Wendy Honnor

Wendy Honnor is a very unique person, who successfully helps people to have better lives.

She is an internationally awarded consultant who is a personal coach, speaker and researcher and her background training is in ethics, philosophy, communication and counselling. Wendy is Australian and has her practice in Launceston in Tasmania, the breathtakingly beautiful island state, south of the mainland of Australia.

Wendy’s clients have sessions with her on Skype or they come to see her in person in Tasmania. 

She also allocates several weeks a year to travel to clients within Australia and internationally on request. 

Wendy also speaks at seminars and workshops worldwide. She has visited more than 100 cities in the last ten years, coaching clients and giving talks and training seminars in such places as Berlin, Hamburg, Amsterdam, Zurich, Madrid, Copenhagen, Prague, Tel Aviv, London, Edinburgh, Dublin, Tokyo, Chicago, Los Angeles, Stockholm, Pasadena, Montreal and Taipei – an area spanning 5 continents. 

Wendy says, "I have studied many personal development and self-help philosophies over the last 30 years, both modern and ancient. They all have their merit and each philosopher has in their own way attempted to unlock the secrets of life and living. But after having given over 25,000 hours of personal consulting over the last 20 years, I have found that most people at some point in their lives need a kind and friendly person whom they can trust, to help them to confront the things that are bothering them and who knows how to resolve situations that seem impossible to resolve. Sometimes it is a small area of a life that needs attention that can no longer be put off, or it could be a major issue or even their entire life. No one book or philosophy holds all the answers. And all of us need a skilled coach and mentor to help us to arrive where we want to go."

Wendy's own life has been an adventure rich in experiences prior to her opening her own Consulting and Coaching Practice. She says that the best part has been her being able to help others to be happier. Wendy has assisted medical personnel and rescue workers in the aftermath of a major earthquake in India, helped rescue workers with their trauma after terrorist bombings in the Middle East and worked with juvenile and adult criminal offenders in the USA and Mexico.

Ground Zero

A turning point in Wendy's life came whilst working as a Volunteer Grief Counsellor with the firemen at "Ground Zero". There at the World Trade Centre in New York during the rescue, immediately after the September 11 attack in 2001, Wendy realised while helping the firemen, just how precious happiness is and that each and every one of us deserves to live the life we truly want – not locked into situations or relationships that do not make us happy.

Health Research

Wendy spent 12 years professionally developing award winning post-graduate medical education programs for doctors. As the principal investigator she studied the effects of a Doctor’s communication upon the health of his patient. Her study involving 2,000 doctors and 60,000 patients proved her hypothesis that good communication from a Doctor can have a positive effect on the health of his patients and bad communication can hinder progress. She has personally saved hundreds of lives from suicide in her international Apollo Project with studies in 5 cities.

Cancer Prevention

In recent years Wendy has been researching the emotional and spiritual causes of cancer and how upsets in life can prevent us from responding to our medical treatment, no matter how good it may be.

Wendy now has a special coaching program for those who are suffering from cancer. This has been so successful worldwide that she has now written a book about how to prevent cancer in your family. This is coming out soon.

In Summary

Wendy says, "What I have learned from all of my experience is that men, women and children the world over are the ones actually creating their lives to be the way they are. It is futile to blame our current situation on anybody but ourselves, but then how do we repair the effects of the bad decisions we have made or the relationships we have not been happy in. Well the human spirit is unique in each person, and with somebody we can trust to guide and coach us, who can deeply understand us and our unique personal goals and purposes, we can find out what needs to be done, and just do it. There is no greater feeling than to know somebody understands you and you are not alone."

How does it work?

Sessions can be on Skype or in person.

The first introductory session is an interview of approximately one hour during which Wendy will find out all about your current situation and what you want to change. You can ask her any questions that you may have about how she can help you. She will tell you how many hours she estimates your personal program will take.

If you decide to go ahead, your coaching program begins with an interview. Wendy will find out all about your life from the time you were born up until now. She will also ask you about what sort of life you want to have. Each of your sessions is scheduled one at a time. You can see her once or even twice a week, depending on your need. Clients often say that these sessions are the best conversations they have ever had in their lives and with each session comes a lot of relief.

