New Farm Hypnotherapy - What Happens During A Visit

If you live in South-East Queensland you may want to visit the clinic for personalised hypnotherapy sessions. On your initial visit to the clinic we will spend some time getting to know each other and clarifying the reasons for your visit.

We will explain exactly what hypnosis is, and will answer any questions that you have. Everything that you discuss with your therapist is confidential.  We realise that every client is unique, and on the basis of our understanding of your individual needs, we will formulate a program for you.  For example, we teach many of our clients self-hypnosis techniques that they can use in times of stress or to make other changes in their lives.  Hypnotherapy CD's or audiotapes are often used in between sessions to maximise the effectiveness of the process. 

When you work with a Hypnotherapist, you enter into deep states of relaxation where the conscious or analytical aspect of the mind becomes more passive. This leaves the way open for beneficial ideas and concepts to be absorbed and processed by the unconscious or creative mind leading to positive and lasting change.

A popular perception is that a Hypnotherapist controls people and can make them do things against their will, this is not so.  You cannot be hypnotized against your will and will not accept any suggestions that are contrary to your personal, ethical or religious beliefs. 

When you are hypnotised you will be aware of what the therapist is saying, and should you desire, or should an emergency arise, you could leave the trance state at any time. In spite of what you may have heard, most people can respond to hypnosis, you simply need to be able to concentrate.  The “depth” of hypnosis is not an indicator of the effectiveness of a session.  You may achieve amazing results having experienced, to your mind, only a light state of hypnosis.

Do Medicare or Private Health Funds rebate for these services?
There is no Medicare rebate for hypnotherapy. Many private health funds give a rebate for hypnotherapy, psychotherapy or counselling depending on the level of cover and health plan you have. You will need to contact you health fund to find out whether your plan covers these services. Both Antoine and Glen are registered clinical members of the Australian Hypnotherapists Association and this association is at this time the only association in Australia that qualifies for rebates from many private health funds. You will find a guide for some health fund payments here.
