About me and how I can help you!

Hi, my name is Christina and I am passionate about empowering, supporting and educating women/couples through this special time of fertility, conception, pregnancy and birth. I have a holistic, client-centered and caring approach, supporting you as you take realistic positive steps towards your goals.


My background is in Physiotherapy with a keen interest in the mind/body connection.  This led me to train as a Counsellor, Clinical Hypnotherapist, NLP Practitioner, Pre and Perinatal Educator & Certified HypnoBirthing International Practitioner. For the past 12 years I've worked in the Rockingham/Mandurah area offering face to face, private or group sessions as well as online, worldwide.  

If you would like to discuss how I can help you, I offer a free 20min. introductory session. To book or for more information, please contact me here.


 I look forward to hearing from you.

Counselling is a process of talking about and working through your personal problems by helping you to clarify the issues, explore options, develop strategies, increase self-awareness with a goal of facilitating positive change.


EFT is a simple yet powerful stress reduction method.  It combines psychotherapy and acupressure, bringing together elements of exposure, cognitive therapy and somatic stimulation.


The state of hypnosis is used in Hypnotherapy to bring about change on a subconscious level. When we are ready to make a lasting, positive change in our lives, we must address and change negative subconscious patterns.


Hypno-Birthing® combines evidence-based childbirth education with relaxation, breathing techniques, positive imagery and affirmations to reduce fear, pain, and stress for a calm and positive birth.

“We had an amazing hypno-birth, A. was completely focused the whole time, we used relaxations, affirmations, light touch massage, diffused oil, and many birth positions we learnt.

In the end it was an amazing under water birth with 0 complications. And we got to meet our little man. We owe you this amazing birth experience,


Thank you for everything,”

Couple from Perth
