Practitioner of the Month


Leanne Pillay in the Spotlight!

My name is Leanne Pillay and I am extremely passionate about how the mind works and how if you can change your mind set you can change your reality and it is Hypnotherapy that allows me to live this passion.

My desire to help people, to inspire others, create an impact, motivate people to become the very best versions of themselves urged me to pursue a career as a Hypnosis Practitioner. During my own challenging times, the realization dawned that to change the world, I had to change myself first. This sparked my journey of self-discovery and personal development.

My interest in hypnotherapy sparked from my interest in past lives and after studying at SAMHA I learnt that there is so much to this amazing tool. You can use it for anything. I usually work with any issue although I must be honest my favorite areas are working with children as I find hypnotherapy the most exciting and easiest way to make changes to their lives. My other favorite is past life regression therapy as this is something close to my heart and also started my journey in exploring the subconscious mind and its infinite power.

I am also a Master transformational life coach and it is in this modality as well that when changes are made in the subconscious mind, your reality changes. I live in Durban with my Husband and 6 year old daughter and my hypnotherapy and coaching practice is based in Durban north.




With more and more people becoming aware and turning to alternative medicines and treatments, Hypnosis is fast becoming a Key Factor in helping people in their day-to-day lives. Science now recognizes Hypnosis. Professors Posner and Amir Raz (USA) released scientific research factors features in the New York Times 2005.  The misconceptions created by stage shows, cultures, beliefs and an uninformed public have created a Fear Factor that has prevented many people from using the healing power available from Hypnosis.  A visit to our professional centre, will not only provide you with a very enjoyable, relaxing 60 – 90 minute session, but also give you an informed insight into what treatments and techniques would best suit your needs.  The total confidentiality creates a trust factor between Client and Therapist that enables the Client to feel safe, secure and motivated to achieve a positive result.  At our Treatment Centre, total professionalism combined with modern day techniques and research provides you with an opportunity to improve your Lifestyle.
