About What’s the Alternative Therapy

My background is in education and I have always been interested in how people learn and achieve positive change in their lives.

I am a clinical hypnotherapist, stress management consultant and Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) practitioner. I first became interested in complementary therapies in 2004; I went for a reiki treatment myself to help me when I was at a crossroads in my life. I was so impressed that I went on to train as a level 2 reiki practitioner in order to be able to treat others too. My quest to find ways to help people using bespoke and personal tools lead me to study to become a hypnotherapist. I started my practice part time and became so busy that I now work as a hypnotherapist, stress management consultant and reiki practitioner full time. I love the way that the way I work is person-centred and not a “one-size fits all” scenario.

I also work with individual clients, employees and groups, such as students to show people how to build resilience. No one can wave a magic wand and remove all of the stress in our lives, but we can take control, change our perspective and deal with it better.

My specialties are in weight control, (for more detailed information on weight control see http://www.hypnoticgastricbandnottingham.co.uk/) stress and anxiety and phobias, however hypnotherapy is helpful for many other conditions and problems. For example, we all know to shed the pounds, we need to move about more and eat less, but for some of us something holds us back from doing that. This is our subconscious mind. Unlike some other therapies hypnotherapy involves communication with your subconscious and so can be effective in a much shorter time. A typical client would need four weekly sessions and follow up up appointments afterwards for support to suit them.

I am a member of the National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH), Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC), International Stress Management Association (ISMA) and United Kingdom Reiki Federation and I have full professional insurance.

Keryn, Nottingham, May 29 2016

I was a little nervous at receiving hypnotherapy but I can honestly say Sam put me at ease straight away. She came over as a very sensitive and caring person. She was genuinely interested in how I was feeling and ensured I got the very best out of every session. I would most certainly visit her again should the need arise. Thanx Sam. Xxx

Laura, Nottingham, January 18 2016

Sam is great at what she does. I was not sure what to expect at first, but Sam made me feel comfortable and at ease straight away. After one session I am on my way to success thanks to Sam. I would and have recommended to friends. X

Georgia, nottingham, October 18 2015

Sam helped me with my fear of sickness, she was always patient and i felt that she understood my situation. Before i started treatment with her i couldn’t even hear the word vomit with out being upset. By the end of the sessions I was watching videos of people being sick and only feeling a little anxious. i feel able to cope with someone being ill now.

Chris, NOTTINGHAM, August 25 2015

From the moment I met Sam I knew she was a caring professional, you can tell she treats every client as an individual and tailors the sessions accordingly, she listens well and comes up with some really useful aids to whatever your problem is. I was very impressed and felt very comfortable and relaxed in her presence at all times. I would recommend her to anyone.

ken, nottingham, July 27 2015

My name is Ken, I’m 67 years old and I’m a non smoker. I couldn’t have said that two weeks ago but after two sessions with Samantha I no longer feel the urge to smoke and after fifty years of smoking that is a mighty statement. I expected to be climbing the walls and shouting at everybody but it just hasn’t happened. Hopefully I can do it on my own now but I know if I start to weaken I can get in touch with Samantha and get some help.

Kathleen, nottingham, June 26 2015

I was referred to Sam by my practice nurse as a private patient for my problem,I felt very comfortable in her presence. Herself and the CD with her guidance have helped me.

Sharon, Nottingham, April 30 2015

I’ve always had an unhealthy relationship with food and was caught in a vicious cycle of dieting and binge eating. Having lost over 3 stones in weight, I’d once again found myself constantly obsessing about food and submerged in a cycle of over eating yet again. It had to stop once and for all and this is where Sam came in.She’d been recommended to me and though I’d never thought about using alternative therapies before, I decided to give it a try. I am so glad that I did. The four sessions were like an oasis of calm and tranquility in my life and with the tools and strategies Sam gave me I feel much more in control and able to manage my relationship with food using the skills I’ve acquired from Sam’s sessions. I would certainly recommend Sam for alternative therapy and will definitely be in touch again should I need a ’top up’ or ’tweak’. Many thanks Sam.

Jenny, Nottingham, March 01 2015

I went to see Samantha in February 2015 as I desperately wanted to stop smoking after 40+years. I tried most other non smoking aids to no avail and lack of willpower on my part. Samantha soon became Sam as is her way of making you feel relaxed, comfortable, and totally non judgemental. Sam clearly listened to what I needed to say, then reassuringly talked me through the journey of therapy and I felt safe to carry on . I am thrilled to say after a session of hypnotherapy (which was wonderful) I have not had a cigarette, or had a craving for one. I have regained my confidence, and feel so good. I would recommend Sam to anyone who wanted to become a non smoker and try alternative therapy. Thank you so much Sam. Jenny . Sent from my iPad

Lorna, Nottingham , February 03 2015

I have had the pleasure of knowing Sam for a few years now... Sam is exceptionally caring & professional and someone you can trust... Sam has always been a wonderful addition to our Reiki Shares in the past, bringing her calming & nurturing energy :0) I would highly recommend Sam to anyone considering alternative therapy & Reiki - and trust that you would be treated as the unique individual you are, and benefit on all levels x

Esther , Nottingham, January 29 2015

I highly recommend Samantha as I felt at ease as soon as I met her. She is warm, friendly and very professional at the same time. Loved the relaxation room as makes you feel at home straight away. I had a very relaxing and re balancing reiki session with her and left feeling much happier and less stressed than when I arrived. Thanks you so much, I’ll definitely be returning

Alison, Nottingham, January 05 2015

I have always been a no nonsense person who is used to "getting a grip" when faced with work and domestic problems. Hitherto this approach has served me well and helped to underpin a very demanding career. I turned to Sam for help when I developed a phobia of falling which significantly affected my daily life. My usual coping mechanisms were completely ineffective and I had got to the point of being desperate to resolve my problem. Through just a few sessions with Sam I gained the ability to re-condition my mind to combat the phobia and get my life back on track.

