Ask Dr. Bunny. Letting life live you? Kathy Murphy, guest.

Kathy Murphy, life coach, writer, inspirational speaker, and owner of The Rising Tide, joins Dr. Bunny to discuss letting life live you, and what that actually means.  Kathy shares the story of how she came to realize that listening to her inner voice had much better results than trying to direct & control things – and it was such a beautiful unfolding!

Kathy tells us how she helps her clients call upon the ‘greater energy of the world’ to achieve their goals with ease and grace, instead of struggle and stress.

This is such a delightfully uplifting interview. Tune in and prepare to be inspired!

About Kathy Murphy:

Unfortunately, too many women leaders fail to recognize that for us to be an effective leader of others in our work and life, we must first be our most powerful self-leader.

I understand you have tried several types of self-help programs. You have tried meditation to help you find peace and deal with stress, worry, and anxiety. You have also found there is never enough time or energy to do all that your circumstances require, let alone get any time for yourself.

If this describes where you’re currently at, as a leader of your business, or business you work for, please know there is hope…

There is a way to do life differently, think different, see different and navigate with ease and grace. It is your true nature.

As an Energetic life coach, I am passionate about waking women up to new choices and possibilities that they already have inside. I love empowering women to overcome the greatest challenges that are preventing them from working so hard at work and home, to seeing a way for them to be a more powerful leader in their own lives and as a result leading their employees and family in a whole new way.

Over the past four years and a lifetime of being just like you, working hard, and doing it all, I have perfected a totally different way to help women stop managing thoughts, and recognize them for what they are. Your thoughts shape who you are. You can work hard at it to change them, or you can see for yourself how we create our life experiences and a better life you desire shows up immediately. When you realize who you really are, not who you think you are, you become your most powerful self-leader. Everyone you lead steps up and does the same for themselves by your leadership.

My name is Kathy Murphy and my desire is to provide you with an easy way to become your most powerful self-leader. I have a movement and business called The Rising Tide. I am a certified health/life/NLP coach, author, singer, songwriter, surfer, inspirational speaker, and mom. I have previous experience as a peace officer/firefighter/supervisor/manager/ and spent 9 years in a political position. I have survived and thrived through cancer, lyme disease, RA, loss of family, loss of job, divorce, and anxiety. It is my life’s purpose to help you to Rise and Thrive.

For those willing to see something new, there is hope. And the fact that you are reading this tells me there’s something inside of you telling you there’s more. Fortunately for you, there is. I would love to connect with you!

Ask Dr. Bunny. Freedom From Diabesity? Diane Achatz, guest.

Diane Achatz, Transformational Health & Life Coach, joins Dr. Bunny to discuss her unique approach to helping her clients with Diabetes. Diane shares her personal story of how she has been affected by Type 2 Diabetes, first with her family members, and then with herself. Once she was diagnosed, she began making small changes in her life that made a huge difference!

Diane tells us about her journey to becoming a health coach and the true joy she gets from helping others.

So, what is Diabesity?  If you are diabetic and overweight or obese, you suffer from Diabesity. Diane empowers people to find freedom from diabesity, with simple habit changes to help them lower blood glucose levels and improve their A1C.

This is a truly inspirational interview with a remarkable woman.  Don’t miss it!

About Diane Achatz:

After the diabetes diagnosis, I started to track everything I ate, and carefully monitored carbohydrates. I joined an online diet and healthy living community, attended diabetes education classes and learned everything I could about living with my conditions, and improving my health.

I stretched myself out of my comfort zone and signed up for Zumba classes and began a weight training program in addition to walking and using an elliptical trainer and vertical climber at home.

The important thing to remember is that you’re never too old to make the small, manageable lifestyle changes that bring you to your health and fitness goals.  If not now, when?

When I was able to improve my health to the point that my doctor actually told me he was proud of me, I knew I could help others improve too!

I believe whole, clean food and exercise is the best medicine!  In addition to keeping my blood sugar levels stable, regular exercise in the form of weight training and cardio helps me manage weight and Fibromyalgia.

It took a lot to convince me that exercise would help with Fibromyalgia symptoms.  It hurt to exercise and besides, I was always so tired!  Now I’m a believer!  I want to reach out to everyone suffering from excess weight, fibromyalgia, diabetes, and other health concerns and assure them that if I can do it, anyone can do it.

I especially love that helping transform others enables me to transform as well.  That synergy is a beautiful thing!

About The HR Firm:

We help you grow your business by keeping you compliant!

