About me

I'm Laurence I've been helping people who have been experiencing mental health difficulties, in particular anxiety, stress related issues and low mood for over 30 years, working within the NHS as a Registered Mental Health Nurse.

I trained in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy as I believe that the therapy is effective in finding the solutions to overcome the difficulties we experience.

I will work with you to help you overcome difficulties experienced with low mood, stress/anxiety, panic attacks, phobias and OCD. I also offer a stop smoking session. I can help you with weight management, confidence and performance improvement. 

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy focuses upon the solution not the problem. It utilises hypnosis to develop a relaxed state of mind in order to promote better communication between the subconscious and conscious mind. It combines with the latest neuroscience research in helping you gain an understanding of how your thoughts influence the way you feel and how to learn to focus on making positive changes to your life.

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.
