About me

I am a fully qualified Clinical Hypnotherapist and a Future Life Progression Practitioner and Master Trainer. I have worked in mental health settings for over 20 years.

My practice is in central Bath.

I offer a free 1 hour consultation so that you can ask any questions and find out more about hypnotherapy and whether it feels right for you.

I tailor sessions to suit you as an individual.

If you struggle with anxiety, stress and/or depression this can lead to addictions, fears, phobias, illness and panic attacks. Hypnotherapy for anxiety can significantly reduce feelings of fear and intense worry. It can help you develop the ability to access a much calmer state of mind and make this a habit going forward into the future.

If you feel like you are stuck and your life is going around in circles, I can help you become aware of limiting beliefs and subconscious patterns that constantly hold you back. We can then shift the old and programme new more desirable traits, behaviours and motivations.

I am qualified in Counselling skills and offer talk therapy when it is needed.

If you want to be the best version of you... get in touch!

Further information


Where to begin? The practitioner or the treatment? Both are superb. I went with a long standing condition and I was desperate for change. Jo is so easy to be with. She is engaged, interested, intelligent and without judgement. The hypnotherapy was fascinating and went deep which has made change possible. The changes are subtle and gradual for me but are most definitely there and I am so much closer to where I want to be. The journey is not over because Jo made a recording tailored to my personal needs which I listen to regularly. The changes continue. One of my better investments. Gail

Jo is a joy to work with, creative and focused with great attention to detail. From the very start, she made me feel extremely comfortable and helped me to clarify my vision for a more successful future life. Then she used her hypnotherapy skills to effectively re-programme my expectations. Jo doesn’t just understand this stuff, she lives it fully. I have found the whole process to be a truly inspirational experience and would not hesitate to recommend her. Alec

This was my first experience of progression hypnotherapy and it was profound! My hypnotherapy was done via Skype. I felt calm, safe and secure at all times - completely held by Jo. The session provided me with the clarity I was seeking and I am still using the information to help guide me. I would recommend this treatment whole heartedly. Lorraine

"I went to see Jo to get help to stop smoking, I’m ashamed to admit that I did smoke quite heavily, but now after working with Jo I’m pleased to say that “I am now a non-smoker and I will be a non-smoker for the rest of my life”.
Jo was very understanding, we spent a long time chatting, she was non judgmental and listened to my particular circumstances, which she then tailor-made to my sessions. Since I’ve stopped smoking Jo has continued to be supportive and I can’t thank her enough". 

"The recording I received from Jo certainly has exceeded my expectations. I mostly listen to it just before falling asleep at night. Firstly, I find her voice magically calming. Secondly, it triggers high levels of peace and joy in me, which relax me within the first thirty seconds of the recording. I usually go straight away into a deep trance, where my body falls asleep yet I am consciously aware of listening to the words in a deeply relaxed manner without really focusing on the words themselves. It feels like taking a power nap, where everything that matters happens in me with no conscious effort at all... As a psychotherapist and an experienced trance-meditation practitioner I can highly recommend these recordings. Whether one looks for something to be for just a physical and mental relaxation or a specifically chosen area of improvement Jo has one of those magic voices that can easily guide the usually busy physical mind to a place of magic, where the process of thinking is suspended and one feels complete and content in the moment as it is". 

I cannot recommend Jo highly enough, professional, friendly and makes you feel at ease. I suffered with lots of anxiety and sleepless nights whilst pregnant and Jo did me a recording, it made me feel relaxed, improved my mood and sleep pattern. Thankyou so much Jo. Kathleen

Really enjoyed my session and came away with a renewed sense of purpose. Jo is warm, open and a true professional. I highly recommend this amazing lady. Heidi
