About Advanced Hypnotherapy - Hypnotherapy in Sydney
It’s important to choose the right Clinical Hypnotherapist to achieve the best possible results.
Hello. My name is Barry Shirley and I specialise in helping people live happy and enjoyable lives.
I have helped hundreds of people stop addictions, eliminate anxiety and stress, build confidence and self-esteem, lose weight, stop fears, and achieve many other changes. These also include eliminating fear of public speaking, fear of flying, improving sports performance, controlling anger and sexual problems.
5 STAR RATING RECEIVED FROM NAT CONCERNING SMOKING & ALCOHOL
"Barry is absolutely the 'real deal'. He is a lovely, caring person who firstly succesfully helped me quit smoking (I was a smoker for more than 25 years) and had tried every way to stop. I haven't had a cigarette in 8 years.
And then to help me control my drinking - I was drinking too much and needed to stop. I have had friends use other hypnotherapy places for addictions without results so wouldn't bother seeing anyone but Barry.
I would Highly recommend!"

Myths of hypnosis
Entertainment hypnosis, films and books can add confusion to what hypnosis really is.
You are ALWAYS in control and will remember everything. Nobody can make you say or do what you don't want.
Hypnosis can be described as being in a daydream state. You are aware of your surroundings and can hear background sounds but nothing really bothers you.
You will feel a profound state of relaxation, peace and even bliss.
