Hypnosis can offer you help with problems that conventional methods cannot by allowing your subconscious mind to reprogram and accept new ways.

​My name is Jacqueline Dower, and I am the clinical hypnotherapist at Uplands Hypnotherapy Clinic, Epsom Downs Surrey. I offer a warm, caring, confidential and supportive environment that recognises that you are unique and that any treatment will be tailored around your needs and preferences. Coaching, support hypnosis and other techniques are used within each session in a comfortable, relaxed atmosphere. Each session is approximately 60-90 minutes except for Stop Smoking Hypnotherapy which is 90-180 minutes. You will be encouraged to relax and start to learn new ways of thinking and behaving. Each hypnosis is recorded when appropriate and sent via email to listen and reinforce all the good change work you had done in the session. I encourage you to listen to these recordings between each appointment. 

Twenty years ago, I turned to hypnotherapy rather than go down the medical route when I felt depressed; I knew there was something out there that I had control over to help me. Don't get me wrong; there is nothing wrong with the medical way; in fact, hypnotherapy can complement modern medicines. However, I wanted the tools to help me take ownership of my problems and use my subconscious mind to reinforce positive ideas, suggestions, and thought patterns.

​The clarity hypnotherapy gave was life-changing for me. It was like someone had cleaned a dirty window; I had focus and direction and felt like the heavy burdens I carried with me were gone. I have never looked back. I was so captured by the independence and confidence hypnosis gave me I trained to become a practitioner. I have continued to train and have added Kinetic Shift Practitioner, OldPain2Go Practitioner, Weight Management Practitioner and Anxiety Attack & Depression Specialist, Therapist. Including Mental Health Awareness Certifications and Health and Nutrition Certifications to my portfolio

Information about health conditions (*)

Hypnotherapy can enhance the well-being of individuals diagnosed with serious medical conditions, but should not take the place of medical treatment and advice. If you have been diagnosed with - or suspect you may have - any of these conditions, please speak to your doctor before starting hypnotherapy.

Additional information

Book your free, confidential telephone consultation. You will be advised how hypnotherapy will help you move forward to a better version of yourself, whether it's anxiety, weight or smoking anything else. 

The first session always includes a comprehensive consultation and hypnotherapy to reinforce changes. Sometimes clients only want talking therapy; we can do that also. I work in a forward-looking way and solution-focused. My treatment sessions are based on the latest developments in neuroscience. They have been proven to work by subtly shifting the way your mind stores information and by breaking established pattern matches so that you can let go of previous behaviours and develop new and preferred ways of doing things.

I don't charge by the hour; my fees are per session, which allows you to relax and not worry about the time you are there and focus on yourself, getting the right help. I value that you want to make positive changes, and these may take a little longer, which is absolutely fine. Uplands Hypnotherapy Clinic specialises in anxiety and stress and can help you transform your life in a few short weeks.

Testimonials from Facebook and Google and Uplands Hypnotherapy Clinic website.

  • Have just completed the weight loss hypnotherapy course and am really pleased with the results so far. Cannot recommend Jacqui highly enough- she has helped me feel so much better about myself. The whole experience was enlightening and uplifting and Jacqui makes you feel so comfortable. If you are considering hypnotherapy for anxiety, phobias or weight loss - Uplands Clinic is the place to go.  Julie O - February 2022
  • Hi, Jacqueline I just wanted to let you know that I passed my driving test yesterday.! I was so much calmer and found Your CD helpful, thank you so much for everything xxx. - Amanda - December 2021
  • Jacqueline is a diamond, I phoned when I was feeling low with no direction in my life and after a month I am feeling confident again with a plan for my future. Jacqueline is very patient, knowledgeable and really easy to talk to. I would highly recommend anyone who is struggling at the moment to give her a call.  Arron - November 2021   
  • I made an appointment after seeing the ad and also seeing some reviews, one was from someone I knew. I've had panic attacks all my life but recently after having covid they had got worse. Driving had become a real challenge and sometimes just going out day to day, especially the school run. I had tried many things but nothing had worked so I thought, I've had enough, give it a go. OMG am I glad I did, it's been life-changing. We focused on anxiety and panic and my driving and after one session I was off to Littlehampton. I had 3 in total and I've hardly felt a flutter. Jacqueline is lovely and makes you feel totally at home. I'm not sure how it works but I feel I have my life back. Thank you, I will be back in May to have a session on my fear of flying. Rebecca M - October 2021
  • Dear Jacqueline, I have today reached my target weight of 9st 12lb. It was 10 years since I was this weight! The last few pounds were a struggle, but as you say failure was not an option. I go north tomorrow to visit my family in Yorkshire, they will be amazed with my new shape and confidence.  All thanks to you! I feel wonderful.

