What is Hypnotherapy?

Hypnotherapy is a quick way to achieve a relaxed and focused state of consciousness which is similar to that experienced during meditation. Deep relaxation is healthy for the mind. However this altered state of awareness can also be used to improve your quality of life in many different ways and help you to change the behaviours you want to change.

A good hypnotherapist is a life coach who helps keep you on track, overcome obstacles and improve on your strengths using positive imagery and positive suggestions.

Bruce and Nami have extensive experience using hypnosis to support people with the following issues to regain control over their lives, belief systems and behaviours:

About Bruce Alexander

With over 20 years experience, and founder of Melbourne Clinical hypnotherapy, Melbourne hypnotherapist, Dr. Bruce Alexander offers private hypnotherapy consultations at his clinic at 77 Willsmere Rd, Kew.

After working for 10 years as a medical researcher, Bruce was seeking a new career where he could support people more directly to improve their own lives.  He was inspired to train as a hypnotherapist based on his own successful experience using hypnotherapy to gain control over exam anxiety while he was at university.

About Nami Nelson

Trained in strategic psychotherapy and clinical hypnotherapy, Nami also brings a rich career and life experience to how she works with clients to support and coach a process of retraining patterns in responses, behaviours and mindsets – using the focus and deep relaxation of hypnosis as a powerful tool. Her career has spanned over 20 years in public heath, health promotion and international development designing, managing and implementing programs that support positive change including shifting perspectives, strengthening healthier behaviours and practices, building new collaborations/relationships and identifying new opportunities/futures and how to get there. Nami’s life experience has provided her the opportunity to witness and harness the immense capacity people have to “rewire” the brain whether it is as a result of injury, trauma or simply responding to change in the environment or social/work context.

The number of sessions per program differs according to each person’s objectives and needs. For example, the Stop Smoking program is usually structured into three sessions. Your individual needs and tailored program will be discussed during the first session.

Stop smoking

Weight loss






Sleep issues & insomnia

Phobias & fears
