Laura Lohk Cognitive Hypnotherapist & Coach
Having been born and raised in a small country to a very poor family, I grew up without a father and my mother was hardly ever around. I have been bullied, slept under a coat in a charity shop as I had nowhere else to live or sleep, at times I have been without food and I have suffered with depression so challenges, stress and traumatic events are not new to me. At times I have felt like I don't have the strength to carry on because I lost hope. Yet there is always a way out to the other side.
?Despite of my difficult past, I moved to the UK alone at the age of 19 and found a way to study law and become solicitor.
?I started my career in law because I had the genuine desire to help people who had suffered owing to someone else’s wrongdoing. However, my day to day experience of life as a solicitor was different to what I had expected, and whilst I enjoyed my job, I realised that I wanted to do more to help people.
?I have been interested in complementary therapy for long time and like many other people nowadays, I tried various therapies until I attended a session with a Cognitive Hypnotherapist.
I loved that I was treated as an individual with a treatment plan tailored specifically around me. It really helped me to change how I felt about myself and I signed up for the course so I could become a therapist who makes a difference in people’s lives.
?I trained at the Quest Institute in London, under the founder of Cognitive Hypnotherapy, Trevor Silvester. I have also completed NLP Master Practitioner course at Quest Institute.

Training, qualifications & experience
I can’t thank Laura enough for the changes the hypnotherapy sessions have helped me to achieve.Laura tailored the sessions around my needs and focused on what I wanted to achieve. Laura has also sent me some recordings to listen ahead of stressful situations or to build my confidence which I frequently listen to.I am now able to deal with stress, anxiety, increase my confidence and build better relationships. I have really come to realise that your mind is amazing and anything really is possible with the right training and coaching.
I am qualified solicitor with management experience. It was during my career as a solicitor that I began to coach my team members to achieve their goals, support them with their day to day work and motivate them.
I then qualified as a Cognitive Hypnotherapist, having studied at the Quest Institute in London.
I now see clients in Poole, Christchurch and London face to face and international clients via Skype helping them to achieve their goals and helping them to live the life they want to live.
