Jess Osbourne BSCH (Assoc), PDCH

Below Jess explains how she found the path to wanting to help people overcome their fears and habits.

On leaving University (having gained an honours degree in Music) I trained as a secondary teacher specialising in music,  however due to no jobs being available, I pursued my other vocation and joined the South Western Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust.

Here I met my husband and after 8 years with the service, we decided to start a family. After the birth of my 2nd child I returned to teaching, initially teaching years 3 and 5 in a local primary school and then moving to a local independent school where I was Head of Music for 5 years and then Head of Science for a further 3 years. It was during this time that I became interested in psychology, the stress and anxiety that my students were subject to (particularly near exam time) and how I could help them through these difficult times.

As part of my research, I discovered hypnotherapy and decided that I would approach a hypnotherapist to help me with a long standing fear of heights (and to see if it worked!) After 4 sessions I was riding escalators in a local store with no fear and haven’t once looked back to those moments of flattening myself against the wall in the multi-storey car park!

From this moment on, I needed to know more and decided to enroll upon a Certificate in Clinical Hypnosis with the London College of Clinical Hypnosis.

On successful completion, I was able to practice as a Relaxation and Stress Control Practitioner and use basic hypnotherapeutic techniques. From this point, I enrolled on the Practitioner Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy which has got me to where I am today.

As you can imagine, having worked on the front line of the Ambulance Service and 12 years in teaching, I have extensive life experience; I have been there at the birth of a baby, the death of a loved one and experienced the ‘good and the bad times’ and so you can feel safe that I know how to handle different types of situations.  I am also fully insured, have a current enhanced DBS, have a first aid qualification and level 2 safeguarding certificate.

I have a cheerful and approachable manner, am empathetic and well-grounded and I would like to help you, to find the solutions to your problems through the power of hypnotherapy.


I contacted Jess to help with my fear of heights before a holiday. Jess is very professional and understanding and I felt extremely comfortable with the whole experience and found it relaxing.

I have greatly benefitted from the sessions. I really liked her use of several techniques to help me achieve my goal. Thank you again for your help.

Jess helped me to cope with the stress during my last year at university. She helped me gain control of my life, taught me how to keep calm and I was able to sit my exams. Jess has the most relaxing voice ever and if I ever feel up-tight, I imagine her talking to me. Now I’m qualified. Thank you Jess, I couldn’t have done it without you.