  • I went to see Jac with a view to losing weight in February 2020. I’ve had 4 sessions with her, 3 before lockdown and one recently. I’ve lost two stones, hit my target, built exercise into my daily routine and am now fitter than I’ve ever been. The whole experience has been built on trust and friendship and relaxation. I’ve made several fundamental changes to my lifestyle, helped by lockdown and 7 months in, am working on this being a long term achievable change. Thank you Jac, you’ve been Amazing xxx.

  • I have seen Jacqueline a few times now, and the experience has been fantastic. Working with Jacqueline has been a pleasure, as she discusses everything with you and encourages you so much.

Sue W - October 2020
  • After smoking for over 30 years I decided enough was enough and it was time to stop. I’ve tried various different ways over the years very unsuccessfully so I decided to try hypnotherapy. And after one session with Jacqueline, I have not touched or wanted a cigarette in over two weeks and feel most positive that I won’t for the foreseeable future. If like me you have struggled with a smoking habit please give Jacqueline a call, it’s the best thing you can do for yourself. - Stephen T.J. - Smoking - July 2020
  • Menopausal weight gain ... it's a nightmare !! After trying numerous diets and slimming clubs with little or no effect I came across Upland's Facebook page. With a dash of desperation, I made an appointment to see Jacqui. From the moment we met, I knew she was the right 'fit' for me. Her consulting room is immaculate and so comfortable and during our sessions, her positiveness gave me hope for a new slimline me. Making my first appointment was one of my best decisions ... thank you Jacqui for your advice and support ... you are a star   100% recommended.  Jane B - Weight Management Programme - May 2020
  • Hello Jacqueline I hope you are well and keeping safe. I had some very exciting news this afternoon - I've been offered a place to study dentistry at Leeds University! As you can imagine I am absolutely over the moon and can't quite believe it! Thank you so so much for all your help, couldn't have done it without you xx. Chloe March 2020
  • A very warm welcome by Jackie, the room had a lovely calming feeling, Jackie started by explaining everything to me and how the programme works, she asked me all about my weight loss journey, taking notes and trigger points, I found the hypnosis relaxing and calming and felt very good after my first session, I was given a goody bag of tools to use to help me along, also Jackie sent the recording over to me to listen to, I listened regularly to the recording and felt so motivated, I returned to Jackie two weeks later with a 7lb loss! The programme consists of four sessions over 6wks, my last one last Friday with a 6 wk loss of 1 stone, I am 62 yrs old and over the yrs have found it harder and harder to lose weight so I am over the moon with this, and I’m still loosing and will continue until I get to my target, I feel so motivated! Jackie is on hand to call in-between visits if there’s anything you’re not sure on, I also feel more uplifted in my mood, which is great. I would definitely recommend Uplands Hypnotherapy clinic, give it a try, I’m sure Jackie can help you! Carol R - Weight Management - February 2020

  • Jacqueline has been so great and helpful for me! Yours has helped completely conquer my fear of flying. I was having full-blown panic attacks on planes now I can fly easily. Not only has she helped with fear of flying but she has helped with a very traumatic bereavement that I have been struggling with for over 10 years!

