Shona Blackthorn is a professional Australian Certified Hypnotherapist, Owner and Principal of "Southern Hypnotherapy" a business based in Kayena near Launceston in Tasmania, Australia.


Shona believes that we all have hidden, innate potential that is all too often overridden by the pressures, trials and tribulations of everyday life. The secret to unlocking this potential is to take back CONTROL over your thoughts and feelings in order to manifest what you truly want. Accessing the subconscious mind is a powerful way to do this. 


Clinical Hypnotherapy is a very quick, simple and non-threatening way to access your subconscious mind and change your life in positive ways. 


Have you ever tried - unsuccessfully - to make and sustain positive changes in your life?  

You will not be able to make and maintain many of the positive changes you truly want in your life without engaging your SUBCONSCIOUS MIND.  Hypnotherapy is the most effective way to do just that. 


Hypnotherapy can assist with a wide range of mental, emotional and physical issues and problems, but Shona Blackthorn specializes in:


  • Weight Loss

  • Stop smoking

  • Stress & Depression

  • Fibromyalgia and Pain Management

  • Improving self-esteem and self-confidence

  • Overcoming phobias and addictions

  • Helping people live more positive, happier and stress-free lives.                                                              


Shona is WWC Certified and is experienced in working with children and adults of all ages. She is committed to helping people to overcome limitations, obstacles and problems and improve their lives.
