"All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players: They have their exits

Creativity and Hypnosis

Symantha's Talking Therapy

and their entrances, And one man in his time plays many parts"

 – William Shakespeare

Sitting harmoniously alongside my issue-based therapy work is the work I do with actors, directors, writers, painters, and dreamers. 

These sessions are for people who already work with that creative, intuitive part of their being and benefit from using bespoke guiding narrative (hypnosis) to deepen their creative understanding, access creative resources to find answers to solutions or simply to help when they feel “stuck”.

Because we all get stuck sometimes, even the most creative among us

One-to-one creativity session

Symantha's Talking Therapy

To help you catch those elusive ideas, just at the corner of your conscience.

"Genius is 1% inspiration and 99% Perspiration"

Edison spoke from the reality of his lived experience. 

It is true. In the vast majority of cases, there is no point in knowing what we want to achieve without being prepared to do what it takes to get us there. 

It is all very well having great ideas but the high achiever has to put in the hours and the leg work for an idea to become reality.

Even so, without the light bulb moment, or ability to keep your creative juices pumped along the way, great ideas can be left on the wayside. 

Safe and confidential.

In the one-to-one creativity session we work together to access that creative part of you to uncover answers, possibilities and new paths of exploration. 

This is a totally unique and bespoke service where hypnosis is utilised creatively to access your imagination to help you get unstuck, start a new project or deeply explore an idea that you have had floating around but have been unable to pin down.

So, for example, if you have writer’s block, or are finding it impossible to come up with a creative idea for an advertising campaign deadline we could use hypnosis to open up doorways to possible options.

The one-to-one creativity session lasts 90 minutes conducted via Zoom or in-person at my therapy room. The cost is £65.00 and that will include a preliminary 15 minute chat via Zoom ahead of the session to address any questions. 

group character creation workshop

Symantha's Talking Therapy

A group session to help actors create real, believable character.

"Acting is behaving Truthfully under Imaginary Circumstances."

Sanford Meisner’s famous quote says it succinctly.

This workshop is designed to help actors access that core of truth to support the building and creation of 360˚ characters that are believable and able to communicate their truth to audiences.

The workshop does not advocate any particular acting method because it works in its own right and as an adjunct to any preference the actor has.

It dove-tails perfectly with any acting style because although I facilitate the experience, it is your own mind and imagination doing the work.

Give your Production the Edge.

This is a 3-hour workshop for up to 15 actors and conducted via Zoom or in person if you are local.

In the workshop you will learn a bit about hypnosis, or guiding narrative, enjoy a 30 minute hypnosis session and doing non-specific script work with the character you are working on to build upon and flex any discoveries following the hypnosis. 

The objective of the workshop is to help actors create believable characters and to give them and their directors a tool to come away with that they can use in future. 

The Online Actor’s Character Creation Workshop costs £250.00.

In person the Actor’s Character Creation Workshop costs £400.00 and is for up to 20 people.

Mind Matters


It seems an obvious thing to say but our minds really do matter. 

Over the last month or year, how often have you given yourself the time, space, and quiet to really focus on the part of you that houses your conscious thoughts and your subconscious programming? 

Investment in self-care is essential to supporting our physical, spiritual, social, and psychological well-being.

Invest in you!

A great workout session in the gym maintains your physical health and boosts your mental well-being. A facial can leave your skin glowing, and make you feel good. A few beers with the guys can lift your spirit and momentarily take you away from your stresses and time out with a good book or great film can provide a temporary escape from present worries. 

But I’m talking about committed self-investment by giving yourself the time and space to take a deep dive into “self” and to challenge some of the subconscious programs that run via automated electrical impulses that fire through your brain and body. The things that make you do the things you do. Even the things you wish you didn’t!

This is vital if you want to make lasting and meaningful changes in your life. 

We humans are fantastic, complex, and awe-inspiring bundles of energy served by the 86 billion neurons residing in our brains. To put that number into perspective 86 billion seconds is equal to 2,727 years.  86 billion millimetres equals 53, 440 miles! THAT is how big that number is. 

we are amazing!

Every one of us has possession of that awesome piece of kit. We are better and more remarkable than any smartphone. Yet we spend more time looking at and trawling through our mobiles than we ever do exploring our own inner world. 

Personal therapy provides the time, space, and guidance to look inward and carefully uncover the potential origins of your thoughts, feelings, and behaviours, to understand them and then, and this is the really exciting part, change, redesign or even totally eradicate old unhelpful patterns and behaviours. Hypnosis can help speed the process of change up, and when we change, the world changes!
