"When you are ready...
Opportunities will arise.
All you need to do ... is
be free to grasp them."

Pauline Kam Po Lin


Within each and everyone of us
is a dream... a vision... a goal... a purpose.

Are YOU living yours???

We start our journey into the world with vigour, passion and freedom, believing in ourselves and our abilities to create the visions we see ourselves and our future.

As we strive to succeed in all that we set our minds to achieve, life brings to us many valuable experiences that helps us thrive in all aspects of life.

However, at some stage through life, the occassional challenge takes us into the off-beaten track and for some, a fog sets in over time and the road ahead is not as clear.

Like a compass pointing to earth's true north, we have this knowledge that we will succeed so we plough through the terrain of life experiences. There comes a time in each of our lives, when we have to take stock and review if the road we are on is still ours to lead.

Becoming aware of this turning point is when true transformation happens.

To LIVE your truth ... to BE your truth.

To do this ... the first step is to clear the fog and step back into your essential self.

Successful people for generations use this unconscious ability. We have this natural pull to achieve success in life because we have this knowledge within us. The only thing is ... sometimes, we need a reminder of how create this unconscious ability. Are you ready to join the many others who have succeeded in life before you.

True Essence Therapy Services specialises in helping you reclaim the rightful lifepath that is yours. Through the process of Re-Emergence, you can release the past more easily.

Pauline Kam invites you to step up to live your life to its fullest. You are then empowered to live your future to its highest potential because being free of old patterns and conditionings enables you to realign your life focus back to your own natural drive.

Traditional therapy often looks at reviewing the past, learning to understand how it has impacted us today and helps us decide where we want to go from here. However ... people often find themselves knowing what they want, and the things they should do to get there and yet ... find themselves not being able to do so despite all their knowledge, understanding and willingness.

Clients who experience the powerful impact of Re-Emergence find themselves surprised at the ease and speed in which changes happen in life as a whole.

If you are ready to experience the freedom to be YOU ... then take this one first step

We all have a natural drive to achieve and enjoy success. However, many have forgotten how to attain joy, peace and fulfillment easily. True Essence recognizes that everyone has an innate ability to achieve this.  Each person has their own unique state of potential, and through the empowerment and realignment of the self, the past is free to be released and this awakens the experience of peace and total acceptance. 

When we regain insight into our true essence and the potentials of our birthright, the skills of truth and freedom can be re-learnt to achieve all that is rightfully ours.

This is done with the understanding and development of the complete self (not only the subconscious mind but also that of the conscious mind and other aspects of the complete personality).

These awakened insights enables the person to regain wholistic balance and to begin to live life in the present reality, with truth and ease,  resulting in an ability to have clarity to create productive change aligned with one's life purpose.There are many routes to one same destination, some are further and fraught with obstacles while others are closer, more direct and easier. True Essence  offers one such route that will allow you to deal with the source of a problem in the best way possible without having to step into other minefields of emotion.




Eventhough I discovered many answers in alternative therapies, I wish to acknpoweldge the undeniable role medicine holds in assisting the balance of life.  Every person is a mental, emotional, physical and spiritual personality, so each form of therapy provides for us the solutions and understandings we need to bring balance back into our being.  Therefore, True Essence values the importance of working alongside mainstream medicine to improve one's quality of life by achieving and maintaining a balanced perception of internal and external processes in one's life.

It has become apparent to me that most of these therapies offer valuable tools to many who experience are in a need to release past life impacts, however for so many who have gone through the cycle of therapy, they are ready to step up into living an empowered life and yet the techniques of therapy modalities tend to focus on the identification, understanding, and release of past or problematic life issues.  Many get to the end of therapy in a better space to carry on but it seems that the line has ended there.





True Essence strongly identifies with the value and benefits of the re-identification and empowerment of our true essence towards our truest potential.

  he misinterpretation of the arising issue or symptom, leads to the plant being pulled out like a weed instead of the nurturing of a strong developing tree, therefore many find themselves back to square one unneccessarily.

When we want to build a house, we want to do so effectively by employing reliable, capable and professional builders and service providers.  Otherwise, buildings get to a stage where they may have to be pulled down and rebuilt instead of being expanded on.

Therefore, my intention to step up into the new role of expanding consciousness required a complete change to the way I work. In alignment with this decision, I have since stepped back from mainstream hypnotherapy and handed over the position as President for the New Zealand Hypnotherapists Registration Board Inc. after two terms of service. I still utilise hypnotherapy as a therapeutic tool however the focus is in empowering life change and developing consicousness for life fulfilment. 

