Lesley Jerman, your Clinical Hypnotherapist at Hypnotherapy on Sunshine Coast grew up in Adelaide, South Australia, but has been living in Queensland for many years, with her family.
Lesley has come from a lengthy and diverse nursing background including general nursing, midwifery and child health, nursing leadership and Indigenous health. After finishing her Psychiatric Training in1991, and then working in mental health for over twenty years, Lesley became a TAFE teacher, teaching aged care and mental health. While working in mental health, she obtained a Certificate in Counselling, and at TAFE she acquired a Diploma of Mental Health and a Certificate iv in Training and Assessment.
She left TAFE in 2012, and after not finding adequate work, took up formal studies in Hypnotherapy, an area she always had a passion for. Through this, she acquired a Diploma of Hypnotherapy and a Diploma of Hypnotherapy Coaching and NLP.
Lesley then opened her first Hypnotherapy practice, “Centre of the Mind,” but found that she really needed to upskill in administration. She enrolled in two mentoring courses to expand her Hypnotherapy Business Skills and a program teaching Smoking Cessation through hypnotherapy.
She then established her now Hypnotherapy practice, called Hypnotherapy on Sunshine Coast, where she works with clients at her Mooloolah Clinic or in Nambour or over the internet. Lesley is also a Justice of the Peace and volunteers for Citizen Advocacy.

I am normally a pretty ‘got it all together’ kind of person but the past year had thrown me. I had moved the country to be with a loved one undergoing treatment. for cancer, been through a relationship break down, started a new job, all at the same time.
When things settled down finally I thought I would feel peace, but instead (and to my surprise) I just felt angry. Very very angry. I was in emotional turmoil and it was eating away at me.
Then I started to spend time with Lesley and put my trust in her processes through hypnotherapy. Lesley took me on a gentle journey through my past. I saw that I have used my anger throughout my life to protect me from strong emotions and feelings of rejection. Through this process, I was able to look beyond the anger in my timeline and find the real positives.
Lesley helped me commit these positives to paper- a tool to use for the future. I use this tool regularly now. It’s kind of a mantra for me when I am dealing with difficult situations and feeling the old anger coming. Thank you so much, Lesley, for taking me on this journey. It will be with me now for life.
I have suffered from depression and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder for many years, and have tried many different approaches to help me with no avail.
When I most needed to make changes in my life Lesley was there, welcoming me. Through coaching and hypnotherapy, I was able to get through my darkest hours, always knowing that someone who really cared about me was there in person or at the end of the phone.
The personal growth and healthy identity that has grown in me, through her help, has been amazing; in fact, I am still growing now and find that every day, something new opens its arms for me. I feel so blessed for experiencing this.
No matter how hard life seems and no matter how bad I am feeling about myself, I am completely and genuinely accepted by Lesley, and I feel so much more assured in her company.
I have known Lesley for over thirty years, and during this time, I really admired her coaching abilities with others, so much so, that I engaged her to help me when I needed changes in my career.
She coached me to build my confidence and to become clear about my goals, and she founded a new positive mindset which I still have today. I was able to shift from being a base level Nurse to a Director of Nursing, on the highest rung of the Nursing hierarchy, in a very short period.
Lesley was always non-judgemental and sincere. She helped me clear my thoughts, apply for a particular position and prepare for the interview until I was so assured that I would get the position, which I easily did, feeling completely confident at the interview.
I had been a smoker for over 30 years and had tried to quit on more than one occasion without success. Smoking was affecting my health, however, I still enjoyed it and was addicted to the habit.
Lesley introduced me to the option of hypnosis and her passion for its effectiveness.
Lesley delved deep into my psyche, identifying strengths and weaknesses regarding my approach to my habit, before building a personalised strategy that she felt would be most effective in aiding me to break my smoking addiction.
It is now six weeks since Lesley performed hypnosis on me, and I am pleased to say that I have no desire to smoke cigarettes.
Thank you Lesley for your professional and passionate support. Your contribution to my life has been invaluable.
I had been experiencing enormous amounts of stress and pain in my life when I started some hypnotherapy sessions with Lesley. For the first time in a long time, I felt relaxed and comfortable during the sessions. Her voice and words were so comforting creating a warm healing environment.
She explained to me how hypnotherapy works and the difference between the conscious and subconscious minds, which made it easy to understand. After each session, I had the benefit of being much more relaxed and in less shoulder pain. This also resulted in me sleeping better which made me in better shape to face each day.
I can thoroughly recommend hypnotherapy with Lesley.
Lesley Jerman has the insight to create a calm, friendly environment where you feel safe and guided by her program. The use of visual techniques to centre yourself and breathing skills enables a more serene, spiritual experience to take place. I would gladly recommend her services to those who are in need to gain some stillness and strength in their daily lives.
I went to Lesley to have hypnotherapy to lose weight. My experience was highly successful with me losing fifteen kilograms within in the period that I had allotted to this challenge. The actual process of the hypnotherapy was very relaxing and enjoyable. I have tried to lose weight by trying different diets and programs in the past, but whenever I lost weight, I very quickly put it on again The hypnotherapy method proved to be the easiest way I have ever tried to lose weight, and this time, I have kept it off.
