About me

Hi, I’m Susan Grainger 

I am passionate and dedicated about working in a collaborative way to help fulfil your goals.
I use a range of techniques to suit your individual needs. Using a blend of psychotherapy and hypnotherapy to support you to make effective and lasting changes.
I understand how difficult that first, all important move towards tackling an issue; it can bring on feelings of anxiety and vulnerability. Having a clear outline of what to expect can help to ease any worries.
A typical session would be a mixture of:

  • Discussion, so there is clear understanding on your take on the issue
  • Exploration, of what the 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

  • Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy Practitioners Diploma
  • Inner Child and Trauma Therapy
  • Solution Focus Therapy Practitioner
  • Emotional Freedom Therapy (EFT)
  • Hypnotherapy With Children Practitioner
  • Hypnotherapy in Schools Practitioner (Staff and students)
  • Certificate in Stress Management
  • Virtual Gastric Band

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.

Member organisations

The General Hypnotherapy Register (GHR)

Hypnotherapists may become members of the General Hypnotherapy Register if they satisfy certain criteria with regard to both training and ongoing requirements as determined from time to time by the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council (GHSC).

Members are either registered at Practitioner status (which confirms that the GHR acknowledges their qualification to practice), or Affiliate status. Although Affiliate level registrants will have completed a sufficient number of training hours to equip them to commence seeing clients on a limited basis, the GHR does not acknowledge them to have yet been trained to full practitioner level.

All GHR Registered Practitioners are required to accept the published Code of Ethics and Complaints & Disciplinary Procedure.

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.

Other areas of hypnotherapy I deal with

Children's issues such as bedwetting, thumb sucking, anxiety and sleep issues.
