About me

Are you experiencing moments when self-doubt creeps in, leaving you feeling anxious, inadequate, and unsure? Whether it's the jittery nerves before an interview, the nagging feeling of imposter syndrome at work, or the struggle to articulate yourself in social settings, I've been there, and I'm here to help you break free. 

My approach is rooted in guiding you from a place of self-doubt, insecurity, and avoidance towards a state of confidence, assurance, and assertiveness. Through hypnotherapy and cognitive behavioural techniques, I can help you reframe your mindset, addressing negative thought patterns, and unlocking your innate potential. Whether it's mastering interviews, stage performances, speaking in work meetings, navigating workplace dynamics, or thriving in social settings, my goal is to equip you with the tools to embrace any public speaking occasion with clarity, composure, and authenticity.

I'm thrilled to share a bit about myself and how I can support you on your journey towards confidence and self-assurance. With over 5 years of experience as a Specialist Occupational Therapist in London's bustling NHS mental health services, I have helped clients with a variety of issues including anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, personality disorders, and psychosis. Through my experience as Hypnotherapist, I've had the honour of walking alongside individuals facing a myriad of challenges, just like you. I specialise in helping people with anxiety-related issues such as social anxiety, confidence issues, public speaking difficulties, imposter syndrome, and perfectionism.You can hear more about my personal story by reading my article "From anxiety to confidence: My story and tips for others".

My clients have expressed appreciation for my understanding, empathy, and practical guidance. They've found solace in relaxation techniques, coping mechanisms, and personalised coping toolkits tailored to their specific needs. My commitment to providing a non-judgmental and supportive space, coupled with my own journey of overcoming similar challenges through hypnotherapy, fosters a sense of trust and rapport that facilitates transformative growth. You can see client testimonials below for more information. 

In my online studio, you can feel heard, valued, and understood. Prompt responses to enquiries ensure you're not left waiting, with introductory sessions booked within 48 hours to kickstart your journey. Weekly sessions are entirely focused on you, ensuring consistent progress towards your goals.

If you have any questions or would like to book an appointment, please don't hesitate to get in touch. I'd love to hear your story and see how we can work together to rewrite it. I offer a free 15-minute consultation to help you decide if my services are right for you.

Member organisations

Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC)

The CNHC encompasses many types of alternative therapy, including hypnotherapy.

In order to be admitted to the register a practitioner must have studied to the National Occupational Standards for that profession/discipline, or have reached the equivalent of the National Occupational Standards through other relevant training or at least three years of experience and been assessed by their peers.

A practitioner must also have professional insurance and agree to abide by the CNHC Code of Conduct, Performance and Ethics.

The General Hypnotherapy Register (GHR)

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.

Further information


1. "I really appreciate Jo, she listened to me without judging. All in all, she took my "problems" (things I wanted to improve seriously) and always found a way, what we could improve and what coping mechanisms would help me best. Now I can use those mechanisms and ideas for other problems as well and it helps, to know, you can take action in nearly every situation. On top, I loved the hypnosis! Her voice was really calm and the pictures with the stairs helped me to totally fall into it. I use the recordings she sent me and the coping list"

2. "Absolutely amazing. Jo is a great listener and though I came to Jo mainly regarding my trichotillomania, she helped me in other ways like dealing with stress and advice around business management. Jo also gave me some other useful skills about how to have effective difficult conversations. All round 10/10"

3. "Jo established a good rapport and relationship with me. It was easy to work with her. She is so patient and she listens. She gave good advice and suggestions. Overall, it was perfect as I have been going through a lot especially work wise. I am grateful"
