Bowen Therapy is a gentle holistic treatment using fingers and thumbs, to make a series of precise rolling - type moves. This creates a vibration, helping to relieve tension and reduce pain.
There are short breaks between the moves to allow the body to respond to the moves, and to make subtle changes if the body chooses to. There is no forcing the body into an outcome. Bowen makes a suggestion to the body to re- balance itself.
The treatment is suitable for all ages.
The Bowen Technique was developed in Australia in the 1950s by Thomas Ambrose Bowen, who used it on people, racehorses and greyhounds, with astounding results.
Symptoms which have been reported to respond well to the Bowen Technique
Headaches: Hay Fever: Jaw Problems Ear Problems: Neck/Shoulder and Back Problems: Bronchial Problems: Digestive Problems: Tennis Elbow: Carpal Tunnel: Menstrual/Fertility Problems: Pelvic Pain: Sciatica: Groin/Hamstring Strain: Knee/Ankle Problems.

I am an experienced counsellor having seen people for individual sessions for many years since I qualified in 2006.
I concentrate on helping adults who are experiencing any mental difficulty. I have worked with the well-known conditions such as anxiety, depression, eating disorders, self-harm, and anger management. I note that a common theme that people bring is having difficulties with relationships and I am accustomed to working with this. I also work with issues that start by being vague such as: not knowing where I am going in life and not feeling content with life as it is.
I work with adults (18+) who attend as individuals. I will see couples though I prefer to see one partner and that helps heal the relationship.
When you make an enquiry by telephone or by email, please expect me to call you for a brief chat to check your interest and when you can attend for a first meeting. The first meeting allows us to introduce ourselves and I expect to make some progress even at that stage.
Sessions are 55 minutes and my style of work is to listen for a while, usually 20 minutes. Then I usually spot an avenue that we may explore to your advantage. We may focus on this for a while and the remainder of the time is spent chatting amongst ourselves to review what we have found. In other words, I work alongside you rather than sit there silently.
I often start with 3 sessions to see where this takes us. The next step will be to choose one of the following options:
My name is Joanne Britton I am a Psychodynamic Counsellor with over 12 years’ experience working with adults, families and young adults. I believe Counselling and Self Development can be the greatest gift we give ourselves. I work in an eclectic way which means I use a variety of techniques/modalities to ensure that the therapy suits you – as I believe we are all unique and one size does not fit all.
During your Counselling session you will have the opportunity to discuss any issues that may be troubling you with a trained professional in a confidential setting. People seek counselling for a variety of reasons. You do not have to be in crisis to choose to have counselling, you may just be experiencing feelings of dissatisfaction with life. Sometimes people are clear about what is troubling them but just need support and clarity to help them through a difficult period, on other occasion's people recognise that they keep repeating the same destructive patterns in life and are keen to explore the contributing factors in therapy.
I offer a range of services including Counselling and Group Therapy for the following.
I work with clients on both a long term and short-term basis. Therapy sessions are usually weekly on an agreed date and venue and sessions last for 60 minutes.
In your first session you will have the opportunity to explain why you have come to counselling at this particular time in your life and to ask questions about how counselling can support you in your current difficulties.

If you are told that you have unexplained infertility or infertility with a cause you may be feeling lost, confused and alone. You may be trying to be strong and hiding how you feel; it can take over your life. Hypnotherapy can support you to cope with any physical symptoms you may be experiencing and it promotes deep relaxation in your mind and body.
Hypnotherapy can support you to deal with your feelings and any fears you have. You may have repressed emotions or memories affecting your fertility or beliefs held in your subconscious mind holding you back and regression work can be carried out to help you release these feelings helping you to move forward and to take back control over your life. Stress can dramatically affect fertility and Hypnosis supports you to deeply relax. You cannot be forced under hypnosis and you remain in complete control. You can attend as a couple or alone. I also provide you with hypnotherapy recordings for you to listen to regularly.
Using hypnotherapy whilst undergoing IVF treatment has been shown to increase the success rate to over 50%! Studies have also shown that there is a positive influence through hypnotic suggestion on bodily functions such as blood pressure and heart rate, and that hypnosis has been shown to impact the hypothalamus in the brain and influence the release of hormones.
When I was told that I had unexplained fertility I felt very alone and confused about what would happen and I felt very stressed by all the investigations and devastated by two miscarriages. I wish I had known about this back then.
I am passionate about supporting you using hypnotherapy at any stage of your fertility investigations or treatments or if you are at the stage of wanting to move on with your life after finishing investigations.
A free initial phone consultation is available over the telephone.

