At MYLP, we believe there is a better way to live our lives especially if there is trauma, hurt, not only to ourselves, but possibly to those we love. Hypnotherapy is a more valuable, less invasive way where customers take control of their lives, quickly and efficiently, knowing they are being provided with ongoing support.
We're obsessively passionate about helping, and our mission is to help people achieve their goals and be free from bad habits such as smoking, weight problems, emotional problems such as stress, anxiety, depression, PTSD and so many others.
To benefit the client, we focus on natural solutions with Hypnotherapy, NLP, Time Line Therapy, The Richards Trauma Process and other therapies.
Hypnotherapy is one of the least understood aspects of health outcomes, and we see that as an opportunity. We're excited to simplify hypnotherapy for everyone providing education, solutions and support.

Maureen Hamilton Hypnotherapist

Our founding

MYLP was founded by Maureen Hamilton in 2010. While health has always been her focus Maureen did take a break from it for several years after losing her husband to smoking at the young age of 47. Her ambition was to own and operate a computer training centre in the heart of Brisbane and was successful.

After 3 years it all came to an end when a water cooler burst 2 floors above and everything came crashing down. After a year of going back to IT working as a contractor, Maureen longed to be back helping people with their health.

Determined to help other people take control of their lives with smoking and their weight, Maureen then turned to research looking for ways in which this could be done successfully.


Maureen Hamilton is a published author, speaker; hypnotherapist and assists people to remove bad habits such as smoking and eating. Maureen's practice has evolved to assit people with anxiety, depression, panic attacks, trauma, addictions and so much more, utilizing her exceptional skills as a Hypnotherapist, Time Line Therapy and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) Master Practitioner. The Richards Trauma Process (TRTP) is an exceptional process allowing people with anxiety, depression, PTSD and other emotional issues achieve a calm and peaceful lives.

Maureen has previously worked in many areas of health in Australia as well as overseas. Her health background includes training in general and midwifery nursing, mental health and children’s behavioural issues (including the effects of emotional trauma especially in children).

Maureen is very much involved in promoting and assisting people to obtain optimal health and is absolutely committed to helping people become non-smokers, lose weight, resolve emotional issues and live a fulfilling life.

Quit Smoking Hypnosis

Life Coach to Quit Smoking was launched in May 2010.
In 2010 the government introduced 25% tax on cigarettes so many people knew it was time to quit. Hypnosis was an unknown science according to many professionals. This made it challenging to build the business. Fortunately with the help of my coach with marketing, I was able to get the message out. It wasn’t easy but with determination, clients started coming in. They were staggered by the fact that it was only one session and they were given a Lifetime Guarantee. If they ever smoked again they could come back and there would be no further charge.
This Lifetime Guarantee still applies to this day.

With the assistance of a client who had fabulous skills with systems, MYLP was developed to incorporate the Quit Smoking and other programs being introduced.

Lose Weight with Hypnosis

Weight Loss Hypnosis

In 2012 it became apparent that clients often coming in to quit smoking also had weight problems. It was decided to expand the business so they could be helped.

After many years of yoyo dieting and struggling with her weight problem, Maureen decided it was timely to venture into this area. Going through the Hypnosis Weight Loss program herself and (the one currently being used), Maureen did lose weight and has maintained her goal weight ever since.
While there are 6 sessions, only 3 sessions are recommended unless a person is quite obese or are hanging onto their weight due to emotional problems.
There is an option for the Virtual Gastric Band which requires a 4th session. However with the structure of the program, this is rarely required.

The most important message is that this program is not a diet – it is a lifestyle change.

The Richards Trauma Process (TRTP)

In 2012 more clients were coming in with emotional problems. Sometimes these were with people who were smokers and needed help before they could quit. Other times it was people who were being challenged by their weight. With Hypnosis, NLP and Time Line Therapy, people were able to address their trauma and hurt which often resulted in anger, sadness, fear, guilt, hurt etc. Then they could move on with their quit smoking and/or weight loss program/s.

In 2014, TRTP was introduced proving to be a gentle and simple process helping people with emotional challenges

TRTP provides a very powerful way of addressing major trauma, PTSD, anxiety and depression. It resolves these issues quickly, effectively and very safely.


Nicole Hamilton

Our Team

Joyner Health Centre was a successful health centre from 2012 until May 2018. During this time the centre was shared with a variety of therapist including massage therapists, chiropractors and Counsellors. In 2014 we required a new receptionist and Nicole Hamilton stepped into the role. Nicole has excellent verbal communication skills with active listening and great customer service skills. This role extended to accounts and other administrative duties. Nicole is an integral and essential part of the MYLP team.

A new leaf

In May 2018 we moved the practice from Joyner Health Centre located at Joyner to Master Your Life Power at Bald Hills. 
With our broader marketing efforts in full swing, we are not only focused on continuing to assist people, we are also focused on education and creating a greater awareness of the power of hypnosis. We are achieving this with speaking to medical people at their practices, providing talks to relevant groups and people especially those who have been hurt during their lives.
We are looking forward to seeing a greater acceptance of hypnosis to assist people to live extraordinary lives. TRTP is normally only 3 sessions with ongoing support.
