Today is a day for remembering

September 9, 2022
Today is certainly a day triggering memories for me.  I came to Australia, to Sydney, as a small girl in 1951. As a child who had loved maypole and other traditional English dancing, I enthusiastically joined my primary school’s group of 12 dancing the Wool Dance which was to be performed for the King on […]

Lean into it he said

September 9, 2022
It’s two and a half months now since I severely broke my back and picking myself up has been much harder than I thought. I spoke to a valued business mentor who told me to “just lean into it”, make it my story and help me to get on with life.  Wow, that’s harder than […]

OMG, How sad! And why?

September 1, 2022
I’m so saddened by what happened to John Farnham.  He is an Aussie Icon and collectively loved.  His son asked him years ago to stop smoking cigarettes which he did, but he replaced them with cigars. Why, oh why, oh why don’t people ‘get’ the results of smoking. I hate seeing the results of smoking. […]

It's all about Mindset

August 25, 2022
The way we respond to everything that happens in our lives is all about mindset.  Sure, our habits built up over time and some were consciously taught and/or learned, but how we respond to these and retain them is all about mindset. My job as a hypnotherapist is to help you to become aware of […]

Is your reaction reasonable?

June 8, 2022
There are so many things that create a reaction, and it is worth taking time to ask is this reaction reasonable. Sometimes if we step back and think about why the other person felt that way, we can learn a lot. This happened here yesterday.  Four years ago, I bought a house in a village […]

And the reason is...

June 1, 2022
I turn 80 in a few days so why do I still work?  There is always a reason, and this is very simple.  It’s because I care deeply, both about smokers and about people who have suffered from trauma. I explained this to a smoker this week.  My father chain smoked a pipe most of […]

Let’s look at pain management

May 24, 2022
I am sharing an excellent article that came out this week stating that drugs can’t cure pain. Raising concern about medicine’s inability to deal with chronic pain. I already know from my training and my own experience with pain that initially pain an urgent warning... this is hurting, stop now. At this initial stage, yes, […]

Managing your mind... its yours so own it...

May 12, 2022
I’m working on building a membership to help people minimise stress by being able to understand and manage your mind. You can change the way your brain works simply by using your mind differently.  “It’s not me… it‘s my brain and I can change it”.  My brain is a computer and it had been programed […]

When stuff happens, do you get bitter or better?

May 4, 2022
Bitter or better... you always have a choice about how you look at situations however bad they are. Going over and over an issue in your mind makes it worse.  It builds more connections between your neurones, and it causes physical changes in your brain that makes the issue harmful. The thing is that stress, […]

Your Stories of Healing


What is hypnosis?
It is a deeply relaxed, trance-like state where you are able to talk directly to your unconscious mind and make any changes that you want to make.
It is a wonderful state for enhanced learning. You have heightened focus.
What does hypnosis feel like?
You know that lovely half awake and half asleep state first thing in the morning. That is how you feel while in hypnosis.
Can you make me do stuff that I don’t want to do?
No. Your unconscious mind will always stop you from doing anything it considers harmful. The people you see in state hypnosis being idiots, actually like doing that. The hypnotist selects people he can see are going to cooperate and are happy to be the center of attention on stage.
Is it safe to drive home after hypnosis?
Yes. I do check you are fully awake before you go and have water you can drink if you need to. We chat for a while afterwards.
What does Escape from Anxiety involve?
I start by asking you what feelings you want to move from and what you want to move to. I also ask for a brief dot point list of traumatic things that have happened to you so that I can give you your success path or escape map. Then we do a deep relaxation and discovery of who you really are. We move on to develop a deeper understanding of why you have been hurt and controlled so that we can get rid of the harm and move on into the future that you design.
Do you get rid of the memories of trauma?
No, some things can’t be unseen and unheard, but you can let the pain go. You defeat the cause and in the process you become stronger and wiser.
How does weight-loss hypnosis work?
There are two main areas I focus on with you. The first is why you have developed the habits that caused you to put on and hold weight. This is often associated with trauma and we deal with that.
The other main focus is on changing your relationship with food and eating so that it becomes easy to choose healthy food and reject the harmful.
What about a virtual gastric band?
Some hypnotherapists use this for all weight loss clients, and I can if requested although I prefer to use a process I call “Learn to love your stomach” where you become more conscious of your stomach and its needs and size.
What about Quit Smoking? Is it really possible to quit in only one session?
Yes most people are able to quit in a single session and if you do need more help you can come back free. Over 600 people have successfully managed to quit in a single session and if you want to, you can as well.
