I consulted Elisa about my fear of flying. Very impressed by her thorough preparation (questionnaire followed by an exploratory discussion) after which she took a much more holistic approach. Elisa provided me with a range of tools to choose from in order to deal with problems in a variety of situations. We had four hypnotherapy sessions which were recorded for practice at home. That was and still is particularly helpful. - There is a lot to take in at first and quite a commitment to practice regularly but the effort is well worth it. - I highly recommend Elisa. She is insightful, experienced, intelligent, professional and generally a person I felt I could thoroughly trust.I did fly and reckon I have moved on from a phobic to a nervous flyer.read more

Elisa taught me what years of psychotherapy did not -- she taught me how to understand my anxiety and retrain my thought patterns. We worked together for a month and I made consistent breakthroughs during that month to overcome my anxious thoughts. I am now confident in myself that I can control my anxiety, thanks to Elisa's therapy. She recorded every session so I have her recordings on my phone whenever I need them. That's extremely valuable! I highly recommend booking a session with Elisa if you are struggling with anxiety and panic disorder but feel completely lost.read more

I was always interested in hypnotherapy but I was not sure it was going to work on me. So, when I had a sudden onset of fear of flying, I thought I'd give it a try. With Eliza's help I made real progress after only 4 appointments! If you're dealing with something similar then I definitely recommend you see Eliza. She will teach you ways to calm your mind and get over your fear.read more

I was fortunate enough to have a series of hypnocoaching sessions with Elisa over the course of the last six months, which were enjoyable and incredibly enlightening!There were so many positive aspects to the coaching it’s difficult to know where to start….Firstly, the depth of experience Elisa brought to our sessions was palpable and it was evident at all times that she was drawing on various techniques and previous experiences to specifically meet my needs and bring new clarity to my life and work. I was also particularly impressed by the way in which she helped me to stick to a focus while simultaneously listening to and responding to my specific situation and changing requirements. I felt that Elisa struck the right balance between offering guidance and encouraging thoughtful reflection. Finally, and most importantly for any kind of coaching, I felt that Elisa was warm and caring, in addition to being a very professional individual and I found that this truly aided my journey. I really feel that through Elisa’s coaching I have made many valuable self discoveries that will help me go much further towards my goals and would wholeheartedly recommend her to those seeking a coach or hypnocoach.read more

I've noticed I am calmer around authority figures and more comfortable. Also I've found I'm less critical of myself and more willing to work hard without fear of failure. And I'm happy to have made these changes just before my last year of uni when things will be hotting up.read more

Elisa could not have been more helpful. I approached her when I was at the end of my tether with anxiety while driving. In just a few sessions, I was much more confident - taking on motorways, exxploring new places and even driving in Edinburgh city centre! The mix of coaching and hypnosis is really effective, and Elisa has such a friendly yet professional manner. Would recommend.read more

One of the best decisions I have ever made was choosing to go to Elisa for hypnotherapy. I went to Elisa earlier this year to help with public speaking and some general self esteem issues. Within 4 sessions these problems had mostly vanished.This experience has truly helped change my mindset and as a result i feel better equipped to deal with various challenges in the future. As long as you are willing to be honest with yourself and put in the commitment to following her advice, I believe anyone can see huge results with her methods. I can't recommend her enough.read more

I really enjoyed my sessions with Elisa and found her to be incredibly warm, caring, thoughtful and understanding. We worked together to help me prepare for a future pregnancy after experiencing five consecutive losses. Within one session I felt I was able to let go of the blocks associated with one particular loss, and in subsequent sessions more complicated emotions such as fear, guilt and shame started to lift. Each week I stuck with the homework, which was an important part of the healing process, and in the sessions I was open and honest. I’m so grateful to Elisa for helping me shift to a much better place emotionally, mentally and physically, and I now feel safe in the knowledge that no matter what happens in the future I'll be okay. I'd happily recommend Elisa to family and friends.read more

I'd had hypnotherapy to stop smoking before, but kept relapsing so wanted to try something different. Elisa was brilliant; I found her approach to be much better to previous treatments I've had in that she really tried to understand my relationship with smoking on both a positive and negative level. She then used this knowledge to tailor the hypnosis to me personally. By the end of the session, I found myself literally jumping with joy at the thought of giving up smoking, and I honestly can't imagine myself ever starting again. Highly recommended 🙂read more

My son and I both pick and chew our finger nails. I've tried to stop for 20 years with marginal success. My son's nails were disappearing. I've delayed writing this review because I can hardly believe the results, and I felt like we would eventually regress. It has now been 4 months, and we are both doing great. We've stopped destroying our nails. Elisa was great. super professional, but also friendly.read more

Hypnotherapy with Elisa has been transformative experience. I went to Elisa to get over a life-long phobia and within the space of only three sessions I got over my phobia. Elisa created a safe environment where I felt totally at ease and comfortable, which is so important. She shifted my general outlook and now I can bring these resources into absolutely any situation! I would highly recommend hypnotherapy with Elisa to everyone!

