About Jeni

About Jeni Nelson BSc DSFH CNHC

Hello and welcome.  My name is Jeni and I am a professionally qualified clinical hypnotherapist and psychotherapist.


I hold a diploma in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (DSFH) awarded by the renowned Clifton Practice (the founders of SFH) and have furthered my knowledge through training with BRIEF, the home of Solution Focused Brief Therapy in the UK.

My training in Compassion Focused Therapy is by Dr Chris Irons through the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust, a mental health NHS trust specialising in talking therapies. I have further qualifications in group psychotherapy through the Compassionate Mind Foundation and in therapeutic storytelling.​

My approach...

My practice has a solutions focus. This means not asking what's wrong with you but asking what's right with you and taking it from there. Working with your best hopes for the future and setting your most amazing human asset, the brain, to work producing the solutions to make that happen. This way of working not only feels good but is proven to be very successful.

My approach respects you as the authority on your life. You are the most competent person to decide what is right for you, to decide which of your goals are the most important right now and how to achieve them. Your goals may be general; I want to be happy, I want to feel in control, or specific; I want to be able to drive on the motorway, I want to be free of this phobia. Whatever your starting point, I can support you.

Professional and Accountable...

I am a member of the CNHC's accredited register meaning that I am regulated by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care, recommended by the UK Government, private healthcare providers and the NHS.


I subscribe to the ethical guidance, supervision and continuing professional development requirements of the CNHC, which means that you can be assured that my practice is safe, evidence based and bang up to date. 


When I'm not in the clinic or juggling family life I can be found at the allotment, a place of community and tranquillity. I have been practicing Buddhism for over 20 years now, enjoying the benefits of studying mindful awareness and meditation as well as the broader teachings of Buddhism. Combining the allotment and Buddhism, I think of myself as an 'earth based Buddhist'. I suspect this is a term I've made up but it makes me very happy!

Hypnotherapy is a wonderful process, generating change at the pace you set, in a way that is comfortable for you.


The actual act of hypnosis is very relaxing and so is a pleasant experience. It is a completely natural state in which you are always in control. In the therapy room we normally induce this state laying down or seated in a comfortable chair.   more...
