Meet our ‘Quit Smoking’ Team

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


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 the 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 behavioral 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 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 has a passion for working with clients resolving 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 behaviors 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 give Steve a call.  At Transformations Coaching & Hypnotherapy we offer 30-45 minute free consultations to discuss and offer solutions to resolve your issues.
