What is hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy may seem like a mystery, but it has a solid background in neuroscience. Think of clinical hypnotherapy – a type of hypnosis – as a gentle and effective way to change your negative beliefs, release negative emotions and help you shift feelings, thoughts and habits that you no longer need. These alternative medicine approaches have a lot of research and support showing their effectiveness in a therapeutic context.
At Shift at Brisbane Natural Health, we have a specialist clinical hypnotherapist team that uses hypnotherapy to help our patients to overcome anxiety and depression, overcome fears, increase confidence, release stuck emotions, quite smoking and even break habits like overeating. Hypnotherapy can help you overcome obstacles, improve your self esteem, increase your self confidence, make positive life changes, lose weight and help prevent panic attacks.
Your mental well-being is so important. You can use hypnosis as a means to help to strengthen this part of you – giving you the ability to make good choices and strive for what makes you happy. In providing professional hypnotherapy at our Brisbane hypnosis clinic just outside the Brisbane CBD we offer a private and soothing environment. We also offer online session options for people living outside of Brisbane.
In the last fifty years, evidence-based research into the effectiveness of hypnotherapy has provided significant insights into the therapeutic value of Clinical Hypnotherapy. Hypnotherapy treatment is outside of typical mainstream medicine but done right, it is a powerful tool with proven programs that will help you feel empowered and present to live a meaningful life.

How hypnotherapy works
When you think of hypnosis, you may imagine what you’ve seen on TV during stage hypnosis or in a movie. Clinical hypnosis is very different and it can’t make you do anything that you don’t want to do. When you’re in hypnosis, it is called being in a trance state.
Trance is like being in deep meditation. Your body will be relaxed and you’ll usually feel incredibly calm and relaxed. This in itself is an enormous relief from the symptoms of anxiety.
In this relaxed state you can now access your subconscious mind, those deeper parts of yourself that are sometimes not immediately apparent.
Over 90% of your mind is subconscious and this is where our most deep-seated beliefs and values are stored. By accessing this part of ourselves, we can make significant changes and help to release emotions and past traumas so that you can heal and overcome your anxiety symptoms.
It is in the safety of the relaxed state of hypnosis that you can more easily process the triggers of your health concern.
This means you can begin to build a bridge between the fearful experience and the present so you can teach your mind and body to trust that it is now safe and you can choose how you would like to respond in any given circumstance.
After your visit
Our hypnotherapy sessions are a relaxing, connected experience and usually, you will leave the room feeling calmer and with some great insights into your mental and emotional health. Your hypnotherapist will discuss any extra sessions you may need to help you on your healing journey.
