About me

Is Thinking Room the right place for you?

If you find yourself looking for help or support around issues like stress and anxiety, bad habits you need to change or overcome, fears or phobias or an inability to get on with things, Liz at Thinking Room could help you.

Are you having a tough time with personal or professional relationships that are causing you distress or are you too shy or lack the assertiveness to say no or speak up for yourself at the right time and in the right place? Thinking Room has worked with lots of people in a similar position and helped them move on, change their behaviour or gained the confidence to speak out. Liz has also had great success around performance issues with professional golfers, Olympic athletes, singers and actors. With a background in education at all levels Liz is happy to work with children and teenagers and will undertake family work and couple relationship work.

Clients come from a diverse range of backgrounds and ages with the youngest being 7 and the oldest being 89 (up to now!). It’s never too late to find out what impact can be had on physical or mental health and wellbeing and how this can create positive benefits across all aspects of life at home, work or play.

If you want or need to change your life in some way, you might want to wait a few days or just make an appointment and get started. I know that sometimes, making that appointment is the most difficult step. I think you will find our first discussion or meeting will help put you at ease. And, don’t worry if you don’t see the words you would use to describe your issues or concerns here. Everyone is different and one of the things we specialise in here at Thinking Room is treating you as an individual.

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained at the internationally renowned Quest Institute with Trevor Silvestor, author and acknowledged expert in Cognitive Hypnotherapy and Word Weaving.

My professional qualifications include the externally accredited HPD, Certificate in Cognitive Hypnotherapy and Word Weaving, Master Practitioner NLP and various Coaching and Training qualifications.

I belong to several professional bodies and continue to explore and undertake professional development courses to improve and expand my skill base including:

  • Accelerated Learning Techniques
  • Mind Body Connections to enhance health and well-being
  • Coaching
  • Training the Trainer Certificate
  • Mindful Meditation
  • Stress Management
  • Enhanced Disclosure Certificate
  • HPD, Cog Hyp Dip, MPNLP
  • Member of Institute of Enterprise and Entrepreneurs (IOEE)
  • Member of Scottish Hypnotherapy Foundation (MSHF)
  • Member Complimentary and Natural Health Council (MCNHC)
  • Fully Insured

I had a very long and active career within the charity and social enterprise world with extensive experience in education and health.  I worked as a director and development worker before becoming a freelance trainer and management consultant. Eventually, I combined all these aspects and newly acquired interest and qualifications as a Cognitive Hypnotherapist and NLP Master Practitioner into Thinking Room.

Thinking Room works with individuals and business by offering a range of one to one and group solutions through flexibility of approach.

I ran my business Kingston Upon Thames covering London and the South East before moving to Scotland in 2007. I still work with some long standing clients in London and Skype and Zoom mean I don’t always have to hop on a train or plane so I am now working across Europe too.

I really enjoy working in partnership with others and have rolled out resilience and thinking skills courses in collaboration with some of the UK largest employers to schools, colleges and universities throughout the UK. I continue to work as a director for a social enterprise and volunteer whenever I can.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Hypnotherapist's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Hypnotherapist to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
