Beth Hilton - New Directions Hypnotherapy
01342 712969 / 07411 699241
I am a fully qualified Clinical Hypnotherapist with a Diploma in Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy (HDP) and Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma (HDP) I am also trained in Mindfullness.
My background is over fifteen years working with the NHS where patient outcomes are my top priority. My enthusiasm for Hypnotherapy began when a close friend qualified as a hypnotherapist and treated me for anxiety and confidence issues at work. I was absolutely astounded by the results that were achieved and so my passion for Hypnotherapy began.
I trained at the prestigious Clifton Practice in Bristol where we use a combination of CBT, NLP to help clients find the solutions to difficulties or recovery. Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is a proven way of creating positive and enduring change in our lives. This modern approach to hypnotherapy combines clinically proven therapeutic techniques using a deep state relaxation (trance) to help people make significant positive changes in their lives within relatively short periods of time.
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy differs from earlier forms of therapy by encouraging you to focus on a positive image of your problem-free future rather than looking backwards for the cause or symptoms of the problem itself. It is a highly effective and liberating approach.
I am fully registered with the following professional organisations:
The Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (AfSFH)
The General Hypnotherapy Standards Council (GHSC)
The National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH)
I am fully qualified and committed to the highest standards. I am insured and adhere to a professional code of standards. I am totally bound by the strict Code of Ethics governed by the British Academy of Hypnosis and the data protection act 2003. All sessions are fully insured and governed by the Hypnotherapy Code of Practice. Complete insurance details available upon request. Please be assured that all clients receive a confidential, professional and friendly service at all times

IBS Sufferer –Sussex
Thank you for your patience and for helping me to finally overcome my fear of flying, our honeymoon was a dream. On the way back we hit turbulence so bad the lady next to me threw up! Although I wasn’t feeling too happy, I kept calm, rather than defaulting to my usual screaming and shouting panicking self.
Flying Phobia – Surrey
I have had a weight problem for as long as I can remember and have tried every diet or club going. I decided to seek Beth’s help after I noticed it having an impact on my daughter’s health too.
Before seeing Beth, I rarely exercised, ate all the wrong things and at the wrong times and in the wrong amounts! I knew it was wrong, but seemed unable to change, the task ahead seeming mammoth. I am pleased to say I have gone from a size 22 to a size 18 in the last year, since seeing Beth. I have changed my habits and am now exercising three times a week and eating healthily, as are my family!
Weight Loss -Surrey
“I have always been very capable and driven. We have five children, a menagerie of pets and a huge garden. I worked outside the home in two different jobs each day and I studied in my ‘spare time’ gaining an A Level in History. I exercised every day.
Out of the blue-or perhaps not-looking back, I found myself depressed and anxious: smothered in feelings of guilt. I dreaded getting out of bed in the morning, everything in my life had gone out of control and I had lost the confidence to do anything about it. I was under a cloud of misery, that hard as I tried I couldn’t snap out of.
I didn’t admit anything was wrong to anyone and believed I had managed to keep my feelings hidden, and then my sister suggested I see Beth. Up till then I had never been to any therapists- I had had no need to. I wasn’t sure about hypnosis and I was relieved to find Beth to be professional, understanding, kind and funny!
For me hypnosis wasn’t an immediate cure, it took almost six months, but then I was quite depressed for about two years. Now after Beth’s help, I am back to normal and enjoying my life. I saw Beth regularly and listened to the CD she gave me to keep and I learnt that changing the way you look at things is important: you create your own reality.
Beth has since helped me overcome dental phobia (which I believe was justified!) this was after just one session.

26 years of never visiting the dentist! After one session with Beth I booked an appointment the next day! The following week I went and saw him (luckily only a small filling required!!) and was calm and in control! Thank you so much!!

Lack of Self Confidence - London
Hi Beth, I have to say a big thank you to you. I'm not sure how and I was still quite scared but I think I did my best skiing I've ever done! I can't explain it but all I can say is I was much more relaxed? Who knows what else I'll be back for in the future?
