Hello, I'm Julie. I'm a registered Clinical Hypnotherapist.
I've used hypnotherapy to change my life and I want to help you too.
I've created and run a unique and simple weight reset course called The Real Me MindTraining ® which shows life-long dieters how to reprogramme your mind, control your weight easily and feel confident in your body incorporating hypnotic semaglutide ® the virtual weight loss jab.
I'm a well known classical voice teacher and performance coach and have worked with over 100 singers developing my MindTraining for Singers Courses and you can find out more about these and my vocal technique and MindTraining fusion courses I run by selecting the buttons at the top menu.

I have always loved singing. From a young age I would sing and entertain anyone who wanted to listen, and a number who didn't! It led me to gain a degree in Music, a diploma in Singing from the Royal College of Music and further studies of opera and voice teaching with the world-renowned Australian Opera singer and teacher, Janice Chapman.
But like any performer, nerves have always played a part in my story. I had many auditions and performances where I was so nervous it affected my performance. Often feeling deflated afterwards, I realised that other singers had to be in the same position.
I wondered whether meditation might help, but whilst searching for courses on guided meditation, I kept seeing the word hypnotherapy. Intrigued, I signed up for a Hypnotherapy in Practice Diploma with Adam Eason (National Council of Hypnotherapists) and in the process became qualified to help others overcome their nerves and stage fright and much more.
Slowly but surely word started to spread about how I could help other performers and singers using the power of hypnotherapy to overcome their fears. In my first year after qualifying, I worked with over 100 classical singers, some of whom went on to reach the final rounds of several prestigious singing competitions. (I can't tell you who or where due to confidentiality!!)
At the crux of the issue for me had always been my weight and not feeling confident or comfortable enough in my own skin. Having dieted from the age of nine, I had spent my life as a serial yo-yo dieter, always self-conscious on stage about how I looked.
But nothing worked – intermittent fasting, Slimming World, Weight Watchers – I discounted them all one by one, still no further along than I previously had been and menopause made things even worse!
Then one day in February 2022 it dawned on me – what if I could create a Hypnotherapy tool to help other people also struggling with their weight which had similar effects to the appetite suppressant drug semaglutide? Without any of the medication – was there a way to harness the power of hypnotherapy to develop a hypnotic semaglutide? (a virtual weight loss jab?)
Now only 9 months after the beta version of my first trial began, the pioneering group (including myself and my husband Andrew) have lost 32 pounds each and counting. It’s still early days but the fact we have all lost a large amount of weight is staggering. One of those on the trial is also a choral soloist singer, who has lost nearly 5 stones and dropped 5 dress sizes. Previously full of stage fright, she now steps confidently into the spotlight and every performance is her best.
I now lead an ever growing number of people fed up with their relationship with food and all of them are getting tremendous wins each week.
I know it’s not about focusing on the numbers on the scales, I just want as many people to feel as comfortable in themselves as possible whether they’re on stage or in photographs or just looking in a mirror. I no longer want anyone to feel they have to hide away and if they have a passion such as performing or singing, I want them to embrace it without the fear that so often accompanies it.
