What is hypnosis?
is a relaxed state of awareness during which our
subconscious mind is more open and receptive to suggestions
that are given to facilitate the changes that an individual
wants to change. We drift in and out of different levels
of awareness many times a day, absorbing information
on a subconscious level as well as a conscious one.
A hypnotherapist will work with your desires to
help you to achieve your goals.
How do I know I will wake up from hypnosis?
has ever remained in hypnosis indefinitely. Even if
something were to happen to the hypnotherapist halfway
through the session, you would still 'come out' of the
trance state once rapport had been broken.
How does it feel to be hypnotized?
person's experience is different and unique to that
person. Some clients say that they feel like they have
gotten 8 hours of rest in ten minutes. Some say that
their body feels heavy, others say they feel as though
they were floating. Most people will agree that it's
a wonderful feeling because they are more relaxed than
they have ever been before.
When I am under hypnosis will I be asleep?
won't go to sleep. You will be aware of everything that
is happening and being said the entire time. You will
still hear sounds around you, but hypnosis will put
you in a deeper and more relaxed hyper-suggestible state
and open to suggestion. You will be so deeply relaxed
that you may find yourself drifting into different levels
of awareness. You will think you can get up from the
chair, but you won't want to.
Can I get stuck in hypnosis?
can't get stuck in hypnosis. You are always aware
of what is happening and you can choose to come out
of the hypnotic trance at anytime you choose, even in
the middle of the session. You will feel so wonderfully
relaxed that you simply just choose to allow yourself
to enjoy the experience to completion.
Will I remember everything afterwards?
most people do remember either everything or certain
parts of the experience. You will find that suggestions
which have been given to you in hypnosis will resurface
in your conscious, thinking mind after your hypnosis
session and these will be the thoughts that produce
changes in your behavior or way of thinking and feeling.
Remember, we are working on making changes that you
want to make.
Will I give away any secrets while I am hypnotized?
you won't say or do anything at all that you don't want
to. If you were given suggestions that you didn't morally
agree with you would naturally disregard the suggestions
because these are not the changes you wanted.
Can I be hypnotized against my will?
can resist hypnosis during a session and it won't work,
however the question remains as to why someone would
seek hypnotherapy if they didn't want it to help them.
Hypnosis requires cooperation between two people - your
therapist will show you the way and you can choose if
you want to go there or not. If you are not prepared
to accept that hypnosis could benefit you then your
best option would be to seek alternative treatment -
(however - in my own experience - people who feel they
can't be hypnotized are very often the best subjects).
Can I be treated for different problems at the same
can - if they are related issues, however because hypnosis
requires a complete focus of attention it is far better
to concentrate on one problem at a time. People wishing
to stop smoking (for example) who are afraid of doing
so in case they gain weight can be helped with the correct
approach. This is because many of us experience 'symptom
substitution' - we can substitute one addiction for
another. Your therapist should have the skills to recognize
if this is the case and deal with the issue at its core.
