A DONCASTER hypnotherapist has become one of the first in the country to achieve a new national standard of excellence for her work.
Susan Lawrence, 46, of Piece of Minds has been registered by the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC), the UK regulator for complementary healthcare which is sponsored by the Department of Health.
The recognition places her at the forefront of a national drive to provide a benchmark for standards and safety and make hypnotherapy more readily available in health centres, clinics, doctors’ surgeries and hospitals.
Susan, who has an office in Bennetthorpe, said: “Achieving registration is not only great news for me and my clients, but a vital step for hypnotherapy.
“This is the time of year when many people are struggling to keep up their new year resolutions and are actively looking to find a regulated therapist.
“The most popular uses for hypnotherapy are around stress, post-traumatic stress disorder, fears, digestive conditions, weight control and addictive behaviours such as smoking and alcohol abuse.”
Susan, who i was a non-believer in the treatment herself until she started to train, says the results of the sessions can be life changing.
Susan added: “Hypnotherapy is nothing like stage hypnosis that you see Paul McKenna do and it is used for most clinical conditions with great success.
“For example, I have recently treated a young man with Asperger’s Disease and although I can’t change his genetic make-up, I have managed to control his symptoms to allow him to lead as relatively normal life as possible.
“It’s very relaxing and most people’s conditions or problems can be cured in just one session.”
Susan, who also has offices in Sheffield and near her home in Wrawby near Brigg, is also in the process of organising a group hypnosis session in the very near future for weight loss where the profits will go to a local charity. She is keen to offer ex-servicemen and women treatment to deal with post traumatic stress free of charge.
