Mind Coaching

Decades of research show the key to a healthy life is being in control. Felicity will help you control worrying, reduce stress, sleep better and feel more positive, quickly. Mind Coaching techniques includes:

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT)

Evidence-based Hypnotherapy

Acceptance Based Therapies (ACT), including mindfulness

CBT is known as the gold standard in psychological therapies. That’s because it has the most research behind it, giving clients knowledge that techniques used work.

Evidence-based hypnotherapy is quite different to what you see on stage or TV, which is more about trickery than therapy. The hypnotherapy Felicity practices is best described as skills training, delivered when you are relaxed and best placed to learn new ways of thinking, feeling and behaving.

ACT is a new technique that is likely to become more and more popular over the next few years. It’s a form of behavioural analysis that uses acceptance and mindfulness strategies mixed in different ways with commitment and behaviour-change strategies.

Felicity is professionally qualified to help adults, young people and children of all ages.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

IBS is thought to affect between 7 and 15% of the population worldwide and should be diagnosed by a medical doctor. Stress and anxiety can influence symptoms. Felicity is trained to deliver both gold standard holistic treatments for IBS:

  1. Gut directed hypnotherapy
  2. Low FODMAP diet

Research shows gut directed hypnotherapy (GDH) is an effective option for managing IBS. GDH involves learning about the digestive system, then using hypnotherapy alongside individually tailored images to help normalise the gastro-intestinal (GI) system.

The low FODMAP diet is increasingly being suggested by doctors as a way of managing IBS. Australian researchers have found certain carbohydrates in different forms in foods are resistant to digestion. In people with IBS this can cause pain on digestion. The low FODMAP diet can be tailored the diet to meet an individual’s lifestyle and preferences.
