Meet Lisa Jackson


Having helped thousands of people over the past 16 years to fall pregnant, quit smoking, stop nail-biting, lose weight, overcome phobias, give birth easily and naturally, gain confidence and beat exam nerves, I’m passionate about sharing the benefits of hypnotherapy with my clients.

I am a member of the General Hypnotherapy Register and have been awarded The General Qualification in Hypnotherapy Practice by The General Hypnotherapy Standards Council. Members adhere to a code of conduct and are bound by strict rules of confidentiality. I am also a member of the British Society Of Clinical Hypnosis, a professional body whose aim is to promote and assure high standards and ethical practice.

I have full Professional Indemnity Insurance and Public Indemnity Insurance.

Before becoming a hypnotherapist I studied English, Psychology and Linguistics at the University Of Cape Town, South Africa, and worked as a journalist on Cosmopolitan magazine before spending 11 years on Zest, a health and fitness magazine.

In May 2017 I was one of 40 individuals who were featured in The Sunday Times‘s Alternative Rich List aka The Enriched List, as being someone whose life has been ‘rich in experience, rich in spirit, rich in life’, an honour I shared with the likes of Vivienne Westwood, David Attenborough and Banksy. In 2019, I was honoured to be invited to attend the Women of the Year Lunch and Awards, an event that ‘recognises and celebrates the rich diversity of women from across the UK who have inspired us all’.

I’m the author of three best-selling books: Adore Yourself Slim: Eat, Exercise and Hypnotise Yourself to a Healthier, Happier You (published in January 2011 by Simon & Schuster), Running Made Easy (which has sold over 110,000 copies and became Britain’s bestselling beginner’s running book) and the award-winning Your Pace Or Mine? What Running Taught Me About Life, Laughter And Coming Last, detailing my journey from fitness-phobe to 100 Marathon Club member. I am also the author of Quit For Ever: Stop Smoking and Vaping the Super-quick, Easy and Fun Way and the co-author of two travel books: Travel Seekness and Travel Agents (an extract from which was awarded Fifth Place in the Print or Online Article category of the 90th Annual Writer’s Digest Writing Competition).

I’m frequently quoted in the press and have been a speaker at the Vitality Show, Be:FIT, Chris Evans’ RunFestRun, The National Running Show and the University of the Highland and Islands in Perth, Scotland.

I am a highly experienced Hypnobirthing teacher and have not only taught over 500 couples but have lectured about Hypnobirthing at five London hospitals. I have also trained as a doula (professional birth companion) with the world-renowned birth pioneer Michel Odent.
