She aims to find the underlying causes of ill health, educate with dietary and lifestyle advice, and prescribe supplements specific for the individual. Jan has also studied hypnotherapy as a safe and gentle method of facilitating positive changes so that clients can take control of their lives and achieve their goals.
Jan has been advising parents about their children’s health for over 20 years. She takes the time to find out exactly what is needed to bring a child to their optimal health and maintain it.

There is no need to live your life putting up with nagging health issues such as sinus and hayfever, digestive and bowel problems, headaches, poor sleep and allergies. Simple naturopathic remedies can help correct underlying imbalances to calm annoying symptoms, improve energy and create optimum vitality.
Hypnotherapy is a powerful tool which can help to change unwanted patterns of behaviour and achieve positive goals. With hypnotherapy it is possible to create a sustained calmness and peace of mind. Determination, resilience and optimism can be increased. Hypnosis is safe, relaxing and completely natural. Under hypnosis, concentrated focus and imagination are used in a deep state of relaxation to positively change behaviours and beliefs. Hypnotherapy can help in the management of anxiety, insomnia, fears, lack of confidence, weight management and becoming smoke free.
