About Sam

My qualifications

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

My qualifications include:

  • NHS trained Mindfulness (MBCT) coach
  • MSc in Workplace Health and Wellbeing at the University of Nottingham
  • Registered with the Complementary and National Healthcare Council (recognised by the NHS)
  • Corporate programme development and delivery
  • Excellent reviews and feedback
  • Rated one of the top 3 hypnotherapists in Nottingham

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 am Samantha, the founder of Live Well Practice and Work Well Practice.

My first career was an IT lecturer – my motivation was the joy I felt when students progressed, learned and were able to connect with their family and the wider world.

I discovered hypnotherapy whilst looking for ways to help a family member. It was a revelation! Not long after I trained, registered and gained accreditation from the National Council of Hypnotherapy.

Since then I have been involved in hypnotherapy, mindfulness and healing in a variety of contexts. I work with private individuals here at Live Well Practice. I also work with companies and organisations at my sister company Work Well Practice.

My specialities

I specialist in using a combination of hypnosis and mindfulness to help with issues such as:

  • Weight loss
  • Quitting smoking
  • Improving sleep
  • Stress and anxiety
  • Exam anxiety and performance
  • Pain relief and Rapid Pain Elimination
  • Phobias (e.g. fear of needles)

I have specialised in online hypnotherapy for a number of years.

My aims and goals

As a client, your physical, emotional and spiritual well-being is my priority.

I seek to help you free yourself from unhelpful patterns and habits that have been holding you back. To this end I offer online sessions and in-person sessions at my lovely practice located just 3 miles from Nottingham City Centre.

I have found a combination of hypnotherapy and mindfulness to be the most gentle, efficient and safe way to effect lasting change. And it needn’t break the bank.  In my experience, lasting change can be achieved in just a few sessions (anywhere from a single session to a short programme of 6 sessions, depending on your requirements).

Want to chat?

I offer free no-obligation consultations via phone or over Zoom.

    My clients

    I have successfully worked with a wide range of clients over the years. They have come from all walks of life and had goals of all kinds.

    You will find videos and testimonials on my Success Stories page.

    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.
