Some frequently asked questions...
Is it very expensive?
My Personal Breakthrough experience is designed to give you all the experience and tools you need to overcome any challenge in your life. In other words at the end of your 16 hour process you will not need any further coaching. There is no other life coaching program that offers this total empowerment – it is absolutely invaluable. I charge R720 per hour for this intensive one-on-one process and I assure you that you will find that it is an excellent price in terms of the value that you will get from this experience.
If, however, you have a very specific issue that you would like to work on (for example recovering from grief, or a specific relationship issue, or how to deal with an ADHD child, etc.) then you may not need the entire Breakthrough, and I may be able to assist you with just 2 or 3 sessions. We will be able to establish this in your first consultation.
I also work with couples on relationship issues and family dynamics, and with groups who would like to work on similar issues (for example a group of moms who would all like to clear out their parenting guilt). For couple and group sessions I charge R850 per hour which you can then split amongst the group.
What if I can’t afford it right now?
I realise that both parents and teachers are often financially stretched. Most people when pushed to spend money on themselves will say that they can't afford it. The question really is can you afford not to do it? The shifts and breakthroughs that my clients have are absolutely invaluable and affect every area of their lives, including their financial status. This is not about spending money on yourself, but rather about investing in yourself and your future and the future of your family.
I offer a discounted amount for an upfront payment and I'm open to discussing other options that would make it more manageable for you, such as shorter sessions or coming monthly rather than weekly.
You can also find a friend, partner or group who would all like to work on similar issues and make use of my group rates.
I can also highly recommend the workshops that I run, as you will get a lot of what is offered in coaching on our workshop days.
Is it very time consuming?
My Personal Breakthrough program is a total of about 16 hours – that is only 2 working days out of your entire life and it will completely transform your future, giving you more time and energy to do the things you love. Make a deal with your boss, find a babysitter, or do whatever you need to do to give yourself this incredible gift. I assure you that your entire family will benefit from the changes that you will make over these 16 hours.
If you are not able to commit to 2 hours weekly for 6-8 weeks, you can always look at one of my individualised packages, where we can work on the most pressing issue that you currently have and then you can always return at a later date for subsequent sessions as and when needed.
What if it doesn’t work?
This process is about taking 100% responsibility for your perceptions and for the results in your life. If you’re taking 100% responsibility for changing your world, how can it not change? I guarantee that if you trust the process and go along with it and complete all the homework you are given, your life will never be the same again.
You're using hypnotherapy - isn't that evil?
I rarely use hypnotherapy in my sessions with my clients, unless they specifically request this, as I have found much more beneficial techniques that produce more lasting changes.
There is a common misconception about hypnosis (fueled by the stage hypnosis industry) that the trance state is some kind of special state where you can be controlled and where you are somehow not in your body. This couldn’t be further from the truth. People doing silly things on stage when “under hypnosis” can be explained in the same way that people who have had a few too many drinks might dance on the table. What the drinks/hypnosis are doing is bypassing your critical faculty, allowing you to play along with something that normally your conscious mind would not be relaxed enough to do.
The trance “state” in hypnotherapy is nothing more than a deep state of relaxation. If you’ve ever been for a full body massage and felt completely “zoned out” at the end of it, you’ll already know what this feels like. When we are deeply relaxed it is easier to suggest ideas directly to the unconscious mind (the part that is running our lives) as we have allowed our conscious, analytical part to take a break. Everything that will be said during this state of relaxation will be discussed with you beforehand. If you have any serious religious or moral objections to being this relaxed, then the hypnotherapy sections of the coaching can be left out.
"I look back on my coaching with Mia as the major turning point in my life.
Where before I felt limited, now I see an abundance of opportunities. I've started a business, dealt with my worst fears and succeeded in things I never believed possible.
And the best part is - it keeps getting better.
If you are even considering using Mia's services, my advice is: don't hesitate a moment longer. Start today."

"Mia, you have changed my view on my life. You've made me see my value, realise my worth and honestly changed my existence in ways I never thought possible.
A breakthrough is too passive a word. My mind is blown!
I'm forever grateful."
- Rob H, Johannesburg
I must be honest I am a totally different person to the one you first saw! I forget to do my breathing and homework because I am so happy I am constantly on a high! I have not had one down day since I finished with you, I am absolutely loving my life. THANK YOU. You made my life worth living again and my family are grateful because I am great to be with again.
Please keep doing the amazing work you do and change us all one person at a time!
