Welcome, I’m Donna Cochrane, a Holistic Functional Nutritionist, Board Certified Hypnotherapist and Counsellor. With over fifteen years’ experience working in the fields of health, wellbeing and integrative therapies, I have now consolidated my work to specialise in neuro nutrient therapies; balancing the brain and body for optimal health. I work with people in person at my Gold Coast Australia clinic and on line.
If you have found my page its likely you have already been through a lot trying to find a path to wellness. In fact, you are probably still suffering with painful symptoms such as sadness, anxiety, low self-esteem, panic attacks, fear, low energy, lack of focus and other issues.
Maybe you have even been told that medication and talk therapy are the only things that will really help you with your symptoms. But deep down inside, you know there must be a better, natural alternative. I am here to tell you that there is another way, although sometimes it can really take some digging to get to the real cause.
I love my work and feel so privileged to be able to assist each client in reaching their full potential. Having worked and studied in both the USA and Australia, I have a wide range of experience and clinical understanding to draw upon to help clients. As a psychotherapist and nutritionist I am uniquely positioned to help you find out if your concerns are biological or emotional.
I specialise in working with mood disorders, specifically depression, anxiety and food/substance cravings. I also have experience and personal interest in working with insomnia, grief and pain management.
I am more than happy to talk to groups and organisations interested in my work as a neuro nutrient specialist. Education in natural solutions to emotional health is becoming more and more critical in this modern age. Neuro nutrient therapy is simple, natural, has incredible benefits and a wide range of applications.
I am also able to structure a corporate presentation around your companies needs and interests. In todays fast paced world it is more important than ever to be aware of employees physical and mental health. Contact me for more information on general presentations, group talks or 1:1 plans for executives.
The amazing benefits of targeted brain nutrition
What is Neuro Nutrient Therapy?
A neuro nutrient specialist helps you get to the root cause of what we call your "false moods", by providing natural remedies for anxiety, depression, insomnia, cravings and more. You may be feeling really down and sad or stressed out and overwhelmed. Maybe you’re lacking energy and drive, you don't sleep as well as you used to or you just cannot get a handle on your sugar cravings. These symptoms and many others like them can be a thing of the past by simply balancing your brains neurotransmitters. Utilising the latest advancements in holistic health methodologies (assessments and testing) we can rebuild the specific neurotransmitters that you are depleted in. Using individualised nutritional recommendations, high quality supplementation and accessing deep brain wave states for lasting change, you are able to rebalance your emotions and those false moods will be a thing of the past.
What issues do you help with?
My approach integrates holistic nutrition, targeted supplementation and personalised guided meditation. My specialities include;
Maybe you think what you are dealing with could not be helped with just nutrition. I work on finding the real causes of what's troubling you and resolve symptoms naturally.
How many sessions will I need?
That depends on what we will be working on. I work very personaly with each client and therefore only take on clients who I really feel I can help the most. As all of my work is highly individualised to your specific needs I will advise during the first session how many appointments you will need. This is a process where we work collaboratively together so that upon completion you will know exactly what to do going forward to keep optimal health.
Do I need to take supplements?
Initially we will work together on wholesome nutrition and lifestyle. The specific supplements I recommend are necessary to supercharge your results. It would be wonderful if we could get all the vitamins, minerals and amino acids we need for optimal health through diet alone, sadly that just isn't the case anymore. I see plenty of clients that eat well and are still plagued by bad moods or food addictions. The good news is the extra supplementation is just a temporary measure while we rebuild the areas that you are depleted in.
Can you explain the neuro training?
As a board certified hypnotherapist and counsellor I incorporate psychotherapeutic techniques to help you make changes to your thoughts, feelings, habits or behaviours. With hypnotherapy I help you to access deeper brainwave states so change can happen safely and easily, in this state you are able to re-wire your neural pathways to your highest benefit. Each client also receives a personalised guided meditation to listen to between appointments.
What about the cost?
As sessions are personalised to your unique goals and needs your programme will be discussed during your first appointment. My goal is to get you feeling better as quickly as possible. The beauty of neuro nutrition is it is incredibly effective, so you avoid needing long term therapy.
