Hello, I'm Jackie – a fully qualified Advanced Clinical Hypnotherapist and Integrative Psychotherapist, counsellor and NLP Practioner. (Neuro-Linquistist Programming). I have over 20+ years experience working with individuals, couples, groups, families, adolescents and children. Consequently you can be confident that you will be working with a highly experienced professional therapist.
Based in Harold Wood as a local therapist I cover SE Essex area, including, Romford, Dagenham, Brentwood and surrounding area. I offer face-to-face appointments and on-line therapy via Skype.
I am passionate about helping people overcome emotional issues and behavioural problems. I also enjoy coaching people to realise their dream. Throughout my life I have experienced many challenges, both personal and professional. So I can empathise and understand where you are at, and I promise you – things can get better!
I have always worked in the caring professions, previously in social services and the private voluntary sector. Therefore I have experience of working with a diversity of people from all backgrounds, cultures, ages and abilities.
The move for me to be more involved in therapeutic work felt a natural step to take. In 2002 I set up private practice as a counsellor, psychotherapist and hypnotherapist. My clients were referred from Social Services and the general public.
In 2006 I moved to France and opened a retreat. There I run self-growth workshops, couples relationship workshop weekends, and a 7 day stop smoking residential programme called Smoking BreakAway. When not working with clients staying on a residential basis or seeing day clients (mainly ex-pats) I spent time writing and creating hypnosis audio’s recordings.
I am the author of 4 books: ’97 Mistakes People Unwittingly Make When Trying to Stop Smoking’, ‘Kick Smoking Out of Your Life in 10 Easy Steps’, The Power of Love: 21 Winning Ways to Attract Your Ideal Partner’ and ‘107 Things You Can Do to Stop Smoking’. I have written numerous self-help eBooks and produced a number of hypnosis CD’s and audio downloads in various subjects. I am also the creator of the ‘I-QUIT Smoking Programme which consists of a Guidebook, Workbook and 9 CDs.
Finally, I offer to work with clients with a wide range of issues, including behaviour modification, anxiety, stress, depression, trauma, abuse, substance misuse, addictions, abuse, insomnia, panic attacks, fears and phobias. I also has experience of working with children and young people who were victims of abuse.

You may be wondering why I do not publish testimonials. This is because; Testimonials are considered unethical by many therapy related bodies particularly the UK Council for Psychotherapy.
There is a possibility of fabrication.
The Advertising Standards Authority require any testimonial to be verifiable which conflicts with the confidentiality I offer my clients.
As a society we are getting used to sites such as Tripadvisor. However, the difference is that those reviews are independent and written by the customer direct. On a therapist's site, the practitioner is responsible for the content and would naturally only put up good reviews.
As a experienced qualified therapist I have a wide range of techniques that I use to match each client’s needs. Therapy is not like buying a kettle. One person’s experience is unlikely to match your own. Consequently, reading other peoples’ experiences may be misleading rather than helpful to you.
Working hours are from 09.00 - 20.00 Monday to Friday 09.00 - 13.00 Saturdays.
