Hypnotherapist - Sue Thackeray 


Sue is a hypnotherapist who loves that hypnotherapy is so empowering for the individual. She trained as a hypnotherapist with the Hampshire School of Hypnotherapy, is registered with the General Hypnotherapy Register and is fully insured. She has witnessed some amazing hypnotherapy triumphs including a 50 year old fear of dogs gone over a couple of sessions, a snacking habit vanquished, IBS got under control and her own fear, that if she let herself start crying she would never stop, traced back to it’s roots, understood and put aside.


Sue can’t guarantee that it always works, but she has found that when clients are committed and open, together they can often achieve great results and believes if you want it to succeed, it almost certainly will! Sue is a great believer in the need to show ourselves the love, respect and friendship that we routinely give to others.
