Using both NLP and Hypnotherapy creates a toolbox to assist my clients in achieving what they want easily and quickly. Helping people realise their potential, and that they can create what they want from life using these tools is extremely rewarding.

Setting and Achieving Goals with Tracey

Esther, Queenstown.

" Tracey was a wonderful help to me during a period of confusion and indecision. Thanks to her I have now identified my goals and made firm steps towards achieving them. Warm and welcoming, I felt immediately at ease. I would definitely recommend a visit to her - without doubt worth every cent."

Sleeping Patterns

M Pinto, Brisbane

I have known Tracey for sometime now and sought her advice regarding consistent sleeping problems I have been having. During the course of my sessions with her, many other deep seeded issues became apparent and we have continued to work on these to a more than positive outcome. I found Tracey to be very sympathetic to my personal circumstances. During one of our sessions Tracey could clearly see I was becoming more and more unsettled with some of the imaging I was asked to follow, she picked up on this instantly and was able to communicate to me another way to address the issues, which in turn enabled me to process some very deep emotions. I have no hesitation in recommending Tracey and will continue my personal journey with her.

What Parents Have Said About SleepTalk with Tracey

DH Queenstown

"As a mum of two children I am so pleased I learned about Sleep Talk. It is easy to use and is a great way to help build your child's self confidence and what is so fantastic is the benefits stay with them for life. I enjoyed working with Tracey and was very impressed with her knowledge of SleepTalk and the way she guided me through the process, communicating very clearly about what was required. The ongoing support was amazing too - Tracey followed up on all of our meetings and conversations and always gave useful advice to aid the SleepTalk process".


"Hi Tracey,
I just wanted to thank you for introducing me to “SleepTalk”. The nightly sleep talk with my girls is such a simple but lovely way for me to finish the day and even though I’m only part-way through the programme, has already improved my interactions with them. I have noted an increase in their confidence and self-esteem, and an improvement in behaviour. We now have more fun times, and fewer squabbles, which has been hugely rewarding for the whole family."
