Why Is Change Difficult?

Who we would like to be and how we would like to behave is a conscious desire, yet our conscious mind is only 20% of our total mind. The underlying person is defined by our unconscious mind which is there is protect and preserve us physically and psychologically. The unconscious is primarily programmed in our early years and affects all feelings, emotions and behaviours (reactions). Unfortunately some feelings, emotions and behaviours are not helpful - and sometimes change can only be effective or long lasting if it occurs at the unconscious level using  Ego State Therapy or Hypnotherapy.

Why Hypnotherapy

Feelings, emotions and many behaviours are controlled by the non-conscious mind. Perhaps you feel anxious, nervous or not as good as others? Perhaps you eat, smoke or gamble more than you would like to? Perhaps you can't get motivated, or think instead of sleeping?.
All these things you would consciously change if you could - but something deep inside is stopping you. Hypnotherapy and Ego State Therapy can often help access and work with unconscious, deeply held emotions and behaviours when other methods haven't been successful.

Why Not a Counsellor or Psychologist?

A hypnotherapist facilitates change at a sub-conscious level, while a counsellor or psychologist focuses on helping you consciously understand the cause and then changing the behaviour (symptom) ...such as in CBT. But often healing needs to occur at the source i.e. at the the unconscious level otherwise our unconscious mind will undermine what our conscious mind desires. For example you want to give up smoking - but you can't! To experience true change you often have to work with the source - not the symptom.

What is Hypnotherapy?

There are many definitions of hypnotherapy and hypnosis, but when experiencing hypnosis under the direction of a hypnotherapist it feels like relaxed, guided daydreaming - a very pleasant experience. At no point are you not in control, and at any point you can stop if you wish.

Hypnosis creates a state of deep relaxation but with heightened, focused awareness.  Mental stress and physical tension are greatly reduced and the subconscious mind is able to accept suggestions for change - as long as they are what you desire.
Because the mind is more receptive to the process of change during hypnosis,  the hypnotherapist and client work together as a team to achieve the goal of resolving your specific needs. Ego State Therapy works in a similiar manner, but without the need of a direct hypnotic induction.

Is Hypnosis Right for Everyone?

Hypnotherapy can be effectively used for many negative emotions or behaviours. Hypnosis and Resource Therapy can assist with stress management, anxiety, depression, confidence, self-esteem issues, smoking cessation, weight loss, school performance, sports enhancement, pain management and phobias.

Hypnosis can help with the fears associated with public speaking and can also be used for goal setting. As a clinical hypnotherapist my training and experience covers all of the above.

Hypnosis can sometimes enable people to access past lives (whether real or imagined) thus experiencing amazing understandings and healing - but only if it is something that they would like to experience.

Pre-hospital hypnotherapy can also  help prepare patients for hospital visits and needles, reducing their anxiety. Before scheduling hypnotherapy sessions for physical or medical conditions, it is strongly recommended to consult a physician.

Do I Need To Listen To Hypnotherapy Tapes Afterwards?

When working with a hypnotherapist the aim is to access the cause of the problem and consequently resolve under hypnosis, therefore making it unnecessary to  listen to hypnosis tapes afterwards.

Can I Be Made to Act like a Chicken When Under Hypnosis?

Some people are sceptical or nervous of hypnosis and hypnotherapy because of what they have seen of stage hypnosis. However a stage hypnotherapist picks out the people who want to be 'chickens'. He is skilled in picking only those who are up there to perform.
People think that the hypnotherapist will gain some mysterious control over them or learn their deepest dark secrets - which is so wrong.
While under hypnosis you still know what is going on and you will only do or say what you want to. As a hypnotherapist, we have no control over you - you won't do anything if it is not something that you consciously desire.

How will I Feel?

Being in hypnosis gives you a strong sense of well-being and vitality ...  it feels like meditation but without having to make the concentrated effort to get to that state - and you can expect to come out of trance feeling truly wonderful and relaxed. Ego State Therapy delivers amazing feeling of relief and empowerment. With the right hypnotherapist clients usually report a deep sense of calm and well being.

How Many Hypnotherapy Sessions are Necessary?

For many people, depending on the purpose, three to four sessions with a hypnotherapist is often the most that is required to enjoy long lasting change. However, some deeper issues may require additional sessions - while sometimes just one session of Ego State Therapy or Hypnotherapy can deliver total relief.

Does it work?

Because hypnotherapy and Resource Therapy works with the subconscious mind rather than the conscious mind, resolution &  change is effected at a far deeper level. Change is rapid, and does not so require many therapeutic sessions. See hypnotherapy testimonials and Case Studies on the website.

I - neil Buckley - who is a registered Hypnotherapist with the Australian Society of Hypnotherapists,  have been using ego state therapy, hypnosis and hypnotherapy to  help people with low self esteem, anxiety, depression, eating disorders, worry, concerns, low motivation or lack of motivation, now for 6 years in turramurra and Dyanna Hunt has been doing it in Crows Nest and North Sydney as well as the Northern Beaches including Mona Vale.

Ego State Therapy is a method that gets change happening very quickly. Ego State Therapy was developed by Watkins, however Ego State Therapy has really been totally updated by Dr Gordon Emmerson. Ego Sate Therapy works well with Hypnotherapy as the hypnotherapist puts clients into a hypnotic trance. Ego State Therapy enables change where often other therapies fail. Ego State Therapy is not invasive or long term - as with Ego State Therapy change can take place very quickly. In the future Ego State Therapy promises to be a leading therapy in Australia thanks to Dr Gordon Emmerson. Ego State therapy is my preferred way to work because it is so effective.

When I think of all the therapies I have learnt and studied, by far the most effective to deal with anxiety, depression, low self esteem, addictions including smoking, drinking and gambling, weight issues, motivation and depession, Ego State Therapy is No 1, followed by Hypnosis and hypnotherapy. Working on the source in the unconscious and subconscious is very powerful.

CBT works on the symptoms while Ego State Therapy and Hypnosis and hypnotherapy work at a sub conscious or unconscious level enabling the cause be resolved. Therefore with issues such as anxiety, low self esteem, stress, lack of confidence, depression, weight loss or weight gain, eating disorders including anorexia and bulimia, we can access early feeling and emotions that happened in childhood, and then by resolving them by using a gestalt type technique, these issues can be resolved.
