About me

Why do I choose to work as a Nlp Life coach and Hypnotherapist?

The answer- because I truly feel I  have found my calling and believe in what I do.

My job allows me to do, what I have done naturally for as long as I can remember…. being able to really listen to people, allow them to offload, support, emapathise, guide without ever realising that this may be a very particular skillset which I possess. Only now, I do it with unsurpassable tools and techniques in place. My assumption then was that everyone was the same, and cabable of the same qualities I exuded.

This assumption together with an element of being side tracked, meant that I did not follow my natural path in life. I continued to go off track for most of my life. As a mum, a wife, a daughter my life followed and got enveloped by family responsibilities and my identity got lost somewhere within. Yes I had a family life which fulfilled me, but it did not fill that desire to do more… more of what?… that I didn’t know. I stumbled through careers aside motherhood, only to find that although I had many prerequisites for these these jobs,  something was always missing. That human element, that need to connect with people on a deeper more emotional but practical level. I always wanted to help, to listen to and support people … it came absolutely naturally and connected at a visceral level.

The natural progression was towards a career as an NLP Life coach and hypnotherapist. I thank my lucky stars for transitioning my experiences , learning from them, and growing into the career I have today. It fulfills me to be able able to help others to get clarity in their lives , surmount difficulties, release blockages and find happiness in what they do and who they are, and prehaps a dash of longterm visions and goals thrown in to help them along their way.

Neuro Linguistic Programming

NLP looks at how we intake and interpret information in the course of our lives. We absorb messages, little nuances, larger disruptive events and then interpret them in a very subjective and unique way. Often acting them out in our lives through deep rooted programmes which may or may not benefit us. These programmes often manifest as negative behaviours such as phobias, fear, addictions, trauma, lack of confidence and self esteem, anxiety  which block us from moving forward in a positive direction.

Using the power behind language and its interpretation, together with Nlp techniques and tools, I help you dislodge underlying  programmes or resulting negative behaviours so that they may be replaced by much more positive ones.


Hypnotherapy works as its own entity or combined with Nlp techniques. It connects at a safer, and sub conscious level through relaxation and hypnosis,  allowing you to by-pass any self capacitated barriers and consequently , releasing and bringing about change holistically …change that you would not have thought possible.

Life Coaching

Life coaching, forms a large umbrella encompassing so many areas of life. Its purpose to discover what is creating discord in someones life, remove it and provide a solution incorporating purpose, beliefs and values systems, goals or whatever may be needed to achieve harmony and balance. Life coaching offers the building blocks needed, after deep rooted issues have been removed. Providing the freedom to move forward to a positive and happy future.

I particularly love working with women and adolescents going through life’s difficulties, whether it be confidence, anxiety, self esteem, depression or other issues surrounding them.

My longterm desire to make a lasting difference in their lives and the lives of others and elleviate as much sadness as I can, and substitute it with happiness, hope and a smile.

I  aim to bring these processes together, to help people feel complete, so they can truly say …I have the “Best of Me” right here right now.

So now you know what drives me to do what I do, the ability and the desire to make a difference to someones life. If you want me to help make a difference to yours, please do contact me.


Nlp has helped me a lot. I use the techniques a lot when I need to calm down or if I’m not feeling at my best.I have been able to see a change in my behaviour when I am in arguments I remember that it helps me. I was  also able to find the confidence to leave my old friend group and find a new better one. Although there were things that helped me before like drawing, I could still feel the anger inside of me because I wasn’t able to talk about it with anyone, so when I had the choice, it made me feel better as I  don’t really like to express my emotions to my family.Talking to someone who understood , listened was good for me as before I felt like I was alone.. Even after stopping Nlp(sessions), for a while I still continued to use the tecniques and they still continue to help me ..so thank you.

"Raina has been thoroughly professional and empathic in her approach. She has enabled me to quickly focus on the key issues that have been holding me back and has helped me see my career with fresh eyes. Her process has given me clarity on what I need to do to achieve my career and personal goals and the steps I need to take.” J.P

"I was feeling stuck during a period of my life where I needed a big change. Raina worked with me and got me to look at things from different perspectives, and work through them in a structured way. She helped me see that I needed to take time for myself, and to realise that rest was as necessary for success as hard work. It was whilst on a break to Chicago that  I made my decision to return home to my family in Australia, and relocate my job. As soon as I made my decision, I felt as though a weight had been lifted and I had a huge sense of personal satisfaction.

Thanks again for your kindness and help Raina, it’s really meant a lot and, it seems it was just what I needed.” Mel
