Jennifer started her career in the NHS working as a Midwife for seven years, then adding Contraceptive and Sexual Health Nursing role to her responsibilities for the remainder of her 12 year public sector career. Providing care in and around West Lancashire as a Midwife and a Family Planning Nurse for clients and families of all ages and backgrounds.

After starting a family of her own and successfully using Hypnobirthing techniques for the births of her own babies, Jennifer retrained, after leaving the NHS, with KG Hypnobirthing and ran her own independent Hypnobirthing business for a number of years adding Breast feeding peer support to her belt and setting up a local support group in the community setting.

The Hypnobirthing ignited a second passion in Jen, and although Jen had experienced first-hand the effects of hypnosis techniques prior to pregnancy she felt that there was more to know and wanted to add hypnotherapy to her qualification so that she could help her clients more. The clients who came to Jen often asked if she could help with phobias and pre existing anxiety and low mood prior to pregnancy. It seemed a natural progression after running a successful Hypnobirthing business for number of years, to develop her skills as a Clinical Hypnotherapist. Jen was one of the first to graduate at CPHT Liverpool, going on to establish her busy Hypnotherapy clinic providing treatments for clients in West Lancashire, Merseyside and nationally both in person and online. Utilising her skills developed in the public sector to help clients with a diverse set of needs from all ages.

Jen chose CPHT as she liked the balance between practical and theoretical learning the course offered over the duration of the training. Jen particularly enjoys the Solution Focused approach which works so well and the changes which come about in the individual clients are wonderful to witness over the relatively short amount of time that the clients come for therapy.

Having studied with CPHT for her Hypnotherapy in Practice Diploma so much, Jen started her Advanced Hypnotherapy Diploma with CPHT. She is now enjoying her role as Senior tutor at CPHT Chester and is thrilled to be teaching the fascinating subject of Solution Focused Hypnotherapy to her new students.
When not running a busy clinic, Jen loves to walk the family dog, Holly, along the beautiful local footpaths which surround her home while sporting one of her own home knit bobble hats, listening to podcasts and audio books, enjoy spot of photography, baking, and warming up in front of a log fire with a hot chocolate with her young family.
