New success stories

It’s always appreciated when clients take the time and effort to let me know how things are going, either after a session or once the work has finished – the actual healing continues way after the final session, and can take weeks or even months to fully process and settle.

This lovely card arrived in the post a while ago – inside the client had written:
“I saw this card in the local shop and thought of you …. what you have achieved in a short time is amazing ….”

Just a couple of weeks ago a lady sent me a long email the day after a session.
She wrote:  “Thank you so much for our session and the spirit release yesterday … I have finally managed to shed some of the armour I had built up over the years and which eventually had desensitised me ……”

And a client I worked with over a period of several months wrote me a letter (how delightfully old-fashioned is that!) which said:

I’m very pleased to write on behalf of Judy Sharp, who I met in October 2017.

 As soon as I spoke to her on the phone I realized she grasped the problems, which were complex and longstanding.

 Within 3 weeks of starting therapy there had been a marked improvement in my physical symptoms and my confidence. Over the next four months the improvements continued and I was able to cope with situations and events that had previously been impossible.

 Her hypnotherapy has turned my life around and I still put her advice and teaching into practice – and it works.

 I feel a new person and this is obvious to friends and family who see a great change for the better.

I have no hesitation in recommending Judy as a first class hypnotherapist and counsellor.

Fear, Anxiety, Overwhelm – and Change

Are you feeling a tad “out of sorts” at the moment? Or perhaps totally confused might be more to the point? I speak with so many people who are feeling completely overwhelmed with life in general, they feel helpless, out of control, anxious, even fearful about what is going on around them.
Does that sound familiar? If so, take some comfort from knowing that you are not alone, you have not done anything wrong, it’s not your fault.
At least part of the reason is “out there” in the wider universe, where there are huge energetic changes taking place that affect not only the planet but everything and everyone on it. We are being blasted by energy and, as we are energetic beings ourselves, we are reacting to that. Does that sound a bit whacky? I’m sure it does to some people, but scientists will confirm that the planet is moving through a different part of the solar system, and through a photon belt.
We are in a period of enormous change, at many levels. We are being invited – encouraged – urged – to deal with our “stuff”. Lots of people are, indeed, “clearing out” in one way or another, be it clearing out the shed or the attic; leaving that dead-end job at last; finding the courage to leave that destructive relationship; moving house – whatever it may be, it is part of the process. But it is only a part. What you also need to do is to clear out your emotional attic. This can be just as painful as sorting out all those physical boxes you haven’t looked at in years – and just as cathartic too! It’s time to really look at all the emotional garbage you have been carrying around for years, all the “stuff” that has become part of you but that you don’t really need.

I can help you get rid of all that old “stuff”, make it go away, for good. You will feel lighter, brighter and much more positive, ready to face whatever this new adventure may bring. If that resonates with you, give me a call on 07597 020 512. I’m always happy to have a chat – it’s totally free and totally confidential.
I work from Vinings Natural Health Centre in Haywards Heath; from The Practice Rooms in Hove; and from a lovely stand-alone space in Ifield (Crawley). I look forward to hearing from you!

Irrational Fears and Phobias

When I talk about past life regression – which I do, given half a chance – some people’s eyes glaze over, I can almost see their ears closing. Others, fortunately, are much more open to the idea that a wide range of issues in this life may, in fact, have their root cause in a past life.

Irrational fears and phobias are typical examples – and I have had clients come to me with a whole range of phobias! Common ones include fear of flying, heights, water, crowds, dogs and, of course, spiders. Less common but still not unusual are fear of crossing bridges, any form of surgery or needles, having something around the neck and being alone in the dark.

Usually, people find a way of coping with these fears until such time as they interfere with life so much that something has to be done. I worked with a lady last year who had just become a grandmother, and was overjoyed. Unfortunately, her new grandson was on the other side of the world, and she had a severe fear of flying. If she wanted to see her grandson, she would have to overcome that phobia!
The interesting thing about fear of flying is that there are variations on the theme: for some it is take-off and landing, while for others it is not being in control. For this particular client, it was being in an enclosed space and not being able to get out, a sense of being trapped.

The answer was found, as is so often the case, in a past life. In this instance, it was back in the 1600s when the client was a man in India. His life unfolded as a tale of riches to rags to riches as he lost his rich wife (and her dowry), but managed to marry off his eldest daughter to a wealthy merchant. The  man got caught up in an earthquake in Calcutta, and was trapped under the rubble, unable to get out. He was not found, and died there in the rubble.
The negative emotions were released and healed, and the client came back to full consciousness feeling much lighter.

About a month later I received an email from her, to say that she had taken a short flight  “to make sure it worked” and that she had just returned from that all-important first visit to her grandson on the other side of the world: how lovely is that!

This lady had never done any past life work before, but she was open to the idea, and it certainly worked for her! It could work for you too – if you have an irrational fear or phobia that is holding you back from living life to the full, give me a call on 07597 020 512. I’m always happy to chat – it’s totally free, and totally confidential. I work from Vinings Natural Health Centre in Haywards Heath; from The Practice Rooms in Hove; and from a lovely stand-alone treatment room in Ifield (Crawley).
I look forward to hearing from you!

