"After only one session I was able to quit and not go back. I was a pack and a half a day smoker and I realized what a waste of money smoking was and even more importantly what was it doing to my health! Hypnotherapy gave me the tools to free myself of my addiction"
"I highly recommend anyone to work with Christine as her love and passion for helping others is simply amazing. After my second session with her I noticed real changes within me. I felt free, clearer minded, lighter and at peace with everything around me. Thank you Christine for your help. Your healing energy and talent is truly a blessing and a wonderful gift to the world!"
"I first met Christine in 2012 through a group studying energy medicine in the Inca tradition. I was attracted to Christine’s focus and clarity in the group and I was always impressed with the insights she offered in that context. She struck me as a gifted teacher and healer and I have personally benefitted from my connection with her. More specifically, in 2013, I recommended Christine to my daughter (21yrs) who was suffering from anxiety and jaw pain. My daughter asked to do a hypnotherapy session with Christine, as my daughter felt traditional counselling had done little to help her. My daughter had a generally stable childhood but during adolescence and high school she endured some unusual trauma, in part, because she lived abroad in a very difficult environment. She was immediately comfortable with Christine and, during hypnosis, she uncovered some incidents which were not in her conscious memory but which brought up some dark feelings such as fearfulness and powerlessness. The incidents that came up were rather surprising for her as, in one sense, they were benign when compared with more dramatic things that had happened to her later in her in her teens. But it was as though she had certain feelings about herself that had set in and become stuck in those moments and the feelings and energy around the incidents were somehow freed up with the recall. She only had one session with Christine but her health has improved remarkably since that session. It was powerful and very beneficial work, and I know that both me and my daughter will turn to Christine for help when we experience difficult times in the future."

The practice of promoting healing or positive development in any way is known as hypnotherapy. Hypnotherapy aims to re-programme patterns of behaviour within the mind, enabling irrational fears, phobias, negative thoughts and suppressed emotions to be overcome. As the body is released from conscious control during the relaxed state of hypnosis, breathing becomes slower and deeper, the pulse rate drops and the metabolic rate falls. Similar changes along nervous pathways and hormonal channels enable the sensation of pain to become less acute, and the awareness of unpleasant symptoms, such as nausea or indigestion, to be alleviated.
Hypnosis is thought to work by altering our state of consciousness in such a way that the analytical left-hand side of the brain is turned off, while the non-analytical right-hand side is made more alert. The conscious control of the mind is inhibited, and the subconscious mind awoken. Since the subconscious mind is a deeper-seated, more instinctive force than the conscious mind, this is the part which has to change for the patient's behaviour and physical state to alter
