Stop Smoking

Dear Liz,

I can't thank you enough for stopping my smoking addiction last year.

I still can't believe that after 23 years in which I smoked over 160,000 cigarettes at a cost of over £40,000 you ended my addiction inside 90 minutes! Unquestionably the best money I ever spent!

The truth is I was extremely skeptical about hypnotherapy and if I am honest I only came out of desperation as I had already tried everything else. Even after the hypnotherapy session I told friends I didn't really believe in it!

Yet the following day I found myself confidently saying "I don't smoke anymore" rather than hedging my bets with the usual "I'm trying to give up" and I didn't feel in peril of actually buying cigarettes as "I don't smoke anymore".

I have no problem in pubs and my partner still smokes. I am free of the addiction, saving money and my health has improved thanks to your intervention.

My sincere thanks

Tony Roberts



Social Phobia and Blushing

I went to Liz with a symptom that I had never believed could be ‘cured’ – blushing. Embarrassing feelings that stopped me so many times from being myself. Back than I did not realise that it is caused by social phobia. My ‘soul’ was so crippled by being afraid of meeting people, talking to them, and fighting every day to be liked and accepted. 

Liz helped me to stop blushing but on it’s way she ‘fixed’ all imperfections that I had about myself. Thanks to Liz I can finally be who I always wanted to be, self confident and happy myself. As far I am concerned there is no better treatment for social phobia than hypnoanalysis with Liz.

Thank you Liz.




Social Phobia and Blushing

Hi Liz

Sorry it's taken so long to get this to you but I have been out and about having a fantastic time - so much so that I forgot to write and thank you for all your help.

Originally I came to you with a severe social phobia. I am just feeling so good after my sessions with you. My colleagues at work are amazed at the difference in me and I have given your number to a friend who wants to come and see you as well.

It was great working with you and I appreciate your kindness - I always felt safe.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart.




Stop Smoking

Dear Liz

I wanted to get in touch and let you know how great it is being a non-smoker! It's been 4 weeks since I came to see you and I haven't even thought about smoking. My partner still smokes which I thought would be a problem but you were right... I'm not tempted at all.

It was so easy and I'm feeling well chuffed :-)

Thanks a million.





Dear Liz,

Been a really happy few weeks and I’ve you to thank for that.  Been wondering how to write this. I've scanned through a fair number of testimonials over the years and always been a pretty tough judge.  I always looked for that real grit / faith that something could finally work and end all this hopping from problem to problem.  By the time I came to see you all problems had rolled into one.  Over the years food has led to drugs, drugs led back to food, bulimia and more distress.  Calm one down and another popped up - bit like trying to sit down on a bouncy castle!

I now feel calmer, more confident and in the nicest of ways – less bothered.  Feel very lucky to have stumbled into it.  Having never heard of hypnoanalysis it was a massive stroke of luck to have found you.  Feel very normal - nothing too special to me and nothing too shabby… just normal, at last.

Thank you.  It’s such a massive relief to finish it.  To anyone reading this- it’s a brave thing to do, I’d recommend it.

All my love,




Vaginismus, Weight Issues and Self Esteem Issues

Dear Liz,
The fitness instructor in the gym I recently joined said to me the other day that though he couldn't quite put his finger on it he could see that my looks had changed dramatically since I started there. It was clear to me that he thought that the exercise had worked wonders for me. I let him stay with his beliefs, but I knew better.
When I came to see you, I came with a life time of stuttering /stammering, years of suffering from vaginismus and a weight gain of 30 kgs from 5 years of binge eating. My self worth was almost non existent, I thought of myself as disgusting and I found little joy from anything in life. I had had several depressions, was on antidepressants and had over the years spent a small fortune on psychotherapy.
Through my sessions with you I have now overcome issues that I had never thought possible. As surreal as these issues were to me, so as surreal are the joy, the self confidence and the love for myself and my life that I now feel. I have been given a new life, a life for which I can't thank you enough. You helped me through the hardest of times, you made me feel safe and you always conducted the therapy with the highest standard of professionalism.
I cannot stop smiling and I know that it's not because of the exercise! I now stutter less and less. I'm more confident that I can shift the extra kilos and I know that I will go back to having sex again. I now also believe that I've got what it takes to fulfill my life long dream of becoming a writer. I find more joy in my children and we have started to have a lot of fun together. Thank you! I hope that you will continue to practice for many years to come so that other people too can experience the amazing feeling it is to wake up every morning and feel true happiness.
With all my love




Panic Attacks on the Tube

Before I found Liz Hogon, I had undertaken counselling and therapy on and off for years. I worked through various issues however I knew there was something else that I couldn’t get to the bottom of. I also had several fears that were making my life difficult. Mainly these consisted of the tube, lifts and planes. I decided I needed to work in a different way to address these issues. I consider myself lucky to have found Liz after one disastrous session with another hypnotherapist. During my initial interview with Liz I felt immediately at ease - it was so different from my previous experience and I wanted to start as soon as possible.

