A former NHS nurse who retrained as a therapist is hoping to soothe hearts and minds in Norwich after setting up her own clinic.

Lorraine Grant set up her therapy room after qualifying as a hypnotherapist with a specialism in neuro-linguistic programming.

She had worked as a nurse in the NHS for 18 years, at Great Ormond Street Hospital in London, at an accident and emergency department in Kent, and as a school nurse in north Norfolk and Norwich for almost a decade, before she left the organisation in 2016.

Her clinic on Hurricane Way in Norwich currently treats between 20 and 30 clients a month and offers treatments such as neuro-linguistic therapy, counselling, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and psychotherapy.

Ms Grant said: 'It has grown much quicker than I expected, which is good. I don't have a 'business mind' so I have had to learn quickly.'
