I became a hypnotherapist in 2016, as hypnotherapy helped me overcome many adversities in my own life, and I wanted to be able to provide these incredible benefits to others. In 2010 I drank, I smoked, and I was overweight at 110 kilos. I was an epileptic and suffered very badly from depression even though I was on anticonvulsants and antidepressants, I was still having seizures and was still very depressed. I had a weight reduction operation that same year, thinking that the reason I was depressed was because I was obese. This however was not the case. My depression only got worse. In 2014 I hit rock bottom. After this event, I decided that I needed to take ownership of my life. With the careful help and monitoring by my GP and naturopath I came off all of the medication, slowly, over a 9-month period. While I was moving in the right direction, I was still depressed. A good friend suggested that I try hypnotherapy, and I was open to giving it a go. The experience was amazing – it changed my life. Hypnotherapy gave me the tools and skills I needed so that I could release all the negative chatter going around in my head. For me the change was so profound that I knew I needed to share this with others. I completed my Practitioner of Hypnotherapy certification in 2016, and have since completed my Master Practitioner of Hypnotherapy, Master Practitioner of Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Master Practitioner of Timeline Transformations and Life Coaching. Before I became a hypnotherapist, I was a trainer and facilitator for many years working in leadership positions in companies like Optus, Vodafone and Ticketek. I also worked at the Nuclear Reactor, ANSTO for 8 years in a Human Resources capacity. I have my Certificate IV in Workplace Training and Assessment, Diploma of Training Design and Development, Diploma of Vocational Education and Training, Diploma of Leadership, Advanced Diploma of Leadership, Certificate IV in Work Health Safety and Diploma of Work Health Safety. In 2018 I undertook the biggest personal growth journey of my life and I completed 200 hour Yoga Teacher training. Yoga is not just about the poses it also strips back our layers exposing our limiting beliefs and allows us to move forward. I achieved things that I never imagined possible. I have been with my husband for 26 years and we are the proud parents of 2 beautiful boys. I live and work in the Sutherland Shire. My passion in life is helping people to lead their ultimate lives, and I would love to help you in yours. My purpose, the thing that gets me out of bed every morning, is that no one should have to live with anxiety and/or depression.
