Anxiety Relief Reviews

Relieving Unconscious Childhood Beliefs

I saw Sue for help to relieve childhood unconscious beliefs that were holding me back from living my life in the present day with freedom and possibility.

I was held back by unconscious childhood beliefs that were stopping me from feeling free and open.

Since seeing Sue, I have rediscovered freedom, joy and liberation that was always inside of me.

Those beliefs do not exist anymore.

Hypnosis for public speaking

I saw Sue for support and strategies to improve at interviews and when speaking in front of large groups.

I was highly anxious before and during interviews and when speaking in front of an audience. Difficulty thinking, articulating thoughts, breathing at times. Total feeling of overwhelm.

Since seeing Sue, I am much more aware of physical sensations and thoughts when in these situations. Using strategies and mindsets to adjust patterns of thinking increased confidence in above situations.

What surprised me most about hypnotherapy was how easy and effective it was, and the changes I saw after just the first session. Sue was just wonderful. I felt a connection to her immediately.

Now I am easily able to manage anxious feelings

“I saw Sue to assist with anxiety following my first ever panic attack. I was very anxious and not myself. Constantly overthinking aspects of life and becoming more reclusive following my panic attack.

Now I am easily able to manage anxious feelings and whilst I understand that I may have a panic attack again I understand the ways that I need to deal with it if it does occur and am not constantly worried.

What surprised me about hypnotherapy is how effective it was. It has been 1 month since my initial appointment and I can see the impact it has had in my overall general day, I am more positive and things that I was previously concerned about do not seem as heavy.”

I would definitely recommend Sue for hypnotherapy.”

SK, Merewether

You have changed my life

“Before seeing Sue, I was suffering from severe anxiety, not coping with my past and continually doubting and questioning my future. I couldn’t control my thoughts and most of the time they were negative.

I now feel a sense of calm in my life. I’m more focused and dealing with life on a day to day basis. I found my experience to be kind of magical and totally believe in hypnotherapy and how we can unravel the confusion anxiety causes. I will continue therapy in the future to deal with other aspects of my mental health.

I was most surprised by how easy the process was. Sue made me feel understood right from the beginning, and was able to clearly explain the process from the start to finish. My first appointment was in her office and then due to COVID my second and third appointment were via video link. I found home therapy easier as I was relaxed in my own environment. It really works for me and I found it to be a magical experience.

Thank you Sue, you have changed my life.”

TB, Thornton

Hypnosis feels amazing!

“I was extremely anxious all the time. I couldn’t leave the house by myself and I was having frequent panic attacks. Now I have learnt about my anxiety triggers and how to deal with panic attacks. I have learnt how to put myself into a hypnosis to help me calm myself down. I learnt more about myself and how certain things that have happened to me have affected me more than I thought. I can stem my triggers back to a specific incident that has happened to me. Hypnosis feels amazing!”

SP, Adamstown

Now I am able to be myself and confident

“I came to this service for help with my anxiety and fears over small problems.I found it hard to be myself and fully confident. Now, I am able to be myself and confident. It is nothing like being hypontised by magician or in cartoon, instead you are in a deep sleep that you still have full control of.”

Eve, aged 13 (2 sessions)

I had no idea something could work so quickly.

“My son saw Sue for help with my son’s needle phobia. We saw our gp for many appointment to try to get him used to the process of having a needle in the same environment. We went to a psychologist who also tried cognitive therapy. None of these approaches changed the fear response my son was having when faced with the final approach of the needle.

After 5 years of trying to help my son overcome his needle phobia we had 2 sessions with Sue and he has been able to have his Covid – 19 vaccination. The first session Sue was able to peacefully free him of his crippling needle phobia. He walked away from the session instantly fine with needles!!  All the instinctive flight fight fright responses were gone. The 2nd session freed him of his floating or general anxieties which has allowed him to feel his feelings come and go, good or bad as we all do, without that rock in the pitt of his stomach. To be able to make choices based on his actual feelings not anxieties.

I was surprised it worked!!! Lol sorry Sue! After everything we have been through to try to help him over the years I had no idea something could work so quickly. I honestly feel bittersweet, so so happy he has overcome this, but also as a mum so sad we didn’t know this sooner and could have helped him sooner.

It was not traumatic or painful, quite the opposite, he was awake and seemed to enjoy it. The opposite to other treatments we tried.

