Neuro Linguistic Programming
A local of Waiheke Island, Alana has always been fascinated by what motivates and drives people to do what they do. She also cares deeply for those struggling mentally or emotionally and has made it her mission to help as many people as possible create their dream life.
Alana finished the Practitioner training in Hypnosis, Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) and Timeline Therapy™ with Open Road Associates, and in 2008 she went on to complete the Master Practitioner training in these modalities.
What appealed most about Hypnosis and NLP was the speed with which these techniques help a client achieve long-lasting change in their lives, without needing to go over and over past trauma.
An eternal student who firmly believes the adage, the more you know the more you realise how much you don’t know, Alana has also gone on to study Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) and Psychosynthesis, techniques from both of which she applies in her private practice.
Alana feels privileged to work with modalities that can both alleviate a vast range of issue for her clients quickly and efficiently, as well as creating a whole new set of desirable behaviours to assist them in creating the life they truly desire.
She has also spent time working with Living Without Violence, a Waiheke Island agency working to eliminate interpersonal violence in all its forms, and recently has been studying Anthropology with Massey University to further her understanding of what motivates and moulds peoples throughout the world.
Outside of her professional life, Alana loves to make the most of her beautiful surroundings, getting outdoors with her two sons and their dog. She loves spending time with friends, and to knit and crochet
- a tradition passed on by her grandmother when she was a child.
