Jayne Sarah Cockerill BA(hons) HPD DSFH *Online and Face to Face Hypnotherapy*
I help people who feel overwhelmed and stressed to find a sense of personal control and calm. I have experience helping adults and children to manage stress, anxiety, low-mood, suicidal thoughts, workplace stress, OCD, agoraphobia, fear of the dentist, swimming, spiders, addictions, reducing alcohol consumption and many more issues. Hypnotherapy is a wonderful tool. I'm a Clinical Solution Focused Hypnotherapist, working towards my AHD and registered with NCH, CNHC and AfSFH. I'd love to help you.
To book an appointment:
Simply visit my website: jaynesarah.co.uk/hypnotherapy and select a time that suits you from my availability. Complete the booking form or text me on 07988 863914 and I'll confirm your appointment. All sessions can be either face to face in my therapy room in Westbury-on-Trym, or online via Zoom, Whatsapp or Skype.
What happens in the first Session?
Your first appointment will be an Initial Consultation, which will last approximately one hour. During this session you will explain what you'd like to have help with and what you'd like to achieve and then I'll explain how the brain works and consequently how hypnotherapy will help you. If you'd like to book further suggestions, we will select some suitable times from our diaries and I will ordinarily see you again on a weekly basis.
How many sessions will you need?
This is a brief therapy. We won't be exploring negative incidences from your past. Our priority lies with establishing what you want to do next and what small steps we are going to take to help you to achieve your goals. Therefore, we only usually see each other for 6, 8 or 12 sessions, sometimes more if you have several things on your wish-list.
I look forward to hearing from you :)
"Before I met Jayne I was struggling with self harm, anxiety and depression. Now after being with Jayne for 8 sessions I feel confident and able to tackle life head on. Listening to her track at night always put me in a relaxed mood, the sessions were focused on positive things which helped me to divert my attention and appreciate the good things no matter how small or big. The things that troubled me have become less and less troubling in just 2 months! I feel better within myself, I have seen positive changes in myself, I feel good about myself, my self belief and self worth have increased, I feel calmer, happier and I'm loving myself more deeply. I can't thank Jayne enough for all that she has done for me and mostly for helping me realise that my thoughts are up to me to change and I can control them in order to live a better life! If I could I would give her a big hug but because of the pandemic I can't.
Thank you again Jayne I am so grateful for you and all that you have done for me." Sep 2020

"I had Solution Focused Hypnotherapy for anxiety, panic attacks, depression, confidence issues and insomnia. It was amazing and really helped me. I have become a better person. Jayne is an amazing person who really helped me through a very tough time in my life. If it wasn’t for Jayne I might not be here now - so a very big thank you."
"Hypnotherapy was different to what I expected. More talking & coaching than simply "being hypnotised", but it was all well explained throughout and my initial natural scepticism was quickly left behind. Jayne helped me address some confidence/anxiety issues, and helped me prepare for a job promotion interview. I listen to the relaxation track provided by Jayne most nights. It really helps me (and my wife) get into a deep sleep really quickly, and we both feel much more positive and rejuvenated in the days after we've had the track on. It really is noticeable. We're just more energetic, productive and positive. Had a couple of 'eureka' moments during my time with Jayne about my internal thought processes and how I could easily make myself happier in all aspects of life."
"Jayne worked with me on my irrational fear of going underwater. I had been absolutely petrified of this since a child and had not been underwater for over 34 years- but after 6 sessions of hypnotherapy with Jayne, I managed to do it (and didn’t think I ever would). I can honestly say that Jayne has changed my life, not only with the phobia but also with how I now deal with everyday stresses and anxiety too. Would highly recommend!"
"Solution Focused Hypnotherapy was a really positive experience, and I began feeling better very quickly after I began the sessions. I found them very relaxing and enjoyable! After 8 sessions I’ve stopped having anxiety/panic attacks and have learnt how to control and reduce anxiety."
"Jayne provides a great service. She worked with my 10 year old daughter and helped make marked improvements in anxiety and sleep issues. A great, welcoming, child friendly experience. Thoroughly recommend."
"I have gone from being downtrodden, over anxious, eager to please and exhausted ....... to having a sense of well-being brought about by a new feeling of being in control of my life. This has been given back to me using a gentle system of talking and hypnosis. Because of the methods used I feel that I'm the master of my own destiny and I can say that I feel confident and empowered for the first time in years. It has enhanced my life and of those close to me. They like the new happy and fulfilled person that I've become. When I need to, I use the techniques Jayne showed me and it helps me to get back on track and to put life back into perspective."
"Solution Focused Hypnotherapy has been a successful, positive and thought provoking experience. My whole outlook on life has changed. I went to the sessions to help control an addiction and ended up with a new zest for life. I am so glad that I plucked up courage to make that first contact to ask for help."
