About Me 

'Helping one person may not change the whole world, but it could change the world for one person' 


Kia ora! My name is Mia. I'm an Adelaide born Clinical Hypnotherapist. I am also many other things, a mother to a human and one dog, a scuba diver, a nature and animal lover, an explorer. After many years working in the law enforcement industry as a criminal intelligence analyst, I have reconnected with my values and identified what feeds my soul. I have a diverse career history and includes being an investigator, adult educator, a recruitment and HR consultant, a lecturer and tutor in criminology, and a research and policy analyst. I moved to Aotearoa (New Zealand) in 2014 with my dog Sunny, and fell in love with the country, culture and its people. However my journey has not always been an easy one, with some significant traumas thrown in to really test me. My healing journey has involved several therapeutic and healing modalities, and without doubt, hypnotherapy has been the most powerful and profound tool that has transformed my life. So much so, I decided to take steps to change my career path entirely so I can share this gift with others who are ready for change. Are you ready? Let's kick start your journey to a better life, together! 

About Me 

About Manta Mind Hypnotherapy

Have you ever had the privilege of seeing a Manta Ray glide through the ocean? Perhaps on TV or in person while snorkelling or scuba diving? I’ve been lucky enough to have this experience twice whilst scuba diving and I can’t say enough how powerful and moving it was for me to be in their presence, observing their natural behaviours and admiring their nature. Manta Rays effortless and easily glide through the oceans even when the currents are strong, they navigate the waters calmly and graciously, even when predators are around. They travel confidently and purposefully in the direction that gives the least resistance. They emanate strength, courage, curiosity, confidence, and playfulness. When the underwater currents in my life are strong, I anchor to the image of the Manta Ray for all these reasons. Manta Mind Hypnotherapy was created to help people find their inner Manta Ray, whatever this means for you.
