My name is Jo Wright and I have been a people leader/improvement coach for the last 20 years.
I qualified in Reiki when my middle child Rebecca was born with brachial plexus syndrome. This beautiful, natural healing really helped my child regain the use of her right arm, which was paralyzed at birth. I was taking her to a healer twice a week and decided to become attuned myself so that I could channel the Reiki daily. A year later, I took the level 2 attunement and was able to perform distance healing as well.
My journey with hypnotherapy began around 2010 when my oldest daughter Georgia had some sessions to help her with self-esteem, confidence, and anxiety around her swimming performance. She had such a shift in mindset, and the things holding her back virtually disappeared. She later went on to win 8 national titles in distance swimming from her time in America on a full scholarship at West Chester University, PA.
The hypnotherapist working with my daughter was Dave Wright (picture bottom left), who is an amazing person and was the one who inspired me to learn the skills and go on to help others as he had with my daughter. The rest is history.
I absolutely love a challenge! Picking apart the various issues that have led people to me for help is my strength. My analytical mind starts ticking and doesn't stop until it sees results. If we try something and it doesn't work, we will simply come at it from a different angle. I will do my best to help bring about positive change.
This is my newest venture and is still ongoing. I am studying for a Post Graduate Diploma in Integrative Relation Psychotherapy at the Scarborough Institute of Counselling and Psychotherapy. I have volunteered for 4 years, one day a week at Reflections House in Castleford, which supports people into recovery from alcohol and substance misuse. I assist with group work on emotions, getting vulnerable, and self-awareness, and also provide hypnotic relaxation, which calms the mind to promote healing and improved mental well-being. My time working with addicts has inspired me to become a psychotherapist. I love helping people and seeing the growth as people heal. I wanted to do more of that, so here I am.
