What is rooted is easy to nourish.
What is recent is easy to correct.
What is brittle is easy to break.
What is small is easy to scatter.

Prevent trouble before it arises.
Put things in order before they exist.
The giant pine tree grows from a tiny sprout.
The journey of a thousand miles starts from beneath your feet.

As a clinical hypnotherapist, Susan works with adults and children alike, working with stress, anxiety and depression related issues, unwanted habits and improving self-esteem.
Hypnosis is an altered state of consciousness characterised by deep mental and physical relaxation. In this very pleasant, deeply relaxed state, our minds become more focused and we can access the unconscious mind allowing us to change patterns of unwanted behaviour.

Through Hypnotherapy you can effectively reclaim and re-balance your life in a secure, positive and fulfilling way.

Having worked for over 20 years in the corporate world, Susan understands the stresses and strains that come with balancing work and family life. Susan is particularly interested in teaching techniques for stress and anxiety reduction through progressive relaxation.
