About Wellnessa

Hello and welcome to my website.

My name is Vanessa Campbell, or as I have affectionately become known – Wellnessa; and I am deeply passionate about helping people.

Over the years I have studied many courses in complementary therapies, energy, healing and metaphysics.

Like many who look for alternative approaches to healing and life I have come from a place of need: needing to know how I can heal, needing to know who I am, and needing to know what is life about. I’m not sure I have found all the answers to these questions (I’m still searching) but I have gathered a large amount of information which has led me to a career change from the corporate world to a career centred upon the intention of helping others navigate their own lives and investigate what may be right from them.

I work from a place of non-judgement and non-attachment.

I am a highly sensitive person.

I loathe bullies.

Primarily I would describe myself as a counsellor / psychotherapist, hypnotherapist, holistic medicine practitioner, business and personal mentor, numerologist.  (Please see the FAQ page which outlines other areas of my study).

If you think I may be of help, please make contact.

In light and peace,

I did feel that I instinctively trusted her; I felt at ease, safe & protected.  I felt her genuine want to help me.

Bullying or Toxic Workplace?

Corporate Cleanse

When you have had enough of the bullies and toxic workplaces.

In 2018 turning up and surviving the gruelling and often relentless demands of work can be very taxing and start to affect your overall enjoyment of life.

Sometimes the workplace environment is so hostile and uncomfortable that it begins to negatively impact on your health and wellbeing.

Here are some signs that a toxic workplace is impacting on you:

  • Your stomach drops every morning when the alarm goes off
  • You wrestle to get to sleep as you replay the complete ridiculousness of the day’s events
  • You constantly feel on edge and your thoughts are consumed by work
  • You second guess yourself
  • You spend more time obsessively thinking about internal politics than the work
  • Your mindset is negative and everything is a chore
  • Miserable best describes you
  • Feel exhausted, unable to be your authentic self as you need to ‘fake’ it to fit in
  • You are becoming avoidant in normal day to day activities – can’t be bothered
  • You feel drained and nothing seems to reenergise you
  • You are living in excess in other areas – eating, drinking, shopping, gambling etc
  • Other areas of your life are suffering – family, friends, hobbies and generally you are not taking care of yourself

Acknowledge that most organisations have a HR / People & Culture unit to raise any concerns with as well as often offering external free employee assistance support but this can be of little help if the issue is the workplace itself as these are part of the internal system.  Legally if things are of a serious nature and there is evidence of bullying and / or harassment you have the option to lodge workers compensation claim but is that the best way to go?

Perhaps you begin to think…….

How can I get through this without damaging my career, reputation or losing my job?

Where can I go? What can I do?  Who can I talk to? How can I improve the situation?  How can I take control? When will I be able to feel better? When will I be able to sleep through the night again? Surely there is something out there that can help me?


Perhaps consider taking an Energetic Corporate Cleanse?

What is that?

An Energetic Corporate Cleanse comprises of:

5 x 1 hour sessions providing:

  1. Meet, greet and overview of the situation & holistic medicine assessment with recommendations for supporting natural medicines that are :
  • Completely safe & without side-effects – Non-toxic
  • Assist the body to heal itself – Non-habit forming
  • Encourage the body to function at its optimum (not just be symptom free)
  • Improve health & well-being
  • Can be taken with any other medication
  1. Numerology reading to provide you with insight and possibilities
  2. Hypnotherapy session to relax and calm you
  3. Reiki to rebalance your mind, body and spirit
  4. Mentoring to help you navigate your way forward

Research indicates that there is very little practical and holistic assistance and support available for people suffering from bullies and toxic work environments.

I have worked in corporate environments in Human Resources, Wellbeing, WHS, Injury Management and Workers Compensation – managing large numbers of psychological workplace and non work related injuries / illness and successfully managed the majority of them to deliver good outcomes. Personally, I have been bullied, harassed (mentally, physically and sexually) at work and I have sadly worked in some highly toxic businesses all of which gives me a depth of understanding.

Admittedly many people may not be aware of energy healing and the benefits.

I am a mature and experienced practitioner with proven successful results in helping people get themselves destressed, rebalanced, and back on track. This in turn assists in making you better able to cope with the current workplace / situation which also gives you the opportunity to be in a place where you are able to make informed decisions for the future in your best interest.

All enquiries  are treated in confidence.

How can hypnotherapy help?

Much modern day mental and emotional distress and even some physical illness can be traced to underlying anxiety, tension and stress arising out of an imbalance between our cognitive or conscious beliefs and desires, and the beliefs and desires we hold below conscious awareness in the sub-conscious mind.

Modern Clinical Hypnotherapy is a powerful form of Psychotherapy combining cognitive therapeutic counselling techniques with subconscious healing techniques.

What does a hypnotherapist do?

Being hypnotised feels just like being very relaxed. Clinical hypnotherapists will simply assist you to become so deeply relaxed that, with a little guidance, you can begin to make the changes you want to make to your automatic behaviours and/or emotional reactions so they become positive for you instead of negative.

Clinical Hypnotherapy can assist you to come into conscious awareness of your sub-conscious beliefs and desires and thus enables you to begin to understand and redress any imbalance between the two, resulting in reduced feelings of stress and anxiety and increased feelings of calmness and positive energy.

Clinical Hypnotherapy has been used widely and successfully for many years in Australia and overseas for the relief of a number of problems and conditions.

