Just reading news, statistics on depression could be disheartening. Media primary focuses on how terrible things are – “Pill-popping Britain: UK takes more anti-depressants than almost all of Europe” (Daily Mail 21 November 2013). “Someone Googles ‘Depression’ Every Two Seconds In The UK” (Huffington Post 19 January 2015).

The good news about depression – you are not alone.

Even better news – there is a way to re-program our minds, therefore emotions, consequently behaviour , thus habits and results.

Clinical Hypnotherapy is a remarkably powerful process to re-align the conscious mind with naturally positive thought patterns. Hypnosis boosts the lower frequency brain waves associated with sleeping and dreaming and drops the higher frequency waves associated with full wakefulness. It prompts the conscious mind to back off and the subconscious mind to take a more active role.

1. Hypnosis allows the subconscious mind to clean up the mess:

Without questioning we trust our subconscious mind to beat our hearts, to circulate blood and deliver oxygen to our cells. We don’t consciously control processes happening in our bodies. Wellbeing is our natural state. When the conscious mind is relaxed, the subconscious mind cleans up the created dis-order. It allows the conscious mind to function the natural way, attracting thoughts of ease and happiness.

“Your worst enemy cannot harm you

as much as your own unguarded thoughts” Buddha

2. Hypnosis helps to identify the reason behind depression

Most people have what Dr. Fritz Perls called “unfinished business” with their losses, be it a loved one, a job, or a home. These unresolved feelings, such as fear, guilt, regret, resentment, blame, anger, jealousy are energetically stored in the body and must be released in order to move forward. They otherwise become deeply buried beneath the numbness created by the anti-depressants and addictions. Clinical hypnotherapy removes the underlying cause of depression and creates peace with the past, that otherwise continues to recycle as self-sabotaging thoughts and behaviours.

3. Hypnosis helps to release stored negative emotions

With hypnotherapy, we can go down to the deepest level of the most traumatic experiences, memories and stored emotions to release them from the energetic field. Through hypnosis new neurological connections are created in the mind to allow people to see situations in a more positive way. When this process is completed, people feel that their depression has lifted, they let go of compulsive thoughts or behaviours that no longer serve them.

4. Hypnosis helps to replace trauma with empowerment

With each healing session of clinical hypnotherapy, the old haunting thought patterns will be replaced by an easier and more beneficial way of thinking. Positive suggestions and affirmations are now working due to the underlying triggers being released.

5. Hypnotic suggestions create long term wellbeing

Improved thoughts and emotions create positive effect on the physical body. By freeing yourself from depression you grant yourself the access to unlimited joy, peace, wellness and abundance. The better it gets, the better it gets. The physical body will benefit and soon reflect the newly gained inspired way of being. Inspired = in spirit = reconnected with the universal energy that flows through everything that is. Chronic pain and headaches often disappear, sleep and eating habits improve, happiness, appreciation and friskiness for life become the natural way of Being.

“The purpose of our lives is to be happy” – Dalai Lama


“There have been several life changes over the past few weeks. I am feeling a great deal more relaxed. My motivation has vastly improved to how I was a month or so ago. I am feeling very much more sociable and outgoing. I am now very positive – if almost seems as though I was a completely different person with negative thoughts & not enjoying life at all.” – Gina, was off work for over 8 months with depression before she discovered hypnotherapy.

Many people see me to calm their stressed minds down and improve sleeping patters. Hypnotherapy is one of the most effective ways to overcome insomnia, sleep deprivation and any sleep problems. It is natural and very enjoyable, with no side effects process. Hypnosis allows you to relax, let go of stressful or anxious thoughts and prepare body for sleep.

If you have problems to falling asleep try this ‘4-7-8’ technique. It was recommended by Alina Gonzalez and it is phenomenal. It takes a bit of focus to retrain a busy mind to relax and drift into a dreamland, and the ‘4-7-8’ trick makes it very easy.

Sleepless and Stressed – Mindful Breathing 

‘4-7-8’ breathing technique – You simply breathe in through your nose for four seconds, hold your breath for seven seconds, and exhale through your mouth for eight seconds.

