“The purpose of psychotherapy is to set people free.” Rollo May
Psychotherapy supports clients to raise Self-awareness around unconscious thought and feeling patterns that determine their behavior, various mood states and cause blockages in a person’s ability to live a fulfilling life that meets their full potential. By better understanding the patterns of your mind, heart, relationships, and the way you do life in general, you will have access to greater levels of clarity, choice and personal power to create a life that is more consciously your own.
Issues Psychotherapy can help you move beyond
The Self Love Project
Eloise believes Self-Love is ultimately an altruistic pursuit. “When a person commits to both the art and science of Self-Love, the positive effects are felt first by the individual, of course, but soon ripple out to impact their friends, family, colleagues and significant others as well,”
The Self-Love Project is a 6 week program which supports you to cultivate 12 simple, research-based daily habits across four key pillars for physical, emotional and mental wellness, in as little as 20 minutes a day.
Commit to The Self-Love Project’s pillars – Mindfulness, Happiness, Food & Movement – and watch your inner-strength, emotional stability and capacity for optimism grow. It’s worked for many others, it will work for you too.

pH Clinic Psychotherapy Testimonials
“The Self-Love Project provided me with much needed practical, yet playful tools to get out of my negative and confused state of mind and set me back on track to seek happiness. I loved how it was simplified into four pillars as it made it easy to follow and apply.”
Maria Strohmeier, Accountant
“Learning how to really speak my heart has honestly made such a huge difference to my life – very profound experience and healing. Also, learning to love myself without force has helped me to really find my new baseline of self-love and to open up and connect more with myself and with other people. Hearing other’s experiences in the group gave me a greater understanding of how self-love works for other people which then helped with my own insights into my relationship with myself. It was really great to have that personal touch with the live facilitator.
Kimberly Banfield, Soul Purpose Coach
“I would literally recommend The Self-Love Project to anybody… no matter how confident, smart, funny, charming, or physically fit they may be. I’m recommending The Self-Love Project to anybody seeking a better understanding of themselves, and others.”
Oli Oulsnam, Architect
Inflammation and Muscle Repair
Cryotherapy stimulates our anti-inflammatory proteins, promoting mobility and circulation. The increase in blood flow stimulated by this therapy kickstarts muscle cell turnover and hence initiates deep repair. The de-inflammation of the body supports a reduction in chronic pain and works to relieve sports related injuries. A decrease in joint stiffness is another wonderful benefit, initiating a reduction in arthritis related suffering.
The invigoration of the body during Cryotherapy boosts collagen production to promote anti-aging and skin rejuvenation. In line with this production of collagen, Cryotherapy assists in improving eczema and psoriasis. Due to the increase in cell turnover promoted by increased circulation, acne scarring and sun damage can also be healed at an increased rate.
As Cryotherapy works to reduce inflammation, oxidative levels of stress are consequently reduced. Oxidative stress is associated with cognitive decline, meaning Cryotherapy can be used to treat dementia and other age related impairments. Many mental health conditions can be linked to inflammation, with studies supporting the use of Cryotherapy in the ease of depression and anxiety.
Migraines and Fatigue
Migraines can be the result of inflamed proteins, meaning the application of Cryotherapy to the neck area can allow for a reduction in chronic pain experienced as a result of migraines. The increased blood circulated also stimulates the nervous system, promoting a sense of alertness and increased energy levels for those experiencing fatigue.
Cryotherapy exposes the body to extremely cold temperatures for just a few minutes at a time creating vasoconstriction of the peripheries’ blood supply. This pushes all blood back into the vital organs including the filtration organs of the Liver, Spleen and Kidneys allowing them to process toxins. When the body warms back up the peripheries’ blood supply dilates and returns clean and newly oxygenated blood to your muscles, joints, fascia, skin etc.
You are in the Cryo Cabin for a maximum of 3 minutes, localised treatment times vary depending on the application but due to the extremely low temperatures, a maximum of 3 minute intervals at a time is all this is necessary.
Your funkiest underwear, strictly NO underwire bras ladies, no jewellery and you cannot come straight from the Sauna or Gym as you must have NO moisture on the skin. We’ll give you a robe to wear to and from the device to the change room.
Great question! It feels cold but as its a dry cold its tolerable! It gradually builds in intensity and by the end you feel invigorated and super human. It’s 2-3 minutes so very managable, you can even practice some Wim Hoff breathing and your favourite dance moves in the cabin.
Yes, we are very proud to be the first in Australia to have installed the safest and most technologically advanced Cryotherapy machine on the market – the CryoCabin. The mist encircling your body inside the Cryocabin is Nitrogen, a non-toxic gas that makes up over 70% of the air we breathe. Your head is above the top of the Cryocabin at all times and your hands and feet are well protected by insulating boots and gloves. A highly trained Technician stays with you throughout the session monitoring your body’s response. Oxygen monitors, alarms and other safe guards are also used to track your progress. You are able to leave the Cryocabin at any time. Rest assured, client safety is our highest priority.
The full body cabin is not suitable for pregnant women, however it is totally safe if you are breastfeeding. If you are pregnant, we can administer the spot treatment XCryo for areas of concern eg knees, shoulders, lower back, face etc.

This really depends on the reasons you are wanting to use CRYO and also dependant on how your body uniquely responds to the treatment. For this reason, we recommend that new clients trial Cryo for about 3 sessions. For general wellbeing, we recommend 1-2 sessions per week. For pain management, muscle repair and recovery and injury management, we recommend as often as your body feels you need the treatment. For skin rejuvenation, raising of the metabolism and accelerated injury recovery, we recommend 3 sessions per week.
