Joyful Mind

What do my clients say?


I had Hypnotherapy with Catherine and it changed my life. It gave me the confidence to go for my dream job, to become a fire fighter. I got the job and I love it! I can’t believe I wasted so much time being held back by childhood hang- ups I didn’t even realise were still affecting me.

Energy Healing...

I had a problem with my eyes, they were very red and so swollen I could hardly open my right eye. After one session with Catherine most of the swelling went down and after the second it was completely gone. I highly recommend her .

Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)...

Doing EFT with Catherine is like having a workout session for your soul with a world class personal trainer. She provides a safe and nurturing environment ,whilst liberating your body from deeply held pain or blocks. I was astounded at how much ground we covered in one session and how she was able to lead me so through each step

About Catherine...

I am a experienced Hypnotherapist, EFT tapping practioner and Barbara Brennan Healer based in Oxfordshire. I work mainly with adults, helping them transform their lives and get to the root cause of their blocks and clear them fast! Whether your issue is physical, mental or emotional I work to increase your confidence and create a real sense of empowerment to help you create the changes you want in your life .

As everyone is different, I believe in an integrated approach to health and well-being. There are many routes you can take, including holistic and conventional approaches, the key is discovering what works well for you.

Possibly due to increasing work and life pressures, I believe a lot of people are existing rather than really living - settling for things or situations that aren't right simply because it seems easier this way; they've got used to this 'rut' they're in; they don't think they have the power to change things, or a number of other reasons. This can lead to people leading a hectic life with little time to connect to their inner values, desires and longings- a life that seems unfulfilling in some way.

I have personally benefitted from each of the treatments I offer, which is why I’m passionate about helping other people do the same. I love seeing that with the right help people  can not only heal, but transform in their own unique way and begin to live the life they actually want to life rather than just settling and suffering.

One of my favourite lines from a song is 'this life is more than just a read through' (Red Hot Chili Peppers) - which I think is a great reminder to really live life to the full!

I greatly enjoy working with people with a wide range of needs, physical and emotional. As Milton Erickson once said… ‘be the best that you and only you can be’. I find seeing people achieve success in the life they want, immensely rewarding and inspiring.

Whether the 'problem' is physical, psychological or energetic, my role at Joyful Mind is to help you become aware of your many possibilities and provide broad support and resources to assist you in making positive changes in your life.

I work within the highest ethical framework, and my aim is always to provide a caring, professional and effective service.
