Hypnotherapy and counselling methods

Witnessing untapped potential in others fills me with frustration, urging me to guide them towards fulfilling their aspirations and unveiling their hidden selves. I relish the opportunity to work intimately with clients, whether it be face-to-face, or through virtual platforms like Zoom.

Life has thrown numerous challenges my way throughout the years, including a recent battle with cancer—an unexpected wake-up call for a holistic therapist like myself. Neglecting self-care amidst the responsibilities of tending to others, be it family, clients, friends, or even strangers, left me vulnerable. Suddenly, I found myself facing, a traumatic and shocking experience.

Lived experience

My own journey with fibromyalgia, vestibular neuronitis, and other ailments prompted introspection, allowing me to release the negativity that had held me captive. I am no stranger to the nightmare of abusive relationships, the agony of battling for custody of my children, the persistent fear, and the torment of being stalked. My expanding knowledge base facilitated letting go of these burdens. The cancer forced me to delve within once more, dedicating time to self-discovery.

The necessity of undergoing surgery halted me in my tracks, compelling me to focus on myself. It was far from easy, but I persevered. Receiving the all-clear brought immense relief and a crucial realization: I possessed the power to choose life. I no longer desired to fight; instead, I sought peace. This epiphany restored my sense of control, ensuring that no one and nothing would dictate my life again. Although pain and suffering are inherent in life, I now choose happiness, health, and well-being, and can help you to do the same.

I am not merely a survivor—I thrive! Assisting others is my calling, my mission. I comprehend their pain, fear, anger, trauma, and the mask they wear to conceal their true selves. While I traversed this path alone, you need not do the same. I am here to help you reclaim your life, embracing freedom, health, and vitality, while living a life filled with passion.

I look forward to working with you.

With love and laughter,
Sara