Your sessions, form a step-by-step way to help you to create a brand new life. As the days go by, the real fundamental underlying stops, barriers and problems that have actually been preventing you from being truly happy, start to peel away. It is often a lot more simple than you would think and the changes can be much faster to implement than you ever imagined. Some clients find also that the changes “just happen” in their life as they are doing the program with Wendy. Often they receive phone calls and emails from the key people in their lives that indicate that positive change has actually occurred in their lives too - it just does not seem possible to have happened but it has!

All email and phone enquiries are very welcome. You can request our New Client Information Package to be emailed to you.

If you prefer, you can come to Tasmania:

Wendy's consulting practice is located on the beautiful island of Tasmania, the southern most state of Australia. Many international and interstate clients fly in to Launceston airport from all over the world to meet with her in this pretty city. Launceston was built in the early 1800’s and is famous for it’s striking convict-built civic buildings, stone bridges, rows of whitewashed cottages and Georgian houses and pretty shops and cafes. Not to mention the delicious coffee and great food.

Nestled in a stunning valley on the banks of the Tamar River, a break away to Launceston to change your life could be combined with an idyllic holiday exploring picturesque villages and country markets and vineyards. Some clients even bring their family along and take the chance to wind down together.

Cancer Recovery Program

Wendy has been successfully coaching and encouraging people of all ages who are undergoing chemotherapy or have completed it or surgery for cancer, including babies and children.

She helps these people and their families, by addressing any underlying emotional upsets about their condition or situations in their life that may be impeding their recovery or response to their treatment.

Sometimes it is not clear to the person how significant past or current situations are to their health, but by careful and thorough friendly interviews, Wendy is able to get to the bottom of things and find out what needs attention – and fast!

This approach has been so much in demand that Wendy now offers a special life improvement program for those who are recovering from cancer.

Wendy is even able to travel to your home or to you in your hospital and welcomes any enquiries about this service.

She also gives lectures and workshops to health care professionals about how to help people emotionally during their chemotherapy treatment and subsequent recovery from cancer. This too has been so successful and in such demand, that Wendy has now has written a new book called “Cancer: the spiritual cause”, which will be available from her website in the Australian Summer of 2012.

Why Do We Get Sick?

March2012
Why do we get sick?

During the 1990’s the Australian government decided to raise the standard of medical care in Australia by expanding the whole continuing medical education field. Consequently, I spent 12 years in the 90’s developing and implementing many successful award-winning, post-graduate medical education programs in Australia for GP’s and for specialists.

One of the programs I developed during this time was in 1995-1996. It was a major behavioral intervention program, which enrolled 2,000 Australian doctors in a short and very basic communication skills course. I was even warned by some learned academics, prior to starting the program, that Doctors would be offended by the notion that they needed such a course! But it turned out to be a subject that they loved. The Doctors were trained by enthusiastic and friendly teachers, nurses and social workers, at small group tutorials and whilst very basic – listening skills, how to acknowledge, how to handle grief etc. and the whole thing was very well received and popular.

I decided before we started that I wanted to study this intervention and it’s effects, and so, as the principal investigator and with the help of a top-notch biostatistician and a fantastic team at a medical publishing company, we used a simple tool to survey them before and after the intervention. We also surveyed 60,000 of their patients. It was a mountain of data – all good. The Doctors and patients loved being part of the study and were very happy to complete the surveys.

But the bottom line is that my study proved my original hypothesis "Where a doctor's ability to communicate is improved, his patients show a better understanding of their health and are motivated to make positive lifestyle change. And the original purpose of a doctor to be a doctor can also be rehabilitated."

After this research I became fascinated with the simplicity and power of the basic purpose, and the value of effective communication in all relationships and the ability of these two things to create happiness, understanding and even good health. Gosh if you have ever been in a miserable marriage, a job you didn’t like or a block of flats you were not happy in you completely understand the simplicity and significance of this. Yet, why is it that people stay in these toxic situations long after they should have taken flight?

Over the last 20 years, I have been researching the effects of our own positive or negative attitude in life and especially when we are sick. I have personally explored hundreds of cases of acute and chronic illness, and the possible fundamental emotional causes of that sickness. In particular I have researched how in particular a person with a toxic personality being in our lives for a long time, or even suddenly appearing in our lives or environment, can actually infect us with a change in attitude and even the loss of our normal good fortune or health. There is a wealth of information out there about the toxic personality and how it can affect us. There is even some very good technology from self-help gurus the world over on how to combat the effects and get your life back to normal. I studied and have used a lot of it. But even armed with education about it and the tools to do it, people fail to get real and change situations that need to be changed.

