Hypnotherapy

11 year boy suffering from anxiety and lack of confidence

It was lovely to see you yesterday, and Miles came away very happy and saying “I really like Lee” 😊
It’s great that he has now clarified that it’s ok the voice is there, (ie anxious negative thinking) and that he can be the boss even though it is there. And it’s also good that he knows there is someone besides mum whom he could talk with if he needed to.

Release from trauma and anxiety

Lee has been amazing to work with – she helped me through a major life event which created trauma and anxiety. She knew exactly what was needed and the hypnotherapy relieved stress, released traumatic emotional loops and helped me regain my confidence in my ability to heal. I also use the techniques she taught me to release tension and create a positive life experience. Lee has a deep understanding and care for her clients, and a calm, centered approach that really works – thank you so much!

I could hardly believe how easy it was

Lee, thanks to your help, the Tasmanian tree walk was a great success. I could hardly believe how easy it was!

Thank you so much for your help and guidance

Hi Lee, Things are going pretty great to be honest. My partner and I have been going good and have gotten past a lot of stuff that has happened in the past. Thank you so much for your help and guidance. It helped a lot!

Stop nail biting – it’s easy with hypnosis

I saw this young lady for one session. She had been a lifelong nail biter and had had no success with any of the usual methods for stopping. This is what she has to say about her experience of hypnosis:

“Things are going great! I haven’t once bitten my nails or even contemplated doing so, I find that no part of me feels a need to do it anymore. I notice this most when I’ve been sitting in classes at uni or simply sitting in the car and I realise I haven’t once considered picking at a nail or moving it to my mouth. Thank you”.

In hypnosis I revisited my childhood

I had all the possible tests done and nothing could explain the debilitating stomach cramping and embarrassing urges. I needed to find a solution and found some info on the net about hypnosis. I started an amazing journey with Lee Barnasson. In hypnosis I revisited my childhood, the early symptoms of IBS and I recognized the triggers. Today I’m mostly free of the condition, unless from time to time I get caught in stress. And if I do feel stressed, with the simple techniques that Lee taught me I know I can calm myself and continue to feel well. Thank you, that really changed my quality of life.

I am much better with my claustrophobia

Thank you Lee, I am much better with my claustrophobia, I’m still a bit nervous but I can function normally. I was reaching a point where I couldn’t take a lift or get into a confined space if I could not identify safe and easy exits. I was managing some increasingly difficult avoidance strategies such as setting appointments in cafés rather than a high rise building, avoiding public toilets, checking exits and locks before I could go into a room etc… I’m OK now, recently I found myself not even thinking about it when I was in a lift of city hotel. Thank you for guiding me into my own exploration of suppressed memories and finding the way to embrace the scared child in me.

I visualized myself at every stage of the race

I’d always wanted to compete in a marathon so I started regular training in preparation for the Gold Coast marathon. I already knew that performance depends not just on physical fitness but mental preparation and expectations and wanted to incorporate this into my training program. A friend suggested I try hypnotherapy and recommended that I contact Lee. I had several sessions where I visualized myself at every stage of the race, even anticipating periods of flagging energy and muscle fatigue and we worked on strategies for getting through these. I ran the marathon, finished in a very respectable time and really enjoyed the experience. It worked for me!

After just one session of the Rewind Technique

Hi Lee – I’m starting to feel that I’m finally climbing my way out of cycles I’ve been trapped in for years, finding it easier to find peace within and get some separation from my ‘issues’. Though I can’t pinpoint any specific transition, I am finding myself in a different place. Thank you.

I always leave her sessions feeling much better

Lee is a very skillful and kind hypnotherapist. I really feel listened to and cared for. I always leave her sessions feeling much better and that I have gained an insight into myself and my relationships with other people. She taught me how to do Trauma Release Exercises and since doing them regularly at home I feel more emotionally stable and more able to cope with stressful situations. When I first learnt to do them, I noticed that when I started to feel upset, frustrated or angry, rather than staying stuck in that emotion and dwelling on it for hours or even days, my mood would suddenly return to a calm rational state and I felt much better.

I didn’t feel drained as I have with other approaches

After seeing you I noticed I didn’t feel drained as I usually do when I’ve just talked about the problem. Since then I have tried to test those experiences and how they make me feel by thinking of them but I have to say that although I can still clearly remember them they really don’t seem to be so laden with all the emotion and hurt that they used to carry so I think that is a great outcome.

Moving forward calmer and more confident

Hi Lee,

I feel so much better, everything seems to be going well and things are looking up. I have become a lot calmer and am feeling a lot less stressed.  I’m following my heart and moving into the design field as well. I’ve also cut down a lot on the alcohol.

I really got a lot out of our sessions; they’ve calmed me down and have made me more focused in the sort of direction I want to take; I’ve become more organised and motivated and I also see how knowledgeable I really am, overall I feel a lot happier.

Thank you so much Lee!

