Hypnotherapy FAQ

Q.  Can anyone be hypnotised?

A.   The majority of people can be hypnotised, providing they are able to follow simple verbal instructions. Hypnotherapy will work best when you are ready and willing to make the specific change in your behaviour (e.g. give up smoking), as the subconscious suggestions will support and strengthen your own will power.

Q.   Can I be made to say or do anything against my will whilst I am hypnotised?

A.   Not at all.  Clinical hypnosis is not the same as stage hypnosis; you are free to accept or reject any suggestions made.

Q.   Will I be aware of what is happening or being said during the session?

A.   Yes.  You will feel deeply relaxed but will never lose contact with my voice.

Q.   What happens if I don’t come out of trance or something happens to you before I am brought out?

A.   You would simply come out of the trance naturally, as you will still be fully conscious but relaxed.  No-one has every remained in trance indefinitely.

Q.   Will I be able to drive after the session?

A.   Yes.  You will most likely be feeling very relaxed, however your actions and reactions will be functioning even more efficiently than usual.

Q.   When I am in hypnosis am I unconscious?

A.   No, you are in a state half-way between being asleep and awake. Most people liken it to being half asleep, and feeling the most relaxed they’ve ever felt.

Q. Does hypnotherapy work online as effectively as in person?

A. Absolutely. As long as you can hear my voice, you can reach a state of hypnosis and receive the benefits of the hypnotherapy. In fact, most clients say they feel more relaxed in the comfort of their own home than in a hypnotherapist’s office, and this helps speed up their relaxation into hypnosis.