If you are uncertain I say o not hesitate to call Sue, she will definitely be able to help you or your loved one. Thank you Sue, you have forever changed our sons world for the better and we will be eternally grateful.”

Amye, Lake Macquarie

I have been able to be more self aware

“I saw Sue for help with my anxiety. Small events in my life would add to my anxiety, so that I was constantly running on a high level of anxiety. Since seeing Sue, I have been able to be more self aware and feel my anxiety lessening.

What surprised me most about hypnotherapy was how calming it is.”


I feel free

“I came to see Sue for help to calm my anxiety and change my way of thinking in regards to myself and the world around me. I had a lot of doubts and fear. Anxiety was a big controller in my life.

Now, I feel free. I don’t feel weighed down by negative emotions anymore! I was surprised about how effective hypnotherapy was.”


No reaction to previous triggers

“Before seeing Sue I was feeling overwhelmed with anxiety – was becoming more frequent and triggered by insignificant/trivial events.

Since seeing Sue I am calmer. Able to control any feelings of anxiety with a little shallow breath and it passes. I have no reaction to previous triggers. Sleeping better as well.

With regard to hypnotherapy I was surprised how quickly my mind re-adjusted its reactions to situations where previously I would have had an overwhelming feeling of anxiety! I was very committed to focusing throughout the process and believed this has helped me with my results.”

Kirsty (1 appointment)

I really looked forward to each session

“I originally came to see Sue for help with nail biting, but actually it was more anxiety and unresolved issues from my past.

The thing that surprised me most about hypnotherapy was how very relaxing it was, freeing and I really looked forward to each session, knowing how much better I would feel after. I definitely recommend Sue and her services.”


I feel more grounded and at peace with myself

“My GP referred Sue & after my previous treatments for anxiety I was open to the idea of trying hypnotherapy. Before seeing Sue I was suffering terrible anxiety and post natal depression. I wanted to try alternative therapies before starting on a stronger medication.

Since seeing Sue I feel grounded & more at peace with myself. Prior to Sue I was really struggling to come to terms with becoming a mother as well as coping with the pandemic.

Hypnotherapy is not as crazy as you think. If you go in with an open mind that’s the best thing to do. There’s no voodoo or sage suffocating smudges. Sue is a professional & I found her very comfortable to talk to.”

GW, Lemon Tree Passage (3 sessions)

I’m feeling much more in control

“I came to see Sue for help with Anxiety and Weight Loss. I was unsure how to manage my anxiety without medication. I was also unsure how to stop stress eating. I was anxious about pretty much everything and also angry and not a nice person to be around! Now, I am not experiencing anxiety as much and if I do it is not to the same level it once was and I am also able to talk myself around it. I’m feeling much more in control of my thoughts and how I communicate.

What surprised me most about hypnotherapy is that you are in control the whole time. Sue definitely helped me and I would definitely recommend her services.”

Debbie, Mayfield

I can now see things with clarity

“I saw Sue for help with anxiety and stress, I felt on edge as if I could never fully rest and feel at peace. Now, I know what calm is again. To be fully present and in the moment. The butterflies in my stomach have calmed down and I can now see things with clarity. What surprised me most was how easy hypnotherapy was to do. How well it worked and continues to keep working after the appointments.”

KB, Eleebana

I feel more motivated than ever

“I came to see Sue for help with general anxiety, but also key triggers affecting daily tasks, I felt nervous most of the time, some days that unmotivated I wouldn’t want to do anything.

I was surprised how quickly things thanked. Between the sessions themselves and the audio to take home, the entire experience was so easy.

I now feel more motivated than ever, and actually deliberately challenging my fears when given the opportunity.”

Tom, Rutherford

I saw Sue for Trauma Related Anxiety

“I saw Sue for Trauma Related Anxiety. I felt unsafe in my body and had a general sense of uneasiness in my world. Since seeing Sue, I feel safe in my body and have a sense of trust and confidence within myself.

What surprised me about hypnotherapy was the power it has to change how you feel in such a short period of time.”

Kerry, Merewether (3 sessions)

The sessions worked a treat!

“Just wanted to let you know how great I have felt since my sessions with you. As you know I had anxiety regarding overseas travel. We went to the Middle East end of January and I didn’t experience any symptoms of anxiety and there were some uneasy moments and times of uncertainty when we had to cancel half our trip because of Covid.

