 Find balance, move forwards and overcome barriers*.... 

thame life coaching

Hello, I'm Steph Clarkson, hypnotherapist, life coach, holistic healer and teacher  on all things mental wellness.... 

Many people arrive here at this screen when there’s something bothering them. Perhaps you’ve lived with an issue for years or perhaps a new situation is bringing up something that’s throwing you off balance. You’re really trying  but there’s just something about it that you can’t get past.

It’s as if there are two parts of you, one that knows the rational, sensible thing to do and the other that’s rebelling against it. For some people it's a habit from nail biting to overeating, for others it's a debilitating fear  or long term worry such as anxiety, inertia or stress.

Meet Steph in her welcome video...

working with me is a great fit if:

  • You want to learn better ways to work with your mind and emotions to resolve that thing that’s bothering you.
  • The idea of that subconscious ‘rebel’ helping rather than hindering sounds great!
  • You’re ready to drop what’s holding you back and start enjoying yourself more.

A little about me...


As a coach, holistic healer and hypnotherapist, I support people with day-to-day barriers to find balance, break habits and move forwards feeling calm, clear and confident.

After successful careers in both teaching and the arts, I retrained as a coach and therapist as  I wanted to give back to the world in an even more positive and meaningful way.

Too many people suffer unnecessarily as we have not been shown effective ways to manage our minds, energies and emotions.  I aspire to help educate and influence change in every client I work with the hope that it can send ripples to others, ripples that reduce suffering and make the world a happier, more peaceful place.

I work with adults and teens and only use the tools I've personally benefitted from during times of low confidence, stress, self esteem and fears. Everything we do on our journey together is tried,  tested and highly recommended. 



Let’s work together via:

  • 1-to-1 sessions tailored to your unique situation online or in person. 
  • Contact in between sessions to reflect on progress
  • Manageable home assignments and tasks to get you moving in the right direction
  • Hypnotherapy recordings and 1-to-1 hypnosis to reinforce the work subconsciously.

     Results may vary from person to person, see disclaimer below. 

Not ready for 1-to-1?

Check out my events page for upcoming group workshops, resources page for FREE self help resources or treat yourself to a little bit of wellness through the Ambient Collection online shop

You're ready for support if:

  • You know you’re ready to change, you can change and what needs to change is you
  • You’re interested in holistic approaches and are looking for a natural way to get past what's bothering you. 
  • You're willing to do work outside of sessions to support change to happen faster.

What people say...

I needed help as I was suffered from panic attacks and anxiety. I found that help through Steph. She gave me the tools I needed to feel in control of my life again through a combination of therapies including Mindfulness, Hypnotherapy and Meditation. Steph created a safe, friendly and comforting environment in which she offer me support and I left feeling inspired by her practices to take control of the panic attacks and anxiety

I enjoyed being able to talk and have someone listen and offer productive ways for me to deal with my issues and also the relaxation techniques. I am now able to recognise the feelings and apply the techniques before they really build up. I can take myself away from the situation and allow, yield and take some time to clear my head. I feel a good balance was offered through the session and I always left feeling positive, relaxed and able to move forward.
— Lee, Life coaching and anxiety client.
When I go and have “therapy” I am on the ceiling. ...Steph gently helps me get back onto the floor. I only have time for genuine people and I have found a place that I feel comfortable and genuine in Ambient......I can be my self and not judged. ..her whole soul is fabulous. In a world of full of yucky things I am so glad I have “therapy” times in my diary. Words are easy to write but overwhelming gratitude for how i feel when I have had a therapy session is not easy to put into words. Thank you Steph for being you
— Andrea, Barnsley
"The one major thing was the ability to speak to Steph impartially. Her outlook & calming nature really helped me to understand that I have no reason to feel guilty about wanting my own happiness. I also gained a great deal from the mindfulness sessions in the sense that I now spend 10 or 20 minutes each morning in preparation for my day and because of that I am able to think clearly and concentrate on the task in hand…I’ve found myself again. I look at everything so differently now & I no longer have anything to be scared of.” - Richard, Barnsley
