Testimonials About JF Hypnotherapy


“First I would like to thank you for working with our boy that has ARFID.  Jackie talked to our boy to get to know him and did trust exercises until he felt he wasn’t a stranger.

He was relaxed through the Hypnotherapy and seemed excited for the bit that came next.  When it came to try different foods he had chosen, he was not scared and he tried them all without being anxious or showing signs of panic.

He tried all the foods with ease and fell completely in love with oranges. We still have setbacks but Jackie made us a sound recording that he listens to once a week (sometimes more) and he comes back to the place where he isn’t panicking when he tries new things. It might seem like baby steps for others but for us it is huge leaps.

Thank you again Jackie ”

Horse Jumping

“Hi Jackie,

just wanted to say I had a jumping lesson last night and it went so well.  My horse didn’t hesitate at a single fence and I didn’t feel nervous at any point. ”

I can safely say it’s worked and it is all thanks to you. ”

Interview Nerves

“Interview went well I reckon, felt quite calm, a few deep breaths sorted me right out.  Won’t hear back from them for a few days but even so, you have helped me enormously and I cannot thank you enough. The relaxation recordings are great.

I have been offered the job this morning.  I can’t thank you enough for all your help either in person or through my headphones.

Delighted, chuffed and grateful for your support.  ”

S.P East Lothian


“I have to say, I’ve simply felt a lot better in the last week.  It’s almost as if I’ve been released from anchors that were holding me down, or weeds that were choking me and stopping me from breathing.

Remember the revolving door I was on.  It is now as if the door has been stopped and I’ve been allowed to step through.  I can look back at those memories without them stopping me in my tracks.

I feel free.  Memories will always be there but now seem boxed. Also asked my wife what she sees in a week, she says it’s been a huge positive difference.  More like me.  That says it all. Sorry for the long message but thanks.

Meeting you may turn out to be one of the most important things I have ever done. ”

Spider Phobia

“Jackie helped me with a really awful fear of spiders.  I have been gradually able to face this fear through her encouragement and coaching.  Been able to deal with smaller spiders but yesterday I picked up an enormous one and put it outside still alive.

This was a major step for me.  Previously I would have suffered a cold sweat and palpitations at the mere thought of doing this. Jackie is so lovely and makes you feel at ease.

I would highly recommend her services.  Thank you Jackie. ”

Travel Anxiety

“I have been a nervous traveller for 30 years.  Made an appointment with Jackie and have had a huge grin on  my face all weekend visiting my daughter in London.

First time travelling on my own.  I couldn’t have done it without Jackie’s help.”

J.G East Lothian

Driving Anxiety

“Don’t know what you’ve done but today I’ve driven A1 and bypass around 70 overtaking no problem.   Then drove the road to Moffat on M74 for a couple of junctions.

Bit nervous on that section but able to do overtaking and keep up with traffic no problem.  Thanks so much. ”

Kayak Anxiety

“Just wanted to give you some feedback from my kayaking weekend.  I think the photos I have attached says it all and the feedback I got at the end of the course from our coach was “Mags, you are on fire” I felt released enough from anxiety to paddle at my potential for the first time in ages.

Thank you very much Jackie. ”

Balloon Phobia

“So on Sunday I had the party for work.   I drove there quite nervous as I didn’t know  what to expect.  As I walked in it was a tiny little livingroom filled with balloons.  Not rubbish ones, proper good quality, massive balloons that you know would make a huge noise if they burst.

But surprisingly I didn’t flip out.  The kids all gradually arrived and were playing with them as I set up.   I can’t say I enjoyed it but I wasn’t feeling sick with nerves or fuzzy head.

I can safely say that’s a huge result.  I could focus on my work and not panic.  I even played with an older kid with one for a bit.

So THANK YOU.  Delighted is an understatement. ”

Shoulder Pain

“Many thanks Jackie for your superb treatment of hypnotherapy on my long standing shoulder pain – which has left me completely pain free for the first time in ages.

I am still free of pain and much calmer than before.

I would highly recommend you to others with ongoing issues to experience the amazing after effects of your hypnotherapy.”

Fear of Heights

“Thank you Jackie for your amazing work of hypnotherapy with me before going on our holiday of a lifetime to New Zealand.

My phobia and fears of so many things i.e heights, water, reptiles to name but a few were overcome by your calming input.
Also the confidence building you did with me before bowling in the national finals. I could not have done without your help.

I would recommend hypnotherapy with Jackie to anyone with any problem. She’s amazing.”

J.M East Lothian

Chronic Pain

“After suffering from chronic pain for several years, I went to see Jackie. The difference was amazing as she took away my constant nagging pain.

She also gave me advice on how to deal with any further pains that might occur.

I would highly recommend going to see Jackie if you have any ongoing pain issues.”

Fear of Wasps

“I had a phobia of wasps for as long as I can remember which seemed to be getting more intense with each year that passed. It actually got so bad that, wherever possible, I would avoid being outdoors at all in warmer weather.

After having my son 2 years ago, the phobia became more apparent as it started to affect the things I longed to do with him. Simple things like a nice walk with the pram would terrify me.

I finally decided enough was enough and that is when I contacted Jackie. Although I had no idea what to expect, I went along with an open mind and was willing to try anything!

Jackie is such a nice woman and instantly made me feel at ease in her company. She was extremely patient and understanding. After our session, I can hand on heart say I felt like a massive weight had been lifted.

Already I am noticing a significant change in my life. The real proof of the results was when I was recently at a garden party where a wasp decided to buzz around my head for a while. In the past, I’d have felt panicky, breathless and would need to go straight indoors. I’m amazed to say I stayed right where I was, never moved and went on to enjoy the party without worrying.

Thank you Jackie!”

Fear of Spiders

“No more freaking! Have managed to pick up a live spider with a tissue and drop down a toilet! No overwhelming panic, very calm! Also watched a feature about spiders on TV, would never have been able to do this.

You’ve worked wonders. Thank you so much for chasing out my demons!!”

Carole Edinburgh

Pain Removal

“Both my husband and I had some sessions with Jackie; my husband for back pain and me for knee pain. My husband has had severe back pain for over 20 years and after the meeting with Jackie, this is the best his back has felt for many years.

I have had knee pain since January this year, and it’s totally amazing to be more or less pain free after my session with her.

Jackie will make you feel relaxed and at ease and, best of all, free of pain – so, go on, give it a try. You won’t regret it!!”

Old Pain to Go

“After suffering upper back pain for the best part of 18 years carrying twin girls it felt like I was carrying a sack of potatoes around.. 4 years ago this pain became unbearable to the point even after X-rays MRI scans, lots of different medications from gabapentine, 30/500 co codamol, tramadol plus slow release 60mg dihydrocodeine.

3 weeks ago the doctors recommended morphine which I refused because YES I do still want to be able to work!! I was a bit sceptical about the OLD PAIN to go which my sister Sarah Simpson recommended as I have had weekly deep muscle massages for years.. however when you suffer on a daily basis you will try absolutely anything .

I must say I didn’t walk away thinking a miracle had happened but over the period of just 1 week I have absolutely NO tight band across my back at all, NO pain whatsoever and it’s that good I’m up at this time in the morning doing all my housework before I even go to my own work .

I don’t want to put anyone off their breakfast reading this but you may have got bored with my chat already but for what it’s worth I have also suffered a very lazy bowel since abusing laxatives through my teenage years ( once a month ) was regular for me but now I’m on the toilet every day like clockwork like a normal person.

never been so happy to have met Jackie.. she has been a godsend.”
