Jayne Cox LCHDip MISMAuk
I have been in private practice for over 20 years and it's such a privilege to be able to work closely with such amazing and resilient human beings.
Over the years as a therapist, coach and stress management/wellbeing consultant I've listened to how hard life has been for my clients and how they've spent years and years trying to fix themselves. They often blame themselves for being stuck in the wrong career, unhealthy relationships and exhausted by the effort required to reduce stress, anxiety and to successfully move on from the trauma's in life.
Does this sound like you?
You're not alone and many clients are looking for more and asking questions about where their life is going. That's so often how they find their way to working with me.
Because I never stand still and look at the best way to help my clients I'm now qualified to deliver Dr Stephen Porges Safe and Sound Protocol alongside my coaching. This innovative intervention is quite remarkable and acts like a human reset button!
What is SSP?
SSP is an education system that has been developed over 40 years, in really simple terms it helps reset our system from the challenges of life.
This 5 day programme is based upon Dr Stephen Porges ‘Polyvagal Theory’ and was derived from almost 4 decades of research into the relationship between the autonomic nervous system and social- emotional processes. It is designed to reduce stress, anxiety and increase resilience and the sense of wellbeing and calm.
Our primitive ancestors would use the stress response to fight, flight or freeze when they were in danger, it was literally life saving but a temporary state. Stress would induce physiological changes to heart rate, breath, digestion etc and stress hormones would be released. Temporary slackening of the middle ear muscles would also take place to help them to detect low sounds that are instinctively associated with life threatening situations.
Today we are often generally stressed on a daily basis, this and challenging, traumatic events lead to the brain being wired to be in permanent state of fight or flight or freeze, with middle ear muscles now permanently slackened.
It is understood that the brain can change, something known as Neuroplasticity and SSP helps a stress wired brain rewire to a calmer state.
SSP delivers a scientifically filtered music programme undertaken over the course of 5 daily 1 hour sessions that stimulates the nervous system regulation by exercising and strengthening the middle ear muscles. This process tightens the slack middle ear muscles and in turn retunes the nervous system to bring a sense of safety, enhanced social engagement and improves the ability to socially interact more calmly and improves general human wellbeing.
Undertaking the SSP enhances our ability to work, learn, focus, concentrate and gain greater benefits from talking therapies/coaching and other human interactions.
The system is hired from my garden consulting room for 7 days, after a complimentary suitability call. We arrange a first session for collection and then a follow up for the systems return. I will support you throughout and advise on how to keep the positive benefits going.
I can also supply the intervention as part of a workplace wellbeing strategy, please contact me for details.

A selection of Testimonials
"Creeping up behind me was a wave that would overwhelm my state of mind, I knew I would lose control over my own life - an eating disorder was one manifestation - and depression would follow. With Jayne's help I have learned what it was - the underlying problem. For me it was largely loneliness, starting from the distance from family and from being largely alone when raising young children. The patterns remained – many self-perpetuated - and I didn't realise how much it was hurting me. It was truly wonderful talking to Jayne whom I found to be a gifted, mature and very experienced guide out of the wilderness. I feel blessed our paths met. Clarity has been so empowering for me and I am now in control and every day I feel stronger. And when life happens, and storms brew, I know what to do to protect myself." KR
"I wanted to say a massive thank you for everything you did and have helped me to achieve. Through your help and support I have managed things I would never have dreamt of doing and my life is totally different and I am so much happier! The main reason for me email was to tell you the girl who was to scared to ever go for a coffee on her own is going travelling on her own, half way round the world!!!!! I would be lying if I said I was not scared, I am terrified and excited but also so proud of myself and feel I owe so much to you and the amazing work you do.
"Thank you again for everything Jayne words cannot express how grateful I am to you. You have enabled me to turn my life around!!!" R
"I honestly don't believe I'd be here if it weren't for you! 'Thank you' is not nearly enough" KN
"I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the work that you did with Susan. She is now so much more confident and able to cope with so much more than she did a year to 18 months ago.I wish you all the best with the work that you're doing with everyone else. There are many professionals out there who could benefit a lot from listening to you. I wish you success and happiness and again, thank you so very much." P B
"Your help, kindness and support has been vital in helping me begin the road to a brighter future. The advice and life coaching has given me the tools and confidence to explore difficult issues and made me look to the future rather than live in a past of regrets. Thank you." C.S

I just wanted to let you know what a difference coaching has made to my life and to my career. I’ll be back to explore my next steps. Thank You. JP
I’m not sure where I’d be if I hadn’t asked for your professional coaching. It’s empowering to not surrender yourself to someone but to be part of the process of change. I now know how capable I am, I have my own mind fit kit and I am using it. My new business is about to launch, thank you! EW
You were there when I felt so very lost. You patiently helped me see my possibilities. If anyone wanted to make a small or large life change, I’d suggest they speak to you first. JS
Jayne brought clarity and focus back to my life and I enjoyed working with her in a very peaceful environment; she is very perceptive and calming and very creative. My time spent with Jayne gave me the chance to stop and think about my values and what is important to me, what really matters and to make positive change to my life. PJ
