About Janine Rod

As a psychologist and hypnotherapist I hope to create the highest quality of care for you in a supportive and nurturing environment. I work psycho dynamically which means that you and I will look at how your conscious and unconscious minds interact and influence your thoughts, behaviours and attitudes. I am not rigid in the kind of therapy I use with you; each person is an individual and I tailor your sessions to suit your specific needs. My therapy tends to be more varied than others, and I incorporate techniques from a variety of evidence -based sources, rather than relying on a single system of intervention. I offer you a safe, supportive environment in which you can communicate, gain insight, and develop new skills. I listen to what you say, what you feel and what you need in order to help you to clarify your inner conflicts, confront the barriers to your success and well-being, and reach your goals.

Reframe your thinking for long-lasting changes to your diet and health

Earlier this year SBS aired a show called The Truth About Your Health" where health law and professor Timothy Caufield said that “By the time a woman is 45 she will have tried 61 diets.” That’s an alarming statistic and very unhealthy. Australians, and it’s not just women, have an unhealthy obsession about their weight [...]

The Flight or Fight Response

The fight or flight response is a concept developed by Harvard physiologist Walter Cannon. It is our body's automatic reaction that prepares us to confront or run away from perceived danger. It’s automatic because mother nature created us to react that way. It begins in the amygdala, an almond-sized gland near our temple. When it [...]

How do you behave in a conflict situation?

Imagine that you’re having a disagreement with someone, things get heated, your emotions kick in, and you react. How do you react, and how does that reaction affect you and the other person? Naturally your reaction will be different in different situations. When your partner or kids upset you, your reaction may be very different [...]

Relationships are the gardens for health and longevity

Satisfying relationships not only make us happy, they also influence our long-term health as much as getting enough sleep, eating healthy, and not smoking. It is well known that those with strong social connections benefit mentally, emotionally, and physically—with lowered mortality rates compared to those who are socially isolated. The reverse is also true, however, for as fulfilling and satisfying a [...]

Uncovering The Source Of Your Inner Saboteur – You!

It’s estimated that a typical person makes 300 to 400 self-evaluations every day. That’s a lot of opportunities for self-improvement IF all or even half of those self-evaluations were positive. Unfortunately, up to 80% of those inner evaluations are negative and destructive. It’s almost impossible to maintain a positive attitude at work when your inner [...]
