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.

Friendship – Be Around People Who Feed Your Soul, Not Around Those Who Eat It

Don’t walk in front of me, I may not follow. Don’t walk behind me, I may not lead. Just walk beside me and be my friend. Most of us have at least one friend, if not more. Some of us have many friends and large circles of friends from different areas of their life, whereas [...]

Love thyself – self-love and acceptance

If I asked you to make a list of all the people in the world you loved, would you include yourself on that list? And if it was on that list, would it be number one or how far down would it be? “Why is self-love important?” you might ask. You probably think that self-love [...]

Call a truce on food – There’s no good food, bad food

Is there a food that you have labelled good or bad? A food that is off limits when you are trying to be good, and watch what you eat? A food that you know if you have one mouthful, you will have no control thereafter. For me, that food would have to be chocolate cake. [...]

Keep Calm and Stay Body Positive

So many women I see at my practice feel extremely self conscious and ashamed about their bodies. Why is that? I said in my post about Staying body positive back in March... "The thoughts you have about your body are influenced by the messages you received from parents, caregivers, siblings, peers, your culture, the media, [...]

Remember if you are not speaking it, you are storing it, and that gets heavy (Christina Isabel)

Life is busy. So much to do, so little time. So much time spent prioritising the things that we think are important and relegating the things that perhaps seem less so. In our fast-paced lives, slowing down, taking time to notice how we are truly feeling is often ignored, numbed, or pushed down in the [...]

Nations all over the world choose a month each year to focus on mental health.

Traditions and rituals enhance our overall wellbeing

As another Easter is behind us and we contemplate the value of the long weekend, our ability to celebrate with family and friends is even more special during these COVID times. Being able to raise a glass, recite blessings or participate in communal prayer, acts as a buffer against anxiety, and allows us to embrace [...]

A form of hypnotherapy called RTT can help get to the root cause of issues quicker

Yesterday I received another desperate call from a lady looking for an appointment with a psychologist.  She had been to see her GP last year for a referral.  She called several psychologists and left her name on waiting lists.  Only one has called her back.  This is not the first time I have heard this.  [...]

Stay body positive – be less judgemental of yourself

The difference between a good body image day and a bad body image day has very little to do with the number on your scale and the size of your body. It only has to do with the thoughts in your head and your long-held beliefs. How many times have you gotten onto a scale [...]
