Do you feel trapped or stuck?

Are you stuck in a rut, held back by limited beliefs or by a problem or obstacle? Often obstacles appear to be so big that it can seem hopeless to try to change.

Do you want to improve or change something in your life but don’t quite know how to do it or afraid that it will be too difficult?

Examples of obstacles that hold us back include problems with alcohol, drugs, gambling, smoking, anxiety, stress, fears, phobias, lack of confidence or motivation, depression, over-thinking, weight problems, relationship problems, negative thoughts, break ups, prolonged bereavement, post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), unpleasant memories, anger issues and bad habits. The list goes on.  Often clients have a combination of problems.

Have you tried to change or improve things before and failed?  If the answer is yes, then it may be time to take a different approach.

You CAN have a better life

It's true!  If you have had enough of your problem and are ready to make a positive change then contact me today to book your free initial telephone consultation.

I know from first hand experience what it is like to feel 'trapped' by a problem.  I also know how truly wonderful it feels to be free from it and put the problem firmly in the history books.  My experiences have inspired me to want to help you to overcome your own problems.

As each of us are unique individuals, we arrive at whatever obstacle or problem in our lives via a unique journey. As such, the journey to a positive and lasting change will be unique. We each see and experience things in a slightly different way.

For example, if there are several people at a party, each person will experience it slightly differently. Someone who is shy will experience the party very differently to someone who is more outgoing. Several other factors would make the experience different for each including, their taste in music, who they were with, what they were drinking or eating, how they were feeling and also their past experiences.  Some would say the party was great whereas another person at the very same party could be experiencing their worst nightmare.

As we are all different, a method of change that works well for one person will not necessarily work as well for you.  For that reason I use a number different approaches dependent on the individual.

My methods

My methods include Coaching, Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP™) and Hypnotherapy.

Coaching is a powerful method of facilitating change and supporting people to help them reach their full potential. It can focus on specific personal or professional goals, or on other areas of life.

NLP™ is ‘what it says on the tin’ –programming the mind and learning to run our own brains. We learn things very easily, including negative things. These behaviours become automatic as we repeat them. My method can help you to ‘unlearn’, or reprogram, certain unhelpful habits and behaviours.  Your own sort of personal upgrade!

Hypnotherapy is a form of deep relaxation (not sleep) and can be used to help you gain control over undesired behaviours or problems and to introduce new more desirable behaviours. It is important to know that although you're more open to suggestion during hypnotherapy, you maintain control .

About me

My name is Jo Dealey and I am passionate about helping people to improve their lives, overcome obstacles and to get on and enjoy themselves. I offer a personalised and discreet program to help you overcome problems.

I first studied NLP™ as a way to help myself overcome a few of my own problems.  Having worked within the corporate world for over 24 years as a senior manager leading high performance teams within corporate environments I gained an excellent insight into the many issues that people face.  Once I discovered NLP,  the changes were incredible!  Not only was my life changing for the better but I was also excited to find that I could help those around me.

I continued to study with Richard Bandler, the co-founder of NLP™, Paul McKenna, John La Valle and June O'Driscoll.  I am now an accredited executive, life and business coach, a licensed master practitioner of NLP™ and a professional & clinical hypnotherapist.  I have found the techniques, particularly when combined with my own experiences, to be extremely effective with overcoming numerous problems and addictions.

It has transformed my life. Now I want to help you to change your life for the better.


"After several years of binge drinking, when I went to see Jo I was at my lowest point. After a short time with Jo, I found I was able to enjoy a social drink with friends (something I hadn't been able to do for a very long time) - no more sitting alone at home, drinking to excess to numb my pain. Without Jo's help, I don't know what would have become of my life. I highly recommend her.  Thank you Jo." - Theresa, Essex


"I had been suffering from stress/anxiety attacks in the form of occasional but severe stomach and back pains for five years before I made contact with Jo. Originally diagnosed as a gall bladder issue, I had undergone surgery initially to remove my gall bladder. However, once the pains returned soon after the surgery, and specifically as soon as I returned to work, it became clear that the issue was related to stress. Various medications did nothing to improve matters. Two six-week courses of counselling followed but had no effect, before I bit the bullet and contacted Jo with a view to trying hypnotherapy. It was the best decision I could have taken.

