What is hypnosis or hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy is the practice of hypnosis. Hypnosis is simply an altered state of mind or conscious awareness, much more easily achieved than some people realise. It is a light trance state with varying degrees of consciousness, a state somewhere between asleep and awake. This differs from person to person. This state allows for more rapid change to occur.
Hypnotic suggestion bypasses the conscious minds natural resistance to change. Receiving positive suggestion in this relaxed state reprograms the subconscious mind to permanently effect the positive changes the person desires. This positive suggestion re-trains a person’s subconscious belief system and allows them to overcome habits, phobias and other unwanted behaviours and negative tendencies providing the opportunity to change and grow. This enables the person to take steps towards the life they consciously want to be living.
1) HYPNOTHERAPY– How is it done?
Every person experiences hypnosis in their unique way. In my office you will be seated in a comfortable chair with gentle background music playing, while being guided by my voice to relax to whatever level is appropriate for you. There is no wrong or right way to experience hypnosis, however you experience it, will be perfect for you. ‘Your’ mind is in control of the whole process. Generally speaking you will be likely to experience relaxation, sleepiness and limpness in the muscles of the arms and or the legs. Often a feeling of floating is felt or a relaxing heaviness. Both are fine. Methods vary, however the use of the therapist’s voice to guide you in this relaxed state, is all you need to think about. It really is a wonderfully relaxing therapy.
2) HYPNOBIRTHING AUSTRALIA- What is hypnobirthing all about?
In essence to me it’s about empowering women and their birth partners to experience a positive birth. The tools we use are calming relaxation techniques, visualisations, current up to date researched birth related education to enable informed decisions which we support non-judgementally. Participating parents receive a folio of resources to refer to during and after the course and we teach self-hypnosis to enable our Mum’s to learn to really relax and this tool can support you as parents also.
“People say to me, "What have you been doing?" I have returned to my pre-baby weight and feel years younger. I was emotionally eating but by getting my mind focused on health, I am back in control of my life and feeling great. Hypnotherapy and Non-attachment therapy address the cause of the unhealthy behaviour. The best things is, no more yo-yo weight or diets. I have made a lifestyle change and have never felt better. I've been sending a lot of my friends, who have struggled for years with weight in to see Lorina. They are thanking me now.”
“My daughter has her life back. After suffering from Bulimia which has caused her to isolate and miss so much school, she is now reconnecting with her friends and improving her grades. More importantly she is feeling good about herself again and looking healthier than she has in years. My daughter found Lorina easy to talk to and said, "She really cares Mum,". I feel like I have my daughter back.. Thank you Lorina.
“My life was becoming smaller as anxiety seemed to be claiming so many of my choices and freedoms. I was house bound and afraid to drive. I hadn't been out with friends for almost two years. I had cut back to half of my hours at work and my decreased income had caused more restrictions in my life. Then I heard from a friend about Lorina and Hypnotherapy. I had several sessions over the course of a few months and am now on just the occasional session, called a "Top up". My life has changed in all kinds of positive ways. I wish I had gone to Lorina earlier. The mind really is controlling our body. I am so grateful to have my life back.”
“My golf game has been a bit hit and miss until I went to see Lorina. Her positive encouragement and hypnotherapy sessions helped me to find my accuracy, self belief, focus and the enjoyment of the game that I have been missing. I'm going from strength to strength. This, hypnotherapy, is my secret weapon.”
“Sleeping issues really do interfere with the quality of your life. I have had problems staying asleep ever since I had radiation therapy. I am not as young as I once was and want to get this sorted so I can enjoy this time of my life without drugs. I plan to travel and was afraid to fly but after my sessions with Lorina, I now send her sms's telling her how much I enjoy my freedom to see the world. It's such a gentle therapy for all ages, even my granddaughter has had a couple of sessions. During these session I just love the relaxation and as a result, the freedoms it adds to my life.”
