About me

As a professional hypnotherapist, I use hypnosis and can combine psychotherapy, NLP and CBT into the session. 

I am also a Life Coach. We can bring elements of life coaching into the session too if you would like this.

I specialise in low self-esteem and clients who lack confidence in themselves and their abilities. I also see many clients who have anxiety, stress, phobias including fear of flying, want help to stop smoking, and help with weight management as well as other issues.

My aim is to make you feel as comfortable as possible in the session. I offer a calm and relaxing environment for us to work together.

I am friendly, approachable and empathetic and work in a way that is entirely client focussed. I am happy to answer any questions you may have. So please do not hesitate to get in touch and we can arrange a complimentary 15 minute phone consultation.

As a Life Coach I can bring coaching into the session too if you would like this.

How does Hypnotherapy Work

Hypnotherapy works by guiding you into a deeply relaxed state. When in a relaxed state of hypnosis we can begin to work on the changes you wish to make.

Hypnotherapy is safe, you are conscious and in control at all times and you can voluntarily leave the state of hypnosis at any time.

Hypnotherapy helps if you're  experiencing anxiety to bring about positive change and help boost feelings of calmness whilst reducing feelings of fear and intense worry.

If you have a low sense of self-esteem it can make it difficult to recognise your strengths. This can then hold you back in both your personal and professional life.

Hypnotherapy can be a powerful tool in helping to increase self-esteem. Working together we can look at the root cause of low self-esteem and work on changing negative thoughts about yourself to more positive and empowering thoughts.

When seeing clients who would like to lose weight I use a mind - body approach.  We work at a deep level to change thoughts, beliefs and feelings that you have about yourself that are keeping you stuck in a cycle of weight gain.

Hypnotherapy is fast becoming one of the most popular forms of help to stop smoking.

Hypnotherapy works by guiding you into a deeply, relaxed state. When this happens I will help you to change your thought patterns and behaviours associated with smoking.

I saw Andrew as he wanted to stop smoking.  This is what he had to say about his experience with me using hypnosis to stop smoking.

"I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Sharon Carley and her hypnosis service as a way to give up smoking.  When I first spoke to Sharon she was very kind and reassuring, and not in anyway pushy or self promoting.  Whilst I was a little nervous about starting the process and undertaking hypnosis, I am absolutely thrilled that I did.

I was made to feel very calm and relaxed before it began.  The session itself was extremely pleasurable and revelatory.  I don't want to give anything away about the session itself but by the end of it I knew I had begun the journey to give up smoking and felt extremely relaxed and confident that I would be able to do so.

So if you are just starting smoking, or have smoked as long as I have, I couldn't recommend strongly enough that you give Sharon a call and arrange to see her.  Enjoy the experience as there is so much more to be gained by being a non smoker. 

Thank you Sharon."

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.
