Clinical Hypnotherapy & Counselling in Bedford

About Joanne Waine

For over 20 years I have been I have been caring, listening and helping 1000’s of stressed and anxious clients in Bedford, Kempston, Milton Keynes, Silsoe, Sandy, Hitchin and surrounding areas. Stress is dangerous and can lead to being ill, overweight, high blood pressure, ashamed and guilty.
I can help you to identify your goals and dreams and then help you to achieve them by using your own and new resources and skills and learning how to realise you have far more choices in life than you thought you had. Use your own calmpower to re-write your life.

Almost 30 years ago I returned to England from South Africa divorced and with my four children with total responsibility, financially and emotionally to bring them up. I worked full-time mainly as a PA and also decided to train in a counselling career.

Whilst attending Aylesbury College in 1993/4 I experienced loads of personal growth and obtained the Certificate in Counselling and Theory. I then started on the Open University degree course and worked a volunteer with Milton Keynes Victim Support serious crime team until moving out of the district, from Milton Keynes to Wootton, Bedford.  Whilst employed as the Practice Manager for The Blackberry Orthopaedic Clinic in Milton Keynes I was introduced to NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) and undertook courses in it with ITS (International Training Seminars) and Performance Partnership leading to Master NLP Practitioner (twice), Board Certification as a Clinical Hypnotherapist and, also became a supervisor. The CBT training was at Anglian Ruskin University in Chelmsford.

Specialising is Stress Management; weight loss issues are covered in the Calmpower Hypnoslimmers Programme; Relationship Issues; Anxiety, Stress & Confidence, Insomnia and Phobias. To achieve this I utilise advanced clinical hypnosis techniques in conjunction with Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), counselling, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP – quantum physics how the mind and body work together), Time Line Therapy™, Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT™) and Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reconstruction (EMDR) that have proven results to assist my clients in releasing all resistance to their goals and reaching their full potential.
