As a clinical hypnotherapist with membership with the Australian Hypnotherapists Association and Guild of Australian Hypnotherapists, you may be eligible for discounts through your private health provider. I keep my fees low, but if you can get a discount, that’s even better! These health fund lists change regularly, so it’s best to check with your health fund provider and contact myself to see if you are eligible.
