Sam Luxford

Photo of Sam Luxford of Aberdeen HyponotherapyI am a trained Registered General Nurse and Registered Mental Nurse and have worked within the NHS since 1986. I have specialised in Mental health and Addictions for the past 20 years.

Developing my interest I have made a natural progression into Clinical Hypnotherapy. I completed the Hypnotherapy Practitioners Diploma/HPD and the Diploma in Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy/DHP at The Clifton Practice, Bristol, one of the UK’s leading accredited courses.The HPD is a nationally recognised qualification at level 4 on the National Qualifications Framework; this is an endorsement of the quality, amount and level of learning required to achieve the HPD.

Having spent my career in Mental Health and Addictions, I fully understand the complexities and strains of modern day life. Now, as a Clinical Hypnotherapist, I am committed to helping people to gain positive control of their lives through ‘solution focused’ therapy – concentrating on the future and what can be achieved rather than dwell on the past and on what might have been.

I am currently training for my Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma at The Clifton Practice in Bristol which is the leading hypnotherapy clinic in the South West and I will qualify in December.


I am a student member of the Association of Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (and the National Council for Hypnotherapists (NCH). As a student of this practice and under the supervision of experienced hypnotherapist Sam Luxford, who has been successfully practising for 9 years.


I first found hypnotherapy in 2014 to help deal with a long standing anxiety disorder. After successfully receiving treatment I then took 2 years out where I travelled through Australia and Canada. During my time in Australia I became a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor and a PADI Staff Instructor.


Now back in Scotland, I am looking forward to pursuing my passion in hypnotherapy to help other whilst gaining valuable experience working alongside Sam.

I visited Sam initially to help me stop smoking. In that one session, it was like a switch had been flipped. I just didn't need to smoke anymore. I wasn't struggling with it the same as previous failed attempts. It was just gone. Because of the success with the smoking, I decided to continue...
