What Can Hypnotherapy Be Used For?

Clinical hypnotherapy is a holistic therapy that emphasises deep relaxation. Through inducing a powerful state of deep relaxation, hypnosis is able to utilise the power of suggestion, guided imagery and regression to achieve positive therapeutic outcomes. Enabling you to release entrenched negative patterns and begin the healing process.

Hypnotherapy and the healing it facilitates can be used in conjunction with other therapeutic modalities, such as psychology, counselling, etc.

All these modalities can support your health.

Many questions may naturally arise when undertaking hypnotherapy for the first time. That is why we offer a free consultation with all prospective clinical hypnotherapy clients before booking. This reflects our commitment to ensuring clients have a positive experience, by ensuring you go into the process informed and ready for what the treatments have to offer.

Although hypnotherapy sessions are offered on a one-off basis, we generally advice booking multiple sessions for effective results. We are happy to discuss the required number of treatments based on your circumstances.

How Does Clinical Hypnotherapy Work?

When undergoing hypnosis Melbourne services, the exact treatment details will be designed to suit your individual circumstances. The first step is to discuss the purpose and objectives of hypnotherapy.

Hypnotherapy is always performed with a personalised approach in mind. The first step will be to discuss your personal goals and objectives. This will then allow us to formulate a session that has been specifically tailored to your unique requirements.

Following this, through the use of soft music and guided visualisation, you will gently be guided into a state of deep relaxation. Once you are in this relaxed and receptive state, a combination of relevant imagery/affirmations will be used to help induce desired shifts in attitudes and behavioral patterns. The final stage is to then emerge out of this deeply relaxed state, which may occur naturally or with guided assistance. You should return to your conscious state feeling refreshed and revitalised.

I’ve had motion sickness quite severely for all of my life. I was at the end of the road after trying absolutely everything out there and that’s when I sourced the services of Astrid. My sessions were simple and direct and I felt very comfortable. I have now discovered that I can travel backwards on a tram, can actually read in a moving vehicle and sail on a small rocking boat. I cannot stress enough how the hypnotherapy has altered my life and I can’t begin to thank Astrid enough for her assistance. I truly am a different person!read more

It has been amazing and I thankyou Astrid from the bottom of my heart.read more

I found Astrid’s website and couldn’t believe that someone out there might truly understand what I was experiencing, the hole of despair, anxiety and fear I found myself in after going through an emotionally traumatic relationship and separation.I walked into my first hypnotherapy and energy healing session a shaky and overwhelmed mess, the stress had ruminated so physically in my stomach I wasn’t eating, my entire body was tense and I was barely able to describe what I was feeling, how I wanted to feel or even what my expectation was. Astrid listened to my story, for the first time I felt heard and validated, and because of her openness in sharing her own life’s experience, I was immediately reassured that I was safe and understood and that healing was very possible. I left that day feeling lighter than I may have ever felt in my life, my nervous system was calm and my thoughts were clear.During my second session, I suppose you could say she “went a little deeper” pulling energy that does not serve or belong to me, replacing it with stillness in thought, strength and confidence.I am so grateful to have found Astrid and can’t wait to continue this healing journey with her.Astrid, you are a true healer and possibly the warmest, most compassionate, non-judgemental human I have ever met. Thankyou.read more

After a couple of sessions with Astrid for anxiety relief and the removal of stagnant energy, I can not recommend her enough. She is incredibly easy to talk to, professional yet relatable. If you are looking for something to combine talk therapy with… hypnosis is it!read more

Astrid is more than a hypnotist! She is the ultimate problem solver. I have referred friends to her. She will do whatever it takes to get the positive results you are after! If anything else is required she will then refer you to the right person. A broker of great information/possibilities and knowledge! You can’t ask for more than that!read more

After years of putting it off, I finally confronted some long held personal habits that were holding me back from being the person I wanted to be. I chose Astrid after some recommendations and found her to be the catalyst to my road to recovery. I can honestly say that after 5 sessions I am a totally new guy and whatsmore feel that these changes are going to be permanent. I was apprehensive about the zoom sessions we had to undertake during lockdown but found them equally as beneficial and no way detracted from the overall experience. Indeed ,It allowed me to relax and seek meditative guidance in my own relaxed atmosphere at homeread more

I have been to few healers in the last 7 years and got some relief but the problems and issues will come up again . I was not able to find permanent solution to what I was looking for and what was hurting me .With Astrid I felt that the process was so organic . Within the first 3 sessions I overcame my guilt and anxiety that I had been carrying for years .She understands you and never judges you which is very important for me as I cannot be myself if I feel someone is judging me for everything I say.She is a true healer and love the tapping and hypno sessions with her as after every session I have had a breakthrough .Astrid thank you so much and will see you very soonread more

Astrid is like my guardian Angel! I had been in and out of eating disorders for 20years. After 2 Hypno and tapping sessions with Astrid, my urges had gone. Astrid is something special. The 3 different modalities (hypnosis, energy healing and tapping) that Astrid uses are a amazingly effective combination! After 20years of fear, I feel safe around food which is such a liberating feeling. I feel so grateful to have found Astrid and would recommend any long term “self-sabbatager” to give Astrid a call ????read more