Playing a board game ... goal is to get to the finish line.


To assist you towards successful living, I use a combination of different techniques to suit your personality and needs best. Each individual is different and hence our needs all differ accordingly.

I offer an initial 30 minute assessment consultation appointment to discuss your needs and the best course of action for you to achieve your goals. Why is an Assessment Consultation important?

You are guaranteed an individually tailored programme to suit your needs. There is no unnecessary prolonged course of therapy. I believe in client independence at the end of my programme and I encourage your participation throughout.


Often when someone has experienced trauma or is stuck by illness, people become victims or survivors needing therapy to manage their I view trauma and illness in a way that The more I share this proramme with others, the more astounded I am at its power to release, heal and empower. Since my first training programme for therapists, the successes they have experienced with their clients have reconfirmed the strength and effectiveness of this programme.

My journey into this field began from very early on.  However, when I began to experience numerous forms of health issues over several years, I expanded my search to cover mainstream medicine through to other alternative possibilities.  It was then, that I delved into the study of the unconscious mind and my health started to improve quickly as the symptoms began to disappear.  Even so, I was relatively reserved to ascribe the changes to the workings of the unconscious mind alone.  From there, I delved into the workings of the soul and as my search for alternative explanations continued, I realised the potential power held in the space where the human mind works in partnership with the soul.

My passion, absolute belief and understanding of this programme lies in the fact that this has a grounding beyond merely theoretical practices.  It arose from practical foundations, including my personal experiences and those of people I have worked with.

This does not say that we were wrong to seek therapy.  Just an awareness that the need for therapy has served its purpose in many and is preparing to be replaced with the next stage of development, self consciousness and empowerment.  Just like a full grown tree needing different care from a small seedling.  Give a small seedling too much fertiliser and sunlight could cause root burns and wilting of its leaves; while too little nutrients and sunlight can stunt the growth of a tree, limiting its ability to flower and fruit.


The exercises set out for you will normally take very little time to complete. For successful change, we work with the mind to identify the areas that need change while some things need to be done behaviourally. We make it easier by clearing the way for the mind to move on. Like a gymnast, their mind needs to be clear and positive but that in itself does not make them do their moves perfectly in the arena. They have succeeded through practice (physical) and complete belief (emotional / mental / spiritual) that they can do it. And this belief often gets stronger each time they practice.


First of all, I will be truthful and realistic. It depends on many things. It is true that many people resolve their issues in one or two sessions, but if you have something which is deep and long standing, you may well need more than a few sessions.  This is true for therapy in general.

           *  Some people resolve things in one session.
           *  80% have done so within three.
           *  Some people need more then three.

In the instance of ReEmergence, based on your initial assessment meeting, I will give you an estimate duration of a programme based on your needs. The speed at which you complete it lies solely within you and your personal circumstances.  Most people complete the programme in 3 one-on-one sessions.  Phone followup is also possible where necessary.




Frequently Asked Questions 

Why is an assessment consultation important? 

This appointment will allow you to meet Pauline before deciding to proceed into therapy and for Pauline to assess how best this programme can help and support you. This also provides you with the opportunity to have any questions you may have answered and to clarify your understanding of what this therapy focuses on.


The 'Power of Change' programme is unique and very powerful for those who commit to it. For many, the changes are quick, intense and very productive. To ensure that you will benefit most from working with this programme, we need to assess and discuss the suitability of this programme based on your circumstances.

You have the options of making an appointment for an assessment only or for an assessment with the possibility of flowing into a full session.

Why other therapists may not require an assessment consultation?

True Essence has one clear aim ... to empower you to be YOU in everyway.
This programme aims to work with your complete personality ... mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually. We need to be sure that you fully understand the changes that you may experience before we embark on any form of therapy because the changes can be very powerful and 'life changing', therefore it is our responsibility to ensure that the programme is presented at its optimal.


So, this is not a straighforward case of being hypnotised to change a behaviour, feeling or thought. Once your personal power for change is discovered and allowed to flow, most experience changes across many aspects of life - including the original issue that brought them to therapy plus improvements in relationships, career choices, emotional balance 'peace' and mental clarity of their life direction.

Is change really that simple?

Absolutely. It is fairly easy and simple. Simple things often works wonders, however people have been conditioned to believe that things have to be complicated to work or to mean something. That's a misconception.


Some clients even go to the extent of expressing that the process seems "too easy". They have wondered how something so simple can effect change so easily and quickly.

