What Valued clients say …



“Before RTT I experienced low self-worth and based my self-image on the validation of others. I found Jo online and immediately enjoyed her vibe and her energy and wanted to work with her.

RTT has really helped me to feel more confident and to embrace who I am and to not compare myself to others. This has been an important part of coming into my power and recognising my innate self-worth. If I had not south RTT treatment I think I would still be stuck in some of the childhood trauma cycles that have been playing in my adult relationships. Regular therapy helped me to identify these issues, but RTT has been pivotal for me to release them.

The RTT experience with Jo was very smooth. I appreciated how safe Jo made me feel safe during sessions of my most traumatic memories and she was incredibly gentle, warm and supportive.

I have really noticed a massive shift in my own energy and I am no longer having the catastrophizing thought patterns. I feel much more confident and happier in myself. RTT has really helped me to start to practice more self-compassion and to be gentle with myself.

I can’t recommend RTT enough.

“From the bottom Reading Group to Top Reading Group”

I used to feel really embarrassed and sad about my reading cos mostly everyone in my class knew how to read thousands of books and I could only read a few. I tried to get better but it didn’t help.

Hypnotherapy with Jo helped me a lot and I am now in the top reading group and I am reading chapter books. It was real fun and sooo relaxing and just felt exciting.

In about 2 weeks I went to the top reading group. I am proud of myself and love reading now. The recording helped me to believe too.

Jo’s great – she can help you if you need help with your reading too.


From “Childhood Trauma” to “Self-Worth”


Jo’s hypnotherapy helped me move away organically from my childhood pain. Through her process I was able to accept myself, set ideal goals, form positive thinking, appreciate my achievements, appreciate others and life, rather than the self-destructive attitudes I had created upon myself. Jo helped me to let go of the past and guided me along a sad and lonely journey – to a more positive and uplifting life. I really appreciate all her time and energy she put in for me and I recommend others to please get in touch for a life changing and wonderful self-transformative journey.


“Confidence” “Trusting Instincts”

I came to Jo for help with my confidence and decision making, as I had been finding it hard to trust my instincts for years, ending up making wrong decisions in major areas of my life. The hypnotherapy session was really powerful and revealed the root of this self-doubt and Jo’s empathic and kind way of helping me process it all really helped solidify my discoveries.

I felt a difference in my self-awareness straight away, even during the session, and since then have a deep sense of motivation and confidence to trust my instincts and rationally make decisions.

It’s helping my marriage a lot too since I am not changing my mind all the time anymore!

I would definitely recommend Jo as a very skilled and caring therapist. I also think hypnotherapy is an amazing tool for anyone to try.

“Low Self-Confidence to Class Leader ”

Before I had the hypnosis I felt very nervous to speak in front of the children in my class. I wanted to share my news but I would start shaking and my voice would go very, very quiet – so no one could hear me.

I felt so nervous and very scared to speak in front of adults – I would forget my words and breathe really, really fast.

But then I had hypnosis and it was pretty good. I knew I could do it (speak aloud in front of others). I felt so brave.

Now I am way better at speaking in class and at school assembly. I feel fantastic – I don’t feel shy or worried at all. I was made class leader and I even went to our school principal to ask if our class could do a baking fundraiser.

If any kids feel shy or scared like I used to be I would say go and get hypnosis – Jo made me laugh and feel I could be brave and do anything.

Debbie McMillan, New Zealand

My RTT Session with Jo was astounding. I’m so grateful to have found her!! I have suffered from disordered eating and low self-worth for over 3 decades, a truly tough case.  I’ve tried everything from CPT, countless talk therapy sessions, medication, and hypnosis sessions before discovering RTT.  

The session I had with Jo was life-changing and truly amazing! Through regression, we were able to get to the root cause of the illness by revisiting scenes from my childhood. I had no idea some of these scenes from my past had helped pave the way to form such destructive behaviour patterns in early adolescence.  

Jo was so wonderfully kind, calm, and supportive through some emotional points in our session. She lovingly propped me up and kept me going on the path to better health and wellbeing.  

Jo Hickman is a wonderful woman, in no uncertain terms. She has helped me achieve something I have been trying to do for too long. RTT has changed my life forever, and I am forever grateful for having my life back. Bless you Jo.  

I can sincerely recommend RTT with Jo and know you will get the results you need to become the best version of yourself!

Kelly Brimblecombe, Singapore

Josephine is a wonderful therapist who beautifully and compassionately guided me through a session of RTT.

The session was for organisation and memory  and I’m much better at remembering to be organised now 🙂 I had a self sabotage block of not recording things down and keeping things Uptodate and organised but now I’m able to do that and I’m confident I will remember and be alerted of what I need to do. This has alleviated a lot of stress for me.

I would definitely recommend Josephine.

I am delighted to provide this Testimonial for Jo Hickman.    

As an RTT Practitioner you will find yourself in the most capable of hands, her expertise, her communication skills, her intuition, her empathy, astute perception and wealth of life and career experience definitely add up to setting Jo apart.  

