Hypnotherapy is widely endorsed as a treatment for habit breaking, stress-related issues and for a range of long-term conditions, and in recent years has been gaining steam in the medical world after a recommendation from the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) recognised hypnotherapy as a treatment for Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).
Hypnotherapy is recognised by the scientific community as an effective therapeutic support that can be effective in treating a range of issues, I have listed some of the common ones to the right:
- Fears and Phobias
- Weight issues
- Work Performance
- Sleep Problems
- Sports Performance
- Habit control
- Self Esteem issues
- Sexual problems
- Releasing Emotional Blocks
- Study/Exam stress
- Body Image
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome IBS
At WELLNESS MATTERS your appointment is all about you; what IS working for you in life and you would like to do more of and what is NOT working for you and ultimately, you would like to do less of.
We are all uniquely individual and what one person considers important to a quality life, may not even be on the radar to another.
I work compassionately, non-judgmentally and with years of experience working with people seeking clarity and understanding about life and what is actually at the heart of what is important to them.
Some of us ‘know’ what we want and/or what we want to change, however I have found the most powerful and sustained change occurs when therapy incorporates the work of gaining a deep understanding about WHY something is so important to us.
Our hypnotherapy sessions are completely about You; the values and goals that you identify as important. Our sessions will utilise the deeply relaxing state of hypnosis and the power of positive suggestion to bring about subconscious change to thoughts, feelings and behaviors that are in line with Your goals.
Hypnosis aims to alter our state of consciousness in a way that relaxes the conscious part of the mind while simultaneously stimulating and focussing the subconscious part. The therapeutic suggestions, that You have identified as helpful to your goals, are able to bypass the critical analytical ‘conscious mind’ and are able to be clearly received and accepted by the ‘subconscious mind’. The subconscious mind is more open to new ideas and receptive to positive shifts in thoughts, feelings and behaviour.
Some people have seen stage performances of hypnosis and worry that they may be asked to do something silly or against their will during hypnotherapy. NO, this is definitely not the case! You are always in control throughout our sessions and you will find that you are receptive only to suggestions that are acceptable to you and in line with your hypnotherapy goals. You can not be hypnotised into doing things against your will. You can’t be forced into a hypnotic state either. Instead, you allow yourself to be hypnotised. It is a voluntary altering of your own consciousness, and you are always in control. In other words, you are hypnotizing yourself.
Hypnosis can be likened to using a magnifying glass to focus the rays of the sun and make them more powerful. When our unconscious mind is concentrated and focused, we are able to use it more powerfully to focus on changes and behaviors inline with our goals.
My in-depth and personalised approach allows the hypnotherapy work to be powerful; deeply personal, specifically tailored to YOUR self-identified needs and desires for life change. Hypnotherapy successfully supports numerous behaviour change goals, with treatment goals as unique as the individual’s that seek them.
The number of sessions varies depending upon the treatment goal and any underlying issue. For example: weight loss behavior change goals may take only 1-3sessions, however if perhaps grief, depression or stress related issues are underlying factors. more sessions may be required.
Wellness Matters recommends three sessions as a minimum, with 6 sessions normally considered best to achieve optimum results. Individual sessions and discounted 3 session packages are available.
What people are saying
“I came to Tracy because I was sick of looking at clothes that no longer fit me and not being able to do things with my kids – I wanted to lose weight! From the first session with Tracy I learned so much about myself; what was really important to me and WHY weight was an issue. I found the hypnotherapy sessions amazingly relaxing and I have not only started dropping weight, I have also dropped a lot of the emotional baggage I had been carrying around. I have taken some courageous steps making changes that are actually really important to me as a person. Stuff I hadn’t realized before, but had been holding me back in lots of areas of my life. Thanks Tracy.”
“First timer and I was nervous, but Tracy has a very calm approach and listened to me like I don’t think I have ever felt listened to before. I nutted out a lot of things that had been bothering me and found hypnotherapy sessions fantastic. I had 3sessions in total and left each one feeling less stressed, focused and with a feeling that I can actually achieve my targets. Tracy gave me some worksheets and information that was terrific as well.
“I have had hypnotherapy elsewhere before moving to Sunshine Coast and found it helpful. I really enjoyed working with Tracy towards my goals. I found her approach was extremely personalized which helped me discover some things about myself, which actually helped me understand why my game has been off. Very happy that hypnotherapy sessions have definitely helped with my Golf, plus a bonus for my relationship with my partner, I learned a few things about my game ‘off the course’ as well. Cheers Tracy.
