About Flourish Hypnotherapy
I’m a professional hypnotherapist practising in Harrogate, North Yorkshire. I trained and qualified with the gold standard Hypnotherapy Practitioners’ Diploma. I am registered with the National Council for Hypnotherapy and hold an enhanced DBS certificate for working with vulnerable people.
Since 2011, I have enjoyed supporting clients, and helping them set themselves free from anxieties, phobias, unwanted habits or troubled times.
I've lived in Harrogate for over 25 years, providing hypnotherapy in the town and district for half that time. My journey has been a circuitous one. Having been brought up in Hertfordshire, I jumped ship to the North, taking my love of languages to Hull, where I studied linguistics with psychology. On graduating, I moved into the field of marketing communications, first with an agency, then in-house for a financial services company and finally setting up my own research and communications consultancy.
Working in the not-for-profit sector latterly, I was intrigued by the Theory of Change which helps organisations realise their aspirations by following a model of specific steps. I became interested in Solution Focused Therapy and Hypnotherapy, which empower people to change their personal lives in a similar way, but supported by the power of the unconscious mind. Having experienced hypnotherapy for anxiety at first hand, with astonishing results, I decided to train with the Academy of Clinical and Medical Hypnosis, gaining the gold standard Hypnotherapy Practice Diploma, the only externally validated qualification for hypnotherapists. I have additional qualifications in stress management and coaching and am a full member of the National Council for Hypnotherapy.
When I'm not seeing clients in peaceful and private rooms on the edge of town, I can be found walking my labradoodle, enjoying board games, watching world cinema or practising Spanish conversation.
If you are seeking change, contact me in confidence.
"The way Sarah made me feel comfortable in the session, made me feel like I could talk to her about anything, this made me feel relaxed and that is the most Important key to success for hypnotherapy. We discussed so much in detail it was great."
"I came to see you with a phobia of needles. I would like to let you know that with your help I have been able to face my fears. I had a hip replacement 6 weeks ago which has been life-changing. I am so grateful for the help you gave me and am looking forward to getting my life back on track. "
