Recent divorce

Before I saw Anna, I was very lost and confused after my recent divorce. Since I’ve been seeing her, my life has completely changed, not quite the way I wanted, but it has certainly been shaken up. I am clearer about things now, I still have a long way to go, but I’m not confused and I’m treating myself better.

Improved my quality and outlook on life

Anna has certainly helped me gain a new perspective of my anxiety, assisting me to recognise my small triggers and negative habits. I feel the sessions have improved my quality of and outlook on life.

Emotionally healing

Before I saw Anna, I was suffering from a lot of workplace stress and anger issues. I found each session surprising. I learnt a lot about the cause of my issues that I did not expect to learn through hypnotherapy. Anna’s guidance has been invaluable in my treatment. I now no longer have that feeling of dread come over me Sunday afternoons and feel a lot calmer at work, even during challenging situations and just generally feel a lot better with myself. I even find myself accepting complements (which I never could before). This experience has been emotionally healing for me.

A weight lifted

My first session felt like a weight had been lifted off my shoulders, just getting everything out. I will continue to see how I grow from this experience.

Chronic Pain

Following treatment from Anna, I feel the best I have felt in 4 years after suffering from chronic pain for the last 4 years. I know I must continue on my own now and Anna has given me skills to do this. I have achieved all of my goals, which as to improve my energy levels and quality of life, and can only improve from here, now that I have learnt what I need to do. My friends, family and colleagues have all noticed the difference in my life. Thank you Anna.

I was very surprised

I found Anna very easy to speak with. I was very surprised that I was still aware of everything around me and what she was saying and that I remembered everything that happened after.

It opened my mind

My experience was very informative, it opened my mind to things that now make much more sense to me. I feel I’m getting to know who I really am as my own person.

Problem with public speaking

Anna, was fantastic!

Before I went to see Anna I had a problem with public speaking; I was a confident person naturally but did fake confidence in front of crowd and starting to become increasingly anxious about presenting, to the point where I could almost pass out. During hypnotherapy we uncovered significant stress and anxiety issues caused by my job and earlier events in my life, that although managing well, were part of my problem(s). I had been bottling this all up and although uncomfortable bringing these issues to the surface, was actually able to deal with them and further analyse and overcome root cause systemic problems.

Since completing my course with Anna I feel very happy within myself and a lot more confident. There has been some interesting personal and professional opportunities come my way and I have been successful in MC'ing a Wedding and conducting a presentation in front of 100 staff at work with only minor nerves. This is empowering and I am putting myself out there now for further opportunities to present. 

Anna is a special person and honestly believe she can help you too.

Addressing underlying issues

I really liked the approach in addressing underlying issues which were affecting me and inhibiting me from reaching my goals. Great overall experience, caring and effective.


Update 1 month later:

Hi Anna

It's great to hear from you, I've been going well,  I've noticed some real changes. I've got a different attitude of confidence and determination and I think self-belief.

I'm also doing a bit more exercise which I think comes from more self-commitment. With the eating I fluctuate a bit but the thing I have noticed is that I know I'm choosing to eat, so it's more of a decision, which I think is good, it's not so mindless as before so I know I have more control over it. I have lost a few kilos though.

I think I'm happier than before I came to see you.

I hope all is well with you, thank you again for your help and fabulous work - it's very inspiring.

It exceeded my expectations

It exceeded my expectations, I was nervous and slightly unsure, however, Anna has been able to guide me with her warmth and understanding and profound skill/technique to help me through. Overall it’s become an enjoyable experience and one I’m grateful to have had.


Update 1 month later:

Hi Anna,

That time has flown by since our last session. At this current time what has changed the most is my ability to communicate and express myself, so it's been a subtle change that can't been seen so much but felt. 

The way I would describe it is I no longer go out of my way to people please ALL of the time. I have created personal boundaries and trust myself in knowing when these boundaries are being compromised and able to express it to another.

To sum it up though I'm feeling in flow and content with life.

I'm so thankful that we crossed paths and for your service.

