My Story

Hello I am Jackie Crewdson-Kennedy, I would like to share with you a little about my life so far.

I have had an incredible life…….

Some parts were really awful, where I was challenged to my limit. Conversely  I have been blessed with and experienced amazingly good things.

I am now one of the happiest and most content people I know.

  • I now enjoy great health
  • My husband and I have a partnership filled with love and respect
  • I have a loving and understanding relationship with my wonderful children
  • A balanced lifestyle.
  • I adore my coaching work, it gives me immense pleasure every day 
  • A fun and active social life.

But it has not always been this way.

I had a highly abusive childhood.

We emigrated to South Africa when I was eleven.  I was raped when I was a young woman. This trauma led me into a long-term abusive relationship, followed by an even more abusive marriage.

I got divorced, and was then a single mother with two young children.

I returned to England when I was 35 years old, with no money, friends or support.

I Built myself a highly successful business for over twenty years. Found and developed long term friends and a sense of community.

But when my children were 10 and 11 years old, their father kidnapped them, and took them to live in another country. They never returned to live with me.

I had six years where I suffered from extreme depression, panic attacks, anxiety, insomnia. I developed a bad relationship with alcohol, and had tremendous moods swings. Each and every day was a challenge.

I was lonely and in extreme back pain, and so emotionally broken, unable to cope with a relationship, that I remained single for over 20 years.

During these years alone, I worked out that the only way to get through this pain was to forgive those who had wronged me and most of all myself.

Then things began to change and I began a new journey to a new me.

In 2014 I was diagnosed with breast and lymphatic cancer, this turned out to be a real blessing, a crossroad where my life changed for ever.

After surgery and whilst going through treatment I used this time to go back and study and gained an INLPTA Practitioner. Followed by an INLPTA Master Practitioner in Neuro Linguistic Programming. The following year I trained as a Hypnotherapist. 

Since 2015 I have had the honour of helping over 100 different clients with a myriad of problems, through my NLP training and life experience I find I can relate and empathise with all my clients.

I have created a safe, calm environment where your can come and learn how to overcome whatever challenge you may have, yourself.
