The following testimonials are from some of our valued clients who have achieved exceptional results following the hypnotherapy session or sessions with me.
I highly recommend Joan for a hypnosis session as I’ve had two sessions with her with amazing results.Tania, Adelaide.
Firstly I was lacking confidence in public speaking and decided to book a session with Joan. Well Joan was professional, and I felt very relaxed, calm and safe in her presence. After my session my next public speaking event went well without me even getting nervous. I spoke confidently and it’s even rubbed off in everyday life with strangers I meet for the first time.
My second session was to fix my addiction to sugar. Again Joan was very professional and made me feel safe. After the session my sugar cravings went back to normal and that was months ago and they are still normal.
I highly recommend Joan and know you will be very happy with her service and integrity.
THE LADY WHO CHANGED MY LIFEAmalia, Adelaide.
Now before I go ahead and tell you how this lady changed my life let me share with you how meeting Joan came about. Anyone that knows me would know that I have had anxiety for a long time and it is also something that touches my family massively. Between my mum, my brother, and I, we have the market cornered on life with anxiety. My anxiety started at a young age. When my parents divorced I formed some type of separation anxiety. Being so young I didn’t quite understand how to deal with it and just pushed it to the side and hoped that it would go away. Unfortunately, this planted the seed of anxiety and over the years it has grown roots and lodged itself within me. I could be sitting at home on the couch or driving to work in the car and a game show would come on. Say for example I was watching Deal or No Deal. I could watch the whole show up until the very last briefcase and then I’d have to change the channel before they open it. My heart would be racing and my hands would be sweating. I could not bare to watch that last briefcase being opened. For me, it was the fear of the unknown, fear of the future. That’s basically how I lived my life, fearing the unknown.
In April I took a turn for the worse. I pushed the person way that I adored more than anything. I was constantly stressing about the unknown and the future which is enough to make anyone leave. Some days I struggled to get out of bed and others days I would spend walking around like a zombie. I felt alone, I felt like I had no purpose, and quite frankly I couldn’t see any light at the end of the tunnel, I was down to the last straw. read more…
Hi Joan, just want to say thank you again for my hypnotherapy session. It’s been over a week and I’ve had no anxiety whatsoever! Can’t thank you enough. xxDeb, Adelaide.
Unstuck’ from the UKLiz, United Kingdom
Thank you for helping me become unstuck! For as many years as I can remember I’d felt as though I was being held back from making a life for myself by an invisible force field. I know it sounds nuts but it felt like someone or something was holding me down and I couldn’t move freely. At times the feeling was overwhelming and I felt incredibly restricted.
Initially I was sceptical about using hypnosis, especially via Skype. I’m not sure what I expected but it was a great experience that I hope to repeat (hypnosis), I felt so deeply relaxed. The journey you took me on was confusing at the time, I couldn’t quite see the relevance. However, over the next few days I keep having epiphanies! I can’t believe how everything I experienced during the hypnosis session was extremely relevant to the ‘stuck’ feeling I was experiencing. On the second or third day after my session that feeling disappeared. I still can’t quite believe it and I haven’t felt that feeling again, just a great sense of freedom. An added bonus was that I slept so well that night, it was the best nights sleep I’d had in months. You certainly have a gift for this area of work. Thank you so much for helping me, you are a true angel xx
I highly recommend this amazing woman, she changed the lives of my 2 adult children. To watch the change in both my children’s lives have been nothing but amazing to watch. Their lives have been changed with a session from Joan. I have been astounded by the difference in both of them to the point where their lives have been enriched with confidence and happiness which have changed both their futures. I cant thank you enough Joan Randell. Keep up the great work and all the best for the future.Debbie, Adelaide.
It takes a very special person to do amazing work as a therapist and Joan embodies this through and through.Scott Jansen
Have you considered Hypnotherapy?Sean, Adelaide
Sharing my experience initially as a skeptic!
I had always wanted to do something about my cravings for sugar, pastries, and desserts and heard that Joan was consulting in Hypnotherapy locally. Not knowing what to expect through a session, Joan chose to focus the session on my greatest addiction – Iced Coffee! Ensuring a safe environment she gradually eased me into a deep state of relaxation. I hope I wasn’t snoring!