Well the important thing to know is this - that people who wish you well and make you feel good are the ones to have around and people who seem to not be really on your team, make jokes at your expense or constantly give you bad news about yourself or life, and seem to make you feel bad, are definitely worth deleting from your mobile phone contacts list. You can find yourself in a marriage, a job or even part of a Church or Club that behaves more like the Spanish Inquisition or the Mafia and undermines your confidence and trust in people. Their presence can dull you down and make you unresponsive to good advice. Much like being in love with a vampire – we keep going back for more because of the “spell” they are weaving around us.

I have found in my 20 years of professionally helping people as a coach and consultant, everyone needs somebody to help them along. If you want to be more happy, ask a happy person.

Grateful acknowledgement and thanks is given to all the wonderful philosophers from Aristotle to Zeno, whose names are too numerous to mention, whose works I have studied over the last 50 years that have contributed to and assisted my work on the understanding of human spirit.

Cancer

Why does it sometimes not respond to treatment, why does it come back?

Cancer comes about because of an upset or a shock in the person's life in the area of family or a sexual relationship. You could have the best medical doctor, the best treatment in the world, the most successful operation etc, and much to your Doctor's dismay, and your own, the cancer comes back - or it never fully goes away.

Well, that is because the underlying cause is not physiological, it is emotional and in the specific area of sexual upsets, shocks and family upsets, such as an abortion that was never truly confronted as a problem in the person's past, and fully resolved emotionally. Or, no sex between a husband and a wife for many years and they never discussed it. Or one of them had an affair and the other suspects but they never discussed it, or resolved it. Or a child who moved away from home and never spoke again to the parents. Or a divorce when one wanted it and the other didn't and the one left behind has never recovered from the shock of it.

The scenarios that can lead to cancer are too numerous to cover in one article, I have come across hundreds of different versions of the same category of upset, but in every case of cancer that I have helped, these kinds of circumstances are common to them all.

The spiritual and emotional cause of cancer and how the body reacts to it is a fascinating phenomenon.

I have studied much of the available literature on the researched possible causes of cancer both physical and emotional and the impact of traditional and non-traditional methods of treatment on tumours. I have done my own extensive research with cancer patients all over the world since the early 1990’s until now and I have found that when lost communication or lost happiness are truly restored to the “family or the sexual relationship”, and any and all barriers to this restoration are confronted and overcome, such treatments as chemotherapy and surgery go much better.

It appears to be a major factor that when our negative attitude can be turned around to be a more positive one, we can then embark on our medical therapy with much more certainty. This work has become the subject of my new book due titled “Cancer: the spiritual cause, and how to be more certain your medical treatment will be successful” to be published in late 2012.

Grateful acknowledgement and thanks is given to all the wonderful philosophers from Aristotle to Zeno, whose names are too numerous to mention, whose works I have studied over the last 50 years that have contributed to and assisted my work on the understanding of human spirit.

Suicide

Print this page
March2012
Cancer

The Real Cause

It can be very hard to understand why somebody would try to commit suicide, or actually commit suicide.

Over the last 20 years I have saved literally hundreds of lives from suicide. And I have found that the real cause is not what you might think.

The reason somebody tries to kill himself or herself is actually not because of something that has been done to them. It is because they have done something they wish they had not done. They are overwhelmed by the guilt of this. If somebody were to come along and really get in very good, kind and sincere communication with them, somebody whom they felt they could truly trust, and is that person could ask them kindly what it was that was troubling them, they would be then safely be able to confess what they had done. Instantly upon doing that, there would be every chance that they would feel better and the suicidal feelings would go. That is what I have found. And the hundreds of people – Mums, Dads and friends – that I have trained in my weekend workshops around the world, have also found the same thing.

This is the cause of suicide. Having committed a moral transgression, and feeling so bad about it that you want to get away from all the reminders of it, and the responsibility of it.

So the alarming suicide rate in China being currently reported, or in Japan or in Finland or in Scotland is due to a breakdown in the moral code of that society. Common scenarios of booze drinking, or taking drugs or being promiscuous can lead eventually to a trend of a higher suicide rate. In areas with heavy gambling, there is heavy suicide for example.

If we were to go out into the society, just you or I, and find people and talk to them and teach them about the importance of a moral code and the concept that all of us have made mistakes, all of us have strayed, but to do this is human. The answer is to clean it up. To talk to somebody you can trust and tell them what you have done - no matter how big or small - and then take responsibility.

