Hygge  is a Danish word pronounced as 'heurga'.  I chose this name because I like the idea of hygge and also because Denmark is regularly voted one of the happiest places in the world  The Danish people enjoy having hygge moments in their lives.  There is no direct translation for the word but I have found a description that I like and I hope you will like too, 'the absence of anything annoying or emotionally overwhelming'.  That sounds good to me.

My name is Jo Clark.  I am a Clinical Solution Focused Hypnotherapist.  I trained at the highly regarded Clifton Practice in the South West.  I am able to offer sessions in 2 locations,

  • my home practice room in Brixton which is on the border of Plymouth and South Hams,

  • my clinic room at Thrive Hub in Plymouth City Centre. 

You will always receive a warm welcome.  I aim for you to be as comfortable as possible whilst you are visiting so please let me know if you have any special requirements. 

I am a member of  the Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy and I follow its code of conduct . I have full insurance and an enhanced DBS check.  

I gained a Joint Honours Degree in Speech and Psychology and this lead to my role as a Paediatric Speech and Language Therapist.  I worked for the NHS for 19 years with children aged  from 2 years to 18 years.  I have extensive experience of interacting with and supporting children and young people. I also managed a group of therapists.  Why the change to Solution Focused Hypnotherapy?  I used aspects of the 'solution focused' approach in my therapy sessions and found it to be powerful and to really make a difference, the clients also enjoyed it.   As time went on, I developed a greater interest in personal well-being both from a personal and professional perspective.  I came to understand that we all have the ability to change and that we all have a wealth of resources within us that we can use to make that change happen.  Sometimes we just need a helping hand to get started. 

I now work solely in the field of Solution Focused Hypnotherapy across the full age range (my oldest client to date being 96 years of age). I would be pleased to offer you Solution Focused Hypnotherapy to help you achieve the change you desire.
