Welcome To Sarah Thomson Hypnotherapy!

My name is Sarah and I am Clinical Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapist.

I run clinics in Galashiels and Edinburgh.  I also offer online sessions via Zoom so distance is not an issue!

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (SFH) is a forward thinking and positive form of psychotherapy, which is combined with hypnosis. It uses modern, well researched strategies to help people make positive changes in their lives. SFH is designed to reduce anxiety and calm the mind. During sessions we don’t dwell on the past, we focus on what you want the future to look like.

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy  can help with many different conditions.  I’ve listed some below, however if your condition is not listed please get in touch, I may still be able to help!

  • Anxiety
  • Low mood
  • Panic Attacks
  • Weight Loss
  • Insomnia and disrupted sleep
  • Grief
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
  • Smoking Cessation
  • Work Performance
  • Sports Performance
  • Fears
  • Phobias

Before I qualified as a Clinical Hypnoptherapist and Psychotherapist, I spent 16 years in education, originally as a primary school teacher and latterly as a Depute Head Teacher and Acting Head Teacher in Edinburgh. I loved every minute of my previous career but due to changing circumstances in my life and relocating to the gorgeous Scottish Borders, I felt it was time for a change.

I trained with the prestigious Clifton Practice for my diploma in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy and I can honestly say it’s the best thing I’ve ever done.  I have an absolute passion for helping people and love working with adults and children from as young as 7 years old.  To see people make such great progress overcoming issues in their lives and leaving therapy happy, confident and where they want to be brings me so much joy.


“Sarah has helped me so much, making a huge impact to absolutely every aspect of my day to day life, the way I think and look at things. I had a huge change in circumstances and I was struggling so much to grasp any sort of control of my thoughts, feelings and anxiety, and after 9 sessions with Sarah I honestly feel like a new person. Being able to notice my behaviours and think them through practically and apply them to everything has gave me a new lease of life. I’ve never felt more content, at ease and in control! Absolutely incredible at what she does and makes you feel so calm!!  Thank you so much!!!”


“I have worked with Sarah over a number of sessions to help with anxiety around public speaking. The initial zoom consultation put me greatly at ease and I had no qualms about continuing my treatment with her. The audio clip she sends gave me great continuity between sessions to help me relax. With Sarah’s help I have made so many positive steps and am far more confident and I cannot recommend her services highly enough.”


“Sarah has helped me so much working through a shopping addiction and has also motivated me in growing my business.  I feel like my brain is finally working in the right manner and I can make wise decisions in my life.  Thank you Sarah for all your support.
