Trish always remembered being fascinated by babies and how they came into the world and so was really excited on first becoming pregnant in 1999 and then again in 2001. Unfortunately, both of these births were not what she had envisaged. During her third pregnancy she discovered HypnoBirthing® and the benefits of having a Doula by her side. This time she laboured and birthed easily and calmly and this made her realise that birth can be the way she had always thought it was meant to be.
This experience led her to change the direction of her life and in 2006 she became a Certified HypnoBirthing® Practitioner. Since then Trish has enjoyed working with families as they bring their children into the world. The use of hypnosis during the HypnoBirthing® classes also intrigued Trish and she became fascinated with the untapped potential of the subconscious mind. As a Clinical Hypnotherapist she can assist HypnoBirthing® families with issues that are outside the scope of the classroom setting. This broadens the scope of her practice to include a larger range of issues. Hypnotherapy commonly helps alleviate anxiety, stress, addictions, depression, and PTSD. It can assist with weight reduction, improving self confidence and infertility as well as many other issues.
Trish has always provided a good sounding board, listening with a compassionate ear and wanting to help people solve their life’s challenges. Her genuine desire to connect with people needing support, underpins her skill set and she is often told that her calming manner and comforting voice offer reassurance to the wonderful people she has worked with over the years.
Trish says…“I look forward to being by your side as your Hypnotherapist should you need support with life’s challenges…or as your HypnoBirthing® Practitioner for when you are pregnant and choose a birth free of fear…or as your Doula for when you decide that you need hands on emotional support during birth…or maybe all three! Thank you.”

Dr Julie Phillips-Moore
(Clinical Hypnotherapist & Naturopath)
Ph.D., Master Behavioural Health Science (Distinction), B.A.(Psych.), Diploma of Clinical Hypnotherapy, ND.
Julie works in the area of health psychology which is a holistic approach that focuses on how all facets of your life have an impact on both your physical and mental health. Psychological studies show that the mind and body have a strong bi-directional link. As mental health declines, physical health can wear down; and if physical health declines, it can make a person feel mentally and emotionally, “down.”
She treats a wide range of health issues by combining hypnotherapy, naturopathy (which includes homoeopathy and Bach flower remedies), Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) and nutrition.
Some of the conditions treated are:
- stress-related illnesses
- anxiety (incl. performance anxiety)
- sleep disorders
- mental and adrenal fatigue
- high blood pressure
- eating disorders
- digestive imbalances
Unexpressed emotions such as anguish, guilt or shame often felt after a termination, or sadness or grief after a miscarriage, can create extreme emotional conflict which affects every cell of the body and can cause or compound reproductive problems.
This mind-body programme reduces stress and increases confidence, instilling a sense of control which maximises chances of conceiving naturally and increases the success of medical assistance such as IVF.
Julie obtained her degree in Psychology, her Masters Degree in Behavioural Health Science (Distinction), and her Ph.D in the field of psychoneuroimmunology from the University of Sydney. She has lectured at the university in the Faculty of Health Sciences as a staff member and also as a guest lecturer in complementary medicine.
- Diploma of Counselling
- Diploma of Homoeopathic Medicine
- Diploma of Nutrition
- Advance Diploma of Nutritional Medicine
- Diploma of Herbal Medicine
- Certificate of Advanced Training in EFT (Tapping)
- Diploma of Remedial Massage

I am a mother to six children (one no longer graces us on Earth).
I am also a licenced Hypnotherapist, birth educator (trained in using Robozo Techniques), child educator and parenting consultant and baby sign educator.
I am in the process of becoming a certified Dunstan Baby Language educator as well.
I first discovered Hypnobirthing in my second pregnancy, 13 years ago… and have used it in every labour since! I feel in absolute control, utterly empowered and I am always so excited for every labour and birth. I wish every women has the opportunity to have such delightful and exquisite labour memories as I do.
I am extremely passionate about pregnancy, labour/birth, babies and parenting. I long to bring peace and empower families to laugh, love and live together in such a way that no one feels helpless and alone. I am here and I can help.
I also believe that the techniques and thought processes taught in Hypnobirthing goes well beyond the pregnancy and birthing stages of parenting. You will understand what I mean by this after just one session!
(Amongst all this, I thoroughly enjoy riding my cherry red motorcycle (2016/650 Hyosung Aquila) and scuba diving; I am in the process of becoming a Dive Master.)
HYPNOBIRTHING – The Mongan Method
“Childbirth is not something to be feared; it is a natural expression of life. With HypnoBirthing, your pregnancy and childbirth will become the gentle, life-affirming process it was meant to be. ”
Ladies and Gentlemen… you do not have to be afraid! You do not have to recount the horrific events and suffer from the trauma, guilt and sorrow that so many feel after ‘enduring’ a birth they felt no control over.
What if… what if you could feel in control, at peace and absolutely empowered through your birth journey? What if you could recount the story with tears of joy and pride?
It doesn’t have to be “what if” when you learn to use the correct techniques and develop the proper mindset.
This birth is yours and I want to give you everything you need to feel and BE empowered then birth like a BOSS!
Contact me Now. I am so eager and excited to be a part of your parenting journey!!
