About Sam

Who Am I?

I am Samantha, the founder of Live Well Practice.

My working life began as an IT lecturer. My motivation then was the joy I felt when students progressed and took their learning to another level. Many left school without qualifications and IT helped them connect to their family and the wider world.

After doing this for 15 years I discovered hypnotherapy whilst looking for ways to help a family member. It was a revelation!

Not long after I trained to become a Registered Hypnotherapist accredited by the National Council of Hypnotherapy.

My Specialties

I specialise in treatment of stress and anxiety and behaviours that can occur as a result from these emotions, including:

  • Weight Loss
  • Rapid Pain Elimination (chronic physical and emotional)
  • Stopping Smoking

I have appeared on Notts TV and been interviewed on several podcasts. I also host a regular online Mindfulness, Resilience and Chat group.

My Experience

I have over 10 years’ experience as a registered hypnotherapist and  have been successfully working with weight loss clients since 1987.

I have been rated as one of Nottingham’s top 3 hypnotherapists.

I am an NHS trained Mindfulness (MBCT) coach and run courses and workshops in the corporate world and have gained an MSc in Workplace Health and Wellbeing at the University of Nottingham.

I am also registered with the Complementary and National Healthcare Council, the official body recognised by the NHS.

I have appeared on Notts TV and been interviewed on several podcasts. I also host a regular online Mindfulness, Resilience and Chat group.

How Hypnotherapy Can Help

I believe that hypnotherapy can help you make whatever positive changes that you want in your life.

It has been shown that the unconscious mind governs over 95% of our behaviour.

Whilst in the altered state of hypnosis, we can connect with the unconscious mind and update it with what we want from our lives now.

Why Choose Me?

I offer professional, confidential, fully insured and friendly sessions with over 10 years’ experience.

My goal is to help my clients free themselves from unhelpful patterns and habits that have been holding them back.  Hypnotherapy is a gentle and safe way to do this.

Clients are always in control and I usually see clients for 4-8 sessions.

I offer confidential online sessions and accept clients and at my lovely practice located just 3 miles from Nottingham City centre.

Who Have I Worked With?

I have successfully worked with a wide range of clients over the years. Have a look here to see what they say…

I was a little nervous at receiving hypnotherapy but I can honestly say Sam put me at ease straight away. She came over as a very sensitive and caring person. She was genuinely interested in how I was feeling and ensured I got the very best out of every session. I would most certainly visit her again should the need arise. Thanx Sam. Xxx

Sam is great at what she does. I was not sure what to expect at first, but Sam made me feel comfortable and at ease straight away. After one session I am on my way to success thanks to Sam. I would and have recommended to friends. X

My name is Ken, I’m 67 years old and I’m a non smoker. I couldn’t have said that two weeks ago but after two sessions with Samantha I no longer feel the urge to smoke and after fifty years of smoking that is a mighty statement. I expected to be climbing the walls and shouting at everybody but it just hasn’t happened. Hopefully I can do it on my own now but I know if I start to weaken I can get in touch with Samantha and get some help.
