About Me

SC image

The purpose of this site is to create a safe, supportive and informative place where people can learn about themselves, and about all things psychic and spiritual.

When I talk about spiritual I’m not referring to it in the sense of religion, it’s in the sense of us all being spirit, being of an eternal, expanding consciousness, and having senses and abilities available to us to tap into.

However often it’s not until we’ve come across an article or heard about someone else’s experience that we gain the confidence to delve a little deeper and give it a go ourselves. This site is to serve as that inspiration; inspiration for exploration.

With that in mind, I’ll tell you a little about myself and my background in terms of the new agey, mind, body and spirit realms, and my professional work. My name is Sharon and I live in Wellington, New Zealand. I was born in Australia however moved to New Zealand about six years ago to open a full-time healing practice. I’d been trying to get my business started in Sydney however I was also working in non-profit.

I’m a holistic based therapist and I work to help people to heal their past and discover their authentic self, which also usually involves exploring their Soul wisdom, or higher self.

Years ago, my life looked quite different to how it does today. I was depressed in my job but had no idea of what else I could do, I had extremely low self-confidence and had difficulty expressing myself even to my friends.

I hated my body and lived in an internal world of self-criticism, judgement and doubt. I had no idea what the point of life was because each day seemed like such a struggle.

These days however, I am happier and more peaceful than I’ve ever been. I enjoy expressing myself and experience deep and fulfilling relationships. I’ve discovered my soul passions and been able to implement major life changes so I can follow these dreams.

The major turning point in my life was discovering healing and hypnotherapy, and with the support of my therapist, I was able to understand myself and my thoughts better, word towards healing my past, and gain the courage to change things.

We all need a little help sometimes, and if we can only reach out then great change can ensue.

It’s through my journey, the highs and lows, that I have gained a deep understanding that you can be peaceful, loving and feel lighter no matter what is going on around you, because all of those feelings stem from within you. I also discovered the key for all of these feelings and possibilities, and the key to happiness was love and acceptance of yourself.

The realisation that you can actually be your own best buddy; always encouraging and supporting yourself, helping you to the best that you can be. And through this support and self-love you can discover your passions and dreams, and then actually have the confidence to make them your reality. That was huge for me, and something I didn’t even know or think was possible for me.

It’s my passion to help others realise this for themselves.

To understand there is another way to live – a much MUCH more enjoyable way to live. I help people to heal the past and become free from restrictive, limiting beliefs and old patterns that keep them stuck, and actually discover their true worth – their authentic self. I help people to love and accept themselves, and through this self-acceptance discover their utter magnificence and their innate ability to heal and empower themselves. I also love to facilitate people having awakenings, connecting into angels and their spirit guides, exploring past lives, and discovering their gifts and developing their intuition.

I’m a Holistic Hypnotherapist and Reiki Trainer, and work with people one-on-one from my clinic in Wellington, New Zealand, as well as online via Skype. I also sell healing guided meditations and healing stone crystal jewellery.

A Little Bit More of My Story   Hypnotherapy, spiritual, hypnosis, past life, life between lives, soul,

I discovered this work many years ago, at a point in my life when I recognised I needed some help. I could barely think over the loud, critical voice in my head; a negative voice that was always there to tell me what I couldn’t do and reminding me what I had done ‘wrong’. Then one day as I was flipping through a newspaper I noticed an ad for a Hypnotherapist. I had no idea what Hypnotherapy even was, but I went along anyway; I was desperate. After my first visit I knew I was on the right track. I could feel a major shift right away and it felt good. These sessions helped me so much that my passion was ignited. I knew this was what I wanted to do; that this was what I had to do.

With a new career path I went back to study, initially completing a Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy at the Academy for Transformational Psychotherapy and a Diploma in Hypnoenergetics at the Institute of Energetic Transformation and I commenced work with clients. My practice grew along with my interest in the healing arena, which lead me to embark on a long and in depth journey in energy healing, starting with an introduction to crystal healing, as well as completing my 1st Degree Reiki, to going on and completing the full Reiki Mastership / Teacher training.

At this point I was working from a new clinic in Newtown, Sydney and loving every minute of helping people to heal trauma and pain, and regain their personal power, as they changed their inner landscape to be one of self-belief and confidence. Although the more my clinic grew the more I was encountering very interesting experiences – many of my clients were spontaneously regressing into past lives! After being a fan of the work of Michael Newtown and Brian Weiss for sometime, I knew this was a path I was ready to go down. Luckily for me I found a Diploma in Past Life Hypnotherapy being held in Melbourne by The Newton Institute!

After completing both the The Newton Institute Diploma, as well as a Diploma in Past Life Hypnoenergetics from the Academy for Transformational Psychotherapy my sessions changed greatly. Working in the realm of our soul energy and higher wisdom helps people personally experience a connection to their higher self, spirit guides, accessing and healing past lives.

My work blossomed in this clinic however as time rolled on I knew that it was time to listen to the nagging nudges I had been experiencing from my soul and the universe to move New Zealand! So the following year my partner and I relocated to Wellington, NZ and we now run a full-time Healing Centre in Seatoun, as well as work with clients worldwide through Skype.

I am so passionate about helping people discover and realise their full potential, and to help them no longer feel held back from living a full and fabulous life. I help people to become empowered, to discover who they really are and to love what they find.

  3. Hello Sharon! Congratulations on your new blog! I really like how you kept things clean and simple. Everything is easy to find. As for feedback, the only thing I can say is that the two photos on your About page look pixelated. Perhaps you can use ones that are higher in resolution.
    Happy blogging!!

  5. Thank you for the follow and leading me to your blog. Wow! So much great content and energy here.

    And what a beautiful life story. So true that loving and accepting ourselves is key.

    I love the title of your site. Much love!


  6. Hi Sharon. I wanted to thank you for contributing a few words to my journal book. I am editing it now. I noticed a few words of your comment got a little bit mixed up in the proof. I haven’t found your original comment yet and wanted to check with you if this sounds right.
    “My ‘here’ is similar to yours, a deep and awakening connection to my Self and to all of reality. When I am ‘here’ I am wide awake and often barely able to move as I marvel at the wonder of all of us. Here is where everything is miraculous!”
    (It was the part “I marvel at the wonder of all of us” that I changed that was messed up. Is this correct?) Thank you again!!
    Love and many gentle blessings,


    1. Hi Laurie, sorry I haven’t responded to this sooner. I haven’t really been on the blog arena for a little while. That is wonderful you are using it for your book. I can’t wait to read it when it comes out. Yes that is pretty much it, hoewever just a small change to the line you mentioned: ‘as I marvel at the wonder of it all’
      Thanks 🙂 hope you are well! Sharon xoxo

  8. Hi Sharon, Thanks again for taking the time to read through my blog post today. I have just started looking at your page now, but will spend more time in the coming days. We do seem to be on a similar path, wanting to ease the pain we clearly see in others. Its amazing that your healing centre is near the ocean, that is a goal for me, Ocean, horses, and a healing Centre…to do everything I do and help all who come my way 🙂 Love and Hugs Suzanne Bertolas

  10. I love your ethos of helping others. It reminds me that I must do it more often. I need to get away from my rather selfish attitude. By helping me I only help myself, but by helping others I help myself at the same time. Win win! 🙂
    Thanks for your inspiration, Sharon.
