I am a ReEmergence Consultant, and I guide people through their personal journey into 'Selfness'.
As a professional trainer and speaker, I help people tap into the wonderful resources that exists innately within us. I counsel, coach, teach, guide, mentor and support people through the arena of life with its many gifts, opportunities and challenges as they ReEmerge into their selfness
- by dehypnotising you out of your unconscious and restrictive human conditionings that brings about cyclic life events, followed by
- reigniting and establishing a workable natural state of awareness to maximise the unique gifts and abilities that is you, and
- realigning you 'back on track' with your unconscious drives and inner calling.
My background is made up of an array of therapeutic modalities including psychology, clinical hypnotherapy, counselling, psychotherapy, NLP, BodyTalk™, Psych-K™, life coaching, soul regression, Life Between Lives™ and Interactive Drawing Therapy™ (to name a few). In addition to that, I developed a process called Re-Emergence Therapy that clear old and unhelpful programming, hence enabling people to return back to their essential way of being and therefore experience productive changes in their lives.
In my earlier years, I worked in the pubic sector assisting troubled youth and individuals released from prison transition back into life. I then moved into clinical work as a Clinical Hypnotherapist and Life Coach for more than fifteen years which allowed me to work mainly with helping people overcome depression, anxiety and addictions.
Over the past few decades, the personal development and self help arena has been thriving and persistently blossoming, providing valuable resources in the form of self help books, goal oriented success workshops, alternative therapy and healing services alongside mainstream counseling, psychotherapy and psychology practices. Up until recently, people have been able to find relief in seeking for solutions externally through these avenues, working through past traumas, while setting meaningful goals for success and happiness.
By late 2009, I became acutely aware of a strong shift in the role that therapy played in (or rather, no longer played in) an ever increasing group of people. To better align myself with these shifts, I moved-on from my role as the President of the New Zealand Hypnotherapists Registration Board Inc.
The global tide of consciousness has been changing more and more drastically as time passes; and the momentum has continued to accelerate; as more and more people began to discover that what used to work, now no longer works for them. Where therapy used to bring relief with the resolution of issues, people now find that many issues they thought had been addressed and resolved in the past are now reemerging into their lives with new vigor. Many try returning to therapy but find that ... instead of alleviating their problems, they become more confused and often fragmented after standard therapeutic interventions.
But it was not until the end of March 2010, when I experienced a traumatic brain injury that things began to change drastically for me. Just as Jill Bolte Taylor, Donald Neale Walsch, Eben Alexander, Eleanor Longden and Tom Shadyac did, each one of them experienced a powerful journey of self discovery that shifted them into a higher state of awareness, understanding and purpose.
My journey into selfness allowed me an expanded view of the existing theories and practices held by professional therapists and practitioners of different modalities. Since then I have run public and professional presentations to explain these life changing shifts being experienced by so many people, providing relief, understanding and comfort that their journey has been one of reemerging empowerment rather than a threat of mental health. Therefore in October 2013, Selfness Today was birthed to meet the evolving needs of people experiencing these powerful life shifts in consciousness as one reemerges into one's unique ' selfness'. So, I invite you to take your place in the world because it begins with you.
At present, most psychological and emotional complaints such as depression, anxiety, panic attacks are mainly addressed with medication and referrals to therapy, however most people these days don't need therapy or hypnosis ... What most of us need, is to find our own sense of 'Selfness' so that we can truly liveby fulfilling our greatest potential and ultimate purpose.
Selfness Today has a vision to empower and awaken individuals to the unrivaled power and wisdom that lies within themselves. A power that allows for true freedom of the Self that far exceeds anything else external.
A client once eloquently described experiencing this shift as having a connection to an ‘internal therapist’ who seems to know so much, who resonates a sense of being at peace with life no matter what happens.Without having to explain much more, we both knew that we were coming close to the end of our time of working together as it was almost time for her to graduate.
