About me

Hello and a warm welcome to Hypnotherapy Bournemouth

A New Year Special Offer.......A free one hour initial consultation and a special price first session of £35......Initial Consultation must be booked by 31st January 2021 and first session to be taken by 28th Feb

Due to the current Covid 19 restrictions I am currently only offering online sessions via Zoom, but please don’t let that dissuade you from contacting me. If I can master the world of online sessions you can too and I’m the least techie person you’ll find! There has been many discussions in the world of therapy regarding the efficacy of online work and many therapists, myself included have found it a successful way of working. It allows you, the client, to be in the relaxing space of your own home without the added time needed to travel to see me. If you live in a busy home with kids and pets and little privacy then you may want to wait for a one to one appointment. Hopefully with the vaccines being rolled out we can now see that in the not too distant future.

I normally hold my hypnotherapy/psychotherapy and coaching sessions in the beautiful and comfortable surroundings of my home at Avon Castle in Ringwood, which is in easy reach of both Bournemouth, Poole, Christchurch, Ferndown and surrounding areas. However at present I am conducting my sessions online via Zoom as I find this the most stable of connections to use. The day before the session I will send you an email link that you simply click on and I can help you from there. Providing you have a good WiFi signal you should be ready to go, but I can always talk you through it via phone prior to the session.

At a free, no obligation consultation, I aim to provide you with a comfortable, relaxed and confidential space to give you the opportunity to talk about the areas of your life that are not serving you well. This is also your opportunity to find out a little more about me and whether you feel I am a good fit for you too!

Everyone is uniquely unique and therefore my approach is tailored to meet your needs for the outcomes you’re wanting to achieve. At your free initial, no obligation consultation I will discuss with you whether I feel you require a more in depth therapy of Pure Hypnoanalysis, psychotherapy, brief suggestion hypnotherapy or coaching.

2020 has been a very challenging year for us all and our mental health has undoubtedly suffered, whether it has heightened pre existing conditions such as anxiety and depression or problems have manifested for the first time it is so vitally important to talk about it. Relationships have been strained, finances stretched, home schooling whilst also trying to work from home have all added layers of stress unprecedented in our generation. Stress affects us mentally, physically and behaviourally and can be exhausting, but is a natural primitive response to fear and danger. How we perceive it will determine whether we are able to adapt to it and therefore ride it out or whether we feel totally overwhelmed by it all.

Maybe being at home you’ve eaten a little too much or the yardarm has been getting earlier in the day you are not alone. Everyone has been trying to find different ways to cope through this pandemic, but I can help you to unpick what is going on for you, find better ways of coping and build resilience which can help you not only survive what is going on but can help you thrive and see hope for the future.

It could be that having had time on your hands you’ve thought that areas in your life need to change for you, whether that’s a new career, a move, a change of relationship, health and wellness goals. These life domains can be assisted by the exciting area of evidenced based positive psychology coaching.

In all cases I will listen to your concerns and work with you for the best possible outcome and success.

What I am always pleased to see in many of my clients is the other added benefits to their health and wellbeing after having solved their initial problem with me. For example, help initially with low self-esteem and confidence can result in you changing your eating habits leading to successful weight loss or deciding to pursue a new career

I firmly believe that everyone has huge capacity to use their own minds to change non serving patterns of behaviours and habits, you just need to be shown how. Developing your self esteem, self efficacy and resilience can be hugely empowering and give you the skills to navigate life’s up and downs.

Having been in practice for nearly 15 years I have a wealth of experience and many training courses under my belt and therefore a large toolbox to call on for many different issues. I am committed to my own Personal and Professional Development and like to keep up to date on new research and methods to serve my client’s best interests.

If you would like to know more please feel free to give me a call. If I’m with a client it will go to voicemail, which only I have access to and is therefore totally confidential, but please leave me a message and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.

Thank you for reading! Jo x