Liz is the most comfortable person to work with as she is completely non-judgmental and has a wonderful sense of humour that breaks the ice at each session. It’s like a fast track therapy where you dump all the hurt and humiliation. I never felt any awkwardness with Liz; she is so easy to work with. I wish I had found her years ago.  I noticed early on that I felt more confident on tube journeys and started using it much more.

Now it’s over I notice things are shifting slowly. This is such deep work I know that everything is not going to change immediately but it is happening. This is the most important and significant investment I have ever made and it was really worth it.





I went to Liz originally hoping for some help with insomnia. Although I am a pretty private person, upon meeting Liz I felt instantly comfortable discussing extremely personal issues with her. She quickly identified some not so well hidden underlying social anxieties and I soon began a course of pure hypnoanalysis. I didn't always understand or like the significance of the things that came up, but Liz's guidance, encouragement, and humour kept me going. I felt very protected and like nothing I said could have shocked her, even if it shocked me. 

I had to stop the sessions mid way due to the wonderful surprise of falling pregnant - a surprise because I had been trying everything to conceive for over two years and had even scheduled medical fertility treatments for later in the year. Amazingly, this happened shortly after a session where I finally started to address a deeply buried past experience with a termination - which I wrongly believed I had already "dealt with" emotionally years ago.

It is incredible what has been subtly yet powerfully shifted even after this short a time. My husband keeps commenting that I am more relaxed than I have ever been, which is not really what either of us expect from me. I did not go into the therapy with thoughts of it helping me conceive, but I feel absolutely sure that my fertility would have continued to be challenged had I not released so much and that certain subconscious blocks at welcoming a pregnancy would have stayed in place. This miraculous result speaks for itself and I am so happy that I am able to just relax and enjoy it, along with every other aspect of my life, instead of being my former over-thinking self.
I am extremely grateful for Liz's help, wisdom, compassion, generosity, and non-judgment.




Social Phobia

Liz, Thank you so much for helping me uncover the cause of many problems in my life. You told me I had Social Phobia and took me on an incredible journey where I could not only dump a great deal of guilt and grief, but you helped me uncover something I had locked deep away for no-one to find. Through the 12 sessions we were together I, and others, noticed a change in me. I couldn't put my finger on what exactly was happening but I was feeling a sense of weight being lifted off me and a big knot being removed from my stomach and chest. Now, if I'm completely honest, I feel so confident, happy and a little unstoppable!

Thanks so much for everything Liz.




Depression, Addictions, Anxiety and Lack of Confidence

Liz, I can't thank you enough... when I came to see you initially I felt
like my life was one big emotional car crash. I had pretty much tried
everything. Various therapists to 12 step programmes and all the bullshit
self help books in known print. I'd been fighting all my life - obsessions,
compulsions, abusive relationships, addictions, anxiety, depression, low
self esteem, anger... you know, all the usual suspects.

To be honest with my history I really didn't think you would take me on.
However, I've never felt so held and supported throughout the whole
process of hypnoanalysis.  It wasn't easy but you enabled me to see it
through with encouragement... I've never felt so accepted.  I love your
down to earth approach - you're so 'normal' yet professional and the care
that you take has at times left me moved beyond words.

So five months later, there's no anger anymore, I feel calm, confident and
now have an awareness of where I am in life. I've started to value and
respect myself and others. I've never felt so happy and 'sorted'.  I keep
saying to people "I've never been in a better place in my life" and they
look at me strangely. Brilliant!

I'm not quite sure how it works Liz,  but seeing you was the most
intelligent thing I've done in the past 30 years.  Thank you for

C x



Panic Attacks

I am 28 years old and I went to Liz after experiencing panic attacks for two years, it had pretty much destroyed my life. I felt ill every day and could not function but after finishing her programme I feel more confident, my panic attacks have stopped and i am finally reconnecting with the world. I cannot thank her enough and would recommend her to anyone who has anxiety or panic attacks.




Blushing and Social Anxiety

When I first came in to see you for my blushing I wasn't really sure how it all worked & what to think but after the first initial consultation I felt completely comfortable.

Before meeting you I actually believed I was going to have no career because every time I wanted to study or try and further my career my blushing would get in the way. I would go very shy and believed that I was never going to get anywhere in life and I would have to learn to deal with it.

