Laura Salter

My name is Laura Salter. I specialise in Solution Focused Brief Therapy, Rewind Trauma Therapy and Hypnotherapy. I can also use elements of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Neuro-Linguistic Programming.

My approach:

My approach is forward-looking and solutions-oriented. I am interested in helping you to regain control of your life and get to where you want to be, rather than delving into the past. For this reason, I use techniques that are quick and highly-effective, helping people to achieve positive and lasting change without needing to have endless therapy. My aim is to empower you and help you to find your own answers rather than needing to rely on me as “the expert”.

What to expect:

Clients tell me they like working with me because I am caring, empathetic and approachable. I listen without judgement and then we work together to find a lasting solution to your problems based on what you need. No two clients are treated in exactly the same way.

I treat all kinds of issues, including anxiety, low mood, trauma and phobias, and I work with people of all ages.

About me

I qualified as a Registered Mental Health Nurse in 1999 and have worked in adult and child & adolescent services. I continue to practice and am registered with the Nursing & Midwifery Council.

After using hypnotherapy myself for stress-management, I underwent training as a Clinical Hypnotherapist. I hold a Hypnotherapy Practitioners Diploma (HPD) and the Diploma in Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy (DHP).

I went on to train in Solution Focused Brief Therapy at the BRIEF Institute and obtained the Certificate in Solution Focused Brief Therapy.

I am trained in the rewind technique for trauma. I was trained by Dr David Muss and obtained the International Association for Rewind Trauma Therapy certificate to deliver this effective, internationally recognised technique.

I have been practising as a private therapist since 2011 and undergo regular Continuing Professional Development training, as well as receiving ongoing supervision and attending conferences. The reward for me of doing this work is seeing people change. Hypnotherapy, Solution Focused Brief Therapy and Rewind Trauma Therapy are based in neuroscience. Our brains have neuroplasticity, which means they can change and these changes can last. I help people understand how to make those changes.

I am an accredited member of the National Council of Hypnotherapy and abide by their strict code of ethics. I’m also registered with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC), which is widely recognised by GPs and other healthcare professionals. The CNHC quality mark shows that a practitioner has been assessed and meets strict national standards of practice.

I hold an enhanced DBS certificate.

I am currently practising online only, as my clients’ safety is paramount. This approach delivers the same benefits as face-to-face therapy and for some clients, such as those with anxiety, there are real advantages in being able to work in this way. Post-Covid I will update the website regarding face to face clinic sessions.
