Irene Loudon

As a trichology student in the 1980s, Irene was introduced to the therapeutic value of hypnotherapy and psychotherapy for emotionally disturbed patients.  Aiming for excellence in my practice, I embarked on a course of training with the National College and became a member of the NRHP in 1988.  Due to the diversity and complexity of client and patient needs presenting, I have widened my qualifications over the years to embrace a broad spectrum of treatment methods.  These include cranio-sacral therapy, sound therapy, phytotherapy, allergy and environmental therapy, kinesiology.  She is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Public Health, Senior Associate of the Royal Society of Medicine and for her service to humanity, she has been bestowed the title of Dame by the Sovereign Order of St John of Jerusalem, Knights Hospitaller.

John Pilling

John has been working full time within the industry for the past ten years in which time he has adapted and continued to develop his understanding of the issues that therapists face personally and globally.  He works therapeutically within the education sector (notably 11-16 year old students) on a daily basis helping to assist change and transition for troubled teenagers.  He has more recently been developing his private work to increase his profile as a therapist and reach a wider audience.  His intention is to make people aware that during this time of economic austerity, self-esteem and being emotionally intelligent is vital in building strong feelings of resilience and goal orientated focus.
