Meet our ‘Quit Smoking’ Team

Steve Gardiner – Hypnotherapist, Anxiety and Trauma Therapist and Life Coach

Stephen Gardiner - Quit Smoking Expert

Steve is an expert hypnotherapist Steve’s background as an agronomist consulting on and curing tobacco growth systems means he was intrinsically linked to smoking long before he attained his Master of Hypnosis.  His first-hand knowledge of tobacco and its effect on the body gives him a unique ability to help people transition from smoking addiction to a healthier, more fulfilling lifestyle.


In 2006, Steve began training with world-leading human behavioural specialists and Masters of Hypnotherapy. He has trained with and has Certifications from:

  • QC Seminars  – Quit Smoking in 60 Minutes Certificate
  • Real Education –  Real Coach – Level 5
  • Tad James and American Hypnotherapy Ass – Master Hypnotherapy Trainer
  • Rick Collingwood – Diploma of Hypnosis
  • Dr. John DeMartini  – Facilitator & Human Behavioral Therapist
  • Melissa Tiers –  Integrative Life Coach
  • The Richards Trauma Process – Mentor, Trainer and Certified Therapist

Steve, as a business owner and facilitator, combines decades of experience in speaking, coaching, plus hypnotherapy to help people give up and permanently stay free of smoking. In his own words:

“I believe that we are all here on this earth for a purpose. When you see the balance in the world, the emotions that stopped you from living your life in line with what you believe rather than how society thinks you should do disappear.”

Specialising in one-on-one consultations (face-to-face or via ZOOM), Steve uses his own 4-step process to enable people to become permanent non-smokers.  Steve trains hypnotherapists to use his unique hypnosis process.  


Being an ex-soldier, Steve is passionate about working with clients to resolve long-term anxiety, stress, depression and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, PTSD.  Steve’s own experience gives him first-hand knowledge about the effects connected to smoking, drinking, gambling and other addictive behaviours that can be ‘symptoms’ of an unresolved past emotional event.  If you, or anyone you know, has long-term depression, panic attacks or stress, please suggest they call Steve.  At Transformations Coaching & Hypnotherapy, we offer 30-45 minute free consultations to discuss and offer solutions to resolve your issues.
