I feel passionate about helping people to manage and change everyday issues that impact on their happiness and well being.

IS YOUR ANXIETY TAKING OVER YOUR LIFE? .... Hypnotherapy can help !!

If YOU are committed
to take those important steps to make those essential changes in your life that have brought you to this website? please contact me.

Hypnotherapist's often meet people when they have tried every other option and the problem remains unchanged.

Well if you are serious I can support you to begin right now to change your life.

I have been a therapist for over 20 years and feel passionate about finding ways forward when life can be unbearable. I work full time as a professional therapist which means that I encounter and work with many people experiencing problematic thoughts, feelings and behaviours daily.


I feel that I really can help you because plan each individual hypnotherapy sessions based on your unique needs and goals to create a Personal Support Programme and where I feel it is appropriate, I integrate with counselling, psychotherapy and CBT. During our work together you can expect to develop new awareness and understanding of your own behaviours, thoughts and life patterns from that very first meeting, and you will have the support to find more appropriate alternatives . I have professional insurance and a designated therapy room. There is plenty of parking and transport links to M1, A38, bus route and local train stations.


Your therapy begins after the Free 30 minute Consultation Session when you get chance to meet and discuss your needs and ask any questions and identify your aims and goals, You can book your first session to ensure we make the best use of your time and money and achieve the outcomes you want. You will be listened to in complete confidentiality without being judged, in the calm, welcoming therapy room.


With hypnotherapy life can change . You already have the power in your unconscious mind to resolve issues and make the changes you want to make, you probably just haven’t realised it yet!

Hypnosis enables you to access your unconscious mind in a calm, focused way so you can make amazing changes and be who you want to be, set and reach those goals.  It’s not a miracle cure – you are your own miracle, you can live life fully.

If you're worried about any part of your life, or feel anxious and out of balance, find it difficult to let go of problems, feel unable to cope, exhausted, feel like you’re just existing rather than living, don’t wait any longer to do something about it.

I’d like to invite you to come along and find out how I work, and if you’re worried about a loved one, friend or relative, you can pass on my information to them. Working with someone who listens empathically and professionally with no emotional involvement or hidden agenda can enable you resolve your problems and take control to improve your health, happiness and well-being. It really is that simple.


As you are reading this, you have already taken the first step. To take the next step, I invite you discover the power of your own mind with Hypnotherapy, you are worth it. I welcome new clients and offer solutions for a wide variety of problems, you are welcome to contact me by phone or email to arrange your Complimentary 30 Minute Consultation Session.


  • I have stopped smoking and it took 2 sessions, I only wish I had done this years ago. It had affected my health but I am determined to get fit again now I can breath I will never smoke again because I put that money away and we are all going on holiday in November, that's how much I wasted on fags. So thanks Sue Rob Kirkby in Ashfield
  • I have not been able to enjoy life because my anxiety ruined everything for me. I couldn't get the motivation or beyond the fear of normal everyday things. Well now I can and it's down to Sue. My family can't believe the change in me. Janet Annesley Woodhouse.
  • The alcohol reduction programme has been amazing and in the 4 weeks I have given up drinking in the week and now enjoy it more at weekend s and I don't drink half the amount I would either. Thanks Sue. Alan Skegby.
  • My life has been changed because my anxiety is now in control. I feel I can get out of bed and live, my life is mine again. In 6 weeks I feel a different person and wish i had known about Sue 15 years ago. Thank you. John Chesterfield.
  • My feedback to Sue regarding my marital issues and my lack of confidence in myself.Hypnotherapy sessions have been very helpful. I now have more confidence in myself and at work and more importantly in my relationship with my partner.  Things were really breaking down between us and when I first came we had been thinking it was over between us. We are getting on better and spending more time together and we both wanted that.

    I had some personal issues which were caused by my poor eating habits. Well Sue you have managed something neither my partner or my Mum  have ever been able to do, in 41 years I’ve never eaten or liked fruit or veg till now.

    I live a healthier lifestyle and have the confidence to talk about things with my partner openly and we are going on holiday to Tenerife in August for 8 days. My partner was dreading it and now we both can’t wait to go.  Everything seems to be bringing us closer together now. Thank you Sue.

  • STOP SMOKING , I can't believe I have been able to stop, it was costing me my health, my family were at risk and I have tried so many times and failed. This programme really does work, it was worth every penny and covered in a month by what I pay for fags. Barry Skegby June 17. Thanks Sue
  • Hi Sue I felt totally at ease and relaxed during my first session whilst always feeling in control. I'm not sure what my expectations were for the first session but I certainly didn't feel disappointed and am looking forward greatly to my next session.

    To someone who was considering hypnotherapy I would say ' there is nothing to fear and everything to gain'.

    Whilst feeling I will have a better judgement after a few more sessions, I am totally willing for my views to be shared. Best regards, SC

  • Hi Sue. Firstly I want to say 'thank you' again for your amazing help in enabling me to access my inner resources to gain control of my lifestyle. Life is so much better now that I am living a healthier way, I continue to exercise 'mindfulness' most days.

    We have been away for a couple of holidays since we last spoke and I have enjoyed a glass of wine occasionally with my husband, but no more than 2 glasses!

    I would be happy for you to use my experience in your work:-

    'I approached Sue when I knew that I did not have the ability to control my desire for 'a glass of wine' at tea time' which always led to one or two more after tea!, this had become a habit and certainly wasn't healthy. Moreover, social occasions usually meant I got a little tipsy - much to my partner's dismay!

    I had also become overweight which concerned me too - health guidelines meant I could be a candidate for diabetes, heart problems etc.

    When I approached Sue I asked if hypnotherapy could help me, her responding 'yes' was like a lifeline to me. We had a consultation the same day and talked for an hour, where Sue asked me if I had any other issues that I wanted to deal with.   At home, I filled in a questionnaire and returned it to her by email, 5 days later I had my first session of therapy, and amazingly I was able to take control of my 'habit' immediately. By week four I had also lost 4 kilos in weight,  and Sue and I agreed that I was now in a position to move forward with the inner tools she had enabled me to take hold of - I will be eternally grateful for her expertise and help, and would certainly recommend this therapy.'   Sue W

  • ps: my weight loss is now 5 kilos
