Dr. Laura Widyanto
Behavioural Psychologist, Holistic Hypnotherapist, Counsellor, Shadow Work Therapist.
I had the privilege to work with Laura and my own personal experience was cathartic and ultimately, life-changing...Laura helped me to dig deep within myself and guided me adeptly to confront the past and what had been blocking me, and expertly aligned me to my potential. At the end of the session, I had clarity and a deep understanding of my own issues.

Laura's academic background includes a Doctor in Behavioural Psychology from Nottingham Trent University. Her work has been published in peer-reviewed journals as well as book chapters (a list of which can be found here-link). She gained my B.Sc. of Applied Psychology from Cardiff University in the UK. She is a certified hypnotherapist with Holistic Healing Hypnosis, and she's working on a diploma in Counselling and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy from the Institute of Counselling.
She has an extensive background in health promotion and disease prevention, having worked in Public Health for the NHS and a number of local government agencies in the UK. Her work was focused on engagement and advocacy, working within the areas of Domestic Violence, Maternal Health, and Smoking & Alcohol Cessation. She specialised in Public Health intelligence and data analytics, managing the analytics team at the Royal Free London NHS Trust.
She lived and worked in the UK for 23 years before moving back to Bali. A big part of her life is now spent at Maja Healing in Umalas, where she now practices as a hypnotherapist, counsellor, and Shadow Work Therapist. She is also a co-Director of Digital Alchemy; a small, boutique digital agency based in London and Bali where she leads on the research, data analytics and visualisation projects. In her spare time, you will find her planning her next elaborate prank on her husband (the last one involved a cat and an umbrella!), or hunting dragons with her 10-year old daughter.
