Hi, my name is Leonie Remington, and I'm the founder of LKR Therapies. I’m originally from New Zealand and after graduating from Victoria University in Wellington, my adventures took me to the other side of the world, firstly stopping to live in Canada and then on to the UK.
My genuine interest in people and the processes of the mind is what led me to study psychology and criminology at university. After graduating and travelling the world, I settled in Newbury, Berkshire and followed my passion for psychology by exploring hypnotherapy and its benefits. Having personally experienced the power of hypnosis and attending an introductory course, I was convinced this was the best form of therapy I could offer.
I went on to further my training with the ‘Institute of Clinical Hypnosis in London’ and graduated as a clinical hypnotherapist at the end of 2000. I also completed certified training with the ‘Society of Neuro-Linguistic Programming’, and a ’Diploma in Focusing’.
My career as a hypnotherapist has given me the opportunity to work with a wide variety of people to overcome a wide variety of issues and problems which are having a negative impact on their lives.
"I truly believe that the only limit on what you can achieve is the artificial limit in your mind".
For a variety of reasons, our minds can consciously or unconsciously create barriers and obstacles which make it difficult to achieve what we want to achieve. Hypnotherapy can help to break down these barriers, so that you can move forward and achieve your goals. My work has led me to work with people with a wide range of physical, mental and emotional issues such as anxiety, stress, fear, phobias low confidence, sleep problems, hormonal imbalances, digestive issues, headaches, and infertility to name a few.
Whilst working with clients using hypnotherapy, I realised some people needed a little more, or for some, they needed a completely different approach. This led to me train as a reflexologist gaining a distinction ‘ITEC Reflexology Diploma’.
It’s great to be able to offer the flexibility of both hypnotherapy and reflexology, either separately or as an integrated approach, when it is beneficial to the client’s health and well-being.
I am very lucky to have the pleasure of working out of a lovely converted barn in Thatcham at Total Health West Berkshire, based just a few minutes outside of Newbury, Berkshire. It is a beautiful calm environment with a very relaxed feel about it. It’s a great place to unwind and relax and to experience the benefits that hypnotherapy and reflexology can offer you.
