What is Hypnosis?
Hypnosis is a deep state of relaxation during which suggestions are made to create beneficial changes in ideas or behavior. The
subconscious mind controls the involuntary functions of the body,
including habits and things that we do ‘automatically’ - it is fueled by
our emotions and imagination and directs the energy from within. The subconscious mind also contains memories of every single thing that has occurred to us. In
hypnosis the mind is very receptive to new ideas and open to
suggestions which encourage more sensible, balanced or helpful attitudes
to reality. In the clinical setting, symptoms associated with stress or anxiety can be helped; in such cases it is not a substitute for medical treatment, but a very useful
supplement to it. Mind and body affect each other and the person as a whole in benefited by this holistic approach. For some conditions, regression techniques can be used. This may mean re-examining (without necessarily re-experiencing) events which influenced us at an earlier time in life.
By bringing these memories to the surface the subconscious mind is able to discharge the negative effects and can be ‘reprogrammed’ for success.
number of sessions required usually varies from person to person,
however most people feel some benefit from hypnotherapy immediately.

Hi Lyn how are you!?
I just thought I would email you to update
you on my weight loss progress! Since seeing you and starting the detox
in September I have managed to lose around 10kgs!!! I am super proud of
myself and so thankful to you for kick starting my thoughts in a
positive way for me to realise I can actually achieve the goals I have
always wanted! I am almost finished a second detox I decided to do about
a month ago as I loved doing the first one so much! Without you I
wouldn't have ever been able to tell myself I am strong enough to
complete it and have the willpower I needed!
I still haven't met my goal weight but know it's not far away! I'm feeling great, just in time for summer and thank you again!!
