About founder and Owner of Influential Advisor


My name is Gwen and I am the founder and business owner of Influential Advisor.

I was employed with the New Zealand Police for a few years and was the co-founder of a tourist business  in New Zealand for 15 years, plus studying natural therapies and a mother of three.  I made the decision to move to Australia where I continued studying natural therapies and started a natural therapy business in the Blue Mountains.   Clients asked me to teach so I set up courses and thoroughly enjoyed imparting knowledge and still do today.

I would like to share with you one of my many experiences.

I traveled to the Australian Desert where I stayed with 6 indigenous desert tribes, at Ernabella, now known as Pukatja. I Slept under the stars in swag (a swag is a canvas bedroll normally with zips down either side) on sacred women’s ceremony land.  I was very grateful for the knowledge I gained about their history and dreamtime.

I moved to the Sunshine Coast, Queensland where I volunteered at a shelter for homeless teenagers and at the same time I set up practise here on the Sunshine Coast as a Hypnotherapy Practitioner, Metaphysical Counsellor and Qi Gong Energy Healer.

I have over 35 years experience and qualifications, supporting people all over the world as a metaphysical counsellor and advisor, as well as accompanying woman when they have needed to face difficult situations that they normally would have found very stressful.

I have had what one could call a “sixth sense” and have supported people all over the world with this gift.

I have traveled independently to Europe, United Kingdom, Thailand, New Zealand, Australia, United States of America and many more countries.

I am passionate about supporting women because there have been many times in my life when I was challenged, that caused me to feel isolated and alone that would have been much easier if I was able to call and Influential Advisor who was outside of the situation it would have eased those types of times.