Tracie, Arnold, December 21 2014

I took my 13year old daughter to help with he self confidence & positive attitude in her sport & school work, I can’t believe the change in her!after 2 sessions. She took on what Samantha had said & has made marked improvements in both areas. She believes in herself! Samantha assured me that the treatment is very gentle. My daughter is most impressed with herself. I would not hesitate to go back in the future & would definitely recommend Samantha. Thank You

Sheila, Nottingham, June 16 2014

I booked a hypnotherapy course with Samantha as I wanted to find a way of dealing with emotional overeating. I found Sam to be very good at listening to me and asking me questions to help clarify what I wanted to get out of the sessions. She made sure that the steps she took with me were helping me to achieve my goals and was always clear about what I wanted to focus on. Most importantly, I found the sessions worked! Using the techniques Sam taught me have found I am now able to relax around food, question whether I need food or something else at that time and whether what I am about to eat is the best thing I could eat at that moment. So I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Sam and her program to others.

Louise, Nottingham, May 16 2014

I’m currently still in therapy with Sam, I’ve tried hypnotherapy and many other avenues for what I am suffering with, Sam suggested with my hypnotherapy to try Reiki , since we combined the two my confidence level has been going strength to strength I have been able to complete simple tasks like days out with my family, exercise and making my everyday life simpler. I suffer from toilet phobia and would suggest to anyone don’t suffer in silence from anything just because you don’t understand alternative therapies doesn’t mean they don’t work. Sam has and is still having a major effect on my life and I thank her for that ! X

Chris, Nottingham, May 14 2014

I have been suffering with insomnia for well over a year, with all the associated health issues, such as irrational behaviour, intolerance and paranoia – not to mention extreme exhaustion. I have endured disturbed sleep, with the symptoms progressively getting worse – waking up more and more times each night - sometimes as many as ten times. Having been diagnosed, my GP outlined my options. I decided, with some misgivings, to give hypnotherapy a try. I really thought it wouldn’t work – but decided it was better to give it a go rather than go straight onto tablets. I was referred to Samantha Culshaw-Robinson. What is particularly satisfying is that not only does Sam tailor her treatment to the individual, but more importantly has a holistic approach that is not wholly hypnotherapy. I am astounded how, with just a few visits, things have turned around. I am now regularly getting a full nights’ sleep. I am immensely grateful to Sam for her treatment, care and professionalism.

Richard, Nottingham, April 10 2014

I’ve suffered from chronic insomnia for over 20 years and during that time explored all the routes available via the NHS including sleeping pills, anti-depressants and out-patient stints at the sleep disorder clinic at the QMC without any improvements. The cause was identified as being psychological but a referral for CBT was rejected by the local trust as an unproven treatment. I was referred to Sam for hypnotherapy by my GP toward the end of 2013 as a private patient. The results have been amazing and made a real difference to the quality of sleep I’m getting. The initial sessions helped identify and deal with the root cause of my sleep problems. Follow up sessions have helped break and improve the bad sleep habits I’d picked up over the years and sleep has become something to look forward to rather than something to dread. Thanks to Sam’s treatments I no longer have problems sleeping, something I wouldn’t have thought I’d be able to say only a few months ago.

Lisa, Nottingham, February 18 2014

From the first session to the last I always felt extremely comfortable with Sam. I always left smiling, full of confidence after every session. I encourage anyone who is thinking of doing the sessions to go for it! You will not regret it. I have already dramatically changed my lifestyle and the way I eat, in just four sessions. Thanks so much to Sam!!

Claire, Nottingham, December 05 2013

I have struggled with my weight for over thirty years, trying diet after diet until I decided to try something new as I knew my health was just going to deteriorate further. I felt fairly positive about gastric band hypnotherapy before I met Samantha as I had previously been to a hypnotherapist many years ago for another problem and it had worked quite extraordinarily for me. I have just finished my 4-week course with Sam and have radically changed my eating habits. I no longer think about diets or dieting but just focus on eating small amounts of food very slowly and only when hungry. I’ve learned what triggers my desire for food and how to cope with it and learnt to stop eating when satisfied. I’ve lost over 8lbs during the past few weeks without really trying and feel confident that I can reach my goal weight slowly and steadily over the coming months. I’m also much less stressed and have learn the art of relaxation. I would certainly recommend Sam to anyone with a similar problem if they are prepared to fully commit to the programme. It may mean going back in time to visit and address possibly painful events and memories but Sam is very caring and I felt totally safe and comfortable at all times.

Karen, Leicester, November 14 2013

“Although excited at meeting Samantha and having hypnotherapy for the first time I was also very sceptical as to whether I could a) be hypnotised and b) lose weight using this ‘alternative’ therapy. I had been to various slimming clubs and lost weight over the years but after a while it had always gone back on again, plus a few more extra pounds into the bargain. I was an emotional eater – whatever the emotion – I ate! Now on ante-depressants and at my heaviest weight I summoned up the courage to try something different – and I can’t tell you enough how pleased I am that I did this. I had 4 sessions with Sam and have almost lost my first stone but more than that, Sam helped me to look back at the past, address the issues that were bringing me down, face them and let them go. I feel happier and more at peace with myself than I have for a long, long time. Thank you Sam. If you are considering giving this alternative therapy a try – please – go for it!
