My Story

My Story

Supporting you to soar to new heights

Hi, I’m Lisa Waldhart. Hypnotherapist – and in my former life, Australia’s only female microlighting chief flying instructor.

Why do I bring up my past?

Because guiding you through this journey of self-empowerment is like learning to fly. You’ll learn to leave your limiting beliefs behind – and set yourself free.

Taking flight – and taking control

My vision for 1-2-3 Hypnotherapy began to take shape in 1998 with my bachelor’s in psychology and sociology. I had grand plans to help people overcome life’s challenges.

But life, as it often does, lifted me off in a new direction.

It set me down next to a man who had a passion for flying. Personally, I found the prospect of taking to the air completely terrifying.

But I would soon face my fear head on. After marrying, we ran Eagle Flying School together – and I trained to become a flight instructor myself.

Over the next 18 years, I taught hundreds of people to fly. From young and young at heart to able-bodied and disabled. Using my knowledge of human psychology in a whole new way.

It was an honour to soar by their side and watch them as they overcame the limits of their mind – to embrace life’s possibilities

It would be an honour to soar by your side as you overcome your challenges to embrace life’s possibilities.

An ethos that’s shaped my life

Life is wonderful – and tough. I get this.

I’ve raised two unique and wonderful children, lost my first husband to cancer, sold our flying school and fallen in love again with a man who’s helped me soar to even greater heights.

After marrying, we moved our family to Austria for eight years experiencing new cultures, new languages and facing new challenges together.

More recently life, once again, lifted me off in a different direction and set me down in Australia helping the kids to move into the next chapter of their lives.

As a couple and a family, we continue to support one another to navigate life’s twists and turns. Always adjusting and heading towards growth.

What life has taught me is that change is inevitable, and challenges will keep showing up. I see these challenges as opportunities for growth and becoming more confident in who I am.

Through teaching people to fly, ongoing study, witnessing the incredible transformation in my hypnotherapy clients and many heart-opening moments of my own life, I have come to know that; the only limits to freedom are the ones that live in your mind.

All of this has given me the skills and ability to help you to overcome your pain and limitations by guiding you from fear to freedom.

Getting to know you

Now that you know a bit about me and my story, I’m looking forward to hearing all about you. To help guide you back to understanding just how amazing you are.
Let’s take flight, together.

Delivered with heart.

Strong yet nurturing; knowledgeable yet highly intuitive. That’s how people describe me.

My heart, skillset and doors are open to all. I won’t turn you away.

I will support you even if you’ve lost hope. Even if you’ve ‘tried it all’ and feel like there’s nowhere else to turn.

There is always a solution. And you can overcome any challenges you face.

How do I know? Because I’ve seen firsthand the remarkable changes people have made with hypnotherapy. And I believe in you, even if you don’t believe in yourself – yet.

Why 5-PATH®?

In short, because it’s the most efficient and effective way to create permanent change.

As you can see, my list of qualifications is long – and I’ve pursued many avenues of study and training in my search for lasting solutions.

My initial academic studies began with psychology, spanning rapidly to NLP and a variety of approaches to hypnosis and hypnotherapy. As I continued to work with clients, I realised that all these approaches worked. But only for some people, some of the time – not for all people, all the time.

Dissatisfied, I went on a quest to find a universal system of hypnotherapy that worked for virtually every problem – every time. Which is when I discovered 5-PATH®.

It brought everything I’d ever done together into one powerful system. Blending the best of psychology and hypnosis.

And best of all, it works every time, for every client – across a broad range of issues. Consistently producing profound results.

5-PATH® is not just another methodology. And to me, it’s much more than just another theoretical framework that informs my therapy.

It has helped me to understand myself, my life, and exactly where my pain comes from. Allowing me to be at peace with myself and others.

Now, it’s become the lens through which I help my clients to understand their inner world, so they too can find peace with themselves – and learn to live their lives authentically.
