Our Treatment Focus


Our focus is to help individuals achieve their goals and change unwanted habits, behaviours or limiting beliefs. We achieve this by providing a neutral safe space, listening to your concerns, and customizing a hypnotherapy treatment plan based on your own individual needs.

Our Sessions

All hypnotherapy sessions are private and confidential. Personalised or general recordings are provided as appropriate in MP3 or WAV format for clients to listen to at home to reinforce the changes we have made. Session times vary depending on the needs of the individual and our prices are per session rather than time-based.

Online Live Stream Sessions or Pre-Recorded Packages are also available from the comfort and safety of your own home.

    I can't thank Juliette enough for helping me quit smoking.
    It has been surprisingly so easy, I still wake up some days astonished that I no longer
    … More smoke.
    I highly recommend the Hypnosis Clinic.

    I cannot recommend Juliette highly enough. She is professional, knowledgeable and compassionate. The treatment I received was highly effective - much more … More so than I ever expected. I have had hypnosis several times and in the past and found Juliette to be the best therapist I've had. I am so grateful for her help. It has made a significant change to my life.

    I went to this clinic after deciding my life needed to change. I lost my daughter 5 years ago and since then haven't carried much about anything. … More My weight has ballooned and my eating habits are atrocious. I have had hypnosis before in dealing with my daughters death and it was good so thought I will try again.
    Well 3 months have passed it is the Christmas season. My weight is still going down. And I have lost over 3 Kilo's. My main change is drinking water. I make healthy eating choices without a second thought. Yes I have had a good share of Christmas treats but probably half what I did last year. My exercise is next to tackle although with the new energy I have my garden has never looked so lovely.
    Juliette I have so much to thank you for. My life has turned a big corner. I am so happy I came to see you. And now I will be able to play those games with my wee grandson and not feel puffed and sick. Thank you Thank you Thank you

    I saw Juliette about 5 months ago now and can't recommend her services enough. I found the whole experience positive and felt very safe and listened … More to. I have had such a positive outcome. I had the Gastro Band sessions and have to date lost 15kg and exercising heaps compared to in the past.

    I absolutely loved working with Juliette. I felt differently almost straight away, it was amazing! I'll admit I was slightly sceptical but that went … More out the window pretty quickly. The changes I've made and the decisions I make on a daily basis are so effortless, I eat so much less now. I also love that I don't really have to actually cut anything out of my diet. I still get hungry on my long 10hour night shifts but drinking more water and just a piece of fruit is more than enough in-between meals. It has been so much easier and generally better than I initially thought. The recordings are a fantastic bonus that I listen to everyday and keep me motivated to stay on track.
    Thank you so much Juliette 🙂

    Absolutely life changing for my partner and I. We have both lost weight and no longer have cravings for sweet treats. We are definitely living healthier … More lives now. If this is something you’re considering, go for it! There is nothing more important than your health.

How we can help

Virtual Gastric Band

The VGB hypnosis for weight loss program has a 95% success rate in clinical trials in the UK. 2 options are available: the Standard package consists of 4 sessions, each a week apart, with recordings to listen to daily at home. The Premium package includes 2 extra sessions with 2 extra recordings for maximum benefit. This program follows a set script however Juliette personalises client sessions for individual needs. The VGB program is generally aimed at those whose main issues are with portion control and snacking. It is not a "diet" nor does it focus on restriction or deprivation; it is a sustainable healthy eating approach and mindset that allows for comfortable and easy weight loss.

Quit Smoking

Our Quit Smoking hypnosis package consists of 2 sessions, 1 or 2 days apart. A recording is provided for you to listen to at home to reinforce the changes and make the transition to a permanent non-smoker smoothly and comfortably. Hypnotherapy has one of the highest success rates for stopping smoking, at around 80 to 85% compared to prescription medication and patches at around 22 to 30%.

Weight Control & Healthy Lifestyle

For those who want to lose weight and maintain a healthy lifestyle routine we offer a 2-session hypnosis package that is tailored for your individual needs and includes recordings to use at home. The hypnotherapy sessions are usually a week apart. Our healthy lifestyle routine package is not about dieting or deprivation, its about losing the diet mentality, the self-sabotaging part of us, and simply enjoying choosing real, natural unprocessed foods in smaller portions, being active and drinking plenty of water.

Depression and Anxiety

Depression, Fear & Anxiety


Depression, fear, and anxiety are some of the most common and uncomfortable emotions that we can experience at some point in our lives. Through hypnotherapy, we are able to help you recover motivation, perspective, and joy that you once had in your life. We can also help overcome fears and phobias, often in just 1 or 2 sessions.


IBS & Gut Directed Hypnosis


Often IBS symptoms present themselves after a period of stress such as a relationship break-up or loss of a job or a loved one. Other times it is food related and the discomfort can have knock-on effects throughout your life. Gut Directed hypnosis is a proven technique to alleviate these symptoms and Juliette is the only South Island hypnotherapist with this qualification and who works with local Gastroenterology specialists.

Sleep & Stress


Stress can result in a variety of adverse symptoms, including a restless night's sleep. For some people the issue is falling asleep and others it's staying asleep. By using hypnotherapy and the recordings we provide for use at home, we can teach you relaxation techniques and reprogram your subconscious mind to allow for a more restful night's sleep, feeling more refreshed and alert during the day.
