About me

Jayne is a professional hypnotherapist with the unique ability to engage your subconscious in a conversation that is powerfully healing. She does not use other people's scripts and she tailor-makes each of her sessions to individual needs. Her sessions are truly incredible. I have never experienced hypnosis like this before, so personal, caring and compassionate as well as creative. I would recommend Jayne to anyone who has some deep rooted issues that they wish to heal, such as traumas and addictions or lighter issues such as smoking or weight loss.

We can get locked into unhelpful behaviour patterns sometimes. The key often lies simply in retraining the unconscious mind. For many years hypnotherapy has been esteemed as a valuable tool for healing and growth. It works well alongside other therapies and its versatility means that it can be adapted to help almost any problem.

Your first step towards change is simply to get in touch for a very friendly, down-to-earth chat when I'll be happy to explain how hypnosis works and how it can help you. We can meet up for a free 20-minute consultation or just talk on the phone. After you've identified what you want to achieve, I can assess how to help you do it. A first session will last between 60 and 90 minutes. Your hypnotic trance induction will be recorded and then sent to you as an MP3 audio file or a CD so that you can use it again and again to maximise the benefits of your session.

People often ask, 'What does it feel like to go into a trance? And how will I know that I'm doing it right?' I am happy to reassure you that hypnotic trance is very easy to achieve. You know it well because it happens to you every day. What your mind imagines, your body responds to; and hypnosis uses this connection. We have a natural ability to learn deeply, imagine richly and adjust emotions whilst relaxing and focusing. It's precisely because hypnosis is a natural learning state that it is such a powerful agent for change.

Children respond well to 'let's pretend'. They are expert at imagining alternative realities and often make naturally great hypnotic subjects. Parents are involved in the therapy too, present in the room and able to encourage beneficial changes in daily life. Hypnosis has a proven track record of helping children from the age of about 5 upwards to deal with issues such as anxiety, psychosomatic symptoms, phobias and performance nerves.

Older young people, 12-18, often struggle with issues related to excessive reliance on social media ('Social Comparison Disorder', 'Obsessive Comparison Disorder' or cyber-bullying) which cause great distress. These are relatively new areas of practice, but hypnotherapy is proving truly helpful in putting things in perspective, building confidence and adapting coping skills. Sessions for children last normally up to 55 minutes and include a recording of the hypnosis.

Of course, therapy requires commitment from you - after all, the change happens inside you and you have to want that change to happen. And since all hypnosis is self-hypnosis, it can never rob you of your free will. I cannot 'make' you change - you'll bring your wholehearted co-operation to the process. You may get 'homework' in the form of tasks designed to reinforce the changes you've begun to explore in trance.

Areas of hypnotherapy I deal with

* If you have been diagnosed or suspect you may have one of the medical conditions starred above, you should consult your GP for advice, diagnosis and treatment and always inform your health professional before starting any alternative or additional therapies or treatments.

Other areas of hypnotherapy I deal with

Social media issues may not come under particular medical labels, but an increasing number of young people are caught up in 'social comparison disorder' or 'obsessive comparison disorder' - an addictive use of YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat etc leading to diminished self-esteem, copycat behaviours and even depression. Hypnotherapy can help a young person step back, get a bigger picture, understand the mechanics of 'comparanoia' and how to disarm it - whilst taking back control of their own use of social media.

Menopause can be a fraught time and we can find ourselves dealing with a loss of confidence and even a loss of identity. Many women have benefited from hypnotherapy in dealing not only with the physical effects of menopause, such as hot flushes, but also the emotional and psychological fall-out from the 'Change'.

Further information


Hypnotherapy takes place in comfortable consulting rooms at the peaceful Wilbury Clinic, Hove. www.thewilburyclinic.co.uk


We aim to set clear goals for each session and to monitor progress in the following weeks via telephone, email or further sessions. Although solution-focused hypnotherapy does not place an emphasis on delving extensively into the past, it is particularly effective at deconditioning trauma memories and learning calming and coping techniques to deal with high-stress lives. Impossible as it is to predict how many sessions an individual requires, a general change will often be noticed after one session. We can meet for a maximum of ten sessions, within a clear, solution-focused treatment plan.


It's quite normal for people to find it hard to remember details of their session or be surprised at how time has flown by. This simply shows that you have been in a deep, healing trance. The effects of hypnosis are 'unconscious' and designedly so. It becomes easier to reach a deep, productive trance state with each session.
