Michelle Sherry Jones – HypnoWise
A Social worker turned Hypnotherapist, my interest in self-healing really began with a diagnosis of IBS in the family, which could not be treated medically. Taking matters into my own hands, all of the research turned to hypnosis as the ‘cure’. What? How does that work?? I wondered to myself..
First of all I’d like you to understand that all hypnotherapy is not the same. So if you have experienced hypnotherapy, chances are it was someone reading out a script to you (and hoping that it ‘works’). This was my initial training too (effectively trained to read a story..), though with a background in Social Work working with very traumatized clients, I was not satisfied this provided effective help to those who needed it most (without attending for 12 or more visits!). My initial Hypnotherapy studies opened a whole new world for me, which led to studies in Meditation Therapy, which led back to advanced training in hypnotherapy including a Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy & Psychotherapy as well as in Conversational Hypnosis. Conversational Hypnosis is where I found what REALLY works to overcome those ‘deep-seated’ painful patterns that govern our lives (and cause anxiety, depression, stress, IBS. chronic illness, phobias, addictions…). All of my training allows me to provide a range of high-quality hypnosis and psychotherapy services to meet your unique and individual needs – and no re-visiting past trauma required!!
With a focus on health and wellbeing, my dream is for all people to realise they have the very resources required within to escape the walls of their own ‘invisible prison’ – as well as to activate and utilize those dormant healing abilities that reside well within all of us! I now happily spend my days in my home studio in Gawler SA helping others to heal, overcome addictions and mental illness and become the power in their lives, and learn about the powerful unconscious mind.

Sue Lohmeyer – Herbs, Bach Flowers and You
Sue trained at the Dorothy Hall School of Herbal Medicine with an emphasis on preventative and common sense in all aspects to health and well-being. This was after a long period of playing and coaching hockey at many levels and having a family. By offering an holistic approach, looking at the whole person including their individual circumstances, Sue is assessing the connections between mind and body. These connections are about the way we feel, think and behave mentally, emotionally and physically whether in a positive healthy or negative unhealthy way, which leads to illness/sickness/disease. Sue has over 15 years experience currently practicing in Westbourne Park and Walkley Heights, combining Herbal Medicine, Bach Flowers Remedies and Nutrition in her Tonics as well as diagnosis support through Iridology. Herbal Medicine has very ancient roots, using plants as the chosen method of support for the body to heal they self. This natural method of medicine is as relevant, if not more so in today’s society, as it has ever been. By treating the causes of health issues you are giving yourself the option of many positive life-changing outcomes. Sue will focus her talk on ‘Herbs, Bach Flowers & You’. You are unique so different Herbs and Bach Flowers are going to be more relevant for you.

Further to my recent training, over the course of 20 years previously I have attended many seminars, lectures and courses in order to search for the best practices while I was farming. I owned a “Certified Organic Beef, cereal and seed farm”. In the meantime it was also studying various aspects of how our food can be either beneficial or detrimental to our health. This interest was triggered by the death of my father from cancer.
My education and training was by:
- Dr Arden Andersonis both a doctor and a farmer – Soil to plate to health
- Elaine Ingham a microbiologist – chemicals in conventional agriculture killing insects, and microbin
- Graeme Saint, Gary Zimmer and Jerry Brunetti Ultimate Biological Farming –soil – plant- animal – our nutrition.

- Bruce H. Lipton Ph.D. Cellular Communication
- Samuel Epstein – world leading toxicologist
- And again so many more
