My name is Joanna Edwards and I have trained and worked in the healing and helping therapies for nearly two decades now. I have trained in many theories all soul-based and well-being in approach offering you, the client, to be fully assured of receiving the right help you need and deserve.
    I firstly trained as a Humanistic Person-centred Counsellor as I always knew my future was a one where I could help people as I have always held the belief that people can be what they dream. I studies for three years, first year training solely in person-centred counselling then a further year with the Transpersonal model, this opened up my eyes to a different approach, and finally the last year Humanistic Counselling and got my diploma.
    After this studying I found I felt something was missing still so I went on with my soul journey and found a course. Healing as an energy therapy and what I found was there was a more healing, spiritual way of working. I trained for a number of years with the National Federation of Spiritual Healers and continuing on ‘healing as an Energy Therapy which took my own journey towards working with Earth and Universal energies and moving further down a more shamanic path.
    For many years I worked like this until a few years ago decided it was time again to look further and deeper at what type of work I wanted to do and how I wanted to work in this ever evolving and spiral world we live in.
    Which lead me to the path of Alchemical Transpersonal Hypnotherapy which for me held all the aspects of which I hold dear, it incorporates the whole mind, body and spirit approach whilst being also direct and based in firm scientific and medical research that draws from and integrates a wide range of psychological theories, including; psychodynamic, Gestalt, NLP, Jungian, psychosynthesis, psychodrama and shamanism. It allows much more freedom and helps people see clearly at what is holding them back from fulfilling their dreams and aspirations because whilst under hypnosis the true spiral of the mind can happen allowing for deep analytical work to move them orward on their own personal journey.
    I also studied and qualified in Advanced Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy which enabled me to go even further and deeper into the fascinating and wondrous thing that is our human conscious and subconscious mind. In this training I really felt I went deeper into learning about our base instincts and behaviours.
    Finding and working in the talking and healing arts has changed my life and now allows me to help my clients change theirs, whether it is helping overcome addiction or connecting themselves with their inner child, is a blessing and an honour.
