Thrive events are more focussed than a Meet Up – if you are feeling lost or confused, need practical information and would like a deeper dive into specific aspects of life with a brain tumour, then Thrive events are for you.

Thrive, using techniques from hypnotherapy to manage scanxiety – a series

This three part webinar series will take place on:

  • Weds 16th Sep, 3pm
  • Thurs 17th Sep, 3pm
  • Weds 23rd Sep, 3pm

Scanxiety can cause regular anxiety when living with a brain tumour diagnosis, as regular MRI scans are experienced together with the associated wait for results and all that this represents.

This new series of webinars will introduce the science behind hypnotherapy and explore techniques and strategies that can help you to manage the anxiety associated with MRI scans.

This webinar will be hosted by Louise Baker.

Louise Baker MSc DHP GHR. has been delivering teaching and personal sessions for over 20 years. Her passion lies in helping everyone access the therapeutic benefits of hypnosis by busting the myths and giving the most unto date information about how hypnosis and the brain work. She has specifically adapted the way she does hypnotherapy for people with brain tumours and their caregivers.

Webinars with brainstrust

Signing up for a webinar is simple. We’ve put together some guidance here! If you have any questions please email

These webinars are a little different to those you may have attended previously! They are deliberately kept to small numbers, so that everybody can make the most of the experience by interacting with each other and asking questions (although there is no pressure to share, and if you would like to keep your camera or microphone turned off that is fine).  If you sign up but can’t attend, please do let us know so that we can offer the place to someone else.
