REVEALED: Counsellor hypnotised, sexually abused boys at Brisbane Grammar School

TWO prestigious private schools in south-east Queensland are at the centre of sickening allegations of child sex abuse.

The Brisbane Grammar School and St Paul’s School, are the focus of public hearings of the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse in Brisbane.

It’s alleged that from the 1970’s to 1990’s, former school counsellor Kevin Lynch hypnotised then sexually abused boys during counselling sessions that would last up to an hour.


In 2014, both school’s issued an apology to students who had been abused by Lynch, who killed himself after being charged with child abuse in 1997.
