Career Coaching & Cognitive Hypnotherapy in Manchester
A fulfilling work life is waiting for you. I'm here to help you get you in flow, deeply satisfied and lit up by what you do.
How would it feel to forge your own path
To a working day that feels calm and confident. Doing work that feels like you. Using your unique voice and making a bigger impact.
It sounds so good, doesn’t it? Except you’re a human being and so you’ve found yourself caught up in:
- Cycles of anxiety and fatigue.
- Imposter syndrome.
- Confusion about changes you want to make.
- The voice in your head that says you’re not good enough or you shouldn’t bother.
- Fears about what other people think.
You’re grateful for everything you’ve achieved so far and yet you’re feeling dissatisfied. Normally you’re an expert on keeping handle on things, yet you’ve got an increasing niggle that you’re limiting your potential and you don’t want life to pass you by.
It might come as a relief to know you’re not alone. Almost every client I’ve ever worked with has grappled with the same struggles.
A symptom of something deeper
All the feelings and beliefs that are keeping you stuck are driven your unconscious mind, which is responsible for 90% of how we think, feel and behave.
Your unconscious mind is always working for you to be safe and protected. It errs on the side of caution and sometimes interprets the threat of uncertainty or rejection just as if you were about to be pounced on by a lion.
That’s why all my bespoke 1-1 programmes focus on the inner work needed for you to have the self-belief, vision and clarity you need to love what you do.
Your work-life transformation awaits
What if I told you that you can transform the way you think? That you can unlock so much more joy and fulfilment from the work you do?
You can let go of that critical, doubting voice inside your head once and for all and instead:
- radiate confidence and natural self-assurance,
- have the courage to apply for that promotion, start that new business or explore a new direction
- make time for the things and the people in your life that really matter,
- make decisions from a place of calm and self-trust,
- express yourself freely and create your own opportunities (no more holding back for other people!).
Since leaving the law to become a QCH therapist and coach, I’ve helped hundreds of people let go of the fears and beliefs that keep them stuck.
Sessions are 1 hour and take place online or in person to give you maximum flexibility. You’ll also receive support and resources in between sessions to keep you inspired and on track.
By the end of our time together you’ll:
- Gain clarity on what you want and what you need to make it happen.
- Feel calmer and more in control so you can shape your day with more ease, regardless of what is going on around you.
- Feel empowered, as you gain a toolkit of techniques to gain more self-belief whenever you need
- Find it easier to say “no” and let go of what other people think.
- Take concrete action towards the changes you want to make and have the confidence to keep going beyond our time together.
- Feel more comfortable in your own skin, freer to express yourself and make a greater impact in whatever you’re doing.
Above all, you’ll learn to trust yourself. Instead of being pulled in multiple directions you’ll be guided by your own internal compass on a path that is uniquely yours.
“I worked with Sally over a three month period and in that time made hugely positive steps day-to-day. Before, I was experiencing periods of doubt about my career and knew I wanted a change, but didn’t have the confidence to take it any further. Since working with Sally, I am much more self-confident and focused, allowing me to work on my next steps. The visualisation techniques that Sally taught me work extremely well; I no longer become overwhelmed by decisions – if I feel old emotions creeping up, I can use these techniques to curb them almost immediately. They are a fantastic tool that genuinely make me feel more in control. Sally herself is friendly and open – I really believed that she wanted the best for me and I knew she would be available if I needed to discuss something. If you’re looking to make a change in your life, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Sally – you won’t regret it!”

“When I first came to Sally I was suffering from burnout, I was constantly negative and overwhelmed by simple tasks and my productivity was at an all time low. Through the course of my time with Sally her advice and techniques helped me control the negativity and get passed the effects of burnout and depression. The biggest benefit I gained out of the sessions is that I now have a clarity and positivity about my work, life and future that I did not think possible just a few months ago it really has made a huge difference and I can highly recommend Sally.”
