The Team Reporter from Stuff

Hey neighbours,

Good news – 2021 is set to be the year of the long weekend.

Five out of 10 public holidays will be Mondayised (or Tuesdayised in one case) next year, which means if you work a standard Monday to Friday week, you can look forward to some extended breaks.

Hey neighbours,

Good news – 2021 is set to be the year of the long weekend.

Five out of 10 public holidays will be Mondayised (or Tuesdayised in one case) next year, which means if you work a standard Monday to Friday week, you can look forward to some extended breaks.

In fact, once you’ve tacked on the weekends, you’ll end up getting a whopping 25 days off out of those 10 stat days, plus your region’s anniversary day.

Some supernatural help has been hired in the hope customers and staff at the Resene shop in Cambridge will one day be able to see their favourite furry face again.

Timmy, a handsome 4-year-old tabby, disappeared one weekend in August from his cat house at the rear of the premises. Customer Paul Norfolk and wife Gloria had looked all over town for their favourite store cat, along with the shop’s manager, Kerry Mason, and her staff.

“Timmy is such an icon around Cambridge, everyone knows him as the Resene cat,” Gloria said.

Just finished this wee job today for a lovely couple in Glendowie. A small deck off the main deck for the new clothesline with an Aluminum screen as a wind break as well as visual appeal. Also a small retaining wall to carry the flagstone pavers for access to the clothesline. The owners are going to pebble and bark around the pavers at there leisure. Im looking forward to seeing the end result. This deck was fixed off entirely with Stainless Steel screws, brackets etc, not a nail to be seen. Although the framing members are H4 treated all cuts were treated with timber preservative for added longevity. All this was overseen by site supervisor "Bob" the cat.
Hopefully he's happy with the result. 😁

Hi all
Summer is looming and I have been getting more requests for weight management Hypnotherapy.
I would like to take the opportunity here to answer some of the questions I get:

Can you make me do things I don’t want?
No. Not even the most skilled hypnotherapist could make you do something that you don’t want to do or is against your moral/ ethics. You would get out of the hypnotic trance if I would suggest something that is against your values.

How many sessions will it take?
That depends on a few factors:
Motivation. The higher or stronger your motivation the better. It needs to be important to you to change otherwise nothing will change. A strong motivator will keep you on track.
Stress factors at home and daily living.
The issue: for example “Weight management “takes much longer and is more tricky than “ freedom of smoking”

What does Hypnotherapy help with?
Anything that stress makes worse. Basically it helps you to change unwanted patterns, habits or behaviour without yearlong therapy. It’s like changing the software that was driving a habit and replacing it with one that is desired.

What is Hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy uses the conscious mind to get to the more powerful subconscious mind bypassing the critical conscious mind to help you to achieve your desired goals. It’s the temporary suspension of disbelief by keeping the conscious occupied then talking to the subconscious which likes dream language and metaphors and is a bit like a child.

Can anyone be hypnotised?
Yes, any mentally healthy person can and most mentally challenged can too. In fact we all go into trance regularly; in front of the TV, reading a book, driving home, before falling asleep and just after waking. Those are all natural trance states and we go in and out those states several times a day.

Can I learn to hypnotise myself?
Yes. When you have a Hypnotherapy sessions with me you will also learn how to hypnotise yourself . I think it’s such a valuable skill to have and I like to empower my clients.
