Reduce/Manage Anxiety and Depression with Hypnosis 

Justin (not his real name) June 2017 ” I came to see Cathy for 3 sessions, as I suffer constant anxiety especially in relation to being in social situations and also to do with my sexuality. Cathy taught me through the hypnosis sessions to learn how to relax and calm down before a situation occurred- she taught me how to turn the anxiety down and the comfort up . She also gave me other strategies out of hypnosis like doing yoga and practicing mindfulness. Cathy gave me recordings to listen to so the suggestions repeated over and over so I could change my thoughts and feelings through repetition. I now feel so much more confident and hopeful about my life ” Click for more….

Lose 1-2 kilos per week with hypnosis   

Sandra October 2017″ Before I saw Cathy I could not stop myself snacking in the evenings. This is easy to follow and there is no calorie counting its a pretty basic program really that we all know . The thing is some of us don’t have the discipline or have been on that many diets you lose motivation. That’s where the hypnosis comes in as Cathy gives me the mental tools and suggestions I need to stay on track and which get into my subconscious changing the way I think and feel. Cathy gives you recordings to listen to as well as hypnosis works best with repetition. I have lost .5 to a kilo each week and as Cathy says its a lifetime journey for me where I don’t have to put unrealistic time frames on to lose the weight. I am now developing a healthy relationship with food I’m happy. ”

Hypnosis so you can sleep through the night

Simone (September 2016 – not her real name). Simone had not slept through the night for 8 years and suffered chronic insomnia. She had suffered a pretty traumatic event at the start of those 8 years. She was quite resistant at first and sceptical as to whether the hypnosis could help her sleep however she was in the end prepared to give it a go. I gave her the hypnosis and a recording to listen to . I spoke to her around 2 weeks later to see how she was going. She reported back she could not believe it – she was now getting off to sleep and staying asleep after listening to the recording. She said to me “You taught me that all I had to do was to stop myself thinking and quieten the thoughts down.”

Hypnosis for Improving Sports Performance

2017 March – Sarah went to pieces everytime she competed against other teams in lawn bowling and subsequently came to see me to improve her sports performance

“Hi Cathy all went well within my comfort zone in as far as I was relaxed and focussed for the semi and final. I will continue to listen to the CDS and other recordings you gave me, as I have other events coming up. You have awakened in me so much more – thank you so much “

Jill 2016 (not her real name) was  competing overseas in a body building competition and was terrified at the prospect of competing overseas in front of hundreds of people.

Over the 4 weeks of hypnosis I taught Jill how to relax and enjoy and look forward to competing so much so that via a certain technique it brings a smile to her face every time she thinks of it.

So often athletes performing at an elite level forget how to enjoy themselves – the fun has gone out of it.

Davina March 2018

“Hi Cathy
I just thought I would give u an update on how I was doing as I am sure u would appreciate the feedback.
Its now been 7 days since I was sitting in your rooms under going hypnosis to quit smoking.
The change has been phenomenal.. I just cant believe I haven’t had the cravings or addictions like I have had with other methods of quitting.
The desire for a cigarette is still there but its easy to overcome this and say I don’t need it and then the thought is gone.
Well the first week has passed and I am now tell people I am a non smoker…yay
I am loving breathing fresh air and I have already noticed some physical changes in quitting.
I am using the disc every day and find its a positive re-reinforcement – * will add an additional note on the end about this.
My family have been wonderful and supportive… the only one that isn’t is the dog  hahaha

I am sure he doesn’t like the fact I am spending less time outside with him not smoking but he did score a few extra walks in the first couple of days as I had this need to just walk and keep walking off the desire to smoke.
Anyway my family and I thank u so much and here’s to the next month.. that’s my next celebration date 🙂

 

Timothy Matthews 29 July 2017
“I smoked for 28 years and have tried to quit so many times. Was in Cathy Barrow’s room for one hour, and had a smoke before I walked in, that was the last smoke I’ve had.
I’m now at Day 67 smoke free.
I highly recommend Cathy, I felt comfortable in her room and she is very professional.
You are crazy not to see her. It was the Best thing I ever did”.

Paul and Jonelle Hypnosis in early March 2017
“Thank you Cathy..Jonelle and I couldn’t be happier with your services, hypnosis to give up smoking for life….We both feel like we never smoked.
You are not just professional, empathetic and passionate … you really do care about helping people achieve their goals. Our quality of life is so much better as non-smokers …thank you again Cathy”

Quit Your Phobias with Hypnosis

People can have all sorts of phobias which can render them powerlessness and stop them living their life happily and not in fear. Some of the phobias Cathy has successfully helped people with are a frog phobia and a moth phobia and claustrophobia. The brain has got stuck in the phobia at some point and we just need to change that thought, that default position, response, meaning memory so the client can move on. Personally I feel there is no need to revisit the phobia in hypnosis. Rather I assist the client through suggestions and their desire imagination to create a phobia fear free future and the hypnosis serves with their agreement the means to do this.

Remember we can relearn, learn to forget, replace and create new thoughts and ideas we just need a willingness to do this and to access the subconscious mind and to repeat, QUIT  repeat repeat that new thought and new belief until it becomes the new default position and the old response is eliminated. I also teach the client all my clients the method of deep breathing and meditation which calms the body down the heart rate and breathing sg so the client can manage their responses better to a perceived situation whether it be  a phobia or anxiety.

Summary – Hypnosis Your Drug Free Alternative Using the Power of the Subconscious Mind!!

Hypnosis (also known as hypnotherapy) is a method of inducing a relaxed state of mind in order to treat mainly psychological or emotional disorders. Hypnosis may be effective in treating disorders including anxiety, asthma, chronic pain, fears and phobias, smoking, high blood pressure, insomnia, panic attacks and stress. A person cannot be hypnotised against their will. Hypnosis is a method of inducing a trance or a dream-like state of deep relaxation in order to treat disorders of a mainly psychological or emotional origin. It has been practised in various forms for thousands of years by many cultures including Druid, Celtic and Egyptian. Today, hypnosis is recognised by the scientific community as a very effective healing tool and change agent.
