LAURA WHEELER GQHP, GHR Reg
Since gaining my diploma in Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy I have followed my passion for sport and specialised as a sports psychology hypnotist. Alongside the knowledge I've gained from my qualifications and client hours, I also bring a wealth of knowledge from my years training at the elite and international level. I am also a qualified guided meditation practitioner
As a retired international athlete within the Great Britain Rowing Team I have a passion for helping others achieve their sporting ambitions and this is how I came to train in hypnotherapy.
I first started rowing at the age of 16 and soon after competed internationally with the GB junior rowing team. I subsequently joined the High-Performance squad at Nottingham Rowing Club before moving to the GB senior rowing team national base.
During my time as an athlete the psychology of sport always fascinated me and I received hypnotherapy for my own sports performance and injury management and recovery. I then retired from sport after struggling through training with chronic fatigue. So I know all too well the importance of recovery and an athletes wellbeing.
I trained for my Clinical Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy Diploma with Mindworks I am a member of the Mindworks Guild, I regularly undertake supervision and CPD to ensure I keep up to date with the latest information. Shortly after qualification I specialised in Sports Performance Mind Coaching with Nick Davies Sports Psychology and Hypnosis. As well as my work with athletes I also work with a wide variety of people with a variety of issues from stress and anxiety to those with phobias or even looking to manage chronic pain. I love the variety that hypnotherapy brings to my work day and getting to know client from all walks of life.
Since having to retire from international sport with chronic fatigue I am passionate about relaxation and recovery not just for athletes. We all lead busy lives and while we might ‘Nexflix and Chill’ we don’t very often take time away from it all to just be quite in our own thoughts. I qualified as a guided meditation practitioner and have a range of relaxation classes available to book online.