“Sally coached me for a 3 month period and she made a tremendous impact to my life. Her coaching enabled me to look within myself and realise that I had more power and control over my life goals and direction than I had previously thought. Over the course of 12 weeks Sally helped me worked through all my limiting beliefs and find my authentic self by applying tools and techniques that would enable me to heal and realise that anything is possible if you put your mind to it and belief in yourself. If you are stuck in a rut or just want some coaching to overcome day to day challenges in your life then I would highly recommend Sally as she is a lightworker and can’t wait to work with her again in the future”

“Last year I found stress really hit me and I was starting to burn out …although everything was essentially going well the juggling of multiple challenging situations started to build and I really missed the warning signs and my health started to be impacted and then anxiety and panic started to take hold. I cannot rate Sally highly enough – Sally has such a genuine and honest approach and always knew just the right question to ask and the right follow up to send which really helped get us to the route of the challenges and I truly feel after my time with Sally that for the first time a weight has been lifted. I’ve really been able to build back up my confidence and clarity which has led to so many positive changes in my life – from re-assessing what is truly important to me to setting much better boundaries which has provided me with much more space to re-connect with hobbies and activities and other things in my life that I was putting off for ‘the right time’. I look forward to continuing to work with Sally again in the future as needed as I now see this time as invaluable to my overall wellbeing.”
“ I am so pleased I invested my time into working with Sally. I was feeling particularly stuck, with no particular direction and feeling fearful of making the wrong decisions. I have been able to work through those thoughts and feelings, with Sally’s support, and in a relatively short period. Not only has this enabled me to move forward confidently, but I’ve also been able to recognise, and embrace opportunities that come my way. This has opened up a new world for me, I feel free and not so apprehensive of the future. ”
“Upon completion of my sessions with Sally, I feel that a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders. I feel overall happier with my life and myself but I also have the tools I need to bring myself up on the bad days. The work Sally and I completed felt nothing short of a miracle and I personally felt a difference after the first session.”
“Working with Sally has been hugely empowering and liberating. I wanted to feel more in control of the decisions i was making and to enjoy my work again rather than feel drained, trapped or resenting it. I physically can feel the difference – it makes me feel lighter and i feel much more involved in choices that i am making. I continue to work with Sally and consistently feel this same lightness and energy from our time together. I cannot recommend Sally and the techniques that she uses highly enough. She is professional, focused and empowering. This is a therapy style that is highly effective and with the results being felt almost immediately. Sally will support and guide you through this. I cannot thank Sally enough for her hardwork and support with me.”
“When I first met Sally I couldn’t see or think straight. It was like my glasses had steamed up and I was weighed down by a lot of heavy shopping bags full of muddled thoughts and feelings. I was confused. Lost. Unhappy. Sally made me feel safe and supported. She’s smart and decisive and confidently guided me (over many months) through the fog and self imposed mire. Her approach is refreshing and varied and it feels very personal to your own needs. She’s all the things you’d want from someone who’s going to make you feel better – warm, welcoming, professional and clever. A safe pair of hands. Seeing Sally was worth every penny…getting greater clarity in my life is worth spending time and money on. She helped me see things more clearly and gave me a kit box full of great things to help me live and think my life better.”
“My Clarity and Confidence Call with Sally helped me to reflect on what was really important to me at this stage in my life and career. After our chat I felt much clearer on which path I should take and I have since embarked on a career change that I’m really enjoying and that will open up further opportunities to me in the future. I have a much better work life balance and no longer have that Sunday blues feeling! Thank you Sally!”
“From my first clarity call to the extra session I requested, I had a good feeling about our journey. And I was not dissapointed. SHE GOT ME! Her congruence and authenticity allowed me to safely explore myself and past perceptions and help allow me to overcome some of my fears and anxiety. Like some of the other reviews I was new to hypnotherapy, but it works so well and from the first session I was exhausted only because I had let go some of my 'baggage'. If you are unsure about this investment, just take the risk. How can you put a price on your self development and well being!”
“Having previously tried other therapies I knew that low-self esteem was at the root of my problems and had been for many years. I found that I was quite miserable, lonely, and just going though the motions day after day. What I didn't know however, was how to turn off the auto-pilot that had held me back and kept me from participating and instead begin showing the real me and start engaging with life. That is when I sought out cognitive hypnotherapy. The second session with Sally really tackled the root of my low self-esteem, and in the following days and weeks I noticed the changes. What is more, these results are here to stay. My last session with Sally was well over 18 months ago, and yet there are still times when I find myself thinking, feeling or doing things that I know were only made possible by my cognitive hypnotherapy sessions with Sally. Doors are opening, and I also feel better equipped to handle life’s bumps in the road. I am now feeling not just positive but enthusiastic about my future. For the first time, I see that I am consistently starting from a point of "I am enough." I am able to go about life less self-consciously, and therefore with fewer constraints and limitations. I honestly feel as if I’ve got my life back, and my sessions with Sally were the catalyst.”
