Hypnotherapy is an incredibly successful way of helping people with an enormous number of psychological and emotional problems.
Hypnosis is a safe powerful technique which creates a deeply relaxed state of mind and body. This is similar to a natural state that we enter into many times a day. It is a relaxed state somewhere being awake and asleep, a little bit like day dreaming. Whilst in this state the subconscious mind can be very receptive to beneficial suggestions which will promote a positive change. Throughout a treatment you will always be aware and in total control.
So many of us feel that something is not quite right, we don’t feel 100% but we just can’t put our finger on what is wrong. We can go through life as thought we are carrying a great weight on our shoulders but have no idea how to rid ourselves of our problem. Through hypnosis we can tap into our “HIGHER” self, the true essence and spiritual part of ourselves where all the answers lie. Over the past few decades the world has been moving at such a fast pace that we as spiritual sovereign beings have lost track of who we really are since our time of birth due to external influences such as the family we are born into, our education, religious beliefs, peer pressure etc. We forget that we are the master of ourselves therefore have the ability to navigate through the muddy waters of life with ease. This is something that has never been taught to us, this is for us to discover for ourselves !
What is hypnosis?
Hypnosis can be traced back to the time of the ancient Egyptians and has been used for centuries. It is an extremely effective, gentle and safe way of treating any problem (remember it’s only a problem if you make it a problem). The mind truly is a powerful tool when you are guided and shown how to use it! Please find some examples below of just some of the problems it can help overcome in a very short space of time.

I have suffered anxiety for many years and tried to fight it myself. I tried CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy) and this for me was very unhelpful. I was not wanting to take long term medication so therefore struggled for along time on my own. Eventually the anxiety took over and i was unable to do a lot of daily things let alone go anywhere. This didn’t only have a massive affect on me but also my husband and 3 young children. My children were becoming aware of my anxiety and got most upset when they saw me having panic attacks. I lost a lot of weight and was unable to function properly on a day to day basis. I had heard about hypnotherapy but sat very much on the fence. I had to go to London as my family were all getting together and thought “how on earth am i going to manage?” At this point i phoned Sally-Ann for advice and decided to go for it as i had nothing to loose. My first appointment saw my anxiety through the roof but Sally-Ann made me feel very welcome and before long i had calmed down. My first session was an amazing experience but went away still sitting on the fence. A week later i returned and had one more session and my experience at this one was fantastic. I got to London, went on the tubes, rides etc etc and can even get out of my village to hit the shops! I will always fight with my anxiety but whatever Sally-Ann did on my 2 sessions it has worked and my children can see such a difference in me and my weight is started to creep up. I highly recommend this service to anyone that suffers anxiety or any issues in their lives. Don’t give up ! Thank you once again Sally-Ann.Lorraine xx
I had a car accident in June 2013 and found it incredibly difficult to not only drive but get into the car! I went to my doctors who could help with drugs but I decided to try hypnotherapy to see if this would help first. I have to say it was AMAZING I only needed one session and I am 99% better in the car and while driving – in fact I think I am more confident than I was before! My health issues relating to this are now non-existent – I would recommend using this therapy if you have an issue that just doesn’t seem to want to go away!!! THANK YOU again and again and again! Susan.
Lacking motivation and confidence I went to Sally Ann to help me!! She taught me techniques to motivate myself and build up my self confidence. All I can say is that I was astounded at how quickly and easily it worked and help me totally change my life and find new opportunities which I would have normally missed. It has really changed my outlook on life for the better. Tommy.
Having been a smoker for over 20yrs I decided at the start of this year it was time to give up. I was put on the patches with each patch staying on for 24hrs. Over the first week it certainly reduced my cravings but I did have the occasional cigarette as I couldn’t get all the cravings out my mind. Having had a chat with Sally Anne about hypnotherapy to help me stop completely I thought I would give it a try although I was quiet nervous and sceptical about the hole process. Sally Ann and I sat talking for a while as to why I wanted to stop, we discussed the benefits both medical & financial, which when added up the money I would be saving was incredible! After chatting Sally Ann had me lie down on the comfy bed & began the hypnotherapy. I was very much aware and in total control throughout the hole process. I felt so relaxed listening to Sally Ann’s voice and at one point got a bit emotional. When Sally Ann had finished I sat up feeling very refreshed but very much aware of everything that was said. I went straight home, took off the patch and its now been 5 wks and I can honestly say I have had not one craving for a cigarette since! I can’t believe after all these years I am now finally a non smoker! I would certainly recommend Sally Ann to anyone wanting to kick the habit, she was truly amazing and I am so grateful to her. That’s me now booked our summer holiday and the money I will have saved from smoking has paid for it all!! Thank you so much Sally Ann. Lorna.
I was still a little dazed and lost for words when our session finished on Friday. So, just wanted to say thank you, again, for your time.
I felt like a weight had been lifted and the ‘thing’ did not come into my thoughts at all for the rest of the day. It tried to return over the weekend but the technique to shut it down by just saying “no, shut the f**k up” has been very effective. One day I want to understand why an imaginary thing could have such an impact on my mental health, but I’d like to finish by saying I found our one session more beneficial than 8 sessions of cognitive behavioural therapy.
With kind regards John W
