Client Journey's


“I would like to start this journey with a little background information. It was December 2016 I was 51 years old, a good five stone over weight, trapped in a situation that I felt I could not get out of and desperately unhappy. I had spent the last two years mainly at home not wanting to go out eating and trying to tell myself it didn’t matter what I looked like. I had no self-confidence and no mojo, as I described it. I knew I was going through the menopause but I was left feeling very much like I did when I had post-natal depression over twenty years ago. As the new-year dawned I wanted to do something but didn’t know where to turn, by chance when I was scrolling through Facebook I kept seeing an advert for Core You Hypnotherapy. After several days of seeing it pop up I clicked and enquired as to how much and received a lovely reply for what I considered a reasonable price. Several more weeks followed and I messaged again asking for details and was invited for a free find out about things chat. Being what I thought very brave I arranged an appointment in February and set off to meet Jacquie.

I was rather sceptical I have to say and one of the first things I asked her was would I bark like a dog or walk like a chicken if someone said a certain word, but being the ultimate professional, with just a smile she reassured me that it wouldn’t happen. Then that was when my journey began, we had a long chat about how I felt and something about Jacquie gave me the strength to open up and say exactly how I felt, how sad and lost I was and that I really felt there wasn’t any hope. At no time did she make me feel bad or as many people can do she did not judge me but offered to help me and although it all sounded too good to be true she worked with me on relaxing and we made an appointment to start the three sessions for gastric band therapy in March.

Hypnosis is not what I imagined it to be but each session gave me such a boost and each time I felt able to relax more and a bubble of happiness began. I felt able to face my challenge to lose weight but also more important to me I knew I was regaining my inner happiness, my energy, my mojo was back. The meetings were not just about being hypnotised there was advice, support and again someone who listened and understood how I felt. It is now six months into my journey I am now 52 and I could not be happier, I have lost four stone which is the target I set myself, as five sounded too big a number, and during the summer break (I work in a school) I maintained my weight, spent lots of time out with friends and have laughed such a lot just like the old days. Jacquie is still there texting support and answering any questions I have.

My journey hasn’t ended, this I hope is the rest of my life, controlling my bad food habits and at peace with who I am and how I feel. Now I am back at work I am losing weight again so maybe the five stone is possible, I cannot thank Jacquie enough she really has helped me turn my life around and importantly helped me to like myself again. Her belief in me was something that will stay with me forever, I recommend her therapy service wholehearted.”


“After a number of years feeling down and sad and wishing I could turn the clock back and tell my family who have passed away how much I loved and appreciated all they had done for me but knowing this was not possible I found comfort in food and continued punishing myself for all my shortcomings, as I perceived them. Finally, in October 2016 I made the decision that if all my Dr could offer was pills or a very long wait to see a counsellor to help me overcome my feelings, I had to sort myself out and after a friend told me how hypnosis helped her with grief counselling and weight loss I decided to try that route and after searching on line I found Core You and with the help of Jacquie my journey began.

This turned out to be the best decision I have ever made. On the first session I talked to Jacquie about all my regrets and how at 70 I felt worthless this feeling had intensified with all the hatred aimed at people my age following the referendum result in June. Jacquie listened and showed me how to bring closure to these feelings and helped me to accept that I could still have a good and happy life ahead, all I had to do was take control.

The road to how I now feel began that day. I learned how to relax and how to see food as a means to a healthy and active life and not a crutch for when I am bored of feeling sad. I no longer turn to the biscuit barrel or chocolate, but that doesn’t mean I can’t have a piece of chocolate if I want too, I just don’t eat the whole bar and I don’t have it every day. I have also learned that I can leave food on my plate when I am full. There are too many things that I have tweaked in my day to day life to name here but after my sessions with Jacquie I now feel in control of my life, I am happy, I eat what I want but in moderation and if I feel that a certain food is hard to control I have cut it out altogether and I don’t miss it.

I have now lost 18lbs that might not sound a lot but to me it is, I still have a long way to go to reach my goal but I know that I will. I use the techniques Jacquie taught me, how to relax, how to visualise my life if I follow the wrong road and how it will be if I stay on the right side and they are the tools I need to keep me feeling how I do now.

I would like to thank Jacquie for all her support and patience, for never thinking I was foolish but always offering encouragement and advice on how to overcome negative feelings. Hypnosis is a very relaxing experience you never feel uncomfortable or that you will be made to do something that is wrong or silly, it is a wonderful relaxing way to take control of your feelings. I would recommend this form of therapy and Core You Hypnotherapy to anyone who lacks self-esteem or respect for themselves and their right to their own points of view. Once you like yourself again everything else falls into place.

My mantra now is: God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference.

Thanks for everything Jacquie.”


“I had considered having hypnotherapy for quite a while, as I struggle with my weight and my health. I knew I used food to boost my mood, whether anxious, upset or tired and soon poor health and fatigue, followed by bad diet and little exercise became a vicious circle and I knew I needed help.

Jacquie is great at what she does, right from the start I felt I'd made the right choice, she made me feel comfortable and supported. She tackled the surface problems of cravings etc whilst actually addressing the underlying thought and emotions. I knew I was an emotional person, but I now realise how I hold onto negative thoughts and memories. Jacquie helped me remember the positive ones, she made me believe in myself and worked on self esteem. She gave me a goal! Now I am looking at things from a different perspective. I treat myself kindly and know 'I am worth it.

Thank you Jacquie x”
