Louise is a gentle well-informed practitioner. Trusting, caring and motivational.
Her own experiences in life were what attracted me to her practice. The tools and information learned will help me for the rest of my life.

Since seeing Louise I have learnt to take control of the issues I had regarding food which has plagued me for years and am now achieving the weight loss that has been so difficult in the past. Louise is easy to talk to, sympathetic and highly professional and I would wholeheartedly recommend her."
Louise made me feel at ease from the start and was very understanding.

How will you know you are better?
Allow me to be a part of your journey because I'm only as good as my patients' successes. The following are just a few of the five-star reviews that I regularly receive from past patients.
Exam Anxiety - I Passed!
I went to see Louise 7 years ago to help me with blushing and anxiety. Throughout the hypnotherapy sessions, Louise helped me understand my triggers and I was able to deal with them. Louise gave me the tools to help myself and taught me how to do self-hypnosis which I use to re-centre myself.
I went to see Louise again on Friday as I had an exam on Saturday. Due to failing the maths exam twice and if I failed it a third time I would lock myself out of teacher training for two years. I had built it up so much that's I was full of anxiety and fear of failing.
The hypnotherapy session with Louise was fantastic and she helped me to clear my mind, believe in myself and relax.
Whilst taking my exam I was able to push the pressure of having to pass away and I was able to focus clearly on the questions.
I passed the exam!! :0)
Thank you so much, Louise x
I went to Louise for a fear of flying. I found after only a couple of sessions she really calmed me down and was very quick to understand me and giving me coping techniques to overcome my fear which I did. I also feel that Louise has been amazing always there for words of guidance I would strongly recommend her.

