“Natalie is a great hypnotherapist and lovely lady, you are always conscious and in control but the subliminal message sinks in. I would go to her again and definitely recommend her. She has great counselling skills as well – like an unbiased best friend. I feel stronger since having my sessions with her.”

Hello! I'm Natalie Swanson.
A Cognitive Hypnotherapist with over 18 years of experience in dedicated practice.
I help people like you to overcome the obstacles holding them back so that you can feel free, in control, and just get on with life!
So often our logical, thinking, conscious mind is frustrated because we can’t seem to overcome our challenges, self-doubt, or behaviours. Time and again we try to break free but cannot.
This is where the power of the hypnotherapy can help. Whether it’s anxiety or a lack of confidence, trying to get control of drinking or habits, overcoming sleep issues or fear or phobia, or dealing with your relationship to food or smoking, there are many techniques available that bypass your logical, thinking mind, and deal directly with your subconscious.
Cognitive Hypnotherapy employs all of the most recent advances and research in neuroscience. It’s not a one-size-fits-all approach – each session is individually tailored to you and incorporates both active participation as well as post-hypnotic suggestion.
The power of the mind, its capacity for change, and the knowledge that things don’t always have to be the way they are means that you can finally move past your old habits, behaviours, or thought patterns and feel in control and free.
Using a variety of modalities including hypnosis, NLP, EMI, and EMDR, we strive to quickly get to the emotional root of your issue and reframe it, so that you think and therefore behave, differently. Hypnotherapy uses the space in between sleep and conscious thinking – the subconscious mind – to permanently change behaviours.
A solution-focused approach
My approach is relaxed, friendly, and empathetic, and we are always working towards your desired outcome. From the moment you step into my office, you’ll find a safe space where you can be yourself, free of judgment. We’ll work together to uncover the root of your challenges and get you to where you want to be.
How can Cognitive Hypnotherapy help you
Anxiety & Stress
Anxiety and stress can be debilitating to experience, affecting our well-being and daily lives. This is one of the most common things people are seeing me for. There are many techniques, both active and passive, to help you conquer those anxious feelings. Using both your conscious and subconscious mind, we work together so that you can finally actually just enjoy yourself in what you do!
“I had a challenging and stressful work assessment ahead, I had failed a few times before, not because of a lack of knowledge but due to a lack of self-confidence and an inability to manage an intimidating situation. Two sessions of hypnotherapy and NLP techniques with Natalie gave me the confidence to sail through the exams and assessments. I’ve continued to use the taught methods in similar situations since then. The sessions were pleasant and enjoyable, looking for something else challenging so I can go again!” ~Tim
Weight Loss and Emotional Eating
Struggling with weight issues and emotional eating can feel like a never-ending battle, affecting not only your physical health but your emotional well-being as well. Hypnotherapy offers a holistic approach to address the underlying emotional and psychological factors that contribute to these challenges.
“Natalie is such a lovely and calming lady, I visited her to overcome a habit I have had since childhood and within a single session I saw amazing results. The whole experience was really relaxed and I only wish I went to see her sooner.”
~ Lauren B
Smoking, Vaping, Alcohol
Cigarettes have such a detrimental affect on our health, and even though people know this it can be so hard to quit on your own because of both the physical and psychological addiction. If you find that you’re ready to quit smoking, or tired of the vaping that got you off cigarettes, hypnotherapy offers a powerful method to overcome these addictions. We address both the emotional connection to these substances, plus the habit portion in a one-off, 2 hour session.
So many people can also find that drinking has become an issue – it can be a slippery slope and if you are finding that alcohol has become too much of a feature in your life, hypnotherapy can effectively address this in a series of one hour sessions. This is one of the most common areas people come to see me for.
Breaking free from addiction is not just about willpower; it’s about understanding the root causes and rewiring your subconscious mind. Hypnotherapy can help you let go of destructive habits and embrace a healthier, happier life.
“It is now nearly two years since we met and you called my fifty-year-plus smoking habit to account. I came to you more for the sake of my family than for myself, as I was very doubtful over the possible outcome. Even cancer had not stopped me smoking … I smoked fewer, but still smoked regularly [afraid to stop?]! The idea of me being a successful subject for hypnotherapy, given my past was, at the very least, questionable. The reality was extraordinary. After a generous amount of time given to a “simple” [but cleverly constructed!] question and answer session, during which I felt entirely secure and able to be open and frank, I stopped! I am most grateful as is my family who viewed my stopping as a miracle!! Thank you!” ~ Kevin
Confidence and Self Esteem
Low self-esteem and lack of confidence can hinder personal growth and success, both personally and professionally. Hypnotherapy empowers you to build your self-worth and confidence from the inside out.
Closely aligned to confidence issues is public speaking or presentation nerves. These issues tend to respond very well to hypnotherapy, and I have helped hundreds of people feel relaxed, focussed, and in control.
“Years ago I had people make jokes about my singing voice, but chose to pursue that career anyway. With just one lengthy session of self-esteem boosting hypnotherapy, I was able to get back on stage, no chokehold, full of confidence and now I enjoy singing again. I would recommend hypnotherapy to anybody, and Natalie is so warm and understanding; she makes the whole experience so calming. Thank you again Natalie.” ~ Janet
