My aim is to provide positivity, balance and relaxation to all my clients whilst helping them to change or manage their symptoms, motivating and supporting them all the way. I give 100% to all my clients, and when they give 100% too this is where maximum and great results are achieved.

Further information

So.... where did I come from and why do I have a passion for this work??

A good few years ago, I was very, very sick, facing a transplant. I was suffering from hallucinations and getting very confused due to the toxins in my body. I had to be really focused and extremely positive. I have been left with chronic health issues and I face these daily using Hypnotherapy techniques, I know first hand that they work for me. I want this to inspire everyone who reads this, things are achievable if you want them to be. I am getting on with life the way I want to and achieving the goals I set myself. You too can do the same. ‘Think Positive.....Be Positive.’

Some great hypnotherapy feedback from my lovely clients:

'The progress made in the 4 sessions I have had is phenomenal. I am so happy with where I have got to. Joanne is A-MA-ZING! The whole experience is so relaxing from start to finish. I feel like I am the only person who exists when I am with Joanne and although she makes me accountable to her she doesn't judge and doesn't put any pressure on me.'

'I really wasn't sure what to expect with hypnotherapy but after trying counselling for my sons anxiety and not seeing much improvement I was ready to try anything. He was so clingy with me, not sleeping well and just generally not a happy boy. After 5 sessions he is like a different child. He coped fine with me being away for a long weekend, he sleeps well and has so much more confidence. I just wish we had tried hypnotherapy sooner. Thank you so much Joe, you have made such a massive difference to our family and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to anyone!'

'Extremely relaxing and therapeutic sessions which actually made a significant difference to my life and state of mind. I would highly recommend for hypnotherapy for even supposedly insignificant problems. Many thanks.'

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a hypnotherapist's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the hypnotherapist to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
