Hello! I'm so glad you're here!

Did you know that your subconscious mind drives 95% of your daily behaviour? Hypnotherapy can help you to tap into that unutilised power and make significant, positive change in your life in a relatively short period of time.

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (SFH) is a combination of psychotherapy and hypnosis. It is a collaborative process where we concentrate on looking forward not back and solutions to problems rather than dwelling on the events of the past. We focus on the present and the future in a positive way, rewiring your brain to build new healthy patterns of behaviour and break negative and self-sabotaging thinking cycles that may have been holding you back for years.


Hypnosis (or ‘trance’ as it is also referred) is a very natural state. In fact we go into trance many times a day for e.g. watching a movie, listening to great music, on a run, driving our car etc. Hypnosis can be described as a guided day dream; a state of focused attention achieved through deep relaxation and positive visualization. In this relaxed state, your mind is more responsive to beneficial suggestions, designed to help you change unhelpful thought patterns. You are aware of everything that is going on and remain in complete control.

Hypnosis is all about changing our conscious awareness. Our brain wave activity fluctuates all the time, particularly as we enter the different phases of when we go to sleep. When I guide you into relaxation and mental imagery it can encourage you to go into a trance state, which causes a natural shift in our brainwave patterns. This means that we might shift from being in a fully alert mental state (like when we are hectic and busy working during the day - as shown by beta brain wave activity) into other states. As we are guided into deeper levels of relaxation, the brain demonstrates more alpha and theta wave activity, where we feel calmer and more relaxed but can also visualise images and reflect on different ideas that may be useful to us.

This is why Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can be so beneficial, because it combines powerful solution-focused discussions, followed by encouraging a relaxing trance state so that the ideas and solutions discussed can then be explored and applied by the brain to create significant positive changes and transformations in our lives.

Fun Facts

 "Hypnosis is focused attention," Because of its ability to create focus, one can tap into so many areas of empowerment they do not realise they have."


All hypnosis is self-hypnosis
Anthony Gitch, RHT, of Excel Hypnosis explains "It is not something that is done to you. It is a balanced dance with the therapist following where the subconscious mind leads, and then leading the subconscious mind towards profound internal insights." 

You need to want the change
No one can be hypnotised against their will. These suggestions and moments of reprogramming only work if someone wants it to.  Clinical hypnotherapist Traci Blank explains -

"Everyone has the ability to go into hypnosis but three things have to be in place to make it happen: desire, you have to want to go into hypnosis; belief, you have to believe you can go into hypnosis; and safety, you have to feel safe in the environment you are in and with the person leading you, When all these things are in place hypnosis can happen."

The power of suggestion has been used for thousands of years 
Many believe hypnosis was used as far back as Egyptian times in their dream temples and was also included in the ancient healing cultures of Greece, Persia & India

"Therapy and myself haven’t always gone smoothly, as someone who is constantly overwhelmed with anxiety I of course had instant doubts about engaging with Lauren’s Hypnotherapy. I was nervous about my first session and was close to backing out, but I knew it was something I had to at least try. After my first call with Lauren I knew instantly that this was different than the rest of the appointments and therapists that I had experienced before , which I thought had ruined my outlook on the whole concept of therapy. I would come out of appointments arguing with my mother over what had been said or what hadn’t been said , it would end with both of us in tears and silent the rest of the journey home. My battle with anxiety and depression from my early teen years has made trusting people who say they can help, almost impossible, until Lauren.

It doesn’t feel like a one on one with a therapist reading questions from a handbook, it felt real, like she cares which she really does. A sense of genuine interest in your day , your week , how you are really feeling and why. I never thought talking to someone about the littlest things in my day that made me happy would make such a difference in how I live everyday, how I think everyday. It’s the care and attention and patience she has for you that makes the difference in how much it affects you. She has been what I can only describe as someone I am forever in awe of and grateful for, as I never thought therapy would ever work me, I thought I was a lost cause. Yes my anxiety still kicks in at times I’m struggling but Lauren’s hypnotherapy isn’t there to completely eliminate all your anxiety worries, depression and fears, without all of those emotions we wouldn’t be human. Lauren’s hypnotherapy helps you to stop in the moment those emotions are weighing so heavy on you, and listen to your mind and understand how you can take charge of the moment and get through this emotion and fight it. It may not be a winning battle every time, but the more you fight, the more control you gain over your own mind and body again.

Lauren has taught me the only person who can truly help me is me. You can go to all the therapists in the world and take all the anti-anxiety or antidepressants prescribed , but nothing will work until you can listen to your mind and tell your self how to heal yourself. It’s a powerful feeling taking control of your emotions , and I couldn’t have come even close to it without the help of Lauren."
