    Best massage ever

    16-11-2016 by Jess

    I have been receiving treatment from Katrina at ProActive Massage for the last month and she has helped me so much with my back pain not only just massaging the areas I have pain but assessing me and getting to why it is occurring in the first place. She has so much knowledge and understanding about the human body and the best hands on treatment I have ever had (and I have had a lot of massage over the years). Even though I am now not in pain and do not necessarily need massages as regularly I will be returning every few weeks.

    Trilby has somehow reset my pain, and given me the ability to keep well

    12-02-2019 by Nan Einarson

    I came to see Trilby for Breakthrough 1 on 1 sessions, to ask for help with my chronic pain from an injured back, and pain and bleeding from endometriosis. Trilby helped me find a new way of living with my pain, letting go of the fear that was causing a lot of my pain. Fear of pain on movement, fear that today’s pain would be permanent. She released my old, limiting beliefs, and replaced them with a belief in my own abundance of health. I have learned that I have some control over my experience of pain and can live with what I consider an acceptable level of discomfort (there is no magical way to remove all pain instantly…!) So that now I do not experience the spikes in pain that I used to and I am able to use my body with more ease and love. As a result of this freeing of fear and pain, I am more energised and better able to live my life well. I don’t wait to feel better tomorrow. I know that when I wake up each day that I am better, I can move with less pain, and that I have a good body that works with me, not against me. Before I came to Trilby I had seen a whole host of other practitioners in an effort to relieve my pain. All offered some relief, but most of it was brief. Trilby has somehow reset my pain, and given me the ability to keep well, well beyond our sessions together. For this I am forever grateful. Lisa x

    My outlook has changed significantly and I no longer hold back

    12-02-2019 by Nan Einarson

    I have had the joy of working with Trilby for some energy alchemy sessions. I had been feeling very tired and unwell and felt that I was just existing and going through the motions of my work and life in general. Through several sessions, Trilby has taught me many things – to relax, to breathe, to let go of the self limiting beliefs that I had. It is a very powerful thing to know that you can be the catalyst for change in your own life by making a choice to just let things go! My outlook has changed significantly and I no longer hold back. I know and trust my own instincts and have a more positive way of looking at my life, and if any negativity creeps in, I can choose to change. Trilby is a wonderful teacher, she has a calm and gentle approach to working on “the hard stuff” in a very empowering way and I am very grateful to have had this learning opportunity”

    I ended up having one of the most unique and uplifting experiences of my life!

    12-02-2019 by Nan Einarson

    I truly did not know what to expect from this 28 Days F.A.T. Diet programme when I began. I have had a “problem” with my weight consistently and insistently creeping up on me for the past several years, and am always looking at Diets and weight loss programs, to find something that would work. Trilby and I met during a course we were both taking, and I was very intrigued with her new program. When she rolled it out, I was eager to enroll and find out if I could learn something about body and weight that I didn’t already know. I ended up having one of the most unique and uplifting experiences of my life! I lost a few more pounds, although weight loss was not at all the focus of these sessions. At the end of the programme, I am left with a huge gift – of having met Trilby and experienced her gifts, knowledge & perspectives, and having gained through her, a new awareness of my body and how to provide it with the health, happiness and love it deserves.”

    Trilby is the real thing!

    05-03-2016 by Bonnie Bonsor

    Trilby Johnson is unique. In the many treatments and intuitive sessions that I have had with various practitioners over the past 20 years, I can say that what Trilby accomplished was phenomenal. The benefits and obvious changes I received from spending 30 minutes with Trilby via Skype…were enormous. She has a gift! A very caring and genuine person, what Trilby does is to spiritually and mentally tap into the essence of what you need to change, improve, release, or manifest in your life. It is not complicated ~ it’s so simple it’s refreshing. The process is easy, grounded, very straight-forward. It seems effortless – actually casual…yet the results are specific, and in my case, quite amazing! If you need anything from clarity to calmness to a major life “make-over” ~ Trilby can assist you in allowing it to happen. She can tune in to old issues that have held you back, and assist in re-routing and silencing those messages so they no longer have any power. It is well worth the time and money to give yourself the gift of a clear space to be guided into a new way of existing, minus some baggage and burdens. Trilby Johnson is the real thing!

