Bright Butterfly Hypnotherapy and Coaching
Helping you to make Changes in your life
Hello, I am Joanna Cook, a Clinical Hypnotherapist Practitioner, advanced BWRT practitioner and Coach. I am known by as Jo by everyone other than my mum.
I started my career in Retail Management at the age of 18, working in the shoe business, I then spent 20 years working in various Human resource roles, the majority of it in retail. During this time, I completed a Post Graduate degree at Manchester and qualified as a “Chartered member of the CIPD” with specialism in Learning and development.
As well as helping teams and individuals to develop; my background in HR, allows me to understand the challenges that you may be facing personally and professionally in the working environment.
Personal development and personal growth have always been a passion throughout my career, I have taken big leaps of faith myself, taken new directions and challenges. The most challenging was to start a business, I have a little mantra that “my past has brought me to my present,” which has really inspired me to follow my path.
So Bright Butterfly, was born on a ‘mood board’ designed by my “business manager, consultant and sound engineer, critic and chief supporter,” Alice, my 14-year-old daughter. We both love the symbol of the butterfly. The joy and colour they bring into our lives, teaching us that growth and transformation can occur gently and beautifully and that it is also necessary.
I understand this deeply, as life’s challenges, health issues and traumas have now brought me to working in Hypnotherapy and Coaching. I have experienced the power of the human mind and learnt; that I could let go of anxiety, negative emotions and be healthy and confident and at ease with myself, situations and life…. And lose weight!
In addition to my experience and qualifications; I believe this life experience enables a relationship of compassion, integrity and flexibility with my clients.
Our big love in life is our gorgeous cocker spaniel, Spencer; we enjoy going for walks either local to us at Biddulph Grange Country Park or exploring a bit further into the Peak or over to Chester.
I am also an Advanced BWRT® practitioner. Hypnotherapy, Coaching and BWRT® can have life changing possibilities for physical and mental problems. Be the Bright Butterfly and Believe in Change.
