It was Fiona Lamb’s personal struggles with anxiety and insomnia that led her to hypnotherapy. Specialising in addiction, anxiety, emotional eating and sleep issues, Fiona describes hypnotherapy as a form of guided meditation that gently encourages the brain to shift unwanted thought patterns to bring about significant change. Sessions take place over Zoom, which Fiona believes is a more effective way of rewiring the brain and means you don’t need to live in London to book an appointment. Fiona also offers a science-backed Stop Smoking programme.
