About Susannah Saunders

Who am I? Well I am a hypnotherapist, a writer, a trainer, a teacher, a mother, a dancer, a vegan, an animal lover, an interior designer and much much more.

A key part of my life is focused on helping people, professionally and personally. Across a variety of sectors, working with many different demographics, I have gained a vital insight into bringing about positive change.

I am passionate about delivering new and innovative ways to help people to help themselves. Change should be continual and ever evolving, which is why I never rely on one way of doing things. I continue to educate myself, expand my repertoire and develop new methods of working with my clients. 

I began my therapy journey with a BSc. degree in Psychology, followed by two years working as an assistant Clinical Psychologist within the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) in the NHS. Like all people, my patients responded differently to the variety of psychological techniques offered, but the one technique that had the most profound affect with all of my clients was teaching self hypnosis. It was at that point that my curiosity about hypnotherapy grew.

About Susannah Saunders hypnotherapist

My initial hypnosis training back in 2003 was in curative hypnotherapy; an approach that seeks to identify and then correct the root cause of a problem. The results were impressive, but it did not work with everyone and some found the process challenging and did not want to dwell on past experiences. The limitations of this technique led me further in my exploration of what else hypnosis could achieve, and I went on to train in solution focused hypnotherapy, Eriksonian hypnotherapy, cognitive behavioural hypnotherapy, clinical hypnotherapy, Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT or tapping), NLP, coaching and EMDR amongst many others. I bring a wealth of experience, knowledge and intuition to my sessions.

When we work together I’ll be asking you some questions to get to know you, but rather than focusing on the journey that has led you to where you are now, we will direct your mind to where you want to be tomorrow, a month, a year, ten years from now. There is huge power in focusing on the goal rather than the problem.

It’s really very simple: set your intention, expect change and let your unconscious deliver the results.

What Our Clients Say...

“I’ve finally found an end to my dependency on food. Your weight loss hypnotherapy has changed my life. I could cry! Thank you for all your help, Susannah”

Fatima Akhtar

“I had tried hypnosis before and whilst it helped, the humming in my ears started creeping back. Susannah really took time to listen to me and she understood how apprehensive and sceptical I was. But she gently guided me though the sessions and  as I began to notice the changes I was able to relax more deeply. I haven’t had an episode now for months which I’m staggered by. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the hypnotherapy or Susannah.”

Sue Schiavelli (London)

“The annoying whistling in my head has finally gone. I can finally get on and study in peace. I shall be forever grateful and I can’t recommend Susannah enough.”

Paddy A (London)

“I went to Susannah after a humiliating experience left me so fearful that I stopped going out. After 7 sessions I no longer worried about making a fool of myself and the blushing and extreme sweating disappeared. I can’t tell you how this has changed my life for the better.”

Gary B

“My social phobia is no more. Susannah has helped me overcome the dread I felt at parties and social gatherings. Finally I feel normal. I highly recommend.”

Anoushka Deepres

“I found Susannah to be caring and approachable. I was nervous about the hypnosis but I needn’t have been. She completely put me at ease and I thoroughly enjoyed the relaxation. My blushing has gone and I no longer shy away from public speaking”.

Erica Fisher

“The hypnosis helped me address misconceptions my subconscious had made. It’s helped me become more in control of my words so I no longer fear stuttering or forget what I want to say. Thank you for helping me get back in control.”

Russell Langdon

“Going for hypnotherapy was the best decision I could have made. All the apprehension and worry leading up to an event has disappeared and I now look forward to presenting. I always knew I was capable, and now I feel it. Wish I’d done this years ago.”

Jin Yang

“My sessions with Susannah have completely changed my outlook. I no longer dread meetings or being asked to present to my peers. My confidence has grown so much and I look forward to seeing how far I can progress at work.”

Claudette N

“I got the promotion Susannah and it’s all credit to the hypnotherapy. Thank you for helping me. I feel hopeful for the future.”

Belinda Buchanan

“Susannah was so understanding of my symptoms and I found her approach made a lot of sense. I didn’t think I could be hypnotised and yet apparently I can. Needless to say it’s the best thing I’ve done. The migraines have stopped and I couldn’t be happier!”

