Certificate of Clinical Hypnotherapy

In recent times it has become obvious to Lucia – and to those in her referral network of osteopaths, GPs and others – that the needs of the community are becoming increasingly focused on remedying symptoms of stress and anxiety. In response, Lucia has extended her strong interest in the neuroplasticity of the brain and has acquired hypnotherapy qualifications, building her skills and capacity for innovation in the support and holistic body/mind care of her current and future clientele.

Lucia welcomes clients to discover an improved lifestyle, free from extra stresses and to help in the process of achieving calmer lives both physically and mentally.

  • Acupuncture

    Acupuncture uses very fine needles to gently access points on the body to stimulate the movement of blood, activate the nervous system, regenerate/untangle/release tension in muscle fibres and even assist internal organs to promote longer lasting health. Digestive health, headaches/migraine & pain management are just some examples of issues we can discuss.

    Sometimes people use acupuncture for general well-being and maintenance. It’s interesting to note that some of the points we use are also known as trigger points, which is why acupuncture is widely used for musculoskeletal concerns – many AFL footballers are regular users of this form of treatment in their regime.

    Lucia also uses remedial massage, cupping – commonly used by athletes, moxa – heat applied directly to trigger points, and includes take home advice specific to the issues presented e.g. rehabilitation exercise, positive reinforcement etc. when necessary.

    Private health rebates available.

  • Hypnotherapy

    When you find it difficult to get over mental barriers in your life that hold you back from achieving your goals – hypnosis can be the key to unlock those mind blocks.

    Hypnosis bypasses the critical, analytical part of your mind in order to make deep, lasting change.

    Hypnosis is a naturally occurring state of mind which we all experience during the course of a day. For example, when you are engrossed in a really good book or film, when you drive somewhere, walk somewhere and don’t remember the details of how you got to your destination because you were on ‘automatic pilot’.  Do you remember the last time you simply stared off into the distance and ‘daydreamed’? This is also an example of a hypnotic state of mind. These are everyday examples of how hypnosis is not unfamiliar to us all.

    In a clinical setting, you are guided into the hypnotic state by the therapist, and here, we make the changes via the inner subconscious mind. You are always in control of what happens within your own session – the therapist is simply a guide.

    In a typical session, Lucia gets to know you first through a detailed interview, counselling and then, if appropriate, hypnosis. Lucia will guide you into a pleasant state of relaxation where your critical/analytical mind will be asked to have a rest, take a backseat and allow your subconscious mind to listen.

    The interview and the counselling is where information is gathered and gives Lucia the opportunity to learn how you see/feel the world around you.

    Through the trusting relationships Lucia builds with her clients she is able to establish an insight into their unique individualism and view of life – learning to see and feel the world as they do, to better tailor an approach most suited to them.

    Initial consultations are 90 minutes.

    Allow one hour for any follow-up session.

    Email and telephone support is offered before and after counselling and hypnosis treatments if needed. Please email me with your contact information and with any questions before making an appointment, this also gives me the opportunity to find out more about you beforehand.

    If you are unsure if this style of therapy could help you process things, Lucia will be happy to talk with you on the phone or through email.

    As a member of the AACHP (Australian Association of Clinical Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy). Being a member of an association Lucia is required to have an ongoing supervision and is held to the high standards and ethics of the Association.