Irina Valentino Hypnotherapy

Cute Ginger sleeping

When you feel stressed or anxious, adrenaline courses through your veins, your heart beats at a rapid rate, and your breathing becomes quick and shallow. The effect of the breathing technique feels almost like a sedative drug, because in order to hold your breath for seven seconds and then to exhale for eight—when your breath is so shallow and short—your body is forced to slow your heart rate. It has no choice. Holding your breath, and then slowly, deliberately exhaling for eight seconds, causes a chain reaction. It feels like going from a mad-dash sprint to a finish line to a slow, leisurely, calming stroll through the park.

You can literally feel your heart rate slow down, your mind get quieter, and your whole body physically relax. It washes over you like a calming, relaxing drug.

Now to the more technical details: People who are stressed or anxious are chronically  under-breathing, because stressed people breathe shortly and shallowly, and often even unconsciously hold their breath. By extending your inhale to a count of four, you are forcing yourself to take in more oxygen, allowing the oxygen to affect your bloodstream by holding your breath for seven seconds, and then emitting carbon dioxide from your lungs by exhaling steadily for eight seconds. The technique will effectively slow your heart rate and increase oxygen in your bloodstream, and may even make you feel slightly lightheaded which contributes to the mild sedative-like effect. It will instantly relax your heart, mind, and overall central nervous system because you are controlling the breath versus continuing to breathe short, shallow gasps of air.

DoTerra Essential Oils

DoTerra Essential Oils

I highly recommend the use of doTerra therapeutic essential oils to complement the HypnoHealing sessions.

Essential oils are a vibrational medicine, they resonate at the highest frequencies well above the human body itself and even above the human brain. When we utilise the essential oils the higher vibration fills us up, our body, our cells and our energy.

Essential oils accelerate the healing, it could happen 2-3 quicker. The reason is that the body is supported on the physical and on the energy level, helping the body to release the resistance and to heal.

On the physical level highest quality doTerra essential oils are the most finest healers. They are powerful tool for physical and emotional healing.

Here are some specific properties of doTerra essential oils. They are the purest and the best quality existing therapeutic oils. It is really amazing what nature does and what nature provides for us.


  • helps release grief, anger
  • related to self-worth
  • diffuse or apply on heart centre

Cilantro — “The Oil of Loyalty & Release”

Similar to Coriander essential oil, Cilantro oil invites us to live true to ourselves. Cilantro has powerful emotional-cleansing properties, which assist us in the process of “releasing.” It also assists us in shedding whatever is not in harmony with the True Self. By releasing what is incongruent, Cilantro encourages us to listen and follow our inner guidance.

Clove – “The Oil of Boundaries” 

Clove is especially helpful in breaking free of patterns of abuse by restoring the victim’s sense of self and helping them regain the strength to stand up for their needs.  Clove insists that we live true to ourselves and the Divine by establishing clear boundaries.


- supports those who are stuck or stagnant in life, helps release low frequencies energies

- helps emotions to flow again

- helps to release the throat chakra and give voice to expression of emotions

  • place on the kidneys (which is responsible for the flow of water in the body, water symbolising emotions and helping our emotions to flow again)
  • put  it on the bottoms of feet, apply to chest, back or inhale 4-5 times a day
  • biblically used to protect from negative energies


Every oil heals on emotional level and Geranium oil is a very powerful emotional healer. It has powerful resonance with the heart. Geranium called poor man’s rose. When you smell geranium you might notice the similarities (not!) but these oils have similar properties. It is incredible for infants, for children as it is so powerful on a heart, healing and nurturing the heart. It is the very finest oil for future mothers preparing to giving birth and receiving the baby with the open heart, to be open, to be whole. It is a great oil for inner work, inner healing.

-  “emotional healer”

- has powerful resonance with the heart

- good for infants and children

- good for preparing a mother for childbrith

- good for individuals whose heart has been injured

- good for inner child work / regression work

- place on the heart


- supports the body

- helps to reduce food cravings, balances appetite

- helps us to listen to the subtle messages of our body and to honour our body


Lavender calms fears. It calms hypertension, hyperactivity, it is relaxing. It specifically opens the throat and gives courage and strength to the individual to voice his/her feelings. It is a great oil that supports us in re-gaining our voice and speaking what we need to.

-lavender calms fears and helps to open the throat chakra

- provides courage and strength

- helps us to speak our truth

- place on the throat for finding the voice and on the back of the neck for becoming more flexible and improving relationships


Lemon is an oil for the brain. It is actually for the left brain, for our analytical brain. That’s the part of us that loves to organise and put is all together. Lemon activates the left brain, helps us to focus and to lemonlearn. It is a great oil for children who are having a difficult time concentrating at school and other difficulties at learning. Lemon helps us to increase memory. The left brain is connected with our identity, our ego. On the physical level lemon is great for the stomach, for the liver, digestion, it is alkalising. When through trauma self-worth, self-identity has been damaged lemon oil can come in and support that. It can help to re-build self-image.

