" People do not come into therapy to change their past but their future" - Milton H. Erickson  on Hypnotherapy

As an experienced fully registered Clinical Hypnotherapist, Advanced Rapid Transformational Therapist, Reg. Nutritionist, and Counsellor, I understand the unique challenges you may be facing and the importance of finding effective proven solutions tailored to your unique needs. With a personalised and integrative approach, I offer you the transformative power of Clinical Hypnotherapy, or Rapid Transformational Therapy TM, in conjunction with Counselling and Nutritional Therapy and other modalities if required, to help you achieve lasting positive change with the issue or challenge in your life.

What is Hypnotherapy?

Hypnotherapy is a safe and scientifically proven therapeutic technique that utilises the power of focused relaxation to access the subconscious mind. It is a collaborative process between you and Claire.  Allowing you to enter a deeply relaxed, healing and restorative state, known as hypnosis.  You are not asleep, it's a sleep of the nervous system, while your mind becomes open and receptive to change and the positive suggestions you want,  with insightful exploration into the issue.

Contrary to popular misconceptions, hypnotherapy is not ever about control or manipulation, but rather about empowering you, in and after your hypnotherapy session with Claire, to tap into your inner resources, working together we get to the root of and resolve the issue you have been suffering. Enabling you to make meaningful changes in your well-being, success, and life.

Incorporating Hypnotherapy, with Psychotherapy and Nutritional Therapy:

At Claire Russell Hypnotherapy, we believe in a complete and holistic, evidence-based approach to healing and resolving issues.  We address all aspects you wish to resolve, mentally, emotionally, and physically. By combining hypnotherapy with psychotherapy and nutritional therapy, we create a comprehensive treatment plan that addresses your unique challenges from all aspects.

Psychotherapy focuses on exploring and understanding the underlying emotional and psychological factors contributing to your current challenge and difficulties. By integrating hypnotherapy with psychotherapy, we can access and resolve deeply ingrained patterns, fears, and traumas, leading to lasting emotional, mental, and physical health healing and personal growth.

Nutritional therapy recognises the significant impact that diet and nutrition have on mental and physical health and well-being. By incorporating nutritional guidance into our sessions, we ensure that your body receives the nourishment it needs to support optimal mental health, cognitive function, and emotional stability. This integrative approach maximises the effectiveness of your therapy and greatly enhances your overall happiness and well-being.
