Trish always remembered being fascinated by babies and how they came into the world and so was really excited on first becoming pregnant in 1999 and then again in 2001.  Unfortunately, both of these births were not what she had envisaged. During her third pregnancy she discovered HypnoBirthing® and the benefits of having a Doula by her side.  This time she laboured and birthed easily and calmly and this made her realise that birth can be the way she had always thought it was meant to be. HypnoBirthing® (‘hypno’ implies ‘deep relaxation’) is a comprehensive childbirth education program, providing the missing link that allows women to use their natural instincts to bring about a safer, easier birthing. It is as new as tomorrow and as old as ancient times and is presented in a series of five weekly, 2 1/2 hour classes.

This experience led her to change the direction of her life and in 2006 she became a Certified HypnoBirthing® Practitioner, and is a Gold Seal Practitioner in good standing with the HypnoBirthing Institute.  Since then Trish has enjoyed working with families as they bring their children into the world.  The use of hypnosis during the HypnoBirthing® classes also intrigued Trish and she became fascinated with the untapped potential of the subconscious mind.   It was this fascination with the subconscious mind that lead Trish to take up further study to become a Clinical Hypnotherapist.  Having left school early Trish was convinced that academia was not her strong suit.  She knew that to achieve a diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy she would have to overcome this limited belief.  Thankfully, with her acquired knowledge of how the subconscious mind stores limited beliefs and how accessing this part of the mind can change limiting and un serving self beliefs.  Through her own hypnotherapy, Trish was able to overcome this challenge and succeed in achieving her goal.  Her constant desire to learn means she enjoys spending time researching, studying and reading, all with the intent of expanding her working knowledge of the power of the mind.

Trish has always provided a good sounding board, listening with a compassionate ear and wanting to help people solve their life’s challenges. Her genuine desire to connect with people needing support, underpins her skill set and she is often told that her calming manner and comforting voice offer reassurance to the wonderful people she has worked with over the years.

Trish says…“I look forward to being by your side as your Hypnotherapist should you need support with life’s challenges…or as your HypnoBirthing® Practitioner for when you are pregnant and choose a birth free of fear…or as your Doula for when you decide that you need hands on emotional support during birth…or maybe all three!  Thank you.”
