It is my personal belief, that everyone SHOULD have the best life possible and that we CAN all have a more positive experience of life.
Typically though, with all the pressures and demands of everyday life we get can get caught in a negative cycle and loose sight of reality… managing and coping with everyday stress can sometimes get too much.
Experiences we have throughout our lives determine how we perceive the world and our place within it. It also determines how we react and respond to our environment and what is happening around us.
Negative experiences impact our behaviour, and the way we feel about ourselves, and can have devastating effects on our lives; leaving us feeling worthless, useless and unlovable.
Recognising there is an issue is the first big step, knowing there is support and asking for help is the next.
It is through the use of hypnotherapy that I was able to create a better, more enjoyable and meaningful experience of life for myself. So much so, that I wanted to become a hypnotherapist so I could share it with anyone who would like to create a better life too.
Regardless of what may have happened to us in the past, our future need not be dictated or defined by these experiences. You may not even be aware of the reasons you feel the way you do. Regardless, as difficult as it may seem, it is absolutely possible, with the right support, to make peace with the past and move forwards in a more positive and enjoyable way.
These experiences may range from something obvious and serious to something so irrelevant that you don’t even realise the impact it is having. If you are struggling with life but are unsure why or find yourself reacting to things in a way that is not helpful to you, it may be that there is an underlying subconscious reason; one that you are consciously unaware of.
Through hypnotherapy it is possible to make sense of who we are and why we are the way we are, which in turn enables us to connect with ourselves and start to create the life we always wanted but never knew how to get or felt we deserved.
My mission is to encourage, inspire and motivate my clients to take back their power and have more control over their lives, enabling them to experience life in the way it was intended. Life is supposed to be meaningful, enjoyable and above all else fun. To some this may seem too much to ask but with time, patience and the right support we can all experience life in the way it was intended – it really is possible and it is my pleasure to be part of that journey.

"I had my first hypnotherapy session with Jessica today. A tranquil setting aided a very relaxed session. I felt wonderful afterwards. Jessica is very easy to talk to & seems to hone in on what's important. Jessica genuinely seems to care & that comes through in the session, she's like an expert travel guide, she's taking you somewhere that's far better than where you are. Loved it, thanks xx" ~ ?Emma-Jayne, West Sussex
"I highly recommend Jessica.
From mumbling down the phone during the first couple of sessions, which were a mixture of hypnotherapy and coaching to answering the phone with a clearer and confident presence, because I begun believing in myself. I had many aha moments and Jess questioned me in ways I had never thought of questioning myself, but it helped me understand myself and how I view life and areas in my life. She also gave me a boat analogy about thought and a very meaningful question that I will never forget. She genuinely believed in me from the beginning and gave me the space to believe in myself and be my own friend.
I had already done a great deal of self work, but the coaching/hypnotherapy journey opened my eyes and took me into a place where I'm ready to grow with a belief that I'm capable and I trust myself.
Jess was my guidance. But I was ready to put in the work and just have a go. What's the worst that could happen? I'm a little more nicer to myself haha :) Thank you! You're a amazing woman. Thank you for sharing what you love." ~ Stasia, Manchester
"I really enjoyed my coaching sessions with Jessica and her no stone left unturned approach suited me as I am a holistic practitioner myself. From session to session I had a growing sense of importance and relevance of my goal and my actions designed around that core were therefor aligned and resonating with my values. Jessica is a great coach to talk to, gifted, professional and empathetic and has tremendous intuition! I will definitely see her again and keep recommending her services to others." ~ Agni, Bristol
"I have been having hypnotherapy with Jess for a while now. I find her sessions so supportive. I love the way she totally boosts my confidence in myself and helps me paint such positive vivid pictures, I feast off them for a long time. I will always remember the inner child work she did with me and how powerful it was and how much it shifted me on. Thank you Jess you are an amazing therapist." ~ Victoria, Worthing, West Sussex
"I am writing this review so that other people don't feel ashamed or embarrassed to say that they went to talk to somone about issues they have with themselves be it there weight or habit they can't seem to kick or a trauma or even day to day events that just seem to get on top of you.It's ok to feel failure.
To understand yourself better and to feel nourished within a deeper concuiousness of your mind enabled me to see the even better person that I could be and am now.
Jess gave me the tools so I can achive more today then I could yesterday...my goals have shifted since Ive met Jess and I more than capable of surpassing them....
Thank you Jess for giving me the confidence to belive in myself xxxxx" ~ Rebecca, West Sussex
"I saw Jess in September 2016 to help stop smoking, I have tried several times to stop in the past and nothing really stuck. I really wanted and needed to give up smoking and knowing that Jess offered this service I thought what the hell and gave it a try.
I was sceptical at first but she made me feel so relaxed explained everything as going to happen and made the process easier than I thought it would ever be.
