Pleasant, calming and professional!

Matt has helped significantly! Would highly recommend to anyone regarding any issue whether its feat, anxiety or anything else. Hypnotherapy is always something that you never think of but I feel great! 5 stars *****

I came to Matt in regards to managing my anxiety. The calm manner of Matt immediately made me feel at ease. Having previously being a bit skeptical about hypnotherapy, I soon realised that through Matt's professional and calming demeanour that this form of therapy is extremely beneficial. After my 8 sessions with Matt, I am more confident, outgoing and my anxiety has dramatically reduced. Cannot thank Matt enough for giving me my life back.

Thank you Matthew, you have given my life back to me. Having never experienced Hypnotherapy before, I came to Matthew anxious and a little wary. His compassion, care and understanding put me at ease straight away. After my visits, I left feeling calm, clear and totally in control, something I haven't experienced for a long time. My anxiety has decreased and I feel I can start living again.

Very Happy

3 years ago
I sought help from Matt when I felt I was at the brink of a complete mental meltdown. I didn't know what to expect at first, but was very relaxed once Matt had explained everything to me and we came up with a therapy plan. The combination of counselling and hypnotherapy works really well; and the hypnotherapy is extremely relaxing. I am really happy with the changes that I see within myself after the 11 sessions, and my outlook is now 100% positive. Matt is very easy to talk to and listens intently which makes it very reassuring. If you are serious about change, then start with Matt. You wont regret it.

Matt is so easy to talk to, very understanding and non-judgemental. I found his hypnotherapy service so relaxing and beneficial beyond explanation. He has built up my self esteem and helped me to overcome my emotions so that I can now take on day to day life more positively. If you're considering seeing Matt please do not hesitate - he is a life changer!

Matthew Duff is a miracle worker!

I reached out to Matthew as I was in a vicious cycle of Binge Eating and was on the verge of being severely depressed. I am amazed at how comfortable I was talking to Matthew about my problems. Matthew was very compassionate and came up with a therapy plan for me. I had 10 sessions with Matthew. At first I was very nervous about being hypnotized however found it to be so relaxing. The difference in me from the 1st week to my last is unbelievable! I am happy again and the binge eating has stopped. I now value myself more and have a spring in my step again. Thank you so much Matthew for helping me be me again.

Counselling services

I visited Matthew about a personal problem that I didn't know how to deal with involving one of my children. Matt gave me advice, and suggested alternate approaches to support my child that I had never thought of. He is an excellent listener and totally non judgemental and professional. I feel a lot more confident in facing the road ahead since then and would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending him.

hi matt duff is a miracle worker I have sufferd from depression,anxiety,anger & sadness and a few other things since my family was in a car accident over the last 4 years. I tried pills plus counselling and did nothing. I was out of control alcohol and drugs just about to take my own life.Then my mother in law booked me in with matt I thought what a wast of time and money. I have been 3 times so far and not only has he saved my life he has changed my life my three kids plus my wife are amazed with how I have changed and so am I if you have any of these problems I really really recommend go and see matthew Duff. ALL I CAN SAY IS GIVE IT A GO

About Duff Matthew

Matthew Duff is a Clinical Hypnotherapist and Counsellor at the Work-Life Centre in Port Macquarie & has been established for 12 years.

He has always felt very privileged that Clients let him into their personal lives to assist them to understand how their feeling, resolve their issues and change their behaviour.

He normally uses a combination of Counselling and Hypnotherapy to assist his Clients. This provides a personalised approach which promotes successful long term change with little effort or willpower required.
I use Counselling to assess the issue. This allows me to view why it continues & if there are factors driving that behavior. This then allows me to form a Therapy strategy using Hypnotherapy to resolve & change the behaviour.
Hypnosis is simply a state of deep relaxation. Hypnotherapy is putting in suggestions into the deeper part of the mind whilst under Hypnosis. Once embedded in there they will be used automatically, just like riding a bike.

The benefits of hypnotherapy include a reduced need for willpower, which helps clients reach their goals much quicker and more easily than before. It is effortless & the Client is always in control whilst under Hypnosis.

Matthew has had extensive success in treating many issues through his Port Macquarie Therapy Practice.
He specializes in : Anxiety/Stress reduction & management, Self Worth/Self Esteem enhancement.
He also regularly assists treating Client's with: Emotional issues, Weight Loss, Behavioural issues, Fears & Phobias, Depression, Anger and Sadness reduction, Relationship Counselling & Sleeping problems.

Matthews understanding and caring nature, combined with his professionalism and supportiveness has seen his business grow and succeed in the 12 years since he opened his doors. Clients are happy to recommend his services and he takes pride in the amount of clients he receives through word of mouth. He continues a commitment to providing quality and effective Counselling and Hypnotherapy services throughout Port Macquarie to assist people in resolving their problems & promoting a positive long term success to enrich their lives.

Selected health fund rebates are available.
