THERAPIST SINCE 1989
I am able to invite you to a Skype session by sending you a link to click on. However, at this time I am not practicing but you are able to use my knowledge from the many pages on this website that may help you with answers that you are looking for.
You are able to send question to me via this site. This is a community service and won’t cost you anything. But don’t just automatically ask – search for your answer under the links on this page and on the articles/blog pages.
If the answer is on this website I will not respond but return a link that you may have missed. Contact Page
Please note that I do not answer the phone as I have hearing problems. When this gets fixed I will update the information on this page. You are welcome to text me and I can text back. However I am unable to use my hearing aid on the phone as it affects the aid, and having tinnitus doesn’t help. You can use my Contact Page which will come to me as an email to which I can write back to you from.
I will only respond if you leave details of who you are and how I can validate who you are, or you won’t hear from me. I will delete your message and block you. There are so many scammers that can bypass systems in place to safe guard me and you. I don’t need that hassle and I want to make everyone aware to keep themselves safe as well. As you can imagine, having put this much work into this website would not be worth the effort if I just wanted to scam you. Some of the information on the articles are quite old, but researching these days you don’t know how valid it is as people get themselves into high places on research sites and pay to have things posted to aid their benefits. So if I post something new you will know that I have done my due diligence to check the evidence from a number of sources that causes me to write that in a post, and at times I would still go with older views as they came from days where we didn’t have so much fake news and censorship that we have to deal with these days.
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 protects you from infection. 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 #Breathing techniques 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 and health practitioner on what works best for you. But don’t forget that they too have their own backgrounds and training that forms their own belief systems that may not be yours, and it is up to you to decide who is best able to help you. #Hypnosis, is a lowered brainwave state to access your #subconscious programming. I did write an article many moons ago to help guide people and the questions they might like to ask a prospective practitioner. I will see if I can still find it I will upload it. I will then put a link at this point that you can have a look at. These were just my thoughts that you can add to that will give you some ideas that may be helpful to you.
#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.” So we are a great contributor to our wellness. As I mentioned earlier, it becomes difficult to know who is genuine or faking who they are.
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. 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…
At the present time I suggest you browse for information you might like to view. If I have written a new article that I have uploaded, I will mention it here with a direct link to that article. I am not here to sell you anything. If that changes I will be transparent in letting you know on this page with details.
- The comment section of the blog articles has been removed due to comments posted by people who are endeavouring to persuade you to link on their websites to access material not designed to be passed on. Many of these websites went against my ethics and I was forever deleting them. Enough was enough.
If you have any questions or comments on any of the articles you are able to go to the ‘contact‘ page to get in touch with me. I am happy to reply to you personally. The dark side of the internet as I call it, has no place in healing and wellness.
