What is hypnosis?

Hypnosis is simply a relaxed, focused state of concentration. When a person is hypnotized, they are not asleep. During hypnosis, the brain enters a state more receptive to suggestion. Most people do not feel like they are in hypnosis – most simply feel deeply relaxed.

The hypnotherapist does not possess any type of power or gift, but has learned how to give suggestions that the subconscious mind will accept and act on in a positive, helpful way.

What is hypnotherapy?

Hypnotherapy is using the state of hypnosis to treat a variety of medical and psychological problems.

The client is a willing volunteer, the hypnotherapist is the guide. It is estimated that 85% of people will respond at some level to clinical hypnotherapy. It may even succeed where other more conventional methods of treatment have not produced the desired result.

What will I remember?

The majority of people are aware of everything that takes place during hypnosis. Even after being brought out of hypnosis, a person will typically be able to recall everything that took place during the session.

Can I hypnotize myself?

Yes, anyone can learn self-hypnosis in just a few minutes, and it’s something I include in your sessions. Self-hypnosis is a wonderful, powerful tool that can be used by anyone throughout the day. It is also a fact that all hypnosis is actually self-hypnosis.

 Is hypnosis permanent?

Suggestions stay with some individuals indefinitely, while others need reinforcement. The effects of hypnosis are cumulative: the more the techniques are practiced and post-hypnotic suggestions are brought into play, the more permanent the results become.

Self-hypnosis training as well as reinforcement recordings for home use also provide additional help.

How many sessions will I need?

Every client is different, and the hypnosis sessions are not “one size fits all”. Clients may get results in as little as one or two sessions, but commonly more sessions are needed over a longer period, from four to five on average, especially if the unwanted behavior has been habitual for many years.

Your hypnotherapist can give you an estimate during your consultation of how many sessions may be needed.

Can I be hypnotized?

Almost everyone can be hypnotized (with an IQ above 70) if they are willing and have trust in the hypnotherapist. There are few factors other than willingness and trust that affect a client’s ability to be hypnotized. It is generally agreed that intelligent, imaginative people obtain the best results.

What does it feel like?

During a hypnotherapy session, most people remain completely aware of everything that is going on. In fact, many people experience a hyper-awareness where their sensations are perceived to be enriched and vivid.

The ability to visualize or imagine is enhanced, and deep, comfortable relaxation is common. Many describe the hypnotic state as a complete and total escape from physical tension and emotional stress, while remaining completely aware.

Most of my clients are so comfortable and relaxed by the end of the session, they don’t want to leave!
