Stephanie Futcher - Therapysage
I am a hypnotherapist, counsellor and life coach. I help people deal with anxiety, stress, fears, pain and unwanted habits. I believe that all of us have within us the means to help ourselves, grow and live life more fully. Unfortunately most of us get hurt and confused and lose the sense of direction which tells us which way is right for us.
Just as there are lots of different ways of becoming troubled and unhappy so there are lots of different therapeutic methods. I can offer a range of approaches to suit each individual client. Some people want to focus on solutions and building coping skills; others want to explore the roots of their problems to unravel the reasons for their unhappiness. Many people seek a combination of the two approaches. Feeling you can choose, taking control and making decisions about the work are an important part of the therapy.

I usually charge £40 for each one hour session but I am happy to negotiate concessions if people have financial difficulties.
I practise in Chesterfield and Sheffield. I usually practice in my home but I can see people elsewhere by arrangement.
I give talks and guided relaxation/visualisation sessions to groups. This usually takes the form of a de-stress and refresh session.
