About me

Hypnotherapy in Bristol.  Sessions can be held online and in person.

I am a Hypnotherapist/Psychotherapist MNCH (Reg) BA Hons DSFH HPD AFSFH. I specialise in empowering people to make positive and lasting changes, enabling them to live happier, healthier and more productive lives.  I studied at the prestigious Clifton Practice in Bristol (see CPHT) and gained my HPD (Hypnotherapy in Practice Diploma). The HPD is widely recognised as the Gold standard in Hypnotherapy.

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy combines forward-thinking talking therapy and hypnosis and is a very modern and up-to-date approach based on the latest findings in neuroscience.    

I use a modern blend of clinically proven therapies such as aspects of Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) where appropriate alongside Hypnosis.

I work closely with my clients, teaching them the essential skills and tools needed to manage stress, overcome anxiety, combat depression and challenging situations.  Please visit my website to see many other issues that I can help you with such as stop smoking, weight management and IBS.  

I also hold online relaxation classes which is a lovely way to allow your mind and body to drift into a state of pure relaxation.  These classes are very effective at lowering anxiety and stress levels, improving sleep quality, reducing pain, and building confidence and positivity.  Please visit my website for more information on this.

Along with raising a family, I hold a BA honours degree and have a background working within Financial Services, where I have managed and built strong relationships with a portfolio of commercial and private banking clients. 

After the birth of my first child 10 years ago, I battled with my own mental health and suffered with bouts of depression and anxiety. Therefore, I have a lot of empathy and can relate to my clients and understand their struggles.  A friend introduced me to Solution Focused Hypnotherapy, and it really helped reduce my anxiety.  It also gave me a better understanding of what was happening in my own mind and how to manage it.  Seeing how effective this type of therapy was and how it resonated with me, inspired me to train as a Solution Focused Hypnotherapist.

please see below a few testimonials from some of my recent clients:

"I was struggling to even complete a days work or attend social events as my anxiety was crippling. I had never had hypnotherapy before. The initial consultation that I had with Joelle was really informative.  Joelle gave me a detailed explanation of the brain. From session one I left with a lovely feeling of relaxation and calmness. After finishing my treatment plan with Joelle I felt like a different person and could go back to enjoying normal activities again. I cannot recommend Joelle enough and have been recommending her to all my friends and family."

"I went to see Joelle as I was experiencing work-related stress and was struggling to sleep. Joelle gave me an explanation of how the mind works in relation to stress and I completed a course of 6 sessions online via zoom. I'm sleeping so much better now and now have all the tools to manage my stress levels. Joelle has changed my life and really helped me to live a more positive life"

"This year so far has been more than a little difficult for me. My OCD had run wild and the Depression and Anxiety took a whole new level of control. I started hypnotherapy 5 weeks ago with an open mind and the willingness to dedicate time for my self care. I can honestly say it has been the best decision I've made in a long long time! Joelle Le Van Hypnotherapy has helped re-establish a sleep pattern, help me feel empowered, positive and relaxed. My OCD is the best it has ever been! My anxiety has drastically decreased and I am feeling the strongest mentally I have been for years and years! If you are struggling with mental health issues I would strongly encourage you to contact Joelle to see if she can help you too. She is super lovely and a fantastic listener!"

I feel so inspired and grateful to be able to help and guide other people to transform themselves, empowering them to feel happier, more relaxed and in control of their lives.  Start your journey with me and discover what you are truly capable of.

If you would like to find out more how I can help you, please send me an email or call me to book an Initial Consultation.

I look forward to meeting you.
