Hypnotherapy & Treatments

Used for thousands of years, hypnotherapy helps you to gain positive change in your life by allowing the hypnotherapist to guide you to a deeply relaxed and pleasant state, through the use of suggestion, to the unconscious part of your brain. This process then provides your conscious mind with the tools required to bring the changes you wish.


Lizzie at Simply Hypnotherapy can treat almost anything you require help with to change your life, and below is a list of some problems commonly treated:


Weight Management, Smoking Cessation, Anger Management, Anxiety/Panic Attacks, Obsessive/Compulsive Thoughts, Confidence building, Nightmares, Disturbed Sleep, Phobias (eg flying, spiders etc), Shyness. Even bad habits such as Nail Biting, Teeth Grinding, Thumb Sucking etc can be treated. However, every client's needs are different, so contact us with your requirements to see if we can help - Lizzie will get back to you as soon as possible.


Treatment Sessions:


The first session requires an in-depth consultation and lasts for 90 minutes (approx). All future sessions last for 60 minutes and are charged at £60 for the initial session and £60 for each additional session. The exceptions to this are smoking cessation which is a one-off session of 90 minutes and costs £120. For Hypnobirthing sessions, please contact me on the details below . The number of sessions required differs from problem to problem and person to person, so it is difficult to say how many you may need, but after the first initial session a better understanding will be gained as to the number of sessions required.

Concessions are available.

What is hypnobirthing? 

Hypnobirthing is a full antenatal training programme. It allows you to experience the magic of birth in a calm and confident manner, putting you in control so that your baby can be born calm and alert as nature intended. Hypnobirthing actively involves the father/partner, who become an integral and important part of the experience

Frequently Asked Questions

What happens when I go under?


When you are hypnotised you will experience a sense of deep relaxation. You will be guided into this pleasant state by listening to my voice. Your attention will be focussed on the suggestions I give you to promote positive change in your life. You will not be asleep and you will experience a very deep sense of relaxation that can be likened to when you are just falling asleep. You will be in full control at all times and will not do or say anything that you do not want to do. You can terminate the trance at any time.


How many sessions will I need?


The number of sessions you will require will depend on you as an individual and the problem to be resolved, but a rough estimate can usually be given on enquiry. It should be noted that everyone is different and it may take several sessions before you notice any changes. As a guide, smoking cessation generally only takes one session, but the weight management programme can be around 6 sessions (it may take more or fewer). Success of treatment does require input from both the therapist and the client, but I will always be honest with you and aim to resolve your issue as soon as possible.


What should I expect from Simply Hypnotherapy?


You will always be treated with respect and dignity. Everything that is discussed remains completely confidential and you will never be judged, regardless of your presenting problem.


On your first session there will be an in-depth questionnaire completed where your presenting problem will be explored, and any issues or misconceptions that you may have about hypnotherapy can be explored. This part of the session is essential in helping to build your individual treatment plan, which will enable you and the therapist to work together to change your unwanted behaviours or stresses for a more positive way of life.


If appropriate, you will also be taught self-hypnosis, and be provided with a recording/MP3 download to use between sessions. Self-hypnosis is a valuable tool that can help in your progress and helps reduce the reliance on the therapist to move you forward in a positive way.
