The Flock

David Candy DCht - Holistic Counsellor

My journey with Hypnotherapy has been a personal one. Throughout my life I suffered from ongoing issues with anxiety and panic attacks, depression, addiction and low confidence. From an early age I was diagnosed with conditions that are still considered life long illnesses.


Through working with a number of hypnotherapists over the years, I not only was able to overcome issues that had been plaguing me for over a decade but I also found the self belief and motivation to go on to become a qualified hypnotherapist myself, so that I could help support and assist others through their challenges with holistic hypnotherapy.


I made it my duty to not only attend the best hypnotherapy school on offer in Australia and receive the most leading edge training available, but my commitment was also to become the most effective hypnotherapist people could find.


While my experience and expertise in holistic hypnotherapy is important, I find my life experience is what allows me to be able to work with people from all walks of life in such a way that they feel supported, heard and understood. I know how important it is to feel comfortable, safe and not judged, when dealing with personal issues. I feel this is just as important as the hypnotherapy work itself as it directly impacts the effectiveness of the therapy which in turn impacts the results.


Holistic Hypnotherapy has been the first of it's kind to recognise this importance, which is why the results that are achieved are so profound and life changing for people.

I am continuously amazed at how effective Holistic Hypnotherapy can be and it is my mission to continue to grow the awareness of this craft, training and developing other hypnotists and hypnotherapists so that they too can work with me to bring Holistic Hypnotherapy to more and more people looking for help.

As a clinical hypnotherapist, he has helped hundreds of people move beyond anxiety, depression, phobias, and trauma while helping hundreds more to discover and confidently step into a life of positive, self-directed growth.

A few words from Malcolm - "I used to suffer from the very issues I help people through. I know, first hand, the positive results  professional hypnotherapy can achieve.

That’s why I have dedicated my career to it.

I can help you remove the blocks that are holding you back, change outdated patterns and behaviours, and live your life on your terms for a very simple reason. You already have the tools and resources within you. My mission is to help you uncover and embody them – and that’s where my professional training comes in.

I am proud to hold a Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy from the highly regarded Institute of Hypnoenergetics, Melbourne, Australia. I chose this school because of its robust approach to professionalism, ethics, and high-quality training. I am also dedicated to keeping up with the latest in hypnotherapy techniques.
