Hello, I’m Sue Wilson and I run Bedford Health and The Bedford Hypnotherapy Clinic. I’ve been offering therapy and training since 2005, helping people of all ages deal with emotional, behavioural and thinking issues. Those issues cause Fears, Phobias, Anxiety, Depression and a wide variety of unwanted thoughts and behaviour.
I can also show you how to lose weight, stop smoking or increase your self confidence, (personal or professional).
In fact you’ve definitely come to the right place because I am perhaps Bedfordshire’s busiest and best known therapist, having spent the past 14 years in full-time practice, from professional, confidential offices, in the centre of Bedford.
I specialise in working quickly (I don’t do any long-term therapy…I don’t need to) and work one-to-one with you to deal with your problems sympathetically and in a way that best suits your needs and goals.
The three main routes you can go down to be free from your problems and symptoms are;
‘Suggestion Therapy’ which is the use of hypnosis plus suggestions for positive changes to thoughts and behaviour. It is used for short-term issues (exams, tests etc), for habits such as nail biting and for my Stop Smoking, Relaxed Eating and Relaxed Childbirth programmes.
Psychotherapy or Hypnoanalysis which helps you to resolve emotional issues and conflicts in a gentle, drug-free way. Allowing your mind to sort out issues in your past which are affecting you today.
A way to let go of emotion and put your past where it belongs…behind you. Then you can feel whole again, either symptom-free or so reduced it doesn’t affect you in the same way any more. These two are essentially the same therapy; one with, one without hypnosis.
‘The Relaxed Living Programme’ which is a mixed therapy approach, which may include Applied Psychology with Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Eye Movement Desensitation and Reprogramming (EMDR), Hypnotherapy and common sense!
We’ll work out a programme to suit your needs and issues. Looking at the way you think, at your habits and learning new ways of thinking. New, more helpful behaviours to begin to live a healthy, happy and successful life.
Children as young as 7 years of age and people as old as late 80’s have successfully overcome phobias, anxiety, depression, low self confidence, overeating, alcohol and drug abuse, plus much more, with these techniques.
I have also created programmes which have been designed to help you address very specific problems such as Weight Loss, Relaxed Childbirth, Alcohol over-use and Alcoholism, Professional Confidence and Children’s problems.
Over the years, as an established professional practice, I have successfully helped 100’s of people with fears, phobias, anxieties, depression and panic attacks as well as stress and anxiety-related problems, weight loss, confidence, social anxiety, pain-free childbirth as well as helping children and young adults overcome emotional difficulties.
I have successfully been through therapy, to deal with a phobia, anxiety, depression and low self-confidence…that’s when I decided to retrain as a therapist. Which means I know what it’s like to go through therapy AND more importantly what it really feels like to resolve emotional issues that can control your life.
You no longer need to put up with that out of control feeling because I will help you take control and stay in control of your life once and for all
Contact Sue today…just call, text or email. Even this small step could help you to feel more in control of your life
Reporter Hayley O’Keeffe writes about how hypnosis saved her from a lifetime of catching the bus.
I failed my driving test six times, there I said it.
Aged 28 this was not a good thing for me, learning to drive was something I felt I should have done a lot, lot sooner, but as circumstances dictated it just never quite happened. I’ve had plenty of lessons mind you, and whenever I had any spare money would spend it on intensive courses to try and get myself that illusive pink card. But to no avail, when it came down to actually doing the test I was just so nervous. I’ve had tests where the examiner has grabbed the steering wheel, where I’ve travelled in second gear down Bedford’s London Road, and where I’ve (almost) gone the wrong way around a roundabout. If I’ve ever cut you up I’m very sorry, I was just nervous! I’ve had some great tuition too, from the ever patient Gerard Doyle of Drive Johnsons, he has had to put up with a lot I can tell you. Part of it must be to do with my age, the 17-year-olds just hop in and get going, but I think it was predominantly my mindset. I’ve always been the passenger in the car, and have never really been interested in motoring, super cars and especially not Top Gear! Being behind the wheel seemed like an alien world and was more than a little scary. So that’s where Sue Wilson came in.
