Hi I'm Sharon, thank you for visiting my profile and congratulations on taking your first steps to achieving your goal.
Life can be tough, resulting in anxiety, stress, poor work life balance, work stress, emotional eating, poor sleep, smoking and other issues. Life also throws curve balls such as menopause, but you do have choices... you can take control...
...and I am here to help!
I am a fully qualified Clinical Hypnotherapist and I get great satisfaction in my clients making positive changes to their lives, I consider it a privileged to be part of their journey. I've been interested in hypnotherapy all my adult life, having first experiencing it many years ago when I was nursing. I love the effect it can have and the difference hypnotherapy can make to achievement and well-being.
I have a friendly, caring and empathetic attitude and I always maintain high professional standards. I use a holistic approach and all hypnotherapy sessions are individualised for each client and their needs.
Alongside hypnotherapy, I offer Occupational Stress management. Using techniques such as relaxation and visualisation I am able to work with individuals and groups to help manage work related stress. I am also an Advanced Menopause Relief Practitioner working with ladies and men (yes men have a menopause too!)
All sessions are online at the moment due to Covid restrictions. I will be offering face to face sessions again as soon as it is safe to do so.
Online sessions are safe and just as effective as face to face sessions, you can't be left in trance. My clients have been surprised how easy and enjoyable their online sessions have been. You can have your therapy session in the comfort of your own home without the hassle of traveling to see me. You also have the advantage of being able to book with a therapist nationally rather than just locally. If you are unsure of using online therapy please talk to me so that I can guide you and alleviate any worries or concerns. Believe me, if I can use online then anyone can!
How to book an appointment with me.
Contact me via phone or email telling me a little bit about the problem you would like help with. I will invite you to a free no obligation discovery session which lasts 30 - 60 minutes. This session gives us both the opportunity to get to know each other a little better. During the discovery session I will ask questions so that I can fully appreciate the problem you would like help with. I will also discuss your expectations regarding hypnotherapy and together we will look at what you would like to achieve. This session gives you the opportunity to ask questions and decide if you want to proceed with the hypnotherapy sessions.
If you are happy to proceed, we can go ahead and book your first therapy session.

What Hypnotherapy is:
Hypnosis works by accessing the subconscious mind and allowing the conscious mind to become less active. The individual is aware of their surroundings and remains in control at all times. You can bring yourself out of trance anytime you want to. By the hypnotherapist and the client working closely together the therapist is able to make suggestions based on the individual’s own needs. The aim is that the suggestions enable the client to alter their behaviours and thoughts. The individual can choose to accept or reject the suggestions even when they are in trance.
