About Me

Samantha Culshaw-Robinson

I began my working life as an IT lecturer in the community for a college of further education.

It was the joy I felt when students progressed and took their learning to another level that motivated me, rather than a love of computers.

Often people felt alienated by education and left school with no qualifications. Once they had grasped the basics of IT, it meant that they could connect with their family of all ages and wherever they lived, and it opened up a whole new world for them.

After 15 years I decided to train to become a Registered Hypnotherapist accredited by the National Council of Hypnotherapy. This was because I was looking for ways to help a family member struggling with anxiety. During my research I discovered hypnotherapy.  It was a revelation!

About Samantha Culshaw-Robinson

I am the founder of Live Well Practice.  I believe that hypnotherapy can help you make whatever positive changes that you want in your life.  This is because it has been shown that the unconscious mind governs over 95% of our behaviour and 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.

I specialise in Stress & Anxiety and unhelpful and unhealthy behaviours that can occur as a result from these emotions so: Weight Loss, Rapid Pain Elimination (chronic physical and emotional) and 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.

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

I am a registered Hypnotherapist and one of Nottingham’s top three hypnotherapists. I have been successfully working with weight loss clients since 1987.

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

I see clients in a confidential setting online and at my lovely practice located just 3 miles from Nottingham City centre.

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.

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.
