Laura Duffy Dip Hyp CS, Dip Pc
Hi, my name is Laura and I started my practice in 2014. I am based in Dunstable, Bedfordshire and my passion is helping people who suffer with depression and anxiety, having personal experience with both. I enjoy finding new and creative ways of helping people to find their happiness and be at one with themselves.
We are all different and as such all need a different approach, we are not broken and certainly do not need fixing. We can all at some point need someone to talk to about an imbalance in our lives and by using various techniques proven to be effective you will be able to find that balance and achieve the life you want to live not only now but also in the future.
I offer various tools & techniques tailored to you as well as Hypnotherapy i offer Counselling & EFT, whilst these therapies may not be for you there are certainly tools we can borrow from them to give you as many tools as possible.
Taking the first step of looking for help is often the hardest, as a society we often wait until we feel bad enough to go for therapy. The test to assessing if we need help is are we happy? if the answer is no then we need to change something in our lives. If you feel that there is something holding you back from being happy then get in touch today?

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
I am also trained in EFT (emotional Freedom Technique) which can be used as a stand alone therapy or with Hypnotherapy as a great way to achieve your goals.
I am a registered Hypno-Band practitioner, as seen on Channel 4's Embarrassing Fat Bodies please contact me if you would like to know more information on this powerful weight loss technique.

I offer a tailored approach to Therapy using a combination of techniques from Psychotherapy, Counselling and Hypnotherapy. There is no 1 approach fits all we are all unique individuals and therefore should be treated as such. The great thing about any therapy is in its flexibility, if a certain technique is not showing the results you would like there are many more that may prove to be more successful.
