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.

I have been back to a normal sleep pattern for sometime now, for which I am very thankful! I'm sure I thanked you when I received the second CD covering much of the content of our first session.However, the "update" is that soon after using this cd & with my own God given personal insights too my sleeping pattern improved & was soon sleeping well again.

Several of my patients have used HypnoBirthing® . The result: little or no medication and yet, a calm and more comfortable mother.

I’m a labor and delivery nurse. I work in the field of obstetrics every day. I can hardly believe my eyes  mothers in labor. It’s amazing as I watch HypnoBirthing!

I just wanted to send you a quick email to say a very big 'thank you' to you. I attended one of your introductory sessions down at Eco Child North Lakes as I was pregnant with my first baby and quite nervous about the impending labour. I found that the information and techniques that you provided in that short session gave me an instant confidence.

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.
