About me

My specialism is in anxiety and I have hundreds of client hours in this area.

I am open/friendly and highly experienced. Someone who works with both Adults and children. A professional who is proud to be a Cognitive Hypnotherapist. Who specialises in not only anxiety but low mood, low self-esteem, excessive worry/fear, help with depression, phobias and all things related.

My busy practice allows me to tailor make treatment specific to your needs, creating faster, more sustainable results. I work full time which means I have hundreds of client hours experience. It is my job and my passion to help you.

I am here so I can help you change in ways you want to change, through offering unique personalised sessions. This about how YOU want to be.

Sometimes it’s about de-hypnotising you. See my website for more information

I am also a nch (national council for hypnotherapy) Supervisor who likes to help other hypnotherapists, if you are a hypnotherapist looking for support and supervision please feel free to get in touch.

I have therapy rooms in Bradford (Queensbury) and Halifax town centre, which has allowed me to see people from all over West Yorkshire.

I now work on line and see most of my clients via zoom. These days so many of my clients come from recommendations from people who I have helped in the past or other therapists.

Your change may be to stop smoking or lose weight, which are areas of well publicised success for Hypnosis or Cognitive Hypnotherapy.

I have also seen many people who have confidence, self esteem and anxiety issues, a large amount of my work is attached to this and is now an area I specialise in. I still see people for other problems like; irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), obsessive compulsion disorder (OCD). Unwanted habits, Gambling problems and stress which shows it’s self in many different ways.

My experience has helped many people overcome phobias such as fear of the dentist, spiders, frogs, heights, flying, belly buttons, blushing, public speaking and more…

Weight issues are mind issues and this is where I can help you make the difference by helping you change your mind.

I have found children respond well to Cognitive Hypnotherapy and I see children at both my practaces. Please call if you would like further information.... 07711 704 585

Here are three examples

Joanne has absolutely changed my life. When I went to Joanne I saw her as being my last hope. I’d been on and off medication for years for anxiety and depression and didn’t ever see myself being able to live my life off meds. I’d tried different forms of counselling and courses on the NHS which may have worked for a temporary amount of time but I always seemed to end up very ill again. I was suicidal and not enjoying any aspect of my life when I first went to Joanne.

She is so easy to talk to and so kind that I felt comfortable talking to her straight away. She used different techniques with me and I’m still not sure how some of them worked but the fact is that I’ve been off medication for well over six months and I’m enjoying my life. If I ever have a dip I know that I have found something that works as within a week or two of seeing Joanne I usually start to feel better.

I can’t recommend her enough. She is so professional and has given me the confidence that if ever my thoughts start to spiral out of control I have something that helps to pull me out of it.

Myself and my family will forever be grateful to this amazing lady. A  Jenkinson Leeds

Joanne is so friendly and makes you feel at home straightaway; I found the environment really calming and was able to relax easily.  I was really surprised at how much more I have been able to achieve from my original objectives; she opened my mind to the possibility that I could change so much more and I have made (and am continuing to) make significant changes to my life.   Very happy with the therapy and would highly recommend Joanne!

Thank you!Judith – Leeds

Hi Joanne, I wanted to say thank you about my fear of the dentist I just wanted to let you know that I have had the problem tooth removed today and although I felt nervous I was much more confident and the procedure was not as bad as I thought. The negative thoughts I had seem to have disappeared I now have a massive smile on my face thank you once again.
