About Clare

Clare has lived and worked in Ballarat all of her life and currently works as a Certified Hypnotherapist and Nature Based Therapist in a busy private practice. She is passionate about sharing the wonderful world of Hypnotherapy with her community.

Clare has over 30 years of experience in the Health Care Industry including Aged Care,and working in Acute and Palliative Care units in a large regional hospital.

Her vast experience as a Pastoral Practitioner involved working individually with clients and supporting them through some of the most challenging times in their lives.

Clare has assisted people to cope through surgical care, oncology and cancer care, pain management, ageing, diagnosis and prognosis support, cardiac care, rehabilitation and palliative care. She has helped patients and families navigate through end of life care and is experienced in giving dying and grief/bereavement support.

Clare says, "My past experience gives me a deep understanding of habits or beliefs that can get in the way. I have also observed the incredible capacity of the human mind to move from trauma to triumph. This has inspired me to assist people beyond the hospital environment by utilising a holistic approach toward healing the mind, body and spirit."

She continues, "Hence I discovered the incredible world of hypnosis to tap into the amazing power of the mind; where we can develop personal resources to create new patterns of behaviour and experience changes that will enrich our lives. It is a safe and natural way for us to access the wisdom and abilities of the inner mind to find solutions to obstacles in life and/or make positive changes in our lives."

Clare explains, "Hypnosis is just a very relaxed and focused state of mind, like a deep meditative state. It’s a process where the conscious mind is asked to step aside temporarily to allow you to connect with the subconscious mind. It’s relaxing and enjoyable! Throughout my practice as a Hypnotherapist I have witnessed incredible positive changes in people’s lives and this is something I would like to share with you and provide an opportunity for you to experience and notice the difference."

By participating in this course, you will experience Clare's compassionate and holistic approach and she will guide you to connect inwardly with your self-awareness to utilise your own wisdom and inner strength.

Clare says, "Join with me in these sessions to experience hypnotherapy in a safe and nurturing space.".
