"I want to tell you about the help I have received I recently in the last 2 or so years developed an irrational fear of my mare tripping or falling on steep downwards tracks! I think it came from her tripping badly twice and I know all horses trip! First time she went onto her knees but I stayed on and pulled her up, 2nd time wasn't so lucky and I came off onto tarmac! Of course hopped back on and did a 2 hour hack that hurt later. I also know that my riding was sloppy and I was almost enabling the tripping with loose reins and not paying attention. So from that and a couple of other scary incidents on a different horse my fear grew and grew. I would often make excuses ,getting off and leading her downhill, or if there was a ride planned I would make excuses to MYSELF why I couldn't go.this was almost a constant battle in my head making me quite angry and disappointed with myself.. Sarah Wellband with just a few sessions has managed to get me back on track literally! It's not a magic wand you have to want this but as most riders know the will to ride is extremely strong I thank Sarah wholeheartedly and recommend her help, particularly with any horse related issues as she is completely understanding having been a rider most of her life thank you Sarah!! Hugs from me and kisses from my lovely Poppy!" JM - Portugal

"I saw Sarah mainly because I was curious about this "non-trance" hypnosis but, being a fairly skeptical person, was not expecting to get a whole lot out of it.  Wrong!  In our initial conversation, Sarah seemed to easily figure out what was really bothering me (and it wasn't what I thought it was). 


When Sarah explained more about the process, the idea that it could produce meaningful results just seemed too good to be true.  At our second session, after guiding me into a relaxed state, in which I remained fully aware of what was going on around me, Sarah simply had a conversation with my subconscious and told me I could choose to let go of the emotional baggage I'd been dragging around for so many years. Wait.... WHAT?? Really? Just like that? 


Yes, just like that! I would be the first one to doubt it was possible, but there was no denying that I instantly felt a weight lifting.  As I write this now, some time after my session with Sarah, I can still say that the hurtful memories that had all too frequently reduced me to tears no longer seem important, and that feeling seems to extend to other less-than-pleasant experiences from the past.   


For a long time, I've told myself that I couldn't undo things that had hurt me in the past, but I could stop letting them affect my present...except I couldn't.  That is changing now." VS - Portugal

"I've never met Sarah, yet it's not stopped her directing my life around onto a better path in just a matter of weeks. Her easy natural ability has made talking to her feel like I'm picking up with an old friend, yet her manner is professional, understanding and positive.
I've taken bigger leaps forward with my own self care in the last 6 weeks than I have in years.
Sarah's sessions are clearly adjusted to my needs based on my experiences, problems and how my general week had been, I don't ever feel like I'm being judged or pushed into a set of exercises or a programme, she is a wealth of knowledge and is able to encourage me, she is totally realistic when things don't work or I find them difficult to practice.
I'd recommend Sarah to anyone, she's easy to talk to, non judgemental, friendly and obviously very passionate about helping others, taking the first step forward for me was hard but she's made my journey so positive I can't thank her enough, for the first time in many years I can see some changes for the better, beyond words thank you!"  CH - Portugal

"Sarah is amazing. Not only does she have incredible soothing energy; she has the ability to take you back to traumatic times that you completely forgot about. Things that inevitably hold you back. She helps to address them and let go. She has many resources and techniques to apply to maintain your work as well. I highly recommend. Definitely needed in these challenging times. Thank you" TW - Portugal 

"Having suffered from stage fright for years I had tried many methods  to tackle it, some of which succeeded temporarily but none permanently. 
Sarah worked with me calmly and supportively over several months. During this time many  things came to light from my subconscious which helped to form a picture  of why I suffered stage  fright and how to change it. The technique she used helped enormously, not only do I feel a lot less anxious performing but if I have a wobble I have the tools to talk myself down. Thanks Sarah" LH - Portugal

"I had one of the most fabulous experiences of my life... and all thanks to Sarah Wellband! 
Through hypnosis and its enormous ability to communicate with the sub-conscious, it helped me to overcome my past traumas for over 40 years! Thank, from the bottom of my heart for everything you have done. I highly recommend their services for causes such as: Traumas, phobias, anxieties and more! A big hug and a lot of gratitude!" NM - Portugal

"On reading Sarah's facebook post on remedial hypnotherapy, I was immediately intrigued and wondered if it could help me with my fear of driving on the "wrong side" of the road. On meeting Sarah I felt immediately at ease with her and found her to be kind and empathetic.

I found the remedial hypnotherapy a fantastic way of finding core issues quickly and I especially like that it is goal oriented. Sarah also provided me with practical tips which I found particularly useful. Having completed the initial sessions, I would love to continue working with Sarah to deal with other anxiety issues." CS - Portugal

"Sarah is an exceptionally reassuring presence from the get go who manages to put you at ease. Our sessions have left me so much more optimistic for the future & able to live happily, I am so grateful." FC - UK

"I can definitely recommend Sarah if you are interested in doing hypnotherapy. It was my first time doing hypnotherapy and Sarah is very professional and trustworthy. She makes you feel comfortable and able to relax during the session. We talked about a problem I have had for many many years, and I had a great experience and felt relieved after. I am very thankful for the help Sarah gave me through this!" SHR -Sweden 

"I can't recommend Sarah enough. After years of anxiety bought about by several traumatic events my mind is finally at peace and I have the confidence to go about my daily life without fear or worry. I will be honest, I was sceptical to how the hypnotherapy could work, but believe me it did and with just three sessions I have regained control of my 'ship'. Sarah is excellent, she is everything you want a therapist to be; calm, reassuring but funny and relatable too. Thank you so much!" KH - Portugal

"I went to Sarah to help me get over my fear of getting on a horse. I have been riding horses almost all my life, but unfortunately, I quit six years ago. My fear of getting on a horse came from a nasty fall that ended my riding career. I’ve had two beautiful sessions with Sarah in a setting where I could be myself. She listened to my stories patiently and made me feel very comfortable. Sarah asked questions that made me think about what triggered my negative thoughts and emotions, which helped me enormously. It felt like I went back to the moment in my life from which the old belief arose that getting on a horse can be dangerous. Thanks to Sarah, I can put things into perspective now much better. I no longer picture myself in the hospital when I get on a horse, but I am enjoying a ride and focusing on the good things. Both sessions made me feel a little lighter, and my hope of getting back on a horse grew. After the first session, I was still very nervous, but I managed to get on a horse. After the second session, I got on a horse again, and I loved every second!! I feel that something in me has changed, and a new chapter has begun in which I revive my passion. I am enormously grateful to Sarah, and I would recommend her as a hypnotherapist to anyone, especially if you have any fear or problems with horse riding." Sav - Netherlands
