Becoming a Hypnotherapist

Nov 29, 2012

If you like the idea of helping people live healthier and more balanced lives, hypnotherapy can be a very rewarding career. This article explores hypnotherapy and how you can become a hypnotherapist in Australia.

What Does a Hypnotherapist Do?

Hypnotherapy (or more specifically, clinical hypnotherapy) is viewed as an effective results-centric treatment. Using hypnosis, hypnotherapists help clients achieve mental, emotional and physical relaxation to bring about change in their lives.

As a hypnotherapist, you will use hypnosis techniques to still the client’s conscious mind and tap into the subconscious (or unconscious) mind. These techniques help shift thought patterns, change habits and heal hurt caused by trauma or negative experiences.

Essentially, you are a facilitator in your clients’ healing, guiding them to adopt healthier habits and change their thinking to promote positive change.

What Makes a Good Hypnotherapist?

Hypnotherapy can be a very rewarding career choice. Not only are you making a difference, but you can also expect to earn between $60,000 and $120,000 a year, based on a three day working week.

According to the Australian Institute of Clinical Hypnotherapy, a good hypnotherapist is:

  • Caring and keen to make a difference in the world
  • Curious about the human mind and spirit
  • Goal-oriented and able to find solutions to problems
  • Flexible in their thinking and has resolved issues in their life
  • Able to work independently without much supervision
  • Organised and proactive when running a practice

Studying to Become a Hypnotherapist

People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills… There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind… So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself. — MARCUS AURELIUS