I worked with Elisa to overcome my anxiety and fear of flying. She was very professional, took the time to fully understand my problem and then taught me some strategies to manage anxiety whenever I felt it coming. Elisa is a very understanding, empathetic and friendly hypnotherapist, and I would highly recommend her.

This was the first time I had used Hypnotherapy and I was sceptical of it all. However after 2 sessions I have successfully stopped smoking !! So I am shocked but very happy and impressed with the results although I did find it all a bit rushed.

Elisa helped me so much when I went to her this summer feeling depressed, anxious and very attached to my past and my childhood memories. After only one session of hypnotherapy, I felt so much better and everything in my life changed because I learnt to love myself and make decisions that reflect that. Elisa is kind, compassionate but at the same time helped me to be honest with myself and no longer hide behind the stories I’ve been telling myself for years. Without her helped, I couldn’t have overcome the mental block that I had. I always look forward to my sessions with Elisa because I know the life changing impact they have.

I'm so so happy I contacted Elisa and asked for help for my teenage daughter who was suffering from anxiety, low self-esteem, and compulsive eating behavior. She had 5 sessions and I saw results from the first hypnosis session. She is a lively, cheerful and kind girl again, thanks to Elisa. I can't recommend Elisa's work enough!

It feels like a very safe and nurturing experience

Making a decision to work with Elisa has been transformative in my life. Elisa works in such a way that she carefully and empathetically works with you, to devise the best way to work through and beyond the issues which hold you back. It feels like a very safe and nurturing experience, which also requires commitment and work throughout the process from yourself. It is truly amazing what changes to your mindset can achieve and I would thoroughly recommend working with Elisa.

Unlocking previously untapped Resources

While I have done some traditional therapy before this is the first time I had ever tried coaching. I was not sure what to expect but Elisa guided me through this process in a calm and professional manner. I learned that unlike some other therapies that coaching is a very collaborative process and is not about telling people what do but giving them tools to see the strength and abilities they have but maybe could not see before. Occasionally when an impasse had been reached or it was clear I needed extra help to achieve these goals Elisa used some light hypnotherapy, which always turned out to be helpful. I feel the coaching I have received has markedly improved my life. The coaching has now made me more focused and structured in making progress towards my goals. It has also given me a greater confidence in my own skills and allowed me to see myself in a different way and unlock previously untapped resources. I can’t imagine any of these transformations being possible without the help of Elisa and can’t recommend her coaching skills highly enough!

Finding Clarity , Direction and Focus

I have done 6 coaching sessions with Elisa within roughly 5 months. I did not have any previous experience with life coaching but was in a period where I was trying to figure out my next step in my career, knowing roughly what I wanted but not taking enough initiative due to insecurity and the feeling of not knowing where to start.Elisa was able to ask the right questions, listen well and summarise back what I had said in a way that clarified my thoughts and allowed me to understand my goals or to re-assess my goals when necessary.Throughout the sessions, she was very flexible and adapted her focus and coaching technique to the current situation – whether it was determining or re-assessing my professional goals, jointly coming up with accountable action plans, or sharing and practicing techniques that helped me prepare mentally for a job interview (which was successful).Elisa never told me what to do, the coaching was a partnership whereby Elisa’s coaching skills enabled me to tease out the goals, problems and potential solutions by myself, getting me focused on homing in on what I really wanted to achieve and taking active steps towards it.I am about to start my new job, in the research area I wanted to shift towards, and I am deeply grateful for Elisa’s guidance on the way, which was not only a success but also felt very positive – even if it hadn’t worked out, I would know that I had done the best I could. That is a great feeling, thank you, Elisa.

Transformational Life Coaching

This is the first time I've ever had life coaching and I didn't know what to expect. I was deeply moved by the support and guidance I got from Elisa. She kept a completely professional tone whilst guiding me through difficulties that were preventing me from achieving some crucial life goals. To tackle some of the more difficult issues that were preventing progress she used some gentle hypnosis to clear my mind and create new ways of dealing with things and it worked really well. I have now achieved all the things I wanted to do during that time, and am very relaxed and happy that I have done it all. I never thought that coaching could be so personal and in fact, it has taught me the exact tools that I need to navigate my own growth. I feel like I couldn't have done it without Elisa and that I know a tonne of better ways to tackle life head on now! I could not recommend anything more powerful than Life Coaching with Elisa Di Napoli.
