Jennie Williams DHP Acc.Hyp BEd Dip.CBEd
A qualified hypnotherapist and teacher, I live in Crewkerne, South Somerset with my husband and 10 year old son. My passion for healing began when I suffered with Chronic Fatigue. This was when I became fascinated by symptoms in the body and their emotional/psychological connections. Now fully recovered my passion is to help others learn healing/wellbeing as a craft, as they would a sport or musical instrument. It is not just about letting go of issues . . . it is so much more!
I work with both adults and children, specialising in working with Highly Sensitive People.
Do you feel that you / your child has special qualities and gifts, but that with the best intentions in the world you just don’t know the best way forward? I help Highly Sensitive People reach their potential, be their authentic selves and find their place in the world.
Examples of Changes You Can Expect:
Improvement in Your Self-Esteem
Feeling Your Feelings More
Finding Your Voice
Connecting more with Your Passion
Feeling Able to Relax and Let Go
Feeling More Secure
Connecting with Your Creativity
Enjoying Being Yourself
About My Approach
~ Patterns in My Body
I help you / your child to find where in your body you may hold anxiety, negative feelings or trauma. By helping you work intuitively through visualisation I then help you to acknowledge what your feelings are about and to let go of them. Feeling your feelings and being heard are the most important part of this process. As a result you / your child will feel patterns change in your body (eg you will notice feeling less tight in your chest or that you can breathe or digest more easily.) This will have a positive knock-on affect on your general sense of wellbeing, happiness and self esteem.
What will I / my child need to do?
I will ask you / your child to sit in a comfortable chair where you will be well supported but you will not be lying down. I will talk briefly about how we can trust our intuition and then have a simple dialogue with you (working as I described above.) I don’t use any hypnotherapy tricks or music. Our answers to healing are just below the surface of our conscious mind. We don’t need to go ‘deep’ or, as some people say ‘under’ to find them.
~ Feeling My Feelings and Finding My Voice
I help people to express their true selves. This is not a music, movement or play session. I help you / your child to find your voice – what you want to say at that exact moment. I use recorded music, backing tracks and musical instruments but these are simply ways of supporting you on your journey of exploration. The inspiration will come from inside of you and be your own story.
When we find our voice to speak out who we are, we feel better about ourselves and our lives. We find it easier to give ourselves what we need, to self regulate and to embrace all that is good around us.
For Very Sensitive Adults and Children
For very sensitive people I use a more gentle approach. I keep talking and instruction to a minimum. I understand that sound, movement and music can feel overpowering to the very sensitive. If we don’t feel like moving, we might like making shapes. If we don’t feel like music we might like to listen to a rhythm or a pigeon cooing or a sound we make with our body. We work with our own story and our own energy. We learn how to embrace ourselves and the world in our special unique way.
Who Can I Help?
My approach would particularly suit you if 1) You are an intuitive person 2) You feel you have a lot inside to express 3) You feel stuck in your healing journey/therapy.
Just one out of these 3 will be enough!
How many sessions will I / my child need?
I am flexible in my approach when it comes to number and frequency of sessions but will be happy to suggest how many sessions you might need and we can discuss the frequency that would work best for you.
