Anxiety

I contacted Jo when I felt at a real low point in my life. Anxiety was affecting me to such an extend I was finding social situations, work and family difficult to manage. I was becoming particularly anxious about an important event and was concerned I was not going to be able to cope. Even the thought of seeking help for the problem was causing me huge anxiety, but I am so glad I chose Jo. Her calm, understanding approach helped me to explore the negative feelings that have been with me for many years and I can see how early childhood events have impacted on me throughout my life.

Working with Jo for several months gave me the understanding and empowerment to move forward and not let anxiety hold me back. Most importantly, I am so happy to report that I coped with the important social event confidently and calmly and I even enjoyed it! Something I never thought possible a year ago. Thank you, Jo.

Mum of teenager with anxiety

My teenage child was experiencing low mood for a protracted period of time due to some peer related issues which had lead to very low self esteem and general anxiety. Problems persisted for almost 2 years, with feelings of “flatness”.
We agreed that pills would not be the first treatment of choice so looked around for a therapist who would have the skills to help.
My child was quite reluctant to try talking therapy but after the first consultation started to see the potential to get better.

The sessions were supportive and skillfully lead, enabling my child to understand why those negative feelings had persisted for so long and validating the emotions.   Further work took place and after only a few sessions my child started to feel much better, more confident, more relaxed and less stressed.

Teenage years are very difficult for children with so many educational and social pressures and as a parent despite your best attempts you sometimes need help to support your child through challenging times.

If you are going through similar challenges I would recommend Jo who has a natural empathy with young people and get them on the road to recovery.

Child and Parent session

The biggest secret is to not “go there” in terms of panicking and thinking here we go again!!! After years of sleep issues with my son, I decided to give hypnotherapy ago. I was recommended Ms Rogers by a fellow mum from the school playground and so I made my consultation appointment.  This process was revealing and
the underlying issues that surrounded my sons sleep were revealed. Through the session my son was happy to share information and I learnt a lot from it too.
When we went for the actual hypnotism session, I had to be present due to My son being a minor I engaged with the session too. This meant I picked up some “relaxing” hints and tips to use at bedtime. My anxiety over the sleep issue also lessened.
I can honestly say that bedtime has improved so much, we have had the odd night where settling has been tricky but overall I would say we are handling it so much better and with a ninety five per cent success level everyone in the family has benefitted from the hypnotism.
Professional, friendly and very calming I would recommend Ms Rogers to any parent who is struggling.

* I originally undertook Thrive with Johanna with the intention of losing weight. I have found that this has given me so much more than I expected. It has enabled me to take back control of my life, given me confidence and helped me to see what is really important. I now feel much calmer and satisfied both at home and at work.

* Hi Jo,

Quick update on my weightloss progress since returning to school.

So despite my worry, donuts, cakes and biscuits have proved no challenge for me, and I have actually avoided ALL sweet things at school this term, and we are 4 weeks in! Weight wise, I am 11 lbs down since we first met. Everything is great – I am enjoying eating and craving healthy food, eating a lot less and feeling like this is a very natural way to eat. I laugh inside to myself when I hear people rant on and on about calorie counting, but I doubt anyone will want to take advice from the fat girl….until she is no longer the fat girl that is! School is crazy – this is by far the worst time I can remember for being a teacher in state school. If I continue with my success, maybe I can make a new career helping people lose weight….you never know!?!??

Thanks for all your help, and the fact that I have not felt the need to see you again is a testament to your expertise!

Best regards,

Anxiety client
