Having retired from primary school teaching due to ill health, Laura discovered hypnotherapy as a way to overcome the chronic pain, anxiety and depression associated with Endometriosis and Fibromyalgia. She was amazed at the difference she could make to her own well-being. This inspired Laura to research into hypnotherapy and she went on to study with Adam Eason at the Anglo European School of Clinical Hypnosis. She graduated with a Hypnotherapy Practitioner’s Diploma (HPD) and a diploma in Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) and now specialises in helping with anxiety and pain management. Laura is a member of the National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH) and the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC).
Laura uses a combination of hypnotherapy, NLP and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy to help her clients. She believes that the relationship between the client and therapist is very important and will do her utmost to ensure that you feel safe, confident and listened to. Every person is unique and will require an individual treatment plan depending on the issues that you identify as important. Contrary to popular belief, hypnosis is not about giving up control to the hypnotist, but actually about gaining control over your thoughts and feelings. It is a very empowering and enjoyable therapy.
