About us

Dr Bandara Bandaranayake
Clinical Hypnotherapist/ Psychotherapist 

PhD (Monash); MPhil; BEd (Hons)
  Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy, Diploma in NLP

My philosophy in practicing clinical hypnotherapy and psychotherapy is influenced by my academic and professional training together with my commitment to help my clients.

I believe that our mind is designed to solve issues that faced by our ancestors in the Stone Age. Our mind has constant conflicts with responding to persistent demands of modern technological developments and rapid social and cultural changes, which have made the modern society more complex and challenging. This conflict results in psychological, behavioural and emotional issues in people.
My academic background in sociology, social psychology and educational psychology has provided me with an advantage of understanding this human dynamics.

My professional training in clinical hypnotherapy, psychotherapy, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) has provided me with a wide range of tools and techniques to choose from for treating different psychological, behavioural and emotional issues.

I believe that my clients are resourceful people. Very often our inner resources can be overtaken by our emotions or our own representational systems which distort realities. I elicit inherent positive resources and then develop a framework for change using hypnotherapy and psychotherapy interventions. I allow the therapy process to progress through a strong collaboration with my clients.

As a professional member of the Australian Hypnotherapy Association (AHA), I am obliged to comply with its Codes of Ethics, professional standards and guidelines. The details are accessible at AHA website: www.ahahypnotherapy.org.au

I bring my academic, research, teaching, investigative and behaviour assessment skills to hypnotherapy and psychotherapy endeavour.
