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.

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 [...]

The Netflix Saga – Managing your body’s natural internal pleasure reward system

These days it seems commonplace to talk about the latest show we are binge watching on Stan or Netflix. And if you’re not doing it, well that’s kind of not the norm. Then again, how many hours are we spending scrolling through Facebook and Instagram? Bingeing really. It’s all mind numbing, distracting you. Whether you’re [...]

In 2022 embrace flexibility and adaptability

It’s a new year, and from January 1 my social media and my inbox has been filled with information about New Year’s resolutions and setting your goals for the year. Everyone, every celebrity and who’s who that I follow is telling me and probably you to have goals, and if you should have goals or [...]

The Power of Words

Do you remember the saying, “Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me”? I wonder if a parent, a caregiver, teacher, sibling or some well-meaning elder told that to you as a little kid. And I bet you tried your hardest to believe the person, didn’t you? But long after [...]

Do We Have A Choice?

Have you ever stopped to consider just how much power your thoughts have? If you think about it, your thoughts influence your feelings, which in turn influence your actions and behaviours and these ultimately create your outcomes. Wouldn’t you want to have some choice then over the kind of thoughts you have, and what you [...]

Life on the Other Side

As Freedom Day looms for those of us living in NSW, there’s a mixture of excitement and trepidation. I think that for many of us, we are looking forward to coming out of lockdown whilst at the same time feeling a sense of anxiety about the future and what it will look like. Coming out [...]

Suicide Prevention Day 2021

Many of us have been touched by suicide and the loss of a loved one, family member or friend. Whatever their reason, whatever the cause, for some of these people, their emotional pain became too much and they considered suicide as an option of escape. And for us left behind, we very often don’t have [...]

Lockdown lingers – Take a deep breath, a longer exhale, NSW, you got this!

As NSW heads into week 7 of its lockdown, and the thought of another week of watching daily numbers seems to be the norm, I contemplated the vast range of emotions everyone is experiencing at the moment. Experiencing anger, frustration, fear, loneliness, boredom, anxiety, rage and other so called “negative feelings" can be difficult. And [...]

Self-care – make time and space for self-care essentials

Another day, another week in lockdown. It seems that is the way of the world and the new reality we are coming to terms with. Even here in Australia where Covid numbers are comparatively lower than in other countries around the world, this little critter has an insidious power that is threatening both our economic, [...]
