BELDLUZ PAREDES

NLP and Life Coach Trainer Team Leader

I am NLP, Time Line Therapy, Hypnotherapy Trainer.

I have several years of experience in private practice as a practitioner, and my areas of expertise and interest include: depression and other mood issues; anxiety and anxiety disorders and related issues; stress management; relaxation training; adjustment to life challenges, transitions and change; adult survivors of abuse.

Working with all types of Depression and Over Weight issues is a particular area of interest to me and one of my strong points.  I have had much experience in the field of Depression treatments.   Using my experiences in this field has been very rewarding because it gives me the intimate knowledge to deal with the main issue of a person's life and with NLP Therapy it only takes a few sessions to resolve instead of months or years as is in other types of therapy.  I am so excited to be working with and supporting the charity organisation Mind For Life and Mind Over Weight project with MoW team.

We will be able to help the community to overcome this serious issue providing training, such as; Health seminars, Support groups, Individuals Support and other workshops which will focus the awareness in your health around our community

GEMA RUBER

Hypnotherapist NLP Master Practitioner  and Life Coach 

Gema is a qualified NLP Trainer, Clinical Hypnotherapist (Diploma VETAB) and Master Practitioner of Time Line Therapy™. She also had training in NLP life coaching and Rapid Coaching Academy.  She is a clinical member of the Australian Hypnotherapy Association (AHA).

For many years I have worked in various size organizations being exposed to different aspects of the business including marketing, finance and IT.  Even though I was very comfortable I wasn't very happy with my career.  I always felt I could do more and contribute more doing something different.  I embarked on a self-exploration and research journey in which I discovered that my deepest passion is working with people and helping them resolve their life issues.  This was a passion I had and long forgotten about since I was a young girl.  I also realized that I could use my creativity and problems solving skills doing what I am doing now. 
 
My Vision is: A pain free world where humanity reaches its highest inner potential and interconnectedness.
 
My missions: Help people overcome mental and emotional issues and achieve better health and better life by understanding themselves and their mind and utilising their inner resources.

Jay Vee

JOHN VOLONAKIS (JAY VEE)

Personal Trainer

Jay Vee is a health and fitness professional based in Hornsby.  As a father, sports coach and personal trainer, he is passionate about connecting with the local community, to discuss the importance of health and happiness.  Through the Mind Over Weight program, Jay Vee aims to help people achieve their personal health and well-being goals in a safe and supportive environment, where people can be themselves.

Jay Vee’s focus is to help people achieve their health and fitness goals.  His philosophy is simple “I believe in creating lifetime changes. In order to do that, you must first develop a strong mindset, which will help create a strong body” says Jay Vee.  Drawing strength from his own life experiences, Jay Vee uses EFT (tapping therapy) to complement his physical training techniques, and has achieved powerful results.  He dispels the myths of fad and low carb diets, and teaches people how to increase their metabolism and become a fat burning machine.  Combining healthy eating with weights and high metabolic training techniques, Jay Vee shows his clients how to transform themselves into lean, strong, and happy individuals.  Jay Vee works with people of all ages, all body types and he has helped many people transform themselves, both inside and out.

When Mathew from North Ryde first met Jay Vee, he was in his early 30’s and he weighed over 140 kg.  In his time with Jay Vee, Mat dropped over 40kg, not to mention huge improvements in his strength, body shape, and new mindset which has given him the confidence to pursue whatever he chooses.  Mat says this has made a huge impact on his life, it has made him a “fit, confident and trim young man”.

Jay Vee’s personal background is as a sportsman (mainly football) but then injuries led to a change in direction and he took up natural body building.  Like most people he read magazines, books, and listened to all the media hype of how he should train and what he should eat.  It wasn’t until he enlisted the help of his coach who showed him how to achieve the best training results.
