Norman Roth

(Clinical hypnotherapist & guided meditation)

Norm has had a lifelong fascination with hypnosis. He started studying hypnosis from books as a child, reading everything his library had, and performed hypnosis successfully on friends. He could not be formally trained when younger as the Victoria Government had a moratorium on hypnosis with only psychiatrists, psychologists and priests permitted such training under government legislation. This moratorium was lifted many years later and Norman enrolled in the Australian Academy of Hypnotic Science where he acquired a Diploma in Hypnotherapy and a Postgraduate Diploma in Psychotherapy. Through these courses he learned hypnosis was more than a stage or party trick and actually something that can be used to overcome a resistant conscious mind to access the subconscious to elicit psychological, emotional and physical healing. In fact, Norm was so adept he was made class dux and the only student invited to stay on at the Australian Academy of Hypnotic Science to work as a clinical hypnotherapist. Norm reported that in this role he realised he had found his calling. After a stint at the Australian Academy of Hypnotic Science Norm went on to set up The Hypnotherapy Clinic in Brighton and later worked for three other clinics in some of Melbourne’s more prestigious suburbs.

Norm has a strong social conscience and has agreed to dedicate time in his retirement to help those battling mental health and addiction issues.
