About Laura

Laura Salter RMN HPD DHP SFBT (hyp)

I’m a hypnotherapist specialising in solution focused therapy.

Through my work I’m committed to helping you get back in control of your life. My approach concentrates on the future and what you can achieve rather than dwelling on the past. In this way we create the lasting, positive change you need.

I run two clinics based in Ross-on-Wye and Blakeney:

I really enjoy helping people make positive changes in their lives, restoring health, happiness, and control. I specialise in treating adults and children with anxiety related conditions and provide a caring and confidential environment where I successfully treat a wide variety of conditions.

I am pleased to say a large number of my clients come as a result of referrals.

Sessions are carefully tailored to the needs and personality of each individual. The challenges you face are unique to you, and deserve a unique solution.

I started my career as a Registered Mental Health Nurse working in both adult and child & adolescent services. I qualified in 1999 and am still currently registered with the Nursing & Midwifery Council.

I then went on to train as a Clinical Hypnotherapist at the Clifton Practice in Bristol, one of the leading Hypnotherapy Centres in the UK where I gained the Hypnotherapy Practitioners Diploma (HPD) and the Diploma in Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy (DHP).

I’m an accredited member of the National Council of Hypnotherapy (NCH) and belong to the Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapists (AfSFH). As a member of these associations I follow a 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 as meeting strict national standards of practice.

I continually update and enhance my skills through Continual Professional Development and regularly attend supervision, training courses and conferences.

I hold an enhanced DBS Certificate.

I use my experience as a nurse to provide you with treatment that focuses on you.  I’ll help you develop a sustainable sense of well-being, control and happiness that will allow you to make the changes you need in your life.

Alongside hypnotherapy my approach includes solution focused brief therapy (SFBT), cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) and neuro-linguistic programming (NLP).  All these therapies are safe, gentle and effective and will show you how to find your own solutions from within.

As well as running my own practices in Ross on Wye and from Blakeney GP Surgery, I work at Breast Cancer Haven which is in Hereford.




Breast Cancer Haven provides free support, information and complementary therapies to people affected by breast cancer.




My work here involves helping people diagnosed with breast cancer manage and reduce any anxiety they may be experiencing and increase their overall wellbeing both physically and mentally.




I offer help with concerns around treatment such as needle phobia and pain management.
