As an experienced professional clinical hypnotherapist, also trained in CBT, I'd love to work with you to help you take control of your life - to remove obstacles, dissolve fears and negative thinking patterns and bring about positive and lasting change.
Combining clinical hypnotherapy with CBT techniques is a highly effective approach. In fact I use techniques and concepts from NLP, transactional analysis and other models, where I feel they will be helpful. It's a collaborative process, and because everyone is different we'll work with what's best for you.
I have a personal background in the corporate sector (until 2002) and have specialist knowledge of workplace stress. I still offer consultancy and training in that area (Member International Stress Management Association)
For the last year I have been resident therapist and feature writer for Top Sante magazine. I'm a trainer for Relate and author of "Overcoming Perfectionism", published by Bookboon.com.
But what is Hypnosis?
It's actually a naturally occurring state. Have you ever been absorbed in a book and simply unaware of what's going on around you? That's a very similar psychological state – one of deep absorption and focussed attention. Hypnosis is not 'mind control' – you are always in control. And it is not like being asleep - although you will probably feel extremely relaxed. Many say is feels more like a pleasant day dream. This calm, easy state allows your 'unconscious' mind to accept positive suggestions and imagine creative solutions.
What happens in the session?
We'll examine the sources of your problem along with the emotional issues - although we don't get bogged down in the past because this is about finding creative solutions to bring about the change youwantfor the future. We work on developing effective strategies and creating positive suggestions that will help you get to your goal, and we then use hypnosis to embed these deeply into your ‘unconscious’ mind.
My style is solution-focussed, warm and positive. I've helped clients with a wide variety of issues, particularly with anxiety, fears and phobias, PTSD, depression, relationship and emotional issues
Who do I Help?
I enjoy working with a wide variety of people, right across the board. I suppose my passion is helping people increase their self-belief and confidence, and I especially love working with teenagers who are experiencing stress relating to their studies or their relationships.
What people have said about me
I have found our sessions invaluable both as support through a challenging period this summer and to bring to the forefront some very unhelpful and outdated thought patterns, habits and behaviours, which now identified are increasingly becoming obsolete and creating the space for new ways of thinking and being. (Tim C)
Just to let you know that I graduated from my course yesterday with a first class degree. Thank you so much for all your support. Your methods to help me to rethink my perfectionist thoughts and tendencies were instrumental in remaining calm and focused enough to achieve my dream result (Sophie S).
"Hi Jenny, I'm writing to you from the other side of the Atlantic. I'm Brazilian and just read your book on perfectionism - and cried almost all the way through it and finally realized, after 15 years of professional life, that in fact I do have a problem that I need to work on. It was such a good reading and it made me realize that, at least, I'm not alone" (Roberta)
