I was at my wit’s end.
I was tired of annual bouts of depression that lasted for almost nine months of every year. I had experienced different types of therapies with psychiatrists and psychologists which all involved talking. A lot of talking. I was fed up with talking. I wanted to listen and change my way of thinking.
After a couple of hypnotherapy sessions with Sarah, I did exactly that.
It was like a light switched on. Instead of feeling guilt, shame and pain, I felt, and continue to feel, good. Long dead people from my past have stopped lurking in the shadows. They now cheer me on in full sunlight. My everyday efforts are celebrated. I’m happy and grateful to be alive.
My long-suffering partner doesn’t have to defend herself from my rages. Our house feels lighter and we make time for fun.
Life still has its challenges but they’re easier to confront when you’re not trying to sabotage yourself. I was ready for hypnotherapy. Definitely.

In my experience, Sarah’s work is miracle. Insurmountable panic and distress immediately subsided; replaced with peace and love. With gentleness and care, Sarah has helped me overcome great obstacles that I battled with for years. I’m so at peace because of her help.
I have often tried to change my life to try to feel different about things, but after a hypnotherapy session with Sarah I immediately feel different, and that makes my life different automatically. I’ve now had 6 or so sessions over a long period of time.
To me, Sarah is not just another mental health consultant; she inspires real change, deep inside, and the best way to explain that change is that life feels better, lots and lots better.
When I arrived for my first hypnotherapy session for pain with Sarah I was physically and emotionally exhausted from several years of living with chronic pain. Sarah was able to talk with me with genuine empathy, and insight into what I was going through. She provided a space that was calming and peaceful and I felt immediately at ease and safe with Sarah.
At the end of my hypnosis sessions I would leave with an overwhelming sense of peace, calm and hope. I found the self-hypnosis techniques that Sarah taught me to be easily applicable throughout my daily life, and they continue to be effective on a regular basis.
Sarah was instrumental in enabling me to change the way I relate to pain and suffering and her techniques have provided me with knowledge and confidence to face the challenges of life.
Over the past few months I have had a Hypnoenergetic Session, a Past Life Regression Session and then a Life Between Lives Session (LBL) with Sarah. I am still processing the wonderful information that came to me in these sessions and I am sure I will be for some time. My purpose in seeing Sarah was to find more clarification about my soul’s purpose in this lifetime.
Sarah is a professional in every sense of the word. She guided me through these sessions with integrity, sensitivity and a deep caring for my experience of these sessions. There were moments when I felt quite vulnerable and I could tell that Sarah sensed these moments. Her reassurance was comforting and added greatly to the wonderful experience of the sessions.
Sarah knew exactly what questions to ask at the appropriate time. She is genuinely gifted at knowing when to guide the past life regression session, and when to allow it to take it’s natural course. Her intuition guided the sessions so that answers to my deepest questions about my life were uncovered.
Over the past month or so since my sessions, I have felt a greater calm come over me. I no longer worry about things that are irrelevant to my life, and every day I am gaining a greater sense of self and a clearer vision of my reasons for being here in this lifetime. My extraordinary experience has renewed my faith in the wonderful spirit world that is with us always and guides us in so many ways. I now have a clear memory of my deep connection with the spirit world that I hold close to my heart, and I feel now I can move forward into the future with the sense of inner strength that comes with that connection.
I discovered Sarah’s website after reading Dr Michael Newton’s book Destiny of Souls; I’d always been fascinated by accounts of past lives, and when I happened across Dr Newton’s book I learned that LBL takes this to a whole other level. I was intrigued; I’d always believed in ‘soul mates’ and I was eager to understand this – and my own life – in more detail.
