The doctor made me feel comfortable with everything he explained to me

5 50 Gastroenterologist Consultation

His staff were excellent at answering any questions even before I made my appointment. Dr Braun made me feel comfortable with everything he explained to me.

I wanted a skilled surgeon and he nailed it

5 50 Gastric Bypass

Saw Dr. Braun for a mini gastric bypass with minimiser ring. I have lost 90kg in 9 months. He is European heritage so seems very blunt, but I didn't want a warm and fluffy buddy, I wanted a skilled surgeon that could do my surgery safely and confidently. He nailed it. The more I see him and his team, the warmer and fluffier he gets. The 12-month support program is a pleasure to deal with all of my food issues to ensure I get the most out of my surgery. Would definitely recommend Dr. Braun to others.

I ended up having to have surgery to remove my gall bladder

4 50 Gallbladder Removal

I suffered from severe gall bladder inflammation and took myself to Holy Spirit Northside Private Emergency. I was subsequently admitted to Holy Spirit Northside with a severe inflammation of my gall bladder. I was placed in Dr Will Braun's care.

I ended up having to have surgery to remove my gall bladder.

I was not able to see Dr Braun before surgery, which was some 12 hours after admission.
I met Dr Braun immediately prior to surgery and we talked through my diagnosis, treatment options and risks, I felt comfortable to go ahead with the surgery.
Dr Braun saw me this morning after my surgery last night, he told me what happened and answered my questions.

I reckon he's a good surgeon and a good guy. I'd see him again if I needed surgery.

Clinical Hypnotherapy is remarkably effective for many issues including: smoking cessation, weight management, establishing healthy habits, chronic pain, grief, anxiety, depression, trauma, social anxiety, unwanted habits, fears and phobias, confidence, immune support, addictions and literally thousands of other areas of need. Clinical Hypnotherapy sessions provide you with a soft, safe, gentle, confidential and supportive space to access therapy, so that you can achieve the profound, life changing results that you deserve.

Clinical Hypnotherapy is a gentle and safe therapy that works on strengthening positive neural pathways in the subconscious mind by harnessing the power of your brain's neuroplasticity.

Hypnotherapy works on the "Synaptic Pruning" of unwanted neural pathways in your brain no longer serving you which helps to release any automatic negative or limiting thought patterns, so we can then rewire in new, healthy, desired neural pathways, all by simply changing your thought patterns. This process effectively rewires your mind to function the way that you want it to.

Hypnotherapy is very effective for countless issues including: healthy lifestyle habits, weight management, smoking cessation, chronic pain, habits, fears and phobias, grief and loss, anxiety and depression, relaxation, confidence, OCD and can even assist with relaxing the symptoms of certain medical conditions such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, and so much more.

Fern will then gently guide you through the relaxing and empowering therapeutic process to create and engineer new neural pathways in your brain according to your goals, and we then define and strengthen this new neurology, so that your new, desired emotions, thoughts and behaviours become automatic.

Unresolved issues can unnecessarily hold people back from finding their happiness, from being their best selves and from finding the sunshine in their hearts, so Fern gently and warmly guide clients to a place of self-awareness, self-compassion, self-love, self-healing and self-connectedness in order to have closure and find peace with unmet needs or unresolved issues that may be holding them back from living the life they dream of.

Fern provides warm, personalised, client centred therapy sessions that are a balanced blend of heart based and science-based therapy. Sessions are personally tailored and meticulously designed to help you achieve the very best results that you are so deserving of, and lead a calm, balanced and connected life that warmly empowers clients to break through, heal, make effective and lasting changes and transform their lives.
