About me

Hello, I’m Sharon and passionate about caring for your mind body & soul. My mission as a fully qualified Solution Focused Hypnotherapist & Psychotherapist, is to work with you to get you feeling great again and back in control.  I specialise in working with clients experiencing panic, anxiety, stress, PTSD, OCD, depression and food related issues including weight loss as well as....

  • physical symptoms like hair pulling,
  • phobias,
  • dependency
  • IBS,
  • insomnia, hair pulling & other physical habits
  • pregnancy & calm birthing
  • building self-esteem and confidence

I see people online as well as face to face in clinic near Greengates, in the Bradford area. I would see you for 50-60 minutes each week at a time agreed and the amount of sessions depends on the condition, but we can discuss that when we make contact.

This style of therapy doesn't delve into painful past issues, instead it encourages you to move forward in life, what ever that means for you, and if your not sure where you want to be, we can work that out too.  The sessions as non judgemental and relaxed and contain lots of information to help you on your journey.  The first half of the session is talking and the second half is hypnosis - which is nothing to be afraid of, its something you do everyday without realising it, and is a wonderfully relaxed feeling. Together, we can work to improve how you feel and take control back. Take a look on my website for testimonials. I am enhanced DBS checked and fully insured. You can call me, message me on facebook or there is a contact form on my website.

I sought out B&A because I needed further support in recovering from a long-standing eating disorder. I hoped that the combination of techniques used by Sharon would lead to real change where other therapies had failed. I was not wrong. The combination of hypnotherapy and solution-focused, present-based but past-sensitive strategies has improved my quality of life and the way I treat myself. I've given these stars whole-heartedly because the last year of my life has been revelatory and a huge relief.

One Of The Best Decisions I Have Ever Made
I was originally recommended Believe and Achieve through a friend, and can honestly say, seeing Sharon is one of the best decisions I have ever made. I was unsure what to expect when I initially visited, but in each meeting, it was clear she knew me and what ‘tools’ I needed to get me back on track and take back control of my life and choices. She is professional, honest, reassuring, and someone who I respect and felt comfortable to share my most private thoughts with. She broke everything down and made it clear why I felt certain emotions and what the triggers were. She reassured me that I would get back to being my old self and at the time it felt like a dream, not a possibility. I now feel better than I ever have and appreciate the importance of time for me, as well as for my family! I have control of my life again. I looked forward to the weekly sessions and needed them for a period of time; when I realised, ‘I was almost ready to end them’, it felt daunting at first. But everything Sharon taught me has now given me the confidence to recognise my feelings and what makes me happy. She has transformed my lifestyle with what appears only minor adjustments, but I know how important these are for me. I now wake up in the morning looking forward to the day and whatever it holds. Four months ago, I wouldn’t have been able to say that. I can’t thank Believe and Achieve enough and recommend Sharon to anyone. I miss my weekly sessions but I’m also thankful to her that I no longer need them.

I went in to this with a mixture of trepidation and hope - the first session I knew I’d made a good decision. Sharon put me at ease immediately, her professionalism, skill and expertise was evident from the start. Thank you Sharon for helping me sort the wood from the trees and opening up my life again - such a relief and so good having the knowledge to be able to ‘empty my own bucket’! Thanks

 I have thought of many ways to describe how I was feeling, the very first time I walked in to Sharon's Therapy room, Just in August of this year! But......to say I was spending days, weeks and months laid on my daughters couch, With my granddaughter on my chest, "Reasons to Live". Would be an understatement.

After just a few months laid on Sharon's Therapy Bed, I now realize that summer was just a stormy season...........and that I now look forward to Autumn.   SO! if your looking for your SUNSHINE! I would most definitely contact Sharon. Things take time, Sharon helped me find my Autumn. And for that I will be forever grateful.

Excellent therapist. Calm caring, listens and responds professionally but with such an amazing calmness and understanding. Not pushy with appointments. Keeps you well informed of previous appointments and how far you have come. Highly recommend.

Thank You - I have been visiting Sharon for Hypno/Physcho Therapy and feel like a new person. I cannot emphasise enough what a difference this has made to my life and for the first time in a lot of years I feel happy and confident and looking forward to the future after a particularly tough period. Sharon has helped me to understand my stress and taught me how to put behind me the causes of those stresses so I can move forward. I also have the tools in place to help me handle any future issues I might have. I have recommended Sharon to a lot of my friends who have all seen a big difference in me. Thank you Sharon

Just When I Thought No One Could Help Me
I've had a lot of issues since I was 16 with having personality disorder, bipolar and PTSD then in 2019 i was diagnosed with chronic IBS. Over the years I've had numerous numbers of counselling, talking therapy sessions and non of this worked. When I was diagnosed with the chronic IBS I was losing weight not eat meals and in so much pain and all this was causing me more stress than I was already going through.
So i looked up hypnotherapy sessions and Sharon's name came up and I'm glad it did because what this amazing woman has done for me is beyond belief.
Sharon has helped me over the last 5 months having weekly hypnotherapy sessions, to 2 weekly then to monthly and making me realise I do still have a lot to live for and completely changed the way my mind works in a very positive way. I can not recommend Sharon enough for what she has done for me and my family
For me to feel human and she's only a call away if I do need anymore support
Thank you so much Sharon

Just When I’d Given Up .... Along Came Sharon
I had suffered for years with anxiety & a phobia the two working hand in hand were having a serious effect on my way of living. It was controlling the most everyday situations without me even realising. I started with Sharon in January 2020 and immediately I knew this was going to be the therapy for me, we managed zoom sessions all the way through lockdown and these were fully effective just in the same way face to face was. Not only was there the Hypnotherapy side but Sharon’s kind nature and soothing voice put any worries to one side during every session. I’m nearing the end of my time with Sharon with just a few ‘check in’ sessions scheduled and I cannot thank her enough or shout from the rooftops how much she has changed the way I handle/tackle those tricky situations - as everyday situations will happen, it’s the way the brain reacts. My journey with Sharon wasn’t a smooth one for myself, as I had many large obstacles thrown in my way but separating my journey & applying them in my life would of been 100% different without Sharon’s Hypnotherapy.
Some things were made by small changes and some bigger than others but every step along my journey I felt like everything had a purpose. Sharon has taught me ways to deal with things and I always have my recording for relaxation and reassurance that I CAN. If I ever feel like I need a session with Sharon I feel fully assured that she is only a message away . I couldn’t recommend enough, Sharon, and the work she does, words don’t do it justice, she’s changed my life for the better and I’ll be forever grateful for this, I wouldn’t hesitate to contact Sharon again if I felt I needed to. All the best Sharon you have a shining future ahead of you.
