“I have worked with Michael Pattinson from Acumen Hypnotherapy for nearly 2 years. I came to him as a professional athlete looking to take my fighting career to the next level. The mental aspect of the fight game, or any sport, is critical to performance. Michael has helped me on multiple levels. On a personal level by exploring some deeper issues that impact the way I function and cope day to day, and most significantly my sense of self-worth. In doing so, Michael has helped me build my confidence and self-belief, and reframe the way I think. In the lead up to competition he has helped reduce anxiety and stress which has been critical in keeping me focused, which in turn has helped with my concentration and performance. In terms of preparation for the fight itself, Michael has shown me the power of mental visualisation. We spend time rehearsing the fight through hypnosis bringing into awareness all the important elements whilst recreating the experience. This type of work has been critical to my mental preparation and its benefits have been evident in my performances. When I came to Michael, my goal was to become the Australian Boxing Champion and I have achieved that!”

There are many myths about hypnotherapy. It is important to dispel these before any hypnosis takes place.

  • You cannot be controlled nor made to do anything against your will.
  • You have to be receptive to the suggested changes otherwise you’re unlikely to respond.
  • Motivation is important
  • Nearly every client says the process is deeply relaxing and stress reducing in it of itself.

Hypnosis FAQ

What happens if I can’t be hypnotised?

According to studies, 90% of people can be hypnotised (1). When someone ‘can’t’ be, it’s generally due to unnecessary fear. The most important thing to note is that in a therapeutic context, clients are always in control.

How many sessions do I need?

I see most clients for an average of six sessions. I have clients that see me more often.

What are your fees?

Payment is due before of each consultation, packages are purchased at the beginning of the first consultation.

Missed appointments or cancellations with less than 24 hours notice will be charged unless they can be rescheduled within the fortnight.

Should everyone be hypnotised?

No. Not everyone should be hypnotised. If you suffer from schizophrenia or psychosis, you will probably need a referral from your GP.

If there’s ever any doubt about hypnosis, you must see your GP or qualified health professional before hand.
