Stress and anxiety are normal human reactions. Both are natural parts of our lives.
So, we deal with them the way we know how: listening to classical music, getting a massage, taking a long and hot bath in the tub, etc. There are times, though, when those aren’t enough.
If you think what would help you is hypnotherapy, you can check out the list of the best hypnotherapy clinics in Dublin we’ve picked below. We’ve also added some useful information on hypnotherapy that might be of help to you, including the cost of your average session.

The Best Hypnotherapy Clinics in Dublin
We’ve picked reputable and qualified hypnotherapy clinics in Dublin for you. Check them out below:
1. Hypnosis and Therapy Centre
|SERVICES||smoking, insomnia, anxiety, depression, tourettes, panic attacks, self-confidence, phobias, alcohol addiction, weight loss, chronic pain, stress, public speaking|
|ADDRESS||20 Harcourt St, Saint Kevin’s, Dublin, D02 H364, Ireland|
|CONTACT DETAILS||+353 1 450 8923|
|OPERATING HOURS||Mon – Sat, 10:00am – 8:00pm|
Sat, 10:00am – 6:00pm
Training is important in any field. In hypnotherapy, only a trained, licensed or certified hypnotherapist can work on mental health issues like eating disorders, stage fright, phobias etc.
We picked Hypnosis and Therapy Centre for this list precisely because their therapists hold several diplomas and certificates in this field: ones for Neuro-linguistic Programming, Life Coaching, Hypnotherapy, Mind Coaching, Conversational Hypnosis and Advanced Strategic Hypnotherapy.
To date, they’ve helped people with different issues like rage, smoking cessation, lack of self confidence, alcohol addiction, etc.
Now, how effective are they in dealing with these issues? They claim rapid results that can usually be seen from the client’s first session.
Based on our research and the reviews of people who previously took on their services, that claim seems to hold up and they seem to have a good success rate.
They use a unique, multi-therapy approach applying a combination of psychotherapy, hypnosis, NLP and similar practices. This, they said, encourages change.
If you have doubts—and we don’t blame you if you do—you can avail of their 22-minute complimentary breakthrough session. It’s a free phone consultation where you will have an initial discussion with a therapist about the issue you want to resolve.
Once you decide to go for it, programmes are typically 3 to 5 sessions. The initial session is about 60 minutes and follow-up sessions can last up to 45 minutes.
The days of the sessions are also provided close together to maintain momentum and achieve optimal results. Their programmes are focused on solutions and not intended to be carried out over a long period.
One of the things we also appreciate about them is the ongoing support they provide. Sliding back to old habits is a real issue in situations like this and we think it’s important to have somebody check on your progress once in a while.
Also, please note that a deposit is required to secure a time slot. The remaining payment is paid at the end of the first session.
Take note that you have to make sure you want this, though.This is because payments to them are non-refundable except in certain circumstances.

Dublin Hypnosis Clinic is best known for providing training to employees of businesses and corporations through clinical hypnotherapy.
Their team includes top psychology lecturers and hypnosis trainers like Seamus Foley, Cormac Colleran and Joe Plowman. They influence the mind through hypnosis to improve performance and teach influence skills in individuals and teams.
But that’s not to say they don’t help individuals with issues not related to work. Some of their other services include hypnotherapy treatments for weight loss, smoking cessation, anxiety, irritable bowel syndrome, stress reduction among others.
Are they good? Going from what clients said, it seems so.
They’re also pretty well-established, having been in the business for 7 years and having a collective experience of nearly 40 years.
Further proof of their quality is that they were named the Hypnosis Clinic of the Year winner by the Prestige Awards and Corporate Livewire Magazine twice in a row (2020, 2021).
Some of the companies they have worked with are Google, Facebook, Bank of Ireland, LinkedIn, Whirlpool, Permanent TSB, Pfizer among others. So, given all these, we’d say there’s a basis for their strong reputation in the field.
In terms of convenience, they have clinics in Blackrock and Clontarf, but also do online sessions. They didn’t mention, however, if they require a deposit to secure a session.

Because every client is unique and has different needs, Hypnosis-Dublin tailors each session for each client.
They pride themselves on giving powerful sessions to reprogram the mind because “stubborn problems need stubborn efforts.”
That might be true, but let’s get to what really matters: their success rate. Of course, it’s necessary to note here that results vary from person to person.
Drawing our assessment from client testimonials and the fact that they have been around for more than a decade, it looks like the success rate is high enough, though. Most of their customers were very complimentary too.
Their hypnotherapist/psychotherapist is also Garda-vetted and a registered member of Clinical Hypnotherapy Professionals Association (CHPA) in Ireland, which is the only recognised registration body in Ireland for the European Association of Hypno-psychotherapy (EAHP).
How much do sessions cost? It’s €90 for the average one-off session.
There’s still some variation in pricing based on what you’re getting, though. For instance, smoking cessation is €190 for 2 sessions.
They treat all sorts of issues, such as panic attacks, fears, phobias, depression, insomnia among others. However, the rates for these have not been disclosed to us.
If you’re not sure whether to give it a go or not, you can take advantage of their phone consultation, which is free.
You can also give them a call or fill up their contact form. However, they sometimes have problems with Yahoo mails bouncing back, so you might want to send them a text message instead.

