About me

Are you struggling with your relationship with food?

I will teach you how to change your mindset and negative thought patterns towards eating.
Though I dislike the phrase mindset and weight-loss I am passionate about helping you to live a life where every waking hour isn't consumed by thinking about eating.

This was the reason I became a hypnotherapist. I have also struggled over the years with emotional eating so I had to prove to myself first that I had the right tools before I could help others.

I use two well-researched and evidence-based approaches to help break unwanted eating habits and negative thought patterns around them.

The first is Solution Focused Hypnotherapy. I believe you are the expert on your own life and I am helping you to be the best version of yourself. This might seem a strange approach, after all, we normally seek the help of an expert to solve our problems! You know what you want to change, so that is our starting point. we will explore what difference that would make to your life and what will be different if the problem went away.

Our brain sees change as a fret so this approach rewires the brain into thinking in a more solution-focused way rather than dwelling on the problem.

Hypnotherapy or the trance state is a bit like daydreaming. When our mind is in a more relaxed state the subconscious mind is able to make changes.

Over the course of the therapy, I will encourage you to notice what other areas of your life are also improving. You might be surprised to notice how much positive change happens between sessions. This could be your sleep has improved, which has a big impact on mental wellbeing overall. During sleep, our brain is at its busiest processing emotions, repairing the body, etc.

My second approach is a four-step imagination tool, which can seem to have an almost magical effect. But there is science behind the process.

Firstly you will decide on something that you want to change, do less of, or even more of. This needs to be feasible but challenging. Secondly, you will explore the best possible outcome of making this change. Thirdly we will change gear and look for the inner obstacle which is stopping you from making that change. It could be an emotion, an irrational thought or belief, or just a bad habit. Whatever it is and this part can be challenging and sometimes emotional. I am here to support and guide you. Once the inner obstacle is found a plan is created. What this process does is create links in the mind that triggers off unconscious processes in the brain that then do the work for you.

What my clients say

I have really enjoyed my sessions with Susanne. She is friendly, positive and welcoming. She explained everything thoroughly to me and the principles behind what she does and why. I have struggled with my weight for many years and have often dealt with it quite negatively. Susanne has helped me to retrain my brain and break things down into manageable chunks. She listens and helps whilst giving you the tools and tips to go forward with. These tools have been massively helpful and I have also been able to apply them and use them in other areas of my life. I would recommend the weight sessions I took and recommend Susanne if you need help with this or anything else like anxiety. Thank you

Fabulous sessions with Susanne, where I was treated with respect, had many laughs and felt restored and relaxed. I can’t recommend her highly enough. I look forward to using her strategies and techniques. Thank you

I thoroughly enjoyed my sessions with Susanne. I felt instantly comfortable with talking and being open, made me feel super relaxed straight away. Susanne explained the process really well. It has helped me around my emotional eating/binges. Made me stop, pause to take a breathe and make better choices for myself and give me healthy coping mechanisms before going on a mindlessly numb binge. I only had a few sessions and this seemed to be enough to get me on the road to a newer, healthier me...and take action in my life with ditching the old habbits and creating new healthy ones. Thank you

Highly recommend Susanne. Honestly, she worked miracles on me and I’m so impressed with the results. Her therapy room is so warm and cosy you won’t want to leave!
