Sonia is an Author, Product creator, Seminar/workshop facilitator and highly sought after as an International leader in her field, she frequently speaks on various topics which have included: Anxiety Disorders, meditation, mindfuness and hypnosis, energy medicine, the power of the mind to heal and manifest, human consciousness, health - healing, and spirituality.
Sonia’s last engagement with pharmacy was as a pharmacology lecturer at the Australian College of Natural Medicine (ACNM). Having founded the Hypnosis and Health Practice in 2004, Sonia’s practice focuses on education for self-awareness, with hypnotherapy as a key tool to precipitate health and healing in her clients, along with meditation and mindfulness practices. Medication and self-hypnosis tools which Sonia has developed and used since 20014, assist clients therapeutically for a variety of health and related issues. These include anxiety, stress, fears and sleep issues, whether associated with one or more Anxiety Disorders or not. These tools are not available elsewhere and are unique to Sonia’s work, making it extremely easy and enjoyable to develop a regular habit of mindful meditation and self-hypnosis – tools which deepen clients’ meditative and self-hypnosis experience to effect change on the unconscious as well as conscious level.
Of the many training courses that Sonia has participated in, and facilitated, the ones she considers pivotal in moving her onto the hypnotherapy path have been: weekly workshops with Dr. Francesca Rossetti (author of Psycho- Regression), Gestalt Group Workshops with Clinical Hypnotherapist and Psychologist Rick Cunnington (London, Tuscany, Cape Town and Johannesburg), lectures and workshops on Whole-Self Pre-birth Psychology with Dr. Ellis Snitcher (Endocrinologist and Principal Lecturer for the Complementary Medicine Degree course at the University of Middlesex, London), and seminars and workshops with medical intuitive Paul Anthony Jenkins (throughout UK, Sydney).
Sonia has held various positions on the Australian Hypnotherapists Association (AHA) committee over several years, having also presented numerous workshops to members. Sonia’s next significant presentation will be to GPs at the National RACGP Annual Conference in October 2018 (GP18) on ‘Mindfulness and Hypnosis for Anxiety Disorders’.
