How long will it take

How long is a piece of string?

This depends on so many factors – like, how intense the anxiety is, how long you have had it, how quickly you respond. How much you want to make the change and how much effort you will put in, how many stresses you have had in your life, and how intense they have been, your genetics, your environment, current stresses, family and friend support.

What also determines how long you will want to come in for is what is your desired goal. e.g. some people want just a bit of relief, and other people want to resolve their anxiety.

I have observed from working with hundreds of people that people go through stages. And most people start making progress from very early on, within a couple of sessions often the very first session. But getting people closer to resolving their anxiety take several months. Often people who are on meds, will begin to reduce them around the 3 month mark, because they are making such amazing progress.

Most people will be coming in for two sessions a week – if intense we ask people to come more in the begining.

Your progress is monitored the whole time and we will work with you to help you get your desired goal.

 

What is the best way to get started?

There are two options:

  1. Come in for a free 20min consult – this is recommended for people who have lots of questions or if you feel unsure or a are a little bit skeptical. We understand that many people with anxiety have been told many things in the past , and tried many things that have not worked. We are different, but you may not want to take our word for it, you also may wish to meet us first. Because we will be working together for a while, it is important that you connect to us and enjoy our space.
  2. Come in for an initial consultation – and get started right away.

If for some reason you still not sure and not quite ready – we highly recommend that you read our book.

What is the difference between the free 20min consult and Initial Consulation

The free 20min consult is a service that we offer, to help people decide if our process is right for you.

You can come in meet us, and ask any questions that you may have, we will do a brief history, and quick assessment and explain the process and what you can expect. If we don’t think we can help you, we will tell you!

The Initial Consultation is for those who have already decided that they want to start, and want a First session.

Do I have to come in to the office for the free 20 min consutlation?

Yes – unless you live outside of Auckland and are exploring coming for sessions from afar – if so please contact Emily.

Does what you do help with all types of anxiety?

We get amazing results with so many people, but sadly we cannot help everyone.

We can not help people who have anxiety that is being caused by a medical condition e.g. if your anxiety is coming from a Pernicious Anemia – you need to go to your medical doctor for help.

There are a variety of conditions that cause anxiety, however the large majority of cases are not from medical/pathological conditions. In the majority of cases, we can help.

We see amazing results with people who have:

  • Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD)
  • Panic Attacks
  • Social Anxiety
  • Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • Mild forms of OCD

Sometimes the person who suffers from anxiety will also have depression, fatigue issues or even sleeping challenges, such as insomnia. We get amazing results with this too.

There are many other types of anxiety, like specific phobias, derealisation and depersonalisation.

If you curious but not not sure, then please call us, or even better request a free 20 minute consultation.

 

Is anxiety just a head thing, caused just by ones thinking or thoughts?

NO!

Or more accurately very rarely. It often appears this way, but what is really happening is that the nervous system is stuck in a ‘defensive physiology’ and this creates a thinking pattern and we become aware of our negative, worrisome or fear based thinking.

Yes this fear based thinking then causes the anxiety to be worse, and keeps it around but often it is not the cause nor is it JUST in your mind/thinking.

It is in your body as much as it is in your mind and if we go deeper it is actually in our nervous system.

 

 

Why do you work with BOTH the body and Mind?

Because this is the best and most powerful way to get sustainable results.

 

How do you work with the Nervous System?

We use a variety of techniques to achieve this outcome. The work is called Reorganisational Healing. We apply these concepts with a specific focus in helping people overcome their anxiety and more importantly reclaim their life.

Video – maybe:)

What techniques do you use?

More importantly than the techniques that we use is the framework that we use.

This is so important and often the core reason why people try things to make change and have the process not work. We have a process called the WellnessShift that helps people to move out of being stuck in their symptom and learn how to focus and move towards the solution.

We use a set of techniques that are under the umbrella Reorganisational Healing.

One of the main techniques we use which has some great scientific evidence backing its efficacy is called Network Spinal Analysis. This is a very powerful application that can be used in a number of ways, commonly used as a health discipline but is also a very powerful tool for personal transformation.

We use it to help our clients break free of living a life that i being consumed by anxiety learn to live a life of greater freedom.

What is your background - formal education

Dr Dov Phillips BSc, Bchiro

BSc (Pharmacology)

Bchiro

After studying pharmacology (drugs) I went to the largest drugless health care profession (chiropractic) at chiropractic college I was introduced to Network Spinal Analysis (NSA). At that stage NSA was a chiropractic technique – gentle – non manipulative. NSA has evolved and can be practiced in a way that no longer focused on the chiropractic objective.

I do not practice as a chiropractor, I do NOT have a chiropractic clinic. I have a wellness clinic where we use reorganisational healing.

This is my background, it is important because it lay the foundation to my ability to work with people so effectively and have a different outlook so I did not see people with the same blinkers on.

 

 

Is this suitable for all ages.

Yes

Will this work if I am on medication?

Yes.

One of the most rewarding parts of my job is when clients tell me that they are able to come off their medication. Some have been on it for decades too. Many people don’t want to be taking drugs everyday but because nothing else has worked for them they feel like they are trapped.

If you are taking medications, it is fine to start care, many people have. One of our goals is to help you come off your medication and live the life you were meant to. Remember you were not born into this world, needing to have drugs, just so you can be ok!

Of course this all depends on what medications you are on and every situation is unique so we treat you this way.

 

What are your success rates?

We have great results that are so impressive that we are exploring doing a clinical study to demonstrate this.

Of course we do not have a 100% success rate, and we have had many people who ‘try it out’ for a couple of sessions and no surprises they are not fixed. This is not a quick fix!

If you want results you have to be realistic that getting better is a process. You will notice benefits from early on – often the first or second visit but climbing a mountain even a small one, can not be done in one or two steps.

Most of my clients are blown away at how different their life is now, and amazed that what we have accomplished is even possible.