     
  • The man who suddenly kills himself has a secret. There was something he was hiding, something he had done that he was very ashamed of.
  • The student who kills himself has a secret. He has done something that he would rather die than have found out.
  • The wife who kills herself, and then afterwards we find out, too late, that she was having an affair and could not bear the guilt of it. Rather than face being found out, she decided to end it all, as she just could not live with that guilt any longer.

Suicide is not caused by what others have done to you. It is what you have done to others that is the problem.

And so it goes on. Moral transgressions are common to all human beings and a part of life. But the trap of having them and not confessing them to the person you have harmed, and not cleaning up your act and getting yourself ethical has a heavy price. Sadness, or even suicide.

So if you know somebody who is sad and suicidal, offer to help him or her. Let them talk to you. Don't pass judgment or give your opinion, just help them to clean it all up and take responsibility and quite simply you will have saved a life.

It's not rocket science. It's the truth. Get honest and straight and you will be happy.

I have saved literally hundreds and hundreds of lives from suicide by helping people to confront things that they have done that they feel bad about, and like magic, the terrible suicidal feelings go away.

Now depression – well that is another thing, quite different to suicide and I will write about that soon.

Wendy Honnor is the Founder of the successful Apollo Project, a unique drug-free, youth suicide prevention program that has saved many lives in pilots in Australia, the Netherlands, the USA and United Kingdom. This project has helped hundreds of young suicidal people, and their families and friends. Email Wendy from this website if you would like to invite her to speak to your community group about the true cause of suicide, about her amazing pilots in suicide prevention and how you can prevent it in your community.

Grateful acknowledgement and thanks is given to all the wonderful philosophers from Aristotle to Zeno, whose names are too numerous to mention, whose works I have studied over the last 50 years that have contributed to and assisted my work on the understanding of human spirit.

Karma

Print this page
December2011
Cancer

It works both ways...

Over the last 20 or more years I have helped hundreds and hundreds of people to have better lives. It's given me an amazing insight into what it is that makes lives miserable, and what makes lives happy, and my own observation confirms everything that I learned in my training.

You will find that everything that happened to you, you did something just like it to somebody else. That is actually the law of karma.

Well if you want to turn things around, you actually can. By finding out where all your bad karma is coming from, and with a little bit of help, reverse the flow. Maybe you already know where it started, or maybe you don't. But your good health, happiness and success for now and in the future, are entirely up to you, and how willing you are to confront what you have done, and what you need to do to fix it.

It can be fixed. No matter what it is.

It is human to make mistakes, but it is not so easy to fix them alone, without somebody you can trust and tell everything to. A Minister, a priest, a monk, a nun, your Mum or your Dad, or sister or brother, or a good friend - could be amongst the people you can trust. One way to fix things can be - you taking the time to sit down and tell that person these things that you feel bad about, that you have done, that have harmed others, or they may be things you didn't do, that you should have done. And once you have said it - you can then go about apologising to the person you harmed, and making right, the damage you did, and putting the past behind you.

     
  • People don't listen to me and are not interested in what I am saying. FIX UP TIMES YOU MADE PEOPLE FEEL YOU WERE NOT LISTENING TO THEM AND MADE THEM FEEL YOU WERE NOT INTERESTED IN THINGS THEY WERE SAYING.
  • I applied for a job and they didn't get back to me to tell me whether I had it or not. FIX UP TIMES SOMEBODY APPLIED FOR A JOB WITH YOU AND YOU DIDN'T GET BACK TO THEM.
  • My husband is cheating on me, and making me feel worthless and betrayed. FIX UP TIMES YOU CHEATED ON SOMEBODY AND MADE THEM FEEL WORTHLESS AND BETRAYED.

This is not rocket science, it's just applying the natural laws of the universe to your life and taking responsibility for what you have done, instead of looking at what others have done to you! Try it and let me know how you go. I would love to hear your successes!

I am available for lectures about “Karma – It Works Both Ways”. I have many fascinating stories of magical things that have happened to people after I have helped them to reverse the flow.

Grateful acknowledgement and thanks is given to all the wonderful philosophers from Aristotle to Zeno, whose names are too numerous to mention, whose works I have studied over the last 50 years that have contributed to and assisted my work on the understanding of human spirit.
