Welcome to Mindful Health, Hypnotherapy & Counselling.
Lee-Anne is a clinical hypnotherapist specialising in Medical Hypnoanalysis. After obtaining her Psychology degree with First Class Honours Lee-Anne has been helping people in the community for over 20 years.
Lee-Anne has worked closely within the Western Australian Government in Perth in community drug and alcohol program development for both rural and Perth metropolitan area for communities wanting to address substance abuse. During this time Lee-Anne was completing her Masters degree is Community Psychology. In addition, Lee-Anne has managed Perth Government Agencies designed to therapeutically support community, family members and substance users. Lee-Anne was also involved with the QUIT line available for people wanting support to stop smoking.
During her career, Lee-Anne became very aware of the co-morbidity issues associated with addiction such as stress, anxiety and depression and these are areas of great attention to Lee-Anne. Often it is not just the substance user who suffers from stress, anxiety and depression but also the family members who can be deeply affected by severe long-term stress, depression and anxiety thereby acknowledging that a greater focus on mental health outcomes for all individuals is essential for effective change. Furthermore Lee-Anne recognised certain triggers that would continue to keep a person and the people around them habitually imprisoned in their responses to these triggers which appear to be unconscious defenses for survival at the physical, emotional and spiritual levels.
Lee-Anne recognises the value and effectiveness of hypnosis for bringing out these underlying issues triggers for mental health concerns and embraces the modality to further assist individuals, couples and families.
Lee-Anne’s experience with hypnosis in particular hypnoanalysis allows the opportunity to utilise this effective technique in all areas of change. This drug–free approach is developing as a popular method for managing issues besides addictions and mental health to include areas of personal growth. Hypnoanalysis is very effective for increasing performance in sport, business (sales), public speaking, exams and learning for both children and adults. Furthermore, hypnosis therapy is very effective for chronic pain management, sexual concerns, weight loss, bedwetting, insomnia, teeth grinding and migraines as some examples.

Lee-Anne’s Honours research thesis topic was ‘understanding the experiences of women who birthed at home’. As a mother of 4 children herself, Lee-Anne also experienced a home birth and had a desire to conduct the research to ensure that other women became aware that there are alternatives to the current options for birthing and to encourage women to make informed decisions about birthing options. Therefore Lee-Anne also specialises in supporting pregnant women to birth naturally and pain-free by teaching hypnosis, breathing and relaxation techniques to pregnant women seeking a stress-free birth experience regardless of where they choose to birth their baby. The magnificence of letting go of preconceived fears and learning self hypnosis allows a woman to relax confidently whether she is in a hospital environment, a birthing suite or at home and supports a woman to achieve her birthing plan.
The Mindful Health Hypnotherapy and Counselling Centre has been created to provide a safe therapeutic space for individuals to feel supported through hypnosis, Medical hypnoanalysis, HypnoBirthing and meditation which is focused on well-being for mind, body and spirit.
