Awakened Heart & Mind Therapy

Transformational therapy for trauma, anxiety, self-worth, & changing behaviours – clearing emotions & reconnecting with yourself for lasting change.

Do you feel out of balance with life?

Maybe You……


Feel Stuck & Lost in Life

Life suddenly doesnt feel right, but you are not sure why? You don’t feel fulfilled, feel good enough or deserving, lost your confidence, or have suffered burnout. 


Let Your Past Define Your Future

Holding on to past behaviours, emotions & trauma – believing they will never be cleared. This can be from childhood,  life changing events in relationships & families, eating habits or events in your career. 


Are Stuck in Fear, Anxiety & Negative Emotions

Living in fear of what might go wrong rather than what might go right. A fear of failure & social situations & judgement by others.


Self Sabotage & Suffer From Imposter Syndrome

Suffer from self-doubt, low self- esteem, feel like you dont’ belong & will get caught out.


People Please & Have an 'Inner Critic' Keeping You Safe

You won’t hold your boundaries with people around you & do not step out of your comfort zone because your ‘inner critic’ always talks you out of it. 


Experienced A Life Changing Event

This may be that you are now re-evaluating a career change, relationship break down or something has happened in life and you know to move forward you need to move out of your comfort zone. 


Wanting To Be More Confident or Take Control of Anger & Overthinking

It’s Time To Breakthrough Your

Personal Barriers

To Achieve The Life You Deserve

It’s time to take your power back – heal, rewire the way you think, reframe your emotions and reconnect within yourself for the life you know you could be living.

I inutitvely guide and support you on a tranformational journey enabling you to heal, find inner peace and gain clarity through alignment of the mind, body & soul.

We all search for that inner peace that leaves us feeling free from the programming, anxieties, habits, burnout and trauma that we have collected along life’s journey.

But, if we stay stuck in the same patterns and behaviours we keep repeating the same mistakes.

To truly unlock our future we have to dig into the subconscious mind and release the stories, emotions and fears.  We have to heal and then look forward and move to a place where you can see your full potential in all areas of your life.

Our sessions together will focus on:

Your Mind

To understand the stories, emotions, behavioural patterns and limiting beliefs that are playing out for you. We awaken and re-wire the neural pathways so you can truly understand how your brain works and so you get to decide how you think and make the changes you need for a more fulfilled life. 

Your Physical Body

To release trauma and resistence you have gathered along your journey that can lead to illness in the body when emotions are not expresssed properly. 

Your Heart & Emotions

To align you to what you truly desire, understand your values & to heal past trauma, including from inner child, mother & father wounds. Release your surpressed emotions and reconnect you back to yourself so you can truly see the magic in life again. 

Your Soul & Spirituality

To renew & reconnect your belief in yourself and back in touch with your ‘gut instinct’ to truly trust yourself again. We look at your adverse life challenges & understand how they have given you strength and helped you to grow. We look at what your true purpose in life is. 

Can you imagine having more clarity & confidence in your life, relationships & career?

Reconnect – Awakened Heart, Mind, Body & Soul therapy will give you that path to inner peace, purpose and potential, so you can start to live life more intentionally with a new found self belief.

The Awakened signature framework uniquely brings together mindset, emotions & the mind body connection and will be completely tailored to your needs.

It  takes you on a deep internal journey to make lasting change, as well as give you a toolkit into the future to help you feel emotionally, physically, mentally, and spiritually cleansed.

When we feel like we are stuck or we haven’t dealt with something emotionally we mistake this feeling for being our truth. Actually we need to heal the past, and balance our emotions and look at what’s truly stopping us from achieving our future. 

We all have the pieces of the puzzle within us, we just need a different perspective to be able fit them back together.  When we stop looking for the answers externally and start creating from within, we get to experience lasting change with clarity, confidence and clear direction.  This will truly facilitate a transformation and lead you to live the life you desire. 

The Reconnect – Awakened therapy will enable you to:

– Feel calm, have clarity & be in control.
Feel enough in life.
Clear overwhelm, over thinking & able to see what you want & how to achieve it.
Heal your mother, father & inner child wounds.
– Silence your inner critic.
Be free of trauma stored in your body.
Empowered to make changes.
Be a magnet to attract what you want in life.
– Achieve your goals in all aspects of your life, relationships, business & career.

