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 first qualified as a Clinical Hypnotherapist in 2006, but I also use a range of different techniques to compliment and even enhance this wonderful tecnique. 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, feelings of overwhelm, stress, past traumas, depressive thoughts or other emotional challenges. Most clients experience a real difference after one session, and often that's all that is needed. Each session includes resources that you can keep, usually a mix of guided meditations and short videos demonstrating practical tapping or other techniques. These are valuable tools that you have for whenever you need a top up. 

Sessions can be either on video, in person, or a mixture of both. 

You can see TV clips of me in action treating and helping a variety of clients on my website. www.powertochange.me.uk and check out my "meet Janet" video, and you will also see some compelling testimonials. 

When it comes to weight loss my approach is very unique and is based on my Best Selling Book "The Placebo Diet". With my nutrition training I have created a super simple Colour Coded Nutrition System that is easy to follow and will balance blood sugar reduce cravings and boost immunity and general vitality. Combined with the psychological and emotional techniques it is a game changer when it comes to changing how you think and feel about food and you will naturally want to make better choices. The most common feedback I get is "My body is changing but I don't feel like I am on a diet!" And that's exactly how it works!  It is available in several formats, as an online course, on a retreat or workshop, or in person with one to one sessions, or a tailor made mixture of both.  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.

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, and when change happens, often magic happens with it.

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

- Emotional Eating
- Fear of public speaking
- Motivational Life Coaching
- Professional Training

Free initial telephone session

Additional information

I  offer a complete package which involves sending a hypnosis meditation prior to the session to maximise benefits, as well as a personalised recording or other video technique after the session. This way it's not dependant on just one session/event, and you will have resources that are yours to keep to help you change for good, and for if or when you ever need a refresher or a reboot. The average cost of a 2 hour session plus your personalised resources is around £250.

I am happy to offer a free telephone consultation to advise on the best and most suitable course of treatment.

When I work

I work weekdays and some evenings and weekends subject to availability.

Further information

I love my job. watching people change before you're eyes is incredibly empowering, and I get to do that alot which I am very grateful for. I have been fortunate enough to 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 love it when people I have never met say "I saw you do that "thing" and I tried it and it really works!" I am a Best Selling author of 6 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. Now I am a full time coach and trainer and as much as I love the books and presentations., you cannot beat the one to one interaction with a client helping them release or overcome their anxieties or fears, so coaching remains and always will remain at the heart of my work.

If you feel I am the best person to work with then give me a call and we can have a chat about how I can best help you. If I do not think am not the best person for you to work with I will tell you and direct you in the best way possible. My areas of speciality are: eliminating anxiety and fear, overcoming depression and traumatic experience, emotional eating, weight loss and any food related issue, as well as phobias and stop smoking. If you want to change your mind and change a behaviour or habit too - that's where I come in.

John Gately (As seen on TV)
"To say Janet has given me my life back seems an understatement. Years of trauma vanished in one session, and the physical benefits were as strong as the emotional ones. Pain I had for years spontaneously disappeared and even my long standing skin condition healed within a few weeks. It was a stunning result"

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. I can assure you when you follow Janet’s methods, success is inevitable. As a GP I know from experience the immense value of the techniques Janet uses and teaches".

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.
