Cairns Hypnotherapist - Matt Savant

Cairns hypnotherapist Matt Savant is a very competent and compassionate professional. He’s been treating clients for almost a decade and is very experienced with using hypnotherapy as a tool for healing and change.

He first came across hypnotherapy around 22 years ago and was so impressed by it, he decided to learn all he could about hypnosis and hypnotherapy. This was done through research and study, as well as attendance and participation in many trainings.

For Matt, the power of hypnotherapy really came into its own when his marriage broke down. Like many others in this situation, deep depression followed divorce. After seeing multiple Doctors and being prescribed multiple anti-depressants, all of which had horrendous side effects, Matt decided to deliver some self-help. He turned to hypnosis and lifted himself out of his depressed state. He went on to become certified by the American Board of Hypnotherapy (the largest Hypnotherapy organisation in the world) and today, he is a leading Cairns hypnotherapist.

Have had two sessions of hypnotherapy with Matt so far and it has been truly life changing for me. I feel so much more positive and confident within myself. I’m able to completely relax myself at any moment. In our most recent session, I felt a massive weight come off my shoulders. Looking forward to the remaining sessions. I have spent years going to psychology appointments and feel I have had a lot more benefit from my short time with Matt. Thank you so much for helping me. Extremely grateful for the experience.


Matt was very personable and easy to talk to. He gave me the motivation I needed to improve my health and lifestyle. I definitely recommend Matt as a professional person, who knows what he's doing.


Such a wonderful first experience. Very relaxed. I felt at ease the minute I walked into the office. It is something hard to describe, but the total feeling afterwards was refreshed, energised, relaxed, happy, inspired, I could go on. Don't hesitate, book in to have your own experience, you won't regret it. Thanks ever so much.


Definitely recommend. Matt was professional and helpful and while I was a little nervous, he completely put my mind at ease.


The free introduction session blew my mind! A little nervous to start with, but Matt is thorough in his explanations, and his practices are amazing. I was a little sceptical, as I'd seen a hypnotherapist before, with no results, but I'm so glad I went to see Matt! Will definitely be back.


I can highly recommend everyone take advantage of the free introduction appointment with Matt. I am looking forward to delving deeper into some things that may be holding me back. You need help to figure out what can be going on with your subconscious mind that can be stopping you from reaching your goals.


I had no idea in how many areas of life hypnotherapy could help me, seriously! The intro session was a great way to get to know Matt and hypnotherapy in general. It took away any concerns I might have had. Now I am on my journey and feel so empowered, relieved, supported and free to make better choices for myself. Matt and Aleisha are an outstanding team that I am so grateful to have found. Try this if you are serious about wanting to tackle an area in your life where you feel stuck, whatever it is!


This has been the most amazing experience. I was sceptical of being hypnotised, but I took a leap of faith and was put into the professional hands of Matthew Savant. My main goal was to quit smoking, after years of trying everything I was unsuccessful until now. I had 3 sessions with Matthew and it has been the most rewarding move I have ever done, I am now a NON-SMOKER. With Matt’s professionalism and experience, he has helped me in so many other ways as-well, highly recommended to all! Every session brings positivity and it has truly helped me with my personal life as-well. Thank-you Matt!


Hypnotherapy is a great tool to help assist in a variety of situations. I used it years ago to help with some weight loss and I know others who have had great success quitting smoking. Helping Hand Hypnotherapy have an excellent reputation and can set you on the right path to achieve your goals.


Honestly, I didn't think I would write a review about hypnotherapy - ever. When I met Matt in our wonderful networking group Tradingmate, I thought to myself "nope not for me. No way will I even try the free intro." Yet I heard wonderful things of how people overcame anxiety, trauma, addictions, you name it. I started to be curious, as I was at a point in my life where I felt stuck and I couldn't really figure out why. In the end, I did the free intro and then signed up to do 3 sessions. I felt so comfortable and all my fear of someone else being in my head, or in control, were unfounded. After the first session I didn't really feel much different, and was wondering if it was the right decision. However, the second session blew me away. It is hard to describe how I felt - a mixture of freedom, joy, grace and lightness with a pinch of excitement. You know when you are a little kid and something new is happening? Kinda that feeling because you walk out as a new person somehow. The emotional strings from the past are not there anymore, the memories yes but not the strings that seem to hold you back. Seriously, try it.


If anyone's considering trying hypnotherapy - for trauma, habits, concentration, stress, phobias, empowerment, you name it - I would absolutely recommend Matt from Helping Hand Hypnotherapy! You'll be in expert hands, his service to and care for his clients is second-to-none and the results you'll see and feel are incredible! In just a few face-to-face sessions and by following Matt's programs, I've seen significant improvements in my productivity, confidence and focus, gained control over my stress and anxiety and have introduced healthy habits into my life that I've never been able to before - all of which I've kept up for over eighteen months! Hypnotherapy was the key to unlocking it all, and I can't thank Matt enough for showing me the power of my subconscious!


