Professional clinical hypnotherapist, NLP and EFT practitioner and life change specialist based in Brighton and Hove, Sussex. Accredited member of the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council. This is fully approved  by the General Medical Council for doctor's referrals.

Would you like to see immediate change without spending a long time talking about the past, and with someone who will encourage and support you in a non judgemental way to achieve your goals? 

I work using solution focused brief therapy, to bring about the most effective results for lasting change in the shortest possible time. Many clients easily reach their goals in just a couple of sessions. I use a variety of well proven methods to help clients attain these results. These include Hypnotherapy, Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), Havening, Mindfulness and Life Coaching skills. These are successful and proven methods and I look forward to helping you achieve your potential with a holistic and supportive approach that works!

Over 90% of my clients come through word of mouth, from people who have made amazingly positive changes to their life with my help!

Long Covid : Hypnotherapy is increasingly helping those people who are experiencing  symptoms of Long Covid. Please get in touch to see how I could be of assistance.

I have experience working with a very large range of conditions and problems, many of which may be overlapping and the lists in the sections below are by no means exhaustive. The good news is that if you want things to change they can be resolved, much more easily than you would believe possible! Self esteem is often at the heart of many problems, and clients report feeling relaxed and confident even after the first session. So if you would like help with anything from acne to weight loss (and everything in between) please give me a ring to discuss it. Areas I specialise in are:

  • Clinical hypnotherapy
  • Cognitive hypnotherapy                                                               
  • Hypnotherapy and children
  • Life Laundry

    Sometimes while it just isn't possible to change your present situation or past experiences, what you can do is to change your response to it and be free to move forward without those barriers. Since it is true that the only thing you can change in life is yourself, then hypnotherapy gives you your power back.

          Remember“If you always do what you've always done, then you'll always get what you always got.”

    “ I had been suffering from acute acne for ten years and had lots of treatments, none of which had worked. My skin had eroded my confidence and my desire to socialise. A dermatologist had prescribed a very serious course of medication, the side affects of which were awful. In my desperation for a solution that wasn’t so dangerous I decided to try hypnotherapy. I felt Sue really understood how upsetting the condition was, and felt reassured that we would find the cause and be able to work with that. Hypnotherapy with Sue released tension that I was holding on to, and gave me the space to realise that the skin condition was an act of self sabotage, in an otherwise contented life. I had three sessions of hypnotherapy and then disposed of the creams and face washes as my skin completely cleared up. I feel free to socialise and make spontaneous plans where before I would wait for a ‘good skin day.’ I have also learned that I have the ability to heal myself; I just needed a nudge to see that I had the solution all along.”

    Hypnotherapy is not a substitute for medical treatment for your condition, but it can work well in partnership or where conventional methods have not entirely succeeded. If in doubt please discuss with your doctor. By being in control and learning relaxation techniques you can improve the quality of your life.

  • Hypnotherapy for Children

    Hypnotherapy and NLP techniques work well with children as they naturally slip into trance like states and have great imaginations. They absorb information and new ideas readily and can quickly change habits and behaviour that may be life limiting. The sessions are relaxed and pleasant for the child and I work with the parent/caregiver to ensure that the child understands and wishes to make the changes. Usually success is achieved in one or two sessions.  The adult care-giver remains present as they are part of the solution. I am CRB checked and work with children from about six years and upwards who require  positive change in their lives.
