Our Mission

To allow women to break free of the old belief systems that have been holding them back from living the life they desire and deserve Imagine being able to uncover some of the hurts and stuck beliefs that are stopping you from reaching your full potential. Imagine discovering what that actually is! We know that the human experience is not the most straight forward and we have all had our share of 'struggle'. We aim to guide you through the undoing of this and to encourage you to know that YOU ARE ENOUGH and you deserve to reach for the stars! The subconscious mind is extremely powerful and is so often in control of our thoughts, emotions and actions. The tools and techniques that we teach are designed to make a permanent change and empower you to take back control.

Our Story

EasyLife was founded by Lesley Evans in 2016 and aimed to show her clients that they were deserving of an easy life full of everything that they enjoyed. To aid in their transformation journey, Lesley started off as 'EasyLife Hypnosis' offering Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) services alongside hypnosis and the Virtual Gastric Band technique. In 2018 Lesley, together with her daughter Lynska, launched EasyLife Retreats to really make that extra difference in peoples lives. They felt that it was time to encourage that much needed nurturing and change in the lives of over worked, stressed out women and for them to show up on a larger platform and share their wisdom.

They are here to create a safe space for you to sit with the things you have been hiding from and to learn to love them. Let’s start re-discovering all the things that light you up; your passions, your strengths and even your weaknesses. Let’s start exceeding your limits

Lesley Evans

Clinical Hypnotherapist and EFT Practitioner
"I started on the road of wellness in my early 20s after having my first daughter. I found myself very unwell and this started me off down the path of self-discovery and healing while looking at all areas of health and wellness. I found I was curious about how the body, mind and spirit work together and in 2003 I qualified as a Clinical Hypnotherapist & EFT practitioner. I have completed training in various modalities and in 2006 I started running workshops to share the knowledge that I had gained with others. I look at all of my clients as a holistic beings and this has lead to positive and life changing results for them. My passion is to assist others to break through blocks, clear old patterns and beliefs and be free to live the life they desire. With two marriages resulting in 3 beautiful adult daughters and two grandchildren, I have had my challenges along the way and a variety of human experiences, just like anyone. I have learnt to transform these events and experiences to my benefit by using all the powerful tools I have. I got the chance to make a choice to change, my life will never be the same and neither will yours."

Lynska Ramsteijn

EFT and Wellness Advocate
"I chose to embark on my own personal development journey at the age of 19 when I suffered an infection in my spine. I was bed ridden for a few months and really felt like this was a time for a new start, a refresh of everything that had been my life up until that point. Over the years I have continued to self-reflect, to re-evaluate and to look at who I am and where I am heading. This has lead to finding better ways to be me, get the job done and to make my own mark. I am a big picture thinker who loves learning. I have a passion for teaching and bringing ideas to the table. I have found myself in various leadership roles throughout my life, starting at the age of 3 when I became an ‘older sister’. Being the eldest child has brought out my natural desire for responsibility and connection, this has meant that I hold strong values and work from integrity and authenticity. I have pursued many creative fields, and more recently have embarked on the formal training of Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT). This variety has allowed me to develop my creative thinking and apply it to every area of my life. I enjoy being the person who can see how all the dots connect and my desire has always been to use this to assist others in making their lives the best they can be. I hope to guide you out of your comfort zone and into a life that is more fulfilled and full of purpose."

EFT is an easy to use self-help tool that involves both the body and the mind to assist in transforming the way we feel, as well as addressing how our emotions affect us physically. 

By using a series of acupressure points on the head, face, hands and body we ‘tap’ on them to assist in activating our body’s natural energy field and meridian system. We can use EFT to look at past events, to help identify thoughts that can be affecting our experiences in our daily lives and once highlighted we can work to empower ourselves to make changes for the better.

EFT is designed to calm down the emotional part of our brain ( the limbic brain) in times of stress by releasing calming chemicals into the body to combat the “Fight or Flight” response. Our “Fight or Flight” response is kicked into gear by our survival brain (the brain stem) when we are exposed to threats or situations that we perceive as alarming. Often the pressures of our modern day living are causing us to be in this state on an almost permanent basis. EFT can teach us how to calm ourselves down in any situation. 

Research has shown that EFT works to form new neural pathways in the brain, re-wiring old thought patterns and beliefs. EFT is great for dealing with anxiety, trauma, fear, grief, and stress while promoting relaxation, creativity, motivation, confidence and peace within yourself.

Hypnotherapy is a simple technique that consists of varying suggestions or therapy given to you while you are in a state of hypnosis. Clients would best describe hypnosis as an increased level of relaxation, almost like you could fall asleep. Not surprisingly we experience hypnosis often just before we fall asleep and can still be in a hypnotic state when we first wake up in the morning.

Although you will experience a deep state of rest, similar to meditation, you are not trying to clear your mind – instead the therapist works with you to give positive suggestions which you will focus on. This will assist you with achieving your goals through the subconscious.

You are aware and in control at all times while working to re-programme your brain to better control any destructive habits that may be standing in the way of your hopes and goals.

Visualisation works to calm the body while producing images in our mind of the things that we want to achieve, the results we want to create and how we would like to see our life going forward. It can be similar to watching a movie, with you as the star – happy and in love with the life you are leading.

Mediation and Relaxation work to calm down our mind and body and to truely get in touch with who we are, what makes us happy and allows the space to create and relax.

All are powerful tools for attracting the things you want out of life, creating the feeling that you already have them and aligning with the law of attraction.

Retreat Preparation

Flights and accommodation are not included in the cost of EasyLife Retreats. It is the responsibility of the participant organise this. Air New Zealand and Jetstar alongside Sounds Air fly into Nelson and offer a variety of fares. Apex, Hertz, OmegaThrifty and Budget, are rental car agencies that operate from the Nelson airport. There are also Taxi and Shuttle bus options.  

We recommend you bring comfortable clothes for use during the workshops, warm clothes and walking shoes for any outdoor activities, swimming attire to enjoy the pools at Kimi-Ora and any form of note taking equipment that suits you.

Come with an open mind. Think about the areas that you would like to see change and write them down to bring along with you. For any movement to happen in personal development there can be a need to unsettle ourselves in order to get to the root cause. Be prepared to explore and know that you will be guided in a safe way. 

Bookings

All prices on the website are shown in $NZD and will be charged as such
