About me

My expertise is in complex emotional issues, anxiety (in all its manifestations), low self-esteem, and imposter syndrome. I often work with clients whose confidence has been crushed by their current work or home situation, relationships, or past events. Hypnosis is a powerful tool for change and the benefits of hypnotherapy frequently extend beyond the issue you came to me for. I'm qualified in a broad range of hypnotherapy and psychotherapeutic techniques including CBT, so I can adapt my approach to suit each client.

I'm a very experienced therapist and have a successful track record of working with clients online and in person. I offer a free telephone consultation so get in touch so that we can have an informal chat and decide if we are a 'good fit'.

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.

Anxiety, Low Self-esteem & Negative Thoughts

Having tried several different therapies to help me with anxiety issues, traumatic stress and low self esteem I found Lorraine's approach not only incredibly effective, but also refreshingly honest, direct and practical. I valued Lorraine's empathy, concern and encouragement and looked forward to my visits. Her approach was different to anything I had experienced before and helped me greatly. I am now in a very different place and when I need them Lorraine's words remind me to think differently and challenge my unhelpful thoughts. I am extremely grateful to Lorraine and would recommend her to anyone experiencing similar difficulties.

Bruxism (teeth grinding)

Just a quick note to thank you for all your help and guidance this summer. Not only have I learned the official word for chronic teeth grinding ('bruxism'), I have also been able to understand much more about its causes. Addressing those underlying reasons through discussion and hypnotherapy rather than simply trying to halt the symptoms has made an enormous difference. It has also been a fascinating and life-affirming journey to take and I would recommend to anyone with similar issues to book some sessions and take back control of their lives. It's not just their teeth that will thank them for it!

Anxiety attacks

When I went to see Lorraine I had severe anxiety- I was getting anxiety attacks 2 to 3 times a week. After the first session of hypnotherapy I really began to see a change and the anxiety attacks stopped happening. After 6 sessions my anxiety symptoms completely disappeared. It is now 3 weeks on from my last session and their has been a complete change to my thinking, sometimes when I get anxious I look back on what I learnt during my sessions with Lorraine and I am able to stop my anxiety as soon as it comes on. I would highly recommend going to see her.

Anger & Low self-esteem

I came to see Lorraine for help with a whole host of issues including low self-esteem, anxiety, anger and relationship problems. I was putting so much pressure on myself to be 'perfect', I was making myself and others around me miserable. The issues were so entangled I really didn't know where to start and I had previously found talking therapies next to useless. I knew what the issues were, just not how to solve them myself. Lorraine used a number of different techniques to help me and introduced me to a series of effective exercises and practical ways of tackling the problems myself. I now feel so much calmer in myself and have the tools to nip any future problems in the bud as and when they may present themselves.

Anxiety and Fear of Travel

Hi Lorraine,

Things are going well. I do find the recordings helpful and thank you for sending me the latest one. I've just come back from a short break in Europe. Went on Eurostar and had a lovely time so feeling very positive at the moment. I'm building on things and moving forward. I have started getting the train every day in rush hour (having spent a year getting the bus!) I definitely am continuing to put your breathing and relaxation techniques into practice. I have learnt a lot from our sessions and continue to employ it in daily life. Your support has been invaluable in getting me back to everyday life.

My issue was tougher, I was increasingly unable to sleep well and it was getting beyond a joke. I booked for an initial session and Lorraine explained that I would benefit from a course of six weekly sessions for my issue. I signed-up and after the 7 sessions (but with results starting after 3) I am now sleeping well and very grateful that I went to see her. Her premises are comfortable and professional and as well as the hypnotherapy itself, I found some of the tips and advice she gave me really worked. She also has a fantastic recording that accompanied my course which really helped at the beginning too.

I'd be happy to recommend her without hesitation.
