Inside Out

This past weekend I had the opportunity to take my young nieces to see the Disney movie Inside Out and I have to say that I thought that Disney's exploration into the emotions/parts of an 11 year old girls mind was brilliant. The simplified explanation of how our minds store information and also, how it dumps out 'old programming' was so easy to follow, that even my 8 year old niece understood it.

So, how you may wonder, does this even relate to this blog or what I do?

If you've seen the movie Inside Out, then you may have a clearer understanding when I say that in life, my job is to do the part that "Joy" did in the movie. My job as a Hypnotherapist is basically to help restore all the 'parts' of a clients' mind to working in harmony.

In Clinical Hypnosis we are taught a brilliantly simple and elegant therapy called "Parts Therapy."
Immediate and permanent change can occur when we open ourselves to the concept that our minds are compris…

So What IS Hypnotherapy?

First of all let me assure you that Clinical Hypnotherapy is NOT the ooey-gooey "I will control your mind" nonsense that Hollywood has portrayed for many years. Nor is it that guy making you dance around like a chicken at a stage show.

Well... no... let me correct that. Stage Hypnosis is real. It is an art all on its own and takes a lot of practice to finesse.

Welcome to Triquetra Therapeutic Services!

I want to thank you for dropping by and hope that you will enjoy this blog.

My name is Laurie & I am a certified Clinical Hypnotherapist.

As you will eventually see, a lot of my posts will have pictures of paths and trees and I can't deny that I am a child of nature. I love being outdoors and just sitting quietly listening to the world around me. Throughout my life I've been drawn to paths; paved or dirt roads, barely there bush trails and footpaths, for no other reason than to see what is around the next corner.

As you join me on this journey, you will see postings about my thoughts or information on Hypnotherapy, because helping people to work through their health and life issues is what Triquetra Therapeutic is all about.

Posts will sometimes be clinical, sometimes personal and sometimes scientific in nature. I'll also share random positive affirmations. You'll also no doubt see pictures of my dogs from time to time because they are a big part of my connection …
