    my journey

    In my own words…

    At the ripe old age of 14 I began attending weekly workshops at a local meditation group. The youngest member of that group by about 25 years… I felt like I’d returned home from a long lonely voyage. I found myself reading any book I could get my hands on about meditation and holistic healing modalities.

    At 16 I came across a book about hypnotic regression therapy and became absorbed in the subject, even practicing on my best friend!

    When I turned 18 I travelled to Nepal to work with children. I learned Vipassana Meditation during a 10 day silent retreat. There I discovered and experienced first hand the incredible potential of the subconscious mind that lies within each of us.

    Returning home to Australia I was swept up in the reality of finding a job, buying a house and all the the “normal” things expected of us in life.

    During my thirties I took a long hard look at myself and my life…

    Somewhere along the way I’d gotten off track. I decided that I wanted to make a difference in the world in a way that felt meaningful to me. What I quickly realised is that I had lost connection with the only person who could help me… myself!

    When I began re-investing in myself, I sought out a variety of holistic healing modalities; and applied what I learned in my day to day life. I was amazed at the results as I released large amounts of past programming through conscious awareness.

    Continuing to develop more awareness and compassion, I began to thrive in life rather than merely survive.

    Today I as a Psychotherapist I specialise in enhanced Cognitive Behavioural Therapy eCBT, and use a host of transformational tools to assist others to return to a state of wellness, wellbeing and resilience within themselves.

    Beginning in our childhood and continuing right up until the present day, life presents us with a range of experiences. Some are very positive and affirming and others offer disappointments and setbacks.

    Our self-esteem can take a bit of a beating from some of life’s more challenging experiences. There is a vulnerable part of our psyche that can interpret certain events as evidence that we are somehow less deserving of love and happiness.

    Lowered self esteem or confidence might show up in our career, failed or difficult relationships, or even illness. If it persists for a period of time we can become prone to anxiety, depression, anger or even jealousy.

    Every individual perceives themselves as well as day-to-day experiences through the filter of our subconscious programs. These programs are created during our early childhood and also through challenging experiences that can occur at any time in our lives.

    The problem with many of these programs is that they were set up to protect us from pain. These programs can be mistaken activated even when we are not in immediate danger. When this happens, the program will ‘hijack our ability to  choose’ how we would ‘prefer’ to think, feel and respond in certain situations.

    I facilitate a proven process for releasing past programming that no longer serves you, so that you can take back control and feel better faster.

    Therapy involves a combination of Enhanced Cognitive Behavioural Therapy eCBT and Clinical Hypno-psychotherapy. eCBT and hypnotherapy rebuilds and increases confidence and self worth. Clients are guided to overcome current challenges by accessing un-tapped resources within themselves.

    I look forward to connecting with you.

    Here’s what I know to be true… it all begins with YOU.

    When you decide to work in partnership with your whole being; mind, body and soul… Then, and only then, are you ready to allow your TRUE SELF to radiate from within.
