Hypnotherapy - Frequently Asked Questions

The following are some of the more commonly asked question regarding hypnotherapy. Please feel free to contact me if you have any other questions.

Can anyone be hypnotised?

Most people can be hypnotised but only if they allow themselves to be. You cannot be hypnotised against your will.

What does it feel like to be hypnotised?

Often you will feel relaxed and sleepy, a lazy 'I can't be bothered' feeling. It can also be a state of focused attention where you are fully absorbed in an experience i.e. an image of how you want to be in the future.

Is Hypnotherapy safe?

Yes, you are going in and out of trance several times a day whether absorbed in a book, computer, film, daydream or some other experience. It's a natural process that you are in control of when you want to be.

Will I be aware of what is happening?

Yes you will know what is going on in the session. You will hear the therapist's voice and as your conscious mind quiets down you enter a heightened awareness.

Can I be made to do something against my will?

You are always in control during hypnosis. You will accept only suggestions that are beneficial and acceptable to you. An important function of the unconscious mind is to protect you and remove you from danger. So in trance any suggestions that go against your moral values or safety will not be accepted by your unconscious. Nor would you reveal personal secrets against your will. In fact you are more in control of yourself during trance.

Will I remember everything?

As in daily life you pay attention to what is important to you. So in the hypnotic state you can remember anything significant to the session.
