“Do you want fast, effective and lasting change?  I am an experienced therapist and life coach. I have helped hundreds of people overcome anxiety, stress, low self-esteem, panic attacks, unwanted habits or behaviours. I guide my clients to take charge of their life and I can do this for you.”

Hypnotherapist and Life Coach in South London: Elizabeth Knights-Trench

Hypnotherapy is just another talking therapy – but using hypnosis. In terms of coaching, I use hypnosis alongside practical NLP tools,  to help clients overcome blocks and negative beliefs that prevent them reaching their full potential.

Hypnotherapy is classed as ‘alternative’ therapy – and yet it’s been used effectively for thousands of years, curing all sorts of physical and psychological issues throughout the history of mankind, including all cultures – the Sumerian, Persian, Chinese, Indian, Egyptian, Greek and Roman.

I”m not particularly ‘alternative’ I just use a type of therapy what works really well! For me, therapy should shift thoughts and beliefs, so we can change behaviour. A very wise friend described hypnotherapy as ‘finding out who you are under who you became’.

As a therapist and life coach in Brixton, South London I am simply your guide on your journey to change.

“Hypnosis works and the empirical support is unequivocal in that regard. It really does help people,” Michael Yapko, PhD,  psychologist.

Having found my website, you are probably wondering how Brixton Hypnotherapy can help you, and whether I am the right therapist for you, and if the training, expertise, tools and techniques I use will help resolve your issues.

In this video, I outline the process; how I work and what you can expect. When you are looking for a therapist, you should be firstly thinking what type of therapy feels right for you and secondly, is the therapist someone you want to work with.

So please watch the video, have a look around the website and then send me an email so we can arrange a free 20mins chat.

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

Hypnotherapy is a form of talking therapy. It is forward and solution-focussed and excellent for life coaching. You can expect real lasting change within six to twelve sessions.

I see clients in person and on Zoom from my therapy clinic in Brixton, South London. I do prefer to be in a room with clients, but Zoom works just as well and the benefit it you can leave the session, zoning out and processing on your sofa!

My style of working is to use my skills, experience and instinct. I combine in whichever way I think will encourage change. Sometimes i’m leading, sometimes m client takes the lead, sometimes I sit back and take the powerful role of ‘a witness’ and sometimes I’m suggesting, nudging and joining the dots. No sessions are ever the same.

I am trained in several forms of therapy, not just hypnosis/hypnotherapy and I bring this, a vast wealth of life experience, curiosity and compassion to my sessions.

Hypnotherapy excels for symptom management. A 2006 study concluded:

” positive results, including statistically significant reductions in pain and anxiety/distress…”  2006 Journal of Pain and Symptom Management.

This is an email I received from a client of mine, a GP, after five sessions, who I helped guide through a phobia.

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.

“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