With grace and gratitude,

Meagan x

Fear of needles

Overall I thoroughly enjoyed each session I had. I felt I developed as a person and viewed my life long issue with needles in a more positive way. Now that I am studying to become a nurse, it is about time I overcome this phobia once and for all. I feel that I have been able to do that. This was also my first time having hypnotherapy done and was very enjoyable.


Update 1 week later:

Hi Anna,

Just letting you know I gave 3 injections last night on my shift at the hospital!

I'm so happy and proud! Thank you for all your help.


Update 1 month later:

Hi Anna,

I’m going great, been giving heaps of needles which is great and I don’t really get nervous anymore!

Very understanding, intelligent and thoughtful

Anna was very understanding, she really took the time to listen to me. I have been to Doctors, Counsellors and Psychologists and have never felt heard or understood. They all assumed to know what was wrong with me. Anna was different. She is intelligent and thoughtful and listened to understand. And she has helped me to understand myself a lot better as well.

Dominick Spencer Stress Relief Program August 28, 2017

Fear of public speaking

I came to work on my fear of public speaking because I want to progress in my career. I appreciated the psychology behind the hypnosis, i.e., the discussions prior to going under, to gather information but also to have realisations about topics pre and post hypnosis. The end of the session “cues” were great for helping to be mindful of staying on track. It was more than hypnotherapy and it uncovered other areas for me to work on. I am already handling stuff better, and have noticed an improvement on how I feel about being called up to talk in front of a crowd at work.


Update one month later:

Hello Anna,

I am fantastic and thank you for asking.

The MC role went amazingly well and many people said that I made the reception! The brother in law is a semi famous celebrity/comedian and he called me an "Assassin", laughs. Was really proud that I delivered and helped to make everyone (especially my cousin and her husband) have a great night.

In the first week back from leave I had to do a presentation in front of 100 staff and that also went well.

Whilst I still get some nerves I can manage them and I owe it all to you.

I feel better within myself day to day as well and 'genuinely' much happier.

Freed me from strong fear and anxiety

There is nothing I didn’t like about the whole experience. I found it to be one of the best decisions I ever made. It has changed my life immensely. It has freed me from strong fear and anxiety and I learnt an enormous amount about myself. I would highly recommend it to anyone. Could not be happier. Thank you so much Anna. I have now found confidence I never knew I had.

Shy Bladder

I have suffered from Shy Bladder since childhood. I have enjoyed my experience. Anna has taught me not to worry about what could happen (and probably doesn’t) and what other people think. I wanted to feel more relaxed about going to the toilet in public because I am about to go on a trip of a lifetime to England. I feel more relaxed about my trip now because I have been able to go in public with no problem.


Update 2 months later:

Hello Anna,

Well I am just back from my trip and I had a lovely time. I also went to the toilet on the plane. Had no trouble at the theatre or lining up at cafe's etc. Thank you very much for helping me during my sessions with  you.

Carolyn Nelson Stress Relief Program July 19, 2017

Helped me with issues from my past

The experience was very good. I felt I was in a safe and secure environment and it was also very relaxing. Anna is fantastic and she really helped me with issues from my past. I had been having nightmares regarding someone in my past and after one visit these nightmares stopped. Anna has also helped me with clamping my jaw through stress. This has been greatly relieved.


Update 2 ½ months later:

Dear Anna,

I am going very well.  No more nightmares.

Kind regards,

Emotional trauma put to bed

Thanks to my sessions, I’ve learned a lot about myself and discovered how hypnosis can help you deal with your worries, fears, and self-doubt. I feel great and so much more positive. My emotional trauma I suffered with for so many years has been put to bed. I’ve learned to love myself more. I would highly recommend Anna to anyone having doubts with themselves.

Helen Stress Relief Program June 15, 2017

Confidence to leap forward

The sessions have given me the space to be open and self-reflect, to listen to my subconscious mind, and not ignore it and do something about it.

I now have the confidence to leap forward and present in front of an audience.

It was a different experience for me, as I am already very self-aware of myself and others, yet I was able to connect to a much deeper part of myself to reveal what I needed to take my career to the next level.

* name withheld Stress Relief Program June 1, 2017

Helped me see things clearer

A great experience as it has helped me see things clearer and prioritise my many issues I currently have. I experienced a sense of calmness with the brain starting to slow down after week 2 which makes everything easier to access.


