Hypnotherapy Edinburgh | Hypnotherapy Treatments
Providing a range of hypnotherapy treatments, I specialise in the treatment of anxiety, stress and depression. You may be experiencing many symptoms that let you know you are not yourself. It doesn’t matter whether you know what the actual issue is and why you are experiencing it, that’s my job to identify that, and more importantly, help you over it.
You can read more about the treatments I offer below. If you are unsure about where you need help, that’s OK. Just contact me and we can have a chat on the phone so I can understand a little more and advise how I can help.
Anxiety comes in many forms. The most recognised anxiety related disorders include;
- OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder)
- PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder)
- Generalised anxiety
- Social anxiety
- Panic Attacks (related to the above)
The key thing to know is that you don’t need to feel like this.
I visited Sara during a time in my life where I had undergone a lot of change which in turn resulted in a huge amount of anxiety for me. The anxiety I suffered was so bad that sometimes it was so difficult for me to get out of bed in the morning. I wasn’t myself. My mind was constantly elsewhere, never in the present. I knew I didn’t have to go on feeling like this and wanted to do something to fix it so I went to see Sara. After 2 sessions with her I seen a massive improvement in my well being. Through EFT and hypnotherapy, she helped me to view the things I had been through and to view change in a more positive way and taught me ways to tackle my anxiety when ever it cropped up. I honestly cannot recommend what she does highly enough, the skills she has and her amazing personality made me feel at complete ease when around her and I cant thank her enough for her help. I don’t know where I would be if I hadn’t decided to have a session with her
Panic attacks can seemingly go off at anytime and can be a very scary experience for you to have. The reason you are having panic attacks may be very clear or perhaps you are unsure. Either way, panic attacks can be treated easily and effectively with hypnosis.
Panic Attacks, James
“I had spent most of my adult life avoiding situations that would bring on my claustrophobic panic attacks. However, an upcoming MRI Scan meant that I could no longer avoid such a situation especially as it was necessary for my future health. Sara quickly responded to my need and fitted me in to her schedule. Sara took the time to ask me about my life and the possible reasons for the causes of my problem and she then used ideas and language that I understood and could relate to explain to me the problem, and from that using hypnotherapy and EFT, brought positive and truly life changing results. Sara is a caring person who makes no judgements but uses her skill and experience to resolve, in my case, long time problems. I only wish I had gone to her much earlier in my life.”
PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder) is very common yet often mis-diagnosed as anxiety or depression. If you can think of an event in your life, or multiple events and still feel anxious or emotional about them, then it’s possible you have PTSD. PTSD can be easily treated with a blend of hypnotherapy, EFT and other modalities that I bring into a session.
Post Traumatic Stress, Sarah
In the past year I had been finding I was feeling more and more unmotivated in my work, lacking in energy and had been struck down with a variety of illnesses. I wasn’t really sure how to make changes in my life or why I was feeling so low but I knew I couldn’t carry on. I contacted Sara for some help and I am so glad that I did. She really listened to me and helped me realise why I was feeling the way I was. Through excellent relaxation techniques she helped me work through the problems and after just 1 session I felt like a completely different person. A weight was lifted and I could see how to move forward. I have since returned for 2 further sessions with Sara where she has taught me EFT, an amazing technique which I now use independently and with a great level of success. My new positive frame of mind has meant that I have taken up running, am eating healthier and I have so much more energy! I can’t thank Sara enough and am happy to recommend her friendly, enjoyable and above all effective methods of therapy to anyone.
Depression can make you feel you are the only person in the world that feels like this. I help people like you to over come depression and also provide you with the techniques and resources to help you to stay that way.
Overcoming Depression, Alanna
“Sara has taught me a new approach to helping me with recurring anxiety and depression. When I first went to see Sara I was a complete mess and didn’t know which way to turn. I was on medication for my depression which just wasn’t helping, Sara helped me to gain the strength to come off these for good and taught me useful tools to fight against these horrible feelings I was getting. A few days after my initial consultation I felt something had shifted in my way of thinking, it’s hard to explain but I just felt alive again. She is such a caring person and she instantly puts you at ease. I know that what Sara has taught me will remain with me so that I can have a happy healthy life. If I ever need help in the future Sara will be the person I will go to”
It’s natural for you to experience feeling a little stressed from time to time. But when you find yourself unable to cope, sleep well and think straight, then it’s time to get help. I specialise in stress management and together with treating why you are stressed, I will give you all you need to remain cool, calm and collected.
