My name is Fabienne Ussher, Clinical Hypnotherapist and Counsellor, DipClinHyp., NZSCAH., MNHC(NZ)

Our mind is a complex miracle. To change unwanted behaviour we need to understand why we act and what we believe. The counselling process guides us towards insight, and helps us to grasp who we are, and how we want to be on a conscious level. But our subconscious mind can be more powerful than our conscious mind, and understanding does not always lead to change by itself. Clinical Hypnotherapy teaches us how we can use the tool of hypnosis in a self-directed way in order to transform subconsciously what we want to change consciously. Then we can create consistency between what we want, and how we act. With many years of study, and 8 years of clinical experience, I strongly believe in the empowerment both counselling and hypnotherapy can give to each individual client.

  • Do you have a problem that interferes with your life?
