Who am I and what do I offer?

Sharon Eastwood

How it all started.

Having always had a strong interest in alternative therapies, when I was introduced to hypnotherapy I knew I had found what I wanted to do and in 2005 qualified as a clinical hypnotherapist with the London College of Clinical Hypnosis.
A diploma – that important piece of paper was just the start though because of course, new learning is never over – regardless of age! It’s like the proverbial end of the rainbow! You never quite get there, but you can still maybe find that proverbial pot of gold anyway because there is always something new to learn and achieve, some new technique to develop that could help a future client, some new take on an aspect of that vast pool of hypnotherapeutic knowledge . And I sometimes think, if I lived to be 1,000 years old 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.

Just like all other good therapists I invest time, money and energy into continuing my 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 feel that, 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.

Voluntary work has played a big part in my life and has been a way to give something back to the community, but richly rewarding and fulfilling too. I am a Marie Curie Companion at Musgrove Park Hospital and in recent years was a CRUSE bereavement counsellor and a volunteer hypnotherapist with Anxiety UK. I’m proud to have been one of the founding committee members of Ovacome (a national charity for ovarian cancer) where I set up and managed a 24 / 7 national help-line and telephone support network for women diagnosed with ovarian cancer and their families. I was also a nursing assistant in St Catherine’s Hospice in West Sussex.

Our Promise to You

  • You are assured of a caring, non-judgmental and professional attitude and approach.
  • We view our work with you as a partnership, one in which we work together to seek and attain your best possible solution or outcome.
  • We work safely and abide by the Code of Ethics of the British Society of Clinical Hypnosis.
  • We maintain complete confidentiality. There can be exceptions to this, such as 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.
  • We work with integrity and honesty. We will not make false claims or promises about the treatment offered.
  • We will not accept you as a patient if we believe we am unable to help you. We may suggest more appropriate alternatives. In the event of this occurring, no charge will be made if the time spent in your initial consultation is less than 30 minutes in duration.

Always 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
decide on is adequately trained and qualified and is right for you.

What do we ask from you?

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



We believe there is a link between body and mind where illness, disease (dis-ease)and general health and well-being of the body is concerned. There is a relatively new area of science and research called Psychoneuroimmunology (or PNI for short!) which is of particular interest to us. It focuses on the link between mind and body and how the mind can produce a physical effect on the body, (positive or negative). It is a fascinating science and, with more and more information becoming available we continue to acknowledge how wonderful and powerful a healing entity the human mind and body can be.
