Benjamin is also a lived experienced practitioner and has been working as a certified Coaching Professional, NLP Practitioner & Hypnotherapist who specialises in helping people cope with their issues. He coaches his clients in a way that utilises both their heads and their hearts. Benjamin first learned about NLP when he hit a roadblock in his own life and was struggling to move past it. The techniques he developed were so successful that friends and family began asking him for help with their own challenges. This motivated Benjamin to turn his newfound passion into a full-time career. Benjamin has experience in working with youth, addictions, life direction, changing habitual behaviours, burnout, stress & anxiety.

Benjamin & Katie decided to team up and turned their passion of helping others, creating The Hope Centre - Perth, for our clients to feel safe and comfortable knowing that they will always have support with us.

We are proud Western Australian family run business.
