“Jay is truly one of the most beautiful souls I have ever met. She provided me with the tools I needed to get through some difficult times in my pregnancy and labour and was a strong and vital part of my birth support team. Jay was able to offer me a bespoke alternative to hypnobirthing which was fully personalised and combined her vast knowledge of techniques, including EFT to ensure a confident journey to motherhood and beyond.”
“Jay is a caring gentle soul. I have very much benefited from EFT sessions with Jay which have improved my life in the long term. I am very grateful and would not hesitate to recommend this excellent service.”
“I visited Jay twice in my pregnancy and on both occasions she helped me enormously. My first session with Jay was, I guess, more of a therapy session, although it never felt as formal as that would suggest. I was in the very early stages of pregnancy, following a recent miscarriage and was suffering anxiety and nightmares as a result of my recent loss. I didn’t feel I could enjoy my new pregnancy properly and felt upset a lot of the time. Jay used a combination of EFT and talk therapy to help me free those negative emotions. Afterwards I felt so much more positive and like a huge weight had been lifted.
Much later in the same pregnancy, I was beginning to think about the birth, and I visited Jay again for a fear release hypnotherapy session (to work alongside a hypnobirthing course I had taken). I was so downhearted with people saying the pain would be ‘excruciating’ and I wanted to let those negative associations go so that I could concentrate on a calm birth. Jay was so inspirational and positive about birth (and with her having given birth to five babies at that point I felt very reassured by her own experiences!). We had a wonderful, uplifting and relaxing session and I left feeling excited and optimistic about the birth. I am very happy to say that I went on to have a lovely water birth which was everything I had hoped for.
I would recommend Jay unreservedly; not only is she extremely knowledgeable on various types of therapy and childbearing, but she is also exceptionally warm and compassionate, which for me, was just as important.”
“Hi Jay. Hope you’re OK.
I came to see you earlier on in the year and had a session with you as we’ve had 3 IVF cycles all of which have been unsuccessful. It was just before we were going to try our 4th cycle and try a different clinic and wanted to share the good news that we’re having a baby!
I’m now 15 weeks pregnant and due the end of Feb. I don’t think it’s really sunk in yet!
Thanks so much though for your help with it as I’m sure it’s all made the difference. My mind sets been different, and the symbol in the sands meditation link you sent has helped so much, as well as the tapping points which I did so much to help. I wanted to share the good news with you and thank you as well! Fingers crossed with it all.

“I didn’t even think I had any issues when coming up to the birth of my 3rd child but couldn’t understand why I was just sticking my head in the sand about everything. Jay unlocked the things that were holding me back and allowed me to have the most positive birth experience yet with full belief in my body & what it was capable of.”
“What can I say….the woman is magic. She helped me through one of the most difficult times in my life (almost losing my husband whilst being 35 weeks pregnant with our third child). I would recommend her a thousand times over.”
“Jay is a true professional who is very passionate about her work. She taught me EFT for self care, which was a real eye opener”
“Having found myself a single parent only a few months before I was due my second son I needed to look at options for a birthing partner. I had heard about Doulas before and came across Jay. I immediately felt at ease in her company and about the birth of George. Jay helped me focus on the important things while being sympathetic to the emotional rollercoaster I had recently experienced and was still dealing with. We focused on the joy of bringing a new baby into the world and discussed what I wanted the birth to be like in detail to make sure I got the birthing experience I wanted. I felt in control and calm about the journey I was about to embark on. Being a mother herself and having extensive studies behind her Jay intuitively knew the level of support I required emotionally and physically throughout this journey. A mixture of hypnotherapy, massage and creating the right environment meant I had a wonderful birthing experience and one that I will think back on fondly. The thing that stood out the most to me was that I felt that I had Jay’s support 100% and that was very important to me having been let down so badly in my personal life so recently.
There is no doubt in my mind that Jay’s influence assisted in a successful VBAC, her belief in my ability and encouragement really helped me remain focused and calm when panic could have set in! An amazing experience and one I’m so pleased I got to experience
I won’t hesitate to use Jay again in the future!”
“I first met Jay when was I was going through a particularly difficult and challenging time and I can say with confidence that the help and support that she provided me with were invaluable. Alongside fantastic recommendations for physically preparing my body for pregnancy, Jay taught me that the mind and body are so closely interlinked that your mind must be on board fully to achieve a healthy conception. As well as helping with the start of my pregnancy journey Jay was also with me at the birth of my daughter which offered me immense reassurance. I simply cannot recommend Jay highly enough to anyone that needs emotional support whether it be related to fertility, pregnancy or other life issues.”
“I felt understood and the techniques taught to cope with stress and anxiety were totally helpful and I now recommend EFT to everyone!”
“After my husband suffered a serious accident and subsequent serious illness where I almost lost him. All whilst I was weeks from being due to give birth to our child, I was well and truly in denial about everything that was going on and had chosen to just stick my head in the sand rather than dealing with my anxieties.
