About Hypnotherapy

Hypnosis — a focused state of attention and relaxation.

Hypnosis is defined as a natural, yet altered state of mind in which ‘critical thinking’ is relaxed and selective thinking is maintained. In this deeply relaxed, yet focused state, one can access the subconscious mind which is more open and responsive to positive suggestions. Hypnosis is also a skill, which means that the more we practice the better and easier we get at entering into the state of trance. Accessing the deep part of the mind opens a world of possibilities. What if this is the quickest and most direct way to program in new thoughts, more positive thoughts, life changing ideas? What if this method is the key to your deepest questions like wondering what you’re truly mean to do? What if all along you had all the answers?

When I work with you we are therapist and co-therapist collaborating on positive suggestions, ‘re-wiring’ and ‘re-programming’ what you desire. Hypnosis combined with repetition is powerful and the beginning of change in your life towards your chosen outcomes. Old patterns and old beliefs can be replaced and updated.


Cathy is a fellow of the International Board of Hypnotherapy, which has the highest certification standards in the industry. Her education at the Hypnotherapy Academy of America included 500 hours of classroom style study taught by leading experts in the field, researchers and physicians. Cathy practices Integral Hypnotherapy™ which is the only hypnotherapy methodology in the current era that’s been scientifically proven as superior to medication and other forms of therapy.

It is estimated that only 5% of hypnotherapists have the amount of training that Hypnotherapy Academy alumni have. Because Integral Hypnotherapy is adaptive and emphasizes collaboration between client and therapist, its possibilities as an effective adjunctive therapy are vast.

Every moment gives rise to new choices. 
Take control of your life by taking control of your choices.

Integral Hypnotherapy™ is an adaptive, client-centered and collaborative approach. It is a trusted adjunct to medical care, a method now tested and supported by a nationally funded scientific study. We will work together using hypnosis and the hypnotic state to help to soften the ‘critical factor’, the gatekeeper to the subconscious. For many people that could be the monkey mind, the voice in your head that might sound like your personal skeptic and life narrator!

Think of your life so far as the complete collection of all the social, cultural and environmental conditioning that you have accumulated along the way. Conditioning and programming from your parents, school friends, authority figures (like a teacher or a doctor), maybe even your work colleagues, etc. Along the way, you accepted certain beliefs, perhaps social expectations masquerade as “norms” that we should also accept.  As we continue to pack all this programming in, our critical-factor becomes the gatekeeper of the mind only letting in more of the same conditioning.

Some studies say over 90% of our thoughts are the same every day, some even say over 80% of our thoughts are negative! Consider then how difficult it would be to change the mind and let in new ideas.


Softening the ‘critical factor’ allows an opening to tap into the subconscious.

The state of hypnosis allows us to bypass the doorway to a world of answers and possibilities.


Practical Applications & Benefits

•Create a deeper relationship with yourself & others. 

Ever feel disconnected with yourself, you don’t even know how you reached where you got to? It’s like the snap of a finger and you can’t figure out why you even chose this career, or this life partner even, it’s gotten that bad. Try on connection once again — connecting your thinking head to your feeling heart. Try on emotional healing — you might not even know what it’s like to allow yourself to feel anything. Emotions and feelings serve a purpose. Our body is a wondrous communication device where emotions are beliefs running through us, trying to communicate. Are we listening? Can we perceive what the message is?

•Increase self confidence, fulfill your goals 

Everyone has goals. Whether it’s to pass a driving license exam or speak fearlessly in front of a big crowd, hypnotherapy can be the support you need to successfully reach your goals. More and more, as you make small steps or run with great strides towards new goals, increase your self confidence and realise that you are enough, you are worthy, you are loved and you are capable. Actually, everyone has confidence, but instead of being confident in not achieving something, we work together on redirecting and reprogramming to success!

•Reach peak performance in career/Athletics

Imagination and feeling are the keys to communication; the subconscious speaks to us using images and feelings. So we better be speaking in the same language if we are going to program successfully scoring a 3 point basketball shot / reducing your golf handicap / running a marathon under 3 hours or whatever goal you have!  If you can feel it, you can heal it. If you can see it, you can make it a reality. Remember that thought precedes form. Everyone can benefit from better game — a better sports game, better work game, be better in the game of life!

•Day to day relaxation & greater satisfaction

Whilst stress is a healthy way of the body signalling to you, chronic and consistent states of stress is a leading cause of disease. It is exactly that, dis- ease. Millions upon of people suffer from feelings of anxiousness and live day in and day out in consistent stressful environments. Studies show that activating the parasympathetic nervous system for even 20-40 min a day can reduce stress. Hypnosis can teach you how to slow down, practice self care and choose smarter responses to stress triggers and cope with life demands more effectively.

Unleash the power of your mind,
Reach for your higher human potential.

Practical Applications & Benefits

  • Natal, interlife and past life regression therapy

If you can accept the ideas of karma and the continuation of consciousness, exploring the influences of past lives or the interlife can bring increased awareness and understanding of your current life circumstances. Some leading hypnotherapists say that more than half our issues go back to the time we were in the womb! Natal regression allows us to dig deep into what’s transpired before we even take our first breath in this world. Viewing past life, interlife and natal regression information with a therapeutic purpose can resolve or increase our awareness with issues in this life.


Are you curious what your earthly purpose is? Ok maybe you don’t want to start with the biggies, or maybe you do! Is it that simple that we just ask? Yep go for it. Ok can you ask why nothing seems to be working out in life? Yes, not working out yet and yes you can figure that out too. Perhaps you can be open to considering that as our awareness increases, we can begin to see and perceive things differently? Perhaps you might be interested to notice day by day in every way, a life worth living more consciously, with more connection to yourself and to the greater environment and all things around us…

Therapeutic protocols have shown positive results for pain reduction, (i.e. chronic pain conditions) and accelerated healing (i.e. post surgery). There has even been documented cases of complete spontaneous remissions of tough ailments or conditions with unknown causes (i.e. fibromyalgia, cancer). As an complementary practice to your medical care, allow hypnotherapy to support your wellness objectives through a tailored program.

  • WELLNESS OBJECTives, deep relaxation

Medical support sessions can help in establishing lifestyle goals such as quitting smoking or even losing weight. From overall wellness objectives to working with specific medical ailments ranging from the mundane migraine to the more serious life affecting disease, hypnotherapy can work side by side along your primary medical care. Learning how to deeply relax and access the body’s restorative state allows for deeper healing to happen.
