THE FACTS: High Tech Hypnotherapy (HTH)

What is HTH and how can it help me?

In Hypnosis, positive suggestions, visualizations and guided imagery are given to the unconscious mind to be absorbed and repeated. As a result, you automatically begin to change the way you think and act about yourself and your future to achieve a more positive successful you!

What is High Tech Hypnotherapy?

High Tech Hypnotherapy is a blend of Ericksonian Hypnosis and Neuro Linguistic Programming, Neuro semantics and Neuro Hypnotic Repatterning. These tools have been used in a new model that has been developed and refined in clinical practice by Steve Kormas over 12 years. They are extremely effective and accurate since they target the subconscious part of the mind where all behaviours and emotions are stored.

Can everyone be hypnotised?

Anyone who is willing can be hypnotised. Everyone is influenced everyday by many things: our environment, beliefs, friends, feelings, even our own bodies, Hypnosis focuses that influence in a manner that supports your outcome.

Will I say or do anything under Hypnosis which is against my will?

In order for a suggestion to take place, you must be in complete agreement with it. You will never say or do anything against your morals or beliefs.

What will I feel like under HTH?

Hypnosis is a very peaceful state of mind. Stress and pressures disappear and every nerve and muscle in your body is free of tension although you remain alert and completely in control. When you open your eyes, you feel peaceful, refreshed, optimistic and hopeful, and determined and motivated to follow through with new positive thought patterns.

Will I cluck like a chicken or bark like a dog ?

Did someone say Hypnosis? Unfortunately for Clinical Hypnotherapists  the vast majority of people think of Stage Hypnosis when “Hypnotherapy” is mentioned.  This has a vastly different intention and focus to Clinical Hypnotherapy and studies have proven that people who have experienced both report that Clinical Hypnotherapy is safe, easy, within the patients control and definitely no chicken clucking! Article published:  Lennis G.Echterling (1988): Contrasting Stage and Clinical Hypnosis, American Journal of Clinical Hypnosis , 30:4, 276 -284

Do I need High tech Hypnotherapy?

Hypnotherapy can help you if you experience nervous symptoms such as: anxiety, depression, fears, and stress or physical complaints. If you have difficulties with other people at work or in personal relationships; if you have emotional or self-esteem problems; if you feel out of control with unwanted habits or patterns; if you suffer from irritability, bad temper or you just believe you are not getting the most out of your life, Hypnotherapy can be of help to you.

Will I go to sleep?

You are never unaware nor in a sleep state. Instead you are more mentally alert than usual and whilst completely relaxed your senses are more acute. When we use the words “deep sleep”, we mean a deep relaxation of the mind and body.

Will I remember everything after Hypnosis?

You will remember everything clearly and perfectly after being hypnotised. You are always in complete control.

What happens during a hypnotherapy session?

The process of going into a hypnotic state is very relaxing and once you have reached a deep enough state of relaxation, you will be guided so that you can start to make the changes that might be necessary to achieve your desired outcome.

What is the cost of a session?

Sessions cost $400.00 (second session is no charge). Generally only one session is required. We take credit cards, cheque and EFTPOS. If an extended program is required rates are reduced.

How many sessions will I need?

On average most of our clients only ever require one session. A second session can be made for no additional fee within a month of your initial session.  If time has lapsed for more than a month then the second session is treated as a new session and fees will apply. In your circumstances require more sessions this will be discussed with you.
