About me


  • Are you a professional looking for respite from stress and anxiety, or from an unfulfilling career or a dull life?
  • Are you going in circles, self sabotaging and procrastinating the action that you know you need to take to change your life, and then blaming yourself and feeling even more guilty?
  • Did you find solace in the Arts in the past, and long to return to them to heal, to find your purpose, and even to develop a solid hobby or a new career...but you never seem to find the time to take action?
  • Do you wish to boost your already good performance in sports, arts, public appearances, concerts, creative writing etc so you can get more engagement and earn more?

If you resonate with any of these three points, talk to me. I can help you today to:

  • Find the root cause of the anxiety, stress and dissatisfaction you have even despite a successful career, and replace them with calm, purpose, focus and drive.
  • Discover what is creating the self-defeating cycle that stops you from getting what you want, and re-wire your brain, transforming your mindset into a positive and confident one with laser focus on your target.
  • Remove the core issues that stop you developing as an artist/performer or to use the arts as a way to cope with life's stressful demands. Establish new ways of thinking that allow you to feel great about nourishing your soul and mind with the latest neuroscience techniques, including meditation and the arts.

Hi, I am Franz, a registered, accredited and insured Clinical Hypnotherapist and NLP Coach. I am also an Artist and a buddying photographer.

My unique experience is behind my bespoke programs. They are designed to give you the life you have always wanted and somehow has been failing to materialise.

I have been trained by the best to free you from a wide range of emotional issues and help you to reach your full potential.

My company, The Art of Living, has one main mission:

To create balance, harmony and peace within you so you can express yourself to the full, focus on what you want, and even develop your art interests (If you have any) or any other passion you might have, to any level up to a fulfilling career and anything in-between.

I also specialise in helping fellow therapists, coaches, performers, writers and entrepreneurs to gain confidence, achieve laser sharp focus and find more clients. (And be paid well for your work!) If you desire a boost in your ability to reach your target clients, addressing the obstacles deriving from outdated beliefs and mindset, you can get that with a combination of RTT and coaching. As a result your marketing efforts will be more successful too.

If you feel your life is somehow black and white, I will help you to bring the colour back in! Take action today. Your life is about to change!

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a Clinical Hypnotherapist and Performance Coach with N.L.P. I am accredited by the NCP for the Coaching Diploma. I have also reached the status of Advanced Rapid Transformational Therapist (RTT) after being personally taught by Marisa Peer.

RTT is a blend of hypnotherapy, NLP, psychotherapy and CBT that achieves results in a consistent, faster way compared to traditional talk therapy.

I am registered with the following professional bodies - which guarantee solid training and sound ethics: General Hypnotherapy Register (GHR), Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC), Professional Standards Authority (PSA). I am also accredited by the NCP (National Council of Psychotherapists) for my Coaching and NLP diploma.

I hold two Art Therapist Diplomas, a B-Tech in Graphic Design and several other qualifications as a language tutor, illustrator, herbalist and nutritionist. I also enjoy fitness, playing the piano, and giving talks and presentations to large groups.

I have worked in broadcasting for five years and have almost 1000 hours of radio experience, now growing with my Art-focused podcast, 'Create with Franz' available on iTunes, Amazon Music and so on. Despite its artistic focus, it delivers the latest neuroscience tips for a fruitful and balanced life.

As you can see I love life-long learning!

If you are looking to invest in your personal growth and achieve tangible results, we can work together and make this your new reality.

Get in touch to find out more! I am excited to work with you!

Member organisations


Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council

The CNHC encompasses many types of alternative therapy, including hypnotherapy.

In order to be admitted to the register a practitioner must have studied to the National Occupational Standards for that profession/discipline, or have reached the equivalent of the National Occupational Standards through other relevant training or at least three years of experience and been assessed by their peers.

A practitioner must also have professional insurance and agree to abide by the CNHC Code of Conduct, Performance and Ethics.


The General Hypnotherapy Register

Hypnotherapists may become members of the General Hypnotherapy Register if they satisfy certain criteria with regard to both training and ongoing requirements as determined from time to time by the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council (GHSC).

