eligible for reimbursement. You will need to check with your provider yourself to establish the level of reimbursement you will receive for hypnotherapy. If you wish to claim reimbursement for a plan you are covered by, let me know and I can provide receipts showing payments you have made for sessions.

Client Testimonial by Rachel (Mansfield, Notts) 

I contacted Sarah as I was having difficulty with my anxiety which was effecting my daily life. From each session I have had with Sarah my anxiety has effected me less and less to the point where I don't notice I have it anymore. At every session Sarah has had a kind, caring and professional attitude. The environment itself gives a sense of calm and safety.


Client Testimonial by Sherryl, (Mansfield, Notts)

Can't praise Sarah enough. After completing my sessions I feel like a different person. She is one of the nicest people you will ever meet, very friendly patient and professional. 


Client Testimonial by Craig N (Mansfield, Notts)

Sarah has been fantastic for me, like a lot of people I was slightly sceptical as to whether this kind of treatment was effective but it has improved my life immeasurably and I can’t thank you enough!


Client Testimonial by Iain M (West Midlands) 

I have had an amazing journey with Sarah. The uplift in my life after our sessions has been nothing short of remarkable. this is something YOU need to do :)


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.
