About Pamela Young

I will soon be 81 years old and tickled pink to be still upright. I have a good life. I still see clients, mainly in their own homes. I attend a lot of congresses, conferences and training sessions (never too old to learn). My apartment sits across from the north end of Maroubra Beach with 270 deg. views. There is always something intriguing to gaze at – the whales and dolphins twice a year, the stand-up paddle boarders, the surfers, the walkers, the beautiful surf in all its moods. Every morning two lorikeets come for their wholemeal bread. I often sit on the balcony and cook lunch on my portable grill, sitting amongst pots of lettuce, spinach, eggplant, tomatoes, chillies, and herbs: French tarragon, bayleaf, basil, rosemary, oregano, marjoram, thyme, mint and parsley. Throw a handful of herbs on every meal. My wonderful son has an equally lovely wife and three sons, 18, 16 and 14. They are the joy of my life as are my many good friends (some dating back to primary school) and colleagues. I was divorced, and later had two very dear partners, now deceased. One of them was Bill Peach; many of you may remember him. I was with him for 15 years until he died in 2013. He infected me with the travel bug, with many overseas and domestic Journeys taking place each year. The other long-term relationship left me with a taste for champagne, good wine, gourmet food and the Opera. Most of my life I have played tennis and golf, surfed (even in winter) and skied overseas and locally. Slowing down a bit now, love to see a film and do cryptic crosswords and sudoko. Passionate about bridge. I feel I have been very fortunate and would like to continue in that vein. Fingers crossed.

Post 8. A Night to Remember (cont. iv)

Yes indeed, what words came out that had such a magical effect? Something apt from "The Merchant of Venice"? I can't quite see them being inspired by Shylock's speech pinning Antonio down to donating a pound of his flesh. I still remember quite a bit of the Rubaiyat: "Come, fill the Cup, and in the

Post 7. A Night to Remember (cont. iii)

They were very respectful and apologetic, returning my handbag, which they had purloined. They gave me the impression that Robbie had assured them I would be a willing participant in their plans. I was a virgin, for goodness sake! Methinks Robbie saw a quick escalation to Queen Bee if I disappeared. If events had gone

A Night to Remember (cont.)

They turned right off the Pacific Highway and I later guessed they went into bushland somewhere near Brooklyn. They parked the car in a clearing in the middle of the bush, and continued with their salacious discourse. I was in between two men on one side and one on the other side in the back

A Night to Remember or Scheherazade Revisited

When I was 17 years of age I worked at The Land Newspaper as the secretary to the Managing Editor. I had not been there very long when the Queen Bee, the Editor of the Children's Page, retired and went to live in Tasmania. I was given the job of answering the Buzzers letters, finding

Post 4. What Happened Next

I continued working at U.T.,S for 26 years, then worked for an employee assistance program for 16 years and began a parallel private practice in 2005, all the while using hypnosis as my main psychological technique. For your sake I should mentioned E.M.D.R., the second string to my bow. If you have suffered from trauma

Post 3 How It Began

I met Richard Walsh at a party and he said "Pam, if you ever write a book let me have a look at it." At that time he was the Managing Editor of Angus and Robertson, book publishers. Later I wondered if he said that to everyone. When I'd accumulated a sizeable amount of scripts

Testing

I divided 120 subjects into 60 making their own recordings and 60 listening to my recording. I had another variable called locus of control: whether a person believed they were in control of their own lives and destinies and liked it that way or not, and people who believed their lives were in the control

Introduction

Hello, I’m Pam Young.  That’s how I begin my recordings.  All this began when I enrolled in a Ph.D. in obesity at Uni. of New South Wales.   At the time I was staff and student counsellor at University of Technology, Sydney.  One day the editor of the student newspaper “Newswit” asked for hypnosis to help
