Just to say thank you again, what we covered in the sessions really helped me overcome the anxiety issues I was experiencing at the time, and I feel I learnt a lot of useful things to help me continue to maintain a positive wellbeing.
All in all these sessions were fantastic and helped empower me to make some very strong decisions in my life lately that put me first.
Jo had a knack of knowing where I was coming from and I spoke to her about things I wouldn’t with others.
I’m really happy to say that I downloaded the recording and have had four VERY calm flights. I’m thrilled and I’m recommending you to everyone. Thank you so much.

I got so much more from my sessions than I was expecting.
I was very nervous before our first session and was worried I wouldn't be able to open up in our meetings so we could get to the root cause of the problems. I looked forward to the future session after the first one went so well.
Jo was very calming. I came in with my brain racing 100 miles an hour and I noticed I reacted quickly to her voice and calmed too.
I was so overwhelmed, without Jo looking in and being able to help me unpick the most important underlying issues, I still would not be able to see the wood for the trees.
I was apprehensive at first but I felt very relaxed and receptive. Absolutely in rapport and everything was explained very clearly. All went well from the first session.
"The sessions provided me with a range of relaxation techniques that I have been able to utilise on a regular basis in everyday life. The hypnosis recordings are particularly useful in helping me switch off ahead of going to bed, especially after a stressful day at work."
"What wonderful work you do! You have made such a difference to my life, but also to my husband and children. Thank you so much."
"I can't thank you enough for all you have done for me. Very relaxed and happier about the future."
“I was a little sceptical beforehand, but you were very welcoming. I enjoyed the hypnotherapy session and felt so much calmer and more relaxed afterwards. I found the voice recording that you gave me on CD was also helpful and I listen to it regularly.”
Just a quick update to let you know that since my smoking cessation session on 20 June I have not had a cigarette. I'm not saying I have found it easy but based on my past experiences trying to quit I have found that my will power appears to be much stronger and as such much easier to say no when tempted. Thank you again for assisting me with what is a life changing event.
I've been listening to all the recordings and find them very helpful, particularly if I wake up at night - I find I can get back to sleep if I listen to one or two of them, so that is fantastic. I think that if I keep listening to the recordings and reading the handouts you gave me regularly that I will be able to take control and overcome the stress and anxiety I've been bothered with.
I enjoyed the sessions and found them interesting, revealing and helpful.

“As I watched the session, I could tell that you were making a real difference to my daughter. She visibly relaxed and had fun using her imagination with you. It definitely helped with her dog phobia and has increased her confidence a lot.”

“I would say that I am quite an anxious person, and I experienced feelings of panic and stress for many years ever since my father died unexpectedly when I was about 20. I found the hypnosis and the interventions that you used, really helped me to begin to come to terms with my feelings. I have realised that I need to change the way that I think sometimes, and focus on finding ways to stay calm and spend more time doing the things that I enjoy and which make me happy.”
Waking up in the night for the toilet, and then lying awake worrying about everything and anything for up to two hours is a thing of the past. Now (after just one session with Jo Hand) I settle down again and do the relaxation breathing / visualisation technique that she showed me and I am soon fast asleep. From time to time as a booster, I play the CD that she made of my hypnosis session. I look at life in a more relaxed way and I am kinder to myself. I am a different person.
“The coaching session clarified for me that I need to prepare and document an action plan. It was reassuring as I began to realise that I had already started to consider some of my options in detail. You challenged me positively, which helped me to think more widely and consider additional options as well. I had been balancing so many things in my mind, but this session made me feel much more positive. Thank you - it was incredibly useful and it feels as if we have really achieved something today.”
