Helping Hand Hypnotherapy - Clinical Hypnotherapist Matt Savant


Matt Savant is a Cairns local and a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist with the American Board of Hypnotherapy. He has been interested in and studying hypnosis for over 21 years and has been seeing clients for over 8 years. The use of Hypnotherapy to help people make a permanent and positive change in their lives is his passion and purpose.

After a lifetime of study and research into the mind and how it works, he found most methods of helping people took a lot of time and therefore money to address. This concerned him as he wanted to help as many people as possible. 21 Years ago he came across Hypnotherapy and started using it, he found how effective it is at addressing peoples issues quickly and without the client re-living any bad events/trauma after experiencing his own problems. 16 years ago after a marriage breakdown, Matt slumped into deep depression. After seeing multiple Doctor’s and being prescribed anti-depressants which had horrendous side affects, then trying different anti-depressants with different side affects, a year had gone by. He then used self-hypnosis to lift himself out of his depressed state permanently. Since having this personal experience and doing this work on himself he’s been able to help a lot of clients end their depression.

Hypnotherapy is also very effective at placing a client in a state of mind which allows other therapies to be applied quickly and easily. He decided to learn all he could about Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy and read/watched/studied everything he could find on the subject as well as attending many training events. After being certified by the American Board of Hypnotherapy (the largest Hypnotherapy organization in the world), 6 years ago he set up our clinic Helping Hand Hypnotherapy which has grown every year, all from word of mouth from happy clients.

Matt also has a keen interest in Health & Fitness, he was the owner and manager of a Health Food store and was a Personal Trainer for many years which compliments his Hypnotherapy expertise perfectly and aids in helping his clients maintain a healthy lifestyle, mind and body. Today, Matt and his fiancee Aleisha maintain their personal health and fitness by meditating, training both in the gym and doing outdoor activities such as the Red Arrow and trying to keep up with their two young children.