- helps to support the left brain – the analytical one

- helps to define identity

- good for concentration

- improves focus & learning

- place it on the right side of the body

- good for digestion and liver

- the best for alkalising


Lemongrass is a liver cleansing oil. It helps to let go of anger.

  • good for individuals who are angry
  • place over liver (the centre for anger)


  • supports the heart; cleanses issues with the heart; helps with grief
  • provides with zest for life  -  place it on the heart centre


- good for those who are aloof and closed off in the heart centre and from life

- helps to connect more deeply with life


Murrh oil is all about connection with the earth, with the mothering energy.

- connection with the earth and our birth mother.

- good oil to place on infants feet soon after they are born.

Thyme – “The Oil of Releasing & Forgiving”

Thyme empties the heart of negativity by cleansing feelings of anger and resentment. It increases our tolerance and patience for others. Thyme restores the wounded heart to its natural state of love and forgiveness.

wild-orangeWild Orange 

Wild orange oil is for the right brain, for creative thoughts, spontaneity, it helps us to connect with our inner child. To be optimistic and hopeful. It is an oil of abundance. That abundance that you felt when you were 3 or 4 years old when you thought, life was easy, life was good.

- “oil of abundance” – supports the right brain (the creative brain); activates creativity     –   place it on the left side of the body.

Wonderful Blends:

ImmortelleImmortelle Anti-Aging Blend

  • has rare highest vibrational oils on the planet in one blend
  • provides health and vitality to the skin at the cellular level
  • promotes healthy cellular function
  • revitalising, youthful-looking skin
  • reduce inflammation
  • smoother, more radiant, healthier skin


On Guard Blend – “The Oil of Protection”

On Guard is a protective blend. It protects against harmful negative energies onguardand influences. This blends protective qualities extend beyond the physical level by aiding us in warding off unhealthy connections such as: co-dependency, parasitic relationships, people who are trying to suck our energy or negative “group thought.” It supports our immune system. Immune system is our energetic defence. Physical and emotional levels are absolutely connected. Mind, body, spirit are parts of one.


- helps to ward off pests (not just insect pests), but also individuals who are “pests”

- it’s a protective blend and would be good for sensitive / empathetic children who find it difficult to be in public places because they absorb everything around them (On Guard is another protective blend that would be good for this purpose)

Zendocrine Blend – “The Oil of Transition”

Zendocrine assists us in letting go of patterns or issues that no longer serve us. It is incredibly helpful when we want to make a serious change in lifestyle or break a bad habit.

Here are some more examples from a book “Emotional Healing with Essential Oils” by Daniel Macdonald:


• BALANCE – apply to balance energy field; apply this to the jaws, helps to allow them to release. Apply on the bottom of the feet for the whole body balance

why740x200• CITRUS BLISS – grief, loss -  rub around navel and inhale with alternate nostril breathing

• ELEVATION – after Serenity for anxiety same location, bringing in white light and unconditional love to help replace the removed emotion, bring a joyous state of being, inhale

• FRANKINCENSE – sedative quality allowing client to relax and release, helps to let go of painful memories, elevates meditation allowing divine connection, apply to pineal gland – center of forehead

• PURIFY – helps protect against misqualified energies sent towards you, psychic attack, negative vibes, etc… Apply this to the base of the neck and the sacrum – entry points for misqualified energies, use in diffuser at home to move negative energies out of home, office, etc….

• SANDALWOOD – elevates meditation allowing divine connections

• SERENITY – calming, release, anxiety, nervous tension – apply to solar plexus (above navel area 2 – 3 inches)

Hypnotherapy in Norwich and Wroxham

A good friend of mine requested a hypnotherapy treatment: strong, unwanted emotions were tearing into her well being and family relations.

Is hypnosis safe? Isn’t it harmful for your health and mental state? Is it ok to have a few hypnotherapy sessions?” she asked, like so many clients, before treatment.
So I resolved to pull down the veil and bring some light and clarity to a misty subject.

