About Ruth, the Hypnotherapy Lady
'Funny' how life throws 'things' at you, that you would never have thought you'd be doing! In 2008, someone threw this opportunity my way and I completed my first ever hypnosis training, qualifying as a Specialist Quit Cigarettes in 60 Minutes TM Hypnotherapist.
Setting up my practice at a Medical Clinic and also at a Complimentary Therapies Centre in the eastern and outer eastern suburbs of Melbourne, Australia, made me realise that I love the process and being able to help my clients change their lives for the better.
After a bit of a break, I was drawn to do further training to expand my skillset and offerings to treat my clients. I have trained with SMJ Coaching Institute.
I am fully certified and accredited registered as a Hypnotherapist by the American Board of Hypnotherapy.
Currently I provide this incredible service to my clients via in-person as well as remote (usually via zoom) consultations. In-Person Hypnosis Consultations are conducted at my clinic on the Mornington Peninsula in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, via appointment only.
People do not come into therapy to change their past but their future' - Milton Erickson (Psychologist and Psychiatrist)
What is Hypnosis
• Legal definition:
History of Hypnosis
Hypnosis is as old as civilization. Known under different labels, it dates as far back as 2000 BC. Hypnosis gets its name from 'Hypnos', the Greek 'god of sleep'.
In the 19th and 20th century scholars such as Milton Erickson, William James, Pavlov, Krasner and Jung brought hypnosis into the forefront.
1958 - Hypnotherapy/Hypnosis was officially recognised by the American Medical Association, followed by British & Australian Medical Associations, when
practised by appropriately trained and qualified persons. Health websites such as https://www.betterhealth.vic.gov.au/ states that hypnotherapy is 'now recognised by the scientific community as an effective healing tool and used as part of medical, psychological and dental treatments’. Also recognises that 'Hypnosis is considered to be a safe treatment when performed by a qualified and experienced practitioner.'
Hence Hypnosis or Hypnotherapy is now a more widespread and acceptable way of enhancing your life and welness.
Hypnosis is a natural state of mind that we all experience everyday, often multiple times. It's a naturally occurring trance state - think getting so engrossed in a television show or a movie that you or your attention cannot be dragged away. Or playing a game on your device or reading a great book....
When the hypnotherapist works with the client, 3 parts are considered:
1. Conscious Mind Logical, analytical, deliberate, cognitive, limited focus.
2. Unconscious/Sub-conscious Mind
Unlimited, expansive, involuntary, intuitive, active while still sleeping/dreaming, feeling
2. Critical Faculty
Protects, 'Firewall' between conscious/unconscious mind, allows conscious mind to evaluate and perhaps reject incoming information.
When you are in the hypnotic state, guided by the hypnotherapist when you work with one, your suggestibility is heightened. During the session, the critical is bypassed and positive suggestions are given to your subconscious mind, replacing the negative and older patterns/beliefs.
Even though you are in a state of relaxation, you are always in control.
Hypnotherapy leads you in a systematic way to bypass that faculty and sets you up for success.
