About Sarah Stanley:
Hi, I’m Sarah, a hypnotherapist, and former nurse, based in Horley, Surrey. I love to help people overcome their problems and to see them leave my clinic ready to face a more positive future. I work with a range of clients who face many different issues, from stress and anxiety to weight problems, from lack of confidence to alcohol addiction.
About Solution Focused Hypnotherapy
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy techniques are very effective. You don’t have to relive past traumas or negative experiences, but instead you are guided towards a more positive outlook and a better future. I was very attracted to Solution Focused Hypnotherapy because of its emphasis on finding solutions.
Born in Ireland, I trained as a nurse in the UK and worked in hospitals in Ireland, the UK and the Middle East. I thoroughly enjoyed my professional nursing role, working with adults and children, and making a real difference to their health and wellbeing.
I discovered hypnotherapy when I was expecting my daughter. I began to practice self-hypnosis to help me through my pregnancy. The pregnancy was a positive journey for me, and my daughter’s birth was natural. I believe self-hypnosis helped to empower me as a mother. I have continued to practice self-hypnosis daily and benefit from this immensely.
I was so impressed with the results I achieved with self-hypnosis that I decided to explore hypnotherapy as a career. I studied at The Clifton Practice in Bristol (Guildford satellite school) and was awarded a Diploma in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (DFSH).The Clifton Practice is the leading Hypnotherapy/Psychotherapy school specialising in Solution Focused techniques.
I also hold the Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma (HPD). The HPD is regarded as the ‘Gold Standard’ for professional hypnotherapists.
Seeing The Results For My Clients
I see the amazing impact of Solution Focused Hypnotherapy in my work every day. Clients who give up smoking, clients who are able to drive again, having lost their confidence, clients who felt they couldn’t cope with their lives, but now they can. The list goes on. You can read more of my clients’ experiences in the sidebar on the right and on my Home page.
I believe that my training and experience as a nurse enables me to empathise fully with my clients, and that it gives me a unique perspective as a hypnotherapist.
