Hi, I'm Jan, a qualified Hypnotherapist and Counsellor practicing in Rossendale, Bury and Manchester. I am passionate in improving the quality of people’s lives on a personal and professional front. My aim is to support and enable you to achieve your goals and aspirations and move forward positively in your life.
What you can expect from me:
I provide a unique, tailor made service, and I'm a firm believer that one size does not fit all. I am able to instill confidence, build rapport, and provide understanding which allows you to relax and explore your feelings, thoughts and aspirations - therefore feeling empowered and lighter after your sessions. I work with teens, adults and older people, and understand that everyone works differently, allowing you to take control over the aspect of your life which is causing concern.
I use an eclectic, varied approach of hypnotherapy, NLP, CBT, counselling, person-centred counselling, psychodynamic, gestalt, transactional analysis, psychotherapy, mediation and life coaching techniques which have proved to support both individuals and couples. I analyse and explore their feelings and emotions, and with support take control, be empowered and work through solutions dealing with their issues and concerns. I also incorporate a variety of psychotherapy techniques which include CBT and NLP within Hypnotherapy.
Getting started with your first session:
Your first session is an introductory meeting enabling you to see if you feel comfortable working with me, and you have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have and we will discuss what has brought you to hypnotherapy. This is needed for us to assess your needs and allow us to tailor make your first hypnotherapy session, highlighting your specific goals and needs.
All in all, this will heighten a more effective outcome for you to enable you to achieve your goals and aspirations and lead a more improved and enhanced quality of life. If you would like further information on the services I provide, please contact me directly by telephone or by emailing me.
I look forward to hearing from you!

"Following a traumatic life threatening serious road traffic accident I was referred by a Medico Legal Company to see Jan and through the counselling and hypnosis I have access to a ‘bag of tools’ that I can use to deal with anger, frustration, mood swings, depression, nervousness, confidence, nightmares, flashbacks, suicidal thoughts, pain management, anxiety and Insomnia. I am a stronger and more in control person than I was before the accident – Many Thanks Jan!"
"I found it difficult to relax and suffered from stress, anxiety and panic attacks. With counselling and hypnosis I can relax, recharge my batteries, concentrate and focus rather than being overwhelmed with everything."
"I have had weight loss hypnosis and have lost 19 lbs and look, feel amazing and have regained my confidence in myself at work and socially. Thank you Jan for all your support, the therapy worked!"
"I have not slept for more than 3 hours each night for over 20 years and through having a few sessions with Jan something must have clicked and now I sleep on average for 7 ½ hours and no longer toss and turn with lack of sleep! I can now focus, concentrate and lead a health productive life. Thanks pal!"
