We all face times in our lives when we may feel depressed, anxious, overwhelmed, doubt ourselves or are dealing with past issues. The therapy I offer provides you with a safe space to explore your concerns, discover and understand the reasons behind them and choose a path to move forward. You are the expert on your own life and I am here to guide and support you on your path to the change you truly desire.
Hypnotherapy adopts the power of positive suggestions and directs them to your subconscious mind, which is the source of your core beliefs and thoughts that affect your everyday life. This form of therapy has been proven to be effective for a wide range of problems.
Just Imagine Therapy hypnotherapy counselling with an experienced and accredited hypnotherapist and psychologist Anna Yardley, offers a free initial consultation over the phone to assess your issue and make sure you can benefit from this form of therapy.
Hypnotherapy counselling sessions take place in private, safe and confidential settings in Chelmsford and Blackmore (Essex) or online via Skype.

Evening and weekend appointments available.
I am psychologist and hypnotherapist with a background in bereavement, disabilities and chronic illnesses. I am able to help with the limiting beliefs that are holding you back from fulfilling your potential. I believe in the power of our imagination, where we dream and make plans which are the seeds to their realisation. In our imagination we create every element of our day and convert it to reality. In our imagination we can find our inner firewood, and we can warm our hearts and give love to this hurt and maybe neglected part of us. In our imagination we can aid the recovery process of our body as well as our emotions.
"Being able to address the issue of swallowing tablets and understand that it is not just an issue that was personal to me, gave me great confidence in the hypnotherapy process. Being able to link progression with overcoming my fear to each session was excellent, a complete sense of working to breakdown the issue and continually reflecting on positive progression between sessions has allowed me to successfully overcome a lifelong barrier." Aaron
"I've found hypnotherapy an interesting and helpful experience. It has helped me to see things differently, through a deeper understanding of my feelings and a more positive mindset. I've also learnt some great relaxation techniques that have made a real difference to my life. Anna took time to understand my condition and tailored our sessions accordingly. She is caring and professional and I would recommend her as an excellent therapist." Ben
"Anna has a caring and understanding personality and I felt relaxed and understood in her company. Through meditation & visualisation I was able to relax more deeply than I thought I could. Then we did parts therapy and some inner child work, which enabled me to heal some deep wounds and reverse the negativity I was feeling about a particular situation, and life itself. My initial uncertainty about hypnosis and regression was quickly overcome as I felt totally safe and in control at all times. I would thoroughly recommend Anna’s counselling service." Louise
"I had several hypnotherapy sessions with Anna. I felt cared for and safe every time. Ania was leading our meeting with great awareness and calmness. We were working on my blockade in speaking a foreign language. Thanks to Anna I discovered the possibilities of my subconscious and worked out my fear of speaking in English. Anna’s care, her smile and spirit make sessions enjoyable and relaxing :) I recommend it to anyone who wants to get to know themselves, find answers to various questions and discover what power lies in the visualisation and strength of our mind." Anna
"I had never done hypnotherapy before but was eager and intrigued to try it. I had 4 sessions of Hypno Gastric Band hypnotherapy with Anna. She made me feel so calm and comfortable every session. The treatment really allowed me to be so much more aware of where I was going wrong and where my issues had stemmed from. I’d definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to be more conscious and in control of their dietary habits." Laura
"It's a pretty standard joke that in times of crisis we reach for chocolate, there is a whole industry of greeting cards, fridge magnets and advertising material based on our addiction to it. However it isn't so funny when the pounds are going on and you cannot resist the urge to have just one more piece. Hypnotherapy with Anna has helped me to modify my appetite for chocolate, so that now while I still eat it occasionally I no longer crave it. I found the whole experience very relaxing and empowering. I am happy to recommend it to anyone trying to gain control of their eating habits." Sarah
"Anna from the beginning of the sessions has, I feel, put 100% into helping me through a difficult time by suggesting things beyond therapy to help (self-help books, tools to use at home). I found Anna flexible, supportive and patient. I felt safe with Anna to share feelings and thoughts that I had not shared with others. Anna has helped me to rebuild my confidence and self believe and given me the skills and strength to cope with set backs. Thank you." Catherine
"Anna was very kind, caring and understanding. She put me at ease straight away. I felt very comfortable and confident in sharing my phobia with her. She was easy to talk to and non-judgemental. She helped me overcome my phobia and anxiety as well as helped me to achieve a better mental state and a happier everyday life. She gave me the tools I needed to help fight it in everyday life as well as overcoming old demons." Liana
"I contacted Anna at a time when I was suffering from anxiety which was causing me to suffer from confidence issues and low self-esteem. This was mostly linked to an incident which I had been traumatised by. Anna treated me for PTSD and after some sessions, I was able to dismiss the event as experience and focus on building myself back up. Sessions were relaxed and adapted to my needs, ensuring that I was given resources which I could use at home. I feel much more confident and would not hesitate in contacting Anna in the future for support when required." Stephanie
