Hypnotherapy is a relaxing and effective form of therapy in which we utilize the natural state of trance to help bring about positive change.

We are all familiar with trance, and go in and out of it naturally many times each day when walking, driving or watching the television for example. During trance, although it may feel as if we have switched off, our brains are actually working four times harder than usual to process information and come up with solutions. Trance heightens our awareness and concentration, and during this time we are more susceptible to suggestion.

In therapy, we use trance to help you focus on what you want to acheive, moving forward positively. We can dissolve unhelpful programming, and help you move towards your goals. During therapy, trance sessions are typically relaxing and enjoyable, and you remain in control throughout the process.

gbp-1Jo has the advantage of using Solution-Focused Hypnotherapy. This technique is future orientated, and therefore we focus on where you are now and what you want to achieve, rather than analyzing the past. This form of hypnotherapy is based on the latest neuro-scientific research and the current understanding of how the brain works.

During your free Initial Consultation, Jo will gather information from you about your current circumstances and how you would like to move forward. She will explain how the brain works, based on the latest brain-based research, and why it is we can suffer in the way that we do from anxiety disorders, depression, fears and phobias, OCD, and so on. Jo will then explain how she can help you get back on top of things by bringing out the very best in you, and putting you back in control of your life.

‘Jo has helped me far beyond my expectations.  Through her sensitive, understanding and expert approach, I now have freedom from a crippling issue with insomnia which I had suffered from for over 20 years.  In just a few sessions with Jo, my quality of life has improved incredibly.  From being constantly anxious about the issue and feeling like I couldn’t cope, I’m now sleeping soundly and feeling happy, content and full of energy.  Her treatments gave me that ‘Eureka’ moment where, for the first time ever, I understood my issue and she gave me the tools to overcome it.  I truly can’t thank her enough.  I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending her to anyone who wants to improve their well-being.’ Sharon, Plymouth

‘Thank you! I am so liberated by the confidence I now feel!‘ L, Plymouth

‘Jo has changed my life, I was on the point where I couldn’t function anymore and now I can enjoy life. I learned so much and she so patiently stood by me when nothing was moving. I always felt welcome and accepted. I think that she has an excellent approach and soothing voice, and her intelligence and knowledge make her a top expert in the field.’ D, Plymouth

‘Thanks to your amazing sessions, I have achieved a classic size 12/14 (from 18/20), without the aid of detrimental diets, tortuous tape measuring, and wearisome weighing. With your help, I simply changed my relationship with food. The added bonus is that as well as wearing lovely flattering clothes (instead of ‘cover-ups’), I am so liberated by the confidence I now feel. Thank you so much.’ A, Plymouth

‘As a hypersensitive person even the good events in life affected me negatively and finally I was diagnosed with anxiety. Hypnotherapy with Jo alleviated all my symptoms in a short period. I am now a happy and confident person, equipped to deal with life and to enjoy it more than I ever have been.’ D, Plymouth

‘Jo has enabled me to see life differently, by opening a door into how exciting and fulfilling life can be, by changing my own perspective. There are no more worries, only opportunities to creatively come up with solutions […] My confidence in my own ability has increased dramatically, I am now doing things that I would not of believed that I could do. And I am looking forward to the future […] My only regret is that I didn’t meet Jo in my thirtys. Thank you so much Jo.’ Kathy, Plymouth

‘Life changing. Highly recommended!’ Gerry, Plymouth

‘I cannot thank Jo enough in helping me to regain my confidence and belief in myself. Its been a brilliant journey and one I am entirely grateful to Jo for. I am certainly more happy, positive and enjoying life so much more with my son and husband.’ Kym, Plymouth
