Do you have a topic you would like to present at a workshop?

We are always looking for speakers for our workshops. If you would like to present at an AHA workshop, please contact the Workshop Coordinator in the appropriate state. You will find contact details on the AHA contacts page. One of our workshop organisers will then get in touch with you to discuss possibilities.

The Australian Hypnotherapists’ Association came about by a small group of clinical hypnotherapists who had already been practicing for a number of years and who came together because they were determined to set high ethical and professional standards for the hypnotherapy profession in Australia. They searched each other out to support each other and share their knowledge. That happened in 1949 and AHA members have been continuing this practice of sharing their knowledge ever since….
