Is Hypnotherapy for you?

Arrange a call with me and we can discuss further.

Relaxation and being able to calm my mind during stressful times was my starting point. However, after a number of sessions with Lizzie, through which significant emotions and reactions have eased, this has also allowed healing and self-confidence and more recently, self-belief to grow and flourish.



After a bad concussion, I mysteriously developed occasional panic attacks, interfering with everyday life and motorway driving! My wife suggested hypnotherapy and gave me Lizzie's name. I was cynical, suspicious and reluctant. I shouldn't have been. Lizzie scooped me up and with warmth and sympathy, lead me gently into the calming world of hypnotherapy where my trust in her was instant. My panic attacks have disappeared, I've learnt the powerful art of self-relaxation and I feel like I've made a friend. Oh and for good measure, she also diverted my sweet tooth so that I now willingly and happily avoid the chocolate drawer. Powerful, enjoyable and life-changing. Thank you Lizzie. 


Surrey (66 years old)

My fear of public speaking had been impacting my career progression and confidence. Lizzie actively listened and after an online session of hypnotherapy and one of BWRT - in my next work presentation I felt more in control and actually enjoyed it! Highly recommend Lizzie - wish I had known and spoken with her sooner.



Lizzie’s approach is sensitive but with intent, and I feel the online sessions have greatly assisted with my long term issue of a little known condition, Vaginismus. Despite being in committed relationships with the most tender lovers, the locked trauma in my mind (difficult relationship with my parents, unable to speak my thoughts freely, restrictions of limiting belief systems) effectively locked other areas of my body and sexual intercourse has been impossible since the outset. This really was my last resort as I found little solace in the talking cure. I needed something to shift deeper in my subconscious. I do believe that if you're willing to find a solution, it will always surface.



I was very open-minded about hypnosis having never tried it before and was keen to see how it might help my menopausal symptoms. I have found it incredibly relaxing, very easy to listen to and really helpful with the cooling imagery. I have found the colours easy to imagine and it immediately gives me a sense of coolness and definitely reduces levels of anxiety due to the deep breathing involved. Whenever I feel heat rising or feel anxious I have definitely been able to use this technique. Thank you Lizzie.



Lizzie’s Mindful Eating course is nothing short of amazing! I’ve tried all sorts of diets and now going through the menopause was finding nothing was working for me. This course has really helped me think about the way I eat, it’s not a diet, it’s a new way of life, I feel in control and have lost over a stone in four months! I continue to listen to the recordings which help me fall asleep and reinforces how well I am doing and now I have a new relationship with food!



When I first started seeing Lizzie my self-confidence was at an all time low. I had two small children, my freelance work had hit a wall and I was using alcohol to relax in the evenings, inevitably leaving me irritated and demotivated the next day. Through a mixture of hypnotherapy and EFT I have increasing confidence, reduced anxiety and a more mindful approach to alcohol. I would absolutely recommend Lizzie to anybody wanting to make lasting changes. Thank you, Lizzie!



I started to speak to Lizzie after struggling with anxiety and overthinking during my first few weeks at University. I felt a difference in myself after one session and with the help of BWRT I have been feeling so much calmer. Lizzie taught me techniques to help control my anxiety before it overwhelms me and since speaking with her I have felt more comfortable in myself and my confidence levels have increased. After a session with Lizzie I feel much more relaxed and would definitely recommend Lizzie to anyone.


Exeter (18 years old)

I was struggling with anxiety surrounding a health issue when I picked up the phone and called Lizzie. It was the best thing I could have done. Lizzie tailor made sessions for me using a range of hypnotherapy, BWRT and EFT and I'm already feeling so much better with lots of tools to help me should I need them in the future. Thank you Lizzie for helping me to feel like me again. 



I recently completed the London marathon as a novice, driven by desire to fund raise. Mid-training I fell badly jeopardising attendance but trusting in my self healing and resilience, I did make it and ran the full distance. With Lizzie my sessions eased powerful emotions and provided tools, such as breathwork, to enable and help myself too. This is integral to her work and success and I believe adds to the power of the experience and impact of her sessions. It is important that this is not always immediate, quick fix style, but with Lizzie’s astute and sensitive guidance the results are clear for me to feel and see. I am very grateful to Lizzie, using her skills and wealth of experience she can assess each session as presented, in the moment, to guide the process of discovery and self-belief.