I would like everybody to know about Helping Hand Hypnotherapy. Matt and Aleisha are very kind people, Matt is an easy going and calm professional who helped me clear my negative thinking, the pain of loss of my Mum and Dad and also everyday stress. I have been carrying these for far too long and they were stopping me from living a happy life. Matt helped me into a very relaxed state and my troubles were erased. Now I am at peace! Do not suffer, do not hold on to pain or get stuck in life when there is help like this at hand! Thank you Matt and Aleisha. I will never forget what you have done for me.


As a smoker of 40 years, I never thought quitting was an option. Having previously tried many ways to quit including medications and patches, I had heard from a friend who had success in hypnotherapy to quit smoking but was unconvinced that it would work for me. For all my smoking life I always had the feeling that if I wasn’t a smoker, my life would be better, including such things as my health and my relationships with people. Within Matt’s sessions of the hypnotherapy for quitting smoking, I gained a healthier mindset to overcome the addiction. Now as a smoke free person I have a clearer, healthier mind and a lot more confidence within myself. As I went through these sessions, Matt discovered some deeply rooted problems and emotions from my childhood, that had been weighing me down for over 50 years. Matt taught me certain ways that I’m able to come to terms to accept these traumas and feel comfortable about my past. I was able to detach the emotions that came with the traumas and have relief to move forward in my life. As of today, I am a much more happy, self-assured and optimistic person. My close family mentioned straight away that they can see a difference in both my emotional and physical state. They say I have become a lot more confident and appear to have a much more peaceful mind.


Matt and Alisha are a great team helping the people of Cairns to get your mind right. I highly recommend going in for the free trial. It has opened my eyes to what is possible. I have been able to extend my goal of breath-hold diving past my previous best by 30%!


There are so many amazing styles of self-help to choose from and for me personally I enjoyed this method a lot. It might not be for everyone, but worth trying to find your groove. They got me on the path of tapping into different styles of self-help meditation and taking action towards my business goals (business owners, definitely worth the try if you're feeling stuck). Thanks again guys!


I wish I met Matt earlier and learnt some cool mind hacks. I walked away with tools I can use for my daily routine to feel relaxed and confident. I would recommend this to anyone looking to boost their productivity!


My daughter has been kidnapped by her father in the past, and even though she’d returned to me and she is now safe, she continued to suffer from anxiety and severe nightmares. This caused an increase of her fears during daytime and reluctance to go to sleep at night time. She had had weekly counselling for the past six months. I bought an ‘Angel Teddy’ for her and paid for a consult with an overseas ‘nightmare specialist’. However, no intervention could stop her nightmares. I was tipped to go to a ‘hypnotherapist’ and found Matt on the net. I was a bit reluctant, as he was a man and I wasn’t sure if my daughter would rapport to him. But the first session I could stay in the same room with her, which made her feel safe. Matt videotapes all his sessions for security reasons as well as having his team member Aleisha there at the counter. After the first session, my daughter was able to sleep again before 10pm, in her own bed instead of mine. Two days later, after the second session, she no longer suffered from the nightmares and reported to have had a ‘good night of sleep’. In the third session she reported to me she was able to deeply relax and afterwards she started working on a ‘happy diary’. She still feels anxious now and then, but her overall wellbeing has improved so much in just a week time and three treatments, it’s amazing. And the best thing is: no more nightmares. ‘Helping Hand’ supported the increasement of wellbeing and happiness of my eleven-year-old daughter for which I am very grateful.


So just recently I realised how easy I was managing life, how smooth things are going. Of course life isn't perfect, but I seem to find strategies to handle all situations with ease. After many years of anxiety after losing my son to suicide, I struggled just to breath some days. Getting through the day was tricky. Wall came up when dealing with almost anything in life, but I remained positive I could heal with natural resources. Well a year ago I did some sessions with Matt to help me get me back and he gave me amazing strategies to back up my hypnosis treatments in between sessions. I can't express enough how much value it's brought into my daily life. Thank you Matt and Aleisha for the magic of you guys and your treatments.


I highly recommend Matt and Aleisha. They run a very professional, friendly, helpful, warm, safe and inviting environment, that encourages wholesome wellness from the inside out, so we can get on with our lives and fulfil what we want. In other words, just put the past behind us and get on and get stuff done! I can't recommend them highly enough.


Matt, you are extremely gifted, and very good at what you do, and you do it well! Aleisha, the support and compassion you offer, with strength and grace, is also gratefully acknowledged! I look forward to using the wonderful gift of trance, on a daily basis, to become the best that I can be! Thank you both for coming into my life at exactly the right moment!
