Anxiety & Trauma Specialist
Everyone feels anxious now and then.
Anxiety is a normal human emotion.
However – Anxiety disorders are different. They can cause distress in your life and difficulty coping with day to day life. People with anxiety can have high levels of worry, fear and overwhelm.
Types of Anxiety disorders
Panic disorder – Panic attacks out of the blue, without any apparent cause, spontaneously and unexpectedly for no apparent reason
Agoraphobia – fear of open spaces, fear of having a panic attack in crowds, public places, department stores, public transport, a hairdresser’s chair etc. The more that individual experiences panic in different locations and then avoids that location, the smaller that persons world becomes.
Social phobia – fear of public speaking, fear of crowds, fear of eating in public, fear of what people will think or say about them. For example, they may be out for dinner and see people talking and laughing and believe they are laughing at them.
Specific phobia – a strong fear and avoidance of one particular object or situation. For example, fear of spiders, snakes, heights, dogs or flying.
General anxiety disorder – Characterized by chronic anxiety that persists for at least six months but is unaccompanied by panic attacks, phobias or obsessions. An individual who worries about lots of things often.
Obsessive-compulsive disorder – extended periods of time cleaning, tidying, checking or ordering, to the point that these activities interfere with the rest of their lives.
Post-traumatic stress disorder – Disabling psychological symptoms following a traumatic event. This can result in flashbacks, nightmares, hypervigilance to situations, places or certain people.
Acute stress disorder – anxiety after exposure to a traumatic event. The symptoms last less than one month. If they last more than one month it becomes PTSD
Anxiety due to a medical condition – endocrine condition, cardiovascular condition etc
Substance induced anxiety disorder – drug abuse, medication – too much or not enough, toxin exposure.
At the Auckland Hypnotherapy Clinic we can work together to reduce automatic thoughts that trigger anxiety. Identify initial sensitizing events where the psychological problem was formed in the subconscious mind. Replace them with new helpful ways of thinking. Gain greater control over your responses to triggers and stressful situations and empower your mind.
Your thoughts are yours to change. Your mind is yours to direct.
Shift your mind from being your worst enemy to your best friend. But wait! There’s more! It’s not only about your cognitive thoughts and subconscious program. Trauma gets trapped in your body and nervous system so I will also help you with some exercises to release this trauma residue and unwanted trapped negative emotions.
Lets get you back to feeling safe and calm !!

Rid phobias, calm anxiety and manage stress with hypnotherapy.
A phobia is an irrational fear of a particular stimulus.
People with phobias will respond by avoiding certain situations, places, things or they will tolerate it with anxiety or can trigger panic attacks.
In severe cases the phobia can end up literally controlling a person’s life.
The good news is that Auckland Hypnotherapy Clinic can help you to get rid of your phobia!
I can work with you to access the underlying cause of the phobia and eliminate the conditioned response to the stimulus with use of powerful hypnotic and NLP techniques.
I can help you to help yourself to see your phobia in a different way (at a sub-conscious level) which will become less threatening or disappear completely through shifting your internal perception of that particular stimuli, releasing the emotional charge associated. Making the shift from feeling threatened and in danger to feeling safe, calm and in control.
Hello Mr. Blaine,
It is with much thanks and pleasure that I wish to relay our experience.
You treated my wife in regard to a life long phobia prior to Christmas along with an added session in regard to pain relief. The results of which I have to say are not short of amazing.
The phobia is gone completely and best of all my wife has no recollection of her former fear. The family are as delighted and amazed as I am at what you have achieved for us, this has improved my wife’s quality of life by a huge degree allowing her to join in activities previously denied her owing to the phobia, just awesome!
The added pain relief session was another success, giving her ease without the need for pain killers for the first time in a long time, again awesome!
I was with my wife at the session and you explained to us fully how the process works which I thought was very professional.
I am recommending yourself to friends and colleagues who may have similar issues as I have no doubt at all that you can help them.
Many thanks from us both,
Cost is $150 for 1.5 hours
or $100 for 1 hour sessions
