I'm an experienced Specialist Women's Cognitive Hypnotherapist and Coach who helps women to let go of unhelpful thoughts, emotions and behavioural problems and live happier and more fulfilling lives.
I use cognitive hypnotherapy to guide and support women with emotional problems such as low self-esteem, lack of confidence and stress which can lead to problems such as anxiety, panic attacks, infertility and IBS. I've also helped many women to overcome debilitating nerves and fears about medical procedures and childbirth and others to break free from cycles of overeating/comfort eating and food addictions to lose weight and grow in confidence.
Would you like to benefit from some guidance and support to gain more control of your life, either in your career or family life? I've helped previously nervous and tearful women to confidently say their wedding vows, do major speeches and presentations and take life-changing exams. I've also helped women who feel emotional because their children are growing up and becoming increasingly independent which leaves some mothers feeling stuck and uncertain of their new roles and how to move forward with their life.
I'm friendly, non-judgmental, easy to talk to and passionate about cognitive hypnotherapy and the fantastic transformation it can make to people's lives.
This isn't something that I "do" to you - it's a partnership, we'll be working together. I'm keen to use my experience and skills to guide you towards creating the life you're looking for but ultimately you're in control. My intention is to get you to where you want to be in the shortest time possible and will work to the best of my abilities to offer you an opportunity for lasting improvements to your whole life.
My 1-2-1 hypnobirthing sessions are tailor-made for each individual woman/couple to ensure that they are able to have the best birth experience possible. Women who have experienced a previous traumatic birth event or who experienced medical fears will find my sessions particularly helpful.

Laurie Harvey has an exceptional approach to her clients, which is both caring, understanding and specific to your needs. Her sessions are not on a time clock so you do not feel rushed but relaxed and supported. She expects 100% effort from you and I feel gives 200% in return. She is well educated and professional. She gives a very good explanation of why certain things can happen and how the brain does its best to protect us and how we can override certain problems. I have suffered from serious problems since I was 13 plus and suffered from self harm, depression and anxiety and what the Drs termed as nervous breakdowns several times. Laurie does not attach labels to you, and looks at the problems. I had 3 sessions with Laurie over several weeks and I felt ready to face the world. I will not hesitate to go for a top up or if I faced a challenge that I felt needed instant assistance as I feel after all these years I have someone I can now trust.
I immediately felt comfortable with Laurie. She is warm, friendly and non-judgemental. The experience of the sessions was very non-threatening, not distressing or upsetting at all. I felt safe and comforted. And most importantly, it worked!
My sessions with Laurie helped me understand and deal with a problem I had been struggling with for a long time. Laurie made me feel comfortable and at ease to talk in a non-judgmental environment, and I always went away from a session feeling so much more positive about everything.
I went to see Laurie Harvey because I was having panic attacks. I had seen someone about these before but I was still getting them and I was becoming desperate. When I went to see Laurie she was very patient and understanding and I felt completely relaxed with her. She helped me to understand, why I was feeling the way I was and, after a few visits, I realised that I was getting fewer panic attacks and was feeling much happier and more able to cope with everyday things, which I had been struggling with before.
I cannot think of anyone better to have guided and supported me when I was at such a low ebb and cannot praise Laurie enough for her help and support on my journey back to feeling strong and positive again in my life. She mixes true professionalism and knowledge with unique insight, kindness and a non-judgmental approach and I was amazed at how she so rapidly changed my way of thinking and provided me with the tools I needed to substantially improve my life. Not only does Laurie really know what she's doing but, above all, she really cares and goes the extra mile such as personalised MP3 recordings. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Laurie - and in fact already have. Thank you Laurie, a true friend and fantastic professional.
