Gold Coast's Leading Anxiety &Mental Health Hypnotherapy Expert Phil Cardow

Hi I’m Phil, Father, husband, clinical hypnotherapist, NLP master Practitioner, and anxiety, trauma, and addiction release specialist.

After spending many years with crippling anxiety and depression I myself used hypnotherapy to deal with own mental health, to quit smoking and control my drinking. I now use these same techniques to help people everywhere to take back control of their lives!

The majority of my work is helping adult and teens to break free from anxiety, trauma, pain and addiction, by addressing the root causes of these issues.
I honestly can’t express the joy I feel when someone tells me that their life is better now because of the work we have done together.

I have now helped hundreds of clients from all over Australia to overcome anxiety and related mental illness, and to stop smoking through a combination of highly effective, natural and 100% drug-free techniques.

My gentle and caring nature, extensive knowledge, professional experience, and true commitment to the happiness and health of my clients allows me to achieve an incredible results when helping my client’s with anxiety, trauma, phobias, panic attacks and stress and addictions.

How Does Hypnosis Work?

During hypnosis, your body relaxes and your thoughts become more focused. Like other relaxation techniques, hypnosis lowers blood pressure and heart rate, and changes certain types of brain wave activity. In this relaxed state, you will feel at ease physically yet fully awake mentally, and you may be highly responsive to suggestion. Your conscious mind becomes less alert and your subconscious mind becomes more focused.

There are several stages of hypnosis:

  • Reframing the problem
  • Becoming relaxed, then absorbed (deeply engaged in the words or images presented by a hypnotherapist)
  • Dissociating (letting go of critical thoughts)
  • Responding (complying with a hypnotherapist’s suggestions)
  • Returning to usual awareness
