Never listen to hypnosis audios whilst driving or operating machinery and always choose a safe and secure environment. The audio products have been developed to assist you but can give no guarantee; you are the only one who can provide a guarantee of your own success.

As a professional, qualified, and accredited practitioner of hypnosis takes her responsibility to her clients very seriously and works towards helping clients in the best way she can. However, the advice on this website is for information purposes only. It is not designed to diagnose, treat, or substitute advice or treatment from a medical professional, a GP or Consultant. Jodine is a complementary therapist, meaning that she works alongside the work of GP's and medically trained individuals, not in replacement of.

iHypnosis Therapy Essex does not guarantee the effectiveness of treatment in any individual cases. As with everything in life there really can be no guarantees that any courses of action will solve your issues. Results may vary. This is because Jodine is not in control of the client and it is important to understand that hypnotherapy and counselling or psychotherapy services are not a 'magic pill'.

Occasionally Jodine may require clients to consult with their GP before gaining consent to undertake hypnotherapy. Although hypnosis can help alleviate symptoms, it is highly important that you first consult with your GP as we do not want to ‘mask’ symptoms that could be signaling the need for urgent medical attention.

Any therapy requires the client to be committed to change and be prepared to make the effort to make that change a reality in their own lives. If Jodine recommends listening to CD's or recordings between sessions, then, in order for the treatment to be most effective, the client should follow this advice.

Hypnotherapy is not recommended for anybody experiencing certain mental disorders or psychiatric conditions. Therefore Jodine Downham upholds the right to refuse to take a client into hypnosis if she feels it will be detrimental to their overall well being. In rare situations like these, Jodine will recommend the client go to their GP for help and advice instead.

Jodine can provide estimations regarding the session amount needed for various conditions or issues, but these act only as guidelines. Together Jodine & her client will jointly review progress from time to time.
