Joanna Curtis, BA(Hons),MBA,PG Cert (Clin.Hyp.) PDCHyp,MBSCH
As a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist, I am qualified to treat a wide range of issues and conditions. Whether the problem you are seeking to resolve is psychological, physical, or a combination of the two, I will work with you on finding a solution. I take an evidence-based approach whenever possible and aim to complete each therapy plan in as few sessions as is feasible.
My caseload is extremely varied. The majority of clients I see are seeking help with some form of anxiety related condition. I also treat a lot of people for habit modification issues including those related to eating, drinking and smoking.
In addition, I offer hypnobirthing and sleep enhancement sessions.
Every client's situation is unique.Tell me what you want help with, and I will be happy to discuss whether it is something I can usefully work with you on changing or improving. Alternatively, I will do my best to point you in another direction.
It is so important to choose a therapist you feel comfortable working with. Contact me now by email or phone and sound me out.
