Having personal experience with anxiety I appreciate how exhausting it can be both mentally and physically. Fortunately there are effective psychological strategies that can be learnt to help you reduce the struggle.
Did you know you can use psychological strategies and gut directed hypnosis to treat gut disorders? In my practice I focus on treating gut disorders in collaboration with your Gastroenterologist, GP, Dietician, and Naturopath, with excellent long term results.
Eating often has an emotional element to it & over time such eating can become a controlling, habitual force. Fortunately there are psychological strategies to help you regain your control, at the Engel Clinic we specialise in this and work closely with with other bariatric specialist.
Depression, Post Natal Depression & Bipolar are more common & treatable than you think. What we are feeling and thinking in these emotional states can negatively affect our behaviours. It's about breaking the cycle.
I work with CBT, ACT & Schema Mode to unlock unhelpful ways of thinking that are often deep rooted in painful experiences from the past.
Correct breathing activates the Parasympathetic nervous system & Vagus nerve leading to deep relaxation & improved health. It can also reduce pain levels, fatigue & inflammation.
Hypnosis involves a change of awareness at the subconscious level. Using this technique we are able to fast track change at a psychological, emotional & behavioural level.
