What is hypnosis?
Hypnosis (derived from the Greek word Hypnos - meaning to sleep) is a naturally occurring state of mind, a state of deep relaxation and concentration.

A good definition of therapeutic hypnosis is; a profound state of relaxation and concentration brought about by suggestion”
As a Registered Hypnotherapist I believe that it is important to separate FACT from FICTION.

The most common misconception about hypnosis is that the client loses self control and/or consciousness during the process.
Most people's first encounter of hypnosis is through watching television and stage hypnotism. This can lead people to believe that hypnosis is some kind of mind control and that they may be controlled or manipulated or made to do something silly or outrageous. Nothing could be further from the truth!
It is important to know;

  • You will be aware of everything happening at all times when in hypnosis.
  • If you wish to terminate the trance state, you may do so simply by taking conscious control. No one can be made to do anything against his or her will when in hypnosis.
  • A professional hypnotherapist makes it clear that the client is in control.

Can everyone be hypnotised?
Every single person can be hypnotised into a light relaxing state. A state conducive to therapy.

Will I remember everything after hypnotic therapy?
Generally most people remember everything discussed during therapy. After therapy you will find that certain suggestions will resurface in your conscious mind. These thoughts will assist with changes in your behaviour.

Are there any side effects from hypnosis?
The only side effects are the beneficial ones. You feel more relaxed afterwards, feeling more positive about achieving your desired goal.

How does it feel to be hypnotised?
Many people agree that they feel more relaxed than they ever have before. This has a positive effect on their ability to think clearly.

Can I be hypnotised against my will?
No, you can resist the process and hypnosis won't work. Successful hypnosis requires cooperation between you and the therapist. All hypnosis is self-hypnosis; the hypnotherapist acts as the facilitator in that process.

I went to a Hypnotherapist before and it didn't work. Does this mean I'm not able to be hypnotised?
The most common reasons for failure to induce hypnosis are lack of rapport with your therapist, the therapist not accurately explaining hypnosis, or you were not ready for change. For change to happen, you must know and believe you have the potential for change.

How do I know I will wake up from hypnosis?
No-one has ever remained in hypnosis forever. Remember you will not be asleep when in hypnosis.

Do I have to remember things from my past in order to recover from my problem?
Not necessarily, but if the cause of your problem is due to a past event, then bringing it back into your awareness can help you view it differently, and from that feel differently about it.

Can I talk when in hypnosis?
You can talk just like at any other time. In fact when in hypnoanalysis you will be encouraged to talk.

Changing your life does not have to be frustrating or painful. A better YOU is just a phone call away.
