What is Self Care? The art of self-care is deciding to take personal responsibility for your own physical, emotional,...
From a young age I was a spiritual seeker, I became vegetarian at 14, campaigned for animal rights and green issues. As a teenager I was fascinated by astrology and taught myself how to draw up and interpret a birth chart. From here I explored many area's in the 'alternative field' including energy healing, vibrational therapies, yoga, meditation, and immersed myself personal development courses.
After travelling Europe I started training as a nurse in the UK but kept a foot in the natural therapy world as well as the medical field. For my own healing and well-being I practised Buddhist meditation and yoga, I trained in energy healing and did personal therapy sessions.
After 17 years in Oncology nursing in 2002, I decided it was time for a change so I trained as a yoga teacher, Hypnotherapist and mindfulness therapist. Now the two worlds really do come together with new brain research into mindfulness-based therapies and neuroplasticity. I am grateful to the scientists that have led the way in this field so we can use these ancient healing practices in a modern therapeutic way.

Why choose Heather?
As a packet-a-day smoker for 25 years, I was skeptical that hypnosis could cure me of this disgusting, costly and deadly habit. But once I had my new baby girl, I realised I had no choice but to kick the habit. After committing to a course, I was amazed that after each consultation I felt less and less like smoking. I just wasn’t enjoying it any more. I am extremely happy to say I am now cigarette-free for life – I am never going back…Nathan Luck Quit Smoking Hypnosis
I have been to 3 therapists before coming to Heather, and while all of them were helpful in their own way, I am amazed and delighted at how much progress I have made with Heather after only 4 visits. Way beyond my best hopes and expectations! I wanted to commend you on the effectiveness of your therapy. Mindfulness, real strategies, reprogramming of old and unhelpful cycles, and hypnotherapy. All very effective! Sincere thanks for that!!Andrew - Mindfulness Therapy & Hypnotherapy
I love my counselling and hypnotherapy sessions with Heather at the Lotus Centre. The sessions have been a vital aspect of my emotional and spiritual health throughout my cancer treatments and healing process. My family and friends are always commenting on my positive attitude throughout the toughest time in my life, and I believe that Heather has been a big contributing factor as she has helped me channel the bravest, strongest and most positive part of myself. I always leave these sessions with a fresh, positive and upbeat outlook on my life, the universe and upcoming challenges.Yvette Counselling & Hypnotherapy for cancer support
Just wanted to say, how apprehensive I was before the hypnotherapy for smoking cessation began, but realised after only 2 sessions with Heather , that it really does work, and how painless, and stress free it was to stop smoking. A month later, I feel like I can breathe again and my physical health is very much improved.Jaqui Harley Hypnotherapy - Quit Smoking
