I offer a confidential, caring and professional service and enjoy working with my clients to overcome their concerns by giving them the inner resources they need to enable positive change.
I am fully qualified, registered and insured. I am a Clinical and Advanced hypnotherapist.
Book for a free consultation. I can help you with anxiety, confidence issues, depression, weight management, sleep issues and so many other areas.
I can help you to look and feel into future options to make decisions which enable those changes that may have been causing you to feel stuck.
Hypnotherapy can enhance skills and creativity and improve your performance.
I worked in Special Education for several years, with pupils with autism and high anxiety. Helping these young people to be calm and relaxed had a profound effect on them. I now translate these insights into my work with people who have anxiety and stress related problems.
I believe that everyone is different and each person requires a unique approach rather than 'one size fits all'. I will tailor my approach to suit your specific needs and personality.
I have CPCAB vocationally related certificate in counselling skills and am therefore able to enhance your hypnotherapy sessions with talk therapy when needed.
I am a Smoking Cessation Specialist registered with the CRRST

" Going to Jo was one of the best decisions I've made and I urge anyone who is struggling to have a chat with her to see how she can help. Before I went for hypnotherapy with Jo, I was at a complete loss with how to deal with my anxiety. Jo made me feel incredibly at ease and explained what could and would happen. After the session, I woke up and realised that I felt totally calm, for the first time in months. It was like something had been switched off in my brain and the anxiety was gone!"
"I went to see Jo to get help to stop smoking, I’m ashamed to admit that I did smoke quite heavily, but now after working with Jo I’m pleased to say that “I am now a non-smoker and I will be a non-smoker for the rest of my life”.
Jo was very understanding, we spent a long time chatting, she was non judgmental and listened to my particular circumstances, which she then tailor-made to my sessions. Since I’ve stopped smoking Jo has continued to be supportive and I can’t thank her enough".
"The recording I received from Jo certainly has exceeded my expectations. I mostly listen to it just before falling asleep at night. Firstly, I find her voice magically calming. Secondly, it triggers high levels of peace and joy in me, which relax me within the first thirty seconds of the recording. I usually go straight away into a deep trance, where my body falls asleep yet I am consciously aware of listening to the words in a deeply relaxed manner without really focusing on the words themselves. It feels like taking a power nap, where everything that matters happens in me with no conscious effort at all... As a psychotherapist and an experienced trance-meditation practitioner I can highly recommend these recordings. Whether one looks for something to be for just a physical and mental relaxation or a specifically chosen area of improvement Jo has one of those magic voices that can easily guide the usually busy physical mind to a place of magic, where the process of thinking is suspended and one feels complete and content in the moment as it is".