Sean Flanagan has 17 years of experience in hypnotherapy. He treats people with social anxiety, fear of flying, exam stress, depression, panic attacks and bad habits like nail biting, smoking and alcohol abuse.
He has even developed a formula that blends hypnotherapy and transformational coaching in order to resolve emotional and psychological issues.
His clients say that the way he uses the power of a client’s mind to resolve issues has helped them without any negative side effects.
In fact, several even claimed that his hypnosis treatments resulted in the improvement of other issues like tension headaches, irritable bowel syndrome and migraines.
It doesn’t take him long to get to the heart of the issue too. Typically, treatments run a short course of about 3 to 4 sessions.
However, this varies from person to person.
Unfortunately, there’s no guarantee here that you will be refunded if treatments don’t work out for you. Or if there will be a complimentary extension of the sessions.
Here’s what clients are saying about Sean Flanagan:
“I am so grateful for the changes that hypnosis has led to. I am honestly happier in myself than ever before, so, what I got was a bargain and I would recommend you to anyone. Thanks so much Sean and Happy New Year to you.” – Claire Byrne, Sean Flanagan reviews
“Sean is an incredible hypnotherapist. He helped me on multiple levels, including finding possible causes for my chronic headaches. He also helped me achieve peace during some turbulent moments, and I am very grateful for this. I highly recommend Sean to anyone.” – Anda Maria Bratfalean, Google reviews
5. Stephen Travers
|SERVICES||anxiety, panic attacks, stress control, anger management, fears, phobias, depression, confidence building, public speaking, stop smoking|
|ADDRESS||The Healing House, 24 O’Connell Ave, Berkeley Rd, Phibsborough, Dublin 7, Ireland|

|OPERATING HOURS||Mon – Fri, 9:00am – 8:00pm|
Sat, 9:00am – 5:00pm
Interestingly, Stephen Travers doesn’t just use hypnotherapy in his sessions. He uses “havening” too.
To clarify, the havening technique is an alternative therapy that uses eye movements, touch and distraction to reduce anxiety and stress. It can be used to supplement hypnotherapy.
But aside from that, Travers also utilises other advanced psychological methods like Thought Field Therapy (TFT) and Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP). This gives you an idea of how multilayered his approach can be.
A graduate of the Institute of Clinical Hypnotherapy & Psychotherapy and Ireland’s first Certified Havening Techniques Practitioner, Stephen has helped literally thousands of people get over their anxiety, phobias, traumas, smoking addiction and various psychological and emotional issues using these methods.
He has been practising for over a decade now and is an accredited member of the Institute of Clinical Hypnotherapy & Psychotherapy Ireland. He is also the director of U.K & International Havening.
Now, what does all this mean? With his credentials, plus the research we’ve conducted and the reviews we’ve read, it seems he is as skilled as his reputation indicates.
It also says something about his expertise that he also conducts training for other health professionals.
Furthermore, Stephen provides coaching and consulting services to enhance professional sports and business performance as well.
Unfortunately, he’s a bit hard to book at times thanks to his popularity. It’s not helped by the fact that he’s closed on Sundays, which further limits the available appointment times.
Here are some reviews for Stephen Travers:
“Stephens is great to work with and has really helped me through some deep rooted issues/memories. I feel generally relieved from the fear and anger I was carrying with me without fully realising it, and like I can finally begin to be the more confident, relaxed and content person I want to be.
If you’re on the fence about this treatment I would say try it because it’s a lot more powerful than you might expect it to be, as well as a skill you take with you.” – Irene Sweeney, Google reviews
“I have been with Stephen twice now , once back in 2014 , in one session I stopped smoking and have never smoked since. Recently I approached Stephen again in relation to anxiety and stress. In 4 sessions I have built up coping skills and resilience to both problems and would have no problem recommending Stephen and his techniques.” – Cathal MacCearain, Google reviews

What are the different types of hypnotherapy?
As we mentioned earlier, different psychological and emotional issues require different types of hypnotherapy. If you want to learn more, we’ve outlined some of the most commonly used hypnotherapy types below:
It is believed that we are more open to suggestions when we are in a hypnotic state. Once the client is in that state, the hypnotherapist will offer suggestions to help change thought patterns and break bad habits like nail biting, weight loss, smoking cessation and similar issues.
This type of therapy aims to identify the root cause or ‘trigger event’ that led to the current issue the patient is experiencing. Once the root cause has been identified, it will be easier for the therapist to relieve the symptoms and reduce negative associations.
This is a newer form of hypnotherapy that is used to influence the cognitive, behavioural and emotional well-being of a person in a positive way. It is often used in the treatment of anxieties and phobias.
This type of hypnotherapy uses indirect suggestions (also called seeding ideas) through stories and metaphors to activate intrapsychic resources that were previously dormant.
