Welcome to Academy of Hypnotic Science

We're the Academy of Hypnotic Science, Victoria's first, biggest and best government-accredited dedicated deliverer of Clinical Hypnotherapy training.

This is a hugely exciting time in the history of hypnosis in Australia. Over the past few years its reputation has grown enormously, to the point where it's highly likely someone you know has had Hypnotherapy - perhaps to stop smoking, or to lose weight, or to get rid of a phobia or fear. Perhaps, like us, you've even experienced its power for yourself, and that's why you've come here.


The Academy of Hypnotic Science, founded in 1980, has always played a leading role in the development of our profession in this country. Its founders, Jim and Joane Goulding, were responsible for challenging the outmoded laws that existed around hypnosis at that time. Later, they were the first to seek government accreditation for their teaching. Today, while Jim sadly is no longer with us, Joane is still lecturing at the Academy, one of a dozen specialist, accredited trainers. We are proud of our long heritage, and look forward to the next 30 years as hypnosis continues to grow in popularity as a fast, effective technique for treating a range of presenting issues.


​​​We have played our part in other ways, too. Over the years more government-accredited Hypnotherapists have graduated from the Academy than through anywhere else in Australia. Today, we are the biggest Hypnotherapy training school in the country. And we continue to break new ground, too, with the launch this year of Australia's first ever government-accredited qualification in Hypnotherapy for Fertility and Childbirth.


Have a look around - and give us a call on (03) 9532 8140. We look forward to talking to you soon!
