Hypnosis is both a state of mind and a process - a process of inducing a trance state. We all go in and out of trance many times in a day without realising it. Have you ever driven somewhere arriving at your destination without having remembered the trip? Or been watching TV and "disappeared" somewhere in your mind without even closing your eyes? The subconscious mind has taken over, it is that part of our minds that runs the show, so to speak. The part of our minds that makes up 90% of our capacity and holds all our memories, everything we've ever experienced, seen, heard, touched, tasted and so on.

Hypnotherapy utilises this trance state to access the subconscious mind where all our "programs" are stored. Beliefs, memories, habits and so on. In a typical hypnotherapy session the hypnotherapist will guide the client into trance using various induction methods, and while the client is in hypnosis help them to create new empowering beliefs and habits, new "programs".

The Virtual Gastric Band Program

The Virtual Gastric Band Program developed by Sheila Granger from the UK, is the only gastric band program that has undertaken clinical trials , with an impressive 95% success rate in these trials. It is a is a 4 session weight reduction program which helps clients reduce their weight easily and effortlessly, run over 4 weeks. The average weight reduction in the first week is usually 3 kgs or so, thereafter approximately 1 kg a week.

Why 4 weeks? Creating new habits takes around 28 days to really become second nature and the 4 sessions cover eating habits; cravings; recognising true hunger; being able to listen to the signals the body gives us with regards to feeling satisfied; water intake; exercise habits; confidence and body image.

It is definitely NOT a diet, clients can eat smaller portions of anything they like resulting in steady, progressive weight reduction - without dieting.

No invasive surgery, no risk, just easy weight reduction. Contact us today to find out more about the Virtual Gastric Band program. At the moment sessions are available with Leanne, our Hypnotherapist on a 1:1 basis, with group sessions coming soon. Leanne is a Clinical Hypnotherapist, Mind Detox Coach, Psych-K facilitator and NLP Practitioner.

Strategic Intervention (SI)

SI is a style of Life Coaching developed by Tony Robbins, Cloe Madanes, Mark Peysha and Magali Peysha using the most practical and effective forms of strategic action and communication creating personal transformation from disciplines such as: Ericksonian Therapy; Strategic Family Therapy; Human Needs Psychology; Neurolinguistics and many others. The development of Strategic Intervention Coaching has also been powerfully influenced by the insights and works of Victor Frankl and Milton Erickson. What sets SI apart from other styles is the belief that certain holistic solutions “snap into place” when more people’s needs are met, expressed, and elevated. These solutions actually deliver more benefit for less effort.

One definition of a quantum leap is: A radical change in method, information or knowledge. We like to think of it as a radical recognition of who we really are and a positive shift in our awareness. In a nutshell, our experiential Personal Transformation Courses held throughout New Zealand will assist you to take that quantum leap and create a life of opportunities and purpose. These workshops have also been decribed as a Paradigm Shift which is defined as: "A complete change in thinking or belief systems that allows the creation of a new condition previously thought impossible or unacceptable".

At present we are holding these self awareness programmes in Auckland. However we are happy to travel to your area (a set minimum number of participants will apply). For organising a workshop in your area we will give you a free place!

Personal Development, Personal Transformation or Self Awareness programmes are, as the names suggest, workshops and programmes that will help individuals to realise their self worth,understand why they have certain beliefs and why they react to events the way they do, with the option of changing these unhelpful beliefs enabling us to be at peace with our past, be more successful and have more meaningful, loving relationships. Examining these areas in our lives will help us to lead more fulfilling, purposeful and pro-active lives. With increased self esteem and the confidence to use these newfound tools on a daily basis we become an inspiration and example to others.

We are based in Auckland and currently offer a trilogy of experiential workshops of self awareness and awakening, equipping you to express who you really are in all areas of your life. When you express who you really are, you fulfill your purpose and achieve your dreams and goals.

By re-aligning our way of being in the world we are able to break-through our limiting belief systems, creating a life filled with awareness, joy and clarity. Creating a shift in our perspectives opens doors of opportunity and enables us to live profoundly and with integrity.


In the first two self awareness workshops you will explore and discover ways to make you more effective as an individual in all areas of your life, including those that are already great. There are many methods of achieving this via processes/games, interactive lectures, sharing and movement. Using Strategic Intervention Coaching, as taught by Tony Robbins and Cloe Madanes, the Coach is able to help participants (during a one-on-one sharing session) to break through limiting beliefs and create new possibilities. The games are also designed to create breakthroughs and it is all integrated with the data presented.

The third workshop is a 6 day retreat focusing on creating a Vision for your life. Each workshop is self contained and although progression to the advanced courses is recommended, it is not essential.

For most people, change is initiated when our circumstances are so bad and when we're so uncomfortable that we can no longer continue as things have been. Why wait for the financial crisis, or ill health, or loss of some kind? Our workshops are designed to push buttons, at times making us uncomfortable so that we can explore, in a safe environment, a new way to "be" in relation to what life throws at us. Neuroscience tells us that our brains become hardwired to produce certain familiar behaviours and reactions which makes it very difficult (even if we really desire to change) to actually make these changes stick. We just cannot seem to "think outside the box"! Our workshops assist you, through the experiential games we play, to think outside the box, push you past your comfort zone and thereby create new positive behaviours, assisting you to create, from within, an inspiring, uplifted life filled with purpose and meaning.

Unlike motivational workshops which “fire” you up temporarily, experiential workshops have a lasting impact on your life. Much like the experience of falling in love—which would you prefer, reading about it or experiencing it? Experiences teach the body - through the emotions - what the mind has learned as a concept and have a lasting impact.

Some may say they will eventually discover their true selves one day anyway, the question is, how long will it take? These experiential personal development workshops will tremendously accelerate your personal transformation.

The workshops create a safe space which allows participants to:

  • Examine areas of their lives that can be improved or enhanced.
  • Share with fellow participants, which in itself is a fantastic learning tool.
  • Fully express their feelings, without judgement, whether these be negative or positive.
  • Heal relationships.
  • Participate fully in thoughtfully designed processes and activities resulting in a huge shift in personal awareness.
  • Discover that we are actually human beings rather than human doings or human havings.
  • Change their relationship with life's experiences
