Joanne Harper Hypnotherapy
Time to make a change? Hypnotherapy could be perfect for you. I am a fully qualified, fully insured and committed hypnotherapist, working full time to help people to change their lives for the better. My initial consultation sessions are complimentary, confidential and without obligation to continue. They give you the ideal opportunity to find out exactly how hypnotherapy can help you, ask any questions you may have and give you a chance to meet me in a professional (not home based) yet relaxed and comfortable setting.
Whether you would like to quit smoking, change a habit, overcome a fear, phobia or anxiety, or achieve that goal, change IS possible. At Joanne Harper Hypnotherapy, modern hypnotherapy is combined with other proven techniques to provide you with the tools to unlock a better future. Your desired future is the goal of therapy at all times - what you want to change or achieve is always the focus. Using a range of proven effective techniques including Clinical Hypnosis, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and NLP, we can work together towards making the positive steps you need to make towards a better future for you. Support is available between hypnotherapy sessions if required, and hypnotherapy recordings are provided to support and reinforce the work done in sessions.
Having spent 14 years working in education as a Teacher, Special Needs Co-ordinator and Assistant Head Teacher, I realised that by far the most rewarding aspect of my career was helping people to take steps towards fulfilling their full potential. It was this aspect of Hypnotherapy that initially drew me towards this profession. Working together with clients to identify how they want to change their lives and then helping them to make the steps towards improving their lives is a complete privilege. Seeing how lives can be transformed by hypnotherapy never gets boring!
'Before I had hypnotherapy with Joanne I was quite sceptical, but I am so glad that I had it! My lifelong and intense fear of heights stopped me from doing many things over the years and affected my life badly. Following therapy I no longer have a fear of heights. I'm now a complete convert and recommend hypnotherapy to everyone!' Janet, Portsmouth

Initial Consultations are complimentary. An initial consultation provides the opportunity to discuss how hypnotherapy can help you personally and to dispel any fears or anxieties you may have. After an initial consultation you will be able to decide if you would like to go ahead with hypnotherapy sessions; there is absolutely no obligation to do so.
The number of hypnotherapy sessions required depends on your individual needs and circumstances and this will be discussed at the initial consultation.
Each Hypnotherapy session costs £60 and includes therapy CDs. Sessions are usually once a week. Support is available between sessions and on completion of a course of sessions.
Quit Smoking is a one off session of up to 2 hours and costs £180. Please note that Quit Smoking sessions do not require an initial consultation, please request Quit Smoking when you book to ensure you get an extended session. After session support is provided.
Hypno-Gastric Band courses are £295 and include CDs. Courses are 4 sessions, consisting of 3 consecutive weekly sessions and a follow up session at a later date. Support is provided between sessions and upon completion of the course.