Well…, it has now been almost a year since that session and I have not had any iced coffee! In fact, I am not even drawn to it anymore when buying milk at the supermarket or visiting the servo! Thanks so much Joan..
If you have a habit, craving, addiction, or just want to become better at something I highly recommend getting in touch with Joan. It can be life-changing for the better.
I can’t thank you enough for helping me. My life has changed so much after only having one session with you. I thank you from the bottom of my heart.Alex, Adelaide
The world need to know what a gift you have… I was open but unsure. I still refer back to what you taught me in eliminating the negative. I feel more like myself and the whole family has benefited from the wonder of what you did. I am able to cope on a day to day basis, not cured but greatly lessened. I am eternally grateful for your help, It’s been a few months and still going strong… Still not a single panic attack!… You’re a genius.Kerryn, Melbourne.
Joan made me feel as light as a feather… I felt myself surrender to her voice as she guided me to the answers I needed… She helped me eliminate the negativity weighing so heavily on my shoulders and removed my constant fear of not being good enough… She further helped me reconnect with my core values and re-establish my self-worth… She made me feel relaxed and safe and I truly believe I can only go onwards and upwards after undergoing one of her sessions… I cannot recommend Joan enough… Joan got sent to me at a time where I was so desperate for help I could barely go one day without feeling sad… After only a few days since my session, I am already noticing changes and the world no longer seems like such a scary place…Kelsey, Adelaide.
For 4 months I have been struggling really bad with relationship OCD… I felt completely lost and hopeless and I was this person I didn’t recognise… After my session with Joan I immediately felt a HUGE weight lifted off my shoulders… After 4 months of obsessively checking the rightness of my relationship all of it was gone in a few hours… I felt light as a feather and could not find my anxiety or the need to check my feelings like I usually do… She has given me my life back and only a day later I feel like she has provided me with so much release and has freed me… She is absolutely amazing at what she does… This is completely worth it and saved me from an endless cycle…
I came to Joan for hypnosis treatment for extreme anxiety.. My anxiety was at its worst and was there all day, every day which was horrendous to live with and made me impatient, angry and fed up… Trying to function normally for work and at home was extremely exhausting and taking its toll on my body and mental health… Since having the hypnosis from Joan two weeks ago I haven’t had one bit of anxiety since! Nothing at all ! I sleep better and the little things don’t bother me anymore… It really was an amazing experience, very comfortable and extremely relaxing and absolutely worth it… I’d advise anyone to try it because it really has helped me tremendously.
I took the first step and admitted to myself I needed help. Then I took that second step and asked for help. I wasn’t really sure if seeing a hypnotherapist would work but I had to try something… Anything.. I’ve had panic attacks and suffered from anxiety for almost 40 years. Everyday is a struggle… Everyday its hard… I felt like I had no choice and no control… I’m always angry and depressed but anxious and overwhelmed at the same time. Id also picked up OCD traits so I became more frustrated… I finally went to see Joan and our session went very well… Straight after I felt very relaxed and comfortable… It was a very calming and rather pleasant feeling. I felt that id found a lot of negativity and stress and buried it elsewhere… I feel great, alive and I haven’t been anxious since… My OCD has also gone out the window. I’m actually smiling again. I have found my voice and I’ve learnt that you also have a choice… I cant thank you enough… You’ve given me my life back… I’m a believer xxx
Before going to Joan’s hypnotherapy my mind was clouded with depression and anxiety. Thanks to Joan’s hypnotherapy we were able to work through some underlying issues and along with re-centering my mind and spirit, also releasing energies no longer serving me. I felt comfortable and
I am feeling so calm, content and secure that I don’t know myself at times. It has been so long and painful… I am having to remind myself what it feels like to actually be ok, happy and laugh. I can watch something or have someone tell me something and I still feel their pain but I don’t get into it or cry like an emotional wreck. My brain is not full of crap anymore, my inner critic is less noticeable and I can think about things in the future and not feel scared or fear. I honestly can’t tell you how much better I feel- I have had some tears but they don’t consume me anymore. I cry, let it out and then move on. Even writing this makes me
I’d been anxious and depressed for a while, then I got PTSD. I couldn’t leave the house and was having a bad panic attack. Waking at night really stressed out. I tried to go out but it was horrendous, panicking, feeling so nervous. Then someone suggested I speak to a hypnotherapist. I was so scared of the unknown but as my daughter said, “you can’t carry on like this’. I got in touch with Joan, it was so different from what I expected but what a great experience… I felt so relaxed. I haven’t looked back since. I’m getting stronger every day, getting back to the old me. Thank you so much, Joan, I would definitely recommend this to anyone and I tell all of my friends. They are shocked and can’t believe that in a few weeks what a different person I am.