"Hypnotherapy with Jayne for Anxiety, Panic Attacks, Confidence Issues and Weight Loss surpassed my expectations. I cannot recommend it enough. It has changed my life so much and it’s amazing to live in such a positive place now. Motivation and Positivity just flooded through me after each session and made feel like I could achieve anything I put my mind to. Hypno with Jayne is the best thing I’ve done in years. It’s changed my life so much and I cannot thank her enough."
"I wanted to try to get myself out of the habit of drinking alcohol every evening, to go back to just drinking as an occasional treat at weekends. I wasn't drinking an awful lot, but I was finding it a challenge to halt the regularity. I wanted to 'take back control' and not have it as my master. Before I had treatment with Jayne, being negative or ignoring my achievements was my default setting. Not any more. Jayne has a wonderful quality of calm positivity that immediately puts you at your ease... she is completely non judgemental and very skilled at finding ways to unpick what you are telling her and reframe your reflections in positive and encouraging ways. She is quietly determined to help her clients achieve their goals, and I felt a strong sense of confidence in her abilities and knowledge which is extensive, rooted in proven scientific and physiological expertise. As a practitioner she is as skilled at hypnotherapy as she is at massage. I felt a powerful sense of trust and empathy flow between us and I am certain that Jayne demonstrates this same rapport with all her clients. Jayne is especially skilled at the trance element of the sessions – there is not a scrap of artifice or superficiality, she demonstrates absolute integrity which allowed me to easily fall into a state of deep relaxation, something I have never experienced before. Her words are spoken with a soothing delivery, and during the trance I gained a strong sense of confidence – a therapist who is completely in control but governed by absolute respect, trust and professional competence. Working with Jayne exceeded all my expectations, and the sessions were an absolute joy – even when I cried! To my delight I have found myself able to put myself into deep relaxation using Jayne's wonderful relaxation track while employing the techniques learned during my sessions. It has helped me control my addictive behaviour and given me skills to help me think positively and steer away from my tendency towards negative forecasting – helping me unearth a positivity that has benefited all aspects of my life, not just my addictive behaviour."
"Initially I was skeptical as I didn't really know if hypnotherapy would be able to help with my issues as it wasn't a phobia or fear that I had always previously thought hypnotherapy was used for. I was seeking help with Anxiety and Confidence Issues. I went for my initial consultation and from that first meeting Jayne made me feel at ease and that she understood what I was going through. She also said those magic words, 'I can help you with this'! Instantly this helped me to feel that I wasn't going mad. The science and explanation behind it all made sense to me and I felt able to engage with it. Through the sessions I grew in confidence and it gave me strategies of how I could avoid feeling anxious about irrational things. Listening to the recording as I fell asleep was also a great help to me and gave me some relaxation time. Jayne was great and made me feel comfortable throughout and I'm very thankful to her. After the sessions I felt relaxed and overall I feel more confident in recognising what is and isn't rational anxiety. I am also more able to control my irrational feelings and feel more able to assert myself when necessary rather than always taking on responsibility just to make everything alright! I'm also feeling happier and calmer in myself. Both venues that I attended were well thought out and comfortable and had everything that was needed. I want to say a massive thank you to Jayne for reaching out to her existing massage clients as without that, I wouldn't be feeling as good as I do today. The hypnotherapy sessions have helped me a lot and I will continue to use the strategies I have learnt."
"The hypnotherapy sessions were interesting, enjoyable and relaxing. I always looked forward to them. Undergoing solution focused hypnotherapy is one of the best things I have done for myself. It has been such a positive and useful experience with a lasting impact. I learnt a lot about how my brain works and why I get anxious and stressed and how I can help myself. After each session I felt very happy, calm and confident. Now for the first time in a long time I can be myself. I am much better at coping with the demands of life and my work performance has gone through the roof! I would highly recommend Jayne as a Hypnotherapy practitioner."
"Jayne is friendly, understanding and very professional, and I felt very much at ease in her comfortable consulting rooms. I attended with a problem of poor sleeping, going to bed tired and not sleeping, or waking up for no apparent reason in the middle of the night. She explained to me how the brain processes requests for sleep, and how to encourage the right type of sleep, and this adjusted my sleep patterns to allow me good nights rest for the first time in many months. I have had several hypnotherapy sessions with Jayne, a relaxing hour, where I can drift into a peaceful trance, where my brain can process problems and to seek out the positive solutions."
"As it was difficult for me to have sessions with Jayne in person, I had the majority of my sessions through video chat. Through video chat I still felt that Jayne was in the room with me, which was comforting. Also I found it was nice to be in my own comfortable space when we got to the trance part at the end of our sessions. I have enjoyed every session with Jayne, after each one feeling positive about making achievable changes. I truly believe Jayne has changed my life; I continue to improve after our sessions with the tools she has given me, feeling happier everyday."
