Avril                                                      CarpenterAvril Carpenter
"I am passionate about weight management Hypnotherapy.  My mission is to educate and inspire women to have confidence and control around food, be the shape and size they want to be for life – without calorie-counting or sweating their you-know-what’s off at the gym.  I help busy women ignite their thinner sparkle, make peace with food and live the life they hunger for."

Weight Management
NZ is ranked as the third heaviest country in the world.  "I want to lose weight, can you help?" is becoming a very common question for hypnotherapists.  Having specialised in weight management Hypnosis since 2012 and worked with hundreds of clients, Avril's noticed what works, and what doesn't. She shares her top seven weight management tips to help clients become their happy weight.
Ian BlaineIan Blaine
Ian Blaine is one of our original and longest serving HNZ Registered Clinical Hypnotherapists. He practices in several locations around Auckland - and is one of the country's most noted exponents of all things Hypnosis. Ian has a wealth of information and experience to draw from and is totally generous in sharing his Hypnosis & Hypnotherapy knowledge with his peers.

Anxiety & Phobias
Ian is extremely experienced in dealing with clients suffering from anxiety and phobias will be sharing some very useful information, in 4 specific areas:
  • Understanding different types of anxieties and phobias.
  • The Psychology of what's happening in the mind.
  • The Physiology of what's happening in the body.
  • Techniques to help free clients of their limitations and take control back.
Linda WoodgateLinda Woodgate
As an experienced Life Coach, Laughter Yoga Leader, Workshop Facilitator, Hypnotherapy Practitioner, Spiritual Teacher, Indian Head Massage practitioner and teacher, and several other modalities, Linda has observed the level of stress prevalent in clients and audiences. By meshing components of several modalities she has responded to this with programmes specifically aimed at reducing stress and ‘moving moods’ in very easy, fast and fun ways.  “Live, Laugh and Love your Moments”

Mind/Body Connection
To create participation with practical involvement and theory of the mind body connection. This interactive session, with a light hearted card game of body parts, will use a series of controversial quotes or statements backed up with theory, science and hearsay.

  • To discover where belief systems fit or don't fit ‘today'.
  • How belief systems define working practises.
  • To expand and be open to new ways of using their skills.
  • To understand how all body parts are effected by the mind.
  • To not limit the power of thought and energy with the invisible world.
  • To take these findings and bring a fresh approach to life.
  • To continue to be experiential in approach to client requirements.

Sheryl MurraySheryl Murray
Sheryl Murray is a Registered Clinical Hypnotherapist and Counsellor who has been combining her passion for counselling with the wonderful technique of hypnosis for over 7 years now. She began practicing in Hamilton, where she had been living for 15 years, but in 2012 she returned to her home province of Taranaki. For the last five years she has been running a successful clinic in New Plymouth. Sheryl will move back to the Waikato this year to be closer to her partner, and set up another practice – sharing her time between her two homes! With an extensive background in business management – her own and other peoples – Sheryl has gained a lot of insight into starting up, trouble-shooting and stream-lining business practices.

Business Practice
Training to be a Hypnotherapist is only the first step towards achieving our goal of being successful in the profession we are passionate about! We need to set up, and operate, a sound practice in order to survive in this competitive world. At all times, we should also strive to project a professional image. Sheryl will be giving some insight into the following areas of business practice:
  • Setting up business – home clinic vs commercial clinic
  • Business Plans – the importance of direction
  • Compliance – statutory requirements
  • Professional Image – clinic and hypnotherapist
  • Basic Accounting – tips to minimize tax
  • Marketing/Support Networks
Dr. Laura                                                        BoddingtonDr. Laura Boddington
Dr. Laura Boddington is a neuroscientist working at the University of Otago in Dunedin. Laura graduated with a PhD in Neuroscience in 2016 where her thesis investigated how electrical brain stimulation could be used to enhance functional recovery following a stroke. Laura is interested in understanding how the different regions of the brain are wired up, and how individual cells communicate with each other in both the healthy and diseased brain.

Neuroscience 101
You can’t put your finger on the mind, but you can put your finger on a brain. Here we’re stepping away from the mind and into the brain where Laura will give a broad overview of the anatomy and physiology of the brain. We will talk about the major brain structures we can see, all the way down to the microscopic cells that form the crucial building blocks of our brain. We will cover how these neurons communicate and our current scientific understanding of how information and memories are stored in our brain.

Testimonials From Gaye McBride
Gaye McBrideFeedback from a client today, who came for a Weight-loss session ar the beginning of February, he didn't know what to expect and wondered how and if it was going to work he said, when he phoned today he said he's lost 10 kilos to date 5k fairly quickly and 5k over the last month or so! Yay! Found he could make time to ride his bike and in his words certainly eating a lot less and better. I am so proud and pleased for him.  I Love my job!

So Cool recieved this 8th April 2017
Hi Gaye
Just want to drop you a quick line and say it's now been 4 years since I first meet you and 4 years since I had my last smoke!  I haven't looked back since my session with you! The scariest part was how easy you made it! The hour I spent with you has had the biggest impact on my life for which I will always be grateful. Thank you so very much. Tasha

All such advertising may bear a statement attesting to the fact that the advertiser is in fact a Hypnosis New Zealand supporter - so you need to be one!
Our Criteria for Accepting Free Commercial Advertising: Commercial advertisements considered to be in direct competition with any Hypnosis New Zealand activities, may in some cases be run in the Events Calendar, rather than in the main body of the newsletter. Still for free though - but only if that business has openly expressed and demonstrated support for Hypnosis New Zealand!