In 3 sessions with Sarah over several weeks, I experienced Hypnoenergetic Therapy, Past Life Regression Therapy, and Life Between Lives Spiritual Regression (LBL). After each session, I felt an overwhelming sense of calm and peace, combined with a renewed vitality – and in each case, more and more understanding of myself and who I am. The LBL session magnified that feeling immensely. There is quote attributed to Mark Twain that “the two most important days of your life are the day you are born, and the day you find out why” – I truly believe that I discovered the “why” in my LBL session with Sarah. In my Life Between Lives session, I discovered some of the members of my soul group, and the contracts set up between 3 of the key people in my life (including two people with whom I have “challenging” current relationships). I experienced some of the challenges of a past life, and why my soul has been given the body it has in this life – and how to work with my human body to progress.
I’ve experienced traditional counseling and therapy in the past to deal with challenging relationships and health concerns, and these 3 sessions with Sarah have helped me understand more about myself, and the challenges I have faced, than I ever have before. And the best thing is, I had all the answers myself – it was Sarah’s expert guidance that enabled me to access this information.
Sarah is a warm, friendly and very gifted hypnotherapist, and I’m so very grateful for the circumstances that led me to find her.
I would recommend Sarah to anyone who wants to go deeper into why they might be experiencing a particular problem.
Through my hypnotherapy sessions with Sarah, I was able to transform my perception of myself and my outlook on life. Before I discovered hypnotherapy I lacked self confidence and self esteem. I was not able to cope with stress easily and was quick to take a pessimistic view.
Sarah is professional, respectful and genuinely caring. Every session was completely relevant and committed to my needs. I always felt safe and relaxed, and there was a good balance between discussions and hypnosis. I always left the sessions having learned something insightful about myself as well as useful self-hypnosis techniques to cope with stress and anxiety.
The outcome of my hypnosis sessions with Sarah was above and beyond what I expected. Now when I am stressed or lack confidence, I have the ability to conduct myself in a more positive and productive way that I never imagined possible before.
I feel more in control of my emotional state and realised that when faced with stressful situations, I can make a conscious choice to be positive and confident, or to go down the old negative road. It is a very empowering feeling.
Everything I learned in my hypnotherapy sessions will be forever invaluable to me, and I will continue to use hypnosis as a form of relaxation, stress relief, and a boost to my self confidence.
I highly recommend hypnotherapy – after this experience I believe that it can benefit everyone and anyone in some way.
Thank you for everything Sarah!
After being introduced to Michael Newton’s books on Past Lives and Life Between Lives and the associated hypnotherapy regression techniques, I decided that I wished to explore these aspects of myself as part of my continuing journey of inner discovery.
Sarah facilitated both sessions.
The results were amazing and astounding beyond any expectation. Words are quite inadequate to describe the depth of my experiences and the innate knowing and understanding that flowed both during the two journeys and since then. I have obtained a far greater understanding of myself, my soul’s purpose, my life contracts and friends. And the wisdom that has been imparted has left me with a profound sense of gratitude.
I now have a far greater appreciation for my soul, my body, my life and my role in this game of life and without hesitation I attribute this to Sarah’s guiding professionalism. She is a beautifully balanced professional in her field and conducted the regression sessions in a safe supporting environment. She deftly moved the topic on after each question had been addressed or the area under investigation fully explored. At all times she allowed the journey to unfold in an entirely natural fashion at a completely natural pace fully allowing any interaction to be completed. Thank you Sarah.
I can recommend Sarah to anyone who wishes to explore these areas of their being and feel that whoever treads this path with Sarah as their guide will be richly rewarded.
I admit at first to being a little skeptical that somebody other than myself could tell me about my own Past Life and Life Between Lives experiences. But from the moment I met Sarah I felt at ease and in the hands of a professional.
I decided to set aside my skeptic and just see what would come up.
Sarah got me to a place of such deep relaxation whilst still being awake and present. I never felt put upon, on the contrary she facilitated a deeply personal experience that arose from my own hidden depths simply by asking me the right questions.
She was always respectful of my process, asking questions that got insightful answers and never pushing too far. When it did get a little too intense she had the appropriate tools to hand and safety mechanisms in place to get me back to a safe equilibrium surprisingly quickly.
What I saw and felt with Sarah’s compassionate and skilled guidance has answered many unsolved questions around relationships, personal outlooks and the way I move through the world in my currant life. It has opened me up to the possibilities of a far greater connected life, one with richer meaning and has awakened in me a deeper trust in the process of Being.
