Welcome! I'm delighted you've found your way here. 😊

Let me introduce you to what this is all about:  it's about people having the best life possible. Something I am deeply passionate about.  Yes, it might sound like a cliché, but it's true—we only have one life, one brief time on the planet and I feel we owe it to ourselves to make the most of it.  Sometimes things get in the way and I have learnt there are ways we can smooth the path and greatly optimise our experience.   

Through gentle and effective therapeutic intervention,  enhancing our life and being happier is entirely within reach.  Cognitive Hypnotherapy and Coaching are incredibly effective tools for making a real difference.

About Sarah Pridham

I'm 52 and a devoted mother to two delightful children and a contented resident of Leigh-On-Sea, Essex.

Whilst I have had previous careers in the corporate world and sales, my true passion lies in personal growth and human happiness. Ever since I immersed myself in Daniel Goleman's book on Emotional Intelligence 25 years ago, I've been captivated by exploring methodologies that lead to a high quality of life and fulfilment.

My approach as a therapist/coach is grounded, empathetic, and light-hearted. I want my sessions to leave clients feeling lighter and reassured about the possibilities that lie ahead. 

I've trained with world leaders in the fields of coaching, Neuro Linguistic Programming and Hypnotherapy and I have done extensive personal development work myself. I feel truly lucky to have found my way to a place in life where I am present, happy and grateful for my existence!

Really when you get to the heart 💗 of it I just don’t want anyone to suffer in life and I am a champion of people!


I have trained with Trevor Silvester, the Founder of Quest Cognitive Hypnotherapy and have completed a Diploma in Cognitive Hypnotherapy (National Council for Hypnotherapy, Hypnotherapy in Practice Diploma) . I am a Master Practitioner in NLP (Neuro-linguistic programming) which I have studied with both its creator Richard Bandler as well as at the Quest Institute. I have also trained with Paul McKenna and Michael Neill. I spent 13 years undergoing personal development and coaching within Landmark Education's renowned empowerment programmes.


  • Sarah is an incredibly talented hypnotherapist and was able to understand exactly how my mind was responding to some of the interactive elements, I felt incredibly understood and appreciated how intuitive she is. If you're secretly nervous about networking, you'll definitely come away from this with a new perspective.
  • I just wanted to say thank you for the zoom session today, It was truly interesting and inspiring! I’m excited to put everything I learned into action. Thank you so much for your wonderful guidance and for being so lovely throughout the call!
  • Sarah's session on Impostor Syndrome was fantastic. Not only was it great to understand a bit more about what might be driving my imposter syndrome, but to walk away with several useful tools to use in networking scenarios was priceless. Sarah herself was friendly and engaging; she made a complex subject matter easy to access and made me feel like I wasn't the only one struggling with this! Thanks so much Sarah - this was a game changer.
  • I had a workshop with Sarah today and the only word that comes to mind is wow! She is so passionate about helping people find their voice. Her energy rubs off on you. 😀 She explains things so clearly and the tasks are very thought provoking. I've come away with a strapline explaining what I offer and a new passion to go out there and tell everyone about what I do! 100% highly recommend Sarah's workshop
  • I recently attended an online workshop with Sarah from Happy Life Hypnotherapy focusing on building confidence in businesswomen, and it was an absolute game-changer for me. Her passion and dedication in helping people just shines through her whole being. She provided me with invaluable guidance in crafting a professional statement I can use at networking events. Before attending, I was struggling to articulate what I do in a way that truly stood out, and it certainly didn’t have the wow factor. With her expert guidance, I found clarity and confidence like never before. I feel my statement now truly reflects my passion and expertise and will also resonate deeply with my target audience. The workshop was not only informative but also deeply empowering. Sarah’s approach is refreshingly uplifting and positive. She also combines little calming techniques that are very effective in resetting the body. I highly recommend Sarah and this workshop to any businesswoman looking to elevate their confidence and clarity in communicating their professional identity. I know feel more confident than ever to share my magic.
  • Thank you so much for today. I haven’t actually had time to digest all of it. But what I can say is that your words are just whirling around in my head, I can’t think of anything else! I can see (already) some small but big impacting changes I can make. Some other changes will take time, BUT, the biggest message I got from today was “be kind to me” and I get it. You are a very empowering woman. One I’m incredibly grateful to have met. 😘😘😘😘😍
  • I approached Sarah feeling overwhelmed and uncertain about my marriage and future. In just one session her coaching provided me with a newfound clarity and insight, instilling hope where I had previously felt disheartened. Her empathetic and empowering approach not only helped me gain perspective and clarity but also prompted a significant shift in my mindset. I left our session equipped with a new effective communication style that has sparked realisations for both my husband and myself. Our future feels back on track, and I'm filled with a renewed sense of happiness and optimism.  
  • It's really quite extraordinary how this works. My issue is resolved and I'm just in a new normal. It's so unconcious. I highly recommend Sarah; her level of tailoring the process to me and exactly how my brain works was so evident. It felt like we were in it together and the level of support was just incredible.  
  • Sarah is a phenomenal therapist and coach. She really makes me feel like she’s on my team and wants what’s best for me. Her enthusiasm for my mental health improvement was exceptional and I felt very safe being vulnerable with her. The techniques, tools and personalised meditation recordings really helped, and I’m now feeling much better within myself and I am looking forward to a more positive future. I would highly recommend Sarah to anyone looking for a therapist or coach.
  • I have never felt so understood in my life!  
  • Sarah helped me so much, I’m forever grateful. It really does go in, almost without you knowing, and gives you the tools when those anxious feelings arise. It’s hypno magic! The therapy has helped me to let go and be confident again.
