Clinical Hypnotherapy – How Can This Benefit You?
About The Mind
Time for Transformation? Are you wanting change in your life but don’t quite know where to begin?
It all begins with YOU, how you see yourself and the choices you make.
“You must be the change you wish to see in your world”.
~ Mahatma Gandhi
Our subconscious mind makes up 95-98% of our mind and contains a “mental movie” of everything that has happened in our lives. This is where our habits, behaviour, conditioning, feelings, phobias, etc., based on our past experiences, are stored. We unconsciously draw on those old, unwelcomed, ‘familiar’ beliefs & attitudes until new ones are introduced.
We ‘hypnotise’ ourselves daily with false beliefs or disempowering suggestions, such as “I’ll never be successful”, “I can’t….”, “I’m not good enough”, “I’m so fat”, “I’m not worthy”, “It’s impossible for me to quit smoking”, “I can’t sleep” and so on.
Our thoughts and self-talk or the language we use to communicate, are energy. They have power, and these form habits and patterns of behaviour.
To make powerful changes in our life, we must become conscious and aware of our thoughts and most especially, our ‘self-talk’.
“We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.”
~ Albert Einstein
This is where Hypnotherapy comes in!
Hypnosis & Hypnotherapy
What is Hypnosis?
Hypnosis is a natural state of deep relaxation which has been likened to ‘day dreaming’ or a ‘timeless feeling’, like the space we experience just before falling asleep. For example, have you ever become totally involved while watching a movie or driving on a familiar route, and when you arrive at your destination, you don’t quite remember part of the journey? These are all common examples of going into or being in a state of hypnosis.
As you enter into hypnosis, your conscious (or the analytic/critical) mind takes a well-deserved rest while your subconscious mind remains awake and receptive to new and empowering suggestions.
In this state, you are always in control.
Hypnosis has long been recognized as a direct and powerful means of introducing new and healthier beliefs, habits and behaviours which simultaneously create new neural pathways. It’s like creating a new foundation or blueprint for ourselves – a new neural map with more helpful and more empowering automated reactions towards how we handle our day-to-day stresses.
Hypnosis is completely safe and is medically approved and recognised by the Australian Medical Association as a useful and powerful complimentary therapy.
What is Hypnotherapy?
During hypnotherapy, the therapist communicates directly with the subconscious mind, getting to the cause or source of the issue, enabling the positive and lasting change you want to make. The power is within you!
As your hypnotherapist, my job is simply providing the expertise and tools to guide you and help you to find new ways to deal with problems and to change unwanted patterns of thinking and/or behaviour.
Power of Choice
Beyond the Obstacles …
How Hypnotherapy Works
Hypnotherapy is safe, drug-free and is a powerful way to discover the answers within. We all have the ability to change and to make empowering, responsible choices for ourselves.
Hypnotherapy entails the use of trance, safe & sensible suggestions and metaphor to change habits of thought, feelings and behaviours. It can also aid in general self-improvement through strategies such as non-clinical stress management. Your imagination, creativity and self-awareness are heightened, and you are more receptive to making those positive life changes that you’ve always dreamed of.

As your hypnotherapist, I am committed to working with you and helping you to open the door to your potential and success.
“Would I be asked to do something against my will?”
The answer is ‘No’. You will not do or say anything under hypnosis that goes against your will or your own beliefs. You are in control the whole time.
“Is a doctor’s referral necessary?”
Generally, not. There are, however, some presenting conditions that would require a doctor’s written consent. This would be determined when we speak prior to making an appointment.
“Can anyone be hypnotised?”
Most people can be – some more easily than others. The depth of relaxation that people reach in hypnosis varies. It is not necessary to achieve a very deep level of hypnosis to bring about a positive change of mind.
“How many sessions will I need?”
As every person is different, allow 2 to 5 sessions. This would be established at the initial consultation.
