I have been there (and pretty much everywhere) when it comes to having problems. And tried pretty much everything to help myself change, until I found what works. I now consider myself like a jailhouse lawyer, I’ve had to work so hard on my own case, I can now help you with yours…


Helping to take the struggle out of doing what you already know you need to do, in order to be the person you were meant to be. The person you know you could be, if you just stopped getting in your own way…

I have spent the last 15 years learning from the best therapists, coaches and experts in the world. After working with thousands of clients, I found the easiest, most effective ways to reprogram the subconscious mind to work for you, instead of against you.

I'm the author of the Amazon bestseller The Smoking Cure: How to Quit Smoking Without Feeling Like Sh*t and has a private practice in Auckland, New Zealand, give advice on my podcast WTF - Stories and Advice as well as teaching hypnotherapy at the The Integrative Hypnotherapy Institute, facilitating workshops and corporate training.

I believe the answer to making easy, lasting change is in your subconscious mind. Change can be as simple as laying back, closing your eyes and allowing the relaxing power of hypnosis to update the unhelpful programs in your subconscious mind.


Hypnosis helps you put your subconscious on autopilot to figure out the rest. Helping to take the struggle out of doing what you already know you need to do, in order to be the person you were meant to be. The person you know you could be, if you just stopped getting in your own way…

It’s like updating the old software programs that have been causing you issues and holding you back from being who you want to be. All you have to do is decide how you would like to be, and we can help you achieve it.
