I am a CNHC Registered Practitioner
I have always believed in a holistic approach to therapy, to be able to look at people as a whole, in mind, body and spirit. In 1994 I qualified as an Aromatherapist and thoroughly enjoyed working with this discipline. An Aromatherapist does not just massage, they listen, mix oils according to a persons state of mind as well as to help soothe ailments and so in 1997, to attune my listening skills, I took my first course in Counselling.
At the beginning of 2016 I made the decision to change my private practice and concentrate solely on the talking therapies, BWRT®, Psychotherapy and Hypnotherapy.
I am qualified and have diplomas in Hypnotherapy and Counselling Skills, BWRT® and other psychotherapeutic techniques, as well as Aromatherapy and Anatomy, Physiology & Body Massage. I am a Registered BWRT® (adv.) Practitioner, a new and exciting solution-focused behavioural psychotherapy. I also hold certificates in Hypnotherapy for Children, HypnoBirthing & Pregnancy, Hypno-Gastric Band Therapy and Online and Telephone Therapy.
I regularly attend CPD (Continual Professional Development) courses to enhance my skills and to keep them up to date.
I am on the CNHC Register and am also registered with several professional bodies being; the Association for Professional Hypnosis and Psychotherapy (APHP), the National Hypnotherapy Society (HS), the Terence Watts BWRT Institute (IBWRT), and the National Register of Psychotherapists and Counsellors (NRPC), and abide by all of these professional bodies strict codes of conduct.
I have public liability and professional indemnity insurance and hold a current enhanced DBS certificate.
I work Online via secure, encrypted video conferencing such as Zoom or Vsee, via telephone, and I also work face to face from my private practice at home. In accordance with Government guidelines, face to face appointments are not possible during the COVID-19 Pandemic.
I work with adults, adolescents and children.
All sessions are strictly by appointment only.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
"...finding stopping smoking significantly easier than any previous attempts. My attitude is much more about positive gains and benefits than perceived loss which I attribute to the hypnotherapy - so thank you very much"
I was apprehensive about trying hypnotherapy because I find it hard to relax and switch off the thoughts running through my mind. Loraine overcame this easily with her lovely soothing voice, and when I came out of hypnosis I was surprised that forty minutes had passed! The hypnotherapy has helped me greatly to cope with stress in my life, and I would recommend Loraine to anyone who is wondering whether hypnotherapy can help them
