Laura Rawling


Laura discovered the benefits of Hypnotherapy when she used it to overcome her longstanding fear of giving birth. She realised the brain isn’t fixed – and we have much greater control over our lives and how we cope with its challenges – than we might realise. Inspired by the potential of Solution Focused Hypnotherapy, Laura trained to become a clinical Hypnotherapist at the Clifton Practice in Bristol.


 Laura is passionate about helping clients successfully shift their focus from the problem to the solution – and into a positive frame of mind. She uses Hypnotherapy to bring relief to a range of problems – including anxiety, stress, stopping smoking, menopause, trauma, weight-loss, insomnia, and fear of birth.


 Alongside Hypnotherapy, Laura is also a broadcaster and media trainer. Using skills from those roles, she brings a wealth of experience to help people with public speaking, confidence and delivering presentations.

The session was absolutely brilliant. For someone like me who is a chronic over thinker, to actually walk out feeling so refreshed was brilliant! Thank you!

Thank you for making such a big difference for my teenage daughter going through such a tough time wih anxiety and panic attacks. She is feeling much more confident in her ability to deal with situations.

Lucy Brown


Having had first hand experience of Solution Focused Hypnotherapy Lucy is passionate about spreading the word and  committed to helping you get the results that you want.

Lucy has a particular interest in anxiety, stress, insomnia, weight issues, fears and phobias, depression, giving up smoking, motivation, confidence, panic attacks and addictions.

Lucy has completed further training in OCD, PTSD, pain management, fertility, NLP and the science behind the mind/body connection. She also runs her own busy practices in Cirencester & Malmesbury, and gives regular talks to local support groups, delivering an informative presentation about how the brain works and how to make it work for you, in order to enhance wellbeing, confidence, motivation and achievement.

” I went to Lucy three months ago with a drinking problem which I believed could be quickly resolved through targeted treatment. She helped me to understand that to achieve a lasting improvement, a more holistic approach was required. She introduced me to a remarkably subtle but powerful approach which felt natural and instinctive and in which I felt in control at every stage. Lucy mentored me through the largest period of personal and emotional change in my life, guiding me towards a new way of thinking and feeling in which I have resumed my position at the centre of my own life. She supported me with sensitivity and intelligence, and helped me to find the tools I needed to make major changes in my life with confidence, control and positivity. I came to the end of my therapy sessions as a fundamentally different, and altogether better person.”

Liz Smart

Bsc (Hons), RN, DSFH, HPD, AfSFH

Liz is an experienced Solution Focused Hypnotherapist.  Having a BSc (Hons) in healthcare led her to an interest in evidence-based practice and wanting the best possible learning platform. Liz, like all therapists at Old Town Hypnotherapy, completed her training at the Clifton Practice training school, in Bristol, the leading Hypnotherapy/Psychotherapy school specialising in Solution Focused Therapy.

 In addition to the Diploma, Liz has completed a course in Muss rewind, which is specifically for people who suffer with PTSD. 

 Liz has been a registered nurse for 24 years, which gives her an understanding of a variety of diseases and has a special interest in pain and how to overcome it. 

I started having hypnotherapy with Liz to help with anxiety.  Throughout the sessions, Liz has shown compassion and empathy putting me at ease and helping me to understand how to control my response to triggers.  I really enjoyed the sessions and felt Liz understood my needs from the start.

I wanted to give up smoking but didn’t want to use substitutions.  After a one and a half hours solution focused hypnotherapy  session, I haven’t looked back and I am proud to say that I am now a non-smoker.