Update one year later:

Hi Anna 

Thanks for the great chat

As I mentioned I find myself still using some of the positive thinking processes you taught me during our sessions early last year. 

Our sessions became a game changer as you brought me out of a very dull negative mind set. 

I had a huge amount of current issues and lingering baggage at the time and it all just seemed too much. 

However half way through your sessions I started to feel like things were starting to fall into categories of priority. This helped me break the massive issues into bite size chunks and it gave me a more confident and positive approach to address the issues. 

I now find that finally things have worked out and 2017 is certainly looking much better than a horror 2016. 

A more steady job and by chance ran into a person that is fantastic. 

We are now building a great relationship and I have a more positive outlook on life. 

Your sessions will certainly never be forgotten. Thank you very much

Feeling normal again

Prior to seeking help with hypnotherapy, I was a little sceptical about how hypnosis could help with my constant worries about my health and what the future could hold. I was extremely surprised how well I was coping after only one session. I also noticed that my anxiety wasn’t affecting me as it had prior to hypnosis. The more sessions I did the better I felt and was gradually getting back to feeling normal again. My family also noticed changes, I didn’t have the mood swings that I previously had.

Self-development and personal growth

Anna offered me a very comforting experience in my self-development. Her caring nature, her empathy, her guiding approach, plus her skills and knowledge has supported my personal growth; for which I am very grateful. She was exactly what I needed.

Help for my sugar addiction

Overall it was very enjoyable. I came with an open mind, hoping to get help for my sugar addiction. I experienced personal growth through a very painful process but it was cleansing. It stripped away the pain I was carrying and allowed me to move on with my life without scars. Anna was the most caring, professional, giving everything possible to help me. She’s lovely and special. I highly recommend her.

Kasia Darby Stress Relief Program January 11, 2017

My experience was excellent

Overall, my experience was excellent. I learned new methods to help me cope with my anxiety and exercises to help me relax and adopt a positive mindset.

A wonderful support

Anna is a warm and caring person who has listened to all that I have shared and has been a wonderful support through a very difficult time. Her guidance and genuine concern has been very much appreciated.

Karen Robinson Stress Relief Program January 4, 2017

My fear of heights

It was a fantastic experience. Initially, Anna worked on my fear of heights, an amazing experience. Then she uncovered some other aspects that gave me great benefit. She’s amazing the way she gets me to explore events and connections and now I have great visual images to work with on my issues. It’s an important process to heal my inner self. I highly recommend Anna for her professionalism and kind manner.


Update 5 months later:

Anna guided me through my issue with heights, providing me with tools to control my negative reactions, and allowing me to enjoy the views from up high, as my wife and others are doing. Now I've gone up Tokyo tower in Japan, enjoying the panoramas, happy and smiling. I'm looking forward to seeing more views in our travels. Anna changes lives forever, try her approach and you will be a new person.

Kim Darby Stress Relief Program January 3, 2017

Helped me to put me first

It has helped enormously with my anxiety and stress. I now have better coping strategies and can deal better with everyday stresses. Most of all, it has helped me to “put me first”

Deb Kinder Stress Relief Program October 24, 2016

I can now sleep better

It is the most awesome feeling being hypnotised. Anna is the best. I can now sleep better and I have more motivation. I would highly recommend her.

John Schofield Stress Relief Program October 14, 2016

Brought to light what I NEEDED to address

It’s definitely helped my life. Not only have the sessions assisted with what I wanted to address, but brought to light what I NEEDED to address. The self-hypnosis techniques I have been taught will be the most valuable thing I take away.

Tayla Bryant Stress Relief Program September 20, 2016

Time well spent

Life is so hectic, taking time to look after your own concerns and troubles is time well spent!

Self-discovery and healing

An amazing way of self-discovery and healing. These sessions have given me so much strength and willpower that I am able to push all these negative thoughts out of my head, I have hope and determination to never give up no matter how hard it gets. These sessions always make me feel so empowered and positive about life, that I believe I can do anything I put my mind to.

