Hypnotherapy can be described as an altered state of awareness that bypasses the conscious mind, places us in a focused state, and allows changes to be made in relation to issues and behaviour patterns such as smoking, overeating and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
If you’re curious about hypnotherapy Melbourne has only a few qualified professionals who are highly trained in the specific language, semantics, and protocols required to bypass the critical mind and create a direct portal to the subconscious.
And, since you’ve landed on this page, it’s clear that you’ve done your research – and you’ve come to the right place!
Clinical Hypnosis has been used for hundreds of years to help people with weight loss, eating disorders, anxiety, PTSD and so much more in Melbourne, Australia. It’s not like other therapies such as counselling, where you have to spend a lot of time (and money) on a weekly basis to see any tangible results. So many of my clients have been through the ‘psychotherapy revolving door’. They’re tired of talking about their problems; they just want them gone! So you’ll be pleased to know that the average number of sessions required for any given issue is usually only about three
I’ve been a professional consulting hypnotherapist Melbourne for a long time and one thing I’ve learnt is that everybody is different. You have to treat each case individually and tailor the treatment according to each person’s needs. But don’t just take my word for it; watch Kerri’s testimonial to see how she overcame her obstacles by working very closely with me.
Kerri initially wanted to lose weight, but she was far too overwhelmed. Since being overwhelmed is a major barrier to weight loss, we worked on this first. After that, she was ready to tackle the weight.
You might have tried hypnotherapy services in various suburbs around Melbourne before and been disappointed – but remember; all hypnotherapists are not equal.
During these difficult times, it’s essential to take care of your emotional health, as well as your physical health. More and more people are feeling stuck and finding it difficult to cope as we charter the unknown territory of this pandemic.
Stress, anxiety and uncertainty can lead to unhealthy habits such as overeating, drinking too much alcohol or turning to other substances to ease the pain.
As a mental healthcare practitioner, I’m available to work with people remotely via video, or in-person if appropriate. My unique combination of counselling and hypnosis allows you to address any issue you are facing, giving you practical tools and techniques that you can use at home to ease anxiety, de-stress and take control of your life – even in the toughest times.
My unique combination of counselling and hypnosis Melbourne allows you to address any issue you are facing, while giving you practical tools and techniques that you can use at home to ease anxiety, de-stress and enjoy a sense of wellbeing – even in the toughest times.
If you’re struggling emotionally, take the time to reach out to a professional for the support and guidance you need.
I pay attention to what you’re telling me; specifically the underlying messages that give me clues as to what is really causing the problem – and then I design your treatment program to fix it.
For example, let’s say you’re trying to lose weight. It’s not enough just to give you shallow generic suggestions like ‘you will eat healthy foods’. This might work initially but the results won’t last.
The fact is: if you’re not eating healthy foods, there’s usually a reason why – it’s my job to diagnose the reasons and devise a solution that not only works but results in a permanent positive change.
As you’ve probably already figured out, there are a lot of hypnotherapists to choose from; so which therapist is the right one for you?
The only way to find the answer is to dig deep and make sure your therapist has the skills and experience required to help you. That means calling your Melbourne hypnotherapy clinic, asking lots of questions and not being afraid to ask for a detailed analysis as to how the therapist will address your issue or condition.
When it comes to hypnotherapy, research is required, because there is no legal requirement for a person to have a formal, government accredited qualification. In other words, anybody can legally set up a Melbourne hypnotherapy clinic. So when you’re on the internet looking around, these are the questions you should ask:
You should only choose a hypnotherapist who has a government accredited qualification. After all, do you really want someone who has done a weekend course in hypnosis messing with your mind?
Hypnosis has been used for centuries to assist with a myriad of issues and help people overcome obstacles. It’s especially effective because it hones in on the specific causes of each problem rather than just the presenting issues; these causes are sometimes not even known to the client.
In other words, hypnotherapy is a holistic modality that addresses all areas of the issue, going right underneath the hood to remove all belief systems and mindset blocks that created the issue in the first place. Here are just a few of the issues we can treat:
If you have something you want to work on but you’re not sure if hypnosis is appropriate, give me a call or send an email and I will tell you if I can help.
When you’ve been a clinical hypnotherapist as long as I have, you see some pretty incredible results. People often ask me ‘what is your success rate?’ It’s a fair question – but one I don’t have the answer to.
I don’t have the resources to conduct this kind of research and I would suggest that if any Melbourne hypnotherapist tells you their ‘success rate’ you ask to see the research behind this figure (which has probably been plucked out of thin air).
What I CAN tell you is all the testimonials on my website are real, and were written by real people. I have a thriving practice that has been strong since 2003 – and I let my results speak for themselves. In addition:
Having hypnosis is a very personal experience, so it’s really important that you choose the right Melbourne hypnotherapist for your specific needs.

Yes, it’s easy to be hypnotised. We spend about 90% of our day in a state of trance, without even being aware of it. For example: daydreaming, getting lost in a good book and immersing yourself in a good movie are all examples of going into trance. Read more…
Nobody can gain control of your mind. You can’t be made to do anything you don’t want to do by a hypnotist. Your hypnotherapist’s job is to assist you in making positive life changes. The process requires your full co-operation and nothing is said or done without your permission Read more…
Melbourne clients may find hypnosis to be extremely effective for weight loss, quitting smoking, conquering anxiety/depression, boosting self-esteem and overcoming phobias such as public speaking.

The cost for your hypnotherapy session varies from individual therapist, but most prices in Melbourne range from $170.00 to $250.00. A higher price does not necessarily mean you’ll get a better result, so be sure to do your research and ask lots of questions. Read more…
