Sonja brings to her classes a passion for helping people learn not just the skills necessary to become an amazing hypnotherapist but also all the tools necessary to build a successful private practice.

She takes a holistic approach in her delivery of the course material ensuring each student’s learning style is considered. Sonja’s passion for hypnotherapy is transparent and shines through during her lessons.
In 2012, Sonja’s son suffered a devastating and life-threatening severe stroke. The knowledge she gained through helping her son relearn and retrain his brain is a critical element she employs to teach others about the fascinating abilities of the brain and our sub-conscious mind.
