Does Clinical Hypnotherapy really work and
do the effects last a lifetime? I'll bet these
testimonials answer those questions for you.
Words cannot begin to describe the joy, new lease of life that
you have unlocked from within me. Thank you very much for all
your time, patience, love and encouragement.
You are an awesome person.
I went to Trish to get help for dealing with my stress levels in a
way that would not involve medication. From our first meeting,
things began to change and improve. In a very short time
everything had turned around for me and I have not looked back.
Trish was also able to help a young family member overcome a
strong phobia in only two visits.
Thank you so much Trish for helping my family when we needed
it. We are truly grateful to you for all you have done for us.

Hypnotherapy is a powerful tool to help people function normally
after feeling their lives are out of control or not worth living.
Wouldn't have done it without your help Trish!
Life is good! Thanks for being a miracle worker.

Fungi plan to tackle lantana
Northland biosecurity experts have
asked the Environmental Protection
Authority for permission to import and
release two species of host-specific
fungi to tackle one of the world's most
Lantana camara is a serious prob-
lem in Northland where it forms dense
thickets that invade a wide variety of
areas from native and exotic forests to
domestic gardens, roadsides, sand
dunes, quarries and wasteland.
Lantana can be poisonous to people
and grazing stock. It has strong-
smelling leaves, especially if they're
crushed, and also produces fruit that's
attractive to birds, which then spread
its seeds to uninfested sites.
In a bid to tackle lantana, the North-
land Regional Council has asked the
Environmental Protection Authority
(EPA) to allow it to import and release
two species of rust fungi -- puccinia
lantanae from Europe and prospodium
tuberculatum from Australia.
The EPA is now calling for public
submissions on the regional council's
application, which can be made via let-
ter, by email to submissions@ epa.
govt.nz or through the EPA's website
The full application will be available
at www.epa.govt.nz/consultations and
submissions close on February 21.

Make great school lunches healthy
Healthy option: Sandwich wraps make a
healthy lunchtime choice.
With the start of the school year
looming 5+ A Day is encouraging
parents to think outside the square
when considering school lunches.
5+ A Day nutritionist Claire
Turnbull says school lunches provide a
great opportunity to work more fruit
and vegetables into a child's diet.
She says a great way to get children
eating more fruit and vegetables is by
making it fun and involving them in
While kids may be reluctant to eat
whole pieces of fruit, they love food
they can eat with their fingers.
Choose colourful fruit and vege-
tables and chop them up into bite-sized
pieces that can be stored in small con-
tainers or slipped into sandwiches and
Ms Turnbull says children enjoy
helping their parents in the kitchen
and are more likely to eat lunches they
have helped make themselves.
She also recommends introducing
children to new foods at home before
including them in their lunchboxes.
Lunches can be kept cool during the
warmer months by laying a chilly
block at the bottom of the child's
lunchbox or bag. This can be done by
freezing a small bottle of water and
adding it to the box.
5+ A Day was launched in 1994 by the
non-profit organisation United Fresh NZ.
