About me

“The first time I met Jo, I felt so secure and safe. She is such a wonderful, genuine, caring person who, has helped me to unravel years of significant emotional issues. It was a painful process for me at times but, through Jo’s carefully planned personalised therapy, I now have a stronger emotional core and I am a much happier me!”

Helen (Inner Child Therapy)

Hi there...

I’m Jo and I’m the founder of Be Me Therapy and very proud to be a fully qualified Hypnotherapist. I’m passionate about helping and empowering people to improve their quality of life, take care of their mental health, find healthier coping mechanisms when dealing with life changes and daily pressures and to help them reach their full potential and life goals. I am also a Mum to 3 little ones, a wife, and a career woman - and so I completely understand all the pressures and expectations of today's modern world and the HUGE overwhelm this can bring.

How you can find out more...

Taking that first step and reaching out to a therapist can be a really scary and daunting prospect, so to help you find out more without any upfront commitment, I offer a FREE discovery call for any individual wanting to make positive changes in their lives!

For this, I will provide a safe space for us to talk openly and freely, where you can ask me any questions you may have. We can then look towards how Hypnotherapy can help you to release your limiting beliefs, rid yourself of unwanted habits or negative behaviours and reframe your subconscious mind to enable you to live your best life!

What you will experience...

We will work together to create a bespoke treatment plan to discover how we can move you forward to the place you want to be. During the therapy sessions themselves, I will guide you into a beautiful relaxed state using progressive muscle relaxing techniques, visualisation and soothing background music. It is in this deeply relaxed state, when your subconscious mind - the part of your mind that controls all your emotions and behaviours, actions and reactions - is at its most open and receptive, that we will introduce new more positive ideas and suggestions. It is in this more heightened state of awareness that we can reframe your subconscious mind and release limiting beliefs, habits and any blocks or barriers that are keeping you from living the life to dream of and deserve!

The benefits of Hypnotherapy...

  • Overcome fears and phobias
  • Achieve goals and aspirations 
  • Change negative behaviours and habits
  • Feel calmer and more in control

My approach...

I use a variety of client centred bespoke techniques and hypnotherapy treatments, including mindfulness exercises and Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) practices, to help and empower you to achieve all your goals and aspirations!

One size definitely does not fit all! And everyone's mind is completely different. That’s why I use such a wide variety of techniques, always focusing on your individual needs and requirements, enabling you to achieve the best possible results that are truly transformative and long lasting!

How we can work together...

My treatment programmes are tailored to you and your individual needs and always begin with an in depth initial consultation. This is where I will ascertain your personal requirements in more detail and create a unique treatment plan just for you, as well as giving you the opportunity to experience a confidence boosting deep relaxation. After this, I will develop a programme with you, that is specific to you and your needs, where I will guide you through the whole experience to achieve your goals and reframe any unwanted behaviours you may have.

Who I am...

I am a registrant member and an accredited practitioner with The National Hypnotherapy Society. I am also accredited, registered and approved by the Professional Standards Authority.

An affordable taster to Hypnotherapy...

If you are still feeling a bit unsure if Hypnotherapy is for you, and worried about the potential financial investment you are making, then I run weekly "Me Time" Guided Relaxation Sessions via ZOOM and face to face.

These sessions are designed to be really enjoyable, wonderfully relaxing and hugely effective for releasing stress, controlling anxiety and building self esteem.

They are the perfect introduction to Hypnotherapy, because they include very similar relaxation and visualisation techniques that you will experience during hypnosis. They are a definite "dipping your toe in" immersive experience, that I am confident you will enjoy and feel all the amazing benefits from. 

Sessions cost £40 for X4 1hr weekly sessions.

Or £12.50 for a one-off "pay as you go" 1hr session.

You can book these anytime through my website, or by messaging me directly.

How I work...

I offer Online Therapy sessions via Zoom (UK & International) as well as face to face sessions from my home in Wakefield, West Yorkshire. And no matter where we meet, I will always make sure I treat you with respect, compassion, understanding and complete discretion.

Over to you...

Are you committed to changing your life and creating a new future? If the answer is YES!!! Then let's have a chat... I’d absolutely love to work with you!