What Clients Are Saying….

When I came to work with Joanne I had locked away a lot of emotions, I was at breaking point internally!  I have a successful corproate career & couldn’t understand why I couldn’t feel fulfilled. I had experienced a lot of trauma as a child and had locked away what had happened to me.  I couldn’t see it playing out in my current life.

Working through these emotions has really changed my life and caused a massive shift to happen.  I have actually changed my career and have been working with Joanne to work with my team to re-align all of our goals and values in the business!

I came to understand myself on a different level and also that others around me weren’t going to change it had to come from me & I had to forgive myself!  It helped me identify the choices I have & new ways to look at life and now I can freely change all the things that were causing me unhappiness.

Thank you for working miracles!


I wasn’t sure if coaching was really for me, I had very little confidence and felt overwhelmed with life.

After our first session I felt instantly lighter and more in control of my thoughts and emotions. Joanne holds a safe space and is full of honesty, compassion & integrity for what she does.

She guided me back to myself and I overcame the parts of me that I never thought I would believe in.  I came away knowing that I have the inner strength to overcome my emotions & shape my future for the better, healing trauma and negative past experiences.

I would encourage anyone to work with Joanne who has any form of anxiety, hurt or grief, this therapy will help to transform your way of thinking and to really feel at peace and live in the moment.



Having reached my 40’s and suffered with anxiety & weight issues for the majority of my life, I knew I wanted to heal my unhealthy relationship with food and get to the bottom of why this had taken over most of my life.

The emotional freedom I felt from Time Line therapy and the hypnosis tracks that Joanne supported me with between sessions were amazing. I came to learn that my realationship with food was driven by my childhood and that a lot of the anxities I had suffered around this weren’t even mine in the first place. I healed so much of myself during the three months we worked together.

I now feel peace internally and have since gone onto lose wieght and consistently keep this sustained. I am a completely different person in the best way, something everyone has noticed and commented on!

Thank you Joanne for changing my life for the better.

Why Work With Me?

I have been where you are now, I felt lost, not worthy, unlovable and that everything happened to me, not for me.  

Throughout my journey I have faced many challenges that have left me searching for my true identity, and authentic self.

I looked for everything materialistic outside of myself to feel short-term satisfaction – a successful corporate career, nice car, house…….everyone thought I had the dream life!  On the outside I did, on the inside I was far from fulfilled or happy.  I had locked away my emotions and found myself hitting repeat on sabotaging patterns and scared to show my vulnerability and emotions. I thought that was how life was, I just  needed to live with that feeling and carry on and be grateful for what I had.


One day I hit burnout, both mentally and physically, I couldn’t continue to feel the emptiness and needed to be true to myself.  I also knew that if was I was to sustain meaningful relationships I needed to start  with the relationship with myself and stop waiting for external gratification that ‘I am enough’, stop living in victim consciousness and show up as who I am not who I thought everyone wanted me to be.  It  was time to really go internally to learn who I was and how my past has shaped me, value who I am, heal my past and truly feel me again to start living authentically and feeling aligned with life again.

 I tried many traditional therapies on my journey, which made significant but temporary changes, but I needed something deeper.

This is why I formed The Zen Academy, I wanted to bring together everything I have learnt and  continue to learn in one coaching and therapy package.  I have stood where you are now, and I want to take you on that journey to really reconnect within yourself, be guided back to you true self and awaken who you really are to create a strategy for success! 

My mantra now, is that we all have wisdom in our wounds…these are the things that have challenged us, teach us who we really are and where we take our life lessons, strengths and values from. When we curiously look at what these are, and conciously start our healing journey we can transform and remove the blocks that are in our way to success. 

Whether you feel like you aren’t as far along in life as you thought you would be, have what is considered the ‘dream life’ but still searching for happiness, or know there is something emotionally playing out in your life that you are ignoring – I encourage you to take a deeper look and embrace a journey of healing and understanding yourself, as it will be the best investment you have ever made!
