Iain Lawrence

About me

My name is Iain Lawrence and  I am a Clinical hypnotherapist,  I believe in employing an empathetic compassionate approach and working collaboratively with the client to find the appropriate solution for them. I am resuming to seeing clients face to face again and adhering to strict infection control procedures,  I also am continuing to offer offer Skype , and WhatsApp appointments for a discounted rate per session. Hypnotherapy lends itself perfectly to using these applications.  If you are unsure about Hypnotherapy and have questions then please get In touch for free as due to my health background I have a wide ranging experience of a range of problems.  I am registered with the National Council of Hypnotherapy ( NCH) and Complimentary Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) .

In the current climate due to the financial pressures the majority of people are under I am  offering a flat rate of £30 per session for one hour for an online session and 20% off all face to face sessions. I believe in working ethically at all times and constant review people's progress to ensure they are getting the most out of their appointments. I believe the client dictates the pace and how many appointments they require.

In my practice, I am qualified to work with a range of problems from Anxiety and Depression which Is a particular speciality of mine from my background in Mental Health to Phobias and Addiction. I also treat Confidence Issues, Weight Management, , and Chronic Pain. I believe that the mind can be used to overcome any issue no matter how chronic the problem is and often we know ourselves what we need to do overcome the problem but just lack the catalyst to do so.

If you have ever been curious as to what a typical Hypnotherapy appointment involves then please check out the video near the bottom of this page. In the video, I give a condensed version of what happens in a Hypnotherapy appointment from the initial assessment to the trance stage and the end of the appointment review.

I purposefully take the time to tailor the care to the specific needs of the individual as every person has a unique experience of their problem and using a strengths based approach to find a solution. I know that it can be a daunting experience even contacting a therapist for the first time, but after 14 years in Nursing I am well trained at putting people at ease no matter how apprehensive they are .

I am also trained in employing Neuro Linguistic Programming Techniques and Emotional Freedom Therapy ( tapping).  Prior to qualifying as a Hypnotherapist I worked for many years as a Mental Health Professional within the NHS treating people with a wide variety of Psychiatric Diagnosis and often people whose physical health had been compromised to. I havea akeen personal interest in different approaches for Anxiety.

Hypnotism is a very enjoyable pleasant experience and what I do is very different from stage hypnotism that you see on TV and at no point are you ever "not in control" you can come out of Hypnosis any time you wish though often people will remain in trance for a few seconds longer than the appointment as it such a relaxing activity and I will also provide a self hypnosis recording for you to listen to in your own time .

If you would like to find out more then please get in touch by phone or email both addresses are listed here and  I would be more than happy to answer any questions you may have about hypnotherapy and how it could help with your particular issue. I also offer a discount to NHS staff, members of the armed forces.

Areas of hypnotherapy I deal with

Information about health conditions (*)

Hypnotherapy can enhance the well-being of individuals diagnosed with serious medical conditions, but should not take the place of medical treatment and advice. If you have been diagnosed with - or suspect you may have - any of these conditions, please speak to your doctor before starting hypnotherapy.

Other areas of hypnotherapy I deal with

Extensive clinical knowledge for the characteristics of a range of mental health conditions.  I think initially coming along to an appointment is very daunting for some people but with my nursing background I am adept at putting people at ease.  As well as hypnotherapy I am also trained in Emotional Freedom Technique (Tapping) and NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming)

Recent Testimonials

"Iain is a highly skilled professional who showed an empathetic approach to my issues. He listened keenly and used several techniques such as " tapping " and Hypnotherapy to enable me to take control of my anxiety. He also allowed me to identify certain personality traits which were enhancing my anxiety. With his support and techniques, I have been able to relax and be at peace with myself. On one occasion I was tearful emotional and distressed. By the end of the session, I felt positive calm and in control. Thank you, Iain. I would highly recommend him and I am grateful to him. " Julie, East Kilbride.

" I have suffered from a fear of blood and needles for over 30 years. Over the years the fear of how the phobia made me feel became scarier than the actual phobia itself. I managed the phobia by avoiding situations that would set it off. I secured a new job and as part of the training had to undergo an intense first aid course which dealt with gunshot and stab wounds. I was sceptical of hypnotherapy but was desperate for help with this issue. I had two sessions with Iain followed up with a recording to listen to at my leisure. The course began and almost immediately graphic images were shown worse than I expected but I remained calm and realised after a short while that the usual faint feeling had not been triggered. I was then able to go through an intense 8 hour course seeing multiple videos of horrific injuries without fainting which was quite simply hard to believe. The therapy I received undoubtedly allowed me to place myself in a situation and calmly and confidently see things and hear things which before would have triggered a fainting feeling. Thanks, Iain for this." Tom, Glasgow
