A message to my customers
To all of my customers, past, current and future. In the interest of everyone, I have taken the decision to only work online. This can be conducted either via Zoom, Skype or FaceTime. I’ve been working in this way since I first started practicing as many clients are unable to travel, especially students at Universities or clients recommended who live far away. It works brilliantly and is a safe and confidential way of working.
I am able to offer some pro bono sessions, and am also offering a significant reduction to any Key and front line workers who, at this difficult time need all the support they can get.
Kind regards, Sue

BrainWorking Recursive Therapy® | Clinical Hypnotherapy | Therapy for Adults & Teenagers
As well as working with adults, I also work with Secondary school Age Children through to young adulthood. In my 20 years of working with adolescents I have found they respond really well to, and enjoy, both Hypnotherapy and Brain Working Recursive Therapy®.
I work with a variety of issues including anxiety, exam nerves/academic pressure, sports issues, trauma, bereavement, depression, phobias and many other issues.
BrainWorking Recursive Therapy® (BWRT®). Do you avoid therapy because you worry about disclosing private information or personal secrets? If so, then BWRT® may be the way forward for you.
Many symptoms are the result of a behaviour or thought pattern ‘firing up’ that has been activated before (in other words, the nerve cells in your brain being triggered into action – think a kind of domino effect). That pattern may have been suitable or effective at one time but the fact that it isn’t now is of no consequence to the non-reasoning part of your brain. If there is already a pattern associated with a stimulus (e.g. an object/place/event/situation), it is activated immediately before any conscious interference – in other words, there is a gap between the brain responding to a stimulus and you becoming aware that this stimulus is making you feel a particular way. Once those brain nerve cells are triggered into action it is very difficult to change that pattern. This answers why we sometimes do stuff that we don’t want to.
BWRT® has been described by many of my clients as an effective and refreshingly long lasting form of therapy. It works by creating a new neural pathway with a more resourceful behaviour/way of feeling. It does this by utilising the speed with which your nerve cells fire at (this is around 200mph!) and that gap between the brain responding and you becoming aware that you are reacting to a stimulus.
BWRT® works with personal problems, fears, anxieties, and many more issues. Clients have found that even severe difficulties that have lasted for years can melt away, and often in just a single session when working with a professionally registered BWRT practitioner. The therapy can even be carried out via the internet, so a lack of confidence, feelings of awkwardness or tight schedules need not be an obstacle to improving your life.
BWRT® Client Testimonials: Testimonials
Sue Learoyd-Smith is the Specialist Child Advisor for BWRT Therapists
Hypnotherapy is a complementary therapy which is becoming increasingly recognised as a valid form of treatment. Having experienced hypnotherapy myself which helped me overcome anxiety as well as stop a heavy smoking habit, I am so pleased that it is beginning to receive the credit it deserves as a valid and effective form of treatment for a wide range of issues. Not only is hypnotherapy excellent for confidence building, smoking cessation and pain relief, but it is also an effective form of treatment for issues such as anxiety, depression and, in fact, most issues of a primarily psychological nature.
As a member of the British Psychological Society, I am committed to the promotion of excellence and ethical practice, and ensure that my own knowledge in the field of hypnotherapy is up to date and current. I use a range of different techniques for the therapy aspect of hypnotherapy including counselling, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and Psychotherapy. I also recognise that hypnosis is not for everyone and am therefore able to offer the same therapeutic techniques without hypnosis if this is what the client prefers.
