Terms and conditions

How does hypnotherapy work?

All hypnosis is self-hypnosis.
We rely on our conscious minds to be the gate-keepers of all new knowledge – this process ensures that our minds are not overloaded with information, and that insignificant information does not reach the subconscious (or long term memory bank). Hypnotherapy utilises this process to allow positive thoughts, beliefs and emotions to replace old habits.

It is impossible to make you think or do anything that you would not approve of when fully conscious.


Will I remember everything you say?

Yes indeed. However, during a session you may choose to focus on your heightened state of wellbeing and rejuvenation, in which case the details of the words may not be so important at a conscious level.

I’m not sure if I can be hypnotised.
Hypnosis is an innate state of being. Everyone can be hypnotised at some level.


What is the difference between Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy?

Hypnotherapy refers to the practice of hypnosis combined with the application of modern psychotherapies. A Natural State Hypnosis consultation incorporates the medical knowledge of an experienced Registered Nurse, mindfulness techniques and EFT to provide a holistic service to our clients.

Can hypnotherapy provide an ‘instant cure’?
Hypnotherapy is the process of creating change at a conscious and subconscious level and our conscious mind has a firm protective hold on our life long habits. By creating change at a subconscious level we’re providing an opportunity for our conscious mind to learn the new behaviour and embrace it.


What is EFT?

Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) Tapping opens up blocked meridian channels and mindfulness beliefs create the capacity to sit in the discomfort of the ‘change process’.


What payment options are available?

The Bellerive Quay Health Hub offer Visa, Mastercard and debit card facilities. Fortnightly payment plans are welcomed and can be arranged. This can be discussed during the initial phone consultation to ensure the appropriate paperwork is completed on your first consultation. Programs of 3 or 5+ sessions can be paid in full at the initial consultation.


Can I use my Private Health Insurance?

Yes. Many Health providers offer rebates on clinical hypnotherapy. Please call us if you would like further information.


What is your re-scheduling policy?

We understand that our patients are busy people, so we help where we can. To be fair and reasonable, we ask that you respond immediately if you can’t make the following days’ appointment to enable us to re-schedule an appointment and fill the vacant hour.
You will receive an SMS reminder the day before your next consultation. A 50% fee will apply if we do not receive these details 12 hours prior to the anticipated booking.

What is your privacy policy?

Your health conditions and social circumstances are treated with the upmost respect.  Angela has a medical background and is bound by both her current Australian Hypnotherapists’ Board privacy and consent guidelines and the AHPRA Nursing regulations.   Clients will be asked to sign a privacy and consent contract outlining the privacy governing the Practitioner-Client relationship with the exception of a risk of harm to self or others or a disclosure of unlawful acts.  For more details click here.
