Barbara Bowen—Hypnotherapist, NLP practitioner, Reiki master

Since my earliest memory I have been fascinated by the human brain, mind, body connection. As my life evolved and changed over time, it was a natural transition for me to undertake studies in Psychology. Once completed, this led to a knowledge quest into more effective and responsive therapy options, that better suited our modern changing world.

Discovering a sense of balance is key in mind and body, this is what I offer as a wellness practitioner. Through the use of a variety of modalities, or practices, we will work together to discover a path forward that is designed to enable you to achieve your goals.

We sometimes forget that we have the control,

Clinical Hypnotherapy allows direct access to your subconscious automatic belief systems. It is in this part of our human mind that harbours so many outdated tools that no longer work in today’s society. This therapy offers an effective, struggle free approach to adjusting the way we usually respond to everyday stimuli.

NLP is another extremely effective tool for your wellness toolbox, this process allows for us to refocus and change the way we conduct our internal conversations. In todays world it has been found that our internal conversations are not only extremely important to the way we view our world and the people in it but are also a major player in who we believe ourselves to be.

I know that together we can shift your current barriers, whatever they may be, propelling you into your future. The modality is not the focus of your wellness, you are the focus!

I’m looking forward to meeting you and becoming part of your wellness journey.

Julie H–Bowen therapist

  • Full Member Bowen Association of Australia
  • Full Member Bowen Therapy Academy of Australia
  • Diploma of Specialised Bowen Procedures
  • Cert IV in Bowen Therapy Mind Body Bowen
  • Bachelor of Science with graduate qualifications in Adult Education and Science Communication

After studying massage therapy in the 1990s, Julie experienced a range of natural and traditional therapies but was often discouraged with the results, or disappointed with the number and frequency of treatments needed to address musculoskeletal issues. That was until 2013, when Julie tried Bowen and experienced sustained results for several longstanding issues, including seemingly unrelated issues, and within just a couple of treatment sessions.

From personal experience, and from working with people from all walks of life, Julie understands how stress can impact us physically and emotionally, and works closely with clients to identify their stress and anxiety triggers, and the aggravates of their pain and dysfunction.

To help people back onto the road to improved health and wellbeing, Julie delivers Bowen treatments in relative silence – providing the time and space for the client’s nervous system to relax – helping the body back to its preferred state. A sustained reduction in stress is something that everyone can experience with Bowen, even from the first session.

Julie can use Bowen to assist clients with recovery from injury or illness, to provide support through difficult times, to improve fertility for women and couples, and for the occasional maintenance session for balancing of the mind and body or to help maintain optimal health and vitality.

Julie can also work with other allied health professionals to support clients with complex physical, medical and/or emotional issues.

Bowen sessions can also be used as a special treat or given as a thoughtful gift – as clients often say Bowen is the most relaxing and rejuvenating natural therapy they have ever experienced.

Treatments are by appointment only and Julie is available for daytime and early evening appointments on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays with appointments also available on most Saturdays (call to check). Home visits can be arranged for some clients if required.
