Our First Level 1 Class in Penrith

The course provides a good and thorough explanation of the workings of the mind and the effective method to help address subconsciously stored issues which may be impacting the physical/mental health and well-being of people.

I am personally benefiting from being supported to deal with a deeply ingrained event/reaction which was negatively impacting my current life. I hope to benefit others similarly. (GA - Penrith)

By learning different hypnosis procedures and formulating proper suggestions guided by the suggestibility questionnaire, I will achieve great results helping others. (VD - Penrith)

I’ve learnt the depth and transformative influence hypnosis can have on someone’s life and soul. I’d never experienced hypnosis before and now, having experienced it for myself and witness to others, it’s beautifully magical. I can see, think and feel the hypnotic process helping myself and my clients to a healthier state of being, quicker. It excites me and feels right in my soul and being. (JP - Penrith)



Vimla Rao
Professional Member of AHA
Senior Associate Member of ASCH
Senior Executive Member of IICT

VImla Rao is a very friendly and enthusiastic therapist and instructor, practicing various modalities in order to give a vibrant life-style to all those who seek help.

Vimla was born and brought up in Fiji but, in 1985, chose to make Australia her home. She had been employed at various universities as a physics technical officer until 2003 when her thirst for working in the health care industry led her to the role of Home Care worker during which time she built an amazing rapport with her elderly, sick and disabled clients. Her passion led her to the Bowen Therapy world when, in 2005, she completed her Diploma of Bowen Therapy and started on her new journey of helping clients through their various physical and emotional ailments. She pursued this career further and, by 2010, became an international instructor of Bowen Therapy, teaching in Australia, Fiji, India and Pakistan.

While on the path of healing, Vimla realised that there was a subtle aspect beyond the physical and the emotional. Her search lead her to Dr Yogesh Choudhary, the founder and Director of the Indian Institute of Hypnotherapy, where she mastered Clinical as well as Spiritual Hypnotherapy. Under Dr Yogesh Choudhary’s Guidance, Vimla learned about talking to the organs and systems of the Body as well as treating clients with issues due to the presence of spirit in their vicinity.

Vimla now runs a very successful clinic and helps people at various levels according to their individual needs. She practices Clinical Hypnotherapy, Spiritual Hypnotherapy, NLP and Bowen Therapy and is able to bring all her knowledge gained over the years into her work as an instructor for AusHealth College of Hypnotherapy. 

Vimla’s message to mankind is:

“Help yourself live a vibrant life to keep yourself and all in your contact happy with total fulfillment, contentment and inner peace".
