About me

Susan Grainger offers a professional, reliable, tailored made service to meet the individual needs of her clients. She understands how difficult it can be to make that first, all important move towards tackling an issue; it can bring on feelings of anxiety and vulnerability so having a clear outline of what to expect may help. She uses a blend of psychotherapy and hypnotherapy to support you to make effective and lasting changes.

A typical session would be a mixture of:

  • discussion - so there is clear understanding on your take on the issue
  • a thorough exploration of what the your desired outcome is
  • practical hints and tips to take away and use in everyday life
  • hypnotherapy and psychotherapy intervention

I offer a free consultation to explore the issues and how you feel about them and then formulate a plan from there.

Training, qualifications & experience

  • Solution Focus Therapy Practitioner

I am also a Hypnotherapy tutor at Mind Works Nottingham where I also trained and I have gained a Certificate in Hypnotherapy Supervisor - accredited by the NCP.

I am a certified "Hypnotherapy with Children" therapist and a Hypnotherapy in Schools Practitioner which I am proud to have achieved last year as I have a 22 year background in working alongside children and parents and carers within the Social Care and Voluntary sector and more recently in the NHS. This has added a new dimension to my work, an extra source, using all the basic hypnotherapy techniques, tailored to work specifically with children. I feel this knowledge and experience allows me to be a very effective therapist when it comes to matters involving family relationships form early parenting, helping to support those crucial initial bonds, to dealing with teenagers, working co-operatively to build strong, healthy relationships.
