Paediatric Hypnosis

Being a busy mum and parent, working and helping children is one of my passions in life - the ability to help a young growing human being in whichever way I can with my extensive professional and personal experience and guidance makes my life worthwhile.

As part of the research team for BWRT Institute and BBRS (British Brain Research society) I developed/wrote a neuroscience based Children’s Protocol for health professionals in 2015. Since then it has helped and continues to help hundreds of children and young adolescents worldwide. For more information on BWRT please follow the link:

I am also a lifelong member of The International Society of Paediatric Hypnotherapists (TISPH) which aims to reduce the barriers to effective therapy for children and young people by connecting parents with suitably qualified and experienced hypnotherapists.

All TISPH members are required to undertake a diploma course and are quality checked, so you can choose a paediatric hypnotherapist with confidence.

I hold an International Diploma in Paediatric Hypnotherapy TISPH (UK) and Blue Card working with children (Qld).

According to 2014 report from up to 17% of young children and adolescents (4-17) experience mental health problems, with most of the problems being attributed to anxiety disorders.

I believe multiple psychosomatic conditions may be approached in the drug free manner coupled with supportive Client Centred approach and therefore can only advantage, support clients in their best interests. In my opinion, focusing on quality of the relationship with client is paramount as treatment itself.
