About me

Working for over 20 years for credible fast paced commercial companies has enabled me to gain valuable and essential work and life skills. I started my career initially in account management, working through to managerial roles which also incorporated training, coaching and mentoring the teams I was responsible for.

It was through this time that I developed my expertise and skills in focussing on the enhancement of an individual's performance through facilitating small changes in behaviours and habits.

Now qualified as a Clinical Hypnotherapist for the last 10 years, these past corporate skills and experiences coupled with the quality delivery of Hypnotherapy techniques, can make powerful and lasting change.  Having conducted thousands of sessions through these 10 years, I focus in key areas where my expertise can help my clients achieve their goals.

Clients come to me with a range of conditions and concerns that can be as diverse as weight-loss, addictions and anxiety through to nail biting, phobias and public speaking.  Using a range of different tools and techniques we can help bring real and positive change to the day to day function of ordinary people.

Recent client recommendation has been high, with new clients being introduced to me through previous client experience as well as strong relationships with my local GP clinics, dentist surgeries and school support networks.

Member organisations

Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC)

The CNHC encompasses many types of alternative therapy, including hypnotherapy.

In order to be admitted to the register a practitioner must have studied to the National Occupational Standards for that profession/discipline, or have reached the equivalent of the National Occupational Standards through other relevant training or at least three years of experience and been assessed by their peers.

A practitioner must also have professional insurance and agree to abide by the CNHC Code of Conduct, Performance and Ethics.

The General Hypnotherapy Register (GHR)

Hypnotherapists may become members of the General Hypnotherapy Register if they satisfy certain criteria with regard to both training and ongoing requirements as determined from time to time by the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council (GHSC).

Members are either registered at Practitioner status (which confirms that the GHR acknowledges their qualification to practice), or Affiliate status. Although Affiliate level registrants will have completed a sufficient number of training hours to equip them to commence seeing clients on a limited basis, the GHR does not acknowledge them to have yet been trained to full practitioner level.

All GHR Registered Practitioners are required to accept the published Code of Ethics and Complaints & Disciplinary Procedure.

Areas of hypnotherapy I deal with

Information about health conditions (*)

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.

Other areas of hypnotherapy I deal with

Children's Hypnotherapy is becoming an increasing area of focus for my practice with building strong relationships with schools and GP practices in my area.  Please take a look at my additional website for further specific information

Further information


"By complete chance I came across Sue and hypnotherapy. I waspart way through my assessment preparation to become a Chartered Surveyor. I have always suffered from exam stress and worry throughoutmy career development and this time was no different.  In my first session I didn’t know what to expect but Sue’s kindand friendly nature puts your mind at ease. Through hypnotherapy Sue helped meto improve my self-confidence and anxiety as well as teaching me techniques tohelp control nerves on the day of assessment.
In addition to hypnotherapy I found it hugely beneficial tohave someone to talk too, who really understood what I was going through andwho supported me all the way.
I am thrilled to be able to say I PASSED and I cannotexpress enough how Sue and hypnotherapy have helped me to achieve my goal. Iwould not hesitate to recommend Sue and hypnotherapy. If in doubt give it a trybecause if you don’t you will never know what a difference it can make! Thank you Sue you truly are a ‘Star’ "LC Xx Nov 2014

"...we waited and waited for the 'system' to help us, but family life was unrecognisable, as was my son, and we were pointed in Sue's direction by our friend and school nurse.  Therapy for a younger child is hard to find - so many people focus on teens and adults - I would whole-heartedly recommend seeing Sue with any concerns you may have" PP Jun 2014

"Sues hypnotherapy has helped me change my life for the best , I came with a weight problem and have made major changes to my lifestyle and my relationship with food . I have had to work hard at it and am still doing so and this is because Sues therapy has taught me to think differently about food . I highly recommend her , you will get results !!!!!" AA Feb 2014
