My name is Joan Teasdale and I am a Consulting Hypnotist working in New York City. I also have a Clinical Certification in Hypnotherapy and a Master Certification in Therapeutic Guided Imagery from California and I am a Certified Aromatherapist. I help diverse clients with a wide range of challenges and goals, with a particular focus on people transitioning to a new stage in their lives or seeking to overcome their fears and anxieties, self-doubt, or depression, and emerge from therapy ready to tap their limitless potential.
I’m intimately familiar with overcoming these challenges and transitioning to new life stages—in fact, hypnotherapy is my second career. I spent thirty years traveling the world as a professional photographer, capturing and interpreting images to communicate emotions, situations, and of course beauty to the viewer. In my mid-fifties I went through some incredibly painful changes, and felt like my entire life was falling apart. But I found myself again, felt peace and excitement and happiness once more, with hypnosis and guided imagery. When I saw how powerful hypnosis is, I knew I had to shift my focus and share the incredible impact of hypnotherapy and hypnosis.
And in fact, hypnosis has a lot in common with photography
Both rely heavily on imagery and all the power and beauty of our subconscious minds. After receiving my diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy from the Hypnosis Motivation Institute in LA, I returned to NYC with a light heart, wide open to this new part of my life. I’ve since guided hundreds of hypnosis clients through just about every issue imaginable, including:
- life transitions
- fears and phobias
- grief and loss
- stress and anxiety
- relationship struggles and strategies
- body-image problems (including weight loss)
Born in Vancouver, raised in New York, educated the first and second time around in the West, and having spent so many decades traveling globally, I am able and eager to work with people from all walks of life and corners of the globe. I’d love to help you release yourself from your past and join me on this amazing journey toward self-discovery, success, and happiness.
