Hi and Welcome to The Alternative Centre. You might be wondering where I am situated. I run a successful hypnotherapy practice on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland and I travel to Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and other parts of Australia, New Zealand, Singapore & South Korea to conduct training events, workshops and seminars in hospitals, for groups & individuals.

I am an experienced and international award winning Hypnotist. I wasn’t always like that. I used to be shy but that changed when I learned Hypnosis. I learned new ways of using my mind , new ways of living, breaking new ground in my level of thinking, and aspirations. I surprised myself more than I had ever imagined.

I love helping people make positive changes in their lives, just as I had done myself and I can help you too. I can help you become more relaxed, confident and fulfilled. Teach you ways of using your mind to improve your health & fitness, to get rid of phobias, and a host of bad habits such as smoking, over eating, drinking excessively. I can help you get to the bottom of your problems, remove blockages, fears, tension and anxiety, easily and effortlessly. I can help you make depression a weather condition and not one you own. You will discover more about yourself and find that your life will improve beyond your imagination. The secret is, we have that wisdom hidden within ourselves waiting to be discovered. Let me help you discover it today.

Wanted to share with you the happy news that Alice Springs received its first natural/ water birth with HypnoBirthing this weekend.

So beautiful. The HB couple arrived at the hospital at 3:30pm and at 5:25pm baby calmly born in water. No drugs, no tearing. Breastfeeding well. How fantastic is that.

This news made my day. Hope it makes yours.

Just another affirmation that HypnoBirthing works...Our son, Beau Fredrick Dennehy, was HypnoBirthed in the caul after a deeply empowered and connected birth 2 weeks ago. Thanks so much for your training. It went in!

I am so amazed at the results and by how easy it was to do.  It really clinched it for me when Marilyn said that when we put our rubbish out for the bin man, we don't feel a need to bring it in and go over it again, this really struck home.  This technique has helped me let go of all the negative emotional things that were bothering me and changed the way I feel for the better!

Nothing can describe the beauty of our birthing experience with HypnoBirthing® . I never dreamed after having two children with another method that I could have so easy a labor.

I just wanted to drop you line to thank you both for all your efforts toward delivering a great training session in Sydney.  It was thoroughly enjoyable and most rewarding in terms of a refresher, especially with regard to its incorporation of the recent changes to the syllabus.  I very much appreciated your warmth and generosity as a teacher Marilyn, and all you have done to date for us somewhat 'isolated' HypnoBirthing practitioners in Australia.
