Specialising in Clinical Hypnosis and Energy Healing

Melbourne's Most Trusted Hypnotherapist
Manage Weight Loss & Food Cravings

"Eliminate the mindset of can't — because you can do anything."

Weight loss doesn’t start in the gym, in a tub of protein powder, or even with the vegetables on your plate. It starts in your head, and so it doesn’t matter how you plan to go about losing those extra kilos – if you let those bad habits and self-sabotaging thoughts that have been contributing to your weight stick around, you’re not getting to the core of the problem. Instead, eliminate those habits and by default, you’ll shed the kilos.

Do you comfort eat?

Are you calorie counting with no success?

How many diets have you tried that didn’t work for you?

Build a healthier relationship with food using hypnosis.


  • What does your weight cost you?
  • Is there a financial cost?
  • Are you self-conscious?
  • Do you avoid work or social situations because of your weight?
  • Are you neglecting yourself?
  • How is it impacting your health?
  • How important is self-worth and self-love?
  • Are your relationships suffering?

Hi, I’m Astrid Ritenis. I have 20 years of experience as a Clinical Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapist, and I am looking forward to meeting you. Let’s start this journey together, my goal is to lead you towards a happy and fulfilled life. Come and enjoy the natural process of hypnosis and mindset healing to achieve your goals, once and for all.

Until you make the decision to alter your mindset, you will find yourself trapped in an endless cycle of diet, disappointment, and downright unhappiness. Food is good for the soul! You don’t have to restrict yourself from enjoying the things you love.

Instead, join me as I teach you ways to change your attitude toward food. Explore what food means to you, and the emotions that are stirred when thinking about eating. As we progress on our journey together, you’ll experience a mind shift that brings about the rediscovery of food, nutrition, and healthy refuelling, realigning a more positive relationship with what you eat.

Change your mind, change your life.

Would you like to leave behind all the negative self-talk, destructive beliefs, and expensive diets that don’t work? Hypnosis and Energy Healing can work in a range of ways to help you lose weight and keep it off. Hypnosis can be used to reduce your stress response, anxiety and emotional triggers, which in the past have caused you to turn to food for comfort or as a way to block out negative feelings.

How might hypnosis help me with food cravings?

  • It helps you recognise issues at the core of your weight struggles.
  • It helps you create new positive relationship with food.
  • Helps you self-regulate when you eat.
  • Willpower gets stronger.
  • Helps to counteract self-sabotage.
  • Hypnosis helps you feel great!
  • Creates foundations for healthy food choices.
  • Motivation for exercise.
  • Shopping and planning for healthy fresh foods.
  • Believing in yourself.


To achieve a healthy, balanced life you need:

  • A good relationship with yourself
  • A great relationship with food
  • A good relationship with exercise

What will our sessions look like?

Session 1

  • Medical history – we explore the stresses and triggers in your life, and look at how those then convert into your food habits.
  • Emotional pain and trauma in your life – your past doesn’t have to affect your future.
  • What do you crave? Whether it be chocolate, lollies, cakes, or large portions, we discover how your cravings might be your body telling you something.
  • How do you want to be? Let’s set goals! Think about how you want to look and feel, and let’s get you there.

Pain, anger and negative emotions need clearing. You walk out feeling empowered, stronger, and finally in control.

Session 2

  • How is your self-control?
  • Are you making better choices?
  • How does self-love manifest in you?
  • How are your portion sizes? Do you feel less hungry?
  • Hypnosis and Healing let you take back your power and motivation.

Sessions 3, 4 and 5

In these sessions, we will explore the importance of self-control. Learn to only eat when hungry, recognise hunger from thirst, and eat to feel full. Uncover emotional healing, clear self-sabotaging, acknowledge childhood patterns including anger, fear, lack of self-esteem and then banish them. Once we eliminate food cravings and you start to feel motivated, strong and in control, you’ll notice the weight loss occurs almost as if by default.
