About me

I provide therapeutic coaching services particularly suited to women who identify as neurodivergent.

My specialist areas include; 

  • ADHD
  • HSP's (Highly Sensitive People)
  • Dysregulation of the Nervous System 
  • Stress and Anxiety
  • Adults who have experienced trauma

Living with a diagnosis of cPTSD and identifying as neurodivergent myself, I understand that you’lI need to feel that you can trust me and find safety, so it’s important to know something about me before deciding to get in touch.

I hope this ‘about me’ helps you to feel comfortable and safe to take those first steps to contact me.

About me (hello and welcome)

I'm Jayne Cox and I live near the breath-taking Northumberland coast with Michael, my husband and co-founder of  our wellness and tech company, Fusion Spaces. 

Sharing our adventures, love of life and the outdoors are an array of wonderful animals, including our family of 5 small ‘larger than life’ dogs!

"If you want to improve the world, start by making people feel safer" - Dr Stephen Porges"

About me professionally  

I have been in private practice for 25 years, originally providing eating disorder therapy and life coaching. The foundation for my work was built upon my personal experience of childhood trauma and recovery from anorexia in my early 20's. 

With a later diagnosis of cPTSD I understood that trauma had remained trapped within my body and realised that my story was shared by many. With society norms not recognising people who feel and think like me, I came to understand later in life that I wasn't neurotypical and had yet to find my tribe.

This is why it is my passion to support you to unmask and be your true self, even a little later in life. I've travelled this road too.

Alongside this, my work and passion at ‘Breathing Space’ focusses on understanding trauma and our natural protective states of fight or flight, freeze and shutdown. I do this through research, study, professional training and  my lived experience. I focus on helping clients increase their sense of safety and comfort, whilst reducing dis-ease by delivering compassionate and kind therapeutic coaching, supported by an innovative evidence based digital sound/listening therapy, called the SSP.

Why choose to work with me?

I work with my clients online using a variety of platforms, and have done for many years.

So, if you are looking to work with a coach that can fit around your life, with no travel and have sessions in your familiar surroundings, from where ever you are in the UK or the world, this is perfect for you. 

So what next? 

The most important starting point is feeling safe and feeling ready to work with me.

From there, I will support and guide you, helping you understand your nervous system and what’s happening to you. Believe me it’s fascinating and once you know, you know this for life.

Together, we make sense of why our minds and bodies react as they do to our life stories and experiences.

Understanding and knowledge is empowering. In a sense working with me will help you to demystify things and you’ll take some control back over what often feels so ‘out of your control’  and perhaps challenging, overwhelming and  often painful.

How I work

I use an evidence based and neuroscience/trauma informed approach to coaching and supporting you, alongside an instinctive and deep understanding of how best to achieve results.

I’m compassionate, an experienced active listener and my vast and varied lived experience makes me well placed to support you, and it is from this place that we can make positive changes, together.

Introduction to the Safe and Sound Protocol

The most effective and life changing technologies I use personally and offer to my clients, is the Safe and Sound Protocol.

This therapeutic, kind, yet powerful digital sound therapy programme helps to calm the autonomic nervous system. Developed by Dr Stephen Porges, the founder of the Polyvagal Theory, and digitally delivered through Unyte in the US, I was one of the first practitioners to become a qualified provider within the UK in 2019.

You will find  more details in the videos section of my profile, you can visit the Unyte-iLs website and of course, contact me to discover more. 

My clients are looking for felt safety, to discover themselves and to heal, or to understand and find some freedom from feeling fearful and lost. They are open to learning insights, gaining understanding and the tools to live well, calmer, and a more regulated and connected life.

In short, if you are reading my profile, I imagine you want to feel well and to get on with your life, and my SSP coaching acts as the spring board and foundation for this.

How do we work together?

We work online, so almost any location with internet access makes coaching possible. 

I offer SSP digital sound therapy programmes and short to medium term coaching. 

We can discuss your needs and find a way forward, in fact to start the ball rolling it is quite simple to make contact through my profile.

So, if my profile resonates with you and you feel a sense of connection and comfort, please contact me, jayne@breathingspacewellness.uk or use the contact form, or arrange a free discovery call, through my profile.

*Professional referrals welcome, please contact me to discuss* 

Wishing you well and I look forward to speaking soon and helping you find your well deserved ‘breathing space.’

A selection of Testimonials


If you're at all in two minds whether this is for you I implore you to take the chance & go for it.

I think the beauty of this protocol is its simplicity, but I also understand thinking that it might be too simple & that it might be too left-field to do a thing because it's exactly what I thought before giving it ago, but you know what? It's changed my life and noticeable differences were instant.

The feeling I've been carrying for some years now, a constant nervous anxious hyper-alert state from the minute I woke up that came with me through every minute of every day dissipated as the week went on. The time & space I gave to the process made me know that fundamentally I was safe & secure.

I feel like I don't have to worry about whether I can face the day, I can roll better with whatever the day holds and I feel like time isn't waiting on me. I feel I am lead by my emotions not overwhelmed by them anymore. Rachael Nov 2019 ( I am happy to speak to prospective clients about it too!)


I found the whole process of doing the SSP easy and felt very well supported by you throughout. The hardest part was actually being open-minded enough to give it a try, even though I knew the science made sense.

I don’t really know what I was expecting to change as a result of doing the SSP but I have noticed many positive effects. I feel calmer now in a way that’s hard to describe and seem able to think more clearly. I have noticed that my thoughts aren’t so negative and I feel less tired.

I feel it’s been hugely valuable in my ongoing work of taking care of mental health and managing my responses to triggers and stress. Charlotte Nov 2019


In all honesty, I was a little sceptical about the SSP but willing to complete the programme and see what happened.

The trickiest part on days one and two was doing nothing and noticing how strange the filtered music sounded. Being so quiet is certainly odd but by day 3 I was keen to complete the challenge.

Whilst I didn’t notice an instant calmness, over the course of the following weeks since its completion I found I could focus more and remain calm in challenging situations.

In short, it’s easier to not sweat the small stuff now, so the benefits are positively affecting me directly, my relationships and my business. Michael Oct 2019

"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 my email was to tell you the girl who was too scared to ever go for a coffee on her own is going travelling on her own, halfway around 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

"Jayne naturally made me feel comfortable, enabling me to successfully remove barriers that were holding me back. She is very professional and offers that extra special element of holistic support that I have not found elsewhere. I highly recommend Jayne as a coach to you. Thank you Jayne. :-)" K.C.

"You have been a tower of strength to me on many occasions and keep me going on my way to recovery" B

"Just wanted to thank you for the Coaching that you have given me over the past six months. I've come a long way, with your motivation and strategies!" A P

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 a positive change to my life. PJ
