This ones for the women (although it is ABSOLUTELY applicable to some men too!).
As a psychologist, I consult with many women. Women who are successful in many different roles in their lives. They are smart, resourceful, strong, value-driven and more amazing than most of them realise. Some of these women don't celebrate, or even recognise their strengths, because their mindset is often focused on perceived "failures". Their mindset is self-critical and demeaning, self-judgmental and often unfair.
Hypnosis is an altered state of consciousness, also described as a state of focused attention. This focus is induced by allowing a trained hypnotherapist to guide you into trance with the use of their words and voice. Hypnosis is usually accompanied by deep relaxation and is generally a very pleasant, calming and empowering experience.
When hypnotised, a person will be more likely to absorb and respond to ideas and suggestions made by a therapist. These suggestions assist the person to develop new thoughts and behaviours that underlie their goals. Hypnosis can be experienced as motivating and affirming.
A psychologist is a health profession that is trained to understand and help change human behaviour, thoughts and emotions. They can help individuals, couples, families children and adults, from all walks of life, to heal and recover from trauma, loss, adjustment, emotional distress and everyday concerns that occur in ones life.
In Australia, a psychologist must have at least six years of formal training and education before they can register as, and be called, a psychologist. They are required to abide by strict ethical guidelines and are governed by the Australian Heath Practitioners' Regulatory Association (AHPRA).
