Hello, my name is Joelle.
I am a qualified Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapist based in Bristol and online, helping clients to overcome emotional and psychological challenges and issues such as anxiety, depression, self confidence, phobias, insomnia, PTSD, OCD and many more issues. 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. I am registered with the NCH, which is the leading not for profit hypnotherapy professional association that ensures all practising members are insured.
I am also registered with the AFSFH which has a strict code of ethics and supports Solution Focused Hypnotherapists across the country and worldwide and also the NCH. I attend regular supervision and continued professional development in order to keep up to date with the very latest in neuroscience and the solution focused approach.
Along with raising a family, I hold a first class 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. I also have worked within wealth management assisting clients with their investments and pension products.
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. 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.
I firmly believe that we can take control of our lives and make it better. The power is ours we may just need a little help.
