Cognitive Hypnotherapist, Reflexologist & Hypnobirthing Practitioner

I was introduced to a variety of different complementary therapies when I faced my own fertility challenges.  After eventually falling pregnant, I used hypnobirthing techniques to help me give birth naturally to my daughter. Afterwards, having seen the power of hypnosis for myself, I made the decision to retrain so I could empower other women, like you, to achieve their optimum health and well-being.I have been a full time therapist for nearly nine years. Previously I worked in a stressful managerial role, so can relate to the demands and challenges a corporate career can bring you, and have seen for myself anxiety related problems which if left can lead to stress, panic attacks and hormonal imbalance.

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

"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."

“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.  Also, 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 was terrified of giving birth but after going to Jo’s hynobirthing sessions I felt so much more positive. She taught me numerous different ways to help relax me during the labour as well as practical tecnhiques which will help me in everyday life.”        

"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.”
