Hi, I’m Lorraine Grant, a professional hypnotherapist, councillor and NLP practitioner based in Norwich.
After leaving school at 18, I trained as a paediatric nurse at Great Ormond Street Hospital, where I continued to work for another year before joining a busy A&E department. I learnt a lot here, but this placement challenged me as a nurse and as a person. The nature of the job meant that I couldn’t focus on nurturing and supporting people by spending time with patients and getting to know them. There are many excellent A&E nurses out there, but this job was not for me!
Having earned a BSc (honours) in Specialist Community Public Health applied to school nursing, I worked for more than ten years in this role. Much of my work involved counselling teenagers and using cognitive behaviour therapies. This was the part of my job that I enjoyed the most, offering support to vulnerable teenagers and guiding them through difficult and challenging times.
Through personal experience, I discovered the powerful benefits of hypnotherapy. It enabled me to make positive choices and move my life in the right direction, something I wasn’t getting from counselling alone. I was keen to learn more, and so I trained with the East Anglian Institute of hypnotherapy.
As a qualified hypnotherapist with accreditations in Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) and Thought Field Therapy (TFT), I enjoy helping people to make positive changes in their lives.

I dont know how it works...it just does! Amazing! I am more aware of what i eat and have lost over a stone in weight since seeing Lorraine. I just don't eat rubbish like I used to anymore.
Lorraine is fantastic. She succeded where other talking therapies and medication had failed.
I had sessions for stress management and relaxation... I became much more focused and completed more work
Amazing experience. After years of compulsive on line shopping and hitting the big 50. I decided I needed and wanted help. After couple message from Lorraine I instantly warmed to her and 2 weeks ago had my first session. I have not on-line shopped since... yes no temptation or need. The constant daily shopping for items left in my overflowing cupboards...things I thought I wanted but did not need and left in the box has stopped. Today I returned for my other compulsion...food! Over eating and eating rubbish. I had lost nearly 4 stone and it was creeping back on. I could not get back on track. Watch this space for updates. How do I feel? Relaxed..calm...no more manic thoughts in my mind of shopping and food. I am thrilled
Many thanks for seeing me at short notice recently after I had a mini panic about an upcoming schedueled flight I needed to take a few days later. Although you informed me that ideally you would have liked to have spent a bit more time preparing me for the flight, you immediately put my mind at ease expressing that you could reduce the anxiety I was experiencing. After our session I left almost excited at getting to the airport to start testing the work we had done and the tools you had taught me. I no longer felt nervous and even on the plane I felt much more relaxed than I anticipated. This inevitably made my holiday much more enjoyable. Thankyou so much. Kind Regards
“I had an appointment with Lorraine after trying for several years to lose weight after having a baby. Lorraine immediately made me feel comfortable and relaxed. She is easy to talk to, which was brilliant as I often struggle to talk to people about my weight. Lorraine helped me to explore the difficulties I had and remove some barriers that were preventing me from losing weight- none of which I had even considered before. She has enabled me to gain control over healthy eating and has helped motivate me into exercise that I enjoy. All of this has meant that I have lost weight relatively easily, with no fad diets. Thank you so much!”
“My son recently was lacking in confidence and was generally anxious about learning to ride his bike. Nothing I tried worked or encouraged him enough. Lorraine, however, was able to spend time with my son exploring the reasons and anxiety he had around riding his bike. She had a gentle approach with him and really related to him and his feelings. My son felt embarrassed about it and she really reassured him. Lorraine was able to identify his fear and give my son some easy to use tools to take away with him. However, after just one session I took my son and his bike to the park and was amazed at the change in him. He was able to use the tools he had learnt and confidently started to ride his bike. I couldn’t keep up with him around the park! He was a different child. This confidence was not short lived either, and he continues to ride his bike well and confidently a month later.”
“I had a consultation booked with Lorraine and I would just like to say how relaxing and amazing my experience was. Lorraine gave me some great tools to use to help build my confidence and learn how to relax. I have really noticed a big improvement already. Thankyou Lorraine and I cannot wait until my next appointment."
