What is Cognitive Hypnotherapy & NLP ?

Around 90% of our thoughts, feelings & behaviours are driven by our subconscious mind. Out of our conscious awareness, our brain is continually looking for matches between now and the past, to protect us and anticipate the future. If the the brain makes a match to a negative past experience, we become flooded with the protection response (fight, flight or freeze). Often, our unwanted emotional reactions or patterns of thinking & behaving reveal what we need to heal from our past.

Cognitive Hypnotherapy is a solution-focused, brief therapy that helps change unwanted subconscious patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving. Until you become conscious of these underlying patterns you will often feel stuck, reactive or emotionally triggered in your life. It then becomes possible to update and rewire the subconscious mind with your desired outcomes and solutions.

Cognitive hypnotherapy differs from traditional hypnotherapy schools in that it believes trance (or hypnotic) states to be a naturally occurring state of mind. For example, when you daydream during that meeting or getting lost in your thoughts while driving. A trance state is also a natural state of relaxation where you can access the subconscious to make positive and transformational changes, all without any swinging watch in sight!

It also avoids the one size fits all approach and provides bespoke solutions by considering the client’s model of the world, personal goals, values and needs. It integrates the theory of; positive psychology, neuroscience, evolutionary psychology & neuro-linguistic programming (NLP).

NLP uses techniques to help you understand how you came to think, behave and communicate the way you do and learn to manage your emotions. You will change the way you think and learn which can help bring more positive behaviours and successful goals and achievements.

"Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate."

Carl Jung

What is Emotional Freedom Techniques (Tapping) & Matrix Reimprinting?

Emotional Freedom Techniques (Tapping or EFT) is the most well known and researched energy psychology method. The latest neuroscience findings show that stress & trauma affect a person's body-mind system. It combines principles of cognitive & exposure therapy with somatic stimulation.

EFT is often called emotional or psychological acupuncture without the needles and works with the mind, body & emotions in an integrated way. It is effective as a stress management tool and it helps with healing negative past experiences or trauma, stress and anxiety and transforms limiting core beliefs.

Integrating psychology with Chinese medicine it involves lightly tapping on various body acupoints and balancing the body-mind system that becomes disrupted through negative memories or experiences. The technique is easy to learn, gentle and ideal for self-help.

Matrix Reimprinting is an advanced version of EFT. Created by Karl Dawson, Matrix Reimprinting is a powerful means to discovering the root of your fears, beliefs and anxieties, and the specific memories where these were created.

How Does EFT Work?

The research demonstrates that EFT appears to affect the amygdala (stress centre in the brain) and hippocampus (memory centre), and both play a role in the decision process when you decide if something is a threat. Meridian acupoint stimulation deactivates the brains arousal pathways, calming the stress response and restoring emotional regulation.

EFT has also been shown to lower cortisol levels, which is the stress hormone. Too much cortisol can result in lowered immune function and ultimately affect our physical health.  EFT/Tapping is a tool which is practical, hands-on, and easy to apply, it is a unique way to assist people from all walks of life and it has an immediate calming effect.

What is Transformational Coaching?

Transformational coaching is a conversational approach that facilitates a journey of self exploration and change. It has both a goal-orientated and psychological focus that moves you from where you are in your life to where you want to be. It explores your beliefs, values, expectations, assumptions and psychological patterns. Through this awareness you can unlock transformative shifts, break down the negative patterns or beliefs and achieve the outcomes or changes you'd like to see in your life
