Are you trained to use hypnosis safely with sexual health problems?

Most therapy trainings ignore this area of clinical practice. It’s often seen as too controversial and complicated.
We know, as hypnotists, how fast hypnosis can change our clients’ experiences. What is equally as important is understanding how sex works, what goes wrong, and what therapeutic approaches are needed.

Are you confident to help clients with a broad range of sexual health issues?

It’s so important to understand the interactions between biology, psychology and the sex response cycle when you formulate how you’ll use hypnosis to speed up recovery from sexual health issues. You can’t fake it – you must be highly focused with your hypnotic approaches.

There is no one quick fix helps all. As therapists we must apply the right kind of individual hypnotic technique to each sexual problem and what will work for that person.

Do you want to have the level of skills that enable you to work successfully in this area?

When you help clients with sexual health problems, it can change their lives for the better in many ways. A lot of people feel ashamed, embarrassed and experience a lack of self-worth because of sexual issues that they may have kept hidden for years. Helping them to recover is highly rewarding work.

 “Sex has been huge part of my life both professionally and personally. It’s no secret that I’ve loved and continue to love sex. This is one of the major elements of the work that I do. It puts people at their ease when we do sex therapy and hypnosis. I take a natural, wholesome, everyday, practical approach to allow clients to feel safe, listened to and never judged. People can be fearful and down on themselves around their sexual needs and want fast results. Not only do I educate people’s conscious minds but also their unconscious minds to be able to have a better sex life.”  

- Dr Tracie O'Keefe DCH, BHSc, ND Clinical Hypnotherapist & Naturopath  


You will be able to ask questions throughout the training and will also be doing practical work in small, breakout groups with other participants.

This two-day live training masterclass is being held for the first time and is the latest in my specialist trainings for clinical hypnotherapists and healthcare professionals.

What professionals have said about my presenting & training:

“It was a privilege for the AHA to have you join us for the World Hypnotherapy Conference and share your expertise. Your lecture was educational and informative and was a highlight for many of our delegates. I received many positive comments from therapists expressing how they would incorporate the techniques you shared into their own practices.”

- Antoine Matarasso, former National President, Australian Hypnotherapists Association (AHA)

“Tracie is unique in her ability to combine charisma and good teaching skills. Not only did she give us a very well rounded and clear insight into how she deals with eating disorder problems, but many practical tools as well. I thoroughly enjoyed her presentation for the Australian Society of Clinical Hypnotherapists and hope to get her back for another presentation in the future.”

- Lyndall Briggs, President, Australian Society of Clinical Hypnotherapists (ASCH)

“You were wonderful and made quite an impression on my students. The atmosphere was incredibly relaxed and peaceful. Participants listened to you with great intensity and respect. I rarely get the opportunity of meeting extraordinary people like you.”

- Jean-Remi Lapaire, Professor of Linguistics, University of Toulouse, France

“The audience were effusive in their thanks, describing Tracie’s presentation as ‘really helpful’. Out of the seminars we have been running since 1976, this was one of the best.”

- Roger French, Director, Natural Health Society of Australia

“Tracie O’Keefe is a wise and empathic speaker who genuinely cares about the audience. This can be seen in the way she brings her wealth of practical professional skills to every event as a presenter.

I have enjoyed Tracie’s presentations at a diverse range of events, and highly recommend her as a speaker.”

“What an informative, interesting day of training with Tracie. It has widened my perspective on many therapies. I particularly liked the use of Milton Erickson’s techniques.

- Maureen Gilligan, clinical hypnotherapist, New Zealand
