Hello, and a very warm welcome to my website. Thank you for joining me here.

I am a certified Cognitive Hypnotherapist, NLP Master Practitioner, and Therapeutic Coach based in West Sussex. I work both face to face and online with adults, as well as with Young People (see the coaching tab for details of the 'Youth Booth'). I specialise in helping clients like you become unstuck by offering a safe and non-judgemental space where you can feel supported and heard. Utilising a variety of interventions and modalities, the root causes of the unconscious blocks we keep experiencing can gradually be dismantled so that you can move forward towards your desired outcome. Even when there is a feeling of complete overwhelm, this totally bespoke therapy can break down limiting beliefs by forming new, more positive neural pathways and open the door for life to start anew...

As part of my practice, I also utilise the benefits of AMDR (Applied Memory Deconsolidation and Reconsolidation) as well as Somatic Healing, Positive Psychology, Coaching and Goal Setting, and Mindfulness Techniques. All of these can dramatically help to shift trauma pockets that build from the things (both big and small) that we experience throughout life - keeping us almost frozen in time. Bereavement, Redundancy, Betrayal, Divorce, Bullying, Neglect, Emotional and Sexual Abuse and, quite often, something so inconsequential to the client that they cannot believe such a forgetful experience is where it all began.

There is a lot of information on this website about how this solution focussed therapy can help so have a good look around. If you like what you see, give me a call or send me an email. We can arrange a complimentary telephone consultation to discuss what you would like to be free of and if we are suitable to work together. Choosing the right therapist is paramount. You are far more likely to reach your desired outcome when you work with someone you have rapport with and this initial consultation can help to establish that.

I have Practices in Bosham and Chichester. Or, if location or time restraints are a factor, we can meet online over ZOOM. More details can be found on the ‘Contact me’ page.

I am fully insured and registered with the NCH and QCHPA. A copy of my insurance and registration details can be made available to you upon written request.

What my clients say

Practice hours for both face to face and online therapy;

Tuesday and Thursday 9am to 4pm

Wednesday 1pm to 8pm

My diary gets very full so having a consistent time-slot for us to meet may be required. We will usually plan our sessions for once a fortnight.

Online therapy can sometimes be accommodated outside of clinic hours.

A complimentary twenty-minute consultation can be arranged at a time to suit us both – either online or over the telephone. Please email me at sal@salgordon.com with some options and I will try my best to accommodate you.

Please note, I only work with clients who are committed to change and want to fully engage with the process. That way you get the best results in less time.

Please see the 'Sessions and Fees' tab for further information.