I have been aware of the lack of anxiety

Thank you, I’ve been meaning to send you a message. It’s been very interesting for me, I haven’t felt anxious, however I have been aware of the lack of anxiety. I’m not sure if that makes sense, but I became so used to that daily anxiety that I had a heightened awareness that that feeling wasn’t manifesting. It’s definitely felt good and I’ve felt more confident in myself. I feel hypnosis will be great in assisting whenever I’m needing a boost or have any other concerns that arise. I can’t thank you enough for our session!

Excessive Drinking

I exceeded my goal of going without alcohol for 8 months

When I went to see Lee I was feeling really stuck, it was like my life had come to a dead end and there was nowhere to go. I was bored, lonely and depressed and using alcohol as an escape. I was drinking by myself every night. Four sessions with Lee changed all that. She was so kind and patient and totally supportive. Where I was really down on myself, she never judged me or gave advice but always encouraged me to look at my strengths and achievements and in the work we did together I also realized how much my early childhood was influencing my behaviour as an adult. I set myself the goal of being alcohol-free for 8 months and then being able to enjoy an occasional social drink. When I reached my first milestone, 3 months alcohol-free, my girls gave me a beautiful gift. I exceeded my goal of going without alcohol for 8 months, not because I was trying but I just wasn’t interested. I now enjoy an occasional social drink, I have more energy and enthusiasm than ever before and am looking forward in my life, because I’m in control.

Fears & Phobias

Fear of flying

I just wanted to thank you for all your help with Jamie (12 years old) and his fear of flying. The flight to and from Europe went without any dramas at all. He was calm and actually enjoyed the experience. He was a little anxious the night before returning but fine during the flight. Overall we had an amazing trip and Jamie enjoyed it too, especially snow boarding. Thank you so much.

Fear of driving on the highway

I last saw you around March. I have not highway driven since then, but last weekend I did my first drive. And it was a success. Whilst I still felt a little uneasy, it did not get away from me. I’m driving again this weekend so I’m hoping this also will be a successful trip. Thank you for your care and patience and for fitting in with my work hours. Up and up from here.

I passed my driving test

The day after our session, I had my driving test and I passed! I’ve started driving on my own. Sometimes I feel a bit nervous but I know all I have to do is to continue practising. Now that I can drive I’m going to sign up to a gym and I’ll get out and about more. I’m really happy about the session we had before my exam, it helped me a lot and I really enjoyed the experience of hypnosis.

Making Changes

I just want to thank you again for the impromptu hypnotherapy session you gave yesterday at the information session. I think I mentioned that I found myself admonishing myself for the feeling of sadness I encountered, and that I couldn’t get to the bottom of it. Well, something appears to have shifted below the surface – as if an obstacle has moved allowing my conscious thoughts to flow in different and unexpected directions. Even better, this morning I woke up with unexpected clarity and peace about a new perspective on the ups and downs of my life experiences. As you will appreciate it is nearly impossible to put this sudden insight from the subconscious mind into words, so I’m not going to try, but I did want to let you know that I’m very grateful for the kindness you offered and the gift I received.

I was a completely different person, confident, articulate, responsive

My goal was to be accepted into a selective high school for the final years of my schooling. When I went to the interview I completely froze. I couldn’t talk about myself or respond to the interviewers’ questions beyond a yes or no. I was really disappointed with myself because I’d worked so hard to get good marks and had met all the other selection requirements but I really let myself down in the interview. The school offered me the chance of a second interview and my mum called Lee and asked if she could help. I’m so glad she did.

I had three or four sessions with Lee and I’m not exactly sure what we did but when I went for the second interview I was a completely different person, confident, articulate, responsive. I couldn’t believe the change. The good news is that I was accepted into the school and am absolutely loving it. Lee was great to work with and she helped me see myself in a different way.

After just one session, I stopped biting my nails

I can’t remember a time when I didn’t bite my nails. I tried will power and when that didn’t work I put nasty tasting substances on my fingers. I guess I just got used to the taste because I continued to bite my nails. A friend recommended that I see Lee and I’m so happy I did. After just one session, I stopped biting my nails, that was over a year ago and I have nails that I’m really proud of. I have a regular manicure and really enjoy looking at my hands now instead of feeling embarrassed and ashamed. I can’t believe I put up with that for so long when the solution was so easy and relaxing.

Weight Loss & Balanced Eating

No desire to eat sugary foods

Hello Lee, I can report very good news. Since the session, I have not touched ice-cream or any sugary stuff such as lollies, cake, biscuits, desert etc and I’ve  lost 4kg.
And best of all there is no desire to eat sugary food and ice-cream, it’s effortless!

I make conscious choices

I struggled with weight issues most of my adult life and as I grew older I was putting more kilos on. I tried many diets and lost some weight and of course put it back on with a little extra every time. Hypnotherapy with Lee helped me tremendously, because what I needed really was to change deeply my relationship with food. I wasn’t eating junk and I tried to stay healthy with exercise but food was my comfort quick fix and, in some instances, my way to socialize. I did change, deeply, I lost 15 kg for good. Today I don’t diet, I make conscious choices, I feel great physically and I feel more grounded, and happier in myself.