We gave been back about 10 weeks now and have also needed to drive to Sydney twice (which used to make me anxious) . Once again felt quite at ease.
Yesterday was another test for me as I went to donate blood, something that also used to unnerve me, but I breezed through it! Thank you so much for my treatment sessions which have obviously worked a treat!”

Hypnosis is next level. It exceeded my expectations

“I became ill with a stomach disorder 12 months ago which I am still in the process of trying to get a diagnosis as many’s tests have found nothing. The physical discomfort this was causing and not knowing what it is, what causes it, what to do to relieve it and when and if it will get better or if I now have to live with it for the rest of my life put my anxiety through the roof. A phychologist confirmed my anxiety was caused by uncertainty and other uncertainties in life that never use to really bother me were now stressing me out also.

My psychologist helped me manage this well through mindfulness and meditation. But this needs to be done consistently, as soon as I became complacent with the meditation the anxiety came creeping back.

After my first session with Sue WOW I was on cloud 9. For the first time in 12 months my mind was quiet. It has now been a month since my third session I have not felt the need for meditation. Best thing about it is that unhelpful autopilot unhelpful fear response to certain senarios I use to have is gone.

I thought of myself as a pretty calm and relaxed person 12 months ago before my whole stomach ordeal started. I wouldn’t say I’m back to normal I’m BETTER then normal.

Hypnosis is next level. Anyone want to kick their anxiety once and for all book in with Sue now. What surprised me most about hypnosis?

The fact that by bypassing and speaking to your subconscious you don’t have to talk about all your problems and bring up all your old demons during session.
That it can help with worries and unhelpful behaviours you didn’t even know you had.

It exceeded my expectations, especially getting rid of my autopilot anxiety response where it is not helpful.”

Christopher (3 online sessions)

You feel very secure

“I wanted help with what I thought were “my” failings resulting in what I considered to be bad habits getting in the way of me reaching goals, or even just feeling like I had a productive day, week, month, or even year.

Overall I felt out of balance and actually didn’t really know why.

Before seeing Sue, I felt frustrated with myself and overwhelmed by day to day life, let alone bigger or longer term issues. I felt like I was failing me and my family for really very minor things. I didn’t realise the weight of the “old” stuff that was weighing me down (before my day even started).

Since seeing Sue, I feel much lighter, and clearer. Much clearer about what is realistic, what my strengths are, what I needed to let go of, and what/WHO is important to me.

What surprised me most about hypnosis was: You feel very secure that your conscious/subconscious wouldn’t let you go to where you aren’t ready for, if anything did arise that was too much in that moment.”

LC (2 online sessions)

A wonderful experience

“The past few weeks undergoing hypnosis with Sue have been a wonderful experience. The whole process has been so positive and I’m looking forward to the changes to my life that I am already feeling take shape. I was hypnotized for my severe anxiety disorder, and for the first time in about a decade I am feeling relaxed and able to redirect my brain to a more positive way of thinking and feeling. Thanks so much Sue, I would highly recommend this service to anyone and everyone.”

Jarrod, Hunter Valley (3 online sessions)

My self-sabotaging inner dialogue has gone

“I came to see Sue for help, because I had tried everything and needed to get my life in order as a result of being medically retired, holding onto stuff from my past which had resulted in many self-limiting beliefs.

Ever since working with Sue, all the bad memories since childhood onwards are no longer there – like they’ve just disappeared. I’m stronger and more confident and stand up for my self more, my self sabotaging inner dialogue has gone – I’m more confident now.

What surprised me most about hypnosis was how easy it was, how effective it is, and like going to a doctor for a yearly check up I can go back if I have more issues and get them dealt with before they become a major problem.”

Carole Robinson, Fullerton Cove

I am amazed at the change

“I came to see Sue for treatment for stress, anxiety, excesses, time keeping, and I am amazed at the change. What surprised me most is that changes do happen!”

Richard, Kotara

More Calm & Stress Free each day

“I came to see Sue for Peace of mind, calmness and motivation, and to get rid of the “voices” in my head. Since working with Sue,  I have felt a huge difference in my brain by allowing me to be more calm & stress free each day. What surprised me most about hypnosis was how crazy & amazing it all is. It really is an amazing thing & has helped me in more ways than I could have helped myself.”

