There are 3 types of change from therapy - every person is different:
i. Immediate: You feel a massive shift right away - immediate changes in your physiology, thoughts and behaviours right in the
ii. Incremental: You see consistent shifts every day, or over time.
iii. Retroactive: You don’t see the shifts right away and then one day you suddenly look back and see all of the things that are different in
You may be surprised what comes up in therapy. Even if you think you know the reason, you see it in a COMPLETELY new way. That’s what allows you to change the meaning and ultimately, change your beliefs and perception.

No, that is a common misconception.

Hypnotherapy works by creating a burst of brain waves that are the same as when you’re in REM.
That’s what allows you to access the subconscious mind. It’s very easy and anyone can do it, you’ll see for yourself when you do it too.
If you go back to events that are related to things like sexual , emotional or physical abuse, or other trauma, it’s important to remember that you are not reliving that scene, you are simply reviewing it and that you are safe.
I will support you and create a safe space for you to express your emotions and heal - you will be OK.
I am very adept at communicating with oppressed and marginalised community members, or anyone who may feel that elements of their life make it difficult - for whatever reason - to discuss private details.
I am pretty much unflappable and I do not judge.
