Christine Priestly, Clinical Hypnotherapist & Sex and Relationships Counsellor in Byron Bay

Hello! I'm Christine

Clinical Hypnotherapist & Sex and Relationships Counsellor

My priority is helping you make positive changes that last. I hold a safe space for you to explore your blocks and challenges in a new way, while providing practical advice and solutions to move beyond them.

You will feel supported when connecting with your innermost self as we uncover why you have been stuck in the same old patterns.

When you recognise that you are 'stuck', and are ready and willing to examine what has been holding you back, you can comfortably trust in the process and my ability to support you through positive change.

You will leave with the tools to move beyond your blocks and reach your full potential so you can be free to achieve your goals.


My Approach & Values

My goal is to help you let go of old habits and negative thought patterns. I help you explore your blocks and challenges through gentle guidance and questioning. I safely support you to identify and deconstruct what has been holding you in old patterns.

With expertise in relationships, sexology, and emotional health, I draw upon a range of tools including Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy, Mindfulness, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), Parts therapy, Coaching and Counselling to empower you to shift old beliefs and find strategies for lasting change.

Together we will uncover specific goals, responses, thoughts, attitudes, behaviours and feelings. We will resolve the root cause of what has been holding you back, so you can live the life you want.

"I owe this smile to Christine who helped me to manage my inner critic in the run up to Miss Pole Dance Queensland...Before, my stage fright and lack of worthiness was so bad that I struggled to even smile during my routines... After one session with Christine, who gave me a recording to listen to after, I was in a MUCH better place...

Chrissie Jackson, Northern Rivers, NSW

"…I have now been smoke-free for almost three months. I even tried a puff the other day, just to see, and couldn’t finish it. It tasted disgusting. The best part is how easy it’s been. I’m surfing again, focusing on my fitness and feeling great!"

William Drew, Byron Bay

"...It wasn’t long after our session began, even before we started with the actual hypnotherapy, that I could see myself making a change....I’ve continued to stick to the plan we set out together for about 3 months now, and am seeing great improvements in my fitness. Success!"
