    Melbourne Hypnotherapy Centre

    Neil Gilbert has been conducting Stop Smoking Programs for more than 30 yrs, initially in St. Kilda Rd, Melbourne. He now works exclusively on the Mornington Peninsula. Neil is a registered Psychologist with degrees with honors in Psychology and Counselling. He has a Diploma of Clinical Hypnosis and has completed a Master Hypnotherapist course with the Hypnotism Training Institute at Los Angeles, California.

    Why Hypnosis?

    On the basis of a number of studies into the relative effectiveness of different approaches, Hypnosis has been found to be the most successful method assisting people to stop smoking. Most approaches focus solely on the physical addiction aspects of smoking while totally ignoring the psychological habit component of the addiction. Hypnosis works on this psychological addiction helping to ensure that, not only do you stop smoking, but that you remain a non-smoker. We also place emphasis on helping you to Avoid An Increase In Weight which often occurs when people stop smoking.

    The most important prerequisite to Stop Smoking is your attitude of total commitment to being a non-smoker. Unless you really want to Stop Smoking you will not succeed and you will be wasting your time and money. I cannot stop you smoking - Hypnosis does not stop you smoking. I simply help you by using hypnosis and I have no doubt that if you are really ready to accept the responsibility for your health that you will succeed.

    When you make an appointment we send you a CD which explains what we do and the rationale behind our approach. We use various hypnotic techniques including verbal affirmations, visualisations, as well as aural and visual subliminal inputs. You are also given post hypnotic suggestions.

    You also have the benefit of some special Brain Wave Entrainment equipment to help you to relax more easily and deeply to get maximum benefit from your hypnotic experience.

    Let this be a turning point on your life. Why not join the thousands of people who have used this approach to successfully Stop Smoking?

    Do not think of yourself as giving up smoking. Rather, look upon being a Non-Smoker as simply taking up a sensible approach to your future health and wellbeing. If you are ready to save yourself thousands of dollars and at the same time, slow down the aging process and add years on to your life, give me a call and begin the rest of your life as a Non-Smoker.

    The fee for the two hour session is $250
    If there are two people the fee is $150 each.
    If there are three people the fee is $110 each
    There is a $20 surcharge for A/H Appts. (After 5p.m. & Sat.)

    Weight Loss

    When most people want to lose weight they go on a diet which may be successful in the short term but is not a long-term solution. People may lose weight initially but they so often find that they put the weight back on again. Dieting is based on denying yourself the food you might wish to eat. With hypnosis we help you to lose the desire for the food so you do not have that ongoing willpower battle with yourself. There are three forms of eating that people do which contribute to their weight problem — eating the wrong food, eating to excess and eating for psychological reasons — because you feel lonely, bored, depressed, frustrated et cetera. Hypnosis can be of assistance to you in each of these areas.

    We use a variety of approaches — using verbal, visual, subliminal and post hypnotic suggestions. We also give you a code word which helps you to cope more effectively in stress situations and to avoid turning to food as a psychological crutch. In addition, we use some brainwave entrainment equipment which helps you to relax more easily and become more receptive to suggestion during the hypnosis sessions.

    We also use an hypnotic gastric lap band program for people who may have a considerable amount of weight to lose.

    If you are committed to losing weight and do not have any unrealistic expectations I am quite confident that we will be able to help you to do so. In addition to the hypnosis sessions we teach you self hypnosis so you will be able to keep the whole process going.

    Problems in your relationship?
    Not feeling the same way about each other as you used to?
    Want to get back to that special relationship you once had?
    Maybe it is time to try some relationship counselling before it is too late.
    There are too many relationship break-ups in Australia today. Do not let it happen to you.


    Initially we see you together (or individually if you prefer) for some history taking, problem identification, and explanation of the counselling process. The purpose of the session is not to determine who was at fault orto allocate blame. The counsellor does not act as a ‘judge who, after listening to each of you, decides who was right and who is wrong. Rather, the aim of the session is primarily to identify the problems which are causing difficulties in your relationship and to get some indication as to whether the relationship is able to be saved. Unfortunately, it is sometimes the case that the relationship has irretrievably broken down and counselling at this stage may be too late. (See below regarding separation counselling). Hopefully that is not the case with your relationship.

    Our relationship counselling sessions cover general counselling with the emphasis on developing communication skills to effectively manage the difficulties in your relationship. You will have access to a number of CDs covering topics which will help to improve your relationship. I have no doubt that if each of you is committed to improving relationship you will be successful.

    As well as general counselling for resolving difficulties and improving your relationship, we also provide individual therapy to help people with specific problems which may be contributing to difficulties in the relationship e.g. alcoholism, gambling, anger, sexual problems, excessive spending, inability to show affection and coping with the aftermath of an affair, et cetera.


    If the relationship has irretrievably broken down is important to attend for separation counselling and mediation to avoid ongoing bitterness and anger and also to avoid the debilitating financial difficulties which may result from an acrimonious breakup. This separation counselling is especially important if there are children involved.

    Under some circumstances you may be eligible for a Medicare or private health fund rebate for your counselling sessions. Please enquire.
