About me

My name is Sue and I am a fully qualified and registered hypnotherapist working in the Lincoln area.

I am a qualified and fully insured Clinical Hypnotherapist which I use as both  a stand alone therapy and also in conjunction with other complementary therapies that I offer.

I offer a dedicated, caring and professional service to help you make positive and lasting changes in your life. I am really enthusiastic about all the therapies that I practice in and really want to help my clients to obtain an overall feeling of well being. I have been a  complementary therapist since 2003 and I have been trained in hypnotherapy since 2007.

I am a registered member of the General Hypnotherapy Register (GHR) and I am committed to maintaining the highest standards of ethics and good practice within my work.

Alongside hypnosis I use techniques from other therapies  such as Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT).

I am dedicated to helping others with any issues, fears and phobias that they may have to enable them to take control of their lives and to enable them to enjoy life to the full.

I help my clients by providing a range of hypnotherapy services for their individual requirements such as anxiety, weight loss, confidence building, fears and  phobias .

I am  an Integral Eye Movement Therapy(IEMT) Practitioner  - this is a rapid change healing modality which helps clients to desensitise and disassociate unwanted emotions relating to past experiences and the personal identities we develop throughout our lives. If any of the following emotions are troubling you: Guilt, Regret, Remorse, Shame, Anxiety , Fear, Panic, Frustration then this could be the therapy for you.

I have undertaken training in "The Blueprint" -  Content Free Hypnotherapy System

I have undertaken training in the OldPain2Go methodology so if you have any old pains that you wish to be rid of contact me for more information.

Other therapies are also available(see list below).

Hypnotherapy is a natural safe and gentle way to treat many conditions. I welcome all enquiries and there is no obligation. If you contact me we can arrange to meet and chat over any issues and this will give me a chance to explain all about hypnotherapy and how we can plan any sessions to help you with any issues that you may have.  This session is free and there is no obligation. It will give you a chance to meet with me to discuss any issues and we can discuss how many sessions will be required and this session is also for you to decide if I am the therapist for you.

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.

Other areas of hypnotherapy I deal with

  • The Blueprint  content free hypnosis system


£60.00 per session
Free initial in-person session

Additional information

The first consultation is free and usually lasts up to an hour - this is so I can meet with you and discuss what area you would like help with. This involves an informal chat, to see how best hypnotherapy can help you. At this session, I will be able to give you an idea of how many sessions may be required. You are under no obligation to proceed with the therapy following this free session.

  • Each session costs £60. (We discuss how many sessions you are likely to require during our consultation).
  • I am a qualified Reiki  Practitioner and Teacher. Reiki can be used alongside conventional medicine or on it's own, to help you balance your emotions, or to help restore your physical or mental health.

I have had a fear of cats for about 30 years and was always too afraid to do anything about it. This has affected me in lots of ways such as visiting family if they have cats , going abroad on holiday where I've heard from people there are lots of cats. I have even been too scared to walk past them where I live. I found Sue's number on the intranet and had three hypnotherapy sessions and she taught me some techniques to help conquer my fears. Since this I have been abroad on holiday and walked past cats without the dread. I don't think I'll ever have a cat but this will make my day to day life easier without the constant fear I had before my sessions with Sue.

Debbie - Metheringham

Thank you so much for my Hypnotherapy and OldPain2Go Therapy! I managed to sit through my plane journey quite comfortably which I did not think would ever happen as I am usually petrified. It made my Holiday experience so much better! Brilliant! Thank you X

I went to see Sue for help with an emotional wellbeing issue. I was quite anxious about what hypnotherapy would involve – but I needn’t have worried! Sue did a thorough assessment session with me (which was free) and explained everything fully. During the sessions I was totally relaxed but still aware of everything that was happening. I was incredibly impressed with the way Sue integrated my specific issue into the session – she had given thought and prepared for my time with her and it was that relevance to me that made the sessions so effective. Even if hypnotherapy doesn’t work for you you can be assured of a deeply relaxing experience, listening to Sue’s calm and reassuring voice!
