Hypnotherapy for Smoking in Melbourne, Oakleigh, Cranbourne & Knox

Whole Mind Strategies
Australian Hypnotherapists Association

Hypnotherapy is an important tool when it comes to the treatment of mental health disorders or addictions. However, when considering hypnotherapy there’s some important information to keep in mind. Melbourne has at this stage no regulations on who can practice hypnotherapy. A person who does a two-day course in hypnosis training can set themselves up as a hypnotherapist and practice. Compare this to a hypnotherapist who has attended a government accredited training program to receive a recognised Diploma in clinical hypnotherapy that would require thousands of hours of study and practice in hypnotherapy, counselling and psychology, and you will see there will be a great divide in the quality of therapy you can expect.

Accredited member associations such as the Australian Hypnotherapists Association (AHA) or the Australian Society of Clinical Hypnotherapists (ASCH) vet all applications to make sure members have appropriate training, qualifications and experience. These memberships allow the therapist to offer some health fund rebates and are bound by a code of ethics. They also require ongoing personal development and monthly supervision to remain a member.

If you’re seeking help with hypnosis for smoking around Oakleigh, Cranbourne, Knox or similar areas then our Dandenong clinic in Melbourne’s south-east is the ideal solution.

How to Choose a Hypnotherapist for Smoking Hypnotherapy

We suggest you choose a hypnotherapist who is a clinical member of a recognised Australian member association like the AHA or the ASCH and enquire about their qualifications.

Some people charge between $400 and $500 for a single one-hour session of hypnotherapy, saying one session of hypnosis for smoking or addiction will be enough. Be wary of claims like this. Also, beware of any guarantees or success rates offered. It is against the fair-trading rules of Victoria to offer any guarantee of success. Success rates can only be offered if an independent and verifiable testing program through an organisation such as a hospital or university has been conducted. At our clinic in Melbourne’s south-east we see patients for a range of issues from smoking hypnotherapy to counselling, and we charge less than the average rates for sessions. Located in Dandenong, we’re a short drive for locals of surrounding suburbs from Oakleigh to Knox and Cranbourne.

Our psychotherapist – hypnotherapist – counsellor Tony Gilmour has government accredited training and qualifications in hypnotherapy and counselling.

He also presents seminars to Doctors, therapists, support groups and the public on dealing with anxiety and depression. He gets referrals from doctors, psychologists and psychiatrists but you don’t need a referral to book an appointment.
