Let it go and live your potential

Everything we do at Bayside Healthy Living is to empower people to be the best version of themselves.

We believe that everyone deserves to live the life they desire, and that past experiences, unconscious beliefs and blocks can get in the way of people being who they want to be.

Let us guide and support you to realise the healthier, happier version of yourself and to achieve more meaningful life connections along the way.


If we could switch off the unconscious blocks that prevent us from being our best selves, we would, right?

Sometimes we need a little assistance to go to the place deep within to eliminate the obstacles that hold us back and ‘re-set’ the mind and body to healthier and happier defaults. 

That’s why we use a tailored approach and are here to support you every step of the way.

Healthier Living

Enhance sleep, calm your mind and reduce pain.

Habits & Addictions

Nobody intentionally sabotages their life.

Anxiety, Fear, Phobias & PTSD

Are fears and debilitating emotions holding you back?

Confidence & Self Esteem

Imagine what your life would be like if you had the confidence to be the best version of yourself.

Sexual Confidence & Wellbeing

Have cancer and health challenges robbed you of intimacy and sexual confidence?

Blocks that hold you back

Are past experiences, unconscious beliefs and blocks getting in the way of who you want to be?


When going through challenging times in our lives, it’s natural for the brain to default to fear-based emotions such as overwhelming sadness, anger, frustration, shame, guilt, and despair, to name a few. When you are clearer about what you are searching for, we can guide and connect you to your ‘WHY’ factor as we offer supportive programs that are tailored to your individual needs.

We use an individualised ‘custom-made’ approach because we understand that every person’s past is unique. Our programs assist you to recognise and eliminate the personal triggers that hold you back (especially the ones that you are not consciously aware of) and will give you back the power to create the future that you truly desire. We draw on a range of therapies to support you as you discover your ‘HOW’ … and it is much easier than you think!

‘HOW’ therapies include:


Dr Amanda Hordern is an expert at supporting you to find your WHY, even if you have never had it before.

When you are clear about your WHY factor, your “what’s in it for me” reason to make the lifestyle changes you’re wanting to make, Dr Amanda will assist you to embrace your HOW… and it’s much easier than you think!


Complimentary phone consultation

Before attending the Clinic, we offer a complimentary no-obligation phone consultation. We answer your questions about the change you desire and identify which of the Bayside Healthy Living individualised programs suit you best.
We then send an email that summarises the step-by-step process, along with an outline of the fees. We will outline the eligibility to claim through private health funds (if appropriate) or tax claims under ‘professional development’.

Preparing for your visit

Pre-session information and forms (including ‘The Power of Hypnosis’ Mp3 track) will be sent to you via email or post. 
Please commence any ‘pre-session tasks’ (if required), complete the forms prior to your first session, leaving any questions that are not relevant, and bring the forms with you when you attend your first session.
Please listen to the pre-session Mp3 track which explains how the programs work and answers frequently asked questions.

Your first visit

Your therapist will go through your pre-session forms, to gain clarity around your healthy living goals (your WHY factor – your ‘what’s in it for me’ factor), assessing past, unconscious barriers or blocks that have prevented you from successfully achieving this before now.
The development of a personalised program and subjective measures of success are recorded in this pre-session discussion. Your first session includes a long therapy session (that’s why the first session is 2 hours – and goes really fast ).
You will sit in a relaxed chair, with the option of putting up your feet, and relaxing under a comfortable blanket.



We offer a supportive program that is tailored to your individual needs and as such it’s best to contact our Clinic
to get an indication of prices.

Health insurance rebates may apply through Extras cover so check with your provider, and professional development for claims through taxation.
