Frequently Asked Questions

How Does What You Do Work?



This works so well as we practice a blend of Advanced Hypnosis and Neuro Linguistics Programming (NLP) that are tailored to the individual. The old myths and misconceptions about hypnosis have given way to proven, scientifically sound applications. Today the use of hypnosis is seen in medicine, dentistry, law enforcement, professional sports, and education.




How Does Hypnosis Work?


Our minds work on two levels – the conscious and the subconscious. We make decisions, think, and act with our conscious mind. The subconscious mind controls our habits. In the relaxed state known as hypnosis, we can communicate directly with the subconscious mind. This is why it is so quick and easy to change habits of a lifetime with hypnosis.




Will This Work For Me?


If you are committed to become a non-smoker and with an Average 1Q or higher it can be successful for you.




Does It Work?


Yes, for a lot of people it does! However we are talking about smoking here so nothing is 100% guaranteed, anyone who says otherwise is lying.
The truth is, I don’t exactly know what my success rate is for permanent smoking cessation. To do so would require contacting every person I have treated on a regular basis to check up on them. Less than 10% of people I treat come back for a second treatment and less than 1% have ever requested a third treatment.
The best evidence I can provide for the success of the treatment is the committment I offer every client.
I spend considerable time during the treatment explaining where the drive to smoke comes from and that occasionally, some people may need a second treatment.
I am happy to provide that extra treatment at no cost (within a 3 month period).

I don’t for a minute claim that my success rate for permanent smoking cessation is 90% but I think the above stats indicate that many, many people get a lasting result from my treatment.




How Will I Know That It Has Worked?


Because you will have quit cigarettes and will feel great being a non-smoker. Many people never even experience withdrawal symptoms after the session. In fact some feel as if they have never smoked cigarettes.




Is It Safe?


Yes, what we do is based mostly on advanced hypnosis and NLP. And both of these are completely safe. You are aware and in control at every moment and can terminate the session at any time. You cannot get stuck in hypnosis. You can’t be made to do something against your will. Hypnosis is a safe, relaxing, and enjoyable experience.




How Does What You Do Help Me To Stop Smoking?


Because your reasons for smoking cigarettes are different then other people’s reasons. The areas you need help in are different than your friends. And since we custom tailor the session to you and address your specific needs, you become a non-smoker with ease.




How Long Is The Session?


Please allow 2 hours for your session.




Can I Still Smoke Pot?


The short answer is NO, as smoking is smoking.




Do You Offer Wheel Chair Access?


Yes we have Wheel Chair Access. Ramp entry via visitors carpark




Do Hypnotherapists Have A Code Of Conduct?


Yes all Australian hypnotherapy bodies have Codes of Ethics. Our Practioners are members of the Australian Institute of Complementary Therapists. This is always important to check when you are considering working with any Hypnotherapist.




Do You Offer A Guarantee That I Will Stop Smoking?


The short answer is no! It takes two to tango as they say. BUT. we are so confident about what we do that we back up our Quit Smoking Session.
This means that if you start smoking cigarettes again within 3 months of your session, we will do a follow up session at no charge to help you quit cigarettes. Yes, you read that correctly. If you start smoking cigarettes again in 3 months, we will do a session for FREE to help you become a non-smoker again. NB: The success of hypnosis therapy depends greatly on the client’s ability to relax and their desire to create change in themselves. Results of a client’s sessions depend greatly upon their own serious participation, and as much as we are known for our results we can not offer any guarantee of the success of any sessions. However we de everything reasonably in our power to ensure each client’s success. After 3 months If it has been more than 3 months since you have seen us and you have taken up smoking again, we know you would appreciate that you did receive results with us and became a non-smoker who then made a conscious decision to start again. We talk about this in-depth during our first session. If you do require a further session after 3months (of your first session) or after a FREE follow -up session there is $200 charge.
