GOOD NEWS – Your Brain is ChangeableJuly 22, 2015

Hypnotherapy has historically been well known for its effectiveness in managing pain, assisting people to quit smoking or reduce weight. However, due to the vast amount of research in the field, the effectiveness of hypnosis is now more concretely demonstrated and validated. So much so, that many hospitals around the world have hypnotherapists on staff, especially for pain, cancer, child birth, burns and trauma emergencies. In Australia, many private health funds now offer rebates for hypnotherapy services. Perhaps it is because of this, that hypnotherapy is becoming more prominent and ‘mai...

Re-Wiring Our ThinkingJuly 22, 2015

No matter how hard the past, one can always begin today… These encouraging words were specifically put up for me to see when I recently visited my hypnotherapist friend to have a session. What’s going on with you she says? Inside my head, I’m asking the same question; as a therapist we ‘know’ this stuff however, when it comes to our own lives.. we require someone outside of our own emotional environment to help us to see more clearly. After my session which was about letting go of past demons I found myself feeling a whole lot lighter, more inspired to dust myself and get on with...

Hypnosis for Bed WettingJuly 22, 2015

One of the most common requests when working with hypnosis and children is to help them overcome bed wetting. Anyone who has had experience with this condition can appreciate that the impact tends to be more far reaching than the child. Before considering intervention it is important to have the child checked to see if there are any underlying medical reasons for the issue. Many then utilise bed wetting alarms, medication, pull ups etc. These often help, however if the symptoms persist hypnotherapy seems to be a last resort. It has been my experience that children experiencing nocturnal enur...

Out of the Mouths of BabesJuly 22, 2015

Many of you, especially those with children, will undoubtedly be familiar with the expression ‘Out of the mouths of babes’. It is amazing how young humans can often seem to have wisdom beyond their years. One such instance of this was demonstrated by a 7 year old client, who I will refer to as J. J had a phobia of dogs and her mother had contacted Perth Hypnosis Specialists to see if hypnotherapy may be able to help her child with this intense fear. Her mother shared that J and her had been out walking and saw a dog on a lead in the distance. Without thinking J ran across the road to av...

Resistance to ChangeJune 12, 2015

The old adage – the definition of insanity; doing the same thing over and over again and expecting it to be different. Have you ever wondered what makes it so difficult for some of us to make changes or let go? We seek out someone to help us with pervasive negative thoughts, we are offered an amazing toolbox full of useful tool and yet when it comes to making conscious the leap to change, we resist. I was working with an amazing young woman recently who wanted to desperately turn her life around; she initially wanted to talk about her problem, justify her problem and even laid blame about...

Lets Put Depression into PerspectiveJune 12, 2015

The world has changed dramatically in the last several decades. Certainly many of the changes have been positive and progressive, however, as a hypnotherapist specialising in depression, I share the writings of George Carliln a comedian who wrote about The Paradox of Our Time in History….. in summary.. We have taller buildings, yet shorter tempers; wider freeways, though narrower viewpoints. We spend more, though have less; we buy more yet enjoy it less. We have bigger houses and smaller families; more conveniences, sadly less time; We have more degrees, less sense; more knowledge, th...

Anger in Children and TeensJune 12, 2015

Feelings can be thought of as a voice from within us. Sometimes anger is as soft as a whisper; sometimes it is as loud as a roar. It is an important voice, which can be used as guidance when managing conflict. Hypnotherapy can be used to help children, adolescents and adults alike, to manage their anger, develop more self control, assertiveness and empathy. In this high tech, fast paced world the trend is toward instant gratification and when a child or teenager does not get what they want, the result is often anger or frustration. One of the common uses of hypnosis is to develop relaxation s...

What is hypnosis? Hypnosis is a state of relaxed, focussed attention which occurs in our everyday lives. For example: when you’re playing sport and you’re ‘in the zone’; or the all too familiar ‘highway hypnosis’ when you suddenly realise you’re at your destination.
