Hypnotherapy in Central London
Hello, I’m Jess, I provide Hypnotherapy to adults, and children/young people. I practice from comfortable and confidential rooms in both Angel and Victoria. I see clients for a range of issues including anxiety, depression, relationship and intimacy issues, to name a few. I see clients who are experiencing issues with their relationships, as well as people looking to make a career change and are feeling stuck.
I see both adults and children, please note children under 16 may need an adult present in the room.
I am passionate about being a therapist and enjoy meeting a variety of clients with a wide range of issues. I gain great satisfaction from enabling clients to find their solution. My background was in the NHS where I worked for many years in operating theatres, I became increasingly interested in the mind as well as the physical body.
Cognitive hypnotherapy is an effective short term therapy usually lasting between 3-6 sessions, no of sessions and results vary on the individual. Each session lasts one hour and the first session is mostly history taking and we would then make a plan as to where to aim your therapy going forward. The great thing about Cognitive Hypnotherapy is that it’s tailor made to you and the way you ‘do your problem’, so it’s totally adaptable, we go at a pace you are comfortable with. Being in trance is very relaxing and not at all about the therapist having ‘control’ over the client, it’s how we utilise your unconscious mind. Your unconscious does a good job of protecting you from what it perceives to be a threat, but has a habit of holding us back from achieving our full potential. It’s simply a way we can access your dysfunctional thinking and memory around your problem and alter it to a more positive state.
How I can Help
Whether you’re at a crossroads in your career, just out of a break-up or simply feeling a bit stuck, Cognitive Hypnotherapy can help you get your mojo back...I provide a personalised audio recording for you to listen to between sessions to help consolidate the work we have done in session to Help promote transformative and lasting change.

This option can be suitable for those clients that present with a catalogue of issues which they would prefer to work through in a slower fashion.
Call me for a free 15 minute phone consultation, we can discuss what your goals are for therapy and whether we could be right to work together, It is your chance to ask me questions about working together.
I came to Jess when I was at my lowest after trying to conceive for 16 months. I felt there was something deep rooted holding my mind & body back. Through open discussion and trance, Jess guided me through overcoming spiralling anxieties and helped me heal from past experiences.
After 3 sessions with Jess over 4 weeks, I was absolutely overjoyed to find that I had fallen pregnant! Jess's sessions brought me to a new level of calm & relaxation which undoubtedly unlocked something at my core. I hope to continue to see Jess for pre-natal hypnotherapy and support for this next chapter. I just can’t thank her enough for everything she has done for me. BF

When I work
i work some Saturdays additionally to Mondays and Fridays.
I work on Zoom and FaceTime also
I offer online Zoom sessions, i can also do sessions on FaceTime or WhatsApp video call. i send an online therapy guide prior to our session to help you.
The first session is largely history taking, assessment and answering any questions you may have. The second session we begin the work which may include time line regression, rewind or parts work. other disciplines that session may include is Gestalt chair, Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP), Eriksonian theory and Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT). I use whatever seem appropriate to you and your situation.
Trance is simply a relaxed state, you will not do anything you don't want to, you will spend most of a session in and out of trance at different depths and some imagery techniques are simply relaxed with eyes shut.
Many clients begin to notice small changes after the second session, these changes can begin to add up to make big differences in how you live your life for the better. I see most clients for an average of 4 sessions, some return to me some time later for a brain refresh or if there are any life goals they would like help to reach I offer coaching.
All clients receive a personalised audio recording to listen to before sleep, this consolidates the work we do within our sessions.
I also recommend books/podcasts that I may think relevant to your issue. There are occasionally exercises to do at home that provide further insight into your homelife or core values.
'I had a serious case of roadblock when I went to see Jess, I just couldn't get my head in the right place and my confidence demons had really kicked in. The future looked like a scary, blurry mess. Jess calmly walked me through the thoughts in my head and helped me understand that what had been building up over the years didn't need to get in my way anymore. I can't thank her enough for what she has done - I now have the confidence to see what my next 'me' is going to be.' JH 52
‘I came to Jess with my daughter’s anxiety, low mood and stress problem, she couldn’t deal with. I did not have any previous experience with hypnotherapy and did not know which hypnotherapist to go to… I was very fortunate to choose Jess, as from the beginning it was clear she’s a very well qualified professional with a very friendly attitude. I was confident my daughter will receive help she needs. Jess explained us clearly everything about sessions and what to expect. I noticed first results after the second session and I saw an improvement coming with every next one. I have no hesitation in saying that a lot of positive changes I noticed have came as a direct result of the sessions. I can highly recommend Jess to anyone with similar problems.’ AP
