About me, Joanna Malinowska - your hypnotherapist and self hypnosis teacher

I am a qualified and experienced clinical hypnotherapist. I am accredited and registered as a clinical member by the Australian Hypnotherapists Association and the Australian Society of Clinical Hypnotherapists. I am also a clinical supervisor for both organizations.

Why to choose me as your hypnotherapist and self hypnosis teacher?


  • Because you want to overcome your issues and achieve your goals. It makes sense to choose an experienced and skilful professional who helped and taught thousands of others.  


  • I am not only an experienced professional hypnotherapist, but also a dedicated teacher who knows how to encourage you, how to support you, how to coach and explain. I've been teaching from my early teens (I was earning my living as a math tutor then)

  • I teach real active self-hypnosis. You will be able to use it not only to relax and to have a good sleep during the flight, but also to deal with the future issues and to achieve your other goals.

  • I am using hypnosis to teach. From the simple, basic self-hypnosis routine to most advanced self-hypnosis techniques, I explain them first but then they are practically implemented when you are in hypnosis. The hypnotic state makes the teaching very effective.

  • I practise the Client Centred Therapy. My role as a therapist and teacher is to help you to find and utilize your full potential.  I see it and I trust you from the very first time we meet. Every person is unique. My clients and students have always an active role and the therapy and teaching is tailored exactly to their needs. This is empowering.


I enjoy my work as a therapist and as a teacher. It gives me an enormous amount of satisfaction to be able to help people find their potential and overcome their issues and problems, to dispose of their unhealthy beliefs and to implement and experience the new ways. And there is even greater satisfaction in teaching – when clients learn how to access and utilise their own resources, how to empower themselves and to be able to handle future situations. It is such a joy to assist and teach principles for self-awareness, clarity, self-growth and effective techniques to apply these principles in everyday life.


When I work with students, I am sharing not only my professional knowledge and experience, but also years of rich personal experience and even the generations of teaching experience from my parents and grandparents. In my life, before committing myself to hypnotherapy, I had a handful of professions. I started earning my living as a math tutor when I was 14 years old, I have a Master’s Degree in Science, I worked as a high school teacher, and I had a successful career in IT. I am a mother and together with my husband have raised three wonderful young people. I was born in the totalitarian regime and I've spent my formative years selecting the truth from lies; I had my little part in the underground peaceful freedom movement; and much, much more – just life, full of events, sometimes traumatic.


I had many teachers in my life and I am so grateful to all of them. They taught me so much, all the skills and techniques and much, much more, because they shared their lives with me, they shared their deepest thoughts and feelings from their hearts and their souls. And as everybody we meet is a teacher, I am especially grateful to my clients and my students who opened their hearts and taught me who I am. I can only bow to you and say thank you, thank you all, I am proud to be one of you and I am totally committed to pass on everything I've learnt from you.
