DipAdvHyp, MNZAPH, MA&BSocSc (Psyc), NZ Reg, Certified Hypnotension Practitioner
I have been a professional hypnotherapist since 2003 and a member of the NZAPH since 2002. Subsequently I studied psychology at Waikato University (BSocSc(Psyc) where I later gained a Master of Arts degree with First Class Honours. (This was a bit of a side-line) In 2021 I concluded 400 hours of training in Hakomi psychotherapy. For many years my main interest has been in psychological trauma and in how to help people who had the misfortune to experience it.
In my practice I often see people who suffer from fears and phobias and for health related issues including high blood pressure and anxiety.

What is Hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy is very simply ... therapy or suggestions, given to you while you are experiencing the state of hypnosis. Positive suggestions, in themselves, can have a very therapeutic effect on the mind and body for self-improvement and/or the release of problems.
Hypnotherapy has been likened to meditation, and while both allow you to achieve similar levels of relaxation, there is an important difference: with meditation you are usually attempting to "empty" or clear your mind, letting go of everyday thoughts and worries. With Hypnotherapy, the therapist works with you, giving you appropriate, positive suggestions, while using techniques that will assist you to achieve your goals.
You are aware and in control at all times. So instead of emptying your mind, you are powerfully focusing it on positive ideas and goal orientated suggestions.
What does hypnosis feel like?
Since hypnosis is a natural state of mind, clients are often surprised that they hear what is said to them. You may not feel any different to when you are day-dreaming or relaxing in your favorite easy chair. Usually the overall effect is one of great relaxation - a wonderful break from our stress filled world.
Why Use Hypnotherapy?
Most people live normal, healthy lives, and yet there may be some aspects they may want to change. For example, getting rid of a phobia, reducing anxiety and stress, or removing a habit. Some may want to improve their memory, concentration or self-confidence. Others to manage chronic pain or dental nerves, or have a painless childbirth. Clients often say they have tried using will-power or other methods, but have not achieved the changes wanted. Changes need to take place at a subconscious level, because this is where our automatic patterns, habits and responses are established. This is where Hypnotherapy comes into its own as a powerful and useful therapy.
Does Hypnotherapy work?
Check out the research in this brochure. You may be interested to know that Hypnotherapy was accepted by both the British and American Medical Association in the 1950's.
How many sessions will I need?
Everyone responds differently to hypnosis. You will need to discuss the goal you want to achieve with your Hypnotherapist, who will be able to give you an idea of how many sessions you may require.
Can Hypnotherapy help children?
Yes, it can be very helpful. Children have wonderful imaginations, which can be extremely helpful when making changes with hypnotherapy. Hypnotherapy can assist children with many problems, including bed wetting, confidence and self-esteem, motivation, sport, nail biting, eating habits, reading, study, memory, exam fears, relaxation, anger and coping with bullying, etc.
How can I learn self-hypnosis?
The best way to learn self-hypnosis is by asking a qualified Hypnotherapist to teach you. It is easy and quick to learn. And you can use it to make improvements in any area of your life. Usually in just a few sessions you can learn the self-hypnosis technique, experience Hypnosis, and learn how to structure the right suggestions for your goal. A follow up session will answer any questions and re-enforce the benefits you are achieving.
