The right therapist for you is important.  The relationship between you and your therapist is key to the success of any therapy.  So whether you choose to contact me, or someone else, make sure you take the time to have a conversation to find someone that you feel completely comfortable with.

I was first introduced to complementary therapy  when I had my own fertility challenges.  After the birth of my daughter in 2004, using Hypnobirthing, I reassessed my interests and personal values and decided to embark on my journey into  therapy training and a life changing career.

Previously I worked in a stressful corporate role. I can relate to the demands and challenges of business life and clients who are struggling with anxiety related problems which often leads to stress, panic attacks and hormonal imbalance.

The therapies I offer:

COGNITIVE HYPNOTHERAPY for a whole range of issues including Anxiety, to increase Confidence, banish Phobias, stop Insomnia, or help you Lose Weight. I also run Hypnofertility programmes for natural conception or IVF cycles,

REFLEXOLOGY for relaxation, stress, back pain, digestive disorders, hormonal imbalance. and stress, I also offer Fertility Reflexology for Natural Conception or IVF cycles and Pregnancy Reflexology to prepare for birth or to induce labour.

HYPNOBIRTHING to give you the tools to aid you to have the most calm birth experience possible for you.

"I went to Jo for hypnosis for fertility and stress relief at work.  After my initial session I felt much calmer and relaxed.  I now feel much more in control at work and feel a lot less stressed.  I cannot recommend Jo enough, she has made going to work almost a pleasure!"

Victoria

Editor

"I was a bit apprehensive about whether cognitive hypnotherapy could help with my issue, but Jo really knows her stuff and everything she said made so much sense. Jo is really easy to talk to, which was really important to me. I felt totally comfortable with her, and will definitely be seeing her again next time I need a bit of help."

Angela

“I am happy to report that I am sleeping much better and have not had a night where I have woken in the middle of the night since our last session.  I am enjoying my job much more and I feel more confident. This has had a positive impact on my home life and relationship as well.”

"I cannot stress enough how effective reflexology has been on improving my lower backache and stress levels. It was painful and stiff every day. Now after seeing Jo, I hardly have any pain. I am also more relaxed, less stressed and more in tune with my body.”
