Iain Lawrence

Hypnotherapist in East Kilbride

My name is Iain Lawrence I am a Clinical Hypnotherapist registered with the National Council of Hypnotherapy (NCH) and the Complimentary and Natural Healthcare Council. (CNHC) . I worked for over ten years as a Mental Health Nurse prior to becoming a Hypnotherapist . I have extensive clinical knowledge for the characteristics of a range of mental health conditions. I think initially coming along to an appointment is very daunting for some people but with my nursing background I am adept at putting people at ease and any client will be met with empathy and complete confidentiality. As well as hypnotherapy I am also trained in Emotional Freedom Technique (Tapping) and NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming)
In our initial conversation if I feel that there is an intervention elsewhere that may better suit your problem then I will gladly signpost you to it as it is important to me to work ethically and honestly at all times. I also believe that clients should dictate the pace that we should work at , and the frequency of appointments is completely up to clients. Hypnotherapy is an enjoyable experience that looks to build new neural pathways (changes in thinking) by making helpful suggestions to your subconscious

My Specialisms

I am particularly adept and experienced in working with mental health conditions such as depression, anxiety , phobias , trauma, and self esteem issues. I also have extensive knowledge of behaviour change in relation to people wishing to reduce their drinking , or work towards abstinence. In addition to this I also have experience in treating smoking cessation and weight loss.

Approach to Therapy & How I Work

In my approach to therapy I strive to always work ethically and in partnership with clients. I know that we all can have similar problems but how we experience these problems differs from individual to individual which is why I try to individualise my approach as much as possible. The initial appointment always involves an initial assessment which gathers information on general emotional and physical well-being and a clients experience of their problem. In this initial appointment I explore the duration of the issue, in what way it negatively affects your life and the worst aspects to the most manageable aspects. This helps inform the best way to approach the issue for subsequent therapeutic appointments. In my practice each appointment lasts for 60 minutes.