I have been struggling with panic attacks for a few months now after a difficult year but since meeting Lizzie I have developed a new level of calmness that I've been desperately wanting. I was nervous at the start but Lizzie has been amazing and has given me the tools and support to help me do everyday tasks again without constant worry and panic and I can't thank her enough. The relaxation methods have been a complete game changer and if anyone is thinking about giving hypnotherapy and BWRT a try, I would 100% say go for it!

Nicole (29 years old)


I came to Lizzie suffering badly from anxiety and over-thinking. Lizzie is extremely friendly, easy to talk to and puts you at ease through out. I noticed a difference after just one online session and after a couple felt completely renewed and more equipped to manage my anxiety and over-thinking. I am now able to stop it before it consumes me and it no longer dictates my actions and thoughts. I also did BWRT with Lizzie to tackle negative relationships and experiences that I had gone through both as a child and an adult. It wasn't until I faced a situation/person that normally would trigger me where I noticed the change it had made. I feel so much calmer and centred and would highly recommend Lizzie to anyone seeking support. 

Charlotte (29 years old)


I did the weight loss programme with Lizzie and found her methods very effective. I have had real problems with my sweet tooth and sugar cravings and had given up hope with looking how I want to. Lizzie has helped me change the way I look at food and my whole outlook towards the foods I eat. I don't feel like I'm depriving myself at all, I'm just being more mindful with the foods that I eat. I can now have the odd treat but in a controlled way which is something I could never do before doing this course. Lizzie made me feel completely at ease at each session and I really enjoyed them! She is extremely knowledgeable, open and friendly. Her methods are bespoke to each person and very detailed making it an individual tailored experience. Her audio recordings have also been invaluable throughout and I will continue to listen to them. I have lost 12lbs in 4 weeks and I'm so delighted that she's kick started my weight loss journey with such a positive start! I highly recommend Lizzie and am extremely grateful to her. Thank you so much! 



Hypnotherapy with Lizzie has really supported my ability to focus positively whilst playing in tennis matches. Lizzie was extremely professional in her approach throughout the course of treatment. During the sessions, Lizzie skilfully asked open ended questions and intently listened to the answers. She then based the hypnotherapy part of the session on my responses thus resulting in a tailored holistic approach to my needs. As a result, my tennis has improved beyond my expectations. I would highly recommend Lizzie. 



After struggling with a total addiction to vaping, I turned to hypnotherapy as I felt completely unable to kick the habit on my own. We had a few sessions during which Lizzie got to know me and what made me want to vape and then we had a hypnosis session to tackle the vaping habit. It was really incredible as afterwards my mind wouldn't allow me to return to it and I felt strong and able to enjoy a future life without vaping. I have gone from obsessive vaping to completely giving it up - and still remaining relatively sane! Amazing.



I have suffered panic attacks sporadically since my early teens and most recently they cam back with a vengeance whilst driving and particularly on motorways. I was left feeling emotionally and physically exhausted. I refused to use the motorways which caused me more stress and anxiety so I decided enough was enough...I need to get professional help. Then came along the wonderful Lizzie. Lizzie is just the loveliest therapist...she oozes calmness and put me at ease right from the start. We used the BWRT technique and I can honestly say it's changed my life. From the very first session I was back on the motorway and feeling very happy! Just AMAZING results...I'm generally a much calmer happier version of myself and I can't thank Lizzie enough. Highly recommend and thank you Lizzie! 



Lizzie Smith has helped me and my family cope with grief and the barrage of thoughts and feelings that come with it. She is very easy to talk to and I found her manner wise and comforting. She also does virtual appointments so can still offer the support so many of us need right now. I swear she’s an angel.



My 10 year old daughter has been seeing Lizzie for hypnotherapy sessions to help with her anxiety. Lizzie is highly skilled and has a wonderful way of calming my daughter down, reassuring her and giving her the tools she needs to reduce her anxiety in everyday life. Sleep has improved, she is happier and more content. I can highly recommend Lizzie as a therapist for children struggling with anxiety.



I went to Lizzie for help with weight loss. I was really nervous, but Lizzie is very welcoming and took lots of time to understand what was going on for me. She didn't just apply her model to me. She listened and tailored sessions to me. She used a particular technique with me using my words and motivations which made a real difference and meant it worked. Lizzie helped me to identify what food was doing for me and this helped me manage my triggers. Working with Lizzie was good for my soul and ultimately good for my overall health and wellbeing. 



