Joanne RitchieIMG_4009

I have spent most of my working life helping people to improve and achieve their goals and I realised I wanted to expand on this skill and found a passion in continuing to help others through Cognitive Hypnotherapy.

I work full time as a qualified and registered Hypnotherapist. I trained with the Academy of Clinical and Medical Hypnosis, at Leeds University and hold the industry recognised qualification of Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma (HPD) which was the first nationally accredited Hypnotherapy qualification.

My role at Life Balance Hypnotherapy is to give you a personalised, comprehensive treatment and to be your guide, show you empathy and non judgmental understanding with honesty, whilst giving you genuine support, and encouragement. I will help you to make important lasting changes so you can move your life forward.

Being a member of the National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH) and registered with the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council (CHNC) I abide by their code of conduct. I do this so you can have peace of mind that you are dealing with a professional, trained, ethical and caring therapist.

“As a dedicated therapist it is my duty to continue to make sure I keep up my professional development so I can offer you the best treatment that I can. I feel I have found a clear direction with Cognitive Hypnotherapy at the internationally acclaimed Quest Institute at Regents University in London, with Trevor Silvester, where my advanced development continues as a Certified Master Practitioner.  Trevor is an international author and an inspiration to all who train with him. My aim is to use this knowledge and provide you with the most innovative care possible.”

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.

In Cognitive Hypnotherapy every session is unique to everyone I see, and you will always receive a personalised service based on you!

By working with your thoughts and feelings on a conscious and subconscious level, we can work together to get your best results.

I even offer email support between our sessions, so I can help you achieve your goals in the shortest time possible.
