Hypnobirthing: Amanda Joy

My name is Amanda Joy. I have been working and studying in the field of complementary medicine since 1999. I started my career working for the NHS, in spinal injuries, my patients were quadriplegic and ventilated. Many reported feeling extreme pain, even with a full break to their spine. My western medical practitioner colleagues simply couldn’t help reduce their pain so I set about researching alternative therapies.


I now offer Traditional Chinese Acupressure massage, Thai massage, Aromatherapy massage, Aroma touch, Indian head massage and Clinical Hypnotherapy. I studied counselling at The University of Aberdeen in 2005 and went on to be a part of a research project on mindfulness at Queen Margaret university in Edinburgh.


I will be teaching a Hypnobirthing course at Ripon Wellness Centre in July, and I am currently offering a mobile service. Over the next few months I will also be running courses on Mindfulness for adults, children and families at Ripon Library every Friday afternoon.  If you are interested in finding out more, about courses or therapies please check out my website and blog.


Many people are now discovering the amazing methods of hypnobirthing.  Hypnobirthing is as much a philosophy as a technique.  It is a rewarding, relaxing and stress-free method of birthing that teaches a mother, along with her birthing companion the art and joy of experiencing birth in an easier, more comfortable and often pain free- manner.   I offer a free initial consultation for clinical hypnotherapy and hypnobirthing.


Vouchers are available.  Why not treat a new mum to be.
