Who am I and what do I offer?

Sharon Eastwood

I am a registered member of the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council and of the British Society of Clinical Hypnosis. I have a recent (enhanced) Criminal Records Bureau check (2015). Just like all other good therapists I invest commitment, time, money and energy into my continuing professional development (CPD) which increases, enhances and advances my knowledge and skills. My hypnotherapy work sometimes includes NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming), Mindfulness and CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) techniques where I think it is helpful but aside from this I think, as hypnotherapists, we should concentrate our efforts into becoming better at what we do. And so continues my quest to advance and maintain the highest standards within my chosen field.
I offer my clients affordable treatment without any compromise to quality or integrity.
My training with the London College of Clinical Hypnosis resulting in my hypnotherapy diploma back in 2005 was just the start of the journey because to me, the quest for new learning is never over, regardless of age! It’s like the proverbial end of the rainbow! You never quite get there, but what a pot of gold is be found anyway because there is always something new to learn and achieve, some new technique to develop that might help my clients, some new take on an aspect of that vast pool of hypnotherapeutic knowledge . And I sometimes think, even if I lived to be 1,000 years old or more, I would never exhaust the potential for all the new learning that this subject offers. I would never know everything it might be possible to know.

Here is my Promise to You

  • You are assured of a caring, non-judgmental and professional attitude and approach.
  • I view my work with you as a partnership, one in which we work together to seek and attain the best possible solution or outcome.
  • I use my knowledge, experience and skills as a hypnotherapist to help you achieve the best possible outcome for the issue(s) or condition(s) you present with.
  • I believe hypnotherapy offers natural healing using hypnosis to access the innate power of mind. This is where deeply beneficial, effective, life-enhancing and positive changes can be made.
  • I work safely and abide by the Code of Ethics of the British Society of Clinical Hypnosis.
  • I maintain confidentiality. (There can be exceptions to this, eg. needing to contact your doctor or other health care professionals, but this is not done without your informed written consent. Another exception is where my silence could result in harm to you or others).
  • I work with integrity and honesty. I will not make false claims or promises about the treatment offered.
  • I will not accept you as a patient if I believe I am unable to help you. I may instead suggest more appropriate alternatives.

And what do I ask of you?

The work we complete together will require your commitment, cooperation and motivation because it is not a totally effortless process, (sorry about that!).

BUT REMEMBER TOO … ….. ….. the rewards of making worthwhile, positive and lasting changes can be great and life-enriching.

I would always advise you to check the credentials and training institute of your prospective hypnotherapist. There are many of us to choose from these days so it is important that whoever you choose is adequately trained and qualified and is right for you. Hypnotherapy is currently unregulated which can mean someone attends a short weekend course and is a hypnotherapist on Monday morning! Frightening but true!

Voluntary work

is a great way to give something back to the community. It has played a big part in my life and has been richly rewarding and fulfilling. I am a trained Marie Curie Companion at Musgrove Park Hospital in Taunton. The Companions are volunteers who spend time with patients at the end of their lives and give emotional support to patients and their families when needed. It is an absolute privilege to share such times with them. Thanks to the original efforts of Musgrove Cardiology consultant Tom MacConnell this is an important pilot project and it is hoped that it will be rolled out to other hospitals in the near future. If you are interested in finding out more about this project or in becoming a Companion yourself then check out the Marie Curie website: https://www.mariecurie.org.uk/professionals/commissioning-our-services/partnerships-innovations/current/marie-curie-companions

My other volunteer roles across the years have been as a CRUSE bereavement counsellor; a hypnotherapist with Anxiety UK; a member of the founding committee of Ovacome (a national ovarian cancer charity); and a nursing assistant for St Catherine’s Hospice in West Sussex.
