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.
