Helping you overcome anxiety, phobias and habits

I thought I’d give hypnotherapy a try when my golf playing became horrendous. I found the sessions to be very relaxing and calming and they have definitely helped me to start enjoying the game, even playing better. I have even noticed a change in other aspects of my life.

I found my sessions with Sarah very calming and professional, she’s such a lovely lady and so easy to talk to. During my sessions she made me feel comfortable and nothing was ever too much for her! More to the point the hypnotherapy worked!!!

Focus Coaching & Hypnotherapy is based in Newcastle-under-Lyme in Staffordshire. Sarah is passionate about helping you feel the freedom to live joyfully. So whether its a phobia, a habit or anxiety holding you back, she can help! The subconscious mind is so receptive to words of healing. But when we target a problem on a conscious level too, the outcome is more powerful. So combining Hypnotherapy with Life Coaching will help you tackle your problems from all angles.

These are some of the areas Sarah can help you with:


This is a protective mechanism that is healthy in small doses. But if it gets out of hand, it can take over your life and cause you to shy away from friends and family. Worries can take over your thoughts and you may experience panic attacks, migraines and tension.

A phobia causes an immediate reaction  – the fight or flight mechanism kicks in and takes over your body. The trigger is often subconcious, from a past event.  With a phobia you are likely to avoid the trigger at all costs. This can impact your ife and the lives of those around you. Hypnotherapy for phobias is a great alternative to exposure therapy. Examples include fear of flying. fear of the dark, fear of needles, fear of public speaking.

These are automatic impulses that have formed over time. Now they’re a part of every day life. There’s always a reason why we form habits, but these can vary. Examples include nail biting, smoking & hair pulling. Hypnotherapy for habits can find the root cause of the habit. Tackling habits both subconsciously and consciously helps to remove them completely.
