Hello. I’m Jenny Hudson and I provide counselling and psychotherapy services in Manchester and online. If you’ve found me, I’m guessing you’re struggling with something, and need someone to talk to and some help to explore it further. Most of us struggle at some point in our lives. It may be as a result of a significant event such as a loss, break-up, or losing your job. Or you may have realised that you’ve been feeling worried or down recently and it's impacting your daily life. You may just feel stuck and can’t seem to move forward. Whatever your reason you are certainly not alone, and seeking help is a positive first step.

I used to be like you. I was depressed for many years but I didn’t know what to do about it. I went to see therapists who sat there blankly while I cried. I left and cried some more, wondering what was wrong with me. I felt so bad about myself that I would simply stay in bed and try to sleep most of the day away. I was unhappy in relationships because I either chose people who didn’t treat me well or I sabotaged relationships with people who did. I knew I needed help, but I couldn’t find it. I read books, I tried to eat better and to exercise. I was frustrated because I was willing to change but I just couldn’t work out what needed.

Expecting to have some enjoyment and a sense of fulfilment in life is not a pipe dream – it’s your purpose and your right. If you’re like 99% of others, then you can’t quit your job and travel the world because a quote on social media told you that’s how to be happy. Life is tough, and things often get thrown our way that knock us sideways. You might even be waking up more than you’d care to asking: “what is the point in all this?”. Or maybe you feel stuck in a cycle, struggling to make changes in your life? You're not alone, and you don't have to feel this way.

If you're tired of battling stress, overwhelm, anxiety or if you're frustrated because you can't seem to be as productive or confident as you want, or need, to be then hypnotherapy can work amazingly well for you. Your subconscious is in the driving seat and while it tries to help you feel safe and survive, it can also hinder you too. Often we aren't entirely aware, at a conscious level, why we're struggling or stuck in self-sabotaging behaviour patterns. Hypnotherapy is able to reach your subconscious and work with it to correct course, allowing you to achieve what you want.

Hi, my name is Ben and I'm the lead Clinical Psychologist for Project Trauma. I set up Project Trauma to provide the kind of personalised, compassionate psychological support that people need following events in their life which they have struggled to cope with. Psychological distress can affect anyone and everyone will have a different reaction to traumatic events in their life. We all have different tolerance and ways of coping, but at some stage in our life we will all need help from somewhere. Recently I have been working extensively with individuals suffering very understandable health anxiety related to the Covid-19 Pandemic.

At certain points in our lives, we might find ourselves in what may seem like an unbreakable cycle of self-destructive behaviours, overwhelming emotions and a sense of disconnect to those around us, or perhaps even within ourselves. If you’re reading this, it is likely that you currently find yourself somewhere within that cycle or you may have feelings of anxiety, depression or low self-worth. You may be experiencing relationship difficulties, intrusive and obsessive thoughts, self-harm, child-hood trauma or grief. Whatever the reason may be, I just want to firstly remind you that you are not alone.
