My name is Simone Hamilton and I am a Behavioural Change & Trauma Recovery Specialist. In 2011, I established a private therapy practice called Personally Empowered, to help people let go of what's holding them back, and to truly live awesome lives.
Like many therapists, I was drawn to become a therapist after overcoming incredible traumas and challenges over the years. There is not much that I haven't experienced from the 'other side' of the coach, so to speak. I am not only a trained professional, but I can relate to my clients struggles as I truly 'get it'.
Prior to establishing Personally Empowered, I enjoyed a varied and exciting career spanning 30 years in the private and public sectors and therefore, I bring a wealth of professional and personal experiences and insights to my role in helping others. I grew up in Papua New Guinea and I've also lived and worked in various cities in Australia. I have also worked with Indigenous Australians in communities in North East Arnhemland - in some of the remotest parts of Australia.
In 2008 I started the journey of studying and learning in order to be able to help people to overcome and let go of what is holding them back from enjoying life. I studied psychology, human behaviour, completed training in Hypnotherapy, Neuro LInguistic Programming, Child Psychology, Business Facilitation and Life Coaching. I also became qualified in exceptional healing methods and processes such as the Demartini Method and The Richards Trauma Process. I now have a huge 'toolbox' of techniques and methods to help people in my practice overcome challenges.
In 2011, I made the decision to change career direction to follow my dream of having my own therapy practice. I resigned from a very lucrative and enjoyable position in the Public Service to establish my own practice as my desire to help people as a therapist was much stronger than my desire to 'climb the corporate ladder'.
In my role as a Behavioural Change & Trauma Recovery Specialist, I help people overcome conditions and challenges including Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Anxiety, Depression, Self-Harming Behaviours, Phobias, Grief, Bad Habits (Smoking, Alcohol, Gambling, Sugar, Overeating, Emotional Eating, Nail Biting, etc) and more. I also help children and teenagers with Autism Spectrum Disorders to manage problematic behaviours. I also support adults to manage challenges from conditions such as ADHD and Autism Spectrum Disorders and maximise the gifts of these conditions.
Clients want to work with me because of the safe and trusting environment I provide. With the experience and learnings of the hardest lessons and greatest successes in my own life, combined with extensive training in human behaviour and psychology, I am able to relate easily to clients and support them in overcoming challenges. I truly care about my clients and I am passionate about helping people enjoy happy and fulfilling lives.
I provide personalised one-on-one Programs that break unwanted habits (such as smoking, alcohol); overcome anxiety and phobias; achieve lasting weight loss results; and increase a person’s confidence, self-esteem and sense of direction.
I also love helping children and teenagers who have anxiety or self-esteem issues, to feel confident and be able to enjoy school and making friends.