Many companies don’t recognize the vital role that Human Resources plays until a crisis occurs. They are not aware of the complexities, rules and compliance issues that arise  when employees are involved. The road may be paved with good intentions but many well-meaning employers are snared by regulations they are not aware of. Good intentions will not save you from the demanding and regulated environment in which we do business today. Having strong HR programs in place will.

Many companies also lack the necessary HR staff or experience required  to accomplish their goals. The HR Firm will provide you with the HR capabilities, experience and knowledge needed to achieve success for your business and your employees.

We look forward to working with you!

SNAP! Unhypnotizing Hypnotherapy. Attention? Intention? Get a handle on your thoughts!

Shelley Stockwell-Nicholas, founder of the International Hypnosis Federation, joins Dr. Bunny at HypnoThoughts Live 2020 in Las Vegas, Nevada, to discuss attention, intention, hypnosis, and so much more!

Due to Covid-19, HypnoThoughts Live was a bit different this year, but both Dr. Bunny and Shelley enjoyed it immensely. Shelley tells us why she feels like she’s with her best friends when she’s at HypnoThoughts Live.

Shelley also shares her tips on how to wade thru all the data that is being pushed at us right now.  She says we need to not only pay attention, we also need to have intention.  Shelley explains exactly what that means, and how to get a handle on your thoughts.

Join us for an informative, uplifting, and fun interview!

About the International Hypnosis Federation:

Since 1994, the IHF has promoted acceptance of the diverse inter-discipline use of hypnosis with a broad range of applications. We are unique among organizations because our members and those interested in self-improvement and mind mastery often choose additionally specialty recognition and join our various related hypnosis divisions: integrative and stand-alone medical and dental work, mindfulness, neuro-linguistics (NLP}, coaching, guided imagery, motivation, conflict resolution, art therapy, spiritual counseling, entertainment and research. We offer referrals, professional certification training, workshops, conferences and networking opportunities for practitioners and the public. We encourage interaction with other disciplines, clinicians and researchers who use hypnosis in their work.


Your professional hypnotist evokes a natural mind state where you easily take on beneficial suggestions and ideas and do away with limiting or hurtful attitudes and behaviors.

With hypnosis and self-hypnosis, you’re motivated to achieve worthwhile results, make contact with your wisest self and tap your full potentials and talents.

Researchers prove again and again that hypnosis benefits people mentally, emotionally, energetically, physically and neurologically. (For a comprehensive fifty-page document of scientific studies call 310-541-4844 or email your request to:


To select a qualified hypnosis practitioner take heed: A professional hypnotist, hypnotherapist, hypno-coach, hypno-counselor and wellness provider has training and experience in hypnosis to help you achieve your specific goals and interests.

Just because someone is licensed or credentialed in another discipline (I.e. medicine, therapy, dentistry, psychology, mindfulness, social work, or nursing) does not mean they have studied hypnosis or are capable of using it as an adjunct to their other work. Only a small percentage of licensed helpers take time to be certified in hypnosis

Hypnosis, Hypnotherapy, Hypno-Counseling and Hypnosis-Coaching are stand-alone certified professions. Professional Hypnotists generally have hundreds of hours of training in hypnosis.

To reduce confusion ask yourself, “Does this practitioner have the expertise in hypnosis to help me reach my goals?” And “Is there a sense of rapport with them?”

Members of the International Hypnosis Federation adhere to a fine code of ethics (available for your review at and regulations of their places of practice. If you have further questions regarding whom to consult for your well-being, feel free to call IHF at 310 541-4844.

Ask Dr. Bunny. Life Stories? Bill Frank, guest.

Bill Frank joins Dr. Bunny to discuss a very special project he is doing called the Life Story Program, at Livingston Memorial Visiting Nurse Association and Hospice.

Being on hospice care means that a person generally has six months, or less, to live.  These patients have a lifetime of stories to share, and those stories are incredibly important to their families, friends, and future generations, so Bill works with hospice patients to write their life stories for posterity.

Bill takes us through the process that he uses to capture these stories, and tells us about some interesting patients he has spoken with. He also shares info about the “5 Wishes worksheet” that Livingston Memorial has available, which is very helpful to people who are on hospice, as well as those who are not, and how it can add so much value to people’s lives.

Ventura County Museum of History is always looking for life stories, so life stories can be donated to their audio collection, if the person so desires.  This is wonderful for future generations to learn more about what life was like during a certain time period – the Depression, 9/11, Covid, etc.  It truly enhances the fabric of our county to have these kinds of personal stories from the people who lived here, as well as a very special gift for someone’s family.

Tune in for a wonderful interview, full of great information!
