I am Rich Ruddell, a Hypnotherapist

After completing the course sessions I took learning Hypnotherapy and Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) I was drawn to working with people while completing the paperwork for my Diploma.

My passion is helping people overcome their self-limiting beliefs and getting them on track towards living the life of their dreams. This often involves making big changes in life – something that many people are not naturally good at. Hypnosis is a useful tool in overcoming the self-limiting beliefs and self-doubt that stop many people from making the changes needed to get to where they want to be.

Having successfully navigated through many major changes in my life I understand the obstacles that hold people back and how to overcome those obstacles.

I assist my clients to:

  • Implement major changes in their lives.

  • Identify and change limiting beliefs and stop self-sabotage.

  • Stop smoking.

  • Break through barriers to losing weight.

  • Reduce, minimise or eliminate fears and phobias.

  • Reduce their stress levels.

My approach at all times is with a high level of professionalism. Each session is focussed on the individual needs of my client.

Increasing my knowledge and understanding of hypnosis and hypnotherapy, so I am better able to meet the needs of my clients, is of prime importance to me. I regularly engage with globally recognised Hypnotherapists either by attending conferences, workshops or connecting with online webinars.

What you need to know:

Hypnosis or hypnotic trance is a completely natural state for a human being. Actually, all hypnosis is classified as self-hypnosis because it is not something that someone can do to you against your will. The role of the hypnotherapist is to guide or direct the hypnosis to address specific and previously agreed objectives.

During hypnosis the critical mind is bypassed allowing positive suggestions and statements to directly enter the unconscious mind. This is why a person in hypnosis is generally much more receptive to making changes. Once those changes are acted on the results desired become achievable. So, it is essential for the hypnotherapist and you, the client, to fully discuss and agree on what will happen before commencing hypnosis.

Hypnotherapy cannot replace conventional medical care but it can be used as a very powerful complementary therapy. Not surprising then that more and more people are turning to hypnotherapy in the 21st century.
