What is Hypnosis?

The power to understand As a hypnotherapist I have been trained in the art of suggestion. Being in a state of Hypnosis is not the same as sleep. We are always learning, changing and adapting to new things and when you engage the use of active suggestion it becomes a powerful tool to help break habits and negative belief patterns that may have been stopping you from getting what you want in life. As soon as you begin to address the issues I will begin to work on how you see and feel about it and what you want instead.

What will you experience?

When people visit my Wellington hypnotherapy clinic, I often start the session answering questions about what hypnosis is, this is the best way to explain what you may feel. Many people experience a feeling of heaviness or you may feel as if you are floating or detached from your body. You will still be aware of the sounds in or out of the room everything seems clearer. Whatever you experience it is a wonderful way to explore the depths of your subconscious mind. When you are in this state you are very aware of your thoughts and feelings and you will still feel like you are in control. The job of a hypnotherapist is to guide you through a learning experience.

Hypnosis helps you to uncover and understand what motivates you. It also helps you to identify any areas that need to be explored through the power of your imagination (subconscious mind). Your subconscious mind can be very creative, and learning how to use self hypnosis properly can be a very rewarding and a powerful tool.

Change your negative patterns into positive and motivating patterns by learning how to be the master of your mind. You experience the power of being open to suggestion (self hypnosis) all throughout the day, for example, when going to sleep when waking in the morning, before you open your eyes, when day-dreaming, when using your imagination or visualisation. As a hypnotherapist it is my job to guide you through this positive and relaxed form of therapy and teach you how to effectively use your thoughts in that most positive way. But just remember you are always in control.

What is Life Coaching?

Life coaching is a wonderful way of helping you stay on track with different areas of your life. As a clinical hypnotherapist, It has been a role that has naturally evolved as different people have come in wanting to have ongoing help to achieve goals, and as soon as they have achieved those goals it natualy follows that new goals are then created, having someone to work through these changes can be an effective way to create a life that is balanced, so you stay awake to the opportunities that come to you.

My job has always been to listen to what a person wants, and to assist them in achieving that. If there are emotional blocks that are stopping you from achieving your goals then I will help you move past that block. When I do life coaching it is not necessary to use hypnosis but I do find that is a wonderful way of reinforcing everything and bringing clarity to a situation. Some of my life coaching clients have a coaching session once a month for an hour, and some once a fortnight depending on how they want to work with me. From time to time I have conducted sessions on the phone when it has not been possible for them to meet with me in person. I do prefer to work face to face.

Life is full of new opportunities take that step forward and fill your future with happiness and joy.
