Resource Therapy

Resource Therapy is receiving much attention around the world as a superior trauma informed, strength based, parts psychotherapy, capable of attending to and relieving PTSD, including complex presentations. The power of RT lies in its ability to treat long standing client issues immediately and effectively within the therapy hour, bringing about significant improvement and often complete and lasting relief from the presenting issue.
Resource Therapy was developed by Professor Gordon Emmerson as a clinical evolution of his knowledge of Ego State Therapy, cognitive psychology, hypnosis and client experience.

Resource Therapy is based on the understanding that the personality is composed of parts.  The part that presents an issue in therapy is seldom the part that needs change. The presenting part is usually reporting, or complaining, about another part of themselves. ie., the part that get's anxious, or the part that cannot stop eating sugary food. The Resource Therapist is able to skilfully bring the part of the personality that needs change into the therapeutic process; to speak with it compassionately and respectfully so that it can be worked with directly.  Resource Therapy facilitates a quicker, deeper, and longer lasting change.

Clinical Hypnotherapy

Clinical hypnotherapy combines hypnosis with psychotherapy and counselling techniques to provide their clients with relief. It involves getting you into a relaxed state where the therapist can communicate with the subconscious part of your mind in order to make suggestions and address issues that offer deep and long lasting change.

In Australia clinical hypnotherapy is represented through the peak body, Hypnotherapy Council of Australia, which recommends minimum standards of practice, codes of conduct and ethical practices.

NLP Life Coaching

Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) is a psychological approach that involves analysing strategies and applying them to reach a personal goal. It relates thoughts, language, and patterns of behaviour learned through experience to specific outcomes. 

Neuro, relates to the physical, mental and emotional components of our neurology.

Linguistics relates to the language that we use, how we communicate with ourselves and others.

Programming relates to the way our past experiences, thoughts and emotions affect all areas of our lives.

NLP provides a framework for coaching, enabling a greater understanding of who you are and how you can best move towards your desired outcome

Energy Healing Therapies


Reiki is a gentle form of energy healing that promotes relaxation and reduces stress. It can improve and balance energy flow around the body, relieve the symptoms of pain and support healing. Reiki practitioners deliver energy to the body, through their hands, this can be performed using hands on or hands off as preferred.

I practice a form of Reiki developed by Master Mikao Usui in 1922. However, people have practiced Reiki for about 2,500 years.

Pranic Healing

Pranic Healing is a form of ‘hands off’ energy healing modality developed by Master Choa Kok Sui over a 30 year period.  Pranic Healing is based on the fundamental principle that the body has the innate ability to heal itself, it draws in life force energy, or prana to correct and clear energy blockages or imbalances allowing fresh and new energy to be channelled. Pranic does this by scanning the body and working directly with the affected parts in a hands off manner.

In summary, both PRANIC HEALING and REIKI are excellent healing modalities Reiki is and help alleviate pain and suffering. However, PRANIC HEALING gives you the tools to produce faster and more immediate results while “immunizing” you against contamination from the people you are healing.

Theta Healing

ThetaHealing® is a process of meditation that was developed by spiritual teacher and healer Vianna Stibal in 1995 to teach people to develop their natural intuition by changing the brain wave cycle to the more relaxed theta waves, for the intention of exploring how emotional energy is affecting a person's health.

ThetaHealing® identifies the causes of blockages to the natural functioning of a person, like belief systems, repressed emotions, fears, traumas and genetic defects. These blockages impact the flow of infinite spiritual energy by limiting it. The therapy allows the person to look for those blocks or obstacles, and connect to the highest source to release the subconscious core beliefs and blocks on all four levels – core, genetic, past life and soul.
