Here’s some of the questions we get asked. If the below hasn’t helped please contact us directly by calling +61 451 640 591 or emailing info@apakula.com.au.

What are your qualifications?

I have training in people development to masters level. In addition to this I’m trained/certified in NLP, Business Coaching, Hypnotherapy, massage, at Reiki Master and Teacher level and Reiki Tummo Level II, PSYCH-K Advanced and PSYCH-K Health & Wellbeing and Margerison-McCann Team Management Profile.

What makes you a professional?

I’ve been working in the space of people and behaviour development for over 14 years. In this time I’ve learned and continue to apply that treating people with respect, communicating clearly and having heart is what sets up for great mutually respectful relationships.

In addition to this, my processes and tools give structure to what I do, keep my clients safe and ensure results. I’m a firm believer in ‘does what it says on the tin’, I say what I do, and do what I say. Professionalism started at this very pure and basic level is the beginning of greatness!

How do I know I can trust you in hypnotherapy?

I’ll talk you through the process before I begin and ensure you are clear and comfortable.

As part of my practice I am required for your protection and mine to record (voice or video) all sessions I conduct using hypnotherapy. These are available to you on request.

What is Psych-K?

Psych-K uses a process of muscle testing to create communication channels with your subconscious. The whole process is conducted in a conscious state and I work with you to through it to create and refine goals/beliefs and then balance these through muscle testing.

It’s a great process and creates congruence in your conscious and subconscious mind to make working towards goals easier, and having more abundance in all aspects of life, e.g. health and wellness, spirituality, relationships, career.

What kind of commitment do you have as to how many sessions it will take to get what I’m looking for?

With Psych-K you will experience change with each session. There is of course, commitment required from you to act. At a deeper level you will be more connected and that makes taking action easier, but you still need to take it.

I have one core program which is fixed in length (6 weeks) and other coaching, be it group or 1-2-1) is on-going. Have a look at my work with me page.

Results are immediate, but the better we get with ourselves and what we want the clearer and bigger our goals become and the deeper the level of challenge and change. This is why coaching is a continuous process.

What’s your lead time? What if i can’t get in for an appointment?

I aim to book in clients within 2 weeks of request and therein have a fortnightly schedule with them.

If you can’t get an appointment when you want I’ll discuss alternatives with you.

Can you come to me if it’s not convenient for me to get to you?

Depending on your location we can arrange to work from your location or another mutually agreed and suitable place.

What’s your location?

I’m based in Brisbane. I work from a home clinic in Milton and go to clients as needed. Coaching often takes place by phone or video call. Allowing me to service needs of clients a globally.

Do you have a number of therapists that specialise in specific areas?

Not at the moment. For any work that is outside of my skill set and desired area of practice I will recommend you to other practitioners that will be able to work with you.

It all sounds a little “woo woo”. How will I actually get change?

With PSYCH-K and hypnotherapy it is at a psychological and emotional level. Both processes are creating new neural paths or connecting up those that we haven’t had access to.

The wonderful thing about both, and any of the coaching work I do with you is that it is based on the core principle that you have access to all the resources you need to enable the change/goal achievement to be successful.

Do you have other clients that I can speak with, or see their results?

Check out the testimonials page, or my Facebook page for reviews.

What are the usual results?

Without giving you a blanket response – positive change. More effectiveness, exercising more, eating healthier, having more confidence, more self love, being happier, more focus.

The results depend entirely on what you’re hoping to achieve.

How quickly can I expect the results?

The speed of the results are very much attached to the commitment you put into it. At a neurological level the changes can be quite instant, but there is a process of activation after sessions to deepen and strengthen new neurological pathways.

Is there some kind of guarantee or money back?

Yes. If after a session/program, provided you’ve completed the activations, you have not experienced positive change, I will refund your money.

If you have signed up to a program and pre-paid and wish to cancel, I will refund you the amount for any remaining sessions.

Do you do a payment plan?

Payment plans can be organised on a case by case basis.

I don’t smoke or drink, why would I need hypnotherapy?

Hypnotherapy can be utilised far beyond breaking unhealthy habits for drinking or smoking. Examples include:

  • Healthy eating
  • Creating more self love or self confidence
  • Improve ability to relax
  • Stress management
  • and many more…

What if I feel uncomfortable with you or in the process after a session/number of sessions and I want to opt out, if I’ve bought a package?

If you have signed up to a program and pre-paid and wish to cancel because you are feeling uncomfortable, I will refund you the amount for any remaining sessions.

Do I have to get naked for the massage?

Massages are conducted in your underwear/briefs. You will have a towel/sheet covering the parts of you that are not being massaged

Can I choose a male or female therapist?

At the moment it’s just me. If you are wanting a male therapist I’d be happy to refer you on to a colleague.

What kind of massage is it?

