Ballarat Hypnotherapy

At Ballarat Hypnotherapy every client receives tailor made sessions. The more individual, specific details that can be woven into the hypnosis, the more successful the results can be.

What is Hypnosis?

Being in a state of hypnosis is something we all experience. It is those times when you are not quite awake and not quite asleep but somewhere in between. It happens in bed, watching TV and even when driving the car ("I don't remember the last 20kms").

What does a Hypnotherapist do?

Hypnotherapists use this very natural trance state to suggest changes to the subconcious. A trained hypnotherapist can help with physical, mental and emotional health, phobias, exam and sport focus, life skills and much, much more.

Will I start clucking like a chicken?

Do you want to cluck like a chicken? Stage hypnotist shows are great fun but here at Ballarat Hypnotherapy the focus is on helping clients. If you are an actor, your role is a chicken and you are experiencing stage fright - then we can help get you in touch with your inner chicken so you can give the best chook performance of your life.

Our History

Ballarat Hypnotherapy has been a work in progress for many years. Here's the story so far ...

A dear friend became unwell and even though she was being seen by great doctors and specialists she had times of despair, of feeling out of control of the physical pain and out of control of her life which at the time was defined by her pain.

I felt that there must be something out there to help her take back some control.

Time went on, she became better but all the while, at the back of my mind was the question, "How do people take control?"

I heard a few terrific stories about hypnotherapy and looked further into it. I decided that at the age of nearly 40, this is "what I want to do when I grow up". So I found a fantastic, government accredited course to study and am now a Clinical Hypnotherapist.

How lucky am I? I have found a really effective way to help people make positive changes in their lives and I love it.
