Laurie Harvey - Specialist Women's Cognitive Hypnotherapist HPD, DipCHyp, MNLP
The Light Centre
114 London Wall
I'm an experienced Cognitive Hypnotherapist and Confident Women's Coach who helps women (including teenagers) to let go of unhelpful thoughts, feelings, emotions and behavioural problems and to achieve their goals and live happier and more fulfilling lives.
I'm a featured expert in The Telegraph and Independent School Parent Magazine.
I guide and support women through all kinds of problems such as stress, anxiety, IBS, lack of confidence and low self-esteem.
I also help women to lose weight and/or break free from food addictions (usually women who've been trying for many years using all the usual diets and clubs etc).
I help women to let go of Fears of medical/dental procedures, with fertility problems and to achieve confident childbirth.
Many of my clients are surprised at how easily and quickly they've been able to overcome crippling nerves and fears when faced with challenges such as public speaking, weddings, interviews and exams. 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'm friendly, non-judgmental, easy to talk to and passionate about cognitive hypnotherapy and the fantastic transformation it can make to people's lives. My intention is to get you to where you want to be in the shortest time possible and I'm committed to using my experience and skills to the best of my abilities to offer you an opportunity for lasting improvements.
As a fully trained Cognitive Hypnotherapist, a Master NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) Practitioner, Eye Movement Integration Practitioner, and Certified iPractitioner of EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) and other stand-alone therapies, I have an overview and the flexibility to tailor each treatment to every individual client and therefore results are often achieved more comfortably, easily and quickly than people expect.
I often provide bespoke mp3 recordings for my clients to listen to between appointments to consolidate the work done in sessions and to accelerate the improvements between meetings.
Here's what some of my clients have said about me:
"The sessions were amazing, I would go in feeling a little shy but at the end of the session I felt incredible."
"Laurie Harvey has an exceptional approach to her clients, which is both caring, understanding and specific to your needs."
"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."

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.