Sevanna, Minmi

A great difference in my life

“I have decided not to do any more sessions. The help has been fantastic. I am still healing but I am so much better. So thank you very much for your help it has made a great difference in my life. I am feeling good and moving on from this hard time in my life and looking forward to better things.”
Michael (6 online hypnotherapy sessions)

Inner peace and joy

“I came to see Sue to find my mojo, help with more positive internal dialogue, find inner peace & joy. To help with sleeping. Ever since working with Sue, I’ve felt better bye to express myself, able to accept myself and how I feel & to be kind to myself. I still wake up a little bit during the night but find I go back to sleep easier. What surprised me most about hypnosis is how much more positive I feel and how much more calm I feel.”

Karen, Inverell

Don, Cessnock (2 appointments)

I’m amazed how easy this process was

“It’s been 30 days since my first appointment with Sue and I’m amazed how easy this process was to become a true Nonsmoker.  I highly recommend Sue to anyone who seriously wants to quit smoking.”

“So very glad I tried hypnotherapy with Sue. I was sceptical at first as I had no experience with this type of therapy but I am very happy with the result and found the process comfortable and reassuring.”

Mary, Waratah (3 sessions)

Cannot thank her enough!

“I feel like seeing Sue has allowed me to be free of my anxiety that has been holding me back for so long and finally start living my life! I noticed right away the change and I’m never going back! The hypnosis was surreal but also she gave me lots of techniques to cope with other things happening in my head and I use these everyday! Cannot thank her enough!”

Louise, Seaham (2 appointments)

Emma, Belmont (1 appointment)

I would tell everyone to see Sue

“Sue is amazing !! I was really hoping this was going to help my anxieties, I wasn’t sure if it would or not but thought I had to give it a go. I am so glad I did! My glass is now only half empty and miraculously no matter how hard I try to bring my anxious thoughts back into my head and get that awful knot tying, panicky feeling in my stomach and chest, I can’t. I am forever grateful. I would tell everyone to see Sue. What have you got to lose besides the anxieties lol :)”

Libby (1 appointment)

The turning point for managing my depression

“Sue has been the turning point for managing my depression. Within a few sessions I felt free of the weight of depression and no longer need antidepressants.

I choose to see Sue regularly as an ongoing tool for my wellness, and really look forward to our catchups. Thankyou Sue, I’m so grateful our paths have crossed.”

Melissa, Charlestown

Made a huge difference

Gina, Anna Bay (2 appointments)

I’m in charge again

Sharon, Warners Bay (1 session)

I’m a happier man because of her help

“Sue helped me to overcome my anxiety during interviews by providing relaxation & confidence techniques to naturally overcome and conquer my anxiety. I have found new ways to de-stress and boost self confidence without the need to overthink and stress myself out in the process. I highly recommend Sue to all who need a hand in cutting and connecting the right thought processes to naturally cure and overcome any stress that may present itself. I’m a happier man because of her help.”

Patrick, Charlestown (2 appointments)

Helped Me Get Past My Insecurities

“I’ve been doing well, your sessions really helped me get past my insecurities and I have found myself doing things I would never have done previously. Thanks!”
Briony, Carrington (3 appointments)

None of the Previous Anxiety or Negative Thinking

“(My daughter) sat her trial HSC exam for Biology on Wednesday this week – a huge 3 hour exam. I have not seen her look so calm and energised for an exam! When I dropped her off at school and wished her luck she said “thanks mum, I’ve got this!” which I had no doubt she did but there was none of the previous anxiety or negative thinking like before. I am certain your session with her has had a big impact on her subconscious and her ability to manage her pre-exam stress. So thanks, again!”

Kim, Kotara (1 appointment)

Made a believer out of me!

“I automatically look at the lining of my clouds now, and often wake up genuinely happy. Thanks, Sue.”

Sherry, Newcastle (2 appointments)

Helped me put things into perspective

“Sue put me at ease immediately. I found her to be an experienced clinician.

The hypnotherapy had a relaxing, immediate effect alongside her counselling which I found beneficial and helped me put things into perspective in both the short and long term.”

