JQ Hypnosis began 7 years ago in Birmingham UK as JQ Therapy: a collective of clinical and holistic therapists working in the UK, Europe and the Caribbean. JQ Therapy doesn’t operate in the US but if you see references to JQ Therapy around, that’s us!
Founder Joanne Davies, originally from Wales, moved to Birmingham UK to study law. She gained her LLB in 2007 and worked in the field of disability discrimination. Facing burnout from this high-pressure job, Joanne sought refuge in martial arts, meditation and nutrition therapy. While delivering workplace wellbeing training in 2010 she discovered hypnosis and decided to study clinical psychology and therapeutic hypnosis to better integrate this life changing practice into her work.
In 2011 Joanne gained her CPPD in Clinical Hypnosis and made the decision to pursue hypnotherapy as a career. She studied for her post graduate degree while working as part of a community mental health team. She successfully gained her PgCert with distinction in Clinical Hypnotherapy from the University of West London in 2013.
By 2014 Joanne had built a successful practice in Birmingham, UK helping hundreds of clients achieve healthy minds, bodies and relationships. Initially psychotherapy focused hypnosis, the business evolved to incorporate a vast array of other holistic approaches.
Joanne Davies continued to study and train: advancing her hypnosis, meditation and wellbeing toolkit from great teachers all over the world. JQ Therapy became well known for creating a truly inclusive space for healing, without judgement. Joanne worked extensively with clients who had experienced ablism, gender identity discrimination or religious discrimination in traditional approaches to seeking help for their interpersonal goals. This led her to an opportunity to consult for big businesses in the city, though she continued to see as many clients as she could. In 2016 she built a network of trusted providers to assist. JQ Therapy integrated a number of alternative practices such as acupuncture, breathwork and bodywork as well as traditional and experimental hypnotherapy.
In July 2018 Joanne moved to New York City and JQ Hypnosis LLC was formed in September 2018.
Joanne Davies and JQ Hypnosis are fully accredited and insured as providers of Certified Hypnosis in the US with the National Guild of Hypnotists and Certified Clinical Hypnotherapy with the British Society of Clinical Hypnosis. Unfortunately New York State does not license hypnosis or hypnotherapy and these services can be offered with as little as a few hours training online. Please feel free to reach out to us if you have any questions at all (also see our FAQs) as even if we are not the best fit for your needs or budget we will ensure you receive a referral to someone who is.
