Is Hypnotherapy for me?

Have I had enough of trying to manage traumatic or difficult situations in my life?

Am I ready to create changes in my life? 

Do I have an addiction, behaviour pattern, weight issue, anxiety, stress or compulsion that is getting in the way of my life?

Am I overwhelmed and not sure of what to do? 

Am I struggling with a current or old relationship?

Am I having difficulties focusing, concentrating and getting the results I want?

If these questions relate to you, then you may be ready for hypnotherapy.

Why use Hypnotherapy?

It's drug-free, safe and can creates rapid change.  It enables you to work with your strengths, not against them, by discovering the underlying causes of the behaviours you're wanting to change.  It enables you to let go of those recurring negative thoughts and shift the self into a more positive way of relating to the self and others. 

Challenges may come in many different forms - drinking too much, smoking, procrastination.  Or perhaps lack of motivation with loosing weight, exercise or managing a difficult relationship.  Others may be looking to create a deeper, more meaningful life.  You know that feeling - you have everything but are still not happy. 

At my clinic in West End, Brisbane, we work together to get at those underlying causes of the discomfort you're experiencing and do something about them with hypnosis.

As a fully qualified trauma counsellor and hypnotherapist with many years of experience you will be guided to achieve the outcomes you'd like in your life.

Motivated and ready for change but not sure what to do?
If you are at the point where 'enough is enough' and you are really over the particular issue you have been trying to manage, then you're ready for hypnotherapy.  You may want to stop  smoking, let go of alcohol, manage that stress and anxiety or start that weight loss. 

Whatever the issue, the foundation of our choices and behaviours lie in our subconscious mind. Those reasons or choices can be difficult to access with our rational, logical mind but still drive and direct many of the decisions we make, some good and some not so good.  

Hypnotherapy is a combination of hypnosis and therapy. 
The therapy is designed to access and unearth those subconscious drivers, allowing you to release them under hypnosis and replace unwanted behaviours with the shifts and changes you would like to see in your life. The hypnosis works with the subconscious mind to ease these shifts into place. 

What can I use hypnotherapy for?
We all have habits and behaviours created over many years.  Hypnotherapy can be effective in managing areas to do with anxiety, stress, depression, trauma, smoking, weight loss, alcohol, performance, pain, gambling.
It may be that you are eating, drinking, smoking or resorting to drugs to manage some deeper seated feelings.  The best way to ensure these habits, responses and forms of self medication are dealt with effectively is to manage the drivers behind them. Hypnotherapy is about life change.

Can hypnosis and hypnotherapy help?
There are many studies which indicate hypnotherapy can be effective in helping change patterns of behaviour.  Many of those deeper emotional blocks and barriers to change may lie deep within that subconscious mind. Hypnosis may allow access to that part of the mind to create lasting change.
