Laurie Harvey

Laurie Harvey HPD, DipCHyp, MNLP, MNCH.

I have more than a decade’s full-time experience of helping people to build more positive relationships and closer connections with themselves and the people around them.

As loving parents, we’re emotionally vulnerable to the behaviour of the people we love and care about most. We want them to be happy and successful and when we see them suffering we can become triggered by our own emotional baggage which can generate strong feelings of fear, guilt, frustration, anger, sadness etc.

These strong feelings make it difficult to control our own thoughts and feelings and can create conflict in and around us and can escalate and contribute to the pain involved when a young person is experiencing emotional suffering. Our own emotions make it difficult to see a way though a challenging family situation.

When we’re in a good place emotionally we’re more able to help the people around us who are struggling.

When we resolve our own thoughts and feelings we’re able to change our reactions and approach situations with more clarity and insight which means demanding relationships become more calm, communication can be more harmonious and constructive solutions are more easily achieved.

I support parents of young people who are struggling with emotional issues because it’s not just the young person’s problem and as a unified unit you’re all stronger together.

Testimonials for Laurie Harvey

  • “I would really recommend this service to others, particularly those who face being challenged with issues relating to anxiety, panic attacks, low mood and confidence levels. I have had these issues for a while and it was refreshing to find that hypno- therapy works really well for me. I went in with an open mind and Laurie really guided me through the whole process which I feel plays a huge part to its success for me. Laurie had been a very professional and personable therapist which made it much more comfortable for me. I find It comforting to know that this service is out there should I ever need it in the future.“

  • “Thank you so much Laurie for helping me cope with anxious and negative feelings, it has been fascinating learning about how possible it is to improve oneself by dealing with problems lurking subconsciously.”

  • “I am 100% happy with the service – I met someone very cool in the process too, Laurie you are a very special human – keep doing what you are doing. A huge heartfelt thank you! I didn’t quite realise how much I needed you on my recent journey but you helped me through it no end.You were so welcome into my heart and head and I think your ability to ‘get’ and read people is a gift! Hope our paths cross again one day”

  • “Laurie’s warm and friendly demeanour immediately puts you at ease and I’m so glad I chose Laurie as my hypnotherapist. Mentally, I was in a bad way due how my medical condition affected my mental health and I honestly didn’t know how to get myself out of it. Not only did she provide structured sessions that really focused on the problems I had, she also did her homework in terms of understanding my condition and working with that – which really helped. I have come on in leaps and bounds since. My confidence has improved greatly and I’m already seeing the benefit in all areas of my life such as work, making friends and generally being a happier and more engaged person with life! It really does work!”

  • “I cannot speak highly enough about my work with Laurie. In just a short time, she managed to touch on the issues that were causing me problems with my confidence. Together we worked on resolving the issues that were clearly affecting my life – these were often small and seemingly minor issues that had affected me in childhood and had been left unresolved. After completing my course with Laurie, I felt an overwhelming feeling of relief in letting go of issues that were just not relevant to my life anymore. The sessions have definitely left me more confident and relaxed – in short, I feel back to my old self!”

  • Laurie was a delight to work with to tackle the issues I needed to resolve. Her approach was sympathetic and tailored to my exact needs. I would highly recommend her and will certainly go back if I feel the need to again in the future.

  • “Laurie has really helped me to cope with everyday life. She has helped me to get to the bottom of unconscious thought processes and learn to deal with work and personal matters. I initially came to see Laurie because I felt I needed with stress, but also was helped with things surrounding that like confidence and worrying. I feel much better equipped as a result and highly recommend her practice.”

  • “I would like to say thank you to Laurie . This time has been so valuable and has given me a great outlook on life. I now have great coping strategies with my worry and anxiety and I also feel like I’m better equipped to deal with problems
    Thank you so much!! “

  • “Working with Laurie has made a real positive difference. The approach she takes is calming and supportive. I was not sure what to expect, all I knew was that I needed help with confidence in social situations, and that nothing else had worked. Laurie helped me to understand the emotional issues that had prevented me from feeling comfortable in these situations, and to let go of them. Since our sessions I have not only felt different, I have been able to act differently too.“

  • “Laurie is such a kind and caring woman. When I rang her to speak about booking the appointment she really re-assured me and made me feel so comfortable. She did an example of a session on the phone and I was instantly shocked at how someone so calm can make you feel a change within a matter of minutes. During my sessions Laurie discussed with me why I wanted her help and we discussed my past experiences, its crazy to think that half the things we spoke about unless it was for Laurie I don’t think I would have been able to pin point the problems. Laurie has massively helped me by listening to my needs and concerns!”

  • “Laurie Harvey has an exceptional approach to her clients, which is both caring, understanding and specific to your needs. Her sessions are not on a time clock so you do not feel rushed but relaxed and supported. She expects 100% effort from you and I feel gives 200% in return. She is well educated and professional. She gives a very good explanation of why certain things can happen and how the brain does its best to protect us and how we can override certain problems. I have suffered from serious problems since I was 13 plus and suffered from self harm, depression and anxiety and what the Drs termed as nervous breakdowns several times. Laurie does not attach labels to you, and looks at the problems. I had 3 sessions with Laurie over several weeks and I felt ready to face the world. I will not hesitate to go for a top up or if I faced a challenge that I felt needed instant assistance as I feel after all these years I have someone I can now trust. “

    Thank you so much!! “

  • “Laurie is kind, understanding and more like a supportive friend. She is very professional and it obvious that she has much experience in this field, not only that but I feel Laurie was born to be a Hypnotherapist and coach. I have had many types of therapy in the past but none are as intuitive and effective as Laurie’s approach.”

  • “My treatment sessions with Laurie have changed my life by teaching me how to use my mind and relaxation to control my body. It’s the best thing I ever did.”

  • “This has to be one of the most worthwhile experiences of my life! My head is so much more peaceful, I feel confident in my skills and calmer and lighter inside. I don’t know if I’d feel the same if I’d had the same sessions with another therapist, I think so much of it was down to Laurie’s approach, words and understanding. “

  • “I don’t know why I waited so long before seeking help of this kind. After the work Laurie and I did together, I feel better equipped to deal with conflict and anxiety and am looking forward to the future rather than dreading it.”
