Clinical Hypnotherapy Melbourne
Hypnosis is a relaxed state of awareness that bypasses your conscious mind and allows you to change unwanted behaviours such as emotional eating problems, smoking and panic disorders.
Although many people want to try hypnotherapy, Melbourne has only a few qualified practitioners who understand the subtle semantics and techniques required to bypass the critical mind and create a direct portal to the subconscious.
So congratulations on doing your research; you’ve come to the right place!
Clinical Hypnosis has been used for hundreds of years to help people with weight loss, anxiety, PTSD and so much more in Melbourne, Australia.
It’s not like traditional 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.
Tried And Tested Hypnosis Techniques That Work
I’ve been a professional consulting hypnotherapist in 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 hypnosis in various suburbs around Melbourne before and been disappointed – but remember; all hypnotherapists are not equal as you will soon discover when you continue to read on.
Your Emotional and Physical Health Are Crucial
During these difficult times, it’s essential to take care of your emotional health, as well as your physical heath. More and more people are 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 that is appropriate.
My unique combination of counselling and hypnosis 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.
My Clinical Hypnosis Programs Work Because:I don’t just read out a generic script while you close your eyes – I speak to your subconscious in a language it understands, using therapy that hones in on one issue at a time.
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 not – it’s my job to diagnose the reasons and devise a solution that not only works, but has a permanent positive impact.
How To Find The Best Professional Consulting Hypnotherapist
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 practitioners, asking lots of questions and not being afraid to ask for a detailed analysis as to how, specifically, 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 shop and advertise themselves as a hypnotherapist. So when you’re on the internet looking around, these are the questions you should ask:
- Do they have an accredited qualification?
- How long have they been practising?
- How many clients do they treat per year?
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?
How Can a Hypnotherapy Expert Help You?
Hypnosis has been used for centuries to assist with a myriad of issues. It’s especially effective because it hones in on the specific causes of each problem; 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 beliefs and mindset blocks that created the issue in the first place. Here are just a few of the issues we can treat:
- Sleep Issues;
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.
A Solid Foundation of Satisfied Clients Since 2003
When you’ve been practising clinical hypnosis as long as I have, you see some pretty amazing transformations. 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:
- I have a government accredited qualification;
- I have treated over 10,000 clients during my career;
- There are many testimonials from satisfied clients throughout this website

Can Anybody Be Hypnotised?
