Marilyn had been practising hypnotherapy for almost 30 years. She trained on the Central Coast in 1985 and went on to train at the NSW school of Hypnotic Sciences in 1986 receiving her Diploma and postgraduate Diploma in Hypnotherapy in 1987.

Together they provided training in Gestalt therapy, Humanistic Psychology and Transpersonal Psychology on the Central Coast. Marilyn developed an eclectic way of working with her clients; integrating Gestalt, dream-work and archetypal imagery into her hypnotherapy practice.

Marilyn was particularly interested in how these elements may illuminate our subconscious. Marilyn had worked with clients from 3 to ninety years old. However her heart was drawn to working with children over the years, and Marilyn was one of the best children’s therapists available. She had created a collection of C.D’s for children aimed at enhancing self-esteem, life skills and literacy skills. Her children’s CD’s are titled: ‘Marilyn’s Magic Monkey World’ and are still available

Kaz Field Anderson

Director of Training, Hypnotherapy Trainer
Dip. C.H, Adv Dip. C.H, Cert. Jungian Dream Analysis, Cert. Dynamic Pain Control, Dip. Life Coach, Dip. Transpersonal Psychotherapy, Dip. Breath Therapy, Specialising in Cancer & Anxiety

Kaz & Marilyn trained together back in the 80’s, first achieving their Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy, then going on to further studies.

After a terminal diagnosis of 4th stage cancer in 1990, and told to ‘get her affairs in order’, Kaz put her knowledge to the test, and had her surgery under self-hypnosis without chemo or radiation to give her body every chance to heal naturally. Daily hypnosis sessions Kaz believes, saved her life. Kaz then became a Cancer Specialist in her private practice.

The recent loss of her beloved Mother ~ Marilyn Newman, has seen her take up the challenge of Director of Training, one which is most heartfelt, as HTA was her Mother’s life’s work. Kaz is determined to make HTA one of the most respected schools in Australia, and deliver our program with love, compassion & the nurturing that her Mother so embodied.
