A highly qualified, experienced and successful professional with a colourful history who walks her talk
In business since 1970, Tracie has owned or run a range of operations, including health clubs, shops, hairdressing salons, a dance and cabaret company and selling luxury cars to the US, as well as being involved in property investment. Told as a teenager by a medical professional that “people like you” were not suited to careers in the caring professions, she has devoted the past 20 years to helping others become the best they can be, as well as championing equal rights for all. She is the author of several books including Trans-X-U-All: the Naked Difference (1997), Investigating Stage Hypnosis (1998), Sex, Gender and Sexuality: 21st Transformations (1999), Self-Hypnosis for Life (2000), Finding the Real Me (2004), Trans People in Love (2008), Inspiration for Survive and Prosper: How to Recover from a Crisis or Trauma Fast (2013). “I grew up in absolute poverty, with little education and was abandoned and sexually abused as a child. Because I was transsexual, I was locked up in institutions before the age of 15. As an adult, I’ve experienced rape and discrimination. Yet I’ve also been lucky to meet the right people at the right time in my life and worked year after year building my skill sets to become highly successful in my careers and as a business woman. “In 2012 I got Post Traumatic Stress Disorder at the age of 57 after my partner of 20 years left me. I had to use all my psychotherapeutic skills and techniques to get through it and I created a program to help others survive crisis and go on to prosper. I teach people that it’s not where you come from in life that determines your future experience but what you do now to make the present and future good for you. You can open your mind and learn – even in the most challenging times. And you don’t have to spend months, years or decades suffering. Being a hypnotist, I help people to change their mindset and behaviours – fast – for long-lasting, deep transformation .” – Tracie O’Keefe