Maddison Bryant Stress Relief Program August 30, 2016

Outlook on work and life more positive

I got faster results out of Anna’s program than I had expected. I noticed improvement in myself the following day, my stress’s reduced, my outlook on work and life became more positive and continued to improve throughout the program. Anna is very easy to talk too and very approachable and I got the results I was looking for. I feel 10 times better than the day I first walked in.

Tim Bennie Stress Relief Program August 11, 2016

I now feel in less pain and less stress

I was a bit sceptical of hypnotherapy to begin with but thought I’d give it a go and now I’m so glad I did! Thanks to Anna’s great work I now feel in less pain, less stress, more organised and motivated and feel more confident in myself and my ability to deal with uncomfortable situations and hurt from the past! Highly recommend Anna to anyone who feels like they are stuck in a rut.

Sarah Halnon Stress Relief Program July 18, 2016

Thought provoking clarity

Thought provoking clarity into a wide range of personal issues, Anna is a true professional in helping you explore the inner you.


Update one year later:

My sessions with Anna were life altering. I saw her for one issue and then worked through a series of past and present experiences over the course of my time with her. Afterwards I felt greater clarity in knowing how I feel, what I want, and importantly I was able to dismiss feelings from the past which no longer served me in a positive way. I can't recommend Anna highly enough. If you allow, she will change your life!

Monica Balon Stress Relief Program June 16, 2016

Uncover a lot of deep issues

I was able to uncover a lot of deep issues. Anna helped me make sense of why I was feeling the way I was. She is very caring and encouraging.

Life changing!

Kerem Baskaya Stress Relief Program May 18, 2016

Helped me with my problem gambling

My experience was great! Across the six sessions I had, Anna certainly helped me with my problem gambling and I found that I was making progress each session. Anna really does care about her patients. I haven’t even thought about going back to the TAB! Hypnotherapy really works!

Josh Gregory Stress Relief Program April 27, 2016

Feel empowered

Anna, what I like about our sessions together is you create an avenue for me to relax, think clearly, discuss freely and work towards calming the craziness of my thoughts into that of order logic and reason. It’s nice to feel empowered to gain my lost thoughts or muddled behaviour and to work towards a space of clarity.

You have a natural way to engage and I appreciate your systematic way of working through life matters that require some order and understanding.

We all need to know someone we can turn to in times of need; I am pleased to have been introduced to you.

Getting to the core of issues

Understanding and getting to the core of issues is made easy the way Anna breaks everything down. The time spent in the sessions is always relaxed and comforting.

Happier and more confident

Since starting hypnotherapy, I have been feeling a lot more relaxed about everything. Most everyday stresses now feel easy to deal with. I feel happier and more confident than I have in a long time and I am very thankful for that. I would recommend this Stress Relief program to anyone!

Caitlin Meharry Stress Relief Program December 11, 2015

More confidence and self-worth

Dear Anna, what I really liked about the hypnosis stress relief program was how I was able to express my thoughts and feelings in a safe environment. I found your responses helpful and understanding. Also, I found through the hypnosis I was able to discover past experiences and feelings that I had bottled up and formed negative thoughts about myself as a result. I feel so much more confident and self-worth from my sessions and know if I feel down or negative in the future, I can always come and see you.

Given me more confidence

Positive attitude

Dear Anna, I want to tell you how much I appreciate your help! Things have changed mentally and my attitude towards the day ahead is more positive. I want life to be fantastic and for me to enjoy every day and events to the fullest and I’m going to do it! Life is short and precious and I’m going to do as much as I can and be the happiest I can be!

* name withheld Stress Relief Program August 14, 2015

I feel normal again

Dear Anna, there were many things I liked about the hypnosis stress relief program but the main thing is the fact that it helped me feel ‘normal’ again and showed me that on a day to day basis, feeling anxious and stressed is not okay. I have enjoyed feeling in better control of my feelings instead of them being in control of me. I have learned invaluable techniques which will help me face challenges ahead. I can’t thank you enough. Anna, you are amazing!!

Marie Parker Stress Relief Program August 12, 2015

Work through emotional issues

Dear Anna, the hypnosis stress relief program helped me work through some emotional issues and helped to calm me down by making me realise what is important in life and what’s not. You are a great listener and that helped a lot too.
