Sue - Hypnotherapy / Inner Journey Work / Pranic Healing


Sue is an Earth Angel: she is very supportive and loving and has been with the Cottage for many years as our resident Hypnotherapist, Past Life Regression practitioner, Pranic Healer and Reiki Master.
Hypnotherapy is a treatment that uses guided relaxation, intense concentration, and focused attention to achieve a heightened state of awareness. The hypnotic state allows people to be more open to positive suggestion in order to help overcome phobias, addictions, anxiety, painful memories, sleep disorders, grief, and self-limiting behaviours.
Sue also blends Hypnotherapy and healing in her Past Life Regression treatments to take you to the source of an issue that may have originated many lifetimes ago, but is still affecting you in this life time.
Pranic Healing is an energy-based healing system where the practitioner scans your Chakras to find out where the blockages or holes are, then cleans out and re-energizes the Chakra using breath-work and colour therapy. Pranic Healing accelerates the body's innate ability to heal itself, and has helped with a large spectrum of physical and psychological conditions.
Sue is an emotional healer and counselor who can balance the whole being for healing and growth in your highest good.

Sue is available by appointment only, call 075534 3637 to book