Vic Morris

“I’m amazed and oh so happy. I was really struggling with my migraines at work and yet since the hypnotherapy I’ve not had any attacks. I can’t quite believe it. Just amazing!”

Anita Letts-Marshall

“I wish I’d done this years ago. The daily bouts of bloating and constipation have subsided and I’m slowly reintroducing foods I’d denied myself. I can’t tell you the relief I feel, both physically and emotionally. Susannah really understood my problem and I felt listened to. I cannot recommend her enough.”

Ivo Purnell

“My anxiety and worry was stopping me from sleeping and I was fed up with taking pills. To be honest, I felt like hypnosis was a bit of a last resort and I wasn’t convinced it would work. But I was struggling to balance work with looking after my son. It has been amazing! I sleep better than I ever have and I have so much more energy left when I get home from work. The best thing is that the anxiety has ceased. Thoroughly recommend Susannah and the curative hypnotherapy”.

Charlie W

“I booked some sessions with Susannah for my 11 year old daughter. We’d seen specialists, psychologists and even another hypnotherapist but nothing had helped. The curative approach made sense and my daughter always looked forward to the sessions. The change in her has been remarkable. She no longer pulls at her hair and she’s also stopped picking the skin by her nails. I’m delighted at the results.”

Mrs Pinsent

“The hypnotherapy has been marvellous. I hadn’t flown for eight years because of my god awful anxiety but now I’m jetting off all over the place. What a wonderful experience. Huge thanks, Susannah.”

Penny Falla

“I fly for work and despite making regular trips abroad, my fear of flying got worse not better. I was intrigued by the idea of getting to the cause of my fears and since the treatment I can fly with ease. Finally I can enjoy reading a book on a flight!”

Marion J

“I had been muddling through life for long enough. Susannah helped me to change my perspective so I didn’t feel so scared of life anymore. This has been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I can’t recommend the therapy enough”.

Ash Picher-Troman

“I went to see Susannah with a 26 year habit and I left her session feeling relaxed and confident that I was never going to touch the dreaded weed again. It’s been seven years and I couldn’t be more over it. Pleased is an understatement.”

Gary Snape

“I was looking for a London hypnotherapist and was frankly confused by the choice on Google. When I spoke to Susannah on the phone I liked her voice and felt relaxed by her manner. I found the hypnotherapy to be very calming and an enjoyable experience. My mind seems quieter now, less cluttered with negative thoughts. And when something goes wrong at work I no longer feel taken over by the panic. It’s been very positive.”

Ellen Keating (London)

“I went to see Susannah after a decade of anxiety was wiping out my quality of life. She really got how low I was and she listened. Most importantly, the hypnosis worked. The despair and darkness has gone and I feel wonderfully normal. I’m taking each day as it comes but so far so good. I would wholeheartedly recommend her.”

Naresh R. (London)

“I’ve quit the weed and the booze and so far so good. I found Susannah to be warm and non-judgemental and I would highly recommend.”

Patrick Vassallo

“Thank you Susannah for everything you have done to help me. I thought I’d be a tough case as I was in full on self destruct mode when I came to see you. Things are going so well. I’m working again and I have a new relationship. I couldn’t be more grateful.”

Graham M

“It’s been four months and my skin has never been this good. I’ve stopped using Roaccutane and gobsmacked that the spots haven’t returned. I keep prodding my skin to see if I can feel any potential eruptions, haha! But so far so good. I can’t quite believe it”.

Jeremy C

“I went to see Susannah after my friend had success in stopping smoking with her. I was unsure how hypnosis could help with my acne but it totally did. The painful cysts on my chin have stopped appearing, and my old scars now have a chance of healing. It’s the first in a long line of treatments that’s actually given me confidence that I can be acne free.”

 

Cassie McFarlane

“It feels bloody brilliant to be a non-smoker and I don’t even miss the cigarettes. I’ve recommended you to everyone I know.”

James Reyes

“I passed my test ten days after the hypnotherapy. It worked! Thank you for everything.”

Anita Asfar-Hogan

“I shall be forever bewildered by the effectiveness of the hypnotherapy. I remained sceptical until my very last session. The “weight” that lifted was both physical and emotional and continues to benefit me three years on.”
