Welcome to my Online Hypnotherapy Clinic

Over 25 years of Professional Experience in Helping you Transform

Susanna Sweeney, Accredited Psychotherapist M.B.A.C.P. and Clinical Hypnotherapist

Hello, I am Susanna Sweeney. This page is where I get to tell you my own story and why I do what I do. I am glad you are here and are giving me the opportunity to connect with you on that level.

This article tells the story of why I actively promote hypnotherapy and work to dismantle the many prevailing hypnosis myths - so that hypnotherapy will become more accessible for people like you and so that you can more easily benefit from the miracles it has to offer. It tells the story of why I created the Online Hypnotherapy Clinic.

Furthermore, it introduces our first active Online Hypnotherapy Clinic- my anxiety and trauma clinic and tells the story of why I specialize in this area.  Find out more about my clinic and about hypnotherapy for anxiety here.


Why I do What I do

 

I think might be a lot like you. From a young age, I had a strong desire to be uniquely myself, to express myself creatively and forge my own path. 

At the same time, I felt held back by and I struggled with  anxiety. In hindsight I know this was as a result of childhood trauma and also inter-generational trauma that was passed down to me. The anxiety manifested as toxic emotions such as anger, fear and persistent sadness that I felt practically all the time. 

  • I was very anxious socially. Mixing with people was a real challenge. I'd often avoid it altogether.
  • I couldn't decide what I wanted to do with my life, not because I didn't know, but because of anxiety resulting in low confidence.
  • I could function- as long as I followed a clearly laid out structure. Following such a structure, I held down a job and developed that into a career even, but deep down I did not felt right, never mind fulfilled.
  • As soon as it came to following my path,  of course, there was no structure- and anxiety put a halt to my projects soon enough.

Overall, for many years, living my life felt like I was trying to drive a car having one foot on the gas and the other on the brakes. 


Reducing Anxiety with Psychotherapy

I underwent many years of psychotherapy with a very good therapist. With her help I stripped layers upon layers of pain and anxiety. The work was excruciating and painful to be honest, and way harder than I'd like it to be for any one of my clients.

I was not aware of any alternatives back then. But my desire to truly be myself was strong, and my pain levels were such that I stuck with it. Part of my motivation was also that I was determined not to pass my troubles on to my future children.

For a period of about some years I made good progress.  Anxiety levels were dropping. My life changed too, according to how my inner state was changing- for example, I was now in a loving long term relationship. But then, after sustaining severe soft tissue injuries in a car crash in 2004, everything ground to a halt.  I was out of work, in pain and unable to function. 

In hindsight I can say that, triggered by the car accident, another, much deeper layer of trauma  was surfacing.  All I knew at the time was that, feeling unsettled,  I questioned everything I was doing. Anxiety levels were up once more. And I was about to discover that the familiar tools I had used were no longer working to reduce it.

The Limits of Psychotherapy for Clearing Anxiety

paul mckenna susanna sweeneyWith Paul McKenna, 2019

I knew well it was the inside that needed changing so that the outside world could align itself for me once again. So, I reached for my usual tools. 

By now I was fully trained in sensorimotor psychotherapy. I got good results with clients. But for me, talk therapy no longer provided any anxiety relief.

This was very disappointing and also hard to admit or understand at the time as I had trained under the assumption that psychotherapy was the most reliable way of shifting unconscious material. I now met its limits.

When I found that talk therapy no longer worked, this led me to trying out many other ways of working. For example, I tried out different forms of complimentary or so called alternative therapies with mixed results.

Mostly, throughout this time, I felt like I was groping in the dark. I was growing increasingly frustrated and I felt utterly lost.

The lesson I learned the hard way: the most effective way to heal anxiety and trauma is not to focus on either the physical body and medicate or treat that or on the conscious mind with talk therapy, but rather to focus on the subconscious mind which controls both and gives direct access to traumatically encoded memory.

In other words,, I have come to see that getting to the very bottom of the barrel of the trauma that underlies anxiety requires different types of tools. It requires tools that address the subconscious mind directly.


Clearing Anxiety with Hypnotherapy

During this period of feeling utterly lost- one day, in an online search, completely by accident- I stumbled upon hypnosis. In the spirit of Western World rational left brain thinking, my first two responses were suspicion and doubt. Thankfully, my third response was curiosity.

I figured that since I had nothing to lose, I might give self hypnosis a go, working only with a simple recording. Well, I have never looked back.

In that first session of self hypnosis I went deep into my subconscious mind where I could embrace all my dreams and ideals without censoring them.

I got unstuck in the space of only twenty minutes. Hypnotherapy, by bypassing by conscious mind, helped me tap into my inner resources. This was followed by an unprecedented rate of change in the months and years that followed.

Why? When you use hypnotherapy for change you learn to harness your subconscious mind. This was a complete revelation to me. I had neglected bringing my subconscious mind on board when I was looking to make changes! Now that I was tapping into it, things were moving.

  • I started to feel better
  • I started doing things differently
  • I opened up to trying out new solutions I had previously discounted
  • I became very focused on my goals

After seeing the first few dramatic changes, I fell in love with hypnotherapy and trained in it. To me, hypnotherapy is the Rolls Royce of therapies, turbo-charging the pace of change, making for a safe and effective change process.

Hypnotherapy for Anxiety

Check out my hypnotherapy for anxiety clinic here.

Using hypnotherapy for change has helped me to:

  • Get rid of anxiety for good using regression work
  • Love and value myself properly
  • Break through familiar and frustrating patterns
  • Have the courage to try out new ways of being and working, stepping out of my comfort zone
  • Be happier and more fulfilled


I now Offer Ultra Short Term Therapy for Clearing Anxiety

My process of groping in the dark and being lost covered the better part of ten years. Precious time, as we only have one life.

The story ends well however. Not only did I finally clear that anxiety for good, but I also found myself as a therapist.

This is why I have developed the findings of my experiments on myself into a bundle of working methods that allow me to help clients like you resolve anxiety in a process of ultra short term therapy- so that you don't have to undergo the agony I did.

While you go through the healing process you will still have to feel some uncomfortable feelings such as anger, fear or grief, depending on the nature of the particular trauma that needs to be cleared.  But the tools I now work with make the brain feel safe in processing traumatic material so that the discharge process can flow freely and typically feels very grounded and safe.

This work is also very effective and we get results much faster than I have seen with any other methods.

(If you are interested in my professional credentials and in the particular methods I use you can read more  about them underneath.)

The Methods I Use in One-to-One Work

These are the methods I use in my one-to-one work, both online and in person. They work just as well online as they do face to face. You can work with me from the comfort of your own home.


Hypnotherapy 

There are many different strands of hypnotherapy of which I have tried out a few on myself. I now only work with what I have found most effective for anxiety. I avoid scripts and work with fast moving, interactive and dynamic methods.

Best of all, this work is content free- which means that you can tell me as much or as little about your story as you wish- no need for a huge amount of detail.


Permanent Rapid Change Hypnosis

Furthermore I use a dynamic form of hypnosis for rapid and permanent change.


Havening Techniques®️

During my experiments on myself, I fell in love with Havening Techniques®️.

This is a powerful, new, neuroscience based modality that is capable of removing the symptoms of anxiety and depression (among many other conditions) gently, reliably, and for good.

I use Havening in conjunction with hypnosis in my client work, both online and off.
