Jayne Cowan ~ MNCH (Reg)
Hi, I'm Jayne, I support clients through cognitive hypnotherapy, personal coaching and bereavement support from my base in Berkhamsted. I offer face to face and online sessions, so geography needn’t be a factor if I'm the right therapist for you!
I have been a volunteer in the Bereavement Support team at the Hospice of St Francis for over 7 years, providing one-to-one support to people going through very difficult times. I also work on the Bereavement Support Helpline, contacting people by telephone to see how they are, giving them space to talk if they so wish.
This experience gave me the ambition to support people through other challenges they were facing in their lives. By seeing the dramatic, beneficial benefits of cognitive hypnotherapy and given the different approach of focusing on treating the person as an individual rather than concentrating on the ‘problem’ motivated me to discover more about this approach.
I combine my training and experience with a calm, friendly approach, and a particular strength in active listening; all of which, I believe, are essential qualities in a therapist. If you would like to talk to me about working together, please do get in touch, I look forward to hearing from you.

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.