Benefits of Hypnotherapy

Well known in the community as being effective for giving up smoking and for weight management, Clinical Hypnotherapy is also powerful in many areas of life in which people experience symptoms of pain, stress, anxiety and tension – some examples are listed below:

  • Reduce anxiety and depression
  • Post traumatic stress
  • Pain management
  • Stop smoking
  • Weight loss
  • Fears and phobias
  • Stress management
  • Improved memory
  • Addictions
  • Sporting performance
  • Academic performance
  • Exam nerves
  • Performance anxiety
  • Gaining self-confidence
  • Improving motivation
  • Overcoming grief
  • Overcoming insomnia
  • Nail biting
  • Bed wetting

Gaining permanent, positive outcomes from Clinical Hypnotherapy can take anywhere from one or two sessions or more depending upon the complexity of the problem and the nature of the underlying subconscious beliefs that are causing or contributing to the problem.  Call today to discuss how hypnotherapy can assist you transform your life…. Pain Free, Drug Free, and Stress Free.  

In simple terms, hypnosis is a state of deep relaxation. It is an altered state where the analytical or critical part of our mind is bypassed, allowing access to the subconscious mind, our personal memory vault for everything we’ve experienced.

When something happens to us, we remember it and learn a particular behaviour in response to what happened. Each time something similar happens, our physical and emotional reactions attached to the memory are repeated. In some cases these reactions are unhealthy. I will guide you to remember the event that led to the first reaction, separate the memory from the learned behaviour, and replace unhealthy behaviours with new, healthier ones. Simple? Yes!!!! but very effective.

Clinical hypnotherapy is a natural, non-invasive, drug free solution to many problems, and can often help to supplement traditional treatments for a variety of conditions.

Feedback from a Hypnotherapy Client

Hypnotherapy has created a massive positive change in me and my life.


Life & Business

What is mentoring?

Mentoring is a powerful process that supports people in realising their true potential and in making changes in their life.

How does mentoring work?

Mentoring is a very effective collaboration between you and your mentor. The relationship is non-judgemental and is unconditional.  It is purely to support you to achieve. It takes place via conversation however it is very different from a personal  or social conversation. It is dynamic, focused and designed to move you forward in your life. Mentoring raises your awareness and encourages you take control of, and responsibility of your life.

Consider this for a moment…..you are the sum total of all the decisions that you have ever made in your life to date. Very true for us all. Now take a moment to answer these questions….

  • How are you living your life?
  • Are you living and enjoying every moment?
  • Are you just going through the motions?
  • Do you keep telling yourself one day you will really start?

The important thing is to ask yourself HOW you WANT to live your life and to what extent is that happening for you right now. If the answer to the second part is ‘not enough’ then if you WANT different, you need to DO different, a mentor can help you with this by working with you to :

  • Work out where you are in your life
  • Decide where you would rather be
  • Open yourself to new ways of thinking
  • Learn to close the gap

The mentoring experience

It can be a wonderful experience to be mentored and feel the support and encouragement of another person who believes in your ability to achieve. My goal when I mentor is to impart the process and have a portable skill so in the future you can mentor yourself through any changes you may want to make, personal or professional or because of any other external circumstance.

Beneficial skills learnt through mentoring include

  • Learn to listen to your inner self
  • Ask yourself powerful and relevant questions
  • Gain clarity about what REALLY matters to you
  • Stop procrastinating
  • Planning and taking steps
  • Keeping focused on plans and their timeframes until you succeed
  • Approaching challenges from different / new perspectives
  • Not allowing problems / challenges to be an excuse to give up
  • Able to successfully mentor others

How does mentoring differ from counselling or therapy?

Mentoring is not a type of counselling or therapy. These specialised interventions deal with not only the current issue the client is facing but also with their past, where there can be unresolved issues that still affect the individual. If we become aware throughout a mentoring session that you would benefit from counselling or any other therapy I will raise this with you to consider and provide a referral if and when appropriate or possible.

What can a mentor help me with?

Mentors utilise techniques to help their clients in all aspects of life. If you’ve ever struggled with something – whether it be sticking to a diet, learning a language, moving out of your comfort zone, standing up for yourself at work, then being mentored could be for you.

A mentor approaches things pragmatically. Through questions and exercises, I will try to get a good idea of how you look at the world. From this I will be able to identify the most effective route to your goal. Everyone is different, some people embrace change and new ideas, so may move quickly and easily whereas others work on chunking down a goal into small steps as change seems daunting. When working with HSPs I ensure that all their specific sensitivities are supported. I take an individual approach with all clients without judgement.

*Love life – Do you wish you had the confidence to approach someone you have your eye on? Do you struggle with commitment? Are you struggling to cope with a divorce? Whatever the problem, a life mentor could help you to understand your love-life and work towards improving it.

*Business life – Starting and running a business is challenging work. Sometimes we get so absorbed in hard work we neglect ourselves. Mentors can help with confidence, leadership, decision-making and work/life balance.

*Personal life – Do you feel like you’re not making the most of life? There’s so much to see, do and learn in this world, but often a lack of confidence, time and will-power can cause us to stay inside not doing anything. Mentors use specialist skills to motivate their clients to do the things they want to do, so they can overcome habitual procrastination.

*Performance – Improvement is at the core of mentoring. Whatever your skills, mentoring could help improve it. Whether you’re a student, an athlete, an artist, a writer, a performer, or a musician – adopting specialist techniques will help you to push your limitations and exceed expectations.

What areas have I mentored in?

Business mentoring includes retail, hairdressing, beautician, medical, legal, trucking, catering, natural therapies, transport, café, restaurants, clothing, entertainment industry.

Life mentoring has helped people…… thrive, improve their wellbeing, improve confidence and self esteem, become happier, become more resilient, find a career they loved, set clear goals, form better relationships, work though separation / divorce,  new cycles in life – retirement, empty nest, new parent, work on things they are passionate about (hobbies)  and have more meaning to their lives
