How Much Does Hypnotherapy Cost in Australia? (Price Guide)

Table of Contents

Hypnotherapy is growing in its presence and utilisation in recent years and is becoming well known as a therapeutic approach for a wide range of issues. Sessions can range from quitting smoking and weight loss/eating habits, to managing stress and anxiety. If you’re considering hypnotherapy as an option, one of your first questions might be, “How much does hypnotherapy cost?” In this blog post, we’ll explore the factors that influence the hypnotherapy cost in Australia and considerations to keep in mind, to  provide you with a general idea of what to expect.

What is the average price of hypnotherapy services throughout Australia?

Hypnotherapy costs in Australia can vary based on factors such as the type of session, therapist, and location. Typically, a hypnotherapy session in Australia may range from $150 to $250 on average.

Factors Affecting Hypnotherapy Costs


The cost of hypnotherapy sessions can vary significantly based on where you live in Australia. Major cities tend to have higher living costs, which can be reflected in the pricing of services. In rural areas or smaller towns, you might find lower prices.

Experience and Qualifications

The qualifications and experience of the hypnotherapist can also affect the cost. Highly experienced hypnotherapists might charge more for their expertise. However, their track record and knowledge can often make it a worthwhile investment.

Session Type

The specific focus of your hypnotherapy can also influence the price. Sessions aimed at addressing specific issues, such as quit smoking, lose weight, or phobia treatments, may be priced differently from sessions focused on general well-being, personal development, or stress reduction. These specialised sessions often require a deeper understanding of the specific issue and may involve more complex techniques, or include other add-ons, which can contribute to a higher hypnotherapy cost.

Session Duration

Hypnotherapy sessions can vary in length, typically ranging from 45 minutes and up to 1.5-2 hours in some cases. The duration can influence the hypnotherapy cost, with longer sessions generally costing more. Longer sessions often go deeper into the issue too.

Delivery of Hypnotherapy Service

Hypnotherapy can be delivered in-person and also online, with online sessions being just as effective. In-person sessions may come at a higher rate, while some practitioners may offer the online sessions at a lower rate. Plus you get to the session in the comfort of your own home.

Private Health Funds

Health funds vary, and they offer a range of policy options. Some policies cover specific services while others may include those services for new policies but not for older ones. It’s advisable to contact your health fund to check if your desired service is covered. Ultimately, the responsibility for ensuring your coverage lies with you, the person making the claim. In Australia, having private health insurance from a health fund enables you to receive treatments. The extent of coverage and the specific benefits vary based on your chosen policy.

Typical Hypnotherapy Session Costs & Initial Consultation

The cost of a single hypnotherapy session in Australia ranged from approximately $100 to $250 AUD. This range provides a general idea of what to expect, but it’s important to understand that prices can differ significantly based on the factors mentioned above.

Specialised Sessions (e.g., quite smoking, weight loss, specific phobias): Hypnotherapy sessions targeted at specific issues that require a more in-depth approach generally fall within the range of $150 to $250 AUD per session. These sessions may involve additional pre-session assessments, personalised treatment plans, and follow-up consultations to ensure lasting results. At The Good Health Coach we offer two specialised hypnotherapy services for Quitting Smoking & Lose Weight.

Package Deals: Many hypnotherapists offer package deals for clients who wish to commit to multiple sessions. These packages often come at a discounted rate per session, ultimately reducing the overall cost of the treatment. The pricing and structure of these packages can vary, and it’s important to remember that hypnotherapy can take more than one session to achieve the desired outcome, so often a package is a better option.

When considering the cost of hypnotherapy, also consider the benefit of the outcome. For example, the amount of money that you would save when you quit smoking can be thousands of dollars for the year, and ofcourse the additional health benefits. There’s also the health benefits of losing weight, managing stress, and any other results you may seek with hypnotherapy. 

Selecting a Hypnotherapist

While hypnotherapy cost is a factor, it’s essential to look at the qualifications and reputation of the hypnotherapist. Hypnotherapists are also often trained in other modalities or backgrounds, so you may wish to consider this in your selection too.

It’s also essential to feel comfortable and trust your hypnotherapist. The therapeutic relationship is a crucial component of the success of the sessions. Choose a practitioner with whom you feel comfortable with for your sessions.

Hypnotherapy can be a valuable tool for addressing a variety of issues and improving your overall well-being. When considering hypnotherapy in Australia, it’s crucial to understand that costs can vary based on location, practitioner experience, session type, and duration. While cost is a factor, the most important thing is to find a hypnotherapist who can help you achieve your goals and improve your quality of life.

Whether you seek hypnotherapy for stress reduction, weight loss and eating habits, smoking cessation, or any other issue, the right hypnotherapist can provide you with valuable support and guidance. As you embark on your hypnotherapy journey, take the time to research and select a practitioner who aligns with your needs. Ultimately, your investment in hypnotherapy can lead to positive and transformative results in various aspects of your life.
