Des is one of those women who’s company you can’t help but enjoy. When I’m in her presense, I feel instantly calm and at ease, and I suppose that’s testiment to the work that Des does. The day of Des’s shoot was one that I won’t soon forget – the reason being that Des helped ME that day! Just by being her awesome, soulful, beautiful self. She shifted MY energy so significantly, and I’ll always be grateful to her for that. And I’ve always known it inherently, that when the energy is right, the photos show it! So please, do you yourself a favour and learn more from this amazing woman, and if you’re feeling like you need a significant energy shift, reach out to and connect with Des! You won’t regret it!

What do you do?

With Hypnotherapy I assist clients to release stress trapped in their subconscious minds. Body Stress Release detects and releases stored muscle tension.

What makes your product/service/business different?

Our minds and our bodies are so connected. I am trained as an Analytical Hypnotherapist focusing on assisting clients to release what it is that is holding them back from living the life they deserve. As a Body Stress Release Practitioner, I assist clients to unlock their bodies own healing ability thereby enabling them to move more freely.

Why do you do what you do?

I consider myself to be extremely privileged to partner my clients on their healing journeys and I am inspired by the positive, often life changing shifts that they experience.

What has been your biggest challenge on your career/business journey & how did you overcome it?

My biggest challenge was plucking up the courage to give up my corporate career to start my own practice!

What would you do differently if you could start your journey again?

If I could start this journey again I would not change a thing! I believe in perfect timing and that everything happens for a reason! All my life experiences to date, good and bad, enable me to work from my heart in a client centered, highly confidential and absolutely non judgemental way.

How has confidence impacted the success/growth of your business?

I have an absolute belief that the energy that I put out, will always come back to me tenfold. So, I'm extremely mindful of treating humans and animals with kindness.

What advice would you give other women, either starting out or already in their business/career?

Always aim to do what feeds your soul and allow yourself to experience ongoing growth and learning.

What’s next for you and your journey?

My dream is to open a centre where complementary modalities operate thereby offering clients a holistic approach to their healing.

What one thing would you change (if any) that would make you your most confident self?

I committed myself to dealing with my demons a long time ago and can honestly say that at 56, I am still a work-in-progress! I believe that we are here in this lifetime for only two reasons, to love and to learn, and I look forward to this ongoing journey every day!

What does confidence mean to you?

For me confidence is the willingness to be strong and to be vulnerable.

Anything else to add?

Abigail photographed me six years ago when she took my profile pics for my websites and social media. Her passion and commitment to her craft was so inspiring that I asked her to do an update profile shoot for me. I'm not sure if anyone other than professional photographic models ever feels completely relaxed in front of the camera. Abigail makes it so easy that within no time you are enjoying yourself so much that you are sad when the shoot ends! Abigail's direction and suggestions during the shoot help you to relax to the point that you are able to provide your own input and suggest changes, something that she encourages thereby allowing you to feel empowered and part of the process. Abigail has many unique skills and talents, however, I believe that her ability to sense her clients needs and to adapt her approach accordingly, is what sets her apart and what provides such brilliant results!
