My Philosophy

The Mind Image of the Mind

I use a variety of psychotherapy modalities to restore balance to the mind. Creating change is easier with hypnosis, it allows us to create new neural pathways within the brain. With consistent behavioural repetition of new rehearsed responses to previous difficult situations, new neural pathways are established with relative ease. Hypno-psychotherapy, is possibly the most effective Talk Therapy that exists in behavioural medicine. I believe that a Client needs to move gently to a state of empowerment, harmony, balance and ultimately enlightenment. In this state there is a good chance of achieving and maintaining a high state of personal Wellbeing.

The Body Image of the Body

I understand how connecting with the body as part of a greater whole, allows the integration of the personality; that is to unite the emotional, cognitive, behavioural, and physiological systems within the person. The reaction to any given situation is governed by the mind’s overall perception of threat or safety. The Vagus nerve with its sensory and motor pathways is the prime component of interceptors' in the heart, stomach, liver and other organs and accounts for some 80% of the para-sympathetic branch of the autonomic nervous system. Learning to understand the signals from the body leads to greater understanding and control of SELF.

The Spirit Image of the Spirit

Unlike machines humans are conscious. We are aware of our experience and we are aware that we are aware! The brain consists of many “expert” systems some of which process colour, some sound, some touch and etc. Consciousness is able to integrate these system outputs and see the whole. Hypno-Psychotherapy as a whole can be viewed as a path towards a more developed and integrated personality.
