Engage your wisdom using hypnosis, NLP and Yoga

As a Wellington Hypnotherapist and Yoga Teacher one of my greatest passions in life is helping people understand what motivates them and how to create the life that they want emotionally and physically. I help with not only addictions but also anxiety, depression, childbirth, pain management, weight management and more.

If you want to change but don't know how, that is where Hypno-coaching is a wonderful way of helping you to gain more clarity about what you want and then achieve those goals more rapidly. I help guide people through that process of change.

I enjoy helping people understand how to engage their own wisdom and move away from the beliefs that may have been restricting them in their pursuit of happiness. I work with all ages including children and teenagers, over the years I have seen how powerful hypnosis can be, helping people with all sorts of issues. I love the fact that I am in a field of therapy that truly works. My Wellington hypnotherapy clinic is located in the heart of Wellington and I also have a space in Petone that I see clients every Monday.

    "I feel like a better version of myself. Totally aware and open to everything. Learning the sky is the limit and I possess everything I will ever require to achieve whatever I want. Meredith what a gift you have.

    Totally mind - blowing."


    I have been practicing Clinical hypnotherapy in Wellington for over 24 years, I am also one of the Wellington trainers for the New Zealand School Of Professional Hypnotherapists. I am a Professional Member of the New Zealand Association of Professional Hypnotherapists (NZAPH) and have been President of the NZAPH for the last three years, I am a registered hypnotherapist with the New Zealand Hypnotherapy Registration Board (NZHRB) and currently sit on the the NZHRB board. I believe that hypnotherapy is a fantastic therapy that has such a wide application. Over the years I have helped thousands of people and still love what I do; it is very satisfying to witness people making empowering changers in their lives. When you learn to understand how to tap into your imagination it is pure potential. When you shift your mind your body follows and what you think about in this moment has the potential to become your future.

    I have also completed a 200 hour Yoga Teaching Training and offer support for people who would like to approach their health in a more holistic way. meredithplayweb

    Hypnotherapy and NLP

    By using Hypnotherapy and NLP I help clients to identify what they really want and begin to build a life plan that allows them to be at their best by exploring some of the belief systems they have and developing new and more supportive ones.

    Are you surviving but not thriving and you realise that feeling this way is not good enough anymore? This is an opportunity to check in with yourself. You can start working on resolving issues that may be causing you stress or stopping you from feeling like the best version of yourself.

    Identify internal self sabotage

    I help clients to identify the internal self sabotage they are creating and through that awareness help them to shift that inner dialogue to become more focused and empowered. They go from just surviving to thriving by engaging these powerful tools. When you change the way you think about something you will change the way you react to it.

    Personal/ Professional coaching

    If you are ready do upgrade to a better version of you then personal coaching may well be the key that will help you to unlock your natural potential. Do you deserve the best that life has to offer?

    What I see people experience

    One day I had a lady come in who had no idea that I was a hypnotherapist. She had come in for counselling. When I asked her what she wanted all she said was "I want to feel happy." I asked her to describe what happiness meant for her and she said, "I'm not sure." As we got further into the hour I helped her to further define what happiness would feel like, sound like, look like. I could feel that she was beginning to get a clearer idea about what she needed but knew that she needed help to believe that she could be happy. So I said to her, "Have you ever considered using hypnosis? Because that is one of the tools that I use." She said no, so I explained what it is and she agreed to give it a try. At the end of the session I asked her how she felt she said "that's really weird I can't stop smiling." I knew at that moment that within that session something had changed that would help her to achieve the happiness within her life that she wanted.

    I use hypnosis because it works. It's that simple. I have seen so many people change and it is the most rewarding part of my job.

    If you have found yourself on this website maybe this is your turn to try hypnosis in your life. I am happy to answer any questions you may have. You can email me or phone and I will get back to you. I have been working as a hypnotherapist in Wellington for over 24 years. Over this time I have seen many of my clients benefit with how they think about what they want to achieve and begin on their journey using hypnosis, that transforms their lives. Whether it is to stop smoking, lose weight, get over a phobia or just feel more confident, hypnotherapy is a fantastic tool.

    I have also completed a 200 hour Yoga Teaching Training and offer support for people who would like to approach their health in a more holistic way incorporating yoga.

    You have the power to make a positive impact in this life, all you need to do is decide to do this, and that is where you begin, at the beginning, and every moment is a beginning, every moment has the potential to be positive.

    Do you want to feel motivated, so you can achieve your goals, and become empowered in everything you do? I like helping people like you, to design a life that brings, happiness and fulfilment that you deserve.

    Working with Businesses

    Does your work place suffer from a culture of over worked and undervalued? Is there a breakdown of communication? Are teams suffering from stress with no clear solutions on how to deal with this? Then this is your lucky day.

    I have been working with both sales teams and management helping to create better environments where everyone feels heard and valued. I specialise in effective communication using core NLP tools and I also teach groups about mindfulness - clinical studies have shown this to be one of the most effective tools to deal with anxiety.

    In this busy world we need to feel happy in all our environments. We spend a large proportion of our day at work but if the workplace no longer feels safe, then it can have some terrible long term effects on our health - this means more sick days and loss of productivity. A happy team is a productive team.

    Many businesses grow into dysfunctional spaces where they can lose touch with their workforce, our basic human need is to feel valued and with the ever increasing expectation to achieve KPIs cause many staff to meltdown due to stress that has not been addressed. I am not only able to facilitate wellness workshops within the business, I can also offer one-on-one coaching that can help individuals process their needs and find ways of resolving conflicts within the workplace before it reaches the point where you need to go to mediation.

    Working with groups of around ten people is ideal as this enables everyone to have a chance to actively participate within the group. I'm able to design custom workshops that will suit your needs, and can provide training offsite at no extra cost.

    If this sounds like something your business needs, please give me a call or send me an email - I'm happy to answer any questions you may have.
