About Your Health Professional
My name is Laura McDonald, and I'm a Clinical Hypnotherapist and BrainWorking Recursive Therapist. I can help you let go of old habits, beliefs, thoughts and behaviours that you feel no longer serve you well. Using powerful techniques from a choice of therapies, you can take control of what goes on in your mind, allowing you to live a freer, more contented life. Since 2004, I have assisted with a number of issues including smoking cessation, stress, PTSD, weight loss, childhood trauma, abuse, childbirth and so much more. I've used a range of different therapies from Hypnosis, EFT, Life Coaching, and BWRT®. Clients leave feeling empowered, with a sense of clarity, and tools to help themselves as often as they wish.
I trained in Hypnotherapy with the Institute of Clinical Hypnosis, London, in 2004. I began with the Foundation Course, continued on to do the Professional Course, and studied a further diploma in the Advanced Professional Course. I set up my practice as soon as I qualified, starting in a Notting Hill SureStart clinic specialising in helping pregnant women give up smoking. It was the start of a wonderful new career!
In 2006, I began practicing in the CHAIM Centre, Willesden Green, London. I spent a year there, before moving to Ireland, where I set up my practice in Kachina Alternative Health and Beauty Centre (Castlebar) in February 2007 and have been there ever since. Over the years, I have continued to expand my knowledge, studying Weight Management, Reiki, Healing, Life Coaching, Emotional Freedom Technique, NLP, Stress Management, and the amazing new BWRT®.
BWRT®’ stands for ‘BrainWorking Recursive Therapy®’, a model of psychology and psychotherapy created by UK professional
therapist, Terence Watts, MCGI. It’s a totally confidential method that does not require you to reveal your private information or personal secrets to your therapist and it is carried out in a completely conscious state.It does not use hypnosis or any concepts that might be considered mystical or unscientific - it’s completely logical, practical and down-to-earth, and for it to succeed only needs you to know what you want to change in your life. Only Certified Practitioners have been trained to deliver BWRT® and all have to adhere to a strict ethical code. Find out more at www.bwrt.org
I hold my clinic appointments in Kachina, Castlebar.
