The human brain is magnificent. Did you know studies have shown our thoughts are extremely powerful:

  • Stress (or negative thoughts) can worsen physical illness
  • Fear can lead to increases in certain chemicals that prepare us through the “fight or flight” response
  • Thoughts start chain reactions that allow us to contract our muscles
  • Your brain fires the exact same cells when you’re performing a physical task, as the cells it fires when you only IMAGINE it. In other words, on a certain level – the subconscious part of your brain can’t tell the difference between visualizing yourself doing something and physically doing it in the reality

This is exactly what hypnosis in a therapeutic context utilizes to bring about change.

Think about when you are watching a scary movie, you know consciously what you are watching isn’t real and can’t harm you, yet your brain and body reacts as if it were true; suspense builds as you tighten your muscles, you get goosebumps, you get a fright… In a therapeutic context we use this exact ability of the brain to apply psychological principles to bring about positive change.

Many famous people swear by hypnotherapy for adding to their success, from sports performance, confidence building to hypnobirthing;  Tiger Woods, Bruce Willis, Albert Einstein, Reese Witherspoon, Kate Middleton and so many more. It is truly an amazing way to use your mind to change your life.

In my practice, I apply hypnotherapy in combination with solution focused counselling to various areas such as:

• Smoking cessation
• Healthy lifestyle
• Stress
• Depressed mood
• Anxiety
• Overcoming fears or phobias
• Grief and closure
• Confidence building
• Anger management
• Optimizing studying
• Sports performance
• Sleep issues
• Positive habit creation
• Psychological wellbeing

"The mind is a powerful force.
It can enslave us or empower us.
It can plunge us into the depths of misery
or take us to the heights of ecstasy.
Learn to use the power wisely.”
- David Cuschieri
