Elaine Martin, Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapist
Hello, I am Elaine Martin and I am so glad to welcome you to my site today. I won’t bore you with too much information but just some basics as to why you might want to work with me.
I was born in Scotland (don’t ask my age, it was a while ago), lived in France for an incredible and exciting 3 years and then immigrated to Australia in 1980. I completed a degree in business and built a successful career in HR (Human Resources) specialising in coaching, counselling, team building and training spanning 20 years. I worked for a number of different high profile corporates as well as mid level businesses in senior positions but eventually I found myself becoming disillusioned in the way this industry was going and decided it was time to opt out. I was always interested in psychology and the workings of the mind and I stumbled across the field of hypnotherapy during a vacation in France back in 2008, quite by accident. I was both intrigued and fascinated by the power of the mind and started my journey to learn as much as I could.
I moved into study mode and over the years have completed the following qualifications: Psychotherapy (Diploma ICHP), Clinical Hypnotherapy (Diploma HH), 5 Path Advanced Hypnotherapy*, EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) Practitioner Level 2, Hypnotension Certification, Virtual Gastric Band Practitioner, Rewind Technique Practitioner. Like many things the skill is in the doing and in 2009 I set up my business MindOverMatter. In the beginning I saw thousands of clients for free but it wasn’t long before I become a proficient therapist.
Dedicated and extremely passionate about my work I am continually researching and developing programs to ensure I provide my clients with the best and most up to date therapeutic experience possible. I am constantly updating my skills and regularly travel to different parts of the world to train with the best Trainers on the most progressive and up to date techniques.
My sole purpose is to help my clients improve the quality of their lives. I use a variety of tools and techniques including Suggestion Therapy, CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), Parts/Ego State or Schema Therapy, Age Regression, 5 and 7 Path and psycho-analysis to do this. I pride myself in my ability to guide my clients towards awareness, understanding and finally resolution of the issue or presenting problem. Using a client centred approach I deal with what comes up rather than trying to fit a technique to a client.
I am a Clinical Member of AHA (Australian Hypnotherapy Association), am on the National Register of Clinical Hypnotherapists, am registered as a Private Health Provider, hold a Blue Card and a Senior First Aid Certificate.
Although I have expertise in dealing with most emotional problems and issues I specialise in
- fears and phobias
- weight loss
- motivation and focus
- kids and teens
I also works with clients and children on the autism spectrum as well as clients struggling with medical challenges such as cancer, autoimmune disease and pain.
About 2 years ago I set up a Youtube Channel where I share my work with people around the world. Using a mix of Hypnosis and Guided Meditation I am creating a library of content aimed at helping my listeners becomes healthier and happier in their lives. Although this channel caters for all listeners my primary focus is children and sleep. With over 13,000 subscribers and close to 3 million views I get a tremendous amount of joy sharing my work with those in need around the globe. I am also in the process of creating an App for Kids Hypnosis which will be available by May 2019.
I am an artist, writer and a lover of travel. I have two grown up sons and live in Brisbane, Australia.