I had one session with Jay. Her approach is simple and effective. Jay herself is calm and caring but also direct and she could tell as soon as I wasn’t being truthful about my thoughts and feelings.
Jay explained her process clearly and it totally made sense.
I dealt with anxieties I thought had been put to bed years ago and can now truly say I have closure on these things.
I really cannot thank Jay enough. After seeing her I was able to acknowledge my fears about coming so close to losing my husband and accept my anxieties about my impending birth. I left feeling like I’d turned a page on a new chapter and was able to move forward with things.
I highly recommend Jay for anyone who has suffered trauma or anxieties that they just don’t seem to be able to deal with themselves. Her services are invaluable as is she.”
“I am grateful every day that life events caused my path to cross with Jay’s. I first met her when was I was going through a particularly difficult and challenging time having lost two much wanted babies in the space of 6 months. I can say with confidence that the help and support that Jay has provided me with have been invaluable in my recovery. I am still on the journey but knowing that she is there with me gives me renewed courage and positivity and a strength I didn’t know I had in me before I met her. Jay’s immense knowledge of her subject is inspiring and leaves you with no doubt that you are in very safe and caring hands. I had no understanding or experience of hypnotherapy or tapping before meeting Jay and, I imagine like many of us, I was cynical as to the benefits or success of treatments like these. I have however been amazed by the results and the changes in me since seeing Jay. My friends and family also comment that I now have a noticeably different outlook on life.
I am now thrilled to be pregnant again and I am convinced that the time I have spent with Jay has helped me achieve this so quickly after the heartbreak of last year. Alongside fantastic recommendations for physically preparing my body for pregnancy, she has taught me that the mind and body are so closely interlinked that your mind must be on board fully to achieve a healthy conception. I am now a strong believer in this having seen the results first hand! I am reassured knowing that I will have Jay’s support and guidance during this new chapter of my life and all the different emotions it will bring with it. I look forward to drawing on her expertise in this subject and using her techniques to help me have a memorable and enjoyable birth experience.
I simply cannot recommend Jay highly enough to anyone that needs emotional support whether it be related to fertility, pregnancy or other life issues, and can guarantee that you too will be grateful that she has become a part of your life.”
“Becoming pregnant was not an easy journey for me and therefore whilst I was overjoyed to discover I was expecting our daughter the news brought with it its own worries and challenges. Hypnotherapy and EFT sessions with Jay helped me to overcome these feelings and prepare me mentally for my birth experience so that I felt relaxed and ready to have my baby. The benefits were immense and helped me to have a memorable and positive pregnancy and labour.”
“I talked to Jay about my little bit of nerves about the dentist and she talked to me about tapping and now I’m not scared anymore. And I’m really happy to go to the dentist now.
Jay told me if I don’t want to do it public I can just do this (shows tapping of thumb and index finger). I can just think of her telling me. I can control things because my nerves aren’t as worried and scared as they used to be before I learned how to tap. I can use it for friendship and school and when I can’t get to sleep or when I just feel scared when it’s dark and stuff, I can just tap and calm myself down.” (This is what a 9 year old client said in a conversation with her mother after a session regarding her anxiety about going to the dentist, following a very unpleasant experience. Mum was present during the session.)
“Thanks so much for talking to me, following an unpleasant episode with someone I came into contact with at my workplace. Although I had dealt with a lot of the fall-out that the episode resulted in (and had received outstanding support from official sources for those aspects), I didn’t even realise until we talked that self-acceptance and feelings of guilt that I had somehow allowed the situation to develop, were strong and damaging feelings that I was still suffering from.
Not only did you help me to understand this but the work that we did to break down these incorrect and deeply distressing beliefs has really helped me to both move past the episode and take some positive outcomes from it.
It was so quick and easy too and the great thing was that I didn’t have to go into detail about the whole thing, living through it all again, scoring the bad bits ever deeper into myself, which is what I have had to endure with other people I have spoken to – along with dealing with their judgements, opinions and explanations of what could have been, might have happened etc. You very quickly learn to stop talking about experiences like that because it is all you can do to survive yourself, let alone manage the well-meant but often unhelpful opinions of the world and his wife. It isn’t as though you haven’t lived through every single one of their thoughts, endlessly over and over.
As well as the instant effect of the work we did, I have noticed that as time goes on I am feeling stronger and stronger. It’s as though the episode is becoming reduced to just facts – it happened but the feelings it engendered are going. It was the feelings it left that were the problem, not the fact that it happened? It feels as though we planted a good seed which is flourishing away inside me, all on its own.
Many thanks again”
“Jay has helped me enormously with personal development and improved my well being and health as a result. Her personal approach and openness put you at ease immediately and her knowledge of her subject makes it a pleasure to work with Jay. I’d recommend her to anyone.”
