My name is Silke Herwald and I welcome you to the Australian Hypnotherapy Centre on the Sunshine Coast.

I believe

 That's me: Silke Herwald

That's me: Silke Herwald

- in You...
- you can make the changes that you want...
- that just living with it is not an option
- more in you than you might believe in yourself
- you can make those changes that you want
- logical thinking won't help you in this situation
- you need to solve with a very different level of understanding
- you can't do it with logical thinking or with your conscious mind
- asking you thoughtful questions is a great way to start
- in responsibility, your responsibility that is
- empowering you by sharing information and tools is an important part of this
- in being your partner in making these changes
- telling anyone what to do will never work
- lecturing, patronising or taking about the problem is utterly useless
- you can do this! 


I am a Mind Trainer, Master Hypnotist, Master Practitioner of NLP and Practitioner of Clinical Hypnotherapy with many years of experience. I have undergone extensive training in Australia, the UK, the Netherlands and Germany and I'm a Supervisor for both the Australian Society of Clinical Hypnotherapists and the Australian Hypnotherapists Association. My private clinic is situated on the Sunshine Coast, Peregian Beach and Birtinya, where I specialises in assisting people from all walks of life make the changes they desire. My approach to my client’s problems is one of curiosity to help you achieve what you want as easily and quickly as possible.

I fully understand that every person is different, hence every problem is different and the time frame for ever person to make the changes is different too. My approach to working with you is flexible, professional and thorough. Previous clients motioned things like genuine, straight forward, inspiring, caring and down to earth... I have used my skills to create the life I want for myself and I am very skilled at helping others do the same for themselves.

A long long time ago I grew up in Germany and in Tokyo, Japan. Living in different places I quickly developed an ability to make people feel at ease. My deep passion for working with people from all backgrounds and all walks of life, probably has its roots in my multicultural upbringing. Hence I am also completely impartial, highly flexible and open to all ideas and thoughts. 

I was raised bilingually (English and German) and am very fortunate to be an Australian citizen.

After a degree in business and marketing from the University of Cologne, a keen interest in modern psychology and a long and very successful career in the corporate world, I wanted something new, something closer to my heart, something that felt more true to me. So I decided to study modern hypnosis, clinical hypnotherapy, Coaching and real NLP  and followed my dream to help people facilitate real, lasting and profound changes.
Now I assist people like you change their lives in a way they want to. Move past their monsters, be happier within themselves and live more fulfilled lives in alignment with who they actually are.

Just give yourself some time and don't expect it to all happen in the first session... 

 I love the ocean, kite surfing, hanging out with my husband and friends, running along the beach with my dog, travelling, a good cup of tea, books, researching and learning especially about the brain......

I'm a Master Clinical Hypnotherapist and Master Practitioner Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), hold certificates in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy (REBT), am a Master Hypnotist and hold certificates in Modern Wellness Psychology, advanced medical hypnosis and Life Coaching. For all my trainings I have sought out the best in their fields because I figured if I wanted to become really good at this I'd better learn from the very best. Among other Institutes and Academies I have received my Diploma of Modern Psychology from the Mind Academy in Noosa Heads, QLD,

Over the years I have assisted thousands of clients from all walks of life make profound changes and often life changing break throughs.

As much as I love working with individuals I also thoroughly enjoy speaking, teaching workshops and facilitating seminars for groups, teams and businesses. Businesses, entrepreneurs, government bodies and sports teams have all benefitted hugely from my services. I have found that when people understand more about unconscious processes they not only become happier with themselves but also better team players. It is quite amazing how much you can learn in only half a day when you have somebody to show you the easiest way to learn and actually teaches you not what you should be doing but how to do it.

I welcome you to just give the clinic a call (07) 5373 8566 or send me an email to find out more about how I can assist you or your team, because I am sure you will enjoy your rewarding journey to a happier and more fulfilled life.
