Juliette Harris qualified as a Clinical Hypnotherapist in 2009 and has been running her own Clinic in Christchurch since then. Juliette is a full Professional Member of the NZAPH and HNZCH, and has completed many additional trainings including the Virtual Gastric Band, EMDR, Gut-Directed Hypnosis, Auto-Immune Hypnosis, EFT and NLP.
Our focus is to help individuals achieve their goals and change unwanted habits, behaviours or limiting beliefs. We achieve this by providing a neutral safe space, listening to your concerns, and customizing a hypnotherapy treatment plan based on your own individual needs.
All hypnotherapy sessions are private and confidential. Personalised recordings are provided in MP3 or WAV format for clients to listen to at home to reinforce the changes we have made. Session times vary depending on the needs of the individual and our prices are per session rather than time-based.
Juliette is one of the most experienced VGB practitioners in Christchurch. Having studied nutrition for weight loss, Juliette has a good understanding of how to maximise success for each individual client and also regularly works with clients who have had the physical gastric sleeve or bypass surgery.
The VGB hypnosis for weight loss program has a 95% success rate in clinical trials in the UK and consists of 4 sessions, each a week apart, with recordings to listen to daily at home. This program follows a set script however Juliette personalises client sessions for individual needs. The Virtual Gastric Band program is generally aimed at those whose main issues are with portion control and snacking.
Our Quit Smoking hypnosis package consists of 2 sessions, 1 or 2 days apart. Personalised recordings are provided for you to reinforce the changes and make the transition to a permanent non-smoker smoothly and comfortably. Hypnotherapy has one of the highest success rates for stopping smoking, at around 80 to 85% compared to prescription medication and patches at around 22 to 30%.
For those who want to lose weight and maintain a healthy lifestyle routine we offer a 2-session hypnosis package that is tailored for your individual needs and includes personalised recordings to use at home. The hypnotherapy sessions are usually a week apart. Our healthy lifestyle routine package is not about dieting or deprivation, its about losing the diet mentality, the self-sabotaging part of us, and simply enjoying choosing real, natural unprocessed foods in smaller portions, being active and drinking plenty of water.
Depression, fear, and anxiety are some of the most common and uncomfortable emotions that we can experience at some point in our lives. Through hypnotherapy, we are able to help you recover motivation, perspective, and joy that you once had in your life. We can also help overcome fears and phobias, often in just 1 or 2 sessions.
Often IBS symptoms present themselves after a period of stress such as a relationship break-up or loss of a job or a loved one. Other times it is food related and the discomfort can have knock-on effects throughout your life. Gut Directed hypnosis is a proven technique to alleviate these symptoms and Juliette is the only South Island hypnotherapist with this qualification and who works with local Gastroenterology specialists.
Stress can result in a variety of adverse symptoms, including a restless night's sleep. For some people the issue is falling asleep and others it's staying asleep. By using hypnotherapy and the recordings we provide for use at home, we can teach you relaxation techniques and reprogram your subconscious mind to allow for a more restful night's sleep, feeling more refreshed and alert during the day.
