Hypnotherapy may seem like a mystery, but it has a solid background in neuroscience. Think of hypnosis as a gentle and effective way to change negative beliefs, release negative emotions and help you shift what you no longer need.
But how does it work? Essentially, all our hypnotherapists are doing is getting you into a deep state of relaxation. By inducing this state, you’re able to access your subconscious mind – the part where all of your unknown fears, desires and beliefs are stored.
At Shift at Brisbane Natural Health hypnotherapy has helped our patients to overcome anxiety and depression, to overcome fears, to increase confidence, release stuck emotions and even to break habits like overeating and smoking.
Your mental wellbeing is so important, and hypnosis is a means to help to strengthen this part of you so you can make good choices and strive for what makes you happy.

What is hypnosis?
For many of us, our first (and only) experience with hypnosis is from media and popular culture, where it has been used more as an entertaining trick by magicians and performers – for example, making them think they’re an animal or that they speak another language. The truth is, the same psychological mechanisms which make people believe in a hypnotic state believe they’re a chicken also have powerful potential to transform other behaviour patterns – including those which may be considered unhealthy or less than ideal. In other words, by putting a client in a hypnotic state, a hypnotherapist can make ‘suggestions’ to their subconscious mind which impact the way they behave when they are awake. In a therapeutic context, hypnosis may mean stopping them from performing an unhealthy behaviour (like using hypnosis to quit smoking), or motivating them to adopt a healthy habit.
Hypnotherapy has been practiced since the late 1800s. Since then, multiple clinical studies have been undertaken into the efficacy of hypnotherapy in the treatment of different conditions, from insomnia to addiction. At Shift at Brisbane Natural Health we have helped with addiction, as well as the treatment of many other issues and conditions.
Why would you see a hypnotist at Brisbane Natural Health?
Hypnotherapy can help to facilitate some profound changes in the body. Patients that benefit the most are those that have identified that perhaps they have some habits, behaviours or thought processes which are not healthy or do not help them to thrive.
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.
Hypnotherapy is safe, affordable and effective for the treatment of many issues. Think of it as healing and strengthening the mental and emotional part of you, the part where we often store our most deep-seated fears and the part which can stop us from reaching our full potential.
There are several reasons to try hypnotherapy for anxiety and depression or weight loss or for quit smoking hypnosis at Shift at Brisbane Natural Health. Our clinic is home to Rebecca Brewster, one of the best hypnotherapists in Brisbane who has over 10 years experience.

No. Even if they wanted to (which would never be a consideration as our therapists ALWAYS have your best interests at heart) a hypnotherapist can only offer suggestions for change that you are open to and are willing to do.
Because of this, you need to actually be willing to make change, or the hypnosis will not be effective for you. If there are reasons that may be stopping you from being ready, these will be addressed in your session first.
An initial hypnotherapy appointment is $195 and approximately 90 minutes long.
Return appointments are $180 and are one hour long.
Our Quit Smoking Program is $495.
As this is an individual process your therapist will be able to give you a rough idea of the amount of sessions you will need and how often after your first hypnotherapy appointment. Most clients will begin to notice some level of change after their first appointment, but will usually require at least 4 appointments to really shift the issue.
An exception to this can be quit smoking or stopping other habits and addictions, which we commonly see resolved in 1-2 sessions.
