Hello and welcome to HypnoLife.
I am Dr Fabienne Chevalier (Ph.D). I am a qualified Professional Clinical Hypnotherapist and the owner of HypnoLife. I trained with the nationally-accredited and Government-approved Academy of Hypnotic Science, Australia’s foremost trainer in hypnotherapy. I am a Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) practitioner and coach. I am also a qualified Practitioner in Virtual Gastric Band (VGB) weight loss treatment, having trained with Sheila Granger who pioneered the VGB approach in the UK. I am a Professional Member of the Australian Hypnotherapists Association (AHA).
At HypnoLife, I take a confidential, highly-personalised, individualised and empathy-led approach to help you to make positive lasting changes to your wellbeing, health and life. Importantly, I will work in partnership with you to enable you to identify the behavioural and emotional factors and barriers that may be inhibiting your ability to make positive changes in your life. Consequently, I use a combination of approaches, techniques and methods (not just hypnotherapy) to help you to overcome negative thoughts and behaviours and to replace these with strategies that promote, and result in, positive behaviours and benefits to your health, wellbeing and life.
My interest in Clinical Hypnotherapy stems from both my own personal experience as a client and from my subsequent research into this field. I first encountered hypnotherapy over 15 years ago. I have personally gained immensely from its positive therapeutic benefits in several areas of my life such as insomnia, pain management, IBS, stress and fear as well as professional and academic performance. This personal positive experience of hypnotherapy led me to examine the research and evidence that demonstrates the wide-ranging effectiveness of Clinical Hypnotherapy. This body of evidence continues to highlight the ever-increasing capacity for Clinical Hypnotherapy to offer substantive improvements in many areas. In particular, the research and associated evidence supports the effectiveness of hypnotherapy in weight loss, pain management, anxiety/stress-relief, insomnia, quitting smoking and gastrointestinal health.
Prior to starting my hypnotherapy practice, I worked for 20 years as a university academic (Assistant Professor) in several leading U.K. universities and as a Training and Development Consultant in a large multinational energy company. I gained a doctorate (Ph.D.) thanks to my academic research that focused on understanding the relationship between language, the mind, meaning-making and behaviour. I have published several research articles. I am also the editor of both a book and a specialist research volume on language, meaning-making and behaviour and conscious and subconscious patterns of communication in social interaction and in business and institutional settings.
During my 20 years of university lecturing and academic research as well as in my training and development roles in the corporate environment, I have gained extensive experience of mentoring, coaching and supporting students and colleagues to enhance and strengthen their academic, personal, emotional and career development. In universities, I have helped students on the road to success by equipping them with appropriate study skills for improved performance and helping them to overcome study and exam stress and associated lack of confidence. In the corporate environment, I have led and delivered a portfolio of training programs and activities for international professional staff in a number of areas such as change management, work-related stress and work performance to enhance their personal, emotional and career development. Thanks to this broad experience, I can draw on a large pool of techniques and tools to tailor my approach and treatment to your specific circumstances.
As a working mother with a young family, I also deeply appreciate and understand the many and varied pressures and challenges that both parents and children face, which allows me to offer consultation and therapy that can help you to develop a better balance between work life, family life and personal wellbeing.
At HypnoLife, I offer a range of programs designed to work closely with you to allow you to live the life YOU want to live.
