Hypnotherapy - NLP - Coaching - Speaking & Training

90-95% of brain activity is in the unconscious mind (sometimes called the subconscious mind).  All permanent change occurs in the unconscious.  If only 5-10% of brain activity is in the conscious mind, is it any wonder that we can consciously know why we want to change something eg get rid of an unwanted habit or irrational phobia yet we cannot make the change by ourself?  The conscious brain activity is just the tip of the iceberg sticking out of the sea.

No one really knows how hypnosis works yet there are thousands of case studies showing how hypnosis has been used to effect positive change.  Some results have occurred after years of unsuccessful or limited results by doctors or mind therapists such as psychologists, psychotherapists and psychiatrists. 

Hypnosis bypasses the critical factor, the doorkeeper to the unconscious mind.  Hypnotic trance is a perfectly natural state which we all experience to some extent when driving a car, being engrossed in a film – physically present but somehow far away.  Children live in this daydream state which is why they respond so well to hypnosis, even with their eyes open and moving around.

“…hypnosis is not mind control. It's a naturally occurring state of concentration; It's actually a means of enhancing your control over both your mind and your body.”

Dr. David Spiegel, Assoc. Chair of Psychiatry
Stanford University School of Medicine,
-Jane Pauley Show 9/04


As a hypnotherapist, my intention is always to help you and feed you positive suggestions which the unconscious mind stores and takes action on to achieve the results you want.

Hypnotherapy can help in many areas of life, some you are probably not even aware of:

-          Stop smoking
(My smokers generally stop in one session and remain non-smokers.)

“Hypnosis is the most effective way of giving up smoking, according to the largest ever scientific comparison of ways of breaking the habit.” -New Scientist, 10/1992


"I was relaxed but consciously aware of my surroundings so I found it hard to believe that hypnosis would work after just one session.  But I was very impressed.   I thought it would be difficult but I found it relatively easy to stop smoking.  I am not troubled by other people's smoking.  I used to enjoy smoking but now I enjoy not smoking.  I quickly found I can breathe more deeply and have noticed two other health improvements.  After four weeks, I am still a motivated non-smoker."  
- James Benn, Brussels

-          Improved confidence and self-esteem
-          Learn self-hypnosis for stress management
-          Weight loss, increasing metabolism, desire to exercise

“With weight loss the evidence is conclusive...hypnosis does help people reduce.”

-           -Smithsonian Magazine, 3/1999

       -          Unwanted habits eg nail-biting, thumb sucking, hair pulling, blushing,                 self-harming, stuttering, nervous cough, gum biting, 
       -     Addictions eg alcohol, chocolate, drugs, medications, computer games

“Hypnosis seems helpful in treating addictions, and the depression and anxiety associated with them…”  -Psychology Today, 9/1996


-          Life skills eg motivation, persistence, patience, forgiveness

-          Negative emotions eg perfectionism, anger, jealousy, emotional baggage

-          Irrational fears & phobias (the list is endless!)

-          Re-program the mind for prosperity and wealth creation.

-          Stress-related health issues eg panic attacks, high blood pressure, irritable bowel syndrome, skin conditions, insomnia, anxiety,

-          Pain control, preparing for surgery or childbirth

-          Improved sports performance (It’s all in the mind.)

-          Public speaking, business skills

-          Children 7+  – confidence, defiance, bed-wetting, concentration, safe sleeping, coping with divorce

-          Relationships – attracting love, moving on, unrequited love, rebuilding trust

-          Sexual problems – premature ejaculation, impotence, penis enlargement, vaginisimus, frigidity, increase libido, breast enlargement, healing after rape or child abuse, pornography addiction

“Hypnosis can help …a growing body of research supports the ancient practice as an effective tool in the treatment of a variety of problems, from anxiety to chronic pain.” -Newsweek, 9/2004


"I am writing to thank you for all the help that you provided me with during the hypnosis sessions. It has been a truly life-changing experience and has allowed me to explore parts of myself that I never thought possible."
      - Goran Kovacic, Brussels

I use various forms of induction to lead you into trance.  It is not necessary to obtain a deep trance in order for hypnotherapy to be effective.  You will obtain the level of deep physical and mental relaxation that is right for you and find that this deepens in subsequent sessions.  I may use Ericksonian Hypnosis (metaphors which work in the unconscious mind), Clinical Hypnosis, regression to a previous event or time in your life (or past lives), visualization or combine the work with NLP and Time Line Therapy.

I also believe in the Law of Attraction which became popular with the film “The Secret” but makes sense.  “What you think about and what you thank about is what we bring about”.  – Dr John Demartini

“The Soul never thinks without a mental image”- Aristotle

Some people are better at visualizing than others because while we all use the five senses (if we are blessed with all five), we tend to use one more dominantly than the others – visual, auditory or feeling, also known as kinesthetic.  The language you use at a hypnosis session along with other quick tests will tell me which is your dominant sense and therefore the one most useful to you in therapy.
