A Change At The Clinic

Brisbane Hypnosis Clinic, incorporating New Farm Hypnotherapy, has recently undergone a significant change. After almost 25 years of practice in New Farm, we have now moved to Hawthorne in the inner east of Brisbane, with 2 of our 4 therapists also making that move.

Antoine Matarasso, who established the practice back in 1998, is now looking to other opportunities to develop the profile of hypnotherapy, as well as the professional practice of therapists around the country.

Katina Gleeson will now be running the practice and takes on the role of principal therapist of Brisbane Hypnosis Clinic.

While Antoine will continue his association with Brisbane Hypnosis Clinic, he will not be seeing any new clients. We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the privilege of working with you over these many years and Katina looks forward to continued working together to achieve the improved health and wellbeing you are seeking.
