” Just like the tree’s shed their autumn leaves that no longer serve them - we too as humans can do the same with our old out of date emotions and behaviours”

I am able to continue working face to face as my practice allows me to do so safely, but I have decided that with the new variant strain of COVID-19 I can work safer with clients online for their therapy sessions. I feel it is important to keep my clients safe and myself.

If you would like to book a session with me for online therapy, then please contact me here, or you can call or text me on:

Looking forward to working with you, to help you live the best life you so deserve.

Hello and welcome to iHypnosis Therapy Essex - based in Basildon. Essex

My name is Jodine Downham. DHP and I am a fully qualified professional Clinical Hypnotherapist, Psychotherapist, and Hypnoanalyst in the Basildon, Essex area.

I am also a Certified Slim via Hypnosis Practioner.

My passion is to enable my clients to have a positive mindset, so they can live the best possible life that they desire and deserve. I support and provide my clients with the appropriate type of therapy tailored to their needs in order to make the changes they want to make.

I decided to train as a Clinical Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapist as I have always been passionate about helping others. I previously worked for the NHS as a health care assistant and although I could not offer patients much help physically, I felt that I could help them to cope better with the right attitude and the right frame of mind to help them deal with their complex conditions better. This enabled them to feel more in control of their lives by having the right tools and skills to be able to manage the anxiety and the worry of living with their illnesses.

This made me think about how much I really wanted to help people to be able to cope better in life by dealing with various emotional problems and mental health issues. I made the decision and enrolled in one of the most highly respected courses in Essex, at K.I.C.H Hypnotherapy training college in Medway Kent. This was established by the wonderful and very successful Mr. Terence Watts and the very best tutors which have enabled me with the best knowledge and skills in becoming a professional practitioner in clinical hypnotherapy, psychotherapy, and hypnoanalysis.

My clients come to me with so many negative emotions and insecurities about themselves and they feel that they can't move forwards, but even after the first session, my clients leave feeling positive and excited for the future, something they hadn’t felt in a long long time. Clients come to see me because they want to feel better, they want to learn more, think faster, feel less emotional pain, lose weight, stop those unhealthy habits, change their emotional responses to various situations in their lives, and generally live a better life!

My job is very rewarding as I get to see my clients shift into a much more positive and fulfilling life, and a much better happier future, It is truly life-changing is how it's described by people who have experienced clinical hypnotherapy.

My hypnotherapy practice is based in Basildon, Essex, and is in a great location that is within easy reach of Laindon, Billericay, Brentwood, Thurrock, Benfleet, Chelmsford, and Southend.

I cover all areas in this region, and I am also fully insured and fully accredited. My practice offers ample FREE easy access parking, and I provide my clients with a calm, peaceful, safe, and confidential environment always.

(Please note that I am a fully qualified, fully insured, and a fully accredited Clinical Hypnotherapist, Psychotherapist, and Hypno-analyst)

Online session's available only during 3rd Lockdown - January 2021

I am currently only working online during these difficult times, and they are proving to be just as effective and still produce great results for my clients. The sessions are still 1 hour long and a lot of my clients are appreciating the benefits of online therapy.

For example:

* Childcare is not needed (may need to with younger children of course)
* You can even stay in your PJ's if you wish!
* Sessions are carried out in the familiar surroundings of your own home
* Save on fuel/no travel expenses
* It takes very little organisation
* You can choose times and dates which fit into your day
* No need to plan for extra time for the journey
* You can still have therapy during the COVID-19 lockdown

You can see there are many benefits to still having therapy, especially during these stressful and uncertain times as we can feel very isolated and alone, so it’s so important to talk to friends and family on the phone, or online also. Therapy can help with many things including relaxation techniques, anxiety, panic attacks, and just general worry and stress of the current situation amongst other anxieties that were there before COVID-19. So, it's so important to just take yourself away for some time that’s just for you, especially if you have children and finding it difficult to cope with homeschooling and keeping them entertained.

The requirement's for online therapy:

Laptop, PC, or tablet, a set of headphones with a mic built-in which is not a necessity as you can still have therapy without headphones. Most importantly you must have a good WIFI connection, even better if you can have the therapy sessions in a good strong area in your home where you know that the WIFI is good. A good chair is also needed, nothing flash, or just sitting up on your bed with your head resting back under some pillows is perfect, it is about what feels comfortable to you.

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.e. fears/phobias, habits, anxiety, stress, smoking, sexual dysfunction, help improve sleep, relationship issues, weight issues, and much more and can work, much faster than counseling, resulting in lasting results.

ABOUT ME . string


Losing weight can be a difficult process - and it's not made any easier by the conflicting and often dangerous advice out there in the world today. We are constantly bombarded with TV programs, advertising, and social media feed full of pictures of food, and the presence of these can make the temptation to steer away from healthy or intuitive eating very strong.

Then there are weight loss pills and other commercial weight-reducing programs that focus on restricting what you eat, rather than considering how you eat, or what you think about the food you are putting into your body. It's no surprise to have developed certain negative mindsets around what we eat.

Hypnosis for weight loss can be an effective method in challenging these mindsets and moments of temptation, helping you to live a healthier life, resulting in a better relationship with food.

Slim via Hypnosis is an amazing 4 x session complete weight loss/healthy lifestyle programme that consists of the key elements that really help you to stay focused, and this is where hypnotherapy may help you to change that mindset.

Plus education, facts, handouts, NLP, suggestion work, positive thinking, 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 X SESSION PROGRAMME called Slim via Hypnosis.

So if you're ready to change old habits around food then I’d love to hear from you.

The aim of hypnotherapy for weight loss is to make you feel confident about your body, change negative thoughts about eating, and help you lose weight responsibly, without impacting your emotional well-being. By targeting the unconscious mind with powerful suggestion techniques, a hypnotherapist can help you develop a positive relationship with food and exercise, which is key to healthy weight loss and long-term weight management.
