What our clients say...

I booked a hypnotherapy course with Samantha as I wanted to find a way of dealing with emotional overeating. I found Sam to be very good at listening to me and asking me questions to help clarify what I wanted to get out of the sessions. She made sure that the steps she took with me were helping me to achieve my goals and was always clear about what I wanted to focus on. Most importantly, I found the sessions worked! Using the techniques Sam taught me have found I am now able to relax around food, question whether I need food or something else at that time and whether what I am about to eat is the best thing I could eat at that moment. So I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Sam and her program to others.

Teresa had hypnotherapy for losing weight including the hypnotic gastric band “It’s generally working, I have lost 1.5 stones so far and it’s ongoing.

Michael has “lost half a stone so far… (he has already lost some weight before seeing Samantha) he had a session to avoid chocolate “which has worked”, he also had stressful experiences at work which have been on his mind and the hypnotherapy to help with that “has also worked so far”.

Samantha was always ready to help with any queries about the hypnotherapy that we had.

From Teresa (Mum) and Michael (Son)

I must admit that when it comes to practices such as hypnotherapy I have always been a bit of a cynic. I’ve only ever seen it used to make people do silly things on stage and to trick people out of their hard earned money. I had reached a point in my life where I had tried several conventional weight loss methods all of which had the desired effects but only for a short time. I became fed up of wearing myself out at the gym and counting calories so when I saw the leaflet I thought I might as well give it a go – I’ve tried everything else! I went along with an open mind and a hint of desperation (I just wanted to be smaller). Sam and Rachel were very welcoming and made me feel at ease straight away.

Attending the sessions was great as it is almost like receiving counselling; being given the chance to talk openly about my eating and lifestyle habits. The hypnotherapy itself was very relaxing and the guidance and handouts given by Sam and Rachel have been very useful. I have learned to listen to my body and eat only when my body needs it & not as a reaction to emotions or just because it’s there!

The guilt and physical discomfort I used to feel after eating too much is gone because I no longer gorge on massive portions of food. My weight has reduced steadily since my treatment and quite honestly I don’t feel like I have made much of an effort to achieve my desired goal. I now make better food choices and listen to what my body wants and the best thing for me is that I can still enjoy food but all the horrible stuff that came with my past eating habits has gone away.

“Now friends and family comment on how I have lost weight and that my clothes are too big for me – all I can say is – I look forward to my next clothes shopping trip and thank you Sam and Rachel!”


I write this testimonial with heartfelt thanks. It is now five months since my first hypnotherapy session and I am delighted with the way I look and feel about myself. My goals were to gain the tools that would enable me to lose some excess weight and free myself from my obsession with food. Through four hypnotherapy sessions with Sam I gained those tools and an understanding that I could do this myself. I had a follow up appointment one month later and I was delighted that by this time I had lost weight and felt far more in control of the choices I made about food. Now another two months on I am still free of my original obsessive behaviour around food, I have kept the weight off and I feel very proud of myself for what I have achieved. So thank you Sam for all your help and support.


I was a little sceptical as to how the relaxation techniques would work for me; but now I can’t describe how beneficial they were then and have been since. By week two I didn’t want the session to end and by week four I’d got more out of the treatment than I ever thought possible.

Would I recommend this treatment? Yes, yes, yes!


I have been struggling with my weight for years.  I had often thought of hypnotherapy, but never done it…………………………. well now i have…… since having it done 6 weeks ago I have lost 21 pounds. It’s a fantastic way to lose weight; no measuring, know what you can and can’t eat.  Sam is great too, really understanding and is a person who makes you feel relaxed as soon as you walk in the room.. It’s the best thing I’ve done since having my children!!!!!!!!!! I have confidence back and belief in myself.”

Diets Don’t Work!

Diets Don’t Work!

In a study published in the New England Journal of Medicine, a group of Australian researchers found that diet-induced weight loss alters hormone levels for a full year and this in turn affects your appetite and so it makes if more difficult to tell if you are hungry or full. This leads to “successful” dieters putting the weight back on they have lost. Most of us have spent many years dieting and the reason it doesn’t work is that the change is not at a fundamental level. It is only a temporary measure. You could potentially be “on a diet” for the rest of your life! When we work with clients with weight reduction there are No Diets and No Forbidden... read more