The difficulties of the previous five years had caused significant changes to my normal life, including changes to my work pattern and not travelling far from home if I was going out alone. Now, having completed a course of hypnotherapy and life-coaching with Jo, I am in the best place I have been mentally for years. The techniques I have been taught by Jo have been put to good use and they work; and my entire mindset is different now from how it was previously. In addition, some long-held difficult memories relating to a personal issue I encountered many years ago have been addressed and overcome. It’s time to move on and leave that all in the past.

I know other people who suffer from stress - most, like mine, related to work - and I have recommended Jo to some of these people. Any doubts I had at the outset about the use of hypnotherapy have been completely eradicated, and I would have no hesitation in recommending Jo to anybody who is suffering stress or anxiety-related difficulties in their life."

"Jo helped me conquer my fear of open water swimming and helped me achieve my goal of completing my first Olympic distance triathlon.  With Jo's help I was able to turn open water swimming into a pleasurable experience by working on breathing techniques and visualisation and positive mantras. Previously my fear was so great that I really thought I wouldn't get through the swim. I'm over the moon to have now achieved my goal and can now continue to enjoy open water swimming. Thank you Jo! " L.iz - London E11


"I had been smoking for 35 years and had previously been to two different hypnotherapists to stop – neither of which worked.  I have known Jo for a while and she had suggested that I try hypnotherapy with her to help me to stop smoking.

Having successfully used self-hypnosis on myself for other problems I wasn’t sceptical about hypnosis and therefore agreed. After a three-hour hypnotherapy session with Jo (she told me to continue smoking right up to the time of the session as well!) I have not had a cigarette or felt the need for one either. That was six months ago.

Not only do I now save money by not buying cigarettes, I have also gained time during the day by not going outside to just have a smoke. I am also told that I smell so much better (as do my clothes). I can also run now without getting out of breath!

I would happily recommend Jo to anyone who is finding it difficult to stop smoking on their own as she has helped me no end." Seān H.- Suffolk


"Having tried conventional therapy to try and combat anxiety and panic-related issues for some considerable months to no avail, I found Jo and was struck by the immediacy of relief and change which she induced both through a combination of NLP and hypnotherapy. She has an incredible ability to put you at ease, help you clearly identify and work through your difficulties and for me personally discover a renewed positivity for life and its direction, so much so, I’m now looking into NLP for my own personal development ! I found Jo’s approach very personal, empathetic, supportive and understanding and it felt like she went above and beyond that that I had previously experienced to ensure my return to my previously happy and confident self !  I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Jo, thank you for all that you have done for me!"

"Before meeting Jo, I was suffering with several anxiety-induced issues including; feeling unable to return to activities (gymnastics and contortion) which I love (which I had to take a few months off of due to illness), feeling anxious about applying for jobs and issues around food. I looked into hypnotherapy as I felt that these issues were too deep in my unconscious mind to just "get over" and I came across Jo.  She helped me to banish any negative voices in my head that were telling that I was not capable of this or that and that I should not eat certain things.  She also coached me through the job application and interview process. I am now happy to report that I have a job in a field that I am passionate about, I am back doing my gymnastics and contortion (and loving them!) and I'm feeling more relaxed around food.  Most importantly, I am in a much happier
place and people are noticing the difference. I could not have done it without her. I highly recommend." - C.O. - London


"Before I met Jo, I had PTSD and I felt like I was stuck in a rut.  Jo helped to process the past, and I learnt techniques to deal with negative and unhealthy thoughts.  I was so used to thinking in an unhealthy way, and she helped me to gain control of my thoughts and my life again.  I am now confident and happy, I am so much stronger than I have ever been, I have my life back again. She helped to heal me and my life is so much healthier, calmer and beautiful.  Thank you, Jo."

