A Balanced Approach Therapy Centre
I am Joelle, a holistic health and wellness coach who specializes in helping women recover a loving, healthy relationship with their bodies, movement and food.
With so much pressure and conditioning out in the world, most of us grow up detached from our body’s intelligence, eventually leading to adverse experiences later in life - disordered eating, health conditions, burnout, compulsive workouts, a loss in confidence, or chronic pain, to name a few.
Many of us eventually end up at a loss, stuck in unhealthy patterns and can’t see a way out.
If you can relate and are committed and ready for change, coaching would be a great fit for you and I would love to support you along your journey of recovery.
During these sessions, we will work together to explore the root causes of your behaviour, to become equipped with empowering tools & knowledge, and most importantly to receive compassionate support & understanding so that you can be on track towards feeling freedom, connection & acceptance with yourself, your body, food & movement.
To inquire about coaching with me, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or book session with me on the “book now/specific therapist” page.
Other Services I Provide:
Clinical Hypnosis for Anxiety and Stress:
Hypnosis is a very common, naturally occurring state that we experience many times throughout the day. During a hypnosis session, I will help you learn how to direct this state in a meaningful and intentional way to create a valuable physical, mental, emotional or behavioural response.
Appointments are scheduled for 60 minutes but will run between 45-60 minutes depending on the context of the session.
An integrative approach to massage therapy, these sessions focus on bringing ease and balance to the body and mind, I combine therapeutic techniques, deep tissue work and relaxation into treatments depending on each person’s condition and preference.
Some reasons you might come for a massage are:
- Relief from muscle tension, tightness or pain
- You would like to have a space where you can be taken care of where you can relax and connect to your body
- You are on a journey of recovery and/or healing
- Relief from symptoms of anxiety, stress or depression
I am a holistic health practitioner with 10 years of experience working in the areas of physical and mental well being.
The basis of my work is to help others re-connect with themselves and their wisdom. With so much stress and pressure in a society that values constant doing and striving, it brings me so much joy to help others find empowerment and peace by learning to reconnect with themselves and their bodies.
I have spent time in my career working as a personal trainer and health coach, empowering others to develop a healthy relationship to food and their bodies, a massage therapist, sharing the medicine of slowness and rest, as a clinical hypnotist, helping others find new perspectives and I am currently a university student working towards my Masters in Counselling.
I enjoy spending time being physically active, exploring in nature, learning, or spending time with a close friend, family and my wonderful husband.
With a naturally curious mind, I am a committed student to life, always exploring new tools and learning more about the human body and behaviour. Through my own personal experiences, I continue to grow and am always learning more to evolve my practice and what I bring to sessions with others.
