Because I offer a holistic (I look at the whole person) and integrative (multi-therapy) approach, I select from my toolbox of therapies which include Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Hypnotherapy.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy

Also known as ACT encourages you to embrace your thoughts and feelings rather than fighting or feeling guilty for them.

It may seem confusing at first, but ACT paired with mindfulness-based therapy offers clinically effective treatment.

Medical conditions such as anxiety, depression, OCD, addictions, and substance abuse can all benefit from ACT and Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT).

ACT develops psychological flexibility and is a form of behavioral therapy that combines mindfulness skills with the practice of self-acceptance. When aiming to be more accepting of your thoughts and feelings, commitment plays a key role. In the case of ACT, you commit to facing the problem head-on rather than avoiding your stresses. Imagine committing to actions that help you facilitate your experience and embrace any challenge.

Relaxing hypnotherapy
Hypnosis Is A State Of Focused Relaxation

Hypnotherapy is a therapeutic technique that makes use of your mind’s most receptive level of awareness. In this state, we can help you to process fears, anxieties and negative behaviours and overcome them.

We enter this awareness state quite naturally; when driving a car, watching TV, daydreaming. We recognise it afterwards, when we suddenly realise we’ve been focusing on something totally unrelated to our activity. 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.

The REM phase during sleep is another example, when the mind is busy processing information and experiences. Memories are transferred from the subconscious to the conscious mind, turning from emotions to a rational narrative that helps us to deal with life events.

Hypnotherapy encourages this natural mental process which is vital for maintaining a healthy mind.

Hypnosis to heal
Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) Is An Alternative Treatment for Pain and Emotional Distress.

It’s also referred to as tapping or psychological acupressure.

Developed by Gary Craig, tapping on specific points on your body can create a balance in your energy system and treat pain. A disruption in energy is the cause of all negative emotions and pain.

It is also used to treat anxiety and PTSD.

Heal your life
Thought Field Therapy uses Natures Healing System

Thought Field Therapy (TFT) is the sequential tapping procedure, that Dr. Robert Callahan discovered.

When applied to problems TFT addresses their fundamental causes, providing information in the form of a healing code, balancing the body’s energy system and allowing you to eliminate most negative emotions within minutes and promote the body’s own healing ability.

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.