I use the Hypnobirth programme produced by ‘Fertility2birth’; it is an amazing programme consisting of individual sessions of three, two hour sessions with you and your birth partner (or on your own) in which you learn the tools to help you have a relaxed and controlled birth. This is a whole birth education programme which is advocated by midwives.
Ideally the first session is held when you are about 30 weeks pregnant then at 32 weeks and then 34 weeks so that you have time to practice the techniques and listen to the hypnosis recordings.
Using Hypnosis to support you in labour has been researched and found to reduce the length of the first stage of labour from 50 to 37 minutes.
This programme aims to remove all of the fears associated with birth. It empowers you and your birthing partner to have control and confidence to make choices about the birth you really want and it gives your birthing partner a clear supportive role that is practised beforehand.
Clinical research has shown that relaxed, positive and confident mothers have better birth outcomes. During the programme you learn how to deeply relax using hypnosis which you may wish to use during labour. Under hypnosis you can relax and think and have full control of your body. If you choose not to use the hypnosis there is a lot more in the program to empower you for the birth you wish to experience.
Birth is a natural process but if you are anxious or scared during labour your body goes into the ‘Fight or Flight’ response which means that your body sends your blood supply to prepare your body to run or fight and it practically shuts down your reproductive area. You will learn what the body’s response is and how to take control of it. It is also important to remember that your baby is sensing all that you do and what you take into your body, including any drugs you take during labour. Using this Hypnobirth program and hypnosis the chances of you needing any medical intervention including pain relief can be reduced dramatically, also meaning that the healing time of your body is increased and your baby can be born without any drugs in their system. If for some reason your birth does not go to plan this programme empowers and prepares you to continue feeling calm and in control.
This program includes a copy of notes for you at each session and hypnosis scripts for your birthing partner to read to you and any hypnosis recordings.
I hold a Diploma in Hypnotherapy and I am a qualified Fertility 2 Birth practitioner and an Energy 4 Life Wellness Coach. I am passionate about supporting and empowering women and their birthing partners to have the most positive birth experience possible through Hypnobirthing and hypnosis.

Our present beliefs, habits, mannerisms and thought patterns are the result of past ‘programming’ into our subconscious mind from our parents, family members, teachers and various other sources. Fear and our beliefs can hold us back in life from living the life we want and feeling happy. Hypnotherapy can help you to positively move forward.
The subconscious mind holds information, our emotions and our creativity; it makes up approximately 90% of our mind (the conscious mind being the rest). It can be the source of many of our problems and it is also a huge reservoir of OUR UNRECOGNISED POTENTIAL which can be tapped into through hypnotherapy. The subconscious mind is resistant to change because once it learns something, it tends to resist change.
Hypnotherapy is a skilled form of communication used under hypnosis that can support you to make your desired positive changes. You cannot be forced under hypnosis and you can still resist any suggestion made under hypnosis; it is described as deeply relaxing.
Hypnotherapy can be used for many issues. Here are some that I can support you with;
Anxiety (specific) Stress / Burn out
Sleep Weight Loss
Habits Stop Smoking
Physical Health issues Pain
Deep relaxation Nerves / Performance
Irritable Bowel Syndrome Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Law of Attraction Relationship issues
