Joana Esteves RTT Practicioner


Hi! I am Joana Esteves, mother of a beautiful little girl, passionate about visual arts, dance, music, nature and the human mind. 


I have a background in healthcare as a certified dental and medical assistant, and I am a health coach, clinical hypnotist and RTT® practicioner. I have always been amazed by the human behavior and the human mind. I help people from all walks of life, on issues like stress, anxiety, weight loss, insomnia, addiction, wealth, relationships, confidence, self-esteem, fobias, sports performance, procrastination and any undesirable patterns that may be keeping them from living at their highest potential.  I absolutely love what I do.


I realized at some point I was not living my life's purpose and needed a change in many areas of my life. From challenging relationships, to financial struggle and career "emptiness", I decided to take a leap of faith and trust my instinct. I said to myself "Enough!"

I knew that I had to something totally different and live from my own dreams and authenticity, to be able to live an outstanding fulfilled life with a purpose, where I could help others heal. I have always loved health and human behavior, and since I was a little girl, people had a tendency to "use my shoulder" to vent and for advice.


This is my call and my journey and I am loving every part of it. I hope I can be part of your healing journey as well.

RTT®, known as Rapid Transformational Therapy, created by the amazing hypnotherapist Marisa Peer, combines powerful, evidence-based techniques to provide people with the tools they need to make positive change.

The roots of RTT® are drawn from within areas of traditional psychotherapy such as gestalt, solution-focused and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), hypnotherapy, neuro-liguistic programing (NLP) and mindfulness. 


Its personalized approach works with clients to help them reframe any negative beliefs, values, habits and emotions – many of which they have carried with them since childhood. Those beliefs and habits of thought are buried in their subconscious in such a way, that often they are unaware of the past issues affecting them.

Our holistic aproach using RTT®, gives the client the potential to alter the way they think and in turn put an end to negative self-talk and behaviors,  aproaching life in a positive way, resolving their issues for once and moving forward towards wellbeing. 


The unlimited power of your mind:


95% of your life is managed by our subconscious and only 5% by our conscious mind. It's very hard to sort out a subconscious belief and habit with our conscious mind. We need to tap into our subconscious for powerful change to happen. RTT therapy is incredibly powerful, fast and with permanent life changing results.