 

 

 

 

Creating new habits, new pathways, with the help of the unconscious

When I work with clients, I put them into a deep state of relaxation, and then I access their unconscious minds. I say to them that it is the part that looks after them, and knows everything about them. Which is true, it is the control centre, if you will, and my task is to trace back the real underlying root cause of an issue and resolve it at source.

Very often, a client comes to me with very set beliefs – “everyone does that, don’t they” or “I’m never going to get better” or “that’s just the way it is”.
Well, actually, no. What we think, becomes our reality, because when we constantly think in a certain way, we are creating a pattern that the unconscious takes as an instruction, and does its best to create whatever it may be. It’s called a neural pathway and, like any pathway, the more you tread it, the more pronounced and ingrained it becomes.
Those of you who drive will understand – when you start driving a car, it seemed impossible to keep your hands on the wheel, then put one hand on the gear stick, have your feet doing different things on the pedals without looking, while keeping your eyes on the road and in the mirror – right?
But eventually it all became totally natural, you didn’t have to think about it.
That’s how habits are formed – it takes around three weeks to re-programme the brain into a new way of doing something (that’s why in the bad old days, cigarette companies would say in their advertisements “give it 21 days”).

The unconscious loves imagery which is why so much of my work with clients who are in that state of relaxation is done through visualisation. I use this technique, for instance, when “fitting” a hypnotic gastric band, or when helping people to give up smoking. I use it when I explore traumas that have impacted on clients in this lifetime. When I am going through the process of what I call “cord cutting” – cutting away negative emotions – I actually use a large pair of scissors. The sound of cutting, combined with the strong suggestion that I am cutting away what is no longer needed, is very powerful for the unconscious.

I use similar visual techniques to help people literally shape a new version of themselves, or to “turn down” the level of nagging pain they may be suffering. Because the unconscious responds to such visual suggestions, it is highly effective.

It is all about creating a new pathway to change the habit, the reality, and sometimes I will do just that. I will set up a roadblock, a fallen tree across the road or a diversion sign so that the client has to take another route – which turns out to be a far better way to go. The unconscious accepts the instruction more readily with the added benefit of the visual aid.

The unconscious really does control our reality – but we have the power to create new pathways, new ways of thinking and, therefore, new ways of being!
If you feel I can help you with the issue that is holding you back, please feel free to get in touch – 07597 020 512. I’m always happy to have a chat, totally free of charge and in total confidence.
I work from Vinings Natural Health Centre in Haywards Heath; The Practice Rooms in Hove and a lovely stand-alone treatment room in  Ifield (Crawley).

I’m now working in Hove, actually!

I’m delighted to say that, as from September, I shall be available to see clients in the lovely setting of The Practice Rooms, in Church Road, Hove, East Sussex.
The treatment rooms are light, spacious and very comfortable, but they are on the first and second floors, so not suitable for those who cannot manage stairs.
I’m looking forward to offering my blend of hypnotherapy, past life regression, spirit release and soul retrieval work to a whole new audience. This blend is very powerful across a very wide spectrum of issues, from anxiety & overwhelm to fears & phobias; from emotional trauma and relationship issues to weight management and giving up smoking.
There is a spiritual overlay to my work, and I am happy to offer mentoring to anyone on their spiritual journey – which can be somewhat bumpy at this time!
Feel free to get in touch on 01444 459 433 or 07597 020 512 for a completely free, completely confidential chat.

Haywards Heath, Hove, Crawley – which is easiest for you?

I have been working from Vinings Natural Health Centre in Haywards Heath for several years now. It’s a lovely place to work from, right in the centre of town, yet quiet and peaceful and with its own parking. Very easy for those clients who come to see me from south London too – hop on the train from Victoria or London Bridge or Clapham Junction or East Croydon and in less than an hour there you are in the Sussex countryside!

I shall still be working from Vinings, but I am also spreading my wings: from September I shall be available in Crawley  and in Hove.
The treatment room in Crawley is in Ifield, not far from the golf course.
A delightful stand-alone room, it has a beautiful energy in a peaceful garden setting with free parking. It is a couple of minutes from the Nº 2 bus route from Crawley, and about 15 minutes’ walk from Ifield train station.

In Hove, I shall be working from The Practice Rooms in Church Road, almost opposite the large Tesco store there. These are beautiful rooms – there are seven available, so never a shortage – on the first and second floors in a lovely old characterful building. There is parking just 5 minutes away in the Norton Road multi-storey car park opposite Hove Town Hall.
Please note – there are stairs up to the first floor here, so not suitable for those clients with mobility issues.

https://thepracticerooms.co.uk/

From a base of hypnotherapy I blend past life regression, soul retrieval and spirit release work to trace the real underlying root cause of the issue, and resolve it at source, allowing the client to move on with his or her life.
My clients often say, “Jude, that’s weird – but it works!”
Whatever the issue, from fears & phobias to emotional trauma; from anxiety or that sense of overwhelm to addictive behaviours; from relationship problems to giving up smoking – my “inside out” approach has worked wonders for clients of all ages.
If you feel I might be able to help you, feel free to give me a call on 01444 459 433 or 07597 020 512: it’s totally free and totally confidential.