I use a basic Swedish massage technique and blend in deep tissue, relaxation, lymphatic, remedial, shiatsu techniques as needed. My massages are very intuitive, so I’m working to what your body needs and sensing where blocks and tension are in the body and where the source or any referral activity might be to work this out.

What are the results that I can expect from a massage?

Clients feedback relaxation, more energy, more movement. Have a look on my Facebook page for reviews or on the testimonials page.

Is there a way to put all of these modalities together to give me the best results?

This is exactly what I do in my programs the aim is to work out what you need and then I use single or blended modalities to get the best results with you.

Do I get discount if I put the different modalities together?

My pricing is by session or program, you can find further details on my Work With Me page or contact me directly for any specific queries.

What hours are you open from?

Opening times are flexible. Simply get in touch to make a booking.

Do you have a loyalty card?

Not at the moment.

Can I book online?

Coming soon.

How long will a session take?

Sessions are usually 60 minutes.

How do I know if it is the right thing for me?

I have a free 15 minute Clarity Call with clients so we can both assess if it’s going to be a successful relationship. If you start working with me and you change your mind, that’s totally okay. If you’re on a program, I’ll refund you the equivalent amount for any remaining sessions.

What would I do this instead of?

There are lots of modalities out there, Emotional Freedon Technique (EFT), Kinesiology, Phsyio, Psychotherapy, Counselling, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and so on.

It’s really about finding what works for you.

What is this a better option than?

There are lots of modalities out there, Emotional Freedon Technique (EFT), Kinesiology, Phsyio, Psychotherapy, Counselling, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and so on.

It’s really about finding what works for you.

Is this like other some other treatments, where it works but I have to keep coming back to you again for it to keep working?

Once we’ve done some work, you may never have to have more sessions. Equally you may want to keep having sessions. The latter acknowledges that our external environment is forever changing and can have an impact on our emotional, mental and spiritual wellness, so ongoing sessions continue to balance. In addition, if we’re doing future focus/goal setting work, you’ll likely want to continue sessions as you accomplish your goals to set higher ones.

When working with me, I do show you how to facilitate certain processes for yourself so that you are able to implement/create change on your own.

Do I have to do homework to make it work?

Yes. These are your activations. It’s an important part of deepening and strengthen new neurological pathways. Simply creating the internal change is not enough, you still have to do.

I don’t have the time for this or the money…

We can arrange a payment plan to make the cost of working with me more manageable to your budget. And if financial limitations are a block for you, we can do some work around this to understand root cause and balance.

With regards to time, this is an investment in self so that you can have a better life – if not now, then when?

I feel selfish spending this time and money on myself when I have kids…

I honestly believe that being whole in yourself, filled with love, compassion, kindness and gratitude for one’s own life allows you to give more to others. Looking after yourself is giving to your kids.

How do I justify hypnotherapy to my partner?

If you’re experiencing blocks with your partner, please get in touch and we can discuss what the specific issues are so I can best advise on how to approach/justify.

There’s much research/case studies inthe success of hypnotherapy as well as the other modalities that I use.

Do you have a healthcare rebate?

Not at present. I can provide you with a receipt that you can take to your healthcare provider.

Do you offer any classes or is it just one-to-one?

I offer group and meditation classes. Contact me for more information.

Is there car parking?

Yes. The is underground and stress parking available.

I’m nervous about sharing the concerns that I need to process, how can I trust that it does not go any further?

I hold high regard for the level of confidentiality I maintain. If you still have concerns about discussing details of what you want to work on that’s completely okay. I can facilitate content free sessions. This means I guide you through processes that allow you to work through what you wish to without having to share.

Do you make notes/recordings of the sessions so I can take it away and play it later?

Hypnotherapy sessions are all voice recorded and I can send these files to you. General coaching notes are taken and by request/agreement I will send these to you post session.

Can a hypnotherapy session result in past life regression when that’s not what I’m there for or wanting?

It is possible. Your subconscious mind is powerful as is your energetic self. What you are presenting whilst in trance will be what you need to see/experience at that moment in time to allow you to move through whatever problem or growth you are seeking.

What can I expect to happen in the days after?

This will vary depending on what we’ve done in the session. With any massage, you may experience tension or soreness, this is as a result of the muscles being worked out and toxins moving out of the tissue. With any energy work, the resulting experience is very much based on your level of sensitivity – you may feel something or nothing. But with any modality, post session experiences are very individual.

Can you do couples coaching?

Yes, I have a group coaching. If you’re wanting something more specific get in touch and I can evaluate what arrangements I can make for you and your partner.

Do I come only if I have problems? What if I just want a better life?

I do a lot of work with people when they’re experiencing problems or blocks, mostly because that’s when they seek support. That said, I do and have worked with lots of individuals that are simply seeking more or better. My philosophy is that we shouldn’t have to go through pain to grow. Keep seeking better and that’s exactly what you’ll get.
