It’s the most basic action we do as human beings : breathing! Yet most of us do not breathe effectively. We simply take one
shallow breath to the next without thinking, it’s a survival mechanism. This is where Breath Work for Hypnosis comes in, to help
us focus our minds on breathing with full awareness and using our whole being to concentrate on the act of breathing, in and out,
By slowing the breath, your nervous system is relaxed, calming your mind which reduces stress and anxiety. It has an added advantage
of boosting your immune system, promoting wellbeing. In this state you may have access to deeper wisdom from within and both creativity
and healing are enhanced. This is a fantastic technique to help with sleep issues as it distresses the mind and body at the same time.
There are 3 parts to each breath: inhalation, retention and exhalation. The retention and exhalation are the keys to
health benefits and are used in many of the techniques we recommend.
Our Hypnotherapists use this technique to put you into a deep, relaxed state before Hypnosis. The results of learning this
Breathing Technique can literally makeover your life to promote wellbeing and relaxation; something we all need everyday!
Everything in the universe is composed of energy, vibrating at various frequencies, radiating positive or negative, balanced or
unbalanced, open or closed frequencies. Energy healing/Hypnosis is a holistic therapy to remove blockages and energetically
repair, restore and support the body to bring it back into balance.
Energy healing/chakra alignment is best when incorporated with Hypnosis, Havening or any other treatment during sessions.
When it comes to healing, there is a not a “one size fits all” approach, holistic therapies and conventional healing treatments are
customised to your needs. Our energetic bodies are intertwined with our physical bodies. All the traumas we carry physically, emotionally
and psychologically impact the functionality of our energy systems (Chakras) and vice versa.
When energies become blocked because of traumas, toxins, prolonged stress and muscular constrictions, it creates disturbances in the
energy flow in our bodies, which over time contributes to mental, emotional issues and /or ailments and physical disease. When our organs
are misaligned energetically it can materialise into physical ailments like pain, sickness and disease. To maintain vibrant health, the body
needs its energies to have energetic space to flow freely throughout the body.
Energy healing is available to everyone, but isn’t offered as a standalone treatment as it works best as a complimentary modality to
enhance other therapies to support, balance and restore your body using healing energy!
Is a powerful technique that involves you being in a quiet place, being still and focusing inwardly to connect to your ‘inner person’
in order that you find balance and calm. It doesn’t take long, just 15-60 mins a day is enough to centre yourself and bring peace to your
mind and body. Meditation requires that you ignore distractions and focus all your attention on finding that quiet, inner refuge.
Meditation can help calm your mind and have a positive effect on your overall health. It’s been shown that if you Meditate regularly you
are less stressed (and deal with stress more effectively). Often you’ll be healthier, sleep better and have a more positive outlook on life.
In other words, you’ll be a happier person!
Meditation is great for relieving stress and anxiety. It can help you rest physically and mentally, whilst having a positive effect on your
entire nervous system, and can create positive thinking and emotional stability. Also its now known that if you Meditate regularly you can
live longer than people who don’t.
When you book a session with Riverlakes Hypnosis and Wellness, you will be given a Meditation recording to use in the privacy of
your own home so you can discover the benefits of Meditation.
Havening is a natural way of showing yourself love and encouraging you to love yourself. Oftentimes when we are loved by

acceptance of ourselves as having implicit worth forever. After learning Havening, you can practice this amazing technique
anywhere at any time you need it.

If you need a ‘life boost’ from learning this incredible easy Havening technique then book your Havening appointment today and see for yourself how your life can change to a bright new future!
Menopause has been likened to puberty in reverse! Unlike puberty, the brain is not the conductor of the menopausal orchestra,
instead the dwindling egg supplies are the director of the final performance. In time the brain, like the body, learns to function
without estrogen, proven by many women that function well for decades post menopause.
However, some women find that their menopausal symptoms create a huge downward shift in their quality of life. Hot flushes are the most common menopausal symptom and some might say they’re the defining feature of the fertility free-fall. For others they occur alongside some of the other usual suspects like insomnia, depression, anxiety and brain fog.
We assess the issues attached to your individual transition, such as if you have depression or anxiety, and look at Holistic modalities
and its techniques along with Hypnosis to help you heal and restore your mind and body.
Stress, Anxiety & Depression
Insomnia & Tiredness
Nutrition & Exercise
Fortunately there is some hope for menopause sufferers in the form of Hypnotherapy - our Therapists are trained in many methods and
techniques which can help to ease your symptoms and help you make your life happier and more fulfilled!
40-60% of women going through menopausal transition report problems with sleep causing them distress and impacts on their daytime functioning.
Hot flushes may feel like a full body experience, but they're regulated by the busy hypothalamus in the brain. Your brain’s thermostat has an upper threshold for heat and a lower threshold for cold.
If you're too hot you sweat, your blood vessels vasodilate and you flush red, take off a few layers of clothes, or kick off bedding. If you’re too cold your shiver and seek warmth.
However during menopause, your upper hot threshold level moves down and the low cool threshold moves up, so you brain’s thermostat narrows. As a result you become much more sensitive to even tiny variations in core temperature - you sweat and shiver more easily. Relaxation techniques such as deep breathing or mindfulness can help reduce the distress associated with hot flashes. Fortunately Hypnosis gives hope to you if you are suffering pre or post menopausal symptoms.
Memory loss and brain fog are very common experiences for women going through the transition. It is important to know that brain fog is not an early sign of dementia. Menopausal brain fog can be temporary
and typically disappears after the transition is over. It is common to develop brain fog, slow or fuzzy thinking or problems finding the right words or remembering names. You may experience difficulty focusing,
develop confusion &/or forgetfulness but Hypnosis and other holistic modalities can help reduce these issues making your life more enjoyable. Our Hypnotherapists are trained in many modalities and techniques
which can help ease some of your symptoms and make your life happier and more fulfilled! Book your Discovery Consultation today to see how we can help you get on your way to enjoying life again!

The mind can often heal itself naturally, in the same way as the body does. Much of this natural healing mechanism occurs
during sleep, particularly during rapid eye movement or REM sleep. EMDR was developed in 1987. It uses a natural eye movement process to successfully treat
many different disorders, traumas and mental health issues.
EMDR (or Eye Movement Desensitisation & Reprocessing) is really just moving your eyes in specific directions as directed by the Therapist. With repeated sets of eye movements, the memory tends to change in such a way that it loses its painful intensity and simply becomes a neutral memory of an event in the past. Other associated memories may also heal at the same time which can lead to dramatic and rapid improvement in many aspects of life.
Yes, many people can find relief with EMDR, but it is not for everyone. Your Psychotherapist will assess your needs and
suitability at your consultation. EMDR is very successful as a complimentary treatment together with Hypnosis and other modalities for the treatment of anxiety, panic attacks, depression, stress, phobias, sleep problems, complicated grief,
addictions, pain relief incl phantom limb pain, self esteem and performance anxiety. Book your EMDR session today to discover
a new level of freedom!
