Viv Adams - Hypnotherapist and Life Coach

As registered professional member of the New Zealand Association of Professional Hypnotherapists (NZAPH) and a Certified Hypnotherapist with the International Medical and Dental Hypnotherapy Association (IMDHA), Viv must meet the highest industry standards and practices for both. 

Viv regularly works alongside other health and wellness providers to give additional support to their journey to achieve independence and manage their physical and mental health.

“My work as a hypnotherapist and life coach began with my personal journey back from concussion and chronic pain. When workplace injuries meant I couldn’t return to my job in hospitality, I hit a wall of stuck. Fortunately, tuning into Kiwi can-do energy, I discovered lifestyle health coaching and hypnotherapy.“I realised my lived experience of using this self-liberating proactive and coactive process in my own rehabilitation is valuable learning I can share with people who are dealing with similar life shocks. “With the formal training I have completed and ongoing study, I get to help others overcome physical and mental limitations providing a pathway to real and transformative change via my own business ‘Empowering Minds for Life’.”

How Empowering Minds for Life works

Rather than channelling clients into a repeatable treatment model that is dependent on the therapist, as a Certified health coach, life coach and qualified hypnotherapist, Viv takes the approach of providing individuals with what they need to connect their unconscious and conscious mind and self-manage their own process in becoming their best selves.

“I offer a collaborative partnership, where we both bring 100% commitment to you achieving your desired health and wellness outcomes. As a Health and Mind Coach I also can help you lift your self-esteem, boost your self-confidence, manage chronic conditions, get unstuck from limiting beliefs, kick phobias, cigarettes, vaping and addictions into touch, manage negative stress, and break free from the fat/thin thinking loop.”
