You want change –  I help make it easy.

Hypnosis helps you get rid of what you don’t like, get more of what you do like, and discover what makes you tick.

Why invest in hypnotherapy?

Initiating change at the conscious level can be very difficult. The conscious mind makes up only around 10-12% of our total mind power. By contrast, the subconscious mind encompasses the other 88-90%. This vast portion of our mind houses the unconscious story or programming that influences virtually everything we do. If it isn’t congruent with our conscious desires, it is not hard to see which part of the mind will get its way.

“Hypnotherapy can be used to help you gain control over undesired behaviours or to help you cope better with anxiety or pain. Hypnosis that’s conducted by a trained therapist or health care professional is considered a safe, complementary and alternative medical treatment.”

Becoming a goal machine

Because hypnotherapy is the art of rewriting unconscious programs, it is very effective at turning the subconscious mind into a powerful “goal machine” that works behind the scenes, 24/7, to create positive, lasting changes in our lives. 

Hypnotherapy and Hypnosis provide a direct link to your subconscious mind. The subconscious mind is essentially “Command Central” for all of your memories, fears, habits and beliefs. If you’ve ever experienced self-sabotage, that was your subconscious mind at play.

Hypnosis is one of the quickest and easiest ways for you to reach your goals without needing copious amount of will-power, even if you have tried and failed 10x before!

Hypnotherapy gets your subconscious mind on board

It will require some effort on your part, but the vast majority of my hypnotherapy clients have commented on how easy it was when I helped get their subconscious mind on board!

How can hypnotherapy help you?

The word hypnosis can create various false images, from making people quack like a duck to spooky mind control. To the contrary, hypnotherapy can actually give you the control you want in many areas of your life. I have had success in helping people eliminate fears and anxieties, addictions, releasing stress, increasing confidence, pain control, eating disorders and weight control. I have seen many of my clients quit smoking, eliminate nail biting, hair pulling, teeth clenching and comfortably release their fear of flying, driving, heights, and enclosed spaces, finally living the life they want. This therapy is about opening the door to your subconscious mind, that place where your strength truly lies, and aligning it with the conscious mind thus creating the changes that you want and living the life you deserve.

How can I help as a clinical hypnotherapist?

My goal is to help you, which is why it matters to me that you get exactly what you come in for.

Each hypnotherapy session includes hypnosis and counselling modalities customized to address your specific needs and requests. A standard session lasts 60 minutes, with the exception of the first session, which is 90 minutes.

As a natural born cheerleader for those around me, I bring a motivating enthusiasm and energy to all my sessions. I believe in empowering my clients to recognize their full potential and create continued success within their lives.

I have a proven track record of consistently happy and thriving clients.

Hypnosis facts

Hypnosis is a heightened state of focus, in which the conscious mind is in a relaxed state while the subconscious mind is best receptive to suggestions. People refer to hypnosis as a state where one can concentrate intensely while blocking out distractions.

What is hypnosis like? Imagine being comfortably sitting in a recliner in a completely relaxed state, as you listen to individualized suggestions that are specifically based on your goals. Many of my clients describe hypnosis and hypnotherapy as a mental massage.

Hypnosis does not involve mind control or sleep. You are in control at all times while in hypnosis. All your senses are awake, and alert and you are aware of everything that is being said.

There are no pendulums! Hypnotherapy is very different from what you may have seen on a stage show. That kind of hypnosis is for entertainment and is completely different from therapeutic hypnosis, that is done as a way of creating positive change.

Hypnosis gives you the opportunity to make changes quickly and permanently. The use of hypnosis in a medical context was approved by the British Medical Association in 1955 and by the American Medical Association in 1958.

Everyone has the ability to be hypnotized. Hypnosis is a very natural process that we all experience for a few minutes every day before we fall asleep. The most creative and intelligent people are usually the best subjects.

What my clients have said about my hypnotherapy services

“I highly recommend Debbie Wright as a hypnotherapist and counsellor. I saw her because of a phobia that was interfering with my life. Even though I had “coped” with it at various times, it was always there. This phobic fear had directly to do with my ability to do my work and caused immense stress during the workday and beyond. I experienced a debilitating fight against phobic fear in the performance of necessary work-related tasks. This phobia, which manifested as a “panic attack” when faced with doing certain types of written work, caused secondary problems like procrastination, low productivity, low self-esteem and despair. 

After five sessions with Debbie, I can honestly report that the phobia is 80% resolved. I no longer experience the “panic attack” like symptoms that interfered with my ability to concentrate or the avoidance behaviour that caused so much trouble. I knew my phobia to be “irrational” for a long time and yet no matter the level of insight I had or the therapy I had engaged in, it never really got better. I intend to continue to see Debbie on an ongoing basis to reinforce the healing and move on from conquering a phobia to achieve high levels of concentration and productivity.

I wish I had tried hypnotherapy years ago. It bothers me somewhat to think of the wasted time, though Debbie was quick to point out the learning that took place even in that period of suffering, and not to regret it, but to move on with lessons learned.

Debbie explained hypnotherapy very clearly. She divided the session into two parts. In the first part I articulated the problem and told her what my goals were. The second session involved hypnosis which, to me, felt like a guided meditation while I was in a relaxed, suggestible state. She took my own words, my own articulated hopes, and spoke those words back to me, along with some other related ideas and suggestions, while I was relaxed. There was nothing “weird” about it. In fact, it seems “too good to be true” considering everything I went through struggling against this phobia my whole life. It seems preposterous that 5 straightforward hypnosis sessions, which felt like guided meditation, have “solved” this problem to a large extent. I assumed I would always have to struggle against it or take drugs to mask the symptoms. I am sceptical by nature and really did not expect hypnosis to work. It did. I am a believer.” –

“When I booked my stop smoking session at Wright Therapies there was a part of me that didn’t want it to work as I really enjoyed smoking but Debbie identified why that was and we were able to get me to move on and I’m really grateful to her for that. In just three sessions I went from smoking 20-25 cigarettes a day to becoming a non-smoker. It still blows my mind how this stuff works but it does!!  I can now get more work done as I’m not always nipping out for a cigarette break which ironically has meant that I get on so much better with my boss who I found a bit of a stress head and was the reason I was always popping outside to try and escape from her! Thanks again, plus you’ve saved me a fortune!”. –

Cathy, Auckland

“Working with Debbie has been wonderful! She has helped me on so many different levels. From stopping negative self-talk to conquering my fears. Thank you with all my heart.” –

Pam, Auckland

“In only 4 hypnotherapy sessions with Debbie I have gained new found confidence and self-belief, successfully kicked a chocolate and sugar habit without any sense of difficulty or deprivation, and adjusted my eating habits to a sustainable and healthy state, losing 4 kgs in the process. The treatment is enjoyable and listening to the tapes is a highlight of each day. I can only highly recommend this treatment, it works, easily, enjoyably, and successfully.”
