“Are you exhausted trying to hold it all together? It doesn’t have to be this way. I help people get on top of anxiety, stress, low self-esteem, panic attacks and other unwanted behaviours. I guide people to get back in charge of their life with tools, techniques and analysis, and I can do this for you.”

Hello, I’m Liz. Welcome to my Brixton-based clinic that overlooks the stunning and tranquil Brockwell Park. It’s a light-filled room, quiet, cozy and comfortable.

Hypnotherapy and the COVID-19 Crisis

Lockdown has affected my clients differently: for my most introverted, it’s been a welcome escape from a world they find stressful; for clients with family at home, it’s testing limits, and for clients self-isolating, there is a genuine battle with loneliness. For clients battling anxiety, a pandemic has unsurprisingly exacerbated it.

Hypnotherapy can help you cope with whatever this situation is triggering in you and for some of my clients their sessions have become a necessary lifeline.

I am offering FREE support sessions for all COVID-19 frontline workers. If you or anyone you know works on the frontline and needs to better manage stress, overwhelm, anxiety, please book your online session today. We can do this using Skype, WhatsApp video or FaceTime.

Clinical Hypnotherapist: Elizabeth Knights-Trench

Hypnotherapy came to my attention through a friend, who after a health scare, transformed from being in constant meltdown, a headless chicken (in the City), to the most peaceful, serene Wise Woman being gracing the planet! Through her journey, I learnt about Polyvagal theory, Family Constellations, Internal Family Systems, and how powerful hypnosis can be in therapy. The next thing I knew, I was training in it myself.


Sessions are gentle, calming and effective and lead to lasting change.

Depending on your needs, I use tools, techniques and methods from counselling, pscyho-dynamic therapy, Jungian, NLP, life-coaching and hypnosis to ensure rapid, effective change that stays. Hypnosis in therapy isn’t what you’ve seen on TV; it’s gentle, you’re in charge and I use it (as one of many therapies) to shift patterns of thoughts, feelings and behaviours so they are more useful to you.

“Hypnosis in therapy is gentle, relaxing and incredibly effective.”

Hypnotherapy is a forward-focussed and short-term process, normally lasting for 4 to 10 sessions.

My sessions can be face-to-face (London SW2) or via Skype and Facetime. I occasionally make home visits in my local area. My clinic is on Brockwell Park, 5 mins walk from Brixton Tube or Herne Hill Station.

I am trained to an advanced level in Clinical, Medical and Psycho-dynamic therapies, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Neuro Linguistic (NLP), Regression and Internal Family Systems (IFS) as well as Solution-focussed, Ericksonian and medical hypnosis.

Amy had four sessions with me and I saw her transform in so many ways.

Over eight sessions, my client transformed into a happier version of herself. Incredible to witness and an honour to work with.

This is an extract from an email I received from a recent client. She suffered panic attacks on a regular basis.

Karen has four gorgeous boys – and paid them £2 to go off and give her 30 mins to try hypnotherapy with me! She said I could film her ‘before’ and ‘after’ – this is ‘after’.

A full-time teacher, a busy mum and no family in London to help out; Salome talks to me after a 30 min session of hypnotherapy about the process.

This is an email I received from a recent client. She was suffering from anxiety at work, especially in meetings.

“To use a client’s words, I bring ‘intelligence, perception and kindness’ to my therapy sessions so you will feel the benefit almost immediately.”Brixton Hypnotherapy