As a graduate of Selfness … one responds to life in perfection. This is the only form of wellness one should aim for. I invite you to join me on the journey to your Selfness today. So, let us start to discover how great you truly are and how you can let that light in you, begin to shine out.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have.
As one’s awareness of life grows, the awareness of the soul also grows. Given that the soul has its essence that has a path of it own to forge, the soul needs to progress through many different and sometimes challenging experiences that will test one’s resolve and connection to life. When a person reemerges into the present, like a butterfly, it had to encase itself into a cocoon or chrysalis and transform itself from caterpillar into a butterfly. At one point, the caterpillar was no more and the butterfly was not yet … the space in between represents the very intense process called Spiritual Emergence, where the self as one knows it disintegrates into nothing recognizable in order to rebuild a totally new form.
Soul ReEemergence takes and / or supports an individual through spiritual emergency and one step further into the ReEmergence stage and beyond so that the birthed butterfly can become fully fledged..
This is the most important aspect of the self because since birth, we have been conditioned to believe that when we think of ourselves, we are selfish and that selfish is bad. Then comes in the label of the self being the ego creating everlasting battles of wills. So when we believe that to be true, then we deduce that being selfless must be good. Hence deepens the imbalance.
When we recognize that having a healthy sense of Selfness is not an ego trip, but a relevant and crucial ingredient in the recipe of a complete life, we can truly embrace all that we are and to also embrace all that someone else is themselves. Through empowerment comes strength of Selfness and the greater whole. Once empowered, one cannot go back to being held back again.
Once we have travelled a great distance and carried with us the baggages of the world and its limitations, it is always good to reconnect to the spiritual side of us. When we do so, we are rejuvenated and inspired. When we can tap into the spring of life, we are also aware of the unlimited resources available to us.
In order for one to be clear and complete in the Universe, one has to be complete within one self. Then when we connect to the greater whole, judgement is non-present and truth is constant.
Universal Clarity is achieved when one has a strong root within the self in order for the connection between the Universe and the person to be possible.
We hear people talk a lot about living one’s life purpose as people are awakening to the realization that life has a bigger purpose and that they are an integral piece in the whole. Many individuals become stuck at this point because they focus on ‘finding’ their life purpose ie. as helpers, leaders, educators etc. Often we become stuck because of expectations, obligations and beliefs about what a life purpose is. Sometimes, we start by being on track with our purpose but over time, we loose ourselves because we get distracted and find ourselves travelling a distant unfamiliar path.
Purpose Realignment aids an individual in this life journey with an opportunity to reset back to the last point of alignment and clear away the debris of irrelevant experiences that do not correlated with one’s destined lifepath. When the space is clear, our full potential is reignited and our intentions clear.
We are born into or chosen to be pat of a particular family for many reasons. But most importantly, we choose our family to help us learn the spiritual and human lessons we came here to learn. Each family carries its own blueprint that is inherited from one generation to the next generation, even in adopted individuals.
Family Systems Rebalancing allows for you to
- begin to see the bigger picture of how you fit into this system
- help you recognize the relevant life lessons this family has gifted you and continues to do so
- how to come to a space of peace and unconditional acceptance.
- how to radite your own sense of selfness in amongst the greater family connection.
The story of our life holds the key to many answers we hold about who we are, why we are here and what we are meant to do in this lifetime. Society conditions us to perceive that life is about becoming successful and happy. This perspective distracts us from the true nature of our being here especially when we seek counseling or therapy to talk about our problems with the aim of understanding ourselves with the view of changing ourselves into better and more fulfilled citizens. However, this brings us further away from our core because it focuses on ‘fixing’ ourselves instead of 'being' ourselves.
With Life Analysis, we decipher the codes in the stories of the life we have had so far, to unravel the structure of our future and begin a new journey of awareness and self into a new reality. It is most valuable for people who seem to have repetitive life patterns that loops them into recreating the same life scenarios throughout their lives. It is like going to the same Shakespearian play with different actors. Through life analysis, these patterns are addressed because these outdated patterns are the problem … not ourselves.
