I had got to the stage where my weight had just been increasing gradually
over time. I had tried the Gym and diets, but couldn't seem to stick to
them. Things always managed to get in the way, and never enough time in the

I had never had hypnotherapy before, but had seen articles on tv and the
internet. Whilst I was keen to try, I was a little apprehensive would it
work for me? I started doing some further research and looked into
hypnotherapists that were registered on the National Hypnotherapists
Register of Australia, if I was going to do this I wanted someone who was
qualified, which is where I found Sharon's name.
I have never done something so easy and comfortable before, during the
visits Sharon made me feel safe and relaxed.
In just over 3 months I have lost 11 kgs, I don't constantly feel hungry or
think about food, the size of my meals have dramatically reduced and I am
aware of when my stomach is feeling full. I no longer eat for the sake of
eating and I am also drinking a lot more water that I used to. I feel good
about myself and I am proud of where I am up to.

My journey with weight loss started from a very young age, being an emotional eater this battle has ruled my whole life. Emotionally, physically, my health, and relationships have all suffered because of it.
I have tried just about every major weight loss centre available, plus internet and magazine diets... and while they worked for varying periods of time, it wasn't long before I'd be once again in my old patterns of eating and on a regular basis binging, and giving into my cravings.
Over the last three to four years the binging has been slowly getting worse and worse to the point where I got to my highest weight ever... 130kgs.
I realised at this point I needed some serious help, so sticking to the "normal" thing to do I went to a dietician, and after a couple of visits I gave up once again due to the fact that she couldn't help with my emotional patterns of eating.
It was at this time that I came across an advert on Facebook in relation to the Gastric Banding Hypnotherapy, (I had looked into Gastric bypass surgery but felt that this was an absolute last resort, and way too expensive), I must admit that I was skeptical, and took another couple of weeks before I got to the point of accepting that this was my last chance to do something about my health and well being. I finally made the call to Sharon......
From the moment I spoke to Sharon on the phone, I knew that I was understood, every scenario I gave, every symptom that I mentioned was met with compassion, caring, and something that I hadn't heard before.... the words, "Yes, I can help you. and my first appointment was booked.
Walking into Sharon's room the next week, I wasn't sure what to expect, but what I do know now is that having Gastric Banding Hypnotherapy has been the best decision I could have made.
I understand why I was doing what I was doing and eating what I was, my old thought patterns aren't there, I don't have cravings anymore, I feel happier, healthier, I exercise everyday and I actually look forward to it and enjoy it.
The added bonus is that the weight is coming off, and while I have quite a way to go to get to my goal weight, I am so excited for my future.
I can not thank Sharon enough

I found hypnotherapy with Sharon was very good. I felt very safe and extremely relaxed.
Normally when I try to meditate or relax and picture a lovely place to be in my mind, I find it very difficult but with
Sharon under hypnotherapy I was able to totally imagine a beautiful place to be in my mind.
'I was in a forest and looking up I could see the sun beaming through the trees, I then went to a small
beach that was totally just for me and on that beach was a small opened cave with the softest sand under
my feet and it was my own little safe haven'.
I was blown away with this imagery as I said, normally I cannot imagine anything.
Under the hypnotherapy I was able to instantly relax. I have recommended Sharon to my friends for various

Just an update regarding the hypnotherapy we did for my gambling. I am please and very excited to tell you that I have not spent one cent in a machine since I saw you. I have been to the pubs for dinner and nights out and had no issues at all. I also went on a cruise where my hubby and I had to walk through the casino many times to get places on the ship and I had no issues there either. I just keep saying whenever I see a machine "I don't do that anymore " and turn my head. Loving the financial freedom I have gained. I even carry cash now. I am so very proud of myself.

I have found the process of hypnotherapy both captivating and one in which it fulfills its promise - I no longer crave chocolate or sugar, am geared to eat only 3 meals a day and have have lost 4 kgs in 4 weeks. As the sessions progressed I lowered my guard and found that I responded more fully to each hypnotherapy session. It was a pleasure to work with Sharon because she explained the concept of hypnotherapy clearly and heard my concerns which made my sessions more meaningful.
Out of exasperation, I rang Sharon to
help me quit my disgusting nail biting habit. I had bitten my nails for over forty years. I had tried everything. I had instances where I could grow my nails, but gauged at the skin around my thumbs with my longer nails until it bled. I would end up biting again. I wanted something to last.
My initial phone call to Sharon made me feel at ease. She listened. Sharon was able to book me in the following week for my first session. From that day I made the conscious decision not to bite my nails again.
At my first session I explained again at how desperate I was to give up my disgusting habit. Sharon asked when and why I “attacked” my nails. It turns out nail biting was not the sole problem. My anxiety was a major factor.
My first session was the deepest relaxation I had ever experienced. I was safe and receptive. After this session my anxiety and fears were reduced and I had no desire to “attack” my nails.
The follow up session, was a deeper relaxation again. My nails are now growing. I don’t chew them or have the desire to “attack” them. I have other relaxation techniques which I can implement. My nails are still growing. I just don't "attack" them anymore.