Hypnotherapy was completely new to me before I started a course of
treatment with Lizzie Smith. A good friend advised me about the merits of
hypnotherapy and so I decided to give it a try. I have been delighted with
the progress I have made. Lizzie has been able to help me to “connect” with
the source of my problem and, as a result, to alleviate a lot of the stress
and anxiety I was feeling.



Lizzie is extraordinarily self-aware, with a calming serenity that enables people to feel safe and contained when in her presence. These qualities are invaluable. Her intelligence and insight have encouraged her to become a Hypnotherapist, where her empathy and compassion can be used to support and help other people.



In the months leading up to my A Levels, I started to notice that I was getting more and more agitated at small things, and struggling to sleep. It would take me an hour to get to sleep and then I would wake at least three times during the night. Although I didn’t consciously think it was directly related to exam stress, it is quite clear now that it was. I decided to see Lizzie for hypnotherapy for anxiety. I would always walk away feeling the calmest I have ever felt after a session and taking some time out just for me without feeling guilty, had such a positive effect. Lizzie kindly produced a recording for me, which I listened to every night for a few months and I would be asleep within 10 minutes…it worked wonders. I don’t know what I would have done without her help, so thank you very much Lizzie. I would thoroughly recommend this treatment to anyone who may be suffering with stress, anxiety or insomnia.



I had lost a significant amount of weight over the last couple of years. I did put on around 7kg during Covid. I like to call it my corona curves! I needed some help to refocus my mind and get me back on track. I know I can do it but just hadn’t got there with the motivation. Lizzie’s hypnotherapy sessions and support with Audio recordings and written information were just the thing I needed to kickstart the process. I lost 8lbs during the 4 weeks and am absolutely focused on achieving my goal to get back to my pre corona weight. Thank you so much, Lizzie. I intend to have a once month top-up to help with maintenance. Would absolutely recommend it.



I have been dieting my whole life. I understand what a healthy diet is and what I need to do but have always struggled to stay on track and reach my goals. Lizzie’s weight loss programme has taught me to listen to my body, have a far more healthy relationship with food, and be mindful of when I eat and how much I need. I have never had hypnotherapy before and apart from being a very relaxing and enjoyable experience, it has allowed me to focus very specifically on overcoming the obstacles that are specific to me and my weight loss journey. I have lost 10lbs in 4 weeks and it hasn’t felt like I have deprived myself of anything. I feel really in control and extremely positive and hopeful that I can continue to lose weight now and reach my personal weight loss goal. Thank you Lizzie for all your support and guidance and for allowing me to believe in myself.



Having spent only one month on the programme I have benefitted so much more with not only gradual weight loss but also: - am more conscious of eliminating snacking; - eating when hungry rather than by habit; - water intake has increased dramatically, my hydration levels have always been extremely low; - was walking occasionally and am now walking at least 5/6 times per week and enjoying it. The recordings encourage me to walk further. -The Hypno sessions, the recordings, the breathing exercises have all had a real impact on my well-being. I am now taking time for ME and recognising that I deserve this time. Would highly recommend Lizzie, she has shown me a way and given me the tools to achieve not only weight loss but so much more. Thank you, Lizzie.



I've been really delighted with how successful my experience has been on the Lizzie Smith Weight Loss Programme. I have lost a significant amount of weight in the four weeks since we started and I feel I can now go on to achieve my target weight. I have grown mindful of my 'relationship' with food and realised quite early on how I was 'feeding' those moments when I was stressed, or bored, or sad. Through Lizzie’s guidance, I chose not to feed these cravings but, at the same time, I did not deny myself any food. I just chose to eat a lot less of those things that I would have previously scoffed without thinking about it. Lizzie has helped me each step of the way, through our weekly hypnotherapy sessions and with the audio recordings to listen to at night and when I'm out on a walk. I cannot recommend Lizzie highly enough and I am looking forward to continuing my weight loss journey with confidence.



Thanks to this weight loss programme I know have a much healthier attitude towards food. Not only do I aspire to eat healthier on a day to day basis, but this programme has also helped with negative emotions towards food. I now don’t guilt myself when I have something “unhealthy” and try to compensate, but instead, realise that everything is ok in moderation. The programme has also helped me understand my triggers for emotional eating and how to cope with them (through different therapies). It’s led to me feeling more body confident and I now don’t need to try fad diets or crazy exercise regimes, as I can manage my diet in a healthy and balanced way.



