Sam was instrumental in helping me overcome an inability to relax and frequent feelings of heightened anxiety. I sought help because I feared this would hinder a distance-learning Masters degree I was undertaking, which necessitated sitting exams and the submission of a 20,000 dissertation. Both of these were unthinkable prior to the beginning of my sessions (as I’d previously confided to a doctor).
I’m sceptical by nature and do not relish talking about myself with a stranger in any capacity. From the very first session, the tone was friendly and welcoming; and by patiently introducing me to solution-focussed therapy and demonstrating the ease with which we can challenge negative thoughts, Sam showed me the benefits of hanging out in the left side of the brain.
The upshot being, the days leading up to my exam and thesis submission date were amongst the calmest I felt throughout the three-year course. Of course I was aware of the pressure/significance of the occasion(s) but I never felt overwhelmed and actually kind of welcomed them. Anyway, I found out last week I received a ‘Pass with Distinction’, and it’s no exaggeration to say Sam played a significant part in that success.
So many thanks.

I'VE LOST 18LBS SO FAR!! THANK YOU. X
Since the 1st visit I had with you, something clicked in my head. I've found it easy enough to not reach out for biscuits or bread or chocolate. Chocolate doesn't taste the same either. I never thought I'd manage without fruit buns, or chocolate. After 3 sessions with you I've found it easy to watch how much I eat. Listening to the cd every night in my bed really helps and I would highly recommend to anyone that's tried every diet going to try hypnotherapy with you.

I came to Sam to help me with my IBS. She helped me change my way of thinking about situations. I felt relaxed and positive after each session and started to notice changes almost immediately! She taught me how my brain works and how to control the unconscious part of my mind. I am now worrying much less and I am now doing things without a second thought. My IBS no longer stands in my way and I am delighted with what I have achieved in just six sessions!
I would recommend hypnotherapy to other IBS sufferers as it has really changed my outlook on life and my IBS does not stop me doing the things I want to do.

Having just finished my final session with Sally I am pleased to say how much more confident and in control I feel in relation to the anxiety and fear I associated with travelling, especially flying.
I was quite sceptical about trying hypnotherapy however I'm definitely a convert! I feel this process helps you to understand the mechanics of the brain and also that we can be in control of our lives and thought patterns.
So Sally thanks again for all your help. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending you.

I have been terrified of needles after a very bad experience when I was young. I avoided being put into any situation which would mean having to have and injection, including having tests for a health conditions. I would be worrying about going to the doctor.... just incase, and if I was in a situation when I had to have an injection I would have to plan it at a time when someone could come with me, I would have trouble sleeping before hand, have flash backs of previous injections and then at the time be in panic mode, crying, fast breathing and all the other high adrenaline side effects, making it harder for the nurse to give the injection or take blood. I even struggled to talk about injections or take my dog to the vet for her boosters!
I went to Sam to help me get over my phobia as I was going into hospital. Sam explained to me how my brain was reacting to the thought of an injection going back to my previous experiences and reactions. The hypnotherapy process was not what I was expecting but I was put into a state of deep relaxation. I came out of each session feeling relaxed and positive about my ability to get over my phobia. The 3 session treatment for needle phobia gave me tools to deal with having an injection and stopped the automatic panic I was experiencing. In the 4 month since my treatment I have had several injections and I am still using the techniques Sam taught me to deal with them. I had an unexpected injection just the other week and I had no of my old worries but stayed calm. I feel that Sam helped me reach my target and I no longer worry about having an injection.
I am now continuing my treatment with Sam in other areas of my life. I would definitely recommend her treatment to others.
