About me

Hi my name is Jo, a fully trained Hypnotherapist using integrated NLP, psychotherapy, counselling skills and hypnotherapy to address health and wellbeing issues. I trained with the well regarded Contemporary College of Therapeutic Studies in London in this integrated approach.

Wanting to change a habit, your thoughts about something, or generally feel more positive and skilled in a certain situation? I look forward to you contacting me so we can discuss what you wish to work on and look at the options available. This conversation is partly about assessing whether I am the right person for you and you can learn what I can offer you. We can discuss by phone or email, any queries you may have and whether the timing is right for you.

As a Health visitor, midwife and nurse I have over 25 years experience working with individuals and their families, mainly in the community environment. I have helped people face challenges both physically, psychologically and emotionally in a supportive relationship. Being a facilitator and educator of staff and clients I am experienced at establishing relationships, building rapport and supporting people.

At our first meeting we will explore the issue or concern in a safe and calm environment and introduce you to hypnotherapy at a pace that suits you. Having time and space to be listened to so you can become the best you you wish to become.

Hypnotherapy when used together with therapeutic skills can be a powerful tool. I am a practitioner who has for many years been assisting people to make changes in their thoughts and feelings. Exploring these feelings and aiding understanding with a variety of techniques, enables change to occur. Clients often know what to do, but need help to access their resources to make these changes effective. One of the many benefits of hypnotherapy includes experiencing a relaxed state which promotes a sense of wellbeing. This makes hypnotherapy enjoyable as well as productive.

Areas of expertise include weight loss, stop smoking, anxiety, confidence, phobias and pain management.

I can work with adults, children and teenagers.

I look forward to meeting you.