What is Hypnosis?
Paul McKenna, one of the most famous British hypnotherapists, equates our human mind with a computer. Like the computer which is re-programmable, our minds can elicit destructive and unhelpful thought processes or behaviour. Our minds are able to change their focus and engineer new, and greater outcomes.

Hypnosis is a mighty tool for re-wiring the conscious mind. Such is its power, that it can align the conscious and the sub conscious. As a deep relaxation form, hypnosis involves the fixation of attention and engages the imaginative spectrum of the mind.

Conscious and Subconscious MindsIt is a form that allows the human being to elevate above our conscious mindset. Multiple perspectives become visible to us-the unconscious library section is open. It is a powerful technique for bringing out the best in us.

We human beings are actually hypnotised on a daily basis without often knowing it. I am not talking about silly, embarrassing actions like dog barking! The hypnotic trance-like state is similar to those few seconds before you fall asleep or the first seconds of waking up. You are not really asleep and not really awake. It is a dream like state where your conscious mind has not ignited the chatter between two ears yet. It also could feel like the fixation of reading a book; watching TV; staring upon stationary or moving subjects; following the road whilst driving; losing your sense of time and what’s going on around you.

The Foundation of Hypnosis

Delving into the archives of ancient history, we find that the trance like state has been known and used for thousands of years. In fact, from the study of primitive peoples’ healing and religious ceremonies, there exist the elements vital to place people into a hypnotic state. By rhythmic chanting, monotonous drum beats, together with strained fixation of the eyes, the village shaman or priest is able to induce catalepsy of the body for healing to take place.

Benefits of Hypnosis

Is hypnosis effective?

According to a clinical hypnotherapist Wendi Friesen hypnosis can “gently release blocks and fears, and create a new inner belief that will set the wheels in motion to make changes in the way you think, feel and behave.”

The reason for hypnotherapy sessions is to implant new, powerful thoughts into your subconscious that will cause you to believe in your ability. Consequently your thoughts, feelings, actions, habits and successes will change.
Hypnosis is a relaxed, NATURAL state; there are no side effects to it, except letting go of stress, phobias, nervousness and unwanted habits. You are safe; it’s only a change, so with peace of mind and happiness gained, you can get on with your life.

“My life was locked in a prison cell, consumed with fear of panic attacks that made me petrified of leaving my ‘comfort zone’ which was in fact a prison.    Now my life is so full, I can do anything, even run down stairs! I have so many things to do & explore, places to see, experience new. I have a life again at last & I’m free to enjoy it. Thank you xxx (from my heart that is full of love & joy)” Jayne

When my clients come to see me they are not in a good space: they dislike (even hate) themselves, they feel unworthy, powerless, depressed, anxious or hugely frustrated. They can describe in little detail what’s going wrong and always struggle to see good things in their lives.

Today after a session I gave homework to do to a young man; he has just remembered how good he could feel about himself and about his life. I asked him to practice smiling to people. This exercise is way out of his comfort zone, he hasn’t looked into people’s eyes for 15 years – over half of his life.

Feeling good, experiencing emotions of joy, love, appreciation is our natural state of wellbeing. It’s easy, it is our birthright. Fear, despair, guilt require effort & resistance, they are trained states of the mind. Therefore, these low vibrational energy states can be changed on both conscious and subconscious levels.

Please help me to help this wonderful young man and others by simply smiling more!

You never know you might make somebody’s day or change someone’s life.

Nostalgia was my word for this morning. 21 years ago at the age of 21 I was expecting the biggest gift of my life to be born in a month or so. I was married for a couple of years then and still doing my 5 years metallurgy engineering degree in Tomsk in Siberia. I didn’t possess anything but a few pieces of clothes, most of which I knitted myself as the jumper on this picture. At the time during perestroika in Russia to simply buy milk & bread was a challenge. I still remember how cold that winter was but I Love that place on earth and I do miss my family. It was -32°C recently there and -42°C in Kargasok where my family now is.

Even if I were setting goals I wouldn’t be able to comprehend the expansion of life that I have had and am still experiencing.

My message I guess is simple: Trust in the unfolding. Our own resistance is the only thing that is holding us away from being absolutely happy, healthy and prosperous. As I am, you are exactly where you planed to be before you came into this physical world. Be easy about your life. Take a good care of yourself and those you love and remember that ALL is WELL.

Irina Valentino helps her clients to overcome negative emotions, fear and addictions.
