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
- Life Journey
- Personal Success
- Anger Management
- Confidence Building
- Self Hypnosis & Relaxation
- Individual & Relationship Counselling
- End of Life – for those who are facing severe health challenges or are terminally ill
I am also a trained Meditation Teacher and have run successful group Meditation practices over a number of years, including mindfulness and managing stress, however I often find that people prefer a 1-1 approach, so I now run individual bespoke meditation sessions for those who prefer individual time and space.
- Hypnotherapy £50 per session
- Bespoke Weight Loss Programmes which include Hypnotherapy & Coaching
What My Clients Say
I am so grateful to Julie for getting me through my surgery successfully. I was facing an operation for a joint injury, and not only was I terrified to the point where I panicked just opening letters about appointments, but I also had a long term fear of needles as well. Julie was really patient and kind during our sessions and she got me through the whole process. I still can’t believe that I went through it all so calmly, even when I got into the operating theatre. I was expecting to go to pieces but I didn’t, not even when they injected a nerve blocker! Julie has an immense knowledge of the human mind and how it works and she helped me to prepare for the surgical procedure, manage my anxiety and resolve my fear of needles. I know I couldn’t have coped without her help. Not only was my surgery completed successfully, but my fear of needles has gone. I am now back on track and getting on with my life. I am so glad that I found Julie, I am so grateful to her and I can’t recommend her highly enough
Jodie M, Birmingham
I had been experiencing some sexual problems when I consulted Julie. I was unsure of what to expect at first and was a bit anxious, but I got the help that I needed and I was very happy with the outcome of my sessions. Julie was very professional, she understood and addressed my problem. Excellent, I am very happy to recommend this service
Roger S, Birmingham
I had been experiencing anxiety and agoraphobia. After suffering with these for many years, I felt it was time to seek help. My aim was to attend my son’s wedding without any anxiety, which Julie helped me to achieve. Julie has helped me to cope with my difficulties, giving me a more positive outlook on life , and has given me the confidence to overcome the problems I was experiencing, I felt that she understood what I was going through. Julie is kind, friendly, and helped me to feel at ease. The service at JMF Clinical Hypnotherapy is very professional, and Julie had a real desire to see me get better and start enjoying life. I am happy to recommend Julie’s service.
Annette A, Birmingham
I was experiencing anxiety driving on ‘A‘ roads and motorways and had been avoiding them for 20 years. Julie worked with me on managing stress, relieving anxiety and developing my confidence in going forward. As a result I have been able to drive to places without dodging and avoiding roads, and drive on roads that I hadn’t been on for many years, calmly and on my own, which I hadn’t been able to do for many years before. Julie was patient, understanding, open minded and positive, my experience was fabulous in every respect and I now also have a much better approach to life too. I would thoroughly recommend JMF Clinical Hypnotherapy
Jenny S, Sutton Coldfield
I sought help because of a severe dental phobia, which led to me having to be taken to hospital from the dental surgery. I was a bit nervous and unsure initially about seeking therapy, but it helped me because when I needed to go to the dentist again I was more in control, I didn’t shake all over my body like I did before, and I learned to control my fear of the drill. I’m so happy now that I have been able to complete my dental treatment, I feel much more in control and confident about future visits to the dentist, and I’m really happy that my therapy worked well. Knowing that I’m in control makes me happy and less stressed, and now my dentist and dental nurse are less stressed too. I no longer have weeks of fear in the run up to dental appointments, and I don’t wake up in the night being fearful anymore. Julie was clear, calm and friendly and I would say that the service I received was excellent, and I’m confident about saying this because it worked. I was pleasantly surprised at the outcome being so successful. I would recommend this service because Julie has a calm manner, she is a great listener, and has a wealth of knowledge and understanding of the mind and emotions to be able to bring about the best resolution to the problem.
