Sense of Self Therapies

Profile 6Sense of Self is a Melbourne based Hypnotherapy practice established in 2011 by Jennifer Seitanidis. Jennifer is a qualified Clinical Hypnotherapist and a member of the Australian Association of Clinical Hypnotherapy & Psychotherapy Association (AACHP) and the Australian Hypnotherapists Association.

Sense of Self is dedicated to helping, enabling and empowering individuals to transform their lives and overcome challenges; whether they be phobias, anxieties, addictions, smoking or weight loss. We believe in helping individuals so they can help themselves. We achieve this through hypnotherapy, NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) and meditation. We have consulting rooms in 3 convenient locations – one is in Flemington, one in Elsternwick and the third is in Caulfield South.

Sense Of Self also aims to raise awareness and appreciation of ‘self’ and to bring about self-enhancement and improve mental, emotional and physical well being through a subconscious and reflective journey of self-discovery.

We genuinely believe that true happiness, lasting peace and genuine strength are embedded in a harmonious equilibrium between our ‘self’, our perceptions and our deeds (actions and interactions). True empowerment is the result of this harmony and by unleashing this immense source of strength, our souls can be liberated and allowed to soar the serene skies of tranquillity and reach the heights of self-realisation.

Our Areas of Expertise


Virtual Gastric Band Weight Loss Hypnotherapy

We help you gain the motivation and handle the emotional eating triggers to create a permanent healthy living pattern. Most people lose between 1-2 kilos per week. Your Program includes 4 weekly sessions of hypnotherapy (it takes 28 days to form new habits), 2 CDs, a Workbook and full support. And because it\’s not a Diet, you won’t feel deprived, miserable or hungry.

The Virtual Gastric Band is a non-surgical technique which uses the power of hypnosis to retrain you to be satisfied with smaller amounts of food. It changes how you think about food and gives very safe, very predictable results. The clinical hypnotherapy convinces the brain that the stomach is full after a certain level of intake, and that there is no need for more food.

Relaxation & Stress Relief

Stress develops over time as the result of our continued experience. In life situations where conditions fail to meet our expectations we continue to manage situations in the same way, using the same strategy over and over whether or not the strategy is effective at solving our problems.
Hypnosis can help you break these thinking patterns and provide suggestions that encourage new and effective strategies to better manage your life situations and problems. It can assist you to take control over your life and re-program your subconscious mind so that you get more of what you want and less of what you don’t want.

Confidence & Self Esteem

Hypnosis is an invaluable tool when you want to discover how to build self confidence. This is because going into hypnosis allows you to step out of your everyday way of thinking and feeling about yourself and your life. When you are deeply relaxed, and listening to empowering suggestions crafted by skilled and experienced psychologists, you naturally become more flexible and creative. And so you naturally feel better about yourself and more ready to take on the challenges of life.

You may be confident in some areas of life, but less so in others. Hypnosis will not only teach you how to build self confidence, but will help you keep that confidence stable and strong, whatever circumstances you face.

Other Issues We Treat

Quit Smoking

Smoking is both a physical and psychological habit. While the physical habit can be overcome in a few short days, the psychological, or subconscious pattern of habit, can last for much, much longer. This is why hypnosis is such an effective way to stop your smoking habit.

Did you know that hypnosis is one of the most effective means for stopping smoking?
By working with the part of your inner mind that gives you the desire for cigarettes, hypnosis helps eliminate the internal battle that many people experience when giving up the habit. Hypnosis addresses these subconscious patterns and is able to help relieve cravings and withdrawal.

Anxiety problems

Anxiety can be best defined as what we imagine will happen in the future concerning an event or situation. It is essentially a learned anticipatory response. For people to exert themselves fully and to pursue various goals, whether sporting, academic or creative, it is necessary for them to experience some degree of anticipation.

However, each of us has an optimal level of anticipation for any given situation, and when it rises to high, it inhibits rather than assists our performance or achievement of our goal. So one of the major reasons for using hypnosis is to improve your self esteem and confidence. If you truly believe in your own abilities, you will find it much easier to persuade other people of those abilities. Feeling good about yourself has a valuable affect in many areas of life, from improving your relationships with colleagues or those of a personal nature to achieving goals in every area of life.

Sleep Problems & Insomnia

People with sleep problems are often thinkers, so many of the problems people have in getting to sleep stem from worry, tension, anxiety, fears, and emotional turmoil. It seems that the most common element to be found that causes these factors to disrupt sleep is non-productive thinking. Many people have the tendency to try to solve their problems by thinking about them especially at bedtime. Hypnosis can help you break these thinking patterns and provide suggestions that encourage control of your sleep time just as you are able to control your waking time. It can assist you to take control of your sleeping self and help you to re-program how you would like the night to pass.

The subconscious has a record of both your high quality sleep and those times when you experience disturbed or poor sleep. Hypnosis can help you to access and recall those memories of healthy restful sleep and give suggestions to assist you to create new sleeping patterns.

Hypertension – High Blood Pressure

Hypertension (high blood pressure) means that your blood is pumping at a higher pressure than normal through your arteries. This can contribute to a number of diseases including heart attack, kidney failure or stroke. Usually there are no symptoms of hypertension. Hereditary factors, obesity, a diet high in salt, smoking and a lack of physical activity can all contribute to hypertension.

Your heart pumps blood around your body through your blood vessels. Blood pressure is the amount of force applied on the artery walls by the pumping blood. High blood pressure (hypertension) means that your blood is pumping with more force than normal through your arteries.

Hypnosis can help to lower your blood pressure by promoting feelings of well-being and a sense of control, as well as help you adjust your lifestyle (habits, diet and exercise).

Past Life Regression

Past Life Regression is a technique that uses hypnosis to access memories of past lives or incarnations. Consequently, it can help you to understand yourself in a much more profound way. Therefore it is often the case that the subconscious will take you back to a Past Life which holds some significance to your current situation in this lifetime. Exploring that Past Life will bring clarity and understanding in this one.
