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.

I came to Sam feeling desperately trapped in a vicious cycle of repeated binge eating episodes. I found my behaviour alarming, going to great lengths to get the food I wanted and gorging on it until I felt sick. Feelings of shame and guilt would follow, along with fasting, exercising or calorie control to try and ‘undo’ some of the damage I’d done. Sam has helped me to restore calmness into my life and address the underlying issues that are causing this. I found the hypnotherapy very relaxing and the exercises that Sam used on me were certainly thought provoking. I also found that Sam took a genuine interest in my problem and would always go the extra mile in directing me to further information or reading. I’m grateful for the help I have received to date and look forward to continuing my treatment and reaching my ultimate goal of no longer relying on this addictive behaviour to deal with my emotions. Sam is just lovely and I would happily recommend her to anyone.

I was initially very sceptical about going to see Sam and only did so when circumstances forced me into it.
From the start Sam put me entirely at ease and immediately removed the idea that there was anything weak or wrong about trying to deal with my issues - primarily anger management and control.
There was initially a thought within me that I would go along once and basically then dismiss the idea, however after my first session, I felt so different that I actually looked forwrad to the next week.
The key difference between what I expected and what actually happened is that Sam will not tell you how to feel or what to do. The sessions encourage you to speak about why you are there but primarily the progress is made as you come to your own conclusions and recognize your own issues and how you would like to change them. This is so different to what I expected and is perhaps the main reason for the success. You will not be told how to feel or what to do but you will be encouraged to assess yourself and the result is a real sense of satisfaction as you have arrived at your own conclusions rather than someone else's.
The detail of how the brain works and the conflict between the right and left sides (subconscious and conscious minds) was the first thing discussed and it stayed within me from there on in. Out with the sessions, I found myself dealing with matters by referring to this theory and consciously allowing the left or logical side of my brain to respond instead of the more Neanderthal right side reacting.
The actual process of hypnotherapy was again something that I was sceptical about as you do initially relate it to showbiz type stage hypnosis. However nothing could be further from the truth and the actuality leaves you extremely refreshed and very focused on how to change and progress.
I have now completed 7 sessions, the last of which was a very happy experience as I was able to tell Sam that she had indeed made the huge difference that she suggested at the first meeting.
I know that by maintaining the focus on everything that we discussed and dealt with I have regained and will maintain control in situations where previously my reactions could have proved very destructive.
