About me

It's important to find a therapist who you can trust and who you believe has the experience and skills to genuinely help you; there are many great therapists, but we are all different so spend some time and choose the right one for you. Here is some information about me and how I work that you may find useful. I qualified as a Clinical Hypnotherapist in 2006 but I also use a range of different techniques to compliment and even enhance this great therapy. Before training in hypnotherapy I had already worked as a coach and a trainer for many years. I have also trained in TFT ( EFT - Tapping), Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), IEMT (Integral Eye Movement Therapy) Psy Tap and other modalities and methods. Over the years I have also developed my own unique highly effective techniques. As well as working with clients I also run a range of popular training courses through my company "Power To Change.Me".

Although I am most well known for my work with weight loss clients being a Best Selling author and TV expert, I also have a huge passion for helping anyone with anxiety fears phobia or other emotional challenges. You can see TV clips of me in action on my website. www.powertochange.me.uk

My approach to weight loss is very unique and is based on my Best Selling Book "The Placebo Diet". It is available in several formats, as an online course, on a retreat or workshop, or in person with one to one sessions. It is a unique blend of videos and hypnotherapy tracks, you can find out more here www.theplacebodiet.co.uk and also get a free sample lesson.

My profession is helping people change their lives (and sometimes their bodies) for good. I am one of those rare people who can say hand on heart - I love my job.

As well as being an accredited Trainer of many of the therapies I have trained in, I run my own unique training courses for therapists based on the unique and innovative techniques and systems I have developed over 25 years of working with clients to overcome a range of issues and achieve success. I am often asked by National Media for top tips and advice as well as by other therapists and am always happy to help. I feel passionately about getting the positive messages out there as I know personally and professionally that change really is possible.

Further information

I have had great media success having often been featured on national television and in national media demonstrating my methods and successes and some TV clips can be seen on my website www.powertochange.me.uk . I am a Best Selling author of 5 books including "The Placebo Diet"  and "Tapping For Life". My career started in the Health Industry; I was Head Of Training for a National Slimming Chain before opening my own 3 Health Clubs which I ran successfully for 12 years. It was here I realised that emotional eating can and regularly does sabotage any attempt at weight loss, and that you have to change your mind if you want to change your body.

Determined to help my clients fix and change their mind as well as their body I first trained in Clinical Hypnotherapy. Once I realised the transformative power of this kind of change work I went on to train in a range of additional therapies such as NLP, Life Coaching, TFT (Tapping or EFT) and IEMT (Eye Movement Therapy) so that I can offer a complete system that uses the very best of each technique to get my clients (maybe some just like you) the best possible results. I realised right away that this skill set can be used to treat a range of conditions not just weight loss issues and I left my Health Clubs in 2005 to follow my passion and began working full time as a therapist and trainer. I run clinics in Leicester and North London.


John Gately (As seen on TV)
"To say Janet has given me my life back seems an understatement."

Dr Mark Chambers
"When the principles which Janet practices and teaches are learned and adopted, these can be applied to any area in life where change is wanted. If people commit and follow Janet’s method, success is inevitable".

Janey Lee Grace Radio 2 presenter and best selling author.
"Janet is a great teacher and her techniques work quickly and easily to bring you immediate benefits. I totally recommend her.”

Kerri Torr (as seen on TV)
“Before I met Janet I had a fear of tunnels and height which really affected my life… not any more!!! Both are gone. I can now go in elevators and even went in an underground restaurant which I would never have been able to do before – it’s given me back my freedom”

Caroline Wilcox
"INSPIRATIONAL! I cannot believe how positive such simple techniques can make you feel. Is it legal to feel this good about yourself!”

Deb James
"Having suffered with an eating disorder for years, I had tried and tried to beat it on my own - without success.  In fact, it seemed to be getting worse and I was at the end of my tether".

After just one session with Janet I found the techniques worked immediately; completely eradicating some really negative behaviours.  They also helped me to change the way you I think and feel about food in general.

It has now been 3 months and I’ve had no recurrence of the negative behaviours, have a really healthy relationship with food and am losing weight naturally, without fad diets or gimmicks.

Fiona Gregory
"Janet has a warmth about her and she is so passionate, knowledgeable and genuinely thrilled that the system that she has developed is able to help so many people; it's difficult not to be excited yourself. The best part is that it works!  I can't thank Janet enough for helping me find a better way to live my life".

Liza Collins
I went to see Janet after years of binge eating and dieting. I had tried everything and nothing had worked, food was my comfort and also my enemy. Within a few sessions, years of bad thoughts and habits began to change. I now have a healthy and enjoyable approach to food and the unexpected additional benefits of improved self worth and self esteem have been a pleasant side effect of the treatment! I totally recommend Janet’s coaching to anyone who wants to change physically or emotionally.
