Hi, I’m Judith an award winning clinical hypnotherapist, solution focused brief therapist, author, mum and dog owner.
I am passionate about helping people feel the best they can in life, by overcoming anxieties, fears, pain and discomfort. My specialist area is helping people with anxiety, IBS and coping with chronic conditions.
Living your life with IBS can be exhausting and can hold you back from enjoying your life. I will support you on how you can train your brain to feel calmer and more confident in every day situations.
In my 20s, whilst on holiday in Egypt I experienced poisoning from contaminated water. I was very ill and my gut has never been the same since. I have experienced bouts of constipation and discomfort for years. I had this for weeks at a time and tried lots of so called ‘remedies’ from acupuncture to colonic irrigation to try and ease the discomfort I was experiencing.
In my 30s, I experienced anxiety following a traumatic breakup. My body flared up in an autoimmune response. This left me feeling exhausted with pain in my joints and experiencing weight loss.
In my 40s, my marriage ended, I moved country and became a single parent overnight.
I was going through so many changes and my mind was a whirlwind so I went to see a hypnotherapist for some help. Immediately afterwards I felt calmer and knew I had the strength to cope with what was ahead.
I realised this is what I wanted to do and signed up for a ten month hypnotherapy course. I can honestly say it helped me to transform my mind and my life.
I now help others who are struggling with anxiety, illness and IBS to feel better inside themselves and calm down their body’s stress response.
Let me give you the tools to help you became a calmer and happier version of you. I offer a bespoke confidential 1:2:1 service that is tailored to your needs.
Statistics show that in 80% of cases hypnosis helps IBS symptoms. In addition to the traditional Manchester protocol the solution focused model which I use includes psychotherapy which improves the success rate.
Please get in touch and I will discuss what I can do to help you in a discovery call.
PS – There are no negative side effects to hypnotherapy,. Some common side effects include sleeping better, feeling more confident, trusting your body more and being able to do more of the things you love!
