Completely changed my outlook on life

“Mark, Linda and team have mastered the art of bringing peace to those lost in this frantic lifestyle we seem to get stuck in. I can now clearly see the way for my healthy future. I wake up feeling like I can face the day with more energy and nothing weighing on my mind. Thank you for the chance to experience deep meditation and real hypnotherapy.” Adele January, 2023

BEST decision I have ever made

“I am 77 years old and have attended Swami Sarasvati, Sahaja for Yoga, The Buddhist Retreat in Wollongong, Hopewood, Vajrayana Institute and many more, BUT you transformed my mind and set me free. The retreat was just what I needed to get over the tragic loss of my terrific husband of 57 years. Your love and devotion to each of your clients was exceptional. I intend repeating this every year.” Patricia January 2023

FROM 310kg TO 103kg

“When I finally went to Little Forest to do a retreat with Mark it was like I had found Shangri-La. The place is amazing. The moment you arrive you feel the stress leaving you. By getting my mindset right everything else fell into place. My biggest lesson was to prioritise my life, my health and my fitness. If you are able to, get along to one of Mark’s retreats or seminars. Do it, you won’t look back.”

- Jordan Tirekidis

What’s the cost?

How much is not taking action costing you?  How much time have you spent not getting the results you want? How much have you already spent trying to fix the problem? Doing the same old thing over and over again has likely cost you a great deal already, hasn’t it?

From medication to meditation


Read what these four Doctors have said about Mark’s hypnosis methods.

“I am still amazed every day by the results.” Dr Karen Richardson GP  “This Is a simple, inexpensive prescription any of us can follow. I firmly believe the techniques described by Mark should be taught to all high school students.” Dr Katherine Willis-Sullivan MD “I’m your client Kristalee’s GP.  She has been doing hypnosis through your app.  I’m writing in to thank you for all she’s achieved in this short period since. Krystalee has started meditating and thus medicating less. I’ve been recommending ”Mind Free” to other patients that could benefit.”  Dr Arti Vaid  “Your Think Slim program is a major advance in the treatment of obesity.” Dr Neil Peace MD