 

ABUSIVE RELATIONSHIPS

Over all the years I have been working as a therapist, I have come across just about every variation on the theme of “Abusive Relationship”, from children sexually abused by parents and / or other family members to emotional blackmail, verbal abuse and “gaslighting” – where one partner manipulates the other into thinking he / she is going mad.

The two main strands involved in supporting clients who are looking for help in such situations are, first, to get to the real underlying root cause of the issue and, secondly, to encourage the client to re-discover their true self.

Those who have been sexually abused from an early age (and I have known this go on even into adulthood) carry a heavy burden that could typically include shame and embarrassment; anger, rage and hatred; a sense of betrayal, loss of trust and confusion about right and wrong. All of these create a potent cocktail that frequently shows up in the adult as feelings of inadequacy and low self-esteem; inability to cultivate healthy relationships and / or appropriate sexual boundaries; a “self-destruct” button and / or self harming.
Different therapists will approach this scenario in their own ways – just one reason why it is important to find a therapist that you are comfortable with before embarking on this healing process.
My approach is typically guide a client through what I call “soul retrieval” – the client’s unconscious will tell me in which years of this life there have been trauma or events that need to be healed. With the client in a deep state of relaxation, and using powerful visualisation techniques, we go back to each year indicated in turn, not to re-live the trauma but to release the negative emotions. My question is never “what happened?” (which triggers the conscious mind) but rather “how is he / she feeling?” which keeps it in the unconscious emotional level. This can be a hugely emotional process as the client finally lets go of all the emotional baggage that has been stuffed down, hidden away for so long, and healing can take place: amazingly cathartic.
Then we can re-build the client, allowing him or her to re-discover their true self, their true power. This in itself is a process of transformation, and I love to see a lighter, brighter, more confident person emerging from the shadows.

Emotional or mental abuse is equally destructive, and gaslighting can destroy someone without them realising what is happening.
Here I work with the client to unravel the tangled roots of the issue back to source. Sometimes this is not as easy as it may seem and may well be somewhat uncomfortable for the client as outdated, inappropriate beliefs and conditioning are dismantled. Relationships may then be seen in a different light; power games recognised for what they are; and different choices may be made, all in a safe, secure environment that builds confidence, self-power and understanding.

If you know someone who may benefit from resolving such issues, do give them my contact numbers – 01444 459 433 or 07597 020 512. Or they can get in touch using the form on this website: the messages do reach me, and I do respond!

I am based in Haywards Heath, West Sussex, and I work from Vinings Natural Health Centre, also in Haywards Heath. I look forward to hearing from you!

BEEN THERE, DONE THAT ….

We usually buy T-shirts as souvenirs, reminders of happy times in special places.
Sadly, though, we all have other T-shirts: those that are imprinted with all of the programming and put-downs we have received over the years, from parents, teachers and bosses; from lovers and partners; from those in power in “the system”. Careless comments from a trusted teacher can create a wound that oozes insecurity and a sense of not being good enough. Repeated telling off (or worse) from parents invariably create issues that echo through to adult life in the form of anxiety or negativity; fear or perhaps lack of boundaries around appropriate behaviour.

I work with clients to trace the real, underlying root cause of whatever issue brings them to me, be it a fear or phobia or emotional trauma; an abusive relationship or more generalised anxiety. Resolving the issue at source allows the client to take off that restrictive T-shirt and choose a more positive one for the future.
My work is based on hypnotherapy to access the unconscious mind of the client, and it blends past life regression with spirit release and soul retrieval work. Yes, it might sound a bit “out there” – many of my clients say the same thing – but they also say, “Jude, it’s weird, but it works!”

If you know someone who needs a change of T-shirt, give them my numbers, 01444 459 433 or 07597 020 512: I’m always happy to have a chat.

PRIVACY POLICY

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) legislation has come into force: this provides strict guidelines relating to personal data and how privacy is protected.

In accordance with GDPR, I would like to reassure existing and potential clients that I take the gathering, handling and storage of personal data very seriously, as I always have done.

As part of the first session, I ask for certain basic personal information from a client including name, address, contact details and date of birth.

During the first and subsequent sessions, as the client shares details of their particular issues and answers questions I may ask, further personal information is gathered, and this is kept on the client’s confidential file.

This information helps to shape the therapy sessions, based on hypnotherapy and associated processes.

I keep client files safe and secure, and all data is kept completely confidential, as it always has been.

No client data is ever passed to any third party, unless there is a legal requirement to do so.

Client files are usually kept for a period of seven years from the last appointment, and are then securely destroyed.

Clients may ask to see their files at any time and I am happy to do this.

If any data in the file is incorrect, it will be corrected immediately.

Please feel free to contact me if you would like further information:
