frequently asked questions
how can i help you?
My role is to support your natural ability to heal and evolve. As a Behavioural Hypno-therapist I work with you to overcome obstacles to your health and wellbeing. We work together through a proven clinical process to achieve clarity, reset the autonomic nervous system, re-write self-defeating subconsicous programming and create a supportive process of self-healing.
Using a variety of modalities I support the release of blockages (mental, emotional & physical) to reactivate the natural flow of vibrant life force energy within you.
You and I work closely together to bring awareness to, and release what no longer serves you, restoring your mind, and body to its natural state of wellbeing.
Each session is designed to support the loving reintegration of all aspects of yourself, allowing you to tap into the fullness of your own potential.
It is time for you to awaken to a fuller expression of yourself and line up with the life you know you deserve.
how does hypnotherapy work?
As a Clinical Hypno-psychotherapist I work with you to clearly identify sub-conscious progams that your mind uses to filter your experience of life. These sub-conscious programs are most often created during our formative years (early childhood) and during physically and/or emotionally charged experiences that occurr at any time in our life.
Every challenge you experience in life is a gift. It is your personal invitation to evolve. Unfortunately the truth is that in many cases outdated sub-conscious programs govern how we perceive and respond to ourselves, others and situations in life until we chose to re-write this narrative going on in our minds at both the consious and subconsoius level.
So what makes hypnotherapy so fast & effective?
- Beta (14-40Hz). This is the normal waking consciousness and reasoning state. It is associated with a heightened state of alertness, logic and critical reasoning, and when in the highest frequencies it translate into stress, anxiety, fear and restlessness.
- Alpha (7.5-14 Hz). Alpha waves are present in deep physical and mental relaxation, it is the state we enter just prior to falling asleep adnd immediately upon waking. We also experience Alpha state during a daydream, or in light meditation. It is an optimal time to program the mind for success and it also heightens your imagination, visualisation memory, learning and concentration. It is the gateway to your subconscious mind, and the voice of your intuition, which becomes clearer and more profound the closer you get to 7.5Hz.
- Theta (4-7.5Hz). Theta waves are present during hypnosis, deep meditation and light sleep, including the all-important REM dream state. It is the realm of your subconsciousness.
It is the alpha-theta border, from 7Hz to 8 Hz, which is the optimal range for visualization, re-programming the mind and using the creative power of your mind to consciously create your reality. You are still conscious of your surroundings however, but your body is in deep relaxation.
This state (often referred to as the trance state) is a proven and holistic way to produce permanent life changing results. Hypnotherapy paired with traditional Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a solution focused hypnotherapy that gets to the heart of the matter quickly and overcoming numerous barriers to general health and wellbeing.
what can hypnotherapy treat?
There is now proven scientific research and strong evidence for the use of Clinical Hypnotherapy in the treatment of:
- Lack of confidence
- Sleep issues
- Smoking cessation
- Weight loss
- Pain management & injuries
- Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
- Stress Management
- Anger Management
Many people have also experienced significant improvements in the following areas through the use of Clinical Hypnotherapy and by supporting the healing process of the ‘whole person’ on a holistic level:

- Phobias; fear of heights, public speaking, arachnaphobia, confined spaces, etc…
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Confidence & self esteem

As we reprogram our subconcious mind with ‘thoughts and beliefs’ we ‘choose’ we are then free to experience and respond in more empowered ways in ALL areas of our lives;
- Physical health
- Mental & emotional wellbing
- Healthy relationships (friends, family & professional)
- Educational, career, business & financial success
- Spiritual growth & personal development
I am here to remind you that you already hold everything you need within you. I create and hold space for you to reconnect with your own internal wisdom, facilitating proven processes for releasing what no longer serves your highest good.
At various stages along our journey, we are encouraged to shed our old skin and allow new ways of being to emerge that serve our evolution. This is the natural cycle of life.
Through this process of release, we naturally open up space within us that strengthens our whole being; our physical body, our emotional wellbeing, our inspiration, creativity, confidence and our ability to live a joyful life.
how many sessions till i see results?
No two people are alike, so it largly depends on what you are seeking treatment for and how you respond to therapy. However, clients typically experience lasting results within 4-8 sessions.
To make things simpler I offer packages to treat some of the more common challenges. You'll find these packages specify how many sessions are required and are offered at a reduced package rate.
what can I expect during my session?
Most people will just feel like they’re in a relaxing meditative state. Alpha brain wave state is the same state we all enter just before we fall asleep and immediately upon waking. In this state you are still able to recall and remember everything, you’re simply very relaxed.
You may also experience Theta brain wave state. Theta brain waves can also occur when you’re awake, but in a very deeply relaxed state of mind; a state that some may describe as “autopilot.” Kind of like when you are driving your car and you can’t recall the last few streets you just drove down.
When in these states you’ve managed to relax and focus your conscious mind and we can work directly with the subconscious mind. It is here we can make the positive changes that you’ve expressed while we created your treatment plan together.
what therapies do you offer?
Hypnotherapy is a combination of hypnosis, Enhanced Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and a variety of holistic theraputic techniques that are proven to bring about beneficial results for the client while in Alpha and Theta states. I'm Ttrained in the use of a number of transformative techniques including:
- Enhanced Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (eCBT)
- Hypnotherapy & Hypno-Analysis
- Solution Focused Therapy
- Guided Relaxation & Meditation
- Stress Management
- Regression Therapy
- Parts Therapy
- Yogic Movement (Asana)
- Yogic Breath (Pranayama)
- Yogic Meditation & Mindfulness
Clients who undergo hypnotherapy have an efficient, fast and reliable means of uncovering the root cause of your current challenge, free you from self-defeating beliefs/self sabotaging patterns and rewire new empowering messages of your choosing into your subconscious.
ARE THERE PRIVATE HEALTH REBATES FOR HYPNOTHERAPY?
I'm often asked by clients if their hypnosis session is covered with private health cover.
The reality is that many health funds will have different policies towards if they cover hynotherapy or not. It may be worth contacting your fund directly to ask.
As a member of the Australian Hypnotherapists Association (AHA), I am covered with a number of health funds.
Every month, the AHA sends a list to the health funds, so if there is no specific provider number, then you simply tell your health fund to look for me on the AHA Member list.
If you require specific details on your receipt of payment for your sessions in order to claim your rebate, simply email firstname.lastname@example.org and one will be provided to you.
Private Health Fund rebates may apply. Please check with your provider. They will need my AHA Member ID: 2020578. If your provider asks for more information please contact me directly.
