South London, Clinical Hypnotherapist, MNCH (reg) Hyp. Dip.

Clinical Hypnotherapist: Elizabeth Knights Trench

My life story, how I came to set up Brixton Hypnotherapy in South London and how I can help you. I specialise in helping people overcome anxiety, stress, depression, loss of motivation, anger management, weight, sleep issues and build people up into the best versions of themselves; confident, in charge and in control of what they think, feel and how they act. My video blog is ‘The Barefoot Hypno’ and it is tools, tips and techniques helping people ‘get happy’. My articles are for better understanding of things that hold us back and my passion is helping women succeed whether that be in the work place, or at home or socially. I like helping women feel empowered, ‘owning their space’ out and about and ‘leaning in’ to life generally.

I had two sessions and already something has shifted as I’m not eating anywhere near as many sweet things as I was and have lost about 5lbs so far. She’s brilliant. I would have no hesitation in recommending her (highly) to others.

Liz made me feel comfortable and relaxed straight away, she is so easy to talk to. Doing therapy with her has been an amazing experience and I have learnt so much about what has caused my insomnia and what I can do to overcome it.

Helping people change their life around via therapy, has been a huge shift in my life. I spent my 20’s running around the Planet living an incredibly exciting, busy life; working in Radio and TV, finding myself on camera, reporting and picking up some investigative journalism awards and jetting off abroad to do the same in far flung places. Not convinced by broadcast, I set up a political theatre company while making films about the many social issues that adversely affect women.

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

When I had my daughter, I put hypnosis to the ultimate test of pain control. I took no drugs, I turned my focus inwards and birthed in a dark, silent environment. It was so powerful to trust my body. This experience (and a younger sister who begged me to teach her) led me to set up birthing and parenting workshops that combines hypno-birthing with therapy to prepare people for the journey of parenting.

I’m not and never have been a one trick pony, so I was never going to be simply a hypnotherapist; I read, explore and learn incessantly. I take skills, techniques and ideas from here, there and everywhere and pull it all into helping people with the changes they want. I’ve lived on different continents, held many different jobs and always drummed to my own beat. This brings instinct, courage and a frankness to my therapy room that I believe benefits everyone.
