Welcome to
Sarah Thomson Hypnotherapy

My clinic is based on our beautiful farm just outside Maxton in the Scottish Borders. 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.  

About Me

Before I qualified as a Clinical Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapist, I spent 16 years in education - 7 years as a primary school teacher, 7 years as a Depute Head Teacher and latterly an 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.


I live on a farm just outside St Boswells with my husband Bill, my son Donnie and our menagerie of animals.


When I'm not with clients I love catching up with friends and family, long lunches and dog walks.

Sarah Thomson - Hypnotherapist
Where to start when talking about the greatness of Sarah! In all honesty Sarah is like a magician but as she will tell you and remind you in sessions which I love, her work is all based in science.  This makes it all the more reassuring for me.

I've been working with Sarah for some months now, my problems have been pretty deep, many years of build up and she is healing me on such a deep level.  When we first started working together things were very bad and my mental health was suffering so much that I couldn't leave the house!  I am now able to.  I honestly didn't see a future and Sarah has enabled me to regain my life.

Her work is science based, methodical, consistent and thorough, but mostly Sarah is the most patient, calming, lovely person you'll ever meet.  I felt hopeless when I first started having sessions with her and now I have hope.

Thank you Sarah for everything you do!
