Jane Fox Hypnotherapy

About Me
I worked in the Pharmaceutical Industry for 30 years, helping in the development of new drugs in the areas of neurology, oncology and psychiatry. But in addition to that, I have always been fascinated by the power of complimentary therapies and their use alongside conventional medicine.

I couldn’t help but feel that we weren’t coping very well with the increasing problems of anxiety and depression within our society. It seemed to me that hypnotherapy would be a useful, holistic treatment to work alongside the medical therapies to help reduce some of these problems.

SolutionFocused Hypnotherapy appealed to me because it is science-based and focuses on the way the brain can create new pathways and new ways of thinking.


Jane’s journey

I joined a course in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy, run by the prestigious Clifton Practice in Manchester, and became qualified as a Solution Focused Clinical Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapist in 2014. I feel privileged to be able to use this wonderful therapy to help people with many and varied issues.

In 2016, I qualified as a Solution Focused Supervisor, and I now have a wonderful group of supervisees for whom I facilitate Group Supervision and 1:1 mentoring.

I became involved in teaching Hypnotherapy as an Assistant Lecturer for Clifton Practice Hypnotherapy Training in Manchester in 2018, and became a Senior Lecturer there in 2020.

In 2019, I jointly set up a new satellite school in Sheffield, where I am also a Senior Lecturer.

It gives me great pleasure to introduce students to this wonderful way of helping people, and to support them as graduates as their businesses develop.

What is Solution Focused Hypnotherapy?

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is a combination of ‘talking therapy’ and hypnosis. It is a modern therapy which utilises guided relaxation in trance to allow the mind to relax and focus on useful suggestions and thoughts.

The therapist helps the client to identify and focus on solutions, rather than the problem, enabling them to make significant positive change in their lives. We focus on moving the client towards their goals in small manageable steps – leaving the past in the past and focusing on the future.

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is effective, but results may vary and success cannot be guaranteed. The process is a collaboration therefore full client commitment is important.

TRAINING & Techniques

Further Training and Techniques

I was proud to achieve the Advanced Practitioner Diploma (Level 5) in 2022. During the training for this qualification, I developed skills in the areas of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Solution Focused Brief Therapy and Neuro-Linguistic Programming.

I have also in 2022 attended Level 1, 2 and 3 training courses in Solution Focused Brief Therapy with BRIEF, the world’s leading centre for solution focused practice.

As part of my Continuing Professional Development, I regularly attend training courses which support my ongoing knowledge of the research around clinical hypnotherapy and developments in neuroscience.

As required by the associate bodies, I attend regular supervision and I am myself a qualified Solution Focused supervisor. I also participate in regular Supervisors’ Supervision.