With her engaging personality she quickly establishes a very trusting and confidential relationship which enables her to support and ensure her clients in getting the very best outcomes.   Having a highly successful educational career working with children and literally changing their lives in so many ways, it is easy to see why it is second nature for her to be able to draw on her career and life experiences and long list of talents, and work with the tools and strategies of RTT  bringing about extraordinary and rapid transformation in so many areas of people’s lives where they are experiencing challenges.    

Finding the right words to explain the experiences I have had with Jo in her RTT role is no easy task – amazing, transforming, extraordinary, life changing.   It is really something you have to experience to realise how profound the changes are.   Jo doesn’t just do what is necessary – she goes the extra mile every time, and it’s that extra mile that often really counts, and that is what an extraordinary practitioner does.   I am 100% confident you will be absolutely delighted with the results you get with your RTT session/s with Jo, as I have been. 
Thankyou very much Jo for your amazing skills. 

Gisela Bustamante, Mexico

I had the privilege to receive an enlightening and transforming session of RTT, via zoom,  with Josephine.
Despite our language challenges the shift in my beliefs around a “problem to sleep all night” were completely turned around. Josephine regressed me to to scenes and helped me to understand the reasons for my beliefs and actions and there has been an immediate shift. Each day since our session I’m able to sleep much better all night.
Thank you so much Josephine!!, you are an amazing life changing therapist.
Lots of love and gratitude.

Where do I begin…I was feeling stuck and uncertain if my choice of pursuing my passion as a therapist was truly what I was meant to be doing with my life. After having worked for over 40 years in a full-time job, making the decision to come out on my own to run a business has been quite a challenging journey. It’s been a learning curve and there has been lots of ups and downs, which led to my uncertainty of whether this path that I chose was the right one for me. I believed on a conscious level that being a therapist was what I was meant to be doing but I hadn’t quite connected to it on an emotional level. And boy oh boy does running your own business really reveal all the parts of you that still require healing. So feeling rather deflated, on the brink of giving up and depressingly pondering if I were to return to full time employment to a job that didn’t spark any joy in me, I reached out to Jo for an RTT session. From the moment I connected with Jo, I was immediately drawn to her kind, gentle, and positive nature. During our session, she created a safe and nurturing space where I could truly explore my doubts, fears, and desires. That RTT session turned out to be a profound breakthrough for me. Jo’s expertise and guidance helped me uncover deep-seated beliefs and patterns that were holding me back.

Through her gentle encouragement and insightful questions, I gained a newfound understanding of myself and my true calling as a therapist. The session confirmed with absolute certainty that being a therapist is what I am meant to be doing. It was as if all the puzzle pieces of my life had suddenly fallen into place. I now know that being a therapist isn’t just my passion, it is my life’s purpose! Since that session, I’ve experienced remarkable shifts, I have so much more clarity in my path and a renewed sense of purpose. I feel excited and motivated once again to continue on this path I have chosen. I am forever grateful to Jo for her incredible support, her kind-hearted nature, and her ability to guide me towards my true calling. With her help, I am now stepping into my role as a business owner and therapist with passion, purpose, and an unwavering commitment to helping others heal. The future looks brighter than ever, and I am excited to embrace the journey ahead. –

“Teen Anxiety”

Jo was really helpful with everything she did. I chose to work with her because I have anxiety and couldn’t step foot into a mall and busy places. It got so bad that my friends wanted me to go to the mall and I broke down in tears the Morning of that day. She has help me so much and I don’t know what I would have done without her. I have grown so much confidence the past 3 months with Jo and I could not be happier at the moment she is truly the best.

PS I have gained so much confidence that I have got myself a part time job

When someone comes into your life, especially at a time when you yourself are having difficulties clearing the past and identifying your potential ahead of you, it is humbling to have a beautiful and positive lady, Jo, reach out and offer you a service, through her hypnotherapy, that unlocks and unleashes a new inner strength to move you on in your life. My sessions with Jo reached places within me that needed addressing and adjusting to give me confidence to believe in myself, and know that it was now time to move on. Jo is professional and caring and it was a pleasure to work with her and allow her into my life. With Jo, I didn’t just learn to smell the roses again, I was able to pick the roses. If you’re unsure, insecure or just need a boost, then reach out and fid yourself with this empowering lady with her wealth of knowledge, support and aroha designated just for you. Thank you Jo, I’m growing my roses now.

I went to Jo’s 3 day retreat, “Empowered Educators”, and it was just amazing in every way! Jo makes you feel so welcome and is so friendly. Her house was  lovely and the surroundings were peaceful which added to your sense of well-being. The food was delicious. The hypnotherapy sessions with Jo are awesome and so rewarding. It helped me connect with my feelings and allowed me to change my approach at work. I would recommend Jo and her inspirational work to anyone.

Throughout life we often juggle many hats. I was juggling two jobs, being a mother, taxiing our children to their after school activities, being a wife, house cleaner, cook, helping out my parents and parents in law, all things we just do. Though, among this hecticness, we can often put ourselves last. Through Jo’s 3 day retreat, Empowered Educators, I came out feeling refreshed, more confident and empowered as a woman, something I think is so important as we run about our hectic lives.