As the saying goes ... KISS = "Keep it Simple Spirit". I have replaced the negative synonym with "Spirit" because when we live in the spirit of things, nature flows gracefully. When we recognise our spiritual essence, we can enjoy the effects of change as a child would.

Is the 'Power of Change - Re-Emergence' programme for everyone?

This programme is best suited for individuals who are absolutely ready to embark on their adventure of life through the journey of change. Those who are ready to be responsible for their personal success in their unique natural way will enjoy and grow in leaps and bounds long after the end of this programme.

For those who want to only give it a try, I'd recommend a different course of process prior to embarking on this programme.


Everyone is different and we all change as we develop throughout life. As we change, our needs change. My recommendation would be to check with your sense of self. I often ask people why they chose to see me instead of the other therapists they enquired about. The most common answer was ... "I can't really give a reason. I just felt like this was just the right thing for me." Some even said that they have tried going to several other therapists but they just knew there was something different when I explained my process to them.

I have even had several people who return 6 months after having the assessment appointment to begin their course of therapy. Throughout this time, they have experienced various changes and one day, they find themselves thinking that they are now ready to embark on this change. So ... you are the best judge of what will suit you best.

There is a time for everything. Very much like a fruit that is ripe and ready for the picking, will naturally drop when it is ready. If one picks the fruit forcefully and tries to ripen it prematurely, the fruit may not be as sweet or succulent. When we are able to enjoy each step of our journey, we are able then to make the best of each experience.

The most important thing to consider before you embark on any therapy is how you feel about the therapist.

How Many Sessions Do I Need?

First of all, I will be truthful and realistic. It depends on many things. It is true that many people resolve their issues in one or two sessions, but if you have something which is deep and long standing, you may well need more than a few sessions.

*  Some people resolve things in one session.
*  80% have done so within three.
*  Some people need more then three.


Based on your initial assessment meeting, I will give you an estimate duration of a programme based on your needs. The speed at which you complete it lies solely within you and your personal circumstances. The speed in which healing and change is achieved has no indication of how successful a person you are. It just means that perhaps the things troubling you need to be addressed within its own natural rate. Through the combination of techniques, we short cut the process and make the changes far more quickly and effectively so that you can carry on and focus on the more important and meaningful things in your life. The success of change is determined by the rules of the mind within each and every one of us. However, the rule of the mind that is understood is quite different to how Re-Emergence has found the mind works.

I want to be hypnotised, be told what to feel or do, wake up and not have to do anything else. Can't I just be hypnotised?

Of course you can, if that is your choice. It is perfectly a normal desire to just hope for change to happen with the blink of an eye. Hypnosis is more than just being hypnotised and being programmed with a new version of thought or belief systems. In a simplistic way, that is the easiest way to describe this.

However, even when we upgrade a computer or load on a new computer programme, we still need to ensure that whatever we are loading on is compatible with the computer or we may end up corrupting existing files and causing errors.

I am not good at following any processes, so I don't want to do anything. I just want to wake up a different person.

Would you give your car keys to Joe Bloggs and tell him ... "I am all yours and these are my preferences. You take me where ever you think is right for me"? I think not. We all like to achieve our goals and feel the success of the investment of our energies and focus.

You are not a car that you take into your garage to have it serviced at the whim of the mechanic. I imagine that before the mechanic starts on any changes, you want to know what they plan to do, how they hope to do this, what they wish to achieve from this and you'd see if it would really be something you want to have in your car. Otherwise, if you take a manual car in, you may end up with an automatic car with modifications that don't meet your needs.


Paul McKenna's TV series "I Can Change Your Life" had a lady who was house bound for a few years. In the short period of and hour and a half, she was out walking around the block. She had her freedom back and could go places with ease after just one session. This lasted for about 3 weeks after which her symptoms slowly crept back in. So ... Yes, with hypnosis change can be effected but for long lasting change, your minds (conscious and subconscious) has to be working in alignment.

Hypnosis can help you clear out an untidy and outdated wardrobe instantaneously and of course once it is tidied up, you will feel fantastic for a few weeks while it remains tidy. However, if you continue to fill the wardrobe with thoughts, feelings and behaviours you had before, it is only a matter of time that you will feel the wardrobe is bursting out for attention again.

As Henry Ford said, "If you always do what you have always done, you will always get what you have always got."

Why is this different to classical hypnotherapy?

At True Essence we work with the fundamentals of hypnotherapy techniques however, we focus on an outcome that is true for your essence.

