I trained as a hypnotherapist after experiencing the power of Solution Focused Hypnotherapy myself. The speed of change that can be achieved in such a positive, happy and relaxed therapeutic environment was a complete eye-opener; and the combined use of the best talking therapies and well-researched strategies, with a solid grounding in neuroscience, was particularly appealing.
I am passionate about being able to help people in the same way and qualified at The Clifton Practice (the leading hypnotherapy clinic in the South West). I am a member of the Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy and the National Board of Modern Psychotherapy. I am fully insured and DBS checked (the new CRB).
I live close to Kingsbridge in the South Hams with my husband and our wonderful Labrador and am at my happiest when curled up on the sofa with a good book, working towards my current challenge to complete the South West Coast Path and spending time with good friends.

“I came to Sasha to get help with my anxiety - particularly around exams, friendships and new situations. I've come away being able to calmly face situations I would have completely avoided before with my new found confidence due to my work with Sasha.” (LP – August 2017)
“I have never been a good sleeper. Three children later and a very difficult personal tragedy left me anxious and waking at 2am and, frustratingly, not able to get back to sleep until 6am.
I have had 6 hypnotherapy sessions with Sasha and have regularly listened to her CD at home. I now fall asleep straightaway and if I wake, or am woken, in the night I can go straight back to sleep.
However, the impact of the hypnotherapy sessions has been far wider reaching. I am able to react and deal with day to day stresses in a totally different way. This has not only transformed my life but also the lives of my family.” (BR - August 2017)
“Sasha’s initial consultation was so informative and helpful in understanding how hypnotherapy works and how it could benefit me and left me excited about starting the journey. The actual treatment has been life changing. Simple as that. Within 3 sessions my sleep pattern was regulated and a gentle calmness and positivity was present throughout my day. I am able to prioritise and focus my mind much better, quicker and clearer. What a relief!
I have been blown away by the impact hypnotherapy has had on my life and in addition it is the most incredibly relaxing therapy too. I can’t recommend Sasha highly enough.” (VR - June 2017)
