Sharon Mortimer HPD DSFH MAfSFH Believe & Achieve - Caring for Mind, Body & Soul
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 weight related issues as well as....
- stopping smoking/vaping,
- physical symptoms like hair pulling,
- insomnia, hair pulling & other physical habits
- pain management
- 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.

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

I had struggled with underlying anxiety/worry for many years and had had periods of panic attacks and overwhelming anxiety in the past. I started seeing Sharon in September 2020 hoping to get my anxiety under control and to enable myself with tools for me to manage it. Sharon is very warm and friendly, and easy to talk to and I felt very comfortable. On our sessions over Zoom we worked on helping me to think more positively and aid my sleep and with that I have felt much more rational and positive and my anxiety has dissipated. People around me have also noted how much more positive and relaxed I seem. I would thoroughly recommend hypnotherapy with Sharon, it’s really helped. Thank you 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.

Hypnotherapy - I wanted to control my anxiety and panic attacks. I can now rationalise my thoughts into a calmer logic process, I feel more assertive and much stronger. I wouldn't have changed a thing about my experience with Sharon she has patience and understanding and 100% professional in a friendly way. I feel normal again - it has been life changing. I would highly recommend without a doubt.
