About me

I’m Elaine Henderson and I founded Border Hypnotherapy Centre in 2009 after a career in financial services.

I have a Diploma in Ericksonian & Clinical Hypnotherapy, am a licensed Master NLP Practitioner, NLP Business Practitioner, Hypno-Band Practitioner, Past Life Regression Practitioner, Reiki Practitioner & Emotrance Practitioner as well as mindfulness instructor and coach.

As a fully qualified hypnotherapist I was one of the first in the country to be registered with the Complementary and National Healthcare Council (CNHC).

In 2014 I founded Live Mindfully Ltd and, in addition to my private practice, I ran numerous mindfulness and resilience courses throughout Scotland. Our corporate clients included, Tesco Bank, Scottish Borders Council, H&M, Lyon and Turnbull and Y People.

My work is highly influenced by the studies and advanced trainings I have undertaken with Dr. Stephen Gilligan in both the UK and the US. Dr Gilligan is highly regarded worldwide for his work in the area of hypnosis, and psychotherapy and was himself the protege of the great Milton Erickson, considered to be the founder of modern hypnotherapy.

In 2019 I decided to take a break from working and enjoyed a few months travelling Europe in a campervan with my dog Finn.

I now combine my love of travelling with working which is great. However, it does mean I have fewer appointments available each month, but I do accommodate everyone as best I can.
