WHAT CAN I DO FOR YOU?
Let’s get straight to it… I can help you optimise your sleep, reduce stress and anxiety in your life and build confidence so that you can Lead a Better Life.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY.
“This woman is amazing! Before meeting with Lauren anxiety was affecting me on a daily basis, living in an anxious state and missing out on valuable memory making with my family. Lauren has changed my life - after only 3 sessions I was able to take my children to the cinema by myself! I couldn’t recommend her enough.” – Emma
“My sleep has improved dramatically and I now know how to make my mind work for me. I was a complete sceptic but now rave about hypnotherapy to everyone I meet and highly recommend Lauren (and often do!).” - Maddie
“I was at my wit’s end, struggling with anxiety. I was sceptical about hypnotherapy but shouldn’t have worried – Lauren is the ultimate professional and I gave me the techniques to deal with situations in a calm, controlled and relaxed manner. I now feel like me again.” – Yvonne
“I had an extreme fear of spiders since childhood and had given up on the idea I would ever overcome my fear. After hypnotherapy sessions with Lauren I calmly removed a spider from a room – my family couldn’t believe it!” – Nikki
