Renato is an eclectic Clinical Hypnotherapist and an inspiring Life Coach who loves facilitating peoples’ inner journeys. With an innate talent for catalysing self-awareness, healing and personal growth, he is on a mission to “maximise the quality of life and harmony by facilitating self-discovery and unobstructed self-expression”.
He offers a collaborative, experiential and mindfulness-based approach focused on people’s values, strengths, skills toward solutions, emotional release and breakthrough insights from bridging the conscious and unconscious mind, rather than extensive analysis of the past.
Combining hypnotherapy and coaching with a range of disciplines, he incorporates timeline-based therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive-Behavioural Hypnotherapy, NLP (Neuro-linguistic Programming), ESI (Executive State Identification), Systems Thinking and others, adapting as needed to suit each client’s unique path to wellbeing.
Renato sees everyone holistically and thrives on helping people to bring the various fragmented, scattered and often conflicting parts of themselves and their lives together into “one” integrated, functional, vibrant, authentic and harmonious life.
He is particularly skilled in helping people suffering from stress, anxiety and related conditions triggered or aggravated by stress; people going through or anticipating challenging life transitions; disconnected from their values or lacking a sense of direction; overwhelmed by anger, fear, guilt, hurt or other emotional blocks and unhelpful thoughts; struggling with career, parenting or challenging relationships as well as clients willing to get into healthier habits and lifestyle.
His experience with organisational teams, high-pressure project environments and life transitions offer him insightful, practical and results-driven perspectives to help clients sustain balance and apply the learnings in their lives outside the therapy room.
Whether you need healing, getting unstuck or stepping up your game, he can help you to transcend the limits of your conscious mind to create a fuller life aligned with your values.
