Cognitive Hypnotherapist and Master Practitioner of Neuro Linguistic Programming




As a child, between the ages of 2 and 6 yrs old, we spend a large amount of time in a theta (4-8Hz) level of EEG activity – higher than a baby but lower than an adult.  At this frequency the brain downloads a massive amount of information needed to survive and grow in our environment. Thus our parents`/carers` fundamental beliefs, behaviours and attitudes become “hard-wired”  in our unconscious.

Our unconscious then acts as a database to read environmental signals and operate the hardwired programmed responses - once programmed they control our biology for the rest of our lives. When a stimulus is received it will automatically engage the response that was learned when the signal was first experienced in childhood – just like pushing a button.

This is why our psychological expectations  and attitudes can override any messages coming from the body.

In hypnotherapy the client is relaxed into a theta level of activity, which enables access to the unconscious mind`s programming and the opportunity to modify or remove it.

Finally - Carl Jung, the father of Analytical Psychology, said “when we destroyed Olympus we changed our Gods into symptoms”.  Today, in the absence of the Ancients`  traditions, rituals and mythologies we need therapy to heal and to direct our lives.
