I am a trained clinical hypnotherapist and EFT therapist in Sydney.
Have you ever imagined what hypnotherapists and EFT therapists actually do and how they could help you in your life? Well, a day in the life of a hypnotist is not what most people imagine.
And funnily enough, no, as a hypnotherapist I don’t swing a watch or click my fingers to put someone to sleep or make them do weird things.
People I work with are very much like you and me. People who function well and are successful in life. But, they need help with some aspects of everyday life; stress at work; public speaking; weight issues or hypnosis to stop smoking or gambling.
People seeking hypnotists or EFT therapists are intelligent and far from gullible.
Should you visit a hypnotherapist?
You might not realise it, but you already use hypnosis in your daily life. Hypnosis is a natural phenomena, and you come in and out of hypnosis daily without knowing that it is happening.
A perfect example of you acting as your own hypnotist is when you are driving a car. You arrive at your familiar destination and you don’t recall most of the trip. It is like an auto-pilot took over and steering became automatic. This is because an inbuilt GPS in your brain was directing the way, automatically turning corners at the right time. All this was happening while you were talking, listening to the radio or absorbed in your thoughts.
The reality about visiting a hypnotist is this – in hypnosis you tap into the immense intelligence within your subconscious mind. Yes! There is more to you than you realise or acknowledge consciously.

Should you visit an EFT therapist?
An EFT therapist, uses a tapping technique, based on ancient Chinese acupuncture (we don’t use needles) to help you release your pent-up emotions. A hypnotist can help you to make changes in your life, and combined with EFT tapping therapy can help you to remove emotional blockages or disturbances in your body, caused by negative emotions.
How can a hypnotist or clinical hypnotherapist help in your life?
My clients tell me that I’m an attentive listener and that I help them feel comfortable and relaxed; to have self-confidence during our hypnosis sessions. This is really important for successful treatments by both a hypnotist and an emotional therapist, and I am pleased to continually help my clients achieve their goals.
After all, I know first-hand that hypnosis works, as I used hypnosis to stop smoking many years ago. Here you can read my personal success story of using hypnosis to stop smoking.
Teaching my clients self-hypnosis is one of the most rewarding areas of my work, especially in the case of Hypnobirthing. As a hypnotherapist and a mother who has experienced natural childbirth, it is my great privilege to be able to help other women experience the joy of welcoming a baby into this world in a calm and peaceful way.
Hypnobirthing is a method of using hypnosis to eliminate fear and pain of the birthing experience and to empower women to give birth with calm and positive expectation. I teach the Marie Mongan method and I was certified as a practitioner at the very first course Marie held here in Australia in 2000.
Hypnotherapy techniques can also help you to release any lingering fears from previous childbirth experiences, helping you to move forward in future pregnancies.
Keeping busy as a hypnotherapist in Sydney CBD and Annandale, Inner West Sydney
My career as a clinical hypnotherapist started back in 1998. Over the years I have thrived and enjoyed setting up a private practice in Sydney CBD and Annandale in the Inner West of Sydney. I am very grateful to the many clients who by “word of mouth” spread the benefits of hypnosis; by happily telling their friends and family.
Keeping up with relevant up-to-date studies and treatments within the hypnosis field is also very important to me, and to this end I am active within the professional hypnotherapist community. I have received a Fellow Membership in recognition of my contribution to the Australian Hypnotherapists Association and I currently hold the position as the NSW State Secretary of the Australian Hypnotherapists Association.
The AHA is the oldest and most respected organisation for hypnotherapists in Australia and in 2009 celebrated 60 years of formation. The AHA is recognised by the government and the health industry for maintaining the highest standards for the profession.
As a hypnotherapist and EFT therapist, I have a genuine love of helping people, which has meant that, over the years, I have volunteered at many organisations that provide care services for the elderly. I have worked with Meals on Wheels and Neighbour Aid, where elderly people are visited in their homes or nursing homes.
My particular interest in volunteering in the aged care industry is due to a close and loving relationship with my grandmother and indeed fond memories of all my grandparents.
I have always been a great believer in creating just the right balance in life by enjoying family, work commitments and allowing time for hobbies and creativity. I especially love the relaxing hobby of working with bonsai plants. The art of bonsai is about meditation, patience, nurturing and creativity, which I find both enjoyable and fulfilling, and feeds back into my life as a hypnotherapist and emotional therapist.
I look forward to meeting you and working with you.
