About me

Hi, my name is Jo Smyth and I specialise in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy.  I help people to make changes in their lives.

My patient promise to all my clients "I promise to be there for you every step of your journey.  My goal is to help you grow from your struggles, heal from your pain, and move forward to where you want to be in your life".  This symbolises how you will be treated when working with me, I understand that life throws us all curveballs at times which can knock us but I will be for those as well.  

How we think and what we tell ourselves impacts on how we feel and act.  We all desire to feel calmer, confident and in control.

At 'Hello Sunshine' I use Hypnosis combined with the Solution Focused Brief Therapy, Cognitive based therapy, NLP and Neuroscience to help you change your perspective and achieve what you want in life. 

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy helps you to make steps to move towards what you want, rather than just moving away from the unwanted problems.  Here is a testimonial from a previous client "6 sessions with Jo has made major changes in my life; stress, anxiety and depression are more manageable.  I can see the knock on effect within my family.  Try it hand on heart you won't be disappointed".

  • Anxiety (including panic attacks)
  • Depression
  • Addictions / Addiction Recovery 
  • PTSD
  • Sleep Issues 

These are just some of the areas that I can help you with, however if you have a specific issue that is not mentioned below please get in touch to discuss it further and I will provide answers or guidance to help support you.

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained at the Clifton Practice Hypnotherapy School, which is considered to be the gold standard in hypnotherapy and is recognised as the Centre of Excellence for hypnotherapy/psychotherapy training.  This training ensures that I deliver a high quality and professional service. 

I am a qualified Clinical Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapist and I look forward to supporting you in on your journey to become your true self and breaking free from the issues in your life that are holding you back.

I love the positive and sometimes life changing effects hypnotherapy has on people, the satisfaction from helping others is priceless, 'I love my job'. 

I often get asked where the name Hello Sunshine came from I spent 14 years on my own personal fertility journey and have been blessed with the most wonderful little girl who is my 'sunshine' no matter how grey the clouds are or what curveballs life throws, she reminds me of brighter day and how grateful I am, so for me to help others the name just seemed perfect. 

I am registered with the following professional organisations - 

  • the Association of Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (AfSFH)
  • The National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH)
  • The Complementary and National Healthcare Council (CNHC), which is the UK regulator for complementary healthcare practitioners, which I work subject to their Code of Ethics.
  • I hold an Access NI Enhanced Disclosure Certificate which enables me to work with children and vulnerable adults. 
  • I hold Hypnotherapy Practitioners Insurance underwritten by Holistic Insurance Services. 

I have always wanted to help others prior to becoming a hypnotherapist, I spent 16 years working in the community and voluntary sector with learning disability, and mental health.

Hypnotherapy can enhance the well-being of individuals diagnosed with serious medical conditions, but should not take the place of medical treatment and advice.
