Anxiety Mental Disorder – Portrait of a Troubled Woman.

Phobias cause so many different physical reactions which vary from person to person, some are mild or extremely intense. Some of the symptoms may be racing heartbeat, sweats, nausea, fainting, the feeling that the hairs on your arms or back are standing on end, some clients have literally reported passing out. They often describe their reaction to the fear as being “paralysed with fear” or “having butterflies in my stomach”, “just wanting to run away” from whatever is triggering the response. Many clients that I have treated with phobias often know their response is irrational, which makes it harder for them to accept. “Why am I reacting like this when I know it can’t hurt me?” is something I hear a lot from clients.

How can hypnotherapy help me to overcome these fears?

Here at Samantha Hypnotherapy I have treated so many of the above phobias. At the consultation I will ask you a series of questions relating to your phobia and suggest a treatment plan to help you to over come your fear or phobia. In my experience, some of the time the phobia is either a learnt behavior from someone close to you whilst growing up or it can come on quite quickly with no reason.  Often when chatting with clients there is an initial sensitizing event that will have occurred (this is the original memory responsible for causing the symptoms).  By calming the anxiety initially and giving you tools to be able to deal with the physical symptoms that are created when you face the phobia, is the basis as to where I would start.  I would then do various phobia releases with you during hypnosis together with a few sessions on having the confidence to face your fear.

How many sessions will I need?

Each person is different with the levels of anxiety they experience when facing their fear.  *Usually a phobia can be treated in between 4 and 6 sessions.

*“Sam’s treatment is phenomenal and has completely changed my life for the better. I had a phobia of a material for over 20 years. I first met Sam with a degree of skepticism from visiting other hypnotherapist’s that were expensive & did a poor job. From the outset Sam’s work really speaks for itself. She really took the time to understand me as a person and cover all angles. The sessions were fantastic and I could see differences after every session. It genuinely has impacted my whole life. The phobia is not only completely gone but I have grown in confidence, & optimism. I would recommend Sam’s Hypnotherapy to anyone & can’t give enough praise for what she has done for me, a big Thank You to Sam for literally changing my life for the better.” ~ AC Ashford*

*“Samantha is amazing! She helped me get over a phobia I never thought I could. I was sceptical but once I spoke to Sam I realised that hypnotherapy wasn’t really what I thought it was. I’m still amazed that it worked, but it did! She’s understanding, not judgemental and is really friendly and welcoming. I loved my sessions with her. I definitely recommend, she does free consultations so it’s 100% worth going to speak to her, you won’t regret it!” MP*

*”I was recommended Sam by a friend who had amazing results with her.  I can honestly say it was the best decision I made, as after 5 sessions I have noticed a huge improvement in my anxiety and specific phobia that I went to see Sam for help with.  The experience is actually really enjoyable as Sam makes you feel so relaxed and she is just a really friendly and approachable person, so I would not hesitate to recommend her.  Thanks for everything” ~ B*

*“My fear of flying was more than extreme! I would get myself in such a state, I would be sick, have sweaty palms and panic attacks weeks before flying. On some occasions I wouldn’t even make the flight. I decided enough was enough and contacted Samantha. She supported me, helped me to become strong and completely changed my mind set. I never would have believed I would fly ever again. But I did. Thank you does not seem enough.” K*

*Please note results may vary from person to person. Some clients may need more or less sessions than others.

You are visiting my website as you have decided that now is the right time in your life to seek positive change. Whether this is to help you overcome anxiety, depression or stress, be free of panic attacks, improve your confidence/self-esteem, eliminate habits, overcome phobias, stop smoking, control your anger or lose weight, I am here to help get you back on the right track to feeling like you again. I really understand that for some people just making this first step is so hard but rest assured once you meet me your mind will be put at ease.

Samantha Hypnotherapy is based at Lenham court, a magnificent Grade II* listed building, set within 18 acres of beautiful gardens and grounds.

I offer an initial consultation for just £30 for you to come along and explain what is troubling you. At this session I will ask you several questions about your problems, when/where they started/how long etc to enable me to get the best possible outcome for you from the treatment. By gathering as much information as I can, I will then outline a treatment plan giving you an idea of what I am planning to do at each session. Sometimes the treatment plan can change along the way as we make progress. Quite often once you start to feel better in one area, naturally all of the other areas fall in place.

