Clinical Hypnotherapy is a combination of Hypnosis & Counselling.  Of all the therapies it produces the most immediate results.  This is because we are dealing with the subconscious mind where habits are formed and stored.   At Mind over Matter, Clinical Hypnotherapy is performed by a qualified Psychotherapist. Your session comprises traditional Counselling, where issues are identified and discussed and then Clinical Hypnosis, where suggestions for positive change are put to the subconscious mind.

No, this is Clinical Hypnotherapy and not stage Hypnotism or TV drama.   Stage Hypnotism is a magic show designed to entertain.  It is the same with TV drama Hypnosis or what you might see in a move.  Clinical Hypnotherapy is delivered by a trained professional and you will be in control at all times.

Clinical Hypnotherapy is a gentle yet very powerful method the assist with real and lasting change.  Clients who attend for Hypnotherapy sit comfortably while they discuss issues they want to address.  This is the counselling part of the session.  Clients then then recline comfortably, experiencing deep relaxation for the hypnosis part of the session.  When you are in this relaxed state, your mind is open to positive and lasting change.

The process of Clinical Hypnotherapy allows you to rest your mind to the point where you become open to sustainable change, free from internal struggle.  It allows you to bypass unhelpful thoughts and impulses accumulated over the years and replace them with new and healthy patterns of behaviour.

Clients speak glowingly of their experience but there is also a growing body of international research that supports Hypnosis as a legitimate scientifically proven method of therapy.  Hypnotherapy offers pain free, drug free solutions for life. There are Doctors, Psychologists and Psychotherapists who practice Hypnotherapy.

Hypnotherapy can be used to address practically any issue you might like to improve or change. Improved sleep, reduced stress, performance at school or work, confidence & motivation boosting, unresolved emotional issues and phobias, losing weight, and quitting smoking just to name a few.

Hypnotherapy works because it ends the struggle between what our logical or conscious mind wants, and what our subconscious or emotional mind actually drives us to do.

YES.  Each program includes take home audios to entrain or ‘rewire’ the brain. These audios were professionally recorded and have been engineered to induce deep relaxation and create positive change while you sleep.  Clients are constantly telling us how much they love these recordings and the positive impact they provide.

This depends on what issues you would like to address.  In just one session, you can experience profound relief from the ‘grip’ of an issue.  Beyond that, it becomes a matter of personal choice.  That’s why we recommend you call us to learn what’s right for you.

RELAXATION COACHING

Relaxation Coaching is about taking or creating a holiday in your mind and letting it completely calm and relax your body.  We guide and teach you how in this 3 session program.

The aim is to relax your body and mind to the point where you can go about your everyday life feeling calm, resilient and in control.   It is very much like having a spa for your mind.   Each session includes a take home audio that guides you on your mind ‘holiday’.  The audio series is called:  “Holiday for the Mind”.

YES.  We offer individual sessions.   Learn how to create that mind body connection to your benefit and call upon this ability at will.

MINDFULNESS

Mindfulness is result of focusing on the present moment. Because mindfulness practice delivers such profound results, we use and teach mindfulness practices in all of our sessions and programs. We want you to deal with any situation that comes your way in calm, confident and self-assured manner. We want you to feel grounded in the present moment and empowered to live life on your terms.

You can build mindfulness using a lot of different strategies, and it will have a good impact on your physical and mental health. People who are mindful:

  • have decreased depression
  • are less angry or moody
  • have a better memory
  • are able to learn more easily
  • are able to solve problems easily
  • are happier
  • are more emotionally stable
  • have better breathing
  • have lower heart rates
  • have improved circulation
  • have better immunity
  • sleep better
  • are better able to cope with pain.

Mindfulness training enhances wellbeing because it helps identify, live with and reduce and let go of difficult, painful feelings, thoughts and sensations.

When you’re mindful, you’re able to pay attention to the present moment and not get swept up thinking about the past or worrying about the future. It means you get to enjoy every little moment of life as it happens.  The impact of this on your mental and physical health is incredibly positive.  One of the side benefits of mindfulness is feeling a sense of security and being able to relax as you go about your everyday life.

YES.  We offer individual and group sessions.   Learn from a variety of scientifically proven methods, reduce stress, receive emotional support and guidance and have fun doing it!

I am a Psychotherapist.  I have a degree in Psychology with post graduate studies and qualifications in Resource Therapy, Hypnotherapy, Relaxation Therapy, Meditation and Mindfulness.  I have over 30 years experience  as a Therapist and I’ve helped countless individuals achieve positive change.

I have worked both in the private and public sector and of course in my own business.  You can be confident that you will be cared for in the manner you deserve and you will never be treated as just a number in a waiting room.

I follow the Client Centred approach as developed by Carl Rodgers.   Carl Ransom Rogers was an American psychologist and among the founders of the humanistic approach (or client – centred approach) to psychology.  He believed that for a person to “grow”, they needed an environment that provided them with genuineness (openness and self-disclosure), acceptance (being seen with unconditional positive regard), and empathy (being listened to and understood).  Rogers believed that every person could achieve their goals, wishes, and desires in life.

This is what my practice is all about.

Rogers also believed that without these conditions, relationships and healthy personalities could not develop as they should, much like a tree will not grow without sunlight and water.

I am here to help you find that sunlight and water.
