About Joanne Ritchie

Hello, I am Joanne Ritchie and my role as a cognitive hypnotherapist it to help people to change.

In my past I have always enjoyed the development of others, to see growth and change.

I started my hypnotherapy journey in 2008 but was interested in it years before, fascinated by the way hypnotherapy and NLP (neuro lingusitc programming) works on so many levels to bring about change.

I am open/friendly, committed and experienced. Someone who works with both Adults and children. A professional who is proud to be a Cognitive Hypnotherapist. Who specialises in anxiety, 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 hour’s experience. It is my job and my passion to help you.

I have attend many training courses and in 2017 I qualified to be a nch (national council for hypnotherapy) Supervisor so I can support other hypnotherapists as well as my clients. If you are a hypnotherapist looking for support and supervision please feel free to get in touch.

How can you change?

What comes first for you a thought or a feeling?
Or what are you aware of first?

These are the type of questions I might ask you when you come to see me.

In order to help you I need to find out about the unique you, we are all different.
