The policy of our practice is to keep fees to a fair and affordable level to provide a quality service for all.  If the fees are prohibitive to you or you are experiencing financial difficulties please discuss this with Mr Wright.

Phone Consultation $6 per minute (See note)

Prices are per consultation, not per person, that is, the price for a couple is the same as the price for an individual, except in the case of smoking consultations

Smoking hypnotherapy cannot be covered under the Medicare system.

Note: Phone Consultations are not a part of normal practice, but in an emergency, will be charged at $6 per minute if the consultation extends beyond 10 minutes.  Routine management calls are not charged.

Clients will be eligible for up to 10 individual services in a calendar year. Services are provided as required in a set of six sessions, after which a review by your GP is required for a further four sessions if necessary. Clients will also be eligible for up to 10 group session services, where appropriate, in a calendar year.

What is Hypnosis?

From the Australian Society of Hypnosis

Hypnosis is the process by which a person induces an altered state of attention or degree of awareness in another person. The process may result in a variety of phenomena, which occur spontaneously or in response to verbal or other stimuli. These phenomena include: alterations in consciousness and memory; increased susceptibility to suggestion; the production of responses and ideas unfamiliar to the person in the normal state of mind; or changes in behaviour, perceptions, or psychological processes.

Hypnosis can also occur naturally when a person has become totally absorbed in what they are doing. Thus, like day-dreaming, hypnotic-like states may occur in people regularly.

Hypnosis is not the same as sleep. It is not like an anaesthetic. You do not "pass out" and you are not unconscious when you are hypnotised. You do not lose control over your mind or your feelings. You do not weaken or surrender your will to any other person. In fact, your will-power may be strengthened with hypnosis.

In hypnosis, it is usual to feel relaxed, at ease, and you may well enjoy a special peace of mind. Many people comment on their feeling of comfort and security, or the sensation of lightness or floating. What is particularly pleasant about hypnosis is the fact that it is natural and safe when used by trained professionals, and almost everyone can learn to use it by themselves and be helped by it. It can be learned and used by adults, adolescents, and children alike.

Where hypnosis can be used:

Hypnosis is particularly useful for helping people change their behaviour, symptoms, and attitudes. It is one of the most powerful psychological methods for mental and physical relaxation. Thus, hypnosis is useful for anxiety and stress control, and phobias. It is also useful in dealing with attention type deficits, motivation, assertiveness and confidence building, ego-strengthening and enhancing psychotherapy and counselling.

Medical Applications:
Treatments for most conditions including asthma, enuresis, hypertension, migraine, obesity, smoking cessation, gastrointestinal disorders and anxiety. It is also used extensively for labour and childbirth, minor surgical procedures, and pain control.

Psychological & Psychiatric Applications:
Include anxiety control, motivation training, attitude change, depression, eating disorders, fears and phobias, memory training, nail biting, panic and performance anxiety, sexual dysfunction, sleep disorders, stuttering, study problems, trauma counselling, thumb sucking.