It's really hard to explain the feeling after my last session. It's such a good feeling. Now I finally feel as though I like myself, I have ambitions, feel confident and so completely comfortable with everything around me. I know this sounds a bit over the top but it is all so true. I can honestly say I probably would not have believed this reading it but now it's happened to me and I want everyone to experience it. I am looking forward to my future and want to start studying asap.

Now all I can say is thank you... thank you for making the sessions so comfortable, thank you for putting the smile back on my face, thank you for changing my life.




Blushing, Anxiety, Bruxism, IBS and Phobias

I have always been the type of person who would be described as "sensitive" - I blushed really easily, worried myself sick about what people thought of me, hated public speaking and felt guilty for the slightest things. Physically I was prone to tension headaches, had a phobia of blood, I ground my teeth and had IBS. I had tried counselling a few times in the past & whilst I initially felt better talking to someone, the results were never long lasting.

After a particularly difficult time I felt that I could no longer cope with my anxiety & what I now know were social phobias. A friend suggested trying hypnotherapy & after reading the testimonials on Liz's website I thought it was at least worth a try.

Straight away when I met Liz I felt completely at ease - she was patient in explaining everything, accepting of my doubts and has a very kind and humorous way about her which made me feel very safe. Throughout the therapy I experienced a rollercoaster of emotions and, given that all the "work" happened subconsciously, I was not entirely convinced it was helping me. However, Liz was always very supportive and caring, at the same time keeping me in good spirits and encouraging me.

Since finishing my therapy the changes in myself are subtle - I am still the same person I have always been, just more calm, confident and relaxed. I no longer worry about insignificant things nor get wracked with guilt when I say no to people. Physically I have a lot less headaches and I'm sleeping much better. My relationship with my boyfriend has improved so much and I feel really happy. This has been one of the best things I have ever done for myself and I'm so glad I persevered even when I felt I was beyond help.

I would encourage anyone who is thinking about therapy to consider seeing Liz - it's such a cliche but she has definitely changed my life.




Anxiety Attacks

Liz was recommended to me by a psychotherapist who felt I needed a 'quicker solution' as I had been suffering from severe anxiety attacks for a couple of months. Every day during that period was a struggle, I hated leaving the house, being alone, even leaving my bedroom seemed the hugest task for me. I had no idea why they had started happening and I was literally terrified all the time. When my breathing started becoming irregular I would panic and it worsen. I felt so trapped and knew that I simply couldn't continue in that way.

I was initially sceptical when I was told about Liz because I didn't understand the way her therapy worked. Liz changed my life. In 8 weeks I went from a scared individual who feared all public transport (for fear of an attack) to a relaxed, happy and carefree one who is having the best time now. Liz made me feel confident, she made me laugh, and her way of working was simply amazing. I trusted her implicitly throughout and it worked.

I know how awful I felt all those months ago and after seeing Liz I know that those dark days will not return.




Depression and Weightloss

I suffered from depression and overeating for 20 years. I had tried everything - every pill, every diet, every 'headshrinker', every self-help book, doctors and gurus. Nothing worked. I was so stressed I felt on the verge of a breakdown and believed that I was going to be a messed up and unhappy person for the rest of my life.

After my sessions with Liz I find that my stress levels have been drastically reduced. I am calm, confident and free from obsessive thoughts. I have my eating under control, have successfully quit smoking and I'm finding my relationship with my husband is more relaxed and fulfilling.

Liz is an ethical practitioner who genuinely cares about her clients becoming well. I never imagined hypnoanalysis would work - and yet it has! I feel truly free for the first time in my life. From the bottom of my heart... thank you Liz.




Emetophobia and Panic Attacks

I was very apprehensive and sceptical to start the therapy and wasn’t quite convinced that someone or some type of therapy could help me. I found Liz on the internet, called her and booked an initial consultation, where after I decided to take the leap and begin my therapy.

I suffered from an intense phobia of vomiting and also panic attacks, which resulted in me not eating properly (losing 10 kilograms), rarely leaving the house, avoiding all modes of public transport and I was addicted to tranquilisers for my anxiety and anti–nausea pills for my emetophobia. On average I was consuming about 8 pills a day. I felt extremely desperate and alone.

I have just finished the therapy and I can honestly say that I feel like a different person. I feel calm, I feel positive, but most importantly I have not had a panic attack for several weeks and have been freed from the claws of my emetophobia.

I am socialising more, am travelling on the bus/tube without any anxiety, have put on weight and have stopped taking my daily dose of tranquilisers and anti-nausea pills.

From start to finish, Liz made me feel extremely comfortable which is crucial for the therapy to work. She is patient, understanding, confidential and most importantly non-judgemental.

I wish our paths had crossed years ago, but I believe it came to me at the right time. Seeing Liz and having her help and guide me through each session was the best investment I have ever and will ever make. You cannot put a price on one’s mental health.

