Hand in Hand therapy is a counselling and Hypnotherapy service.

I am Jenny, I graduated Derby University in 2004 with Ba(hons) in Creative Expressive therapy. I have worked in various settings over the years offering creative expressive workshops, including inclusion units, hospitals and schools. I volunteered for Childline before deciding to study for a Diploma in Psychotherapy Counselling, during this course I studied Hypnotherapy and experienced the benefits it has to offer. I went on to study further so I could offer hypnotherapy as part of my practice.

I am integrative psychotherapist which means I draw upon a range of different models that will best suit you and your needs. I specialise in working with young people and children as well as groups and workshops.


Hypnotherapy works by creating a new cognitive path. Over time our subconscious has stored experiences and emotions that have gone on to form unhelpful habits, behaviors and emotions. Together we can challenge these distortions and bring about positive suggestions to make positive changes. I work with adults as well as young people looking to make changes. This could be getting over a phobia, stopping smoking, support with weight loss, sports performance, stress, anxiety and anxiety separation.

I have been working with young people in a range of settings for a number of years using an integrative approach. I work in a creative way, using arts therapies, designed to allow children and young people to communicate in ways that come most naturally to them, to process what they have experienced and help express emotions that they may have difficulty expressing right now.
