Answers to your six top questions
Yvonne has a unique combination of skills using Hypnosis, NLP and Coaching, Biopsychology and Neuroscience Coaching and is thus well-placed to speed up your journey to a balanced state of mind-body wellbeing.
does it work?
Neuro-linguistic-programming [NLP], hypnosis and coaching are tools to help you gain awareness of self-sabotaging inner dialogue which, when altered, eradicates emotional toxicity allowing you to thrive again.
These therapeutic tools have a superb track record at changing negative thinking and destructive behaviour. Find a detailed list with explanations here.
will it take?
This depends on the issue to be addressed but generally it takes around 3—6 sessions. Your first session of 1½ hours is a time to get to understand you and your problem and to tailor a path forward. Follow-up sessions of around 1 hour dig deep into the issues at hand and explore ways to overcome them.
do I go?
Consultations can be via teleconference, in-person or as part of a Wellness Retreat package at Protea Ranch, a short 26 km ride north of Fourways. We have downloadable maps and other location information to give you.

Hello Yvonne, it is going well thank you. I do miss it sometimes but then I remember that I have quit and I know I won't ever smoke again. It was really so much easier this time than quitting has been before. Only three days after our session I was able to sit with friends and watch them smoke without wanting one at all. Obviously, there was the occasional aggravation but it lessened so quickly. I'm feeling great.
Hello Yvonne, sending you warm winter greetings. I just wanted to share something. My regular Counselling therapy is leading me straight to divorce. Focused so much on the things that I report that my wife has been doing. I can arrive at this conclusion myself. In [psycho]therapy I was hoping to change my childhood programming; learn to be more nimble and positive; to build myself up through love and appreciation of myself and as a result of others. When we met, I said to you that I have clear purpose for my life and an able healthy body to do it, but the mental and emotional programming seems to sabotage me regularly. This was what I was trying and challenging myself to change. I felt this direction strongly with you in 2 [hypnotherapy] sessions more than [in] 7 months of [psycho]therapy. I am not addressing the faulty programs in Counselling. My relationship with my mother was stuck for years in an unhealthy spiral. You and I released the bottled emotions and inserted a positive program. Now that relationship is healthy and full of love, compassion and respect. I share everything with her. And getting to know her love and support differently. My marriage needs work. My business needs work. So lots of work ahead. See you as soon as we are allowed to meet. Thank you. Keep well and healthy. — SQ
Thank you Yvonne! And I am looking forward to seeing you in the future, as I have a feeling [my child] will also benefit from seeing you! You have been a huge help to me through the years! — BH
Dear Yvonne, This last month, and especially since I saw you last, has been a rollercoaster of a ride in terms of my emotions. I realised that I was meant to come and see you more for sorting out past issues that plague me and less about the smoking. I fell off the wagon regarding the smoking (I can identify the reasons why) and while I am disappointed in myself (and have let others down) I think the hypnosis brought a lot to the fore for me. I strangely don't truly feel like a smoker again. That said, I need to still the address the smoking but it all feels a little overwhelming right now. I also feel into quite a dip in terms of my depression and have been doing a lot of soul-searching, journaling etc. You have given me a wonderful gift and I am very grateful for that. I need to sort some things out over the next little while and will re-connect soon. — JB
Hi Yvonne, thank you so much for your support, it really means a lot. The last few weeks have certainly been challenging and today is the first day I have managed to even go online and do normal things. I am doing so well, thank you. I am in so much of a better place. I realized the last two months or so were all about doing some 'clearing' and that has made it a lot easier to understand. I will definitely be back to continue where we left off. — NS
Just wanted to say thank you so much for the session I think I really needed that release, it feels great, I feel like a new person and have new perceptions yet again. Thank you so much. I don't know how to explain how the session was for me, I don't recall seeing anything except the windscreen just before I hit it, then it was just a mess of emotion, I was not expecting to scream like that I am normally not a screamer… sorry, I had weird dreams last night though… I cannot make head or tails of it yet but I know it was related very sketchy and patchy bits of info. While we were busy I did some stuff on my own and imagined that all the neurons that were broken and damaged which I saw as a black spot in the brain were being put back together, the builders were there putting all the pieces back together. Much of it is still a blur but we will see what happens at least I can now go to that place and not have the heavy emotions that were attached. Today was the first day in 11yrs that I was able to think of that day and the weeks that followed without the burden of the emotions. It was great. Once again my heartfelt thanks for everything you did before during and after the session. — BB
Still feeling very good about the whole thing, Thank you again, seems like a weight is gone, the munchies have also disappeared, which is always a bonus! I was in the shop the other day and I would normally have bought that doughnut or chocolate and I looked at it and the first thing that went through my mind was 'you don't need this anymore!' so it seems the session had a bonus effect I was not expecting, ha-ha.
Hope your journey home went well and your tyres managed to withstand our roads. Thanks again for providing Francistown with something new. Everyone really enjoyed the sessions and I certainly appreciate the support you gave to [S] and [J]. Hope to see you again. Please let us know when you decide to visit Chobe or Okavango — you [are] more than welcome to use us as a stop over. — SP (Memory Workshop Francistown)
