What Does Hypnosis Feel Like?

Most hypnosis subjects describe it as extremely pleasant and deeply relaxing, giving them a feeling of well being. The most common feelings reported include: deep relaxation, a tingly feeling, a feeling of heaviness or sensation of floating, a desire to swallow more, slight body twitches, eye fluttering, and a change in breathing pattern. Generally speaking, clients hear and remember most of what is said during the session. They are very aware of their own body and breathing, as well as the temperature of and sound in the room. Most people are actually more (not less) aware of what is going on when they are hypnotised. A very small number of people go so deeply into hypnosis that they have no memory of the session at all, but most hear and remember what went on.

 

Is a Deep State of Hypnosis Necessary for the Hypnosis to Work?

Absolutely not! In most cases, a light state is just as effective as a deep state. In changing attitudes and behaviour, a light state of hypnosis can actually work better because the client is more certain to remember the suggestion given.

Does Hypnosis Really Work?

Yes, and it is one of the most pleasant and natural therapies available! It puts you in charge of your own mind and your outcomes!

 

Common fallacies of hypnosis?

Contrary to popular belief, you are not asleep or unconcious when hypnotised. Clients do not lose control during the sessions and can freely choose to disregard any suggestions the hypnotherapist makes. Hypnosis makes a person more inclined to do the things they want to do, but not things that go against their own belief systems.

 

Can anyone become hypnotised?

Yes, anyone who wants to be hypnotised, can be. It is a very natural reaction.

 

What happens if I stay hypnotised?

Don’t worry, you won’t! You will come out of hypnosis as instructed. Hypnosis (even self-hypnosis) automatically ends in line with your needs and desires.

How many sessions will I need?

How many sessions are needed depends upon your motivation and the type of therapy you are seeking. In many cases only one or two sessions are necessary, some people require a little more time and suppport with a particular problem.

 

Can Hypnotherapy help me Stop Smoking?

Yes! Smoking Cessation sessions are very effective.

 

Do I need to inform my GP?

For many medical issues it is essential to work with your doctor and obtain their consent before treating medical conditions with hypnosis. Ask your hypnotherapist to write to your GP to ask for a doctor’s consent form prior to starting therapy (Please provide your name and address, Date of Birth and your GPs name and surgery address). It is important that you continue to take all medications you have been prescribed and discuss them with your GP as necessary. The hypnotherapist is not a doctor and does not practice medicine or psychiatry.
