What is Hypno-Psychotherapy?

Hypno-psychotherapy is psychotherapy which is enhanced by the clinical use of hypnosis.  A hypno-psychotherapist differs from a hypnotherapist, in that they are trained to use both hypnotic and psychotherapeutic interventions, to assist clients in achieving their goals.

Psychotherapy can help you to make sense of both the emotions that are controlling you, and the experiences that trigger them.  Hypnotherapy can help to change old and ingrained habits and remove phobias and irrational fears. It enables you to access your own inner resources and to find a greater sense of self, and through relaxation skills, a greater sense of well-being in both mind and body.

Therefore, hypno-psychotherapy can successfully be used to modify a client’s behaviour, attitudes and emotions, as well as manage pain, anxiety, stress-related illnesses, and dysfunctional habits.

Complex emotional, psychological or physical problems respond best to hypno-psychotherapy, rather than just psychotherapy, and this may include issues such as lack of self-esteem, anxiety, phobias, panic attacks, depression and sexual dysfunction.

It also has many other medical applications, including pre/post operative treatments, anaesthesia and pain relief strategies, as well as stress-related physical problems such as skin disorders, migraine and IBS.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

The Federal Health Minister, Greg Hunt, has advised that “ALL allied health businesses nationally can continue working and are encouraged to do”. He has encouraged providers to continue vital face-to-face services where possible.

These are challenging times for everyone, but your personal and relationship issues continue to need assistance. My practice is still open for hypnotherapy and individual or relationship counselling, including Rekindle the Love workshops.

However, face-to-face sessions are available only for local residents, at this time.

If you are sick or have come into contact with the Coronavirus at any point, and/or if you have recently been overseas, please stay at home and contact me on 0407 009 050 to reschedule your appointment.

The safety of my clients and wider community is of utmost importance to me, and my home-based clinic is fully compliant with the new social distancing rules and hygiene practices. I have ensured that appointments are staggered so that you and your partner, where appropriate, are the only clients visiting my practice, at any one time.

Video sessions are available for both individuals and couples, I am currently preparing a program for couples to complete a Rekindle the Love workshop, online.

Please contact me for more information.

Coronavirus and social isolation will add to existing pressure points on relationships, so don’t let your marriage become a coronavirus casualty.