"Jo really understands your situation in a personal way, she really gets to the nub, the route cause of your problems, and works with you in a firm yet compassionate manner to set you on the right path to fulfil your goals.  Thanks Jo" - John B, Luton


"Before meeting Jo, myself and my husband had been trying for a family for years and we had already tried a number of medical and holistic therapies that hadn't given us success. We were starting to give up hope.

I'd heard hypnotherapy was successful and wanted to give it a try.  I researched and called a few different hypnotherapists and I instantly felt a good feeling from Jo.   Her enthusiasm and instant belief that she could help gave me such a boost. 

After our first session I noticed changes in my attitude and feelings.  I felt more confident and happier with my life, like I'd got the old me back.

Few months passed and I fell pregnant.  We are over the moon with happiness.

Thanks Jo, you helped me to believe and it worked."  - MM, London


" Thanks to Jo I have my dream job.  For years I have suffered with interview nerves.  But I attended a couple of sessions with Jo and she gave me the confidence and calmness that I needed with stressful interview situations.  As a result I not only have my dream job but I also have the tools to deal with any similar challenges that life might put in my way."  - Mari, London


" I only had one session with Jo.  That's all that it took!  I  suffered with a fear and Jo was able to pin point my problem and deal with it in such a caring, calm way!  It took me 10 years to try to deal with this fear but it only took an hour of Jo's time and now I'm back on track.  Jo was amazing and I would highly recommend her to anyone."  - Laura, London


"I had stress-induced eczema for three years.  Although my G.P. was very supportive, referring me to two dermatologists who provided some initial relief in the condition. However, the condition persisted arrhythmically and could not be shaken off. After a few sessions with Jo, I managed to improve my skin to the point that I was no longer reliant on prescription preparations; people have commented on my improved skin tone. 

Following on from the above, I am pleased to report that I haven’t needed to put any cream on my hands for weeks now.  Also, and equally importantly, I have become more focussed and more confident socially. My dance teacher and sports coach say that I’ve made massive improvements in the New Year. I now realize that this is mainly due to the positive mental attitudes instilled by Jo. Therefore, I have no hesitation in recommending Jo to anyone who needs help in any type of situation which can be addressed by her advice ." David, London


"I was anxious and overactive in everyday life situations that didn’t warrant the levels of anxiety I felt or the behaviour I would display. The sessions helped by giving me techniques which I could use to control, analyse and then re-think the way I was feeling. They also helped me to relax which is something I rarely do. Overall I now feel that I am much more in control of my anxiety with a few simple techniques I am able to take control of the way I feel on a day to day basis. "– MT, Essex


"After my very first session with Jo I found that my outlook towards alcohol completely changed. I came to realise that I could enjoy myself much more without the need to binge drink and currently apply the same train of thought to many aspects of my life. As a result I have now seen a huge improvement in both my physical and mental health so am eternally grateful. I would certainly recommend this to anyone who wishes to take back control in their lives."

- Daniel, London


"The therapy helped in ways I could not have imagined.  It helped me to find peace and grace throughout my painful and raw grieving process."  - Arlette, London


"My life is finally back on track thanks to Jo. Without her I don't know if I would still be alive today. Thank you." - Deborah, Surrey


"I was struggling with a particular issue that was beginning to affect my life on a daily basis – I cannot recommend Jo enough as after consultation I was able to assess the reasons behind the behaviour and have managed to cope with and in-fact ‘get over’ these issues. Once again, recommended!" - Christopher, London


"I had quite literally hit rock bottom for the second time in five years. Having heard it all from various councillors and help groups, someone recommended Jo to me. I have to say that from the first meeting I felt that I had found someone with empathy for how I felt.  Jo allowed me to talk, but didn't let me spill everything out all in one go, which a lot of councillors do and sometimes it leaves you feeling " what was the actual problem in the first place"? We take one problem at a time and work on it. I would also like to say that I felt so at ease with someone who I know has been there, seen it and done it." - Julie, Essex
