Working with Health Practitioners
This section provides an overview of the therapeutic Dear fellow health professionals and medical practitioners,
Thank you for your time and interest in reading this page. This section has been specifically written for professionals like yourself, and I trust that you will find the contents informative as an introduction to give you a clear indication of who I am and my work so that you can consider if my services could be of benefit to those under your care.
I call myself a Selfness Coach and Wellness Consultant, eventhough I am a registered Clinical Hypnotherapist with the New Zealand Hypnotherapists Registration Board Inc. I do this to de-emphasise the hypnosis aspect of my work because of the commonly held expectation people have about hypnosis as a 'magic wand' intervention, which is not at all what my work is about.
Whilst change can happen very quick for many, my focus is on developing effective long lasting changes for the individuals I work with. To achieve a state of wellbeing and successful recovery, each session requires an integrative approach with their active participation. Therefore, in addition to hypnosis, I also utilise a range of different therapeutic techniques from other modalities including counselling, psychotherapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, NLP, BodyTalk™, Psych-K™, life coaching, regression therapy, and Interactive Drawing Therapy™.
Based on the initial assessment consultation with the patient, a programme is tailored to meet the individual needs. I have included some brief case scenarios in my areas of speciality to give you a glimpse of the varied nature of how I approach similar conditions to achieve the same desired outcome of returning the client back into wellness. I am sure that you will find some of the case scenarios interesting and relevant for some of your patients. As a medical practitioner, you can register your interest to receive a Medical Professional Information Pack and one will be sent out to you.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. I am available to discuss specifics with you, to determine if what I offer is the best next course of action. In some instances, we may determine that a referral to a different service would be more appropriate. I look forward to working with you to assist your patients regain an achievable level of wellness.