I would highly recommend Sarah to anyone whether they have questions large or small to be answered.
I hadn’t quite known what to expect or how it worked but was immediately at ease with the beautiful and serene space you work in and your calm, empathetic, attentive and gentle approach. After each hypnosis session I left feeling uplifted, aware and incredibly relaxed. I have been so pleased with the improvements and progress on the issues I chose to work on.
The Past Life Regression was an incredible, illuminating and safe journey that gave me the opportunity to remember and observe important past events and connect to their revealing information or the message to my current situation.
I really felt I was giving myself a gift with these sessions. A gift of attention, growth and self-development and deeper connection with my inner self.
I would recommend hypnotherapy to anyone as an empowering and viable healing treatment for a variety of health issues.
Thank you for your support and for paving my road to success.
I have been suffering with the chronic pain of Fibromyalgia for 25 years. I have tried and tested numerous methods of coping with the limitations it has placed on my life, both medical and alternative.
I have been on a spiritual journey that really benefits my life for over seven years. During this time I saw a doctor who prescribed drug treatment that actually helps me.
Last year I began hypnotherapy with Sarah Ivens. I approach all treatments with an open mind, willing to give all my energy to anything that will relieve my pain. The first session I met with Sarah at her Hypnotherapy clinic in Sydney, but all sessions since then have been on Skype. This works extremely well, providing the necessary closeness without any detrimental effect.
I am finding extraordinary benefits from hypnotherapy.
When my pain is so severe that I can’t function I used to go to bed for a few weeks and just lie there hoping the rest will rejuvenate me. I don’t give in easily. I’m a fighter.
Now I am aware when my pain threatens to overtake my mind and my body that a brief check in will result in restoring my energy and vitality. With the help of my sessions with Sarah and the techniques she has taught me I can feel the pain, say hello to it and then get on with something else. The pain’s still there, but my mind is not fixated on it, so I don’t let it become the only thing of which I am aware at that time.
My spiritual journey is teaching me to stay present every moment of the day and this goes so well with the hypnotherapy techniques.
It’s about changing the way my brain deals with pain signals. If my brain is not totally fixated on the pain signals I am able to focus on something else. This is having an amazing effect on my daily life. It feels like the pain is taking a back seat. There is a light at the end of the tunnel!
Sarah is very professional and I have confidence in her methods and respect for her knowledge.
I’m truly blessed to have found her.
I was searching for answers, through different channels of my own – ways to connect to my deeper subconscious mind, after being given a book by Dr Brian Weiss on Past Life Regression hypnotherapy. I had read others on the subject, but this one seemed to tie everything together nicely, and I wanted to know more about my own past lives and their influence on my current life. I sought out Sarah through a friend who had had Past Life sessions with Sarah that were beneficial for him, and he found that Sarah was a really good clinical hypnotherapist.
As soon as I met Sarah she had me feeling completely at ease and comfortable, she explained everything that I needed to know to make it a comfortable and reassuring process, while dispelling any myths or concerns I might have had.
Initially I had some difficulties getting clear messages, however Sarah was fantastic at facilitating and assisting me to pass these obstacles, allowing me to progress forward, which I found incredibly helpful. I had an amazing first session.
I subsequently went on to have further sessions of great depth, which provided further insight into understanding myself. The insights that I have gained would not have been achievable in my mind without Sarah as a clinician and facilitator in the process. I believe it is important to understand that everyone gets something different from hypnotherapy. I was looking for answers to things, and found totally unexpected insights that I hold as incredible, and I am extremely grateful to Sarah for helping me to achieve this.
My insights have led me to head overseas in search of further information and experience, as a result of what I gained through Past Life Regression hypnotherapy. I believe it to have been an incredibly beneficial and pivotal life moment. I understand that not everyone is in the position of being able to travel overseas to further explore, but I know that the insights I gained through the experience of Past Life Regression therapy have been motivation enough for me to take this giant step.