Stress at work, Grace
“Undertaking work with Sara proved to be really effective in terms of me managing my stress at work. When I first went to see Sara, I felt backed into a corner at work with little control over the situation. By spending some time with Sara and exploring techniques to manage my response to stress, I learnt some really useful techniques. I particularly liked using the HeartMath technique and still use this method on a daily basis.”
Grief is a very complex emotion and it’s natural that part of you will miss the person you have lost from your life. Using gentle hypnosis, I help to release you from the more painful emotions you are experiencing, helping you to create space in your heart and mind for remembering the good times.
Grief and bereavement, Mari
“I saw Sara a few months ago to help me stop smoking, but a few days before my first session I lost a very good friend and by the time I saw Sara I was in a very dark place… She helped me deal with my emotions, showed deep empathy and respect for all the issues we talked about and after our second session I was feeling much stronger. I would definitely see Sara again if I feel I need her support”
I love helping women build self esteem and confidence in themselves. The relationship you have with yourself and the way you view yourself is very related to your beliefs and thought patterns, all of which can be addressed with a powerful combination of hypnotherapy and EFT.
Confidence and self esteem, Sophie
“My confidence was my main problem for me after being bullied at school . I felt a lot of anxiety about what people thought about me, how I came across and whether I was liked or not. I assumed I was disliked so this made me feel awkward around people. I also dreaded going out socially on my own.I had a great experience as after each session I felt a different person I felt amazing and happy and much calmer when I left after a session. I believed in myself and began to believe it doesn’t matter what people think about me. I am a happy kind person and if people don’t like that about me then that doesn’t matter.The experience has given me loads of confidence in day to day situations which I never had. I’m not afraid to ask for help as the worst that someone can say is no or I don’t know. I’m also not scared to say what I am thinking. This experience has changed me and I feel like another person. The person I want to be happy , confident and not afraid if what others think of me.”
Most people would rather jump off a cliff than speak in public! It is one of the most common fears people have. However the great thing about the fear, is it only exists in the mind, which triggers the physical reaction. As the fear is in the mind, it can be changed through hypnotherapy.
Presentations and public speaking, Faith
For a number of years, I have suffered from anxiety presenting to small and large groups, resulting in quite a few panic attacks. I knew I needed to get to the route of my issues. On introduction – Sara immediately put me at ease. She was so relaxed, sympathetic and “normal”! After chatting with Sara and practicing some of the EFT techniques and hypnotherapy I couldn’t believe the immediate change in me – I was truly astounded! I have since presented a number of times and that fear I faced for years has now vanished. You have honestly changed my life – thank you!!!!!
Fear’s and phobias can be highly debilitating. Whether you are experiencing a fear of flying, a fear of driving or even a fear of pigeons you can be set free from your fears and gain back control of your life.
Fear of flying and generalised anxiety, Shakuntala
I live in India and for a long I had been going through emotional and health problems. I stopped travelling to far off places and as a result I never travelled by air for nearly 25 years. My daughter and son in law are based in Edinburgh. Since my daughter was expecting a baby, I had to make a trip to be with her. I somehow managed to travel with one of my relatives and the use of strong medication, but air travel always makes me sick and anxious. During my stay with my daughter and Son in law, they insisted I try hypnotherapy . I had tried a psychologist and a psychiatrist to help with my anxiety but nothing seemed to have worked. I thought this would be the ultimate thing to do. During my sessions I was relaxed but I thought, I will get to know whether the therapy works only when I am on a plane. The day had come, I was travelling or the first time all alone. When I boarded the plane I felt fine and felt it was normal to travel like this. I spent 9 hours watching movies and napping, which I never did before. I myself was amazed by this feeling. After reaching India, within few days I have come to Singapore to see my son and his family. Again the travel experience from India to Singapore was great.
I recommend Sara highly, one should go through this ultimate experience to get over any problem they are facing.
