Hello! I’m Sarah…
Hypnotherapist & Life Coach
I’m based in Newcastle-under-Lyme in Staffordshire, but you can work with me online if you’re based anywhere in the UK or Europe!
As well as my running my business, I volunteer at my local library . This is the life I love – full of variety and freedom!!
I’m an introvert at heart – don’t get me wrong, I can be loud and very talkative! But when I need to recharge, curling up with a book in a quiet room suits me. Or find me at a watercolour class, pottery workshop or drumming class!
I’m a stickler for FOMO…..so I’m usually the one who says yes to every outing, to then find I have way too much in my diary! Life is for living after all.
Where it all started
But this is not the way I used to be. My career in Biomedical Science was very rewarding but also very demanding. I often worked overtime and felt guilty that I wasn’t spending enough time with my children. My insecurities meant I was always suffering from imposter syndrome – waiting for someone to tell me I’m on Beadle’s about (look it up). My fear of public speaking meant I worked myself up whenever I had to do a presentation or run a staff meeting – so I’d talk fast to get it out of the way.
After eventually working my way up to running the Cytology department, my career as an NHS manager ended. The work relocated and I decided not to go with it.
I felt…..lost. I’d recently suffered burnout and my anxiety had reached it’s peak. To help me overcome my issues, I sought out the help of a Hypnotherapist. The feeling of release was amazing!
Finding the life I love
So what could I do to use my values and motivation in a new way? After finding a life coach, I realised all the things I loved about my job revolved around helping people. In fact, I’d quite like to do what this bloke is doing, I thought….
I trained with The Coaching Academy to achieve my Life Coach Certification. My Hypnotherapist became my teacher – I wanted to share this amazing form of therapy with others. When I achieved my Hypnotherapy Diploma, I registered with the General Hypnotherapy Register and CNHC.
After years of being an overthinker and often feeling overwhelmed, I now help overthinkers to take control of their anxiety, get rid of unhealthy habits and face their fears. So they can have the freedom to live joyfully!
