Hypnobirthing therapist in South London - Elizabeth Knights-Trench

Elizabeth Knights Trench


A friend told me about hypnotherapy eighteen years ago and I became fascinated with the concept of hypnosis. Despite the neurological explanations, I’m still amazed how it can help people see things in a completely different way. I started running birthing and parenting workshops when my sister begged me to help her prepare for her birth. I realised that with my training in therapy, hypnobirthing, my peculiar mix of hippy and practical, and of course having had a great birth experience myself – I really can help others. I ran a ‘tester’ workshop with three couples and the feedback was so good that I decided to roll it out.
