I’m Sandy Robson, a fully qualified hypnotherapist, NLP and journey practitioner specialising in weight loss, trauma and self-esteem.
I once read something written by Bruce Lipton in his book, The Biology of Belief, which struck quite a chord with me. He wrote that we live 95% of our lives led by the beliefs of the subconscious mind, and that 70% of those beliefs are negative. The key, he said, to changing our lives is in reprogramming the subconscious. I think that’s quite a powerful and inspiring thought.
My own journey in hypnotherapy began at the Contemporary College of Therapeutic Studies and the Erickson Hypnosis School, London, where I trained. Since graduating, I’ve also become a practitioner of Havening, a therapeutic touch technique developed by two neuroscientists which works to permanently remove the negative effects of trauma from our psyche and our body.
For more than six years I’ve worked with clients on a vast range of issues and I’m particularly passionate about uncovering and releasing negative, disempowering beliefs that, in turn, create challenges and adverse life circumstances.
Trauma and challenging life experiences can often continue to have painful resonance many years after their occurrence and I chose to make this one of my specialist areas. The work I’ve done with people particularly affected by low self-esteem issues as a result of trauma is based on a passionate belief that we all have the innate power to direct the course of our lives; a vast reservoir of resources within the subconscious that can be utilised for our benefit and ultimate freedom.
Together with my hypnotherapy and Havening training, I’ve also studied Inner Child Therapy and this mix of knowledge and expertise provides me with a varied and flexible range of therapies to use and adapt to my many clients.
I’m also the resident weight loss expert, specialising in the Virtual Gastric Band which is a remarkable weight loss programme which uses the power of hypnosis to retrain you to be satiated by smaller amounts of food.
I fundamentally believe in broadening my portfolio of techniques so my clients always get the very best solutions to their challenges and problems. In fact, all my current clients are referrals from positive word-of-mouth – the best recommendation there is!
