Dr Dinah Blunt

Anaesthetist - St Vincents Northside Hospital

Dinah is a specialist anaesthetist in private practice based at St Vincents Northside Hospital in Brisbane.

Her concern for the extremely anxious perioperative patient led her to train as a hypnotherapist, recently gaining her diploma of Clinical Hypnosis. Apart from managing anxiety, phobias, addictions, and chronic pain, she also uses hypnosis skills to treat PTSD, which can be a consequence of domestic violence. Support for Women’s Legal Service aligns perfectly with this part of her work.

Dinah is also a certified life coach with a special interest in coping with professional burnout and that elusive work-life balance. As a foundation member of the Australian Society of Lifestyle Medicine, she is a champion of healthy living, and jumped at the chance to jig around on stage for a worthy cause. She reckons that being involved in Dancing CEO’s provides a fabulous antidote for burnout.
