Jo Malseed PhD, HPD, DSFH, CPDMH, MNCH (Reg), PGDipDth
I specialise in helping people leave behind largely anxiety and depression-related conditions such as fears, phobias, panic attacks, OCD, sleep problems, low self-confidence, weight issues and trauma, by employing Solution Focused and Clinical Hypnotherapy. I also help clients take control of/manage various more physical conditions, such as chronic pain and fatigue.
These approaches use practical, effective, well researched and up-to-date strategies to help you make lasting, positive changes in your life, in a relatively short period of time. As the name suggests, Solution Focused Hypnotherapy focuses on solutions and forging a better future. We shall strategically employ hypnosis - simply a form of focused attention whilst physically and mentally relaxed - to access our unconscious minds to come up with solutions to problems, and to develop positive forms of behaviour and thinking, which will then become our automatic responses. Additionally, I teach clients self-hypnosis so that they can work intensively at home to effect and consolidate the changes they desire.
“I honestly couldn’t put into words how incredible this woman is. She is so gifted and patient and simply amazing. She has already guided and helped me make such massive changes in how I approach and deal with things and also given me the tools to lay things from the past to rest. What Jo can offer is life changing. I would highly recommend her, she is incredible.”
“I went to Jo for help as I’d been living with chronic insomnia for about 28 years. I also wanted to find the will power to stick at a diet and lose weight. I was constantly exhausted, life in general was an effort and I craved, and gave into, chocolate and sweets on an almost daily basis. I had become resigned to always feeling this way and I admit to feeling sceptical that anything could change such a long standing problem. During our first consultation Jo explored my aims and goals and explained how the process worked, and the links between insomnia and weight issues. Jo is patient, calming, takes the time to explain everything and genuinely cares. I followed the plan and believed in Jo and myself… And here we are, 8 weeks later – I am sleeping, waking up feeling refreshed, life is easy, and I am losing weight! I would urge anyone with similar problems to talk to Jo, you won’t regret it. I’m not one to dramatise but she really has changed my life. A massive, heartfelt THANKYOU Jo.”