“What I love the most about Sally’s sessions is that I always leave with a smile on my face. Sally is such a warm person, and her sessions are light hearted and playful. With Sally’s support, my perspective of life & my relationship with myself and others has changed drastically . She has helped me relax into life, and view the ups and downs as part of life’s adventure. I’m really looking forward to returning for further sessions. Thank you Sally.”
“My cognitive hypnotherapy sessions with Sally have changed my life. I’ve dealt with anxiety for some time and when somebody recommended hypnotherapy to me I initially had my reservations. However from the first time I met Sally I felt at ease with her. Over the course of the last three months Sally has given me a safe space to express my anxious feelings. During our sessions she has introduced me to countless techniques to combat my anxiety and limiting beliefs, talking me through them and helping me to implement them in my everyday life. Sally has also enabled me to acquire new insights that have changed the way I think and feel for the better, making me feel more confident and empowered to make positive changes in my life. Sally has helped me realise how integral vulnerability and authenticity are to living a wholehearted life. Following my first meeting with Sally, all of our substantial sessions have been via Zoom video chat which I find very effective and easy to use. For anybody who might be considering hypnotherapy or anyone who is looking to make effective changes in their life, I really couldn’t recommend Sally enough! I’m so grateful for her help and will without a doubt work with her again in the future!”
“I started seeing Sally three months ago as I was suffering from anxiety and after my first session I felt so much more positive. She gave me the confidence to examine my current work situation and make some important changes. Through visualisation techniques that reflect on the past and pay attention to the present and the future, I have been able to take a leap of faith and the future looks bright. My anxiety reduced after each session and I can honestly say that I am not suffering from anxiety any more. People have noticed that I am more positive and that my whole demeanour has changed. I have now completed my sessions with Sally and I can honestly say that they were life changing. Sally is so warm, welcoming and has a very caring aura. She put me at ease immediately and I really enjoyed each session as she gave me the tools to live my life in a more positive way. I would highly recommend Sally to anyone looking to make changes in their life. Thank you very, very much Sally.”
“Sally helped me greatly with my fear of public speaking, giving me the techniques to turn negative emotions into positive ones. Though I went into the experience hopeful of change, I wouldn't have imagined her sessions would have had quite the effect they did.”
“I have suffered from high levels of anxiety and panic attacks for the past two years which had become very debillitating. General counselling, cognitive behavioural therapy, many different types of anti depressants, more general counselling, failed to reduce my levels of anxiety and panic attacks. I had reached the point where I didn’t know who could help me. I couldn’t and neither could conventional treatment. After the first session I knew that I had stumbled upon something, no somebody, who was going to make a massive change to my wellbeing. Now I no longer wake up to a terrible sense of doom. I don’t understand what she does and don’t need to for her sessions are gentle but at the end have a profound effect. To say that Sally has given me my life back seems like an over the top statement but that is exactly what she has done. I can’t thank her enough for how she has helped me go from an anxiety ridden 59 year old to someone who can see how good his life his and how the past has made him what he is today and the future exciting. Thank you Sally.”
“Sally’s approach is a really effective combination of coaching and cognitive hypnotherapy. She is able – very quickly – to gain a clear understanding of people’s personality traits, individual strengths and weaknesses and how they can help or hinder your professional development and success. After a programme of sessions with Sally, I now understand better what makes me more effective in overcoming work-related challenges and how to get greater satisfaction from being in business. She is especially skilled at tapping into unexpected areas of our psychological make-up and showing how we can use them to our advantage. Overall, she has a great way with people and brings real expertise to tackling the pressures of work and careers.”
“Sally empowered me to navigate through all the areas I wanted to improve and issues I wanted to deal with with great success and was thoroughly professional throughout. For anyone considering coaching I would highly recommend Sally”