So 3 months later I still haven't had a cigarette, yes I get moments where I want one however I am now more than capable of dealing with the cravings thanks to Jess." ~ Stewart, West Sussex
?"I have seen Jess for several things, all of which have been hugely helpful - I love this woman - but the help I got with issues I was having with driving after a fairly major car accident I had a few years ago was incredible. I was really struggling every time I got in a car and after a couple of sessions working on this with Jess my fears have completely gone. I now don't even think of jumping in the car and heading off. I would not hesitate to go back for help with anything that needed addressing in my life." ~ Millie, West Sussex
"I went for a hypnotherapy session with Jess about anxiety and I found her so easy to talk to, you can talk things through with someone who understands and know that you're not being judged. Jess explained everything so clearly and I can honestly say I feel so positive since, her hypnotherapy session has really shifted the way I think. I highly recommend Jess if you're dealing with anything big or small." ~ Lucy, Surrey
"Excellent Coach! Jessica's commitment to your well-being is aligned with her amazing compassion and willingness to empower you to become the highest version of yourself! Trust her, book a session and experience the Magic of her gifts!" ~ Naima Nouidjem - Founder, The Power Coaching Formula™, Mexico
“Jessica is very relaxing to be with as a Therapist calm, peaceful and considerate. I so enjoyed my hypnotherapy. I had no idea what I would be letting myself in for, but the feeling of being so relaxed and still able to talk and connect with my emotions was totally unexpected. Then to be able to address them was amazing. I really am feeling a lot more relaxed and in my center. I don't feel the need to cry as I did!! Thank you!” ~ Lynne, West Sussex
"I have always been apprehensive about hypnotherapy and perhaps frightened by the prospect of being slightly out of control in terms of what I might say to someone I know little about. However my sessions with Jess have completely dispelled this fear and opened a door into a therapy that I feel is hugely beneficial. In essence for me it is like a relaxing meditation with a particular focus that initiates shift in thought from negative to positive. It is hugely relaxing and Jess has a great voice for guiding you through. Highly recommended." ~ Flora, West Sussex
“For years I have been lacking in confidence and really struggle in social occasions. I have tried Counselling and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy but with little success and decided to give Hypnotherapy a try and found this to be a really positive step forward. It has offered me an alternative way of thinking, Jess has given me the confidence to challenge myself and face situations, which previously were unthinkable. Due to hypnotherapy I have managed to reduce my medication, which is brilliant and now have hope and a more positive outlook on life. ~ G, Midhurst
“Wow what can I say… An incredible feeling that I thoroughly enjoyed. People are always dubious as was I when it comes to hypnotherapy but until you have experienced it you can not judge, I loved the feeling of pure relaxation, not only in the body but the mind too. And what better person to do it! Jess, from the moment I met her, made me feel welcome and relaxed, she explained hypnotherapy to me and made sure I knew exactly what to expect and how it would work for mw. I loved it and Jess has helped me in every way she could, following up after my appointments and offering advice or a chat if needed between sessions. Lovely girl” ~ Nicole, West Sussex
“I am a person who has battled with negative body image and a hatred for exercise for as long as I can remember. I have tried every diet I know and have made up a lot of unhealthy ones myself to keep 'skinny'. I guess the main thing I can say about the time I have spent with Jess is that she has given me the means to love and respect my body. I don't want to punish it, starve it, fill it with anything that isn't good for me or one of the most important things, hate myself if I do slip up or fancy something to eat that isn't great. I never thought I would actually be able to say I love exercise! I have such motivation and enjoy the feeling of my body getting stronger and healthier. My session with Chloe almost killed me but I have come away with an exercise programme tailored to me, and my lifestyle, that isn't a chore to keep up. I have never had good fitness but have gone from having to stop running after about 500 yards to completing a 5k run without stopping within 4 weeks of training!! The service offered by Jess and Chloe will give you the tools to achieve a genuine lifestyle change and I couldn't be more grateful for this” ~ Sarah, West Sussex – Weight Management & Fitness Package
“Jess gave me a hypnotherapy session to help with my ongoing emetophobia (fear of vomiting). I have had this phobia for as long as I can remember and felt so comfortable talking to Jess about the problems and challenges this phobia has presented. We had a lengthy and in depth chat before the treatment so I could talk through my issues in depth. It was also a chance to learn more about Jess' background and her passion for her work, which made me feel at ease and totally comfortable. I knew I was in safe hands. Following my hypnotherapy treatment I experienced a scenario that would normally absolutely terrify me and send me into an unpleasant panic attack. I was totally amazed at how well I coped. The treatment is so relaxing and Jess does a great job. I'm looking forward to having some follow up sessions with Jess to see what other areas in my life we can work on. A truly kind and amazingly knowledgeable therapist!” ~ Jo, West Sussex
