Addiction Hypnotherapy

Many people may find that at some point in their life they are addicted to something it can range from alcohol, cigarettes, drugs, food, chocolate and gambling to name just a few. This addiction has become destructive as it has taken over their life in a way that negatively impacts the quality of their life. They have become a slave to the addiction and the rest of their life takes a back seat to this addiction.
It can affect relationships, work and many other aspects of their life, to the point where it may cause breakdowns in those relationships. People usually start these problems in an innocent fashion, a drink after work to relax and alleviate anxiety or gambling for fun and to take mind off some other stuff going on their life. Then over time it becomes a problem that has gotton out of control that they cannot deal with.
At Synergy Hypnotherapy Melbourne, we can help stop addictions using addiction Hypnotherapy. Read More on: addiction Hypnotherapy.


Anger Hypnotherapy

Anger is a high energy state that can cause great distress in our lives. People who experience anger usually experience anger in a way that they are not present to it because it appears that they have anxiety, depression but the driving emotion which results in these is the anger. Anger in most people is usually manifested in their mind and body, where they don’t act on it externally by fighting with others or smashing objects. They will tend to yell and scream in their head, often calling people names or labelling them, ranting on about them all in the privacy of their mind, this is still anger and with all the toxic effects it has on your body. This anger releases stress chemicals in the body which over a long period of time can cause many health problems.

Hypnosis for Anxiety

Anxiety is an increasing problem in Australia today anxiety disorders are increasing at alarming rates. The types of anxiety people are suffering from today are Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Social Anxiety, Panic Attacks, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Specific Phobia. People suffering from anxiety may experience some of these symptoms. Tightness in muscles, edginess, restlessness, shakes, sleeping issues, racing mind, confusion, concentration difficulties and tiredness. In some cases like panic attacks the symptoms are so severe it can incapacitate the person completely affecting their life, and in all cases it will negatively impact the persons life.

Depression Hypnotherapy

If you suffer from depression you may experience the following symptoms. Always sad, lack of energy, no interest in anything even those you used to enjoy, low self esteem, no confidence, cant concentrate, move slowly, sleeping problems, want to sleep all the time, cannot make decisions, eating problems either to much or not enough and even wanting to be dead.

While depression may be the big problem, you may experience anxiety, anger and other negative emotions which causes the depression you may not be present to them due to the depression masking them. We all experience sadness at some time or another in our life when things happen that bring us down, and most of us will move through it to get back to normal while others remain stuck, unable to do anything. Antidepressants may help in the short term however they only tend to alleviate or mask the symptoms not remove them, in a way similar to the way pain medication works.

Fitness Hypnotherapy

Many people would like to exercise and improve their health but in my experience they have lots of reasons and excuses not to exercise. These range from I don’t have enough time, Im to tied, I cant be bothered, it hurts, Im sore, I don’t like the way guys look at me, I feel embarrassed are a few examples. Lots of people will even say I love exercise, and really like the way I feel after wards the problem is they cannot actually get over the initial hump of committing to and doing the exercise. 

If you’re an athlete you know that sport is 90% mental and the difference between the top athletes is not skill or fitness but usually mental attitude. What do you think of your sport? How do you feel about it? What do you say to your self about it and to your self while training and competing? The big one what do you focus on when you are training and competing, this will determine how well you do. With some clients I have had they have experience a range of emotions like anger, anxiety, tiredness etc while competing and training which detracts from their performance, concentration and wastes valuable energy. I have also had boxers who are worried about weather or not the opponent likes them or not while in a match, this is not what you should be thinking of, you instead should be focusing on winning the match in a predefined way i.e. knock out in the 3 round.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

IBS has many symptoms like diarrhoea, constipation or bloating. Doctors think this is due to interference in the communication from the brain to the digestive track causing the digestive track to function abnormally, by speeding up or slowing down the processing of food consumed. Most doctors are at a loss as to how to treat IBS however they have recognised the following factors influence IBS symptoms. Eating certain types of food, medicines, hormones, trapped gas and anxiety or stress.

Doctors agree that Hypnotherapy is a very useful tool in helping alleviate the symptoms or completely eliminating them in 9 out of 10 patients with IBS.

At Synergy Hypnotherapy Melbourne, we can help stop IBS using IBS Hypnotherapy. Read More on: IBS Hypnotherapy.


Obsessive Compulsive Disorders (OCD)

Is a type of anxiety where the person completes ritualistic type behaviour with compulsive thoughts and concerns where people do constant checking of things like, locking doors and windows, checking taps, checking power points, and many other things. They are also concerned with cleanliness, germs, washing, cleaning etc. They will usually experience anxiety if they don’t complete the ritual, only after they have completed the ritual can they get some relief. They usually have constant thoughts provoking them into checking things, the voices or thoughts in their mind usually are anxious and relentless, it is only when they have done the ritual do they get some peace. They can also have compulsive thoughts about health and other things which cause them to be anxious as well. This will tend to get worse as they get older. This wastes lots of time during the course of their day, to a point where it may completely disable them. The individual may experience the following emotions, anger, anxiety, frustration, helplessness, depression and guilt. These emotions will tend to make the condition worse.

Phobia Hypnotherapy

Phobia is similar to panic attacks where a person experiences severe physical symptoms which incapacitate them, they can include shaking, sweating palms, sick in stomach, dizziness, numbness, weakness, feeling cold, hot flushes, going red in face etc. Phobia’s usually come in 3 categories Social, Spatial and Specific.