Julie, United Kingdom
Hi Joan, I just wanted to thank you so much for
our session we had yesterday… Recently my anxiety and panic attacks have gotten to a point that I’m unable to control them myself. I have previously used mindfulness and different techniques which used to work fine. I have often thought about hypnotherapy and to be honest, I didn’t really believe, I was sceptical. I guess that’s from social media and tv shows that make people cluck like a chicken but I must say I felt I had control the whole way through. I felt so relaxed and was aware of everything. I just followed your soothing voice and felt so relaxed, there was honestly nothing to fear. I felt like skipping out of our session like I didn’t have a care in the world, I slept really well too. Today I feel different, its hard to explain but I would be more than happy to recommend you and urge anyone who is contemplating giving hypnosis a go to do it. There is no need to suffer by yourself… Onwards and upwards for me Joan. Thanks again, you are a treasure.
The healing journey is a very personal experience. Joan assisted me with grace. I lived with depression on and off for a large portion of my life. I would find something that would help me move forward for a while but fall back into turmoil again and again. As soon as I saw Joan’s Facebook page I knew that was what I was looking for. The journey I went on assisted by Joan was both an emotional and physical one as I felt the pains in my body physically unravel. Joan truly has a gift. Things that bothered me before the session hasn’t bothered me since. I can now look forward to a much brighter future. Thanks again Joan, much appreciated.
I saw Joan at the recommendation of a close friend who had an amazing outcome from her session. I never thought to try an alternative form of therapy but after spending the time with Joan I am incredibly grateful that I did. Joan is extremely gifted, empathetic and a relatable hypnotherapist which adds to the whole process. Before my session I had been feeling lost due to ongoing anxiety, however shortly after, I felt a sense of liberation. I finally feel like I have control of my anxiety and that I was gifted the tools to ensure ongoing improvement . I wouldn’t trust anyone as my hypnotherapist like I do after seeing Joan.
I just wanted to take some time to thank Joan Randell for making a huge difference in my life. I came to her with a few years of depression, PTSD and anxiety. It paralysed me at times to the point my quality of life diminished. I lost all the rich colours that made my life worth living. Joan was one of my last hopes that someone could help me to start to move forward. While I was relaxing Joan talked to me and I could see all kinds of warm colours. I felt love and warmth. Within a couple of hours I felt the darkness lift. I saw a wild rose and a bumble bee. The bee was going about its business , my mind was reworked , rewired if you will. Its been a couple of days and I’m still feeling great. I can get up and take care of things. I have very mild anxiety but I can control it. It feels so good to “bee” coming who I’m supposed to. I would highly recommend Joan… She is a life saver…
I have been to see Joan twice now for Hypnotherapy and from what I have experienced it is absolutely amazing. Late last year I was going through a really rough patch in my life so I decided to try hypnotherapy to see if it would help. Straight away I felt so much better, my anxiety wasn’t as bad, fast forward to the middle of this year I decided to go see Joan again to help me with some other things I was struggling with. Since seeing her I have felt better than I have ever felt before. She has helped me so much. I would highly recommend her, she is amazing. Yes, when I first thought of doing this I didn’t believe it would work but I know after getting it done twice I now know that this 100% works and I would recommend it to anyone who is struggling and who needs help. This is a much better experience than having to take medication and Joan is such a lovely person, she always makes you feel safe, welcome, and most importantly she made me feel very comfortable.
