In late 1996 I was diagnosed with the auto immune disease Lupus. My health was in a poor state as I struggled having enough energy to cope with a toddler and daily life. Looking for a modality that would assist me further than the orthodox methods I had already engaged in I discovered Reiki. In 1997 I met Reiki Master Robin Rodgers whose own remarkable Reiki story inspired me to train immediately as a practitioner. I was totally unprepared for the improvements in my health.
These improvements steadily continued as I further trained in other methods of complementary healing. Later in 1997 I married and 4 years after I discovered I was pregnant. Due to my lupus and medical history, the doctors were on red alert which increased my stress levels and heightened my fears around birthing.
Regardless I continually gave myself and my baby Reiki. I believe this explained the good health of my baby while carrying her. I astounded specialists when I carried to term a perfectly healthy baby girl. In 2009 I felt a strong urge to train as a Clinical Hypnotherapist. I really cannot say why but I felt a calling and so I trained with Hypnosis New Zealand. In 2009 I received my Diploma and later in 2013 I extended my knowledge, completing my Advanced Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy with the same training institute.