Kiddo, Merewether (5 appointments)

Never felt so in control

“I had heard the positives of hypnotherapy, but when my GP recommended this “alternate” method of “treatment” to help deal with coping with anxiety, I realised there just might be something in it. I had the “breathing to relax” down pat, so what could I lose? I lost nothing, and gained everything. Sue was amazing, gentle yet realistic, no mamsy pamsy trance like state where you lose consciousness and don’t remember a thing, just gentle conversation and relaxation . I am calmer, more able to cope with life’s stresses (and there are some!). I didn’t have to be a bleeding heart, or tell my life’s story, I just had to explain what I was feeling and then listen. Just listen. A few sessions later and I have never felt so in control of my thoughts and emotions. No more churned stomach or sick feeling for me. I will know where to go if I ever get so overwhelmed again. I cannot recommend Sue enough nor the benefits or hypnotherapy.”

Narelle (3 appointments)

Helped me through one of my darkest times

“I feel Sue helped me through one of my darkest times after losing our baby. I believe without Sue’s help we may not have had any more children – thank you Sue!”

Bronwyn, Maitland (3 appointments)

Sue is very professional

“I had hypnotherapy with Sue to help me manage some food issues. She is very professional and I would highly recommend her to anyone!!”

Rachel, Cardiff

Hypnotherapy is an amazing tool

“I saw Sue for help to move forward with my life and overcome low self-esteem and anxiety. Hypnotherapy is an amazing tool. I felt a wave of relaxation in Sue’s office overcome me. Along with this, every other reason I saw Sue for hypnotherapy is now overcome – truly a worthwhile practice. Thanks!!”

Linda, Merewether (2 appointments)

A most positive experience

“I found Sue’s services to be a most positive experience. Her relaxation techniques in particular have provided me with the tools to deal with the stress and anxiety I have suffered for decades. This has resulted in an increasingly positive outlook on life, much to the relief of my family. Sue’s professionalism and kindness is also very reassuring. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her services to others.”

Steve, Adamstown (3 appointments)

The most incredible labour experience

“All thanks to you Sue I had the most incredible labour experience, I was completely calm the whole 17 hours and for 13 hours I was able to breath through the pain. I cannot praise you higher! Thank you thank you thank you. I can’t wait for you to meet her.”

Sophia, Raymond Terrace (3 appointments)

Positive ways to improve my life

“Early caution passed and Sue showed me positive ways to manage and improve my life.”

David, Maitland (2 appointments)

I was somewhat sceptical prior to my visit

“Sue is highly professional, yet personable, and able to establish a strong rapport and trust very quickly and credibly. I was somewhat sceptical prior to my visit as I’ve never undergone hypnotherapy. I see and feel significant and tangible changes in myself and I have new-found skills to deal with matters that previously rendered me inoperable. Thank you.”

Colin, Mayfield (3 appointments)

Happier now

“I am much happier now. I can cope with school and life in general all thanks to Sue.”

Beth, Adamstown (2 appointments)

Welcoming and calming

“I find Sue very welcoming, calming and easy to talk to. Sometimes you need someone neutral to help sift through issues without the emotional connection. Sue gave me some strategies and also helped me “let go” of some guilt and anger and resentment with the help of hypnotherapy. I found the experience to be quite healing and cathartic. I would recommend Sue and would see her again myself.”

Margaret, Lambton (1 appointment)

A Special Professional

“Sue has been so instrumental in my depression after the loss of my wife of 45 years. The tools to use have made me “educated” in human nature after my loss … Be ready to accept help from a special professional like Sue.”

Roger, Warners Bay (5 appointments)

Calming experience

“Thank you Sue for a very calming experience. I liked your professional approach and skill at being able to hypnotise me. Never thought I could relax enough for that to happen.”

Rachael, Newcastle (2 appointments)

Quality of life has improved

“I think that the ultimate outcome is that I can recognise my anxiety more easily/readily, and therefore implement strategies to manage it sooner than I could before having hypnotherapy. So the issues have not been removed, but I find I am having greater success at managing them. Therefore, my quality of life has improved.”

Angela, Merewether Heights (2 appointments)

Recommend Sue to anyone

“Sue helped me to overcome stresses and pressures that had been hanging over me for years. She taught me strategies to let go of anger and relax myself. I had been experiencing panic attacks for 7 years and have not had one since completing my treatment more than 6 months ago. I have recommended her to anyone I can and informed them of my success and of the wonderful relationship Sue and I developed during our sessions. Thanks again, Sue!”