This programme works with your complete personality ... mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually. The changes occur because it aims to help you connect to your true desires, strengths and reasons for change. Therefore the changes happen from within instead of being induced from suggestions introduced externally. That way, the effects of the change are long term.


''An Effective goal is not driven by urgency or reaction. It is something we feel deep inside that we need to do. And it is in harmony with our mission and true inner principles.'' (Author unknown)

At the end of the therapy, the programme aims to help you realise, feel and believe that the changes have happened because of you and your own strengths, confidence and sense of self. Changes do not happen because of hypnosis or therapist. It works to help you discover how powerful you are. Most individuals who complete the programme find themselves able to recreate the success in different aspects of their life throughout the future. That is what I call empowerment.

How often to I need to come back for top-up sessions?

Top-up sessions are not required once change happens from within.

Once you have learnt your mathematics (addition, subtraction, multiplication tables etc), it is with you for the rest of your life. We don't ever need to relearn that. Sometimes, if it has not been used for a little while, it may take a little longer to do a maths question, however the more we practice, the ability returns to your consciousness very quickly.


Some clients call or email me months or years later to express how life has changed and how much they still use the techniques we shared. Of course they have also gained new skills along the way and that's fantastic. I am only one step along their full and wonderful experience of life.

For those who choose to make a follow up appointment about 6 months or a year later, they do so because they recognise that there is something that needs clarifying in their future and they wish to move further into the next stage of clarity. There is no need to re-address the same issue they originally came for.

The therapist will his or her best job based on their knowledge and skills. Your responsibility is in carrying on the wonderful work beyond your achievements gained beyond session times.

Noone, apart from yourself, can claim to have all the answers to your questions and process of life. The role of the therapist is to help you access the answers within you much easier. So instead of telling you how you are going to feel from now on, you will begin to learn how to xommunicate with your complete personality and discover its powerful function in life.

Do I need to have rapport with the therapist? I have been to many different types of therapy before and they found it difficult to build rapport with me.

This can arise for some people especially if they have long standing unresolved issues. Mainstream therapy including counselling, psychotherapy, hypnotherapy etc. has a basis of rapport building prior to the beginning of a successful therapy. Sometimes this happens instantaneously while others may take a little while to achieve. For some, if the difficulty to build rapport, is the main issue for seeking therapy, the therapist has to be able to look beyond this and work with what is truly presented by the client.


While rapport building is recognised as important in therapy work, the Re-Emergence process works to build connections to the whole personality (conscious and unconscious) included. Rapport is not essential in the process of change. A successful therapy is determined through the ability for awareness and change that is affected in the best interest of the client, by the client him or herself.

Through building a connection with the true essence of your personality, we can easily get straight to the core instead of having to beat around the bush with life conditioned reservations. The true essence of a person knows intuitively whom to trust and open up to and to what extent.

What if I have difficulty opening up to talk about my problem?

When we become aware that we have a problem, it is not really the problem that is the issue. Usually people seek therapy for to addres the symptom that we see to be the problem. So, to be able to share and be open about the problem requires that we acknowledge that we may not always know what the problem really is and for real freedom, we also need to be aware that we don;'t really need to know what the problem is.


And to talk about the problem or feelings means that the cause is very precise which life never is. Let us consider the example of a child who has fallen down and crying like it is the worst thing ever that happened. She
br>Because we will be working with the deeper aspects of your personality and consciousness, we will be communicating in the sub-conscious mind's natural language. Sometimes we may know that we are sad and if we were to talk about our feelings consciously, we may express that we are 'sad'. However, when we look further into it, we realise that within the feeling of being sad also contains the feelings of 'frustration, disappointment, anger, hope and other emotions that really has mo one word to express it.' Therefore the client may not need to talk about the problem consciously.

Further to that, many clients return to their second session sharing that they have come to a realisation that the problem that brought them to therapy in the first place was not the real problem they wanted to work with. The subconscious knows the best order in which issues need to be addressed.

There have been people who have sought therapy to end drug addictions who realised that they have carried guilt in their life or that they have been trying to manage ADHD through the use of drugs. Stopping smoking may have embedded within it a desire to build respectful relationships in their life. Weight loss may have behind it a holding back of pain experienced arising from a loss of a loved one. There are so many possibilities and each person is completely different. No matter what it is ... when the person realises the truth within themselves and is able to relate with the self, the reasons and need for the addictions, depression, anxieties etc, diminishes.