Thank you Liz, here’s to a fantastic 2010! x




I'm living through what would have normally been my worst nightmare. Went to watch my daughter's first school assembly and in the middle my younger daughter was sick everywhere. And she's been sick 3 times since. But I'm not panicking - I'm calm and in control. It's such a relief!

Relationship Issues

After years of psychotherapy, which at the time really helped me cope with a bout of depression as well as come to terms with some childhood issues & a problematic relationship with my father, I still felt something was missing or not quite right in my life but I didn't want to go back into psychotherapy.

I had a history of short failed relationships. For years I would chase after men who would constantly reject me or I would find ways to create problems and make the relationship end. I spent years watching my single friends moving on with their lives, getting married and having children and I felt I was stuck in a hamster wheel unable to move on. I had resigned myself to the fact that I would never be able to get married.

On a deeper level I had a feeling that I would never be happy and truly fulfilled, a feeling of 'better not do anything just in case'. My therapist used to call it the 'What if Syndrome' - I lived my life too scared to do anything in case the bad things I predicted might happen.

I met a guy just before I started seeing Liz, an amazing guy... handsome, intelligent, charming, great fun and so kind and adoring. Of course after several happy months I started to question this but this time it was more difficult as there wasn't a single thing about this guy I could pick a fault with. After talking to a friend about how I was feeling she recommended I see Liz, a truly life changing moment. After every session I felt I had shifted huge amounts of emotional crap, stuff I thought I had dealt with and other stuff that I didn't even imagine could have an effect on me after all these years.

The end result was that I started to feel more positive about myself and about my relationship. It was as if I was beginning to realise that I did actually deserve this amazing guy and to have an amazing and fulfilled life like everyone else around me. More importantly, as I began to believe, these things actually started to happen. After 9 months of dating he proposed at the top of a mountain... followed by a joyous acceptance from me... promptly followed by the white wedding I had always dreamed of but never thought possible... and now 6 weeks into married life I have a very different outlook on life.

I am happy, content, fulfilled but best of all those feelings of dread and worry about what might happen are replaced with a growing sense of positivity and a knowing that I will have the happy ending I so deserve!

Thanks Liz for helping me on my journey and for helping me see the light at the end of the tunnel!




Social Phobia and Relationship Issues

I hoped she’d hypnotise me but I pretended I was too smart to really expect that when she said that there was no such thing as a hypnotised feeling.  When I went to Liz, I’d been feeling so desperate that I thought hypnotising me or somehow rewiring my brain was the answer. Liz did something very different.

In working with me she was down to earth, hugely compassionate and was like my best friend or health partner.  You know the type; gets right up your nose, because their commitment is greater than your complaints.  That was Liz.

Working with Liz helped me to move on from stuff that was deeply buried (more than 50 years old) but eating away at me nonetheless.

I’ve finally begun to understand why I’ve carried such a great sadness for so long.  I’ve also begun to build the foundations of a peaceful life.

Thank you, Liz, for being a magnificent person, with a big heart and a bigger commitment to me.  I now feel that I’m maturing emotionally.




Hi Liz

I wanted to wait for a while before I sent this to you because, to be really honest, I never believed this would work. Nothing else ever has!

Anyway I came to see you in February feeling fat, desperate and a total failure. Had tried every diet known and some of them helped for a little while but eventually the weight went back on leaving me feeling even more of a failure.

After seeing that guy on ACA I decided to give the Hypno-Band a go although the group sessions were never going to be my thing. It's the best thing I've ever done!!!!

Here I am after 3 months and the weight is coming off every week. But the best part is that I am not dieting. For the first time in my life I'm not dieting but I'm losing weight (can you tell I still don't believe it?!!). I am so peaceful around food and eating small portions - I even know how to listen to my body now when it tells me it's full. That's never happened before :-)

Thanks Liz for your help and compassion. I've got my life back.



Weight Loss

I have spent nearly all of my life struggling with food. Always been on some diet or another and exercising like a mad woman to try and keep my weight under control.

Came to see you as a last resort and didn't believe you could REALLY help me but here I am 2 months later and I'm over the moon. It's all been so easy. No more struggle. No more staying home from parties because I had no control around food. I don't even notice the food there now as I'm too busy talking to people!

It's the best investment I've ever made and I've recommended you to quite a few of my friends. Thanks again. x

I thought I would give you a little bit of an update on my progress. I continue to lose weight even though it seems slow but now I believe that its a better way to do it. I'm learning patience as well!

Feel like I have lots more energy and I'm sleeping much better (don't understand how that works but I'm grateful). I bought some new clothes on Saturday as the old ones are hanging off me now and already I've dropped a dress size.

Really just wanted to let you know that I'm doing really well and will continue to keep you posted.
