relationship counsellingRelationships are a huge part of our lives whether we recognise it or not.

It starts the moment we are born and carries on unto we pass over.
We have relationships with family, friends, bosses, work colleagues and romantic partners.

Some of these relationships may be wonderful and easy, others may not feel so easy or wonderful. These relationships feel delicate, hard or unfathomable.

Given that relationships form such a big part of our lives, and the we don’t really get any training for them, is it any wonder that many of them end in heartache?

Albert Einstein said “We cannot solve problems with the same kind of thinking that we used when we created them.”  Therefore we need a different thinking style in order to solve our problems.

We have found that clients know who they are and the sort of things that they would do.  When they see others who don’t do what the client would do, the client can become frustrated, angry or resentful.

Recent brain research indicates that it is possible to talk to our amygdala, a key part of the brain that deals with certain emotions.  This part of the inner mind is concerned with emotion, imagination and memory as well as the autonomic nervous system which automatically controls our internal organs.

Through talking to the amygdala, an experienced hypnotherapist can relax the autonomic nervous system shutting down, or curtailing the trigger that sets off secretion of the adrenal and pituitary glands. This gives the body an opportunity to rebuild its immune system in many chronic illnesses.

When a patient is in a hypnotic trance the amygdala automatically shuts down the rapid alert system and turns off the stress hormones.

Virtual Gastric Band therapy is a safe non-surgical long-term solution to weight loss. This system involves using hypnotherapy to convince your mind that you’ve had the surgery, thereby experiencing the same results as the surgery would.

This therapy was pioneered by Sheila Granger a clinical hypnotherapist from Yorkshire in the UK, the system was originally developed to help her client’s achieve significant weight loss.  Kathy was trained in this therapy by Sheila Granger a few years back when she visited Australia.

Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) is a set of techniques and beliefs that is use primarily as an approach to personal development. It is based on the idea that mind, body and language interact to create an individuals perception of the world and that perceptions, and hence behaviors, can be changed by the application of a variety of techniques.

The purpose of NLP is to study, describe and transfer models of human excellence. NLP explores the relationships between how we think (neuro), how we communicate both verbally and non-verbally (linguistic) and our patterns of behaviour and emotion (programmes.

Over twenty years ago when Kathy was studying she took units in Psychoneuroimmunology and Brain Anatomy as these subjects interested her.

Psychoneuroimmunology (PNI) is the study of the interaction between psychological processes and the nervous and immune systems of the human body.[1] PNI takes an interdisciplinary approach, incorporating psychology, neuroscience, immunology, physiology, genetics, pharmacology, molecular biology, psychiatry, behavioral medicine, infectious diseases, endocrinology, and rheumatology.

Everything is Energey

Energy Medicine is based on the idea that our thoughts affect our physical health. Over the last decade, doctors and scientists have been rediscovering and proving a direct link between our thoughts and our health. In short, our emotions are energy in motion.

Any imbalances in the body’s energy system can have profound effects on your personal psychology and physiology. Correcting these imbalances, which is done by a range of energy techniques, often leads to rapid remedies. Unresolved emotions can be held in the body and cause energy blocks.

If you are stuck in a cycle of pain, addiction, fear or other limiting emotions the energy in your body is no longer in motion. It is stuck and you are stuck.

Energy Medicine uses a range of techniques to change inhibited or blocked normal energy and re-establish the healthy circulation of life energy in the body.
