On The Show - Sheryl Gottschall of UFORQ

1612882535040.pngSheryl Gottschall is President of UFO Research Queensland ( UFORQ ). She's always had an interest in things out of the ordinary. Starting in the the mid 1970s, she started exploring the field of near death experiences which deepened over the next decade. Then in 1988 she became a member of UFO Research Queensland and immediately joined the committee. She was introduced to the UFO subject in 1980 by my father-in-law who had seen contactee George Adamski speak at Brisbane City Hall in the 1960s.

As a child she would watch the stars at night and wonder if life existed elsewhere in the universe, and she read as many books about the 1950s & 1960s contactees as she could find. During the 1990s she became interested in alien abduction and attended a 1992 event in Brisbane featuring abduction researcher, Budd Hopkins, who was speaking there for the first time. After his visit many experiencers contacted UFORQ, so Sheryl and her late husband established the first UFORQ close encounter support group, and she's facilitated other groups since then as well.

Many of the witnesses she spoke with during the 1990s sought hypnosis for their missing time experiences but Sheryl was dissatisfied with the hypnosis techniques used to recall their memories. She wanted to understand hypnosis more deeply so she enrolled in a one year course which she completed in 2000 and has worked as a professional clinical hypnotherapist since.
