About Me

Loraine Makowski-Heaton

I am a qualified Hypnotherapist, Psychotherapist and Registered BWRT (adv.) Practitioner and have also been Assistant Tutor for EICH Norfolk  on their Professional Hypnotherapy Diploma course since 2019.   I live in a small village in South Norfolk with my husband, two of my four children and my elderly parents.  I am an animal lover and also share our home with dogs, cats and, would you believe it, 6 elderly goats!  When I am not working and looking after the family, I can be found unwinding playing with textile fibres - spinning, weaving, crochet and macrame.

I have worked both in the corporate and private sectors where I started my career teaching speech and drama and performing on stage, film and TV.  I trained in massage and aromatherapy in the early to mid 90's after which I also took a counselling skills course to extend my knowledge and training.  Although I no longer use aromatherapy in my practice, the holistic training, looking at the body as a whole, mind, body and spirit has stayed with me. 

After a move to a beautiful part of South Wales in 2002, I took a side step as a goat farmer which I thoroughly enjoyed and managed to achieve award winning cheeses and fudge and also became Wales' Women Farmer of the Year in 2010.

In 2013 my husband, who worked in London, and I moved the family nearer to the capital so that we could all be together full time and we arrived here in Norfolk where I have returned to my other love - therapy - where I could put my skills to use once again and learn and develop new skills to add to my therapy bow. 

 

I bring my life experience, corporate, private and rural, to my practice which I believe gives me a very rounded look at the world in which we live and an empathy to the clients I work with whether adults, adolescents or children.  I understand the stresses and strains of life from the large corporate to the lone farmer, from the single parent to the juggling housewife.

I enjoy helping my clients reach their true potential.
