What is Hypnosis?
“Hypnosis is a state of mind in which the critical faculty of the human mind is bypassed, and selective thinking established.” The critical faculty of your mind is that part which passes judgment. Contrary to what some people believe, hypnosis is a state of consciousness (awareness) – not a state of unconsciousness. Studies have found that the brain waves of an individual who is in a hypnotic trance are very similar to a person who is just about to fall asleep. If you remember how it feels to be very calm, very warm, with your body feeling heavy and relaxed, just before you fall asleep: that’s how it feels to be in a hypnotic trance. It’s very pleasant indeed. When you are in the hypnotic state, you are in a relaxed state of body and mind and your powers of concentration are usually increased. You can talk, feel, hear, taste and smell.
Hypnotherapy is one of the most common aids to psychotherapy or any other type of behavioural counselling. Legitimate Clinical Hypnotherapy practiced by a qualified professional is not the same process as that performed on stage or by other untrained hypnotherapists. The purpose of hypnosis as a therapeutic process is to help the client understand and gain more control over their behaviour, emotions and physical well-being. By assisting the client accessing unconscious resources, power, and wisdom, the hypnotherapist then through the use of creative visualisation, talking therapy, and the power of hypnotic trance, works directly with the client’s subconscious mind, to allow an individual to install new, more positive thoughts, feelings and habits. Thus, accelerating the process of positive change and helping the client to create permanent results and a healthy and happy lifestyle.
What is a Clinical Hypnotherapist?
A clinical hypnotherapist is someone who has been professionally trained in using the art of hypnosis together with therapeutic interventions to bring about improvement or healing in a variety of clinical conditions and negative behaviours. This involves so much more than simple deep relaxation; it requires professional training in a variety of therapeutic modalities.
A well-trained hypnotherapist will be able to apply knowledge and training to establish and manage the subconscious cause of negative behaviours such as fears, phobias, anxieties and addictions and is trained to identify and deal with resistance to change. Thus, a qualified clinical hypnotherapist, trained in clinical intervention, is very much more than a simple hypnotherapist who has not undergone accredited formal training.
We are both highly skilled Clinical Hypnotherapist specialising in the field of Quantum DNA Repatterning. We hold a Government Accredited Advanced Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy, Psychotherapy and Neuro-Linguistic Programming from the Australian College of Clinical Hypnotherapy, and we are on the register of The Australian Society of Clinical Hypnotherapists. We are also a registered Private Health Fund Provider. We hold a Senior First Aid Certificate and a Clearance for Working with Children Cover.
In conjunction with Clinical Hypnotherapy we use a combination of other therapies including Quantum DNA Repatterning, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, NLP, E.M.D.R., E.F.T., in a unique blend to meet each client’s needs. Also, the client will be taught self-help tools which they can use in their daily life to help them to relax, or to help them feel confident, depending on what they need. No two sessions are the same.
By getting to the cause of the problem, positive changes happen which empower the client to approach positively their future with the beliefs and tools that they need to facilitate the desired change quickly and efficiently.
Can anyone be hypnotised?
Yes if they want to be. You can’t be forced to go into a trance. You will never accept a suggestion that your belief system does not accept or agree with. We all have the capacity to enter into a hypnotic trance in our own way. If you’ve ever found yourself becoming ‘lost’ in a book, or in a movie, or found that you’ve become so deeply lost in thought during a car journey that you don’t really remember making the trip, you’ve been in a trance state.
How can Clinical Hypnotherapy Help Me?
We all struggle from time to time to make positive changes in our lives. Some roadblocks prevent the fulfillment of life’s potential, in health, career, relationships and areas of personal development. We all have the power already inside of us to make those changes, but sometimes we need a little help to harness that power and make it work for us.
The subconscious mind is a powerful part of our mental landscape, but ordinarily we make little-directed use of it. By working with a qualified Clinical Hypnotherapist you can quickly start to feel better and create the desired changes you want.

How many session will I need?
How many sessions are necessary will depend on your condition. Quite often the initial condition or issue can be cleared in the first meeting, however; we usually recommend at least one follow-up session to clear any other influences that may cause a relapse. Conditions such as stopping smoking, weight loss and phobias are relatively straightforward as long as there is no underlying trauma. Some conditions may take a little longer depending on the length and severity of the condition. Each person is an individual and requires a unique blend of therapy to achieve the best results in the shortest amount of sessions.
What about Confidentiality?
Hypnotherapy sessions are relaxed and confidential, with time to talk and share problems and thoughts, as well as time to relax. We offer an extra half hour at the first session so you can take your time to ask questions and make yourself comfortable. As Clinical Hypnotherapists, we are sometimes requested to deal with confidential and challenging details of people’s lives, which is why everything that happens during a session is treated with strict confidence.
