Time to reflect..
As the year draws to a close it’s often a good time to reflect upon our lives and review the direction we’re taking. If a dramatic or traumatic event has occurred it can be easy for that to overshadow everything else that has happened to us. Our minds can become stuck on the impact of strong emotional disturbance and this can then have the effect of colouring our view of the rest of our year.
For this reason I’ve gotten into the habit of keeping a record of family things by writing them down on pieces of coloured paper and keeping them in a jar. Little outings and events are recorded and dated and then folded up and put in the jar. At the end of the year it’s surprising and often delightful to recall all that has happened. I use this method to recall our family stuff, for my own things I use a gratitude journal. This journal is used to record my life from the perspective of gratitude. It doesn’t always contain happy events, for example I lost one of my oldest and dearest friends this year, but I could certainly document how grateful I am to have known her and have her in my life. Every experience we have can teach us something and the lesson, even if it was a hard one is something to be grateful for.
There are usually many pleasant things to be grateful for, many more than we realise until we take the time to notice them, sunny days, cool breezes, safe environments, a free country, a good cup of coffee a task well done etc. As I wrote in a post earlier this year, science has proven that the act of searching for things to be grateful for is good for our brain and lays down neural pathways which make us more resourceful and generally more content people

If you’ve been struggling with Anxiety, Stress, Depression, Weight, or habits such as Smoking and you’d like 2016 to be the year you say goodbye to them ruling your life I can help. Hypnotherapy is an effective way of making long lasting changes in your mindset which consequently redirects your actions and perceptions to create more positive outcomes for you. It is a subtle process, and you are in full control the entire time. Hypnotherapy harnesses the power of your imagination to create the experience of change in your subconscious mind, it’s often said that all Hypnosis is Self-Hypnosis and I believe this is true, as a Hypnotherapist I simply guide you to the place in your mind where you need to make the change and help you access it.

How to chose a Hypnotherapist...
If considering Hypnotherapy always ensure that the therapist is properly qualified and a member of an Australian Hypnotherapy Association. This ensures that their training is comprehensive and up to date and that they are professionally supervised and bound by a code of conduct. I’m a member of both the AHA (Australian Hypnotherapy Association) and the ACA (Australian Counsellors Association) and am listed on the National Hypnotherapy Register of Australia.