Social Phobia is where the person fears negative judgements by others, being focus of attention, looking silly or being embarrassed. Examples include: Fear of general social situations, Fear of self expression, crowds or large groups, public speaking, eating in public, leaving the house (Agoraphobia).

Spatial Phobia is fear of heights, closed spaces, open spaces or specific places. It can vary in intensity and the factor that triggers it, for example I have had clients who are ok with height up to 4 stories then above that they are not.

Specific Phobia includes all other phobias not mentioned above the person can have fear of trains, dogs, cats, spiders, birds, picket fences, flying, storms etc.

Postnatal Depression

Big events in our life can cause anxiety and depression at normal times so it is no surprise that having a baby can trigger off exactly these symptoms, as parents become overwhelmed with the changes in life and responsibility they now have. Women can experience depression either while pregnant anti-natal depression and also after birth of the baby postnatal depression.

The symptoms range from crying a lot, sleeping problems, fear of being alone, feeling they are a bad mother, anger, irritability, hating self or baby, no sex drive, depression, cant cope, anxiety and thoughts of harming oneself. Many of the symptoms for postnatal and anti-natal depression are the same as normal depression

At Synergy Hypnotherapy Melbourne, we can help stop postnatal and anti-natal depression using depression Hypnotherapy. Read More on: Postnatal Depression Hypnotherapy.


Quit Smoking Hypnosis

People have usually tried all the different methods, gum, nicotine patches etc all for no result they are still smoking, or they gave up for a while then something happened and they started again. This is based on the premise that your addicted to nicotine however studies have shown that nicotine leaves your body in 2 days. Then there are all the people who have given up with no withdrawal so what is going on here. Your’e not addicted to the nicotine your have a psychological addiction.

Many smokers know what their triggers are like driving a car, drinking, socialising, after food, breaks at work, TV etc. These activities appear to be the cause of the smoking but if we dig a little deeper we will find that smokers usually feel stressed, anxious, sad, lonely, bored, angry or some other emotions or a combination of them, just before these activities. This is what is really causing them to smoke because when they do smoke, they will go into a meditative trance similar to a hypnotic trance where they zone out and gain some relief from the emotions that are making them feel bad. The move into a more relaxed state, have a look at anyone smoking outside a building, you will see they are a million miles away. Also the act of smoking is similar to Indian yoga breathing techniques that are used to help people relax and meditate, you know you breath in slowly pause then breath out slowly several times in a row, this activates a relaxation trigger in people. So by stopping all of these habitual and emotional triggers we can stop people smoking and at the same time improve their quality of life.

Sleeping Disorders Hypnotherapy

Lots of people suffer from sleeping related issues like insomnia, snoring, teeth grinding, sleep walking, sleep talking, and bed wetting.

People who have difficulties sleeping ofter describe how their mind is racing thinking of this and that, they also as a consequence experience anxiety, anger, frustration and other emotions that all contribute to making the issue worse. They may find it hard getting to sleep, waking up during the night, having trouble getting back to sleep, waking up too early, feeling tired and that sleep is not refreshing. This often cause a host of associated issues like concentration issues, irritability, impaired work performance, lack of energy, tiredness. This may cause anxiety and other issues in other parts of their life like work.

Snoring, teeth grinding, sleep walking, sleep talking and bed wetting are problems that are controlled at a subconscious level because most of this occurs when you are asleep, so the conscious mind has no input into these behaviours. So this needs to be addressed at a subconscious level, anxiety and other emotional issues will contribute to these issues so we will need to address them by getting your unconscious to stop doing this when your are asleep, and also when your awake you need to relax more.

At Synergy Hypnotherapy Melbourne, we can help people stop sleeping disorders using sleeping Hypnotherapy. Read More on: sleeping Hypnotherapy.


Weight Loss Hypnosis

Often weight problems are learned in early childhood, this together with emotional drivers cause us to have problems controlling our weight. There are different types of problems for instance do you bing eat, emotionally eat, eat junk food or may be it is a little more varied a bit of this and a bit of that.

Some of the things we need to work out are you satisfied with a small portion of food or unsatisfied? Can you leave food on your plate? Can you throw that food out? Or do you experience negative emotions when you contemplate this i.e. feel, anxious, feel it is a waste etc. How many times a day to you snack? When and why do you snack this is usually where people comfort eat. So how do you feel before you snack?

Once we get a good idea of how you problems losing weight, then we can begin to work with your subconscious mind to remove any emotional issues around food and retrain your subconscious to do the things you need to for losing weight.

Severe Sleeping Problem


I first came to see Rodney for insomnia…


It had been ongoing for more than 15 years and you name it, I had tried it!


The issues with sleeping had led to various other health concerns and it was taking over my life. I felt totally out of control and functioning normally was a challenge.


2 sessions with Rodney and I slowly started to fall in love with going to bed again.


After a few weeks, I noticed I was sleeping the best I had EVER slept, as well as having beautiful dreams.


Waking up and feeling great was a feeling I had forgotten, and now thanks to Rodney, I have it back

Fear of Heights

Lynda Rohde

Hi Rod


I am just checking back in to let you know I recently conquered my fear of heights on our trip to Europe.


It was a huge ask as we ascended Mt Titlis in Switzerland, as it is over 10000ft high.


I can’t thank you enough for the help and positivity you gave me. Without that I would have missed a beautiful experience. A big thank you again.