Hypnotherapy Maidstone Hypnotherapist Lenham Court Kent

At the consultation I will give you an idea of how many sessions you are likely to need, explain how hypnotherapy works and how it is likely to make you feel. It is my aim to help you feel comfortable and at ease with me and to assure you that together we can seek the positive change that you are seeking. I will also answer any questions you may have.

It’s only natural that you may be feeling a little nervous or apprehensive about what to expect when we first meet for the consultation. With this in mind you are more than welcome to bring your partner or anyone you feel comfortable bringing. *I can assure you that once you have met me and shared your issue you will walk away feeling like a weight has been lifted and looking forward to starting treatment.

Hypnotherapy is such a relaxing experience, I often refer to it as a massage of the mind. To reflect this I have done my best to create an environment at my clinic that has a calming and relaxing feel to create that inner peace to compliment your therapy. At the end of each hypnotherapy session you are more than welcome to go into the room of relaxation, help yourself to a drink and relax before you carry on with your busy life.

If you haven’t experienced hypnosis before it’s only natural that you will have lots of questions which I can answer at the consultation. I promise I can’t make you dance like a chicken and certainly won’t wave a watch in your face.

I am so happy that I found Samantha Hypnotherapy. Not only is she lovely, Sam is calming, relaxing and understanding while maintaining a professional manner. After the initial consultation, I knew I was in safe hands and I am so happy that I did. I am actually enjoying my life instead of being worried all the time and wasting time on things that didn't matter. I absolutely recommend Samantha Hypnotherapy, I wish I had found her sooner.

I went into hypnotherapy with Sam not knowing whether it would do anything for me, after years of trying exposure therapy, EMDR etc without seeing any noticeable improvement with my emetophobia and other anxieties - But after 13 sessions I feel like a new person. I’m by no means miraculously ‘cured’ but I finally feel like I have back the control of my life that I lost a long time ago, which is helping my anxieties gradually fade. From the very first session I felt so at ease and understood, so if you’re looking at trying a new type of therapy or even specifically hypnotherapy I couldn’t recommend Sam enough!

Im a complete different person, she gave me the confidence to leave a job i wasn't happy in and go for another job which i got :) i barely suffer with anxiety now. I totally recommend this lady. I will miss my sessions and the beautiful surroundings. Thank you so much Samantha for giving me my life back.

I have recently seen Samantha for support to stop biting my nails. I have been a nail biter for approximately 18 years and felt as if I had tried everything. I contacted Samantha for hypnotherapy and she was incredibly responsive and supportive throughout the process. She explained what each session would entail, provided recordings for me to continue listening at home and did not pursue the therapy beyond needs. I have successfully stopped biting my nails and will be forever grateful! Highly recommended!

Through local recommendation and some Google research I found Sam, contacting her was easy and we had great communication from the start. I had my consultation where Sam put me at ease straight away, asked me some questions and I told her my anxiety story. From there we set up my sessions. I had 9 sessions with Sam in total on a weekly basis, all tailored to my personal needs. Each time I was put at ease, Sam is so down to Earth and friendly whilst also remaining so professional and has excellent covid measurements in place. When I met Sam I was in a very dark place mentally, I didn’t know where to turn. After each session I felt more and more calm, my anxiety started to ease and I became more confident and tackled my fears. I suffered from severe anxiety, panic, fear of being in a car, public transport journeys and also physical symptoms with my anxiety too. I can happily say after my sessions my life has changed and I’m no longer in that dark place. I go on car journeys now with no issues, days out with my girls, use public transport and I’ve even booked my driving lessons and test ready for October! There’s also many other small things I’ve achieved on top of that but there’s far too many to list. I’ve also found I’ve become more confident in myself, more relaxed and just so much happier in general. I’m so so so grateful to have come across Sam and that I started hypnotherapy because it’s changed my life for the better. ❤️ Thank you so much. x

I had a very good experience with Sam. I would highly recommend her as a hypnotherapist. She was also kind enough to help me with an additional request after I stopped seeing her.

Absolutely Amazing, I was very sceptical about having hypnotherapy for weight loss, but I have lost 3 stone in 3 months so far. Sam put me at ease, she was extremely easy to work with, and after 6 visits i have the recording of the sessions to reuse when and if I needed to at home. I do not understand it but I highly recommend it.

It took me a long time to build up the courage to try and help the anxiety I suffered from daily. I am so thankful to have met Samantha. Worrying and overthinking all the time is so exhausting but now going to bed with a clear and quiet mind is the best feeling. Thank you so much.
