Hello and thank you for visiting my website.
My name is Sophie and I am a Solution Focused Hypnotherapist. I trained with the prestigious Clifton Practice in Bristol and have experience in helping adults and teenagers with their mental health. Having had hypnotherapy myself for childbirth and for health anxiety, I know first hand what a great tool it is for helping get the real you back.
In August 2020, I became a mum and it changed my life. I knew that I wanted to make some changes within my career so that I could help people to enjoy the here and now with their families instead of feeling as though they are stuck in the past or engulfed in worrying about the future.
Over the last 10 years, I have been working as a drama and music teacher and found this hugely rewarding. I loved working with young people to improve their confidence and performance skills. My favourite part of teaching was supporting students to be the best version of themselves be it within my subject area or socially. Having seen the mental health crisis that is all around us – including in schools, I made the leap. Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is a wonderful and simple way of focusing on the positive things in life, allowing yourself to think about how you want things to be and taking the smallest of steps to make a biggest difference.
I want my son to grow up to be unapologetically himself and go forth into the world feeling calm and confident in the knowledge that he can achieve anything he sets his mind to. I know that while he is little, this is something that is largely my responsibility but I also know that I need to show him that he has the tools to overcome any challenges that may come his way.
It is also important that we find the time to love ourselves and take the necessary steps to help us enjoy life and the moments in front of us. I am passionate about empowering people to reignite their spark so that they can start the rest of their lives today.
