Many roads have led me to hypnosis” I was always fascinated by how we could use our subconscious mind to affect positive change. It was the missing link for me – in how to get that little voice in our heads to work positively for me instead of against me . I love all things hypnosis. I  love to educate people how hypnosis works which basically, via the hypnotic process installs a new positive program of their choice in your subconscious mind.   A program that will permanently install that new behavior, thinking they desire. All using the power of suggestion and reinforcement of those suggestions. All done with your permission and total agreement of the subconscious and conscious mind.

With hypnosis, you can get over a fear or phobia. You can get over a relationship- leave it in the past. You can reduce anxiety and depression. In fact, with hypnosis, you can create new empowering beliefs that stick so you can achieve those goals- new responses and behaviors. Hypnosis is a recognized science and an accepted valid therapy by many medical professionals. In fact, there are full-time hypnotherapists at the Monash Hospital in Melbourne who use hypnosis to relieve and get rid of Irritable Bowel Syndrome.

I love what I do and it is a privilege that people trust me to help them with the power of hypnosis. I am constantly thrilled and overjoyed when my clients stop smoking with hypnosis lose weight or get over a fear or phobia. I particularly love to help clients slay anxiety- the modern scourge of our society. The human mind is so untapped and we still don’t understand how hypnosis really works – perhaps we don’t need to.

I have been a practicing hypnotherapist for 7 years now, I started in my early 50’s as a Hypnotherapist. I did not go back to work really until my 40’s and from there never stopped venturing into new territories and learnings. Age is no barrier to achieving success in any area of your life. As long as you have your mental faculties and good health. Hypnosis requires you to be a storyteller and I was always imaginative and good at telling stories. It is a collaborative process between the hypnotist and the client.

I am the facilitator and the client is my willing participant. I have now added hypnotic massage to my skillset and practice and am excited to give therapeutic suggestions whilst giving therapeutic massage a very powerful combination of therapies for optimum results. I have much more to learn and will never stop. I am a mother of three daughters and stepmom to a daughter and son and grandmother of three girls. I have been married to Jim for  26 years.

We live in Cairns in Far North Queensland where every day is sunny and then some. So lucky to live here now for 3 years enjoying the fabulous climate and rich beauty of Cairns. My health is my priority as without that I cannot work or enjoy life. It has sustained me through hard times over 35 years and is really my no 1 priority.  My background was a fitness instructor for 25 years and now have just completed my Certificate 111 in Fitness at 63 years young.