Over a year ago I approached Joan in regards to my 16-year-old daughter who was in a really scary dark place with anxiety/ depression… I felt helpless watching her struggles. Doctors wanted to put her on medication so I was desperate to find an alternative as medications can cause even further issues. After researching alternatives and looking at reviews I decided to organise hypnotherapy with Joan. Although skeptical I was desperate to get my daughter help. After 1 session with Joan, my daughter walked out a different person, smiling and positive. Hypnotherapy hasn’t removed all anxiety but over time it has helped tremendously, coping with the pressures of year 11/12 and life in general. My daughter says it’s like a weight has been lifted off her shoulders and she has come so far. My daughter has recently returned to Joan for help with weight loss and has been successful in losing weight already… Can’t wait to see what the future holds. Please try hypnotherapy, it was the best decision we made. You have nothing to loose and so much to gain.
When I went to Relax Hypnotherapy I was ready to have my life back. After going to have Hypnotherapy I came out feeling lighter, happier, and tired. I had it done on Monday as I went for Anxiety. I can tell you, this was worth every cent. I have had no anxiety and I have slept through the night which I couldn’t do before. I am so glad that I feel better… Thank you Joan.
I met Joan 18 months ago for a hypnosis session for anxiety. I had tried other hypnotherapists but they didn’t compare to Joan’s confidence, compassion, genuine determination to help, and the time her session went for! She spent hours until her work was done. I’ve never had anxiety since! It is a very pleasant, peaceful, and comfortable experience that changes lives. I have recently had another session for another struggle and once again the experience was beyond amazing. Joan has a way of creating such a safe friendly space and the after-effects are so energized with self-power and self-confidence for future changes. I’m grateful to have crossed paths with Joan and I recommend her services to anyone wanting to break free of anything self-destructive or anything that holds you back.
Joan is the best therapist for hypnosis. Not only does she work through your struggles but she also takes the time to learn about you and find out what makes you tick. I spent years of my life working through anxiety and trichotillomania with CBT through counselors and psychologists but nothing seemed to work. My last resort was to attempt a session of hypnotherapy. Initially, I was skeptical, I didn’t understand how hypnotherapy worked, and was fixated on the idea that if nothing has worked so far then nothing will ever work and I think I grew to accept that. Words can not even describe the freedom I now feel over my emotions and urges. During the session, I felt like I was meditating but the feeling was much, much deeper. During the session, I felt so light that I felt like I was floating. In my mind, I would visualise myself replacing the pulling behaviour with going to the gym and organising my routine, which were the two things I originally struggled with and added to my self-destructive behaviours. Joan encouraged me to dig deep and find the issues I was struggling with. She gave me tools, wisdom, and kind words that I will keep with me for the rest of my life. After the session, I was super tired and had a three-hour nap to compensate for the exhaustion. After I woke up I was surprised to feel the urge to go to the gym. Then when I came home and relaxed in my room, ( a time where I normally pull), instead I found myself wanting to organise my room. Through Joan, I learned that I have control over myself and my emotions and that I have all the tools I need to cope with anything that life throws my way. You aren’t just a client to her, you are a valued person. Joan also makes an effort to keep in contact with you following your session. I cannot express how this woman has changed my life and I would 100% recommend her to anyone needing some guidance or help. Even if you think you have tried everything, I highly encourage you to reach out to Joan and give it one more go.
Well, what can I say but thank you Joan. I had my session on Wednesday. Thursday I can feel a shift in myself and Friday I feel like a new person. Those closest to me can see the change. Having had a positive experience with Hypnotherapy 11 years ago, I decided that this could again be my answer, but this time in helping me deal with some past hurts and upsets that were getting me down, making me angry, uptight, and generally unmotivated, flat and miserable. I got a good vibe from Joan when I called to inquire and decided right away that she was the person I was going to see. Joan offered me a warm, welcoming, understanding, and safe environment where I felt comfortable to express all the details I needed to and at complete ease to go through with the hypnosis. I am sad that I only needed the one session, as that means I have no reason to visit with Joan again. She will always have a special place in my heart, I have nothing but gratitude and love for what she has done for me. The mind is so incredibly powerful. My suggestion to anyone contemplating Hypnosis is to go into it with a positive mind, positive that this will help achieve what you want it to. You won’t be disappointed you tried. Enjoy the session and then better, enjoy the results.