Recovery from chronic pain
Louise literally helped me to see the light. Firstly, to truly understand the psychological roots of my chronic pain. Secondly, to uncover and deal with the unsaid emotions and unhandled life situations which were adding fuel to the fire of my pain.
Amazing work, back on track. Thanks, Louise :-)
I don’t know how she did it but after seeing Louise Levy last Friday I went home put my teeth in and I was absolutely fine. No gagging whatsoever. I have been keeping them in all the time now. Going out and eating in them-it is amazing. When I came to Louise for hypnotherapy I was desperately trying to wear my new false teeth without gagging. I had very negative thoughts thinking it would not work and cannot believe what has happened after just one visit it is amazing. I had a dental appointment yesterday and my Dentist was most impressed as he knew how bad I was. I hope you don’t mind Louise but they have put your contact details onto their computer so that any other patients with my problem can contact you.I am going to the O A P
Christmas party today and I feel so happy that I can wear my teeth and “Smile”.
Thank you Louise for helping me. If ever I have any problems I shall come to you.
Thank you Louise
Louise is a very experienced therapist. She listened without judgment, gently guided me to see the root of the problems and taught me techniques to deal with them. I always felt much more positive and light-hearted after each session. Thank you Louise.
Thank you Louise
When I first met Louise I was an emotional wreck, I really wasn't feeling myself at all.
I was recommended to Louise when I met her she instantly made me feel at ease, she didn't judge me at all.
I had 6 hypnotherapy sessions in all and I can honestly say I am 100% better/happier and back to thinking/feeling like me again.
Thank you again, Louise!
After just 4 sessions with Louise, my teenage son has been transformed from a nervous depressed state back to his old fun loving self.
He spent 18 months feeling unwell/nauseous, sleeping badly, hardly eating and struggling to go out for fear of actually being unwell.
With Louise's help, he is now working hard, sleeping and eating normally and really enjoying life.
Wish we hadn't waited so long to seek help!
I highly recommend Louise Levy.
Life Changing! I'm so much happier!
I first went to Louise because I was suffering from fibromyalgia and wanted some support in controlling my pain. Louise explained to me that my pain was actually caused by my negative and repressed emotions. We addressed how unhappy I was at work and at home and what was holding me back from making changes. Louise used a combination of hypnotherapy CBT and coaching to help me work through issues of low self-esteem and not feeling able to express myself. Words can't express how grateful I am,I can't thank Louise enough. I now no longer dwell on negative thoughts and feel so much more assertive and confident at work. The best thing is that I'm now completely free from pain. I can't thank Louise enough she literally gave me my life back. The best money I ever spent.
You put the fun back into motherhood!
We contacted Louise Levy late in 2015 because we have an eight-year-old son who is autistic and was struggling with anxiety issues and was displaying some of the early signs of OCD.
Though our son had had some counselling before, he'd never really enjoyed the process and we'd struggled to find someone and somewhere where he felt comfortable enough to relax and talk about the things that were Read More
I went to see Louise because in the past I have suffered bad stage nerves. She is an excellent listener and came up with a treatment plan quickly. I only saw her 4 times after my initial assessment and, after my last treatment, I didn't know if it had worked. I am pleased to say it did! I have just completed a 17 performance run in Panto and thoroughly enjoyed it, nothing but a slight flutter (which you need) Thank you, Louise, you certainly put the fun back into it for me.
Chronic Pain Gone!
I 'stumbled' across Louise in a desperate attempt to help a very painful condition I had called Plantar Fasciitis. Since October last year, I have been a prisoner in my home, unable to walk without being in tremendous and crippling pain. In just 5 short sessions Louise has transformed my life. I am now able to enjoy regular walks again and my feet are feeling so much better. Louise is professional, approachable, understanding and warm. She managed to cut through years of issues in a clear and swift approach that really worked for me. I would highly recommend Louise to anyone who needs help. I can't praise her highly enough. Thank you, Louise.
My experience with Louise has turned out to be very positive. In just 6 sessions, so many issues have been tackled successfully, these would have taken many months or possibly years of psychotherapy. Limiting beliefs have been dissolved, confidence and self-worth have emerged. Friends and family have noticed a big change in me. I highly recommend Louise.
Louise makes you feel at ease, anybody thinking of going to see Louise I would highly recommend! really lovely lady and very good at her job.
Finally free from three decades of back pain!
I started having back problems in my teens. Three decades later I was still suffering and was having a particularly bad bout when I came across the work of Dr John Sarno and his theory of TMS. Despite TMS being relatively unknown in this country, Louise was one of a handful of therapists who understood the theory and, amazingly, her clinic was located very close to me in London.
To cut a long story short, Louise was the catalyst that kick-started my recovery. She was patient with me as I struggled to come to terms with my condition is mental, not physical, and she gave me many useful and practical tools that I continue to work with. My improvement was by no means instant, but 5 months since first seeing Louise and working with her through the SIRPA recovery programme, I am 90% better and confident that I am finally on the right track.
I highly recommend Louise, especially to anyone suspecting a psychosomatic illness. Having been there herself, she is better qualified than most to help you. I found the hypnotherapy particularly valuable in getting to the root cause of many of my symptoms.
She is also a kind and caring person who makes you feel supported and was very accessible between sessions.
Recommended by a friend - so grateful!
My son had suffered from separation issues for several years and often would get very anxious before going away with the school, scouts, anywhere without us, his parents. Louise was recommended very highly by a friend. My son was understandably nervous, but Louise took the time to explain everything thoroughly, allowing him to make decisions to help him throughout the hypnotherapy sessions, all which resulted in a very positive outcome. For the first time, he looked forward to going away without stressing and felt more in control of his feelings. For me, as his mother wondering whether I was doing the right thing for him, I would answer that with a very definite YES!
Daughter so much happier - Am so relieved!
I can't thank Louise enough, I want to thank her for all what she has done for our daughter. I have seen a big change in her over the last few weeks after completing her treatment. I feel that I have my daughter back she is laughing and more positive about everything! Before seeing Louise I was very concerned about my daughters general well being. It was a very worrying and painful time for our family. Thankfully now after visiting Louise, our daughter is now looking forward and not looking back!
Careers Advice and Guidance - Professional support when it was needed
I have had only one session with Louise Levy, for careers coaching, and I have found it extremely helpful. Having felt completely lost, once deciding to change career, Louise was able to help discover my skill set and give direction in my career search. I no longer feel as though I’m searching for a needle in a haystack.
Thank you for your guidance
After a very desperate time, my Aunt had found Louise’s details on the internet and thought she was best suited to help my mum with the problems she had been suffering. My mum had been through sleepless nights, anxiousness and a childhood phobia related to her ear.
Louise took the time to really understand what the issues were and then gave practical and sound advice. Louise was great at identifying deeper rooted issues that my mum wasn’t even aware of and helped address them.
The hypnotherapy was great and really worked for mum. It has felt like a long journey and Louise has been so patient and helped my mum’s confidence and self-belief. We cannot thank her enough and I know that she is always there if we ever need her in the future.
If you are suffering from any emotional difficulty I can highly recommend Louise and know you will get results and be a stronger person able to cope with anything in life.
I understand myself so much better
Having seen Louise on a few occasions for different personal issues relating to stress, pain, alcohol and simply understanding myself better I can say with absolute confidence that her services have never let me down. Always professional, kind and so understanding with a wide knowledge of everything that I have taken in with me (emotionally speaking).
Thomas Wyatt-Minter - Transformative!
This has really transformed my life for the better. I now look forward to what each day brings.
And I embrace the future with a confident and positive attitude.
Thank you Louise!
