What is Hypnotherapy?

Neuro Linguistic Programming and Clinical Hypnosis.

At Mind Mechanics we use a combination of Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) and Clinical Hypnosis. Both of these are a powerful forms of Psychotherapy combining cognitive therapeutic techniques with subconscious healing techniques.

What does it feel like to get Hypnotised?

Being hypnotised feels just like being very relaxed. This feeling simply assists you in becoming so deeply comfortable and calm that, with a little guidance, you feel totally relaxed.

It is at this stage the work can really begin. Your Hypnotherapist will guide you through the changes you want to make to your automatic behaviors and/or emotional reactions, so they become positive and help you to move forward towards a more happy fulfilled life.

She uses the mind to break the habit

After a “lifetime” of people asking for her advice, Judi Gurd-Chapman decided to become a coach. While studying neurolinguistic programming, she discovered hypnotheraphy and made it her focus. Having studied here and overseas, Judi Gurd-Chapman of Mind Mechanics, has spent 10 years as a clinic hypnotherapist.

12:15pm : Mrs Gurd-Chapman leaves for the Neutral Counselling Bay and Therapy Centre.

1:00pm : When a client is under hypnosis, Mrs Gurd-Chapman tries to break old habits and patterns – smoking, depression, weight – by connecting with subconscious. Her first appointment is with a new client who has depression. The initial consultation lasts two hours. “The client leaves calmers more relaxed with a wonderful serene look on her face,” she said.

3:15pm : Her second client, who has relationship issues, arrives. “The change is very evident even as I watch her walk in the door, she is walking more upright, standing taller and looking forward instead of down.”

4:30pm : The next client arrives and talks about her weight issues, diabetes diagnoses and work stress. She has come for a hypnotic gastric band program, which with hypnosis makes the client believes that she has a gastric band. “There will be no need for that pattern of overeating any more”.
