Therapies

ACT is a type of psychotherapy that helps you accept the difficulties that come with life. Even thought has just had its 30th anniversary, it has gained a lot of media attention recently, perhaps because more traditional psychotherapies such as CBT and talking therapies haven’t quite hit the mark with some people. ACT uses acceptance and mindfulness strategies, together with commitment and behaviour change strategies, to increase psychological flexibility. It invites people to open up to unpleasant feelings, to embrace their thoughts and feelings rather than feeling guilty for them or fighting them – and to learn how not to overreact to them.

Accept what is out of your personal control, and commit to action that improves and enriches your life.

ACT has been used effectively to help treat workplace stress, test anxiety, social anxiety disorder, depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and psychosis. It has also been used to help treat medical conditions such as chronic pain, substance abuse, and diabetes. The focus of ACT for OCD is to help clients get to a place where they can openly experience thoughts, feelings, or bodily sensations, not be overly impacted by them, and continue to move in directions in life that are meaningful.

Relaxing hypnotherapy
Hypnosis Is A State Of Focused Relaxation

During hypnosis, a person is said to have heightened focus and concentration. The person can concentrate intensely on a specific thought or memory, while blocking out sources of distraction. Hypnotherapy helps people make positive changes in their life by using powerful suggestions to change the subconscious mind where we hold programs that are written throughout our lives and we are often not conscious of these thoughts.

A typical hypnotherapy session will involve an interview, an induction, the trance is deepened, you are given post-hypnotic suggestions and you are awakened. The sensation of being hypnotised is different for everyone. For some people they feel very very relaxed, others are just aware of their surroundings, a few people go quite deep and can’t remember much of the hypnotherapy session. Either way, you will wake up feeling like you’ve had several hours sleep and deeply relaxed. It’s a wonderful feeling.

I was a little skeptical, but Catherine engaged with my needs and the results where dynamic. Definitely recommended if normal willpower isn’t working. Thank you. Brendan Moore, Auckland

I was struggling to control my weight after menopause and now with Catherine’s help I’ve lost 11 kilos and I’ve kept it off, effortlessly.

Thankyou Cat for helping to stop smoking, you were awesome. I felt like you were really engaged with me when I needed that extra push and motivation and now I understand that it was my subconscious mind and the programming that was holding me back from quitting. Kelly.
