Cognitive Harmony – Cognitive Hypnotherapy and Performance Coaching London, Dulwich and Worldwide.
I went to Christina for help with ‘work/life balance’. I’d felt a deep dissociation for many years, such that I’d disconnected myself from relationships and thrown myself into my work. At times, this attitude has been self-destructive and hurtful to others.
Christina is attentive, skilled and professional. In just three sessions, I amazed myself with how I changed. I’m naturally skeptical and had no idea what to expect. It’s nothing like stage hypnosis – it’s more like communicating freely in beautifully relaxed, caring space. Following my sessions, I’ve astonished myself at how willing I’ve been to give of my time without guilt, to take breaks from work and to feel as if I’ve more time in the day. For years, I felt a sense of obligation towards others, and I later reacted by going to an opposite extreme. I’m quite resistant to a sense of duty and ‘will power’ – so I have no idea how I would have consciously shifted in this way. It really feels like a subconscious rearrangement, and I’m hugely grateful.
I booked a couple of hypnotherapy sessions with Christina before having to step out of my comfort zone for upcoming concerts. The results were amazing and still are. Physically my playing is now the most relaxed it’s ever been and apparently I now smile when I play my viola….and for people who know me that’s pretty miraculous!Sarah Harris
I’ve had an initial session with Christina and can honestly say without a doubt she has helped me loads already. She explored some of the main reasons for my performance anxiety – things I hadn’t even realised before, and she helped me reframe these which have enabled me to move forwards. In doing so, I now have more confidence to make videos of myself playing and embark on my performance diploma. Christina is a lovely lady, very professional, polite and kind mannered yet extremely effective in her approach (and a calm, quiet and relaxing location for the coaching). I’ll definitely be going back for more sessions. Thank you Christina!!Natasha Prendergast