  • I can highly recommend Jacqueline, I was very sceptical when I heard about hypnosis, however, this has defiantly helped me turn things around. Jacqueline is extremely approachable, made me feel completely relaxed about everything. Easy to talk to and very understanding. I can not thank her enough for everything she has given me and supported me through.      Elena C -  July 2018
  • I recently used Uplands Hypnotherapy Clinic to help with weight loss and have obtained amazing results, with the help of Jacqueline Dower I managed to lose a stone and a half in 9 weeks and have continued to lose around 2 pounds a week since Jacqueline is very easy to talk to, I explained truthfully my eating faults and she tailored the programme to suit me, was always very supportive and available to talk to if I had any problems, I would definitely recommend anyone wanting to lose weight and struggling contacts her, it was worth every penny I feel so much better in myself.      Ann A - Weight Loss Programme June 2018
  • Having suffered from varying levels of anxiety for many years, a friend recommended I visit Jacqueline after I got particularly bad recently. After just four sessions, my anxiety levels have reduced significantly and I'm feeling so much better. She was always warm and welcoming and I had no problem opening up to her. It's a very relaxing and positive atmosphere. Jacqueline has also helped me to build my confidence and be more positive. I thoroughly recommend her to anyone wanting help with anxiety. Natalie K - Anxiety  & Confidence May 2018
  • I have bitten my nails for over 20 years since I was a small child. I have tried every stop nail-biting remedy or recommendation available on google, some of them several times, and nothing has been able to stop me from biting my nails. I came to Jacqueline to give hypnotherapy a try and was a little sceptical that it would work, as nothing I had tried before had. I had three sessions of Hypnotherapy with Jacqueline and one month on from the first session I haven’t bitten my nails and am so happy that my nails are finally growing to be long, strong and healthy. Jacqueline is friendly and professional; at every session she made me feel relaxed and comfortable and I left each session feeling positive and ready to beat my habit once and for all. I still think about biting my nails from time to time, but Jacq has provided me with the skills to realise what I am doing and to stop myself from biting them and ruining all my hard work. I would highly recommend Jacqueline to anyone considering hypnotherapy and can’t thank her enough for finally helping me kick my habit! - Jessica H - Nail Biter - February 2018
  • A friendly and warm environment. Jacqui listened to my problems and fully understood my anxiety issues. I was sceptical at first about how effective hypnotherapy would be for me but my anxiety reduced week by week. I would recommend this to anyone suffering from anxiety.                       Emma H - Confidence and anxiety - February 2018
  • I am 60 years old and since childhood, I have always bitten my nails. Following just 2 sessions back in January I no longer have this habit and for the first time in my life, my nails are now a length I am comfortable with. I thoroughly recommend Uplands Hypnotherapy! - Stella M - Nailbiter - February 2018
  • Came to uplands hypnotherapy clinic two weeks ago to quit smoking. I used to smoke at least one pack a day. As I turned up she was extremely welcoming and professional and made me feel comfortable ready to receive the treatment. I have never tried hypnotherapy before but It definitely changed my mindset towards smoking. After having this treatment I have not wanted to touch another cigarette since. Could not be more thankful to Jacqueline and would recommend her to anyone. Keir S - Stop Smoking February 2018
  • I have been going to Hypnotherapy for 2 weeks now for anxiety and confidence. As soon as you walk through the door you feel welcome. Jacque creates a cocoon of relaxation that you can't help but melt into. I was sceptical, to be honest as I'm a bit of a control freak and didn't think I would allow myself to be put under but Jacque has such a soothing reassuring way in which she conducts the sessions that you can physically feel yourself melting into the chair. All the visualisations she gave me within the sessions were as clear as day to me and stay in your head afterwards to remind yourself what you're working for. I always feel like my confidence will be kept with her. You wake feeling revitalised, refreshed and determined. Definitely recommend her.- Amy M - Confidence and anxiety - February 2018
  • I’ve been a nail biter since I was a very young child and with 4 sessions my nails are looking great and I’m no longer a nail biter! Jacquie is professional, calming and personable- highly recommend! - Sara T - January 2018 - Nail Biter

Based at Epsom Downs, Surrey, home base hypnotherapy can make you feel more relaxed than making an appointment in a building based clinic, it has the advantage of comfort and a relaxed atmosphere before you begin.
