I have been professionally trained in nursing, midwifery and Hypnotherapy for many years. My original professional qualifications are from Australia and I am associated with and recognised by many International Memberships. I further supplement my professional development with accredited courses and published literature. However, all my qualifications only act as many tools to support my clients. 

In 2023 I purchased the Australian Business The Sleeptalk Process® which has allowed me to structure a gentle parenting approach to support all children and all families.  As a mother of four TCK's (Third Culture Kids) I am particularly aware of inter cultural, and generational family belief systems and dynamics along with their ramification on parenting styles, beliefs and the affect on children. 


With the purchase of The Sleeptalk Process® business, I am honoured to continue the unwavering contribution that Joane Goulding has made to pedagogical psychology. 

With four decades of paediatric and early childhood professional qualifications and exceptional mentors along the way, I bring an unparalleled approach to Creating Functional Families®.

Being a passionate advocate for modern and progressive parenting and with a deep commitment to providing authentic and personalised support to parents, acquiring and rebranding the trusted resource of The Sleeptalk Process® has allowed me to better cater to the evolving needs of today's global families.


I am dedicated to authenticity and professionalism and this sets The Sleeptalk Process® apart from copycat mimicry which unfortunately, has in the past, tried  to convey the idea of The Sleeptalk Process®  in attempted duplication. Through unwavering dedication, commitment, and belief, I am steadfast in my pursuit of excellence and progress Creating Functional Families® for modern parents.  Progressive, educated parents are invested in giving  genuine and effective guidance to their children as they navigate parenthood and raise the  generation that they have created. 

I firmly believe that The Sleeptalk Process® is unparalleled, unmatched and a Breakthrough Parenting Miracle and I am determined to support families globally with and advocate for family wellbeing and emotional harmony.

My Approach

I am a confident clinician and my nursing and midwifery professional background allows a level of understanding and empathy that supports clients with progressive compassionate hypnosis. My approach is client-centred and individual.  I like to support my clients effectively with only a few short sessions.  Of course, this is not the "norm" for most therapy, which can have clients in programs for months and sometimes years, never releasing them from a situation but rather allowing them to "deal" or "cope" with something that is inappropriate to drag around through life. I do not use scripts or cookie-cutter approaches in my sessions and after some initial information, I will tailor-make your hypnosis session around you and your ultimate expectation of the session.

Many adults try to seek support and clarity for a range of mental and emotional obstacles in their lives with conventional modalities. Hypnotherapy supports comfortable and effective release and removal of negative thought forms, feelings and emotions by getting to the subconscious source of your problem or concern.

Equally confident with young children and teens, I am supportive of family units and will often work with parents to achieve the very best outcome for the family unit. I have owned and operated my own neuro-cognitive early years centres in Hong Kong for close to 30 years.  During this time I have supported thousands of parents with the neurocognitive and sensorial applications to many childhood learning obstacles. Distorted self-esteem is one of the damaging long-term consequences of both diagnosed and undiagnosed learning obstacles. Low self-esteem can manifest long after the initial obstacle and can continue into adolescence and adulthood, leading to long-lasting impacts on one's well-being. Supporting teens to overcome this emotional disempowerment is vital for youth and the adults they are to become. By supporting youth and teens with hypnosis, which is fast, rapid and private support, we can reset the negative emotional and mental beliefs that eventually can manifest in their physical health as an adult.