I was unsure and really quite apprehensive about trying hypnotherapy. Lizzie put me completely at ease, she was so welcoming and professional without being at all intimidating. I had been feeling stressed from work and had difficulty sleeping. After just one session I felt totally relaxed, re charged and had the best night's sleep in ages! I cannot recommend Lizzie highly enough and I am very much looking forward to my next session with her.



I spoke with Lizzie as I had been having really horrible thoughts, especially about illness and death. Lizzie is really easy to talk to. She did a therapy called BWRT which was very relaxing and took my mind off things I had been thinking about. Since I chatted to Lizzie online I have felt so much better! 


Ascot (14 years old)

I've lost a stone in one month and I am so happy! I don't eat chocolate anymore, I don't even want it. My snacking has stopped, I feel calm and level headed as a result and I know my eating habits are so much better thanks to the hypnotherapy with Lizzie. I would really recommend the course. I feel back in control and on track now with my weight loss. 



I had a session with Lizzie to stop smoking and honestly could not recommend it enough. I have been smoking for about 8 years and have wanted to give up for a while but since the lockdown, I have found it really difficult and have been smoking a lot more than normal. Since my session with Lizzie, I have not had a single craving, It is so hard to explain but I am not interested in smoking whatsoever! Lizzie is so professional and made me feel completely at ease. I only wish I had done this hypnotherapy sooner.


London (25 years old)

I was recommended to Lizzie through a friend. Although I am an extremely confident and outgoing individual, a few events led to my anxiety and overthinking consuming every aspect of my life. I was extremely apprehensive before starting, especially with the session being online, but Lizzie put me at ease straight away through her calm and warming approach. The sessions have worked wonders for me and I couldn't recommend Lizzie enough!


Bath (age 22)

I needed some help as I have been going through some anxieties regarding my family and social life. I had feelings of jealousy and insecurity about a recent relationship. Lizzie was recommended to me and after an initial chat, she suggested that hypnotherapy may help calm my levels of anxiety. I have never had hypnotherapy before but Lizzie explained everything and as I wanted to overcome my anxieties I agreed to go ahead. The online session was incredibly relaxing and calming and by the end of the session, I felt really relaxed and more positive about my situation. Thank you very much Lizzie for all your help.



Working with Lizzie really changed my perspective on how to control my eating. It was simple and easy to gain back control. Lizzie provides a clear and honest approach to achieving your goals. The online sessions are great and you come out of them feeling relaxed and prepared. 



After suffering silently for years with emetophobia (fear of vomiting) and experiencing heightened anxiety since the beginning of the pandemic, I decided to speak to Lizzie online following a friend's recommendation. Lizzie's approach was calm and sympathetic, and after taking the time to understand exactly how I was feeling, she suggested that we tried BWRT. The therapy has helped me immensely and I can't thank Lizzie enough for her help in alleviating my anxiety.


Bath (age 23)

I have had a phobia regarding dogs all of my life. Any large dog, especially those perceived to be 'dangerous or scary', have always made me feel really anxious. I came to see Lizzie after a recommendation and after a one hour session with BWRT, the change was transformational. After seeing Lizzie, I immediately felt much more comfortable around dogs. Thanks so much Lizzie.



Two of our children have had hypnotherapy with Lizzie on different occasions, when they have struggled with anxiety and worrying thoughts. Both felt so much better after just one session, and the change in them has been remarkable. Lizzie has a lovely way of connecting with people of all ages and understanding their needs, and our children felt comforted, supported and understood when speaking to her. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Lizzie to anyone struggling with anxiety or phobias. 



I was recommended Lizzie by a friend as I wanted help with a long-standing habit of picking at my skin that was causing me a lot of anxiety and affecting my confidence. Lizzie helped me to understand why I had developed this habit and used a hypnosis technique called suggestion to help me realise that it had no benefit to me. As well as this, Lizzie gave me advice about my sleep, something I also struggle with. My two online sessions with Lizzie have worked wonders in giving me the knowledge and assurance that this habit serves me no purpose. My confidence grows by the day as my skin heals and I feel better in myself. Thank you!



I visited Lizzie last year to help with weight management and deal with my obsession with snacking. She was very thorough in learning about my history and suggested I undergo some hypnotherapy. The sessions were incredibly effective and made a significant and positive change to my eating habits. She has the ability to put you at ease and a voice which is perfect for hypnotherapy. At no time did I feel out of control or 'manipulated' which I know is a fear for some people regarding this type of therapy. I would strongly recommend Lizzie and hypnotherapy.
