Jo Hooson B.Ed(hons), DipHyp, GQHP. Accredited Mindfulness teacher.
I am currently working online and at The Soul Spa in Bath.
I offer a free consultation so that you can ask any questions and find out more about what I offer and whether it feels right for you.
I tailor sessions to suit you as an individual. I use a blend of Hypnotherapy and Mindfulness.
All of my work is centred around the present moment and what is happening for you in there here and now. I help you tune in to yourself and your experience and the thoughts, feelings and responses that are coming up for you. Are you living on automatic pilot mode with the same experiences repeating in your life? You can only change your outer experience when you change within.
Hypnotherapy is a state of inner focus where you can access your subconscious mind and become clearer about YOU.
I use my skills as a hypnotherapist to guide you into a deeply relaxed state. As you drop into trance you will feel deeply calm and relaxed. Hypnosis is a state of awareness beyond the thinking mind. In everyday life, we are unaware of our subconscious but it has a huge influence on how we behave, feel and respond in the conscious state. I can help you to feel better and to become aware of your unconscious patterns of behaviour. I help you to make new choices, access new strengths and create inner change which allows a different conscious experience.

I am registered with:

A practitioner must also have professional insurance and agree to abide by the CNHC Code of Conduct, Performance and Ethics.
The General Hypnotherapy Register
Hypnotherapists may become members of the General Hypnotherapy Register if they satisfy certain criteria with regard to both training and ongoing requirements as determined from time to time by the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council (GHSC).
Members are either registered at Practitioner status (which confirms that the GHR acknowledges their qualification to practice), or Affiliate status. Although Affiliate level registrants will have completed a sufficient number of training hours to equip them to commence seeing clients on a limited basis, the GHR does not acknowledge them to have yet been trained to full practitioner level.
All GHR Registered Practitioners are required to accept the published Code of Ethics and Complaints & Disciplinary Procedure.
Accredited register membership

Areas of hypnotherapy I deal with
Information about health conditions (*)
Hypnotherapy can enhance the well-being of individuals diagnosed with serious medical conditions, but should not take the place of medical treatment and advice. If you have been diagnosed with - or suspect you may have - any of these conditions, please speak to your doctor before starting hypnotherapy.
Other areas of hypnotherapy I deal with
Consciously Creating your life or 'Manifesting'.
I offer a free consultation.
£55 per 1 hour session in person
Evening and weekend sessions available on request.
Where to begin? The practitioner or the treatment? Both are superb. I went with a long standing condition and I was desperate for change. Jo is so easy to be with. She is engaged, interested, intelligent and without judgement. The hypnotherapy was fascinating and went deep which has made change possible. The changes are subtle and gradual for me but are most definitely there and I am so much closer to where I want to be. The journey is not over because Jo made a recording tailored to my personal needs which I listen to regularly. The changes continue. One of my better investments. Gail
"I've been working with Jo for a few months now and she has really helped me to understand how I create my own life and how to live more consciously. She is a very professional and caring therapist who is very skilled at the work she does. I highly recommend her". Kate
Jo is a joy to work with, creative and focused with great attention to detail. From the very start, she made me feel extremely comfortable and helped me to clarify my vision for a more successful future life. Then she used her hypnotherapy skills to effectively re-programme my expectations. Jo doesn’t just understand this stuff, she lives it fully. I have found the whole process to be a truly inspirational experience and would not hesitate to recommend her. Alec
This was my first experience of hypnotherapy and it was profound! My hypnotherapy was done via Skype. I felt calm, safe and secure at all times - completely held by Jo. The session provided me with the clarity I was seeking and I am still using the information to help guide me. I would recommend this treatment whole heartedly. Lorraine
"The recording I received from Jo certainly has exceeded my expectations. I mostly listen to it just before falling asleep at night. Firstly, I find her voice magically calming. Secondly, it triggers high levels of peace and joy in me, which relax me within the first thirty seconds of the recording. I usually go straight away into a deep trance, where my body falls asleep yet I am consciously aware of listening to the words in a deeply relaxed manner without really focusing on the words themselves. It feels like taking a power nap, where everything that matters happens in me with no conscious effort at all... As a psychotherapist and an experienced trance-meditation practitioner I can highly recommend these recordings. Whether one looks for something to be for just a physical and mental relaxation or a specifically chosen area of improvement Jo has one of those magic voices that can easily guide the usually busy physical mind to a place of magic, where the process of thinking is suspended and one feels complete and content in the moment as it is".
I cannot recommend Jo highly enough, professional, friendly and makes you feel at ease. I suffered with lots of anxiety and sleepless nights whilst pregnant and Jo did me a recording, it made me feel relaxed, improved my mood and sleep pattern. Thankyou so much Jo. Kathleen
Really enjoyed my session and came away with a renewed sense of purpose. Jo is warm, open and a true professional. I highly recommend this amazing lady. Heidi
