Clinical Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapist in Basildon, Essex
'When we become educated we become empowered'
Hello and welcome to iHypnosis Therapy Essex - based in Basildon, Essex
My name is Jodine Downham DHP (LAPHP, LNRPC) and I am a fully qualified professional Clinical Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapist. I specialise in anxiety, well-being, and weight loss.
My hypnotherapy practice is based in Basildon, Essex, and is in a great location that is within easy reach of Laindon, Billericay, Wickford, Pitsea, Canvey Island, Brentwood, Thurrock, Benfleet, Chelmsford, and Southend with FREE easy access parking. I am also fully insured, fully accredited and a proud member of the NRPC and the APHP, both are highly respected organisations that not only offer me continuous training but also reassure my clients that I have received first-class training. I provide my clients with a calm, peaceful, safe, and confidential environment.
Hypnotherapy is hypnosis combined with therapeutic techniques which can offer help with many things including relaxation, anxiety, weight loss, panic attacks, low confidence, motivation, and positive thinking amongst many other things.
I specialise in anxiety and have helped many clients overcome many things. My clients learn what anxiety is, the different symptoms, why they get it, and what they can do to reduce it or most often stop it. I teach my clients tools to use, new ways of thinking, and hypnotherapy. I use many other types of therapy also including EFT, CBT, NLP, Psycho-education, Psychotherapy, Art therapy, Mind coaching, and hypnosis depending on the client's needs and realistic desires.
FREE 15 Minute Suitability Phone Consultation
I offer a FREE 15-minute suitability phone consultation with no obligation.
This is really to see if the type of therapy I use will be of benefit to you and more importantly that we both feel happy to continue. This is massively important for you as my client to feel completely at ease and happy with me as a therapist also. This is also a chance for us to have a friendly chat about the areas of your life you would like me to maybe help you fulfill. All being well, I would then invite you in for a face-to-face full thorough consultation which usually takes around 60-90 minutes.
Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy - Working Together
HYPNOSIS – to get a person relaxed enough to access their subconscious mind, although hypnosis has been described in lots of different ways, one simpler term that is used is ‘Hypnosis is a state wherein the subconscious and conscious parts of the mind begin to work on the same concept, at the same time without conflict. This is a major part of hypnotherapy, that will allow the therapist to relax the client enough to access the subconscious mind.
HYPNOTHERAPY – is what we apply once the client is in a hypnotic state as hypnotherapy is the practice of hypnosis for therapeutic purposes. Hypnotherapy allows the therapist to talk to the subconscious mind to allow and make changes allowing us to access our deeper-rooted emotional beliefs so that we can change a thought process. However, this will only happen if the client is willing to change a thought pattern.
I incorporate many tools and techniques including:
EFT - Emotional Freedom Technique
CBH -Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy
NLP - Neuro-Linguistic Programming
And many other tools, skills, and techniques to help tackle anxiety face-on. I believe in educating my clients on anxiety what can we learn from it and how they can become friends with it, find strength in it, and grow from it.
I always tell my clients that we only grow from the things that challenge us in life, that is where your strength is, right there!
Hypnotherapy for weight loss
Hypnosis for weight loss can be an effective method in challenging these mindsets and moments of temptation, helping you to live a healthier life, and resulting in a better relationship with food.
I provide education, facts, and handouts, and practice positive thinking and positive doing. I also provide my clients with free hypnosis audios to listen to in between each session. I also include many aspects of therapy that have been put together from years of work and expertise to bring you this 4 session program called Slim via Hypnosis.
The aim of hypnotherapy for weight loss is to make you feel confident about your body, change negative thoughts about eating, create a better healthier relationship with food and help you lose weight responsibly and realistically without impacting your emotional and physical well-being.
