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 almost a decade. 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, Matt 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.

Helping Hand Hypnotherapy - Administration Manager Aleisha Bartholomew

He came across Hypnotherapy around 21 yrs ago and fell in love with it so 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 his marriage breakdown 5 yrs later, 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 turned to hypnosis instead and lifted himself out of his depressed state permanently. From this success, he went on to become certified by the American Board of Hypnotherapy (the largest Hypnotherapy organization in the world). Discovering how effective it is at addressing peoples issues quickly and without the client re-living any bad events/trauma after experiencing his own problems and doing this work with himself, he’s been able to help a lot of clients end their depression and a myriad of other mental health issues.

Hypnotherapy is also very effective at placing a client in a state of mind which allows other therapies to be applied quickly and easily, so he has extensive experience and study in many other modalities aswell which enhances his clients hypnotherapy results. About 7 years ago Matt set up the Helping Hand Hypnotherapy clinic 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.
