Lisa Webber

Having studied and worked for many years as a school teacher and university tutor, Lisa has a thirst for learning. She co-authored a series of textbooks which have sold over one million copies. Throughout her adult life she has completed many personal and professional development courses, as well as having an interest in health and wellbeing.

Lisa’s first hypnotherapy training was with Rick Collingwood and practiced for many years as a ‘traditional’ hypnotherapist. However, whilst she was the Workshop Coordinator for the AHA (Australian Hypnotherapists Association) in WA, she facilitated a workshop by Gordon Young. It started her on a new path to modern hypnotherapy. Since then she has studied extensively with both Gordon (AICH) and Dr Michael Yapko, who is arguably the best hypnotherapist in the world today and a world leader in the field of depression. She is now fortunate enough to call him her mentor.
