Hello and thank you for visiting Janet Smith Emotional Wellness Coaching.  Finding the right Counsellor, Therapist or Coach can seem a daunting prospect and I often find that my best sales force are my previous clients.  So if you have stumbled across me or been recommended, let me start by telling you exactly who I am and let’s see how we can work together.

My Journey 

I have always had a passion for helping others and had spent years in the role of the “counsellor” before I ever took up the training.  A naturally empathic person I always wanted the best for those I met and spent 20 years in Customer Service actually doing that, sorting problems, listening and directing customers to getting the help they needed.  Eventually, the sales targets became bigger than the little people and I walked out into the world of enterprise and self employment.  I started BrownSugar Events with a friend and created The All Woman Show www.allwomanshow.co.uk  an event for women of all ages, to meet and buy from local businesses and have great fun whilst they did so.  A few years later we sold the business and I found myself looking for a new challenge.

I studied Philosophy and embraced the positive psychology of speakers such as Dr Wayne Dyer, Eckhart Tolle and The Secret.  I was searching, I was learning but I had no real sense of where I was heading, but I was awakening to my own spiritual and personal journey. Then in 2010, major life events directed me to a point where I was very vulnerable, alone and frightened.  I made a choice then to succeed in rebuilding my life, to keep well and look after those I care for.  It was a crossroads; I chose the road less travelled and stepped away from what I knew into the unknown. 

So it began….

I trained as an NLP Practitioner, Hypnotherapist and Spectrum Therapist (TM) and Counsellor. I became involved with The Rowans Hospice undertaking training as a Bereavement Counsellor and joined such a wonderful inspiring and caring community.  Each step I took became easier and lighter and I embraced the journey of what I believe to be my life purpose with total passion and commitment. That’s not to say that there weren’t ups and downs but seeing the transformation of those I was working with inspired me throughout those times.  My absolute desire and drive was to help others heal emotionally from the difficulties in their past and succeed in living the life they were born to live.

Since then I have completed my Master NLP Practitioner & Advanced Hypnotherapy training and became a Platinum Spectrum Therapist (TM). Not only do I work 1-1 with clients but I am part of a team of coaches who have supported such charities as Peace4Life, Key4Life, The Wilderness Foundation alongside working in Bristol Young Offenders Institute and Ineo Life.

Now I help people who….


Find their life controlled and restricted due to Low Self Esteem, Confidence, Weight Loss, Depression, Anxiety and Stress.  However with over 500+ hours of clinical experience I have also dealt with clients suffering Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Abuse, Rape, Mental Health, Trauma, Addictions, Eating Disorders, Domestic Violence, Miscarriage, Loss and Bereavement.

People often ask me how I can work in such a wide variety of issues but what underpins all these emotionally distressing states are our Negative Emotions, Internal Conflicts and Limiting Beliefs – which is where I work to make positive, lasting change.

As an Emotional Wellness Coach I always feel privileged and humbled to work with clients who are often sharing with me their inner-most thoughts, feelings, aspirations and life stories. It is a very unique relationship and I would like to assure you of my confidentiality, professionalism and determination to help you achieve your goals. I am fully insured. I take part in regular Supervision and have an enhanced CRB check. I am an Accredited Member of the National Counselling Society, American Board of Hypnotherapy, and American Board of Neuro Linguistic Programming. I am also a member of The Association of Synergy Coaching CIC, and abide by their ethics and code of practice. I have a treatment room in Horndean and I also work within Healthspace, Waterlooville.

People would say that I am gentle, warm, approachable and caring; but instead of hearing it from me, please check out my testimonials.
