Jenn Dodds

Jenn Dodds, a graduate of Coastal Academy, took over the day-to-day business of Coastal Academy in 2017 after the passing of our Founder Leslie McIntosh. Prior to that, she had a variety of careers from banking to bookkeeping to auditing in the investment industry. Training and coaching have always been a big part of Jenn’s work life and are an aspect that she truly enjoys.

To Jenn, hypnotherapy is not simply a job, it’s a way of life. Lessons learned from the Clinical Hypnotherapist Course have found their way into her everyday life and continue to enrich that life today. In her private practice she utilizes Regression and Parts Therapy, Soul Screening©, Past Life Regression, and Advanced Spiritual Hypnosis among other techniques to empower and aid her clients. Through both her hypnotherapy practice and Coastal Academy, Jenn hopes to be a driving force for positive change in people’s lives, and to carry on the good works of Leslie McIntosh.
