About Jenny Amir
“Your present circumstances don’t determine where you can go – they merely determine where you start.” Nido Qubein
For as long as I can remember, I have had an interest in people – what makes them tick, what inspires them and how (or why) they do what they do.
The above quote is a lovely reminder to me that we all have the power within us to ultimately choose who we really want to be. Although we can’t change our past, today we can certainly choose ourselves a better future.
As a teenager and young adult I struggled with illness and difficult personal circumstances, which resulted in a lack of confidence until my mid-20’s. Around this time I went travelling to Australia & New Zealand for a year, and came back with a renewed sense of self, and an interest in all things holistic.
I developed a keen interest in the mind-body connection, especially in relation to the power of the mind in healing and well-being. As a result, I spent many years studying different elements of holistic and complementary medicine in my spare time. Following careers in the NHS and later as a Programme Manager for a national TV company, in 2004 I followed my passion and re-trained as a Cognitive Hypnotherapist & NLP Practitioner, at the internationally acclaimed Quest Institute in Central London.
Not only did this training swiftly help me overcome an immense personal difficulty at the time, it gave me real confidence to take control of my life. It is now my passion to help others achieve self-confidence and the ability to regain personal control and happiness in their lives.
Over the past 14 years I have worked as a Cognitive Hypnotherapist in clinics in Harley Street and St Thomas’ Hospital in London, as well as in Wimbledon, Hertfordshire and Kent. I have helped many hundreds of clients to achieve positive changes and amazing personal breakthroughs, helping them overcome a wide range of issues, and to achieve things they would have previously deemed unattainable.
I consider it a pleasure and a privilege to have helped so many people to overcome the obstacles to their happiness and success – if you would like me to, I’ll be happy to do the same for you.
