Certified TLT/NLP/Hypnotherapist


HypnotherapyNeuroliguistic Programing (NLP)


Therapy can help you to:

• Overcome smoking habits

• Achieve weight goals

• Control problem drinking

• Overcome drug addictions

• Get rid of life long phobias

• Stop bad habits plus achieve many other positive outcomes

• Manage depression and anxiety problems

The application of NLP involves a very individualized approach performed by a qualified hypnotherapist. The process will generally involve between 3 and 8 hours of personalised one-on-one therapy as part of a series of one-hour sessions, which includes a detailed history to clarify the desired outcomes, tasks to be completed at home and individual NLP (Neuro-liguistic Programing) procedures to enable you to achieve those outcomes.

Hypnotherapy is the process of using hypnosis to interact with the subconscious mind in an open-reflective process to create positive change in your life. There are many techniques and many styles and many applications of hypnotherapy. They all have several things in common:

•A strong desire to change
•A state of deeply relaxed focus
•Language and visualization in relationship to emotions

Medicare & Hypnotherapy/NLP

As Dr. Shawyer uses hypnotherapy and NLP in the context of medical consultations to help you achieve wholeness and health, eligible patients will receive Medicare funding for these services. However, due to the way Medicare funds long appointments we are unable to fully bulk bill this service. So patients who wish to achieve wholeness and wellbeing in this way will be asked to pay a single, relatively small priced, co-payment covering the whole therapy before beginning treatment. Please contact our reception staff for more details.