Sue works at Bedford Health in St Cuthbert’s Street and is a hypnotherapy practitioner, what's more she offers a special pre-driving test session to help candidates get over their nerves and achieve focus. I booked my seventh driving test, and after much deliberation a session with Sue, would this help me pass my test once and for all? The fateful day arrived and I headed to Bedford Health for the hour long session.
Part of me thought that this would be just the ticket, another hoped that I wouldn’t come out of the treatment room quacking like a duck! But hypnotherapy is nothing like the myths. In a consultation Sue asked me just how anxious I felt about the test, what I was most concerned about and what I wanted to feel like when I was doing the test. And after the hour, which was very relaxing indeed, I came out feeling focused and ready for the test, in a way I have never felt before. And do you know what? Later that afternoon, when the examiner turned to me and said you’ve passed I was so excited, because hypnotherapy, and a little perseverance really does work!

I have now lost 3 stone, which is kinda unbelievable
I’ve lost 10lbs in the last 4 weeks and I’ve had no problems, I’ve listened to the CD once a day. The Relaxed Eating Programme is very easy to follow; I’ve had no cravings, and I feel great.
I’ve lost 10lbs in the last 4 weeks and I’ve had no problems, I’ve listened to the CD once a day. The Relaxed Eating Programme is very easy to follow; I’ve had no cravings, and I feel great. I now naturally make the right food choices that are good for me without giving it any thought, and I manage my food portions, listening to my body and know when I have had enough to eat and do not feel I have to finish what is on the plate, just because its there
I feel more relaxed, calm, more at ease, you gave me that push. I had to take in my favourite pair of trousers by a couple of inches. I've stopped picking and am thinking about food differently.
Hi Sue, I'm 12st 3 and still dropping! I have now lost 3 stone which is kind of unbelievable! Thank you so much
I have now lost 1.5 stone, which I am truly delighted with! Thank you for all your help
I've lost 23.5lb since starting! Now weight 8st 9lb
Thanks Sue ... The Relaxed Childbirth Programme helped me stay calm and enjoy the birth, which I really did, and I have been very happy and have coped very well upon returning home. Everyone commented on how well I looked and I was out and about the next day doing my shopping!
Hi, Don't know if you remember me but on 28th January this year I came to see you for hypnosis to stop smoking. I can report that I have not had another cigarette since that morning and that for me is remarkable, I was a 30+ per day smoker for 40 years and I just want to say thank you so much - you may have saved my life!! Thanks again
Hi I want to let you know that I am a non smoker, I feel great and I am free from the habit that was like a ball and chain round my ankle! I can’t believe that in one session with you my life has been transformed, and it’s a long while since I have felt so well in myself. I didn’t want to contact you too soon as I was afraid of being complacent and then falling off the wagon so to speak, however I feel as though I have never smoked in my life – incredible. I am certainly not eating any more that I did before, in fact have lost a couple of pounds so there we have it. Brilliant! Thank you so very much
I just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you for helping me stop smoking. It was my one month 'anniversary' on friday and since our session I have not looked back. It's funny - sometimes I forget I ever even smoked at all! Thanks again!
I'm very impressed ... I haven't given in! I feel better in myself and for the baby ... I would recommend it to other mothers who smoke.
Hi, I would just like to say many thanks for turning me into a non smoker I have just achieved my first set milestone for myself, being a non smoker for a month. With the extra money I bought myself a tablet computer. Also I would like to say that my breathing when cycling has become a lot better easier initially it was painful but to be expected as my lungs were getting fresh air. Family have been sceptical about it working but all are pleased with the progress I am making towards a smoke free future. It's also great to know that I will be smoke free for when my baby arrives. Thank you once again
Hi, I did not want to email too early but I am proud to say that both my mum and I are still non smokers. It was 60 days on Monday (26th March 2012) 2 FULL calendar months! We still cannot believe that we ever smoked and feels like we stopped 2 years ago. Many thanks for the wake up call! We feel more full of life, happier, healthier and richer as a result. I would recommend this method to anyone.
Since stopping smoking in September, not only have I felt better and been healthier ... BUT richer! I now do things on time not after my fag
