Hello I’m Lou Seabourne, I am a specialist in Anxiety and Stress, Bereavement and Loss and Relationships.
I am an experienced Integrative Hypnotherapist, which means I used a combined approach of hypnotherapy, relaxation techniques, breathework, counselling, coaching and positive mindset approaches. I have expertise in working with anxiety, stress, bereavement and loss and relationship issues. Drawing upon my background in nursing and patient safety, I combine my many years of professional experience and skills with self-help tools developed through my own life experience. Delivering approaches, that are effective, achievable and sustainable.
My approach is solution focused and from the perspective that:
Small steps are easier and create a solid foundation for positive change, that you can sustain
Accepting where you are at and allowing how you are feeling right now, is the first most powerful step towards creating that change.
Every day you can start over - You can begin to move forward from wherever you are.

"Thinking of the past, quickly turns to what opportunities are lying ahead for me. The world's my oyster! I now feel that I'm on the right path. Thank you so much for helping and supporting me!"
"Effective treatment with a caring professional that gets to the heart of the problem. Louise has a knack of bring clarity to a situation and enabling you to find the way forward."
"Louise is a very well trained and professional therapist. Her subtle and skillful approach helped me to see things far more clearly, which enabled me to focus on the important things.
I can recommend Louise to anyone!
Louise, thanks for your help!"
"Louise helped me greatly to move through the grieving process and a family funeral in the first weeks. Her approach to my anxiety was soothing and reassuring and her wise counselling applied techniques and therapies were reassuring and easy to embrace. With time and patience, she gradually helped me to get off tranquilisers then sleeping tablets with no adverse effects. Just soothing relaxation and breathing therapies, which enabled me to rebuild my life over the following months. Without Louise things may have been far different. The inside of a secure unit was not a place for recovery for me, but her empathetic counselling skills and reassuring techniques have made such a difference to my life."
"I just wanted to get in touch! You may remember that I hated my job, but after seeing you I felt something take over me. So, I quit and decided to go back to University and am now training to be a teacher, and loving every single day! I’ve also lost 2.5 stone and am half a stone away from the 3 stone I wanted to lose when I first started seeing you. So really, it’s just a huge thank you, but I owe you so much more! This past year has been so positive and happy for me, and I truly believe that was because I started the year off by meeting you!"
"You've taught me so much over the last few weeks and helped me to deal with and overcome my anxieties and I can't thank you enough"
"Thank you for guiding me in the right direction. I couldn't have done it without you! I feel so much better about myself and my life"
