THERAPIST SINCE 1989
“As a therapist with my many years in practice, my clients have taught me a lot . I have learnt things you can’t get out of a text book. With 4 years as National Secretary and 9 years as National President of the Australian Hypnotherapists Association and now President Emeritus, this demonstrates my commitment to the profession and helping people find a natural and drug-free way of connecting to health, happiness and wellbeing. I am also a Counsellor/psychotherapist and have other training which you can see by clicking on ‘About’. I have moved to Bowral NSW in the Southern Highlands, however all therapy is now on for the present time. This has been put into place necessitated by surgery of 2 knee replacements on the 5th November 2019. Some rehabilitation problems required checking out with various specialists taking time to get back on track.
I can not practice from home and whilst rehabilitation is going well now, for the time being I will only be conducting Skype sessions. These have been extremely successful, even Interstate and if you wish to avail yourself of this and have not got Skype, you are able to download a free copy from here…
Please choose carefully as on some sites there are boxes ticked that say you allow them to download their internet security etc to override your existing one. It is easy enough by going to the box and unticking it, and also make sure it is the free copy for your device. Use the back arrow at the top of the page to the left of the url to return to this page. I don’t automatically accept new Skype requests so I need to know who you are before I do. Any questions, write to me from here…

FEELINGS & EMOTIONS
#Hypnotherapy deals with feelings and emotions which are a part of our programming and no matter who we are or what our belief system is, feelings and emotions are something we all have in common. Our beliefs and perceptions about things can differ because of our individual culture, upbringing, memories and the things that have happened to us, however, what you believe becomes truth to you. Sometimes that truth turns out not to be truth and it is just something said by others that became our own belief, or something that happened that made us believe that. What really matters when all is said and done is that we live with peace in our soul and love in our heart, and not have anxiety and fear within.
STRESS & IMMUNITY
#Stress can affect immunity in various ways – it can depress that part of the immune system that can protect you from infection and cancer. It can also change our immune system and cause it to attack the body. We know that if a person is feeling good, their immune system can be functioning normally, and also the hormones in their body are likely to be normal. However, if they are not feeling good, it can then increase the chance of illness. #Hypnosis, #Self hypnosis and #Meditation are areas so important for all of us to learn, because this can influence the amount of stress in the body, in fact it has been scientifically proven that they are able to improve immunity and also improve body hormones. It will depend on the knowledge of your therapist on what works best for you. #Hypnosis, is just a lowered brainwave state to access your #subconscious, then you need to know how to create changes at that level to achieve what you want.
#HYPNOTHERAPY IS A COMPLEMENTARY MEDICINE
Hypnotherapy is part of the area of Complementary Medicine. One of the key principles of complementary medicine is the emphasis on viewing the concept of ‘health’ in a different way than the conventional medical model. Complementary medicine views health as not merely as an absence of disease. Instead, health is described as ‘a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being’. In this definition of health not only is disease absent, but all systems of the human body are actively working in harmony to create balance. An individual’s health depends on factors beyond just the physical body. That is, genuine health also depends on the emotional, mental and spiritual states of the body, as well as lifestyle factors such as your surrounding environment.*
THE PLACEBO EFFECT
Investigating the placebo effect strongly supports the complementary medical model of health, which presents the mind and body as inextricably linked. Studies conducted on this phenomenon show that a patient receiving a placebo will, in about 30%+ of clinical trials, show improvement, if not full recovery.* The belief of a patient in the treatment that they receive facilitates the body’s recovery process, demonstrating the effect of the mind on the physical body. By the same token we also have the nocebo effect where the mind believes it is sick and cannot heal and so brings that about. But both demonstrate the power of the mind at the subconscious level and supports the use of #hypnotherapy that deals in making changes in the subconscious. Arthur Schopenhauer said: “The greatest of follies is to sacrifice health for any other kind of happiness.” It is up to us to cause wellness and not wait until we are sick and need medication.
TRUST & FEEL SAFE
It is important that you know that you can trust and feel safe with your therapist and to question if they are able to help your issue. One of the ways of being able to show you that, is for those that have been here to say a few words about their experience. I am grateful to those clients that did allow me to post their thoughts. Please click on the ‘Testimonials‘ link and hear what they had to say. However, please remember that you won’t find issues that a person would not want others to know about. Feel free to phone or email me from the ‘Contact‘ page and ask if I can help you with your personal issue. A client rang me up one time and asked if I dealt with ‘Trichotillomania’. I didn’t know what that label covered and did some research on it. You can read about that client session here…
Educational Portal – There is a lot of information on this site that you are able to access through the links shown to the right of the BBBenefits logo, at the bottom of the header picture and we will be working on an Educational Portal site behind the scenes, so please check back to see what’s new.

- binaural beats/relaxation music
