What is hypnosis?
Hypnosis is a state of altered awareness during which our subconscious mind is
more open and receptive to suggestions that are given.
It is a scientifically acknowledged psychological and therapeutic discipline.
It is a method by which any person may be guided into an altered state of
conscious awareness ('hypnotic trance') in which psychological and physical
changes, beyond normal conscious capability, may be achieved.
Anyone can be hypnotised, if you can relax and follow simple instructions you can
enjoy hypnotic trance.
Can I be hypnotized against my will?
No, nobody can be hypnotized against their will and if done also it won't work.
Hypnosis is cooperation between two people and he person being hypnotized is
still in control of his or her own body and mind
What is hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy is basically a therapy done in combination with hypnotic trance.
It is often classed as a form of complementary medicine
Is hypnosis safe?
Absolutely. There are no known records of anyone having been physically or
mentally harmed as a direct result of hypnosis itself.
What does it feel like?
The experience is different for different people. For most people hypnosis is a pleasant state of deep state of relaxation. Deep hypnosis is similar in many ways
to the kind of trance found in yoga or meditation. Some people say that their body
feels like a lead weight, others say they feel as though they're floating away. Most
people will agree that it's a lovely feeling because they are more relaxed that they
have ever been before.
When I am 'under hypnosis' will I be asleep?
You will be aware of everything that is happening and being said the whole time,
however you will be deeply relaxed. Your subconscious mind is active throughout and it is this that your therapist is working with.
Will I remember everything afterwards?
A lot of people believe that when they are hypnotized they will not be aware of
anything that is happening around them. Hypnosis has absolutely nothing to do
with being asleep or unconscious in any way. You hear everything, remember
everything, and know exactly what's going on the entire time. You are always
aware and in control.
Also it depends how deep in the trance of hypnosis you were, but generally most
people do remember either everything or certain parts of the experience.
Will I give away any secrets whilst I am hypnotized?
No, you won't say or do anything at all that you don't want to.
How do I know I will wake up from hypnosis?
No-one 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.
Are there any side effects from hypnosis?
The only side effects are the beneficial ones of feeling more relaxed afterwards
and feeling more positive about whatever it was you sought hypnotherapy for.
Hypnosis is a perfectly natural state.
Why do we need to access your subconscious mind?
Your subconscious mind is the storage for all your memories. In order for us to
break any pattern we need to access the root cause. Once it is located we can
eliminate the erase the negative thus allowing you to function on a higher plane.
The information in your subconscious is the solution to most problems.
