Hypnosis & Timeline Techniques
4 regular sessions of hypnosis may help you to give up smoking and get lasting results. Smoking is a regular habit so regular sessions give you a better chance of quitting. Research shows that by having 4 to 6 sessions, the success rate for hypnosis is about 96%!
When you quit smoking with hypnosis, there is no craving, and no desire to smoke. Plus, you may take care of your weight issues at the same time.
Most people don’t realise that depression is made up of many factors:
- Memory problems, especially for short term memory
- Sleep irregularity – can be oversleeping, under sleeping or broken sleep
- Inability to see a future for yourself
- Feelings of helplessness and hopelessness
- Irritability and/or angerLow or non-existent sex drive
- Eating irregularity – overeating, under eating
- Withdrawal and even isolation from normal and social activities
- Difficulty making decisions
- Suicidal thoughts
If you’re experiencing all or most of the above, do seek help for depression quickly. You can be treated with psychological services, in conjunction with natural therapies and/or medication.
It may take a number of sessions, because you will also need to learn different ways of thinking about things, and practise them.
In between your psychology sessions, which are usually structured 1 to 2 weeks apart, you are able to email me and have a quick 5 minute phone call.
After each session, and sent by email, you will receive motivational boosters, plus a ‘white paper’ with information for homework or just to ponder on.
Homework is an important aspect because it helps you to practise stress management and implement what you have learnt. When homework is provided, I do expect you will be committed to completing it as I only work with people who fully desire to be well, healthy and happy.
Your Investment in good mental health
Think Straight & Feel Great!
Your investment in your health is the most commitment you will ever make. Without your health, what does your life mean to you? Your sessions are able to be claimed from private health funds, according to the regulations of your health fund.
Psychology / NLP sessions are usually 50 minutes in length, and many people will only require 4 to 6 sessions.
However, if your situation is complicated, you may require more than that. Without meeting you and assessing you, it would be incorrect to say exactly how many sessions you will need, or what approach will work best for you.
If you have private health cover, you may be able to obtain a rebate from your health fund.
Mental Health Shared Care Plan 2710 and Medicare Rebates
If your symptoms meet the criteria for a serious mental health disorder your GP can make a referral to a psychologist, under the Mental Health Shared Care Plan.
If you do not have private health cover, then a referral from your GP to myself as the psychologist, may be possible if you meet the criteria for a Mental Health Shared Care Plan.
When you make the appointment for your GP, make sure you request a longer session time as the assessment is thorough.
Then, when you have paid for your psychology session, you claim your visit on Medicare and get a rebate – approximately $81 from Medicare.
There is a gap between the fee for the session and what Medicare covers, which you need to meet yourself.
