Jo Cogbill - Berkshire Hypnotherapist
Jo Cogbill, DSFH, HPD, AfSFH* - Mind The Gap Hypnotherapy
I am a fully qualified Solution Focused Hypnotherapist. I will work with you on any issues you have and help you get to your goal, we do not need to dwell on the past. I will ask you to consider your preferred future, for instance, what would be better if the problem had improved? What would be different about you?
We can work together to reduce anxiety and get a better nights sleep, this is done very simply through relaxation and visualization, allowing you to focus on the positive aspects of your life, the Solution Focused way I work encourages a shift in perspective. I will give you the tools to fix yourself.
SF Hypnotherapy combines hypnosis with a range of therapies including Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP).
My sessions are very relaxed and very much focused on what you want. We will have an initial consultation to make sure we are both happy to work together. Then we will move to full sessions lasting 50-55 mins. During sessions we will discuss where you want to be in the future, we do not need to discus the past or any difficult issues if you don't want to. Typically session length for Phobias are 4 sessions and general stress/anxiety or other issues can be from 5 -12 sessions. But you are free to end at any time.
On a personal note Solution focused Hypnotherapy has helped me have a more positive outlook on life and i would love to be able to share this with others.

Other areas of hypnotherapy I deal with
I went see Jo for anxiety issues, it was affecting both my work and home life. Jo's work is both comprehensive and every aspect of the process is explained. I used to go sick from work regularly thanks to her hard work and support I have not gone sick in 10 months as of yet. I was a sceptic but her hypnosis programme has changed my life for the better. I have recommended her to friends. I hope soon to get Jo to do hypnotherapy for smoking. It's a very relaxing experience. It's also safe to drive after your therapy.
Well done Jo and thank you.
After a very bad experience many years ago I have been very nervous about public speaking and always tried to avoid having to do it. I decided it was time to address my fears and thought I would try solution focused hypnotherapy. Jo immediately made me feel at ease with her friendly and calm manner. I had a couple of sessions in which she guided me through a few scenarios, this was a very pleasant and relaxing experience. When I had to give a Presentation a few days later it went better than I could have imagined and I felt very calm beforehand. I had much less anxiety building up to it and did not let it consume my thoughts as it had so often in the past. Thank you Jo, I now feel able to volunteer for so much more in my job.
