Fast, effective therapy offering a long term solution to a wide range of psychological symptoms

Beat Your Anxiety, Fears & Phobias.

Hello and welcome to my website! My name is Jo Daughters and I am a Professional Psychotherapist, Stress Management Trainer and Hypnotherapist working from Hypnotherapy Bournemouth - Anxietymy successful practice in Broadstone, Dorset. I am in easy reach from most places in Dorset and Hampshire and located just outside of Poole and Bournemouth.

I specialise in helping people just like you, overcome their anxieties, particularly social anxiety, fears and phobias including emetophobia, lack of self-esteem and confidence issues, those people feeling down, low and despondent and those feeling unable to successfully manage their weight. In essence anyone that feels somewhat powerless to overcome their symptoms, maybe feeling that their symptoms are happening to them, feeling out of control and feel that they need help from a professional like me! This list is no means an exhaustive, if your symptom is not mentioned above please click on Symptoms Treated.

After meeting you at a free initial consultation, we can together decide on a course of treatment that is most suited to your long term resolution of your symptoms. I aim to help you feel empowered by the work we do together and build new positive belief systems, build your own skills, confidence, resources, robustness and resilience so that you are able to deal with life’s ups and downs in a positive, proactive way.

When you have belief that you can change and overcome difficulties, then you are likely then to put 100% effort into making those changes happen! I love the quote of Audrey Hepburn ‘Nothing is impossible', the word itself says I’m possible!

What my clients are saying...

"I wanted to express my gratitude and happiness since my sessions with you, and thank you for the extra meeting you gave me when I had the jitters!  In fact that last meeting was almost the most important of them all as it gave me a much deeper understanding of my own well-being and, using the tools you taught me, adjusting myself accordingly day to day, week to week and month to month.  I realised then that it isn't a straight course and then the education's complete, it's an ongoing process.  I've always understood that to keep physically fit you need to train the muscles/heart etc. but it only just struck me that the brain is a muscle too, the most important one, and it constantly/periodically needs strengthening.

Aspects of me that i found hard to control previously i feel are fully in check now, and while the little devil man still pops over the shoulder every now and again I am so much better equipped to deal with it and am in a position where I mostly just smile it away :-) How good is that!

In short you can count me as a success story and I'm almost grateful to go through all the trouble in the first place as the whole process has made me stronger equipped to deal with more than the original problem, and I probably wouldn't have made a fuss otherwise.

Many thanks and my strongest gratitude, I would recommend that education to anyone, because I really think anyone in any various states of mind would benefit." Click here for more Testimonials.
