‚ÄúMy passion is helping people to shift any unwanted emotions, physical problems and limiting beliefs that they may hold, so that they can feel free.‚ÄĚ

I am an EFT Master Practitioner and Trainer. Member of The AMT and the AAMET organisation. I have a practice at Harley Street, London and on the South Coast in Hastings. I also offer Skype and telephone sessions so that distance is no barrier.
I am a trained therapist with a BA Hons in Psychology and a Post Graduate in Psychoanalytical Observation from the Tavistock Centre, North London.

By combining the skills and qualifications I have gained over my years working as a therapist and an intuitive, I have developed a unique and successful practice helping both adults and children individually and in groups.

Having appeared on ITV Lorraine Kellys breakfast show and articles have been written about me in Woman Magazine and Daily Mail as well as local newspapers. I have become well known in my field.

I speak at conferences and talk about my research to enhance our understanding of who we are.

I can help you find your power again whether it has been lost through illness or through emotions. I will help you to heal your emotions and therefore your mind and body. By releasing this fear, we allow more freedom and space to enjoy our life to the full.

Emotional Freedom Technique is not like counselling and therefore Susan does not need to know anything if you don’t want to discuss it. The sessions are completely confidential.

Susan specialises in Post- Traumatic Stress including birth trauma and how our first emotional experiences can lead us to have our perceptions about the world we live in. She also however, can work with you around creating more success in your life or business. You may want to give up smoking or an addiction to food or even create your perfect size.

Susan works with serious illness such as Cancer and the trauma concerned with receiving the news of such an illness. It is not a cure, it is creating a place of empowerment and therefore healing. Susan works with skin conditions knowing that they arise from fear of loss and separation.

Susan uses her unique ability to connect with your higher consciousness and exactly what you need to heal. She uses all her techniques to facilitate that.

I worked for The Independent Training Company for 6 years, who provide fast track fully accredited private courses in beauty therapy levels 2 and 3.

I opened the Smooth Operator IPL laser hair removal Clinic after having had the treatment myself. I was so impressed with the results I could not get the training booked quite soon enough in order to open the clinic.  I have reduced from daily shaving to 5/6 times a year Рreally.

Without sounding too dramatic, it has changed my life!

I believe that you treat people the way you would want to be treated, the aim is to offer client’s treatments that will make them feel better about themselves. Increase their self-confidence, and make them feel better about themselves.

The clinic offers a warm, friendly, but private and understanding approach to hair reduction.

I only work in clean and reputable salons. This has meant that our growth has been mostly through personal recommendation.

I have chosen to work with the best technology, and to be trained by the best, allowing me to provide a unique personal service of the very highest standard.

Alistair was working as a Driving Instructor, in 1988. And in 1992 he decided that he could help his pupils more, giving them a much greater chance of that Learner Drivers dream the First Time Pass. They al ready had the knowledge to pass their test, but the one thing that seemed to hinder that acheivement was all down to a little thing called Exam/Test Nerves. Not being able to relax enough to show the examiners that they could be a great safe driver.

So in 1992 Alistair started to be trained as a Hypnotherapist, so he could give his pupils the confidence they needed to obtain the ‘First Time Pass’. Alistair’s Pass rate soared, and of course the knock on effect was he had a lot more people wanting him to teach them to drive. But people were also asking him about other things that he could help them with using hypnosis. And here started a journey into another line of work.

Alistair trained at The British Academy of Hypnosis, where he became a Master of Hypnosis. Since qualifying he has used it for a numberous ammount of things, he loves the thought that his words can change someones outlook on life, their Habits and choices. He also uses Hypnosis for Comedy Performances around the UK, he has also performed in some parts of Europe. Some people think using Hypnosis for entertainment is wrong, but Alistair beleives that it shows a much greater number of the general public just how powerful their minds can be to affect a change in their lifes. It also goes a long way to show douters of Hypnosis, that it is real and not just a party trick. Thats how and why your own mind can and does help you to effect the change in your life you thought way out of your reach. Because you don’t have the willpower or the time to give that change for a better life.
Alistair stopped teaching people to drive nearly 7 years ago, and has since given more time to helping, entertaining, changing peoples lives.

He now spends his days working with the general public, and looking for other ways he can make a difference. So whether you have a fear or a phobia, he can help you. If you have a habit you want help with, smoking, weight loss or any other addiction, he can help. Or if you want to just be better at something, he can help.
Alistair has recently helped children with Autism, Sports People perform better, People taking or doing exams acheive more.
So if you have a problem in your life, why not talk to Alistair first, you never know if you or your body needs help, he could be able to help you. Your Mind Guides your body and soul, let Alistair help you to guide your mind.
