About me

Susan is a fully registered Clinical Hypnotherapist and Supervisor with over 10 years experience. Susan works with both adults and children who are suffering from the symptoms of depression, anxiety and stress which may result in sleep problems, erratic eating patterns leading to weight gain, angry outbursts and many other negative behavioural and symptom patterns. Susan is flexible in her work with clients offering 1:1 clinical sessions, SKYPE or Telephone Therapy (or a mixture of both), or, for some conditions Single Session Therapy which can help clients to move forward even if they do not have time to attend regular sessions.
