More on Hypnosis

It's great to explore exciting areas of therapy.

Last year I went to Melbourne to develop my training in hypnosis. I've been using relaxation and mindfulness in interventions for years, and felt it was going beyond, and it was. Into hypnosis.

While you may think of hypnosis as something only in the movies, hypnosis is used in real life to help people with depression, gastro-intestinal disorders and other health problems. Because hypnosis can help people manage and, in some cases, recover from illness, it is becoming a more common part of treatment plans.

Lisa's areas of expertise and interest include grief and bereavement, adjustment to life events, challenges, and change; relationship issues such as relationships with partners, friends, colleagues, or family; parenting issues; adolescent issues; drug and alcohol problems; depression and other mood difficulties; stress management and life balance; and anxiety and anxiety disorders. Hypnosis can extend theraputic interventions in these areas to increase potency.

Hypnosis is also a really pleasurable experience, so immediately counters depression, lack of enjoyment and anxiety.

 

Lisa offers hypnosis for a range of issues such as changing habits, relaxation, sleep, pain, stress management, and general wellbeing. As a psychologist she is well qualified to use hypnosis appropriately, in the context of a broader and comprehensive therapeutic approach.

 

This means that she can assess whether hypnosis is warranted for a particular person or issue, and can advise on helpful combinations of hypnosis and other therapies.
