Hypnotherapy Stoke on Trent

“The Past has brought me to my present”

Welcome to Bright Butterfly hypnotherapy Stoke on Trent, my name is Joanna Cook Dip Hyp (CECC) and I am a qualified and registered Hypnotherapist and Coach based in Biddulph, Staffordshire.

I am a professional member of the CNHC and APHP with a diploma in Hypnotherapy & Coaching. I have always been interested in personal development and personal growth and followed this passion throughout my career.

I became a manager at the age of 18 in the shoe retail business after a completing a 10 week management course in Wigan in the days when Rick Astley was in the Charts. I progressed from shoes to food retail and spent 18 years of working in Human resources and Learning and development roles.

I have believed in change myself and took big leaps of faith to take new directions and challenges. Life’s challenges, health issues and traumas have now brought me to working in hypnotherapy Stoke on Trent and coaching. My partner had an accident at work and was seriously injured, I struggled with back pain too and had recently lost my dad following an short illness with cancer.

During this difficult period my weight had increased due to health problems, pain and depression; I was struggling to exercise, eating and drinking when emotional and so on. It was not only very frustrating; the additional weight was affecting my health even more. I lost confidence and felt anxious especially when travelling or going out. And at one point it became very difficult to do my job.

Then I discovered hypnotherapy stoke on trent and experienced the influence of the human mind and its effects on the body. I learnt; that I could let go of anxiety, negative emotions and be healthy and confident and at ease with myself. Just learning to relax reduced my pain.

I am now 2 stone lighter than 2 years ago! I found that I wasn’t feeling deprived of food at all – I was eating exactly what I wanted when I wanted it. By listening to my subconscious mind I found that I only wanted the things that were right for me, and in the right quantity. I have a different relationship with food, especially with chocolate.

I can take it or leave it and it does not really matter. It’s great and I am thankful for this as it has been a major contributor towards my weight loss and improvement in my health from hypnotherapy stoke on trent. I believe that on our journey through life there are at times when we need to make a transformation, in how we look, feel, think or change what we do. It takes courage, and focus and a little bit of support. But we have to believe we can do it first and this is where hypnotherapy stoke on trent.
