Magic of the Mind

The mind is fascinating and powerful. Carlie Wacker had a hypnotherapy session with Paulina Nowak that was magic!

As a child growing up in Poland, Paulina Nowak had no idea that her highly unusual dreams would later be the very thing that would be her calling and complete a journey of self-discovery.

Paulina dealt with some heavy emotional experiences early on including the suicide of her father when she was only 13 years old; witnessing the death of her brother-in-law in a car accident; then her mum’s passing.

At 18 years of age she was carrying the weight of the world on her shoulders, but it was many years later after suppressing feelings and channelling her strength into corporate business that she really identified that her true skill was in the art of hypnotherapy. It turns out those odd dreams were in fact her unique ability to tap into the subconscious mind and bring about emotional wellbeing.

Today Paulina knows all about brain waves, dream stages, hypnosis, and the power of a single thought. After gaining her qualifications as a certified hypnotherapist she was finally able to share her magic officially (and I call it magic because that is my experience with her – magic)!

Here is my story: a Noosa girl with a few roadblocks, an open mind but a fear of traumatising the hypnotherapist more than myself in a session.

I have never been hypnotised in a treatment scenario before (I did once audition for a reality television show that required me to be hypnotised and perform silly acts like the chicken dance but that’s another story).

As I entered the inconspicuous treatment room in Noosa Junction I felt at ease. Paulina has a very calming, soft energy and a lovely voice – it was comforting. I explained to her that I’m not sure what could come up in my session, but she reassured me that the space is safe and what happens in the Hypnotherapist Noosa office stays there (forever locked away)!

Truthfully, I knew that my roadblocks could stir up some emotions and I was expecting to cry and let go of what needed to go. I wasn’t expecting what happened during the session, but it changed me in the best way possible.

It was quite easy for me to enterinto a hypnotised state – I was aware and remember what I talked about the whole time which surprised me. I thought I would be in a deep sleep and not be aware of what I was saying.

Paulina asked me to go back to certain times and picture experiences from those times and the things I visualised were memories I did not even know I had.

Simple life things like swimming in my childhood pool and laughing. Those memories seemed insignificant to me but with Paulina’s skills at extracting emotions connected to these moments I was truly able to let go of some negative unwanted feelings that had lodged into my subconscious and stopped me being the best version of myself.

We journeyed to some life experiences that made me sad, at one point I remember crying so hard that I was having trouble breathing – that big heaving cry was obviously what I needed because I haven’t cried since.

It let something go. At other times during my 2-hour session I laughed hysterically like it was the happiest and funniest thing in the history of the world. I was so exhausted and puffy eyed after the session that I had to go home and have a little lie down.

I was not expecting to feel much different after my session, but I did. I felt lighter and I now feel like I know myself much better. I have identified what triggers my negative thoughts and can direct my thinking away from it. I cannot believe that such little, insignificant life experiences as a kid can impact the mind so powerfully.

The mind is fascinating – it is capable of anything. I am now super keen to explore hypnotherapy to address other issues like lack of energy. I want more Paulina magic!

Hypnotherapy is the key to evaporating unwanted behaviours or feelings.

It can be used to kick addictions like smoking and drinking. It can help tackle phobias or feelings of anger, guilt or depression. 

Paulina made my experience enjoyable when I thought it might be traumatic.

She provides a safe place to let go of the past. I would totally recommend hypnotherapy to anyone that is ready to live their best life.

Hypnotherapist Noosa – Paulina Nowak offers traditional hypnotherapy, Rapid Transformational Therapy (RTT) which combines principles of hypnotherapy, psychotherapy, NLP, CBT and neuroscience plus retreats and self-hypnosis recordings.