    The lump was gone!

    05-03-2016 by Brenton

    After finding a lump in my left arm the size of a squash ball, I realised I had a choice to make. Feed the human fear or create a reality of thriving. It took me a few moments to decide and I chose to thrive. In that moment, I realised that I could just facilitate it myself, or I could ask for facilitation from someone else. So I contacted Trilby Johnson, gave her the details and asked her for facilitation. Within moments of the session beginning, the lump began reacting and reducing in size and importance. It continued to do so until it disappeared. It took seconds! It is over a week now. I have no sign of any lumps at all. I am left with a new experience of how we can co-create. I could have created it alone, it was a choice to ask for facilitation. We are never alone and asking for facilitation is a choice. in this case it was filled with Ease Joy Glory. Thank you Trilby for your amazing abilities and tools and your compassionate facilitation and feedback you offered during this remote healing experience.

    You gave me my wings back!

    05-03-2016 by Lori Mitchell

    Trilby's Advanced Body Love program was transformational for me. I chose the 4 week intensive because I knew I was becoming overly concerned about aging. I love my body, yet felt more and more critical of the changes it was going through. What I noticed was that in each session the experience was like going to a spa, where you can surrender the body to the massage therapist to work on it. I have a busy, active life and I am always the one 'trying to find the answers.' These sessions were gorgeously passive, and I could just show up and allow Trilby to connect to my body and ask it what it needed. I had input too, with particular areas I wanted to focus on resolving, so it was still interactive. I would recommend the multiple session programs because I saw it build momentum until I had some truly incredible breakthroughs especially in the last 2 sessions. Trilby (and my body) worked together for my benefit and one of the most important results I received was a powerful balancing of my masculine and feminine. I also can continually feel the blocks she removed, and I can say that she literally 'gave me back my wings.' I will be eternally gratefully for the breakthroughs I have had during the 4 weeks and it feels like I have gone through a portal into new possibilities for my life and my business. Thank you Trilby. You have a very special gift and I am glad you are sharing it with the world.

    Less mind chatter and feel lighter

    05-03-2016 by Veronica

    The challenges I was facing before working with you were, lack of a paid work with joy. I felt frustrated and a lack of stimulation. I feel lighter and more motivated around home. That has had a flow on effect into my relationship with my partner for the better. With feeling lighter I feel more energetic. The chatter in my head has lessened. I still get some chatter but nothing like before. This makes me feel calmer and happier. No change on the job front as yet, but coping with it better knowing work has been done to support the search and everything is as it should be. A sense of excitement has returned. It was fun working with you. You kept it light with your sense of humour. I felt anything could be discussed and follow up was there if required.

    Trilby, you must share this Gift

    05-03-2016 by Kathy Milam

    I had my first session with Trilby two weeks ago on 25/11/15. I had been struggling most of my adult life with weight loss and when menopause hit I became extremely frustrated. I tried diets, exercise programs, herbs, supplements and so forth, but continued to gain weight. I began to realise that there was probably an emotional component to my problem and that is when Trilby offered to help. She took me thru a technique that allowed me to remember my initial struggle with weight loss and I could see the emotions involved. I was able to release those old feelings and exchange them for more positive ones. Trilby then took me back to past lives and I could see the patterns and my sense of heaviness and "burden". I was thrilled to see the connections and again was able to release and shift those thought processes that we're keeping me weighed down. I went away from the session feeling lighter and free! Two days after the session I weighed myself and I had lost two kilograms without even dieting!! I don't know if I will continue to lose weight, but I have learned to love myself as I am and I am still feeling very free of past burdens and open to possibilities. I continue to feel happy about life and I am looking forward to feeling well within my body. I think a new exercise routine is in order and I know this time I will see some results. I would highly recommend Trilby and this new technique. It was very easy, non threatening and very effective. Thank you, Trilby for making life a little easier!
