A Proven Model of Hypnosis
That Gets Results

In an unregulated industry, anyone can download a ‘hypnosis script’ and call themselves a hypnotherapist. Without proper training and experience, you could find yourself doing more than good. When undertaken by a qualified hypnotherapist, the science shows that real outcomes are achievable. You can learn more about this at the Australian Hypnotherapist’s Association.

Clinical hypnosis is much more than just a guided relaxation to help you feel a little more relaxed at the end of the session. It is a strategic model of therapy designed to achieve results. Typically, most clients only require around four sessions before they start to see significant change.

Frequently Asked Questions

u003cstrongu003eWhat is hypnosis?u003c/strongu003e

Hypnosis is a state of heightened awareness and focused attention. It is a natural occurrence that can happen during everyday activities like reading, driving, or watching a movie. In fact, people experience hypnotic states multiple times a day.

Can anyone be hypnotised?

Some people may be more susceptible to hypnosis than others, but with a trained hypnotherapist, almost anyone can be hypnotized. It’s important to keep in mind that hypnosis is not a form of sleep or unconsciousness, but rather a state of focused attention and relaxation. During hypnosis, the person remains aware and in control at all times.

u003cstrongu003eWhat is hypnotherapy? u003c/strongu003e

Hypnotherapy is a form of therapy that utilises hypnosis to help people make positive changes in their lives. During a hypnotherapy session, a qualified therapist will guide you into a relaxed, trance-like state and offer suggestions to help you make desired changes at a deeper level.

Is hypnosis safe?

Hypnosis is considered to be a safe and effective form of treatment when performed by a trained and certified hypnotherapist. It is important to find a qualified and experienced hypnotherapist who has received appropriate training and follows ethical guidelines.

Hypnosis is not suitable for everyone, and there are certain conditions where it should be avoided. For example, hypnosis should not be used as a substitute for appropriate medical treatment, and it is not recommended for people who have certain mental disorders, such as psychosis or dissociative disorders.

As with any form of treatment, it is always a good idea to consult with a healthcare professional before starting hypnosis. They will be able to assess whether hypnosis is suitable for you and help you to find a qualified and reputable hypnotherapist if needed.

u003cstrongu003eWhat can hypnosis be used for? u003c/strongu003e

Hypnosis is a state of focused attention and relaxation that has been used for a variety of purposes, including stress and anxiety management, habit modification, performance enhancement, and insomnia. It may not work for everyone and it is important to consult with a healthcare professional before starting hypnosis.

u003cstrongu003eCan a person be made to do something against their will while in a state of hypnosis? u003c/strongu003e

No, a person cannot be made to do something against their will while in hypnosis. Hypnosis is a state of focused attention and relaxation, and the person remains in control of their thoughts and actions at all times. It is not possible for a hypnotherapist to control the mind of the person being hypnotized or make them do something against their will.

In fact, one of the fundamental principles of hypnosis is that the person being hypnotized must be willing to accept and respond to the suggestions of the hypnotherapist. If a person is not willing to be hypnotized or does not want to follow the suggestions of the hypnotherapist, they will not enter into a hypnotic state or be responsive to the hypnotherapy.

It is important to remember that hypnosis is not a form of mind control or manipulation, but rather a tool that can be used to help people make positive changes in their lives with their own free will.
