I am a Registered nurse. I started my nursing training in 1982. I have had many different roles and worked in a variety of healthcare settings including public hospitals, private hospitals and community settings. I have completed Post Graduate study and many other training courses which at the time were relevant to my place of work.
Whilst we are lucky in New Zealand to have a great health system it is not without it’s shortfalls. I have worked as a Pain Clinical Nurse Specialist in a large hospital. Since I started in that role I have observed the lack of services available for the large number of people who suffer from Chronic Pain. It has been well documented in the literature that where medication does not work for pain hypnotherapy is very effective.
I studied at the New Zealand School of Professional Hypnotherapy, online with Mike Mandel – click to following link ro read my graduate success story. Recently I attended a 5-day hypnotherapy immersion course with Helen Mitas in Australia.

"Hypnotherapy with June was an amazing journey. She spent significant effort getting to understand my specific situation and catered the sessions to suit my individual needs. I’m so grateful for June, she helped access my subconscious and got me through some major mental blocks. I feel like me again and I’ll be forever thankful!"
"I have worked with June for many years, and her passion has always been infectious. Since she brought hypnotherapy to the patient bedside, we have had another powerful string to our bow. June has helped all manner of folk, and has an amazing ability to facilitate distressed and injured people get centred, grounded, and back in control. I am really glad she is sharing her care and skills with a wider clientele."
"Oh my goodness, June is so lovely. I made an appointment with June because I was having insomnia for weeks on end and I couldn’t pin point what was causing it. Prior to visiting June, I had never had hypnosis. I was a bit apprehensive but June made me feel very safe during the session. After the session, I was amazed at how much my subconscious mind can have an impact on my everyday life. During the hypnosis, I uncovered what was causing my insomnia. Once I was able to identify that, the insomnia immediately improved and then disappeared over a matter of a week. I feel that this hypnosis was very valuable and I would recommend June to anyone. Thank you June."
"My name is Douglas, I am 14 years old and I had a really bad case of needle phobia. After seeing June at her house I was able to talk about my fear. The next day I was able to have my surgery and face my fear. The breathing 7/11 she thought me really helped me, I can also use this when I need to in the future. I recommend June. Thank you June."
"Hypnotherapy with June has brought so much positive change into my life. After only the first couple of sessions I was already starting to see significant improvements in my mental well-being. June has a way of making you feel so comfortable and safe. She has a strong commitment to helping you achieve your goal, and has helped me understand my own situation at its roots. I would recommend June to anyone who is in need of positive change. Thank you June.”
"June is a very intuitive practitioner and she helped me with long held unhelpful beliefs that were holding me back and tainting the way I saw the world. I can honestly say that after the first session, this changed for me. June’s ability to flex the sessions to match my changing needs meant that every interaction with her was extremely worthwhile one for me. June is intrinsically motivated to help her clients, so will be committed to finding the most beneficial path with you. ”
Finding the most beneficial path
"I was slightly apprehensive about hypnotherapy at first but June was so calming and reassuring and the process was easier than I imagined it would be. I started noticing results in the first few weeks and am excited to continue working towards my goals. I highly recommend June and clinical hypnotherapy."
Easier than imagined
I was first told about clinical hypnosis through a specialist I am seeing for CRPS in my leg and foot. I had tried almost everything else and had limited success with easing the intense and crippling pain. I had never tried hypnosis before and felt I had nothing to lose. Going in with an open mind was the best thing I did. June was so informative, professional, and understanding. Her previous experience in helping people in pain came through and she explained what I could potentially expect. She listens and responds to your situation and her approach is very calm, friendly, and supportive. June has helped me to have times of reduced pain and improved sleep which has been fantastic. She has taught me how to do self-hypnosis so I can use the techniques wherever and whenever I need to. I would recommend clinical hypnosis with June to anyone who suffers from chronic pain. Be open, be willing, be prepared to put in the work, and keep a positive mindset.
Changing unhelpful thought patterns
"I had the pleasure to work with June as a part of a multidisciplinary medical team focusing on chronic and complex pain. She is genuine, dedicated and has a profoundly holistic approach to health and well-being. June is able to harness aspects of healing that conventional medicine seems to fall short on. In my experience working with June, there were many occasions where the benefits of clinical hypnotherapy were more valuable than anything that came from drug therapy – coming from a pharmacist, I think this speaks volumes about her work."
"I was a bit of a sceptic when it came to hypnosis but was very surprised by my response to the process, especially as we were meeting via zoom during lockdown. June is very friendly and professional and goes out of her way to make you feel comfortable and safe. I have struggled with my weight all my life, but now feel that I have regained control, losing 4 kg during our zoom sessions. June gives you tools and resources that you can continue to use after completing the sessions, which was super helpful. A surprising extra benefit of the hypnosis is the improved sleep I now have!"
"June helped me by taking me on a journey where I worked out what the learnings were from the things that had caused me to be sad and angry in the past. June’s sessions were more gentle than the things I had done before that, and yet they were so powerful. My sessions with June helped me gain a new calmness and confidence that I had been searching for, and those feelings have stayed with me. I recommend June to anyone who wants to learn from their past and move forward in their life."
Moving forward in life
"I considered hypnotherapy as a way of breaking an unwanted habit (cheek biting). During the initial sessions June guided me through exploring the relevant experiences I’d had throughout my life that led to feelings of anxiety, hurt, anger, shame and self-criticism (emotions I didn’t consciously think about before).
June’s caring and warm approach gave me a safe space to develop self-compassion and practice alternative ways of framing experiences and emotions, and ways of responding to situations.
After two sessions I noticed a positive change in thinking. As the sessions progressed, positive thoughts became positive emotions and behaviors (without conscious effort).
Hypnotherapy far exceeded my expectations. Not only did the unwanted habit of cheek biting go (after thirty years of trying to stop) the unhelpful emotions I’d been carrying also went. Accessing my subconscious under June’s expert guidance unburdened my mind allowing me to live life to the full.
Words can’t express the gratitude I have for June for nurturing my self-compassion and improving my relationship with myself (and others) and quality of life overall."
Breaking an unwanted habit
"June was such a lovely and welcoming person when I first met her. She was very patient and took the time to acknowledge how I felt. I came to her with a serious phobia of needles/injections and the tools June gave me made a huge difference in my journey to getting my first jab. The environment she works in is very pleasant and safe as well. In the end, I managed to get both of my vaccines with ease. I would highly recommend seeing June, I couldn't have done it without her.."
Phobia of needles/injections
"I am an experienced psychotherapist and would not refer a client to someone unless I was confident in their professionalism and skill set. June is someone I am happy to refer people to."