Members are either registered at Practitioner status (which confirms that the GHR acknowledges their qualification to practice), or Affiliate status. Although Affiliate level registrants will have completed a sufficient number of training hours to equip them to commence seeing clients on a limited basis, the GHR does not acknowledge them to have yet been trained to full practitioner level.

All GHR Registered Practitioners are required to accept the published Code of Ethics and Complaints & Disciplinary Procedure.

Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Areas of hypnotherapy I deal with

Information about health conditions (*)

Hypnotherapy can enhance the well-being of individuals diagnosed with serious medical conditions, but should not take the place of medical treatment and advice. If you have been diagnosed with - or suspect you may have - any of these conditions, please speak to your doctor before starting hypnotherapy.

Other areas of hypnotherapy I deal with

I work well with artists, musicians, performers, dancers, actors, creatives, people who have issues with confidence, public speaking, personalities who need to keep cool and calm, therapists, coaches, entrepreneurs, radio presenters, broadcasters.

Success comes for all clients and not just artists and performers, as you can see in my testimonials (I have many more on Facebook.com/franzsidneytherapy)


'I had a session with Franz yesterday and it was amazing! I am normally tense and it takes me a while to get my nerves under control in new situations and with new people. Franz quickly made me feel at ease with her warm personality. She is brilliant at knowing how to help you find the root of your blockages and in the moment offers you a powerful transformation. I listened to the personal transformational recording she made for me and I immediately felt the change happening within me. Thank you Franz!' 
Araceli Burgos, Psychologist

My session with Franz was fantastic, she is an incredible detective and found the root cause of my lack of confidence to perform and succeed! I have resolved some of my limiting thought patterns and replaced them with an inner cheerleader! I’m already feeling transformed, can’t wait to see what happens over the next 21 days.

Marissa Calabro, Therapist

Wow amazing session with Franz, I absolutely loved it, knowing and feeling the connectedness as one with the universe and feeling the lightness and certainty, clarity about my purpose and direction. Thank you again Franz, for your wonderful session. I look forward to listening to your recording every night

Miao Tseng, Therapist

'Franz is a fantastic coach and an amazing RTT Therapist. I am really happy she was my therapist. She is compassionate and truly understands the core of any issue. I felt so relaxed during her session and very enjoyed the transformation. She was so skillful bringing me to the core of my limiting beliefs about money. I already feel money blocks vanished and I am enthusiastic to continue follow my dreams. I enjoy listening to the recording she made for me as there is everything that I need to go on another level in my life. Can't wait for her upcoming coaching.'

Andreja Po?ivavšek, Lawyer, therapist

I do not offer one-off sessions, but a customised 30-day-programme which consists of one free discovery call (30 minutes), an RTT session, (2-2.5 hours), and three weeks of weekly follow up chats, (up to 30 minutes each, in writing or live) plus a bespoke hypnotic recording that re-wires your mind using the latest neuroscience techniques and consolidates the shift that happened during the session. (The recording is a solid part of the therapy and must be listened to for 2 months or until consolidation of new belief is felt as solid)

Call me or send a message today for a free chat to discover how my programmes work and how I can help you.

Further information

I am trained to work with symptoms ranging from anxiety to depression, self sabotage, procrastination, lack of confidence, lack of clarity or drive, relationship issues etc, money blocks, emotional eating and so on. These issue are common and can affect us at many levels, making it difficult to create healthy relationships, find or keep a job we enjoy, being paid for what we are worth, finding the right clients and performing at out best. I especially enjoy working with creatives and performers (dancers, musicians, illustrators, textile artists, coaches, therapists and so on - anyone who must put himself or herself on the spot). My background in business, broadcasting, dance, visual arts, textiles and photography allows me to deeply understand performance issues, limiting beliefs and feelings of not being good enough, or being scattered, which can pervasively hinder success.

If you want to hear my voice and get a feel of what is like to be around me, feel free to listen to my podcast: it's available on iTunes, Amazon Music, Podbean and Libsyn. Its name is Create with Franz and its aim is to help everyone to get started or get back to art and go to the next step with confidence. In my show I interview other artists and ask them for tips on how to get where they are. I also give many tips to overcome emotional issues that block many of us from even trying something new. There is something useful in every episode!
