What is hypnosis?
Hypnosis is a heightened state of suggestibility. Although the conscious mind is present, the client is in a relaxed state therefore allowing positive suggestion to reach the unconscious mind.
Is hypnosis mind control?
Absolutely not. Hypnotherapy is nothing like stage hypnotism. Hypnotherapy is a two way process between therapist and client. A hypnotherapist cannot make you do anything, they help you work through your presenting issues and give you the tools to do the work yourself so the question I often get asked 'will you make me cluck like a chicken?' No, not unless you want to.....
Can everyone be hypnotized?
A hypnotherapist would not hypnotize anyone with epilepsy, serious mental illness or children under the age of 5. Most people can achieve light trance and around 75% of the population can achieve medium trance. Deep trance (or somnambulism ) can be achieved by around 10% of the population, but this is rarely used in hypnotherapy.
Can I get stuck in hypnosis?
No. With online work in case we loose internet connection I take the added precaution of asking you to have a phone next to you, and if possible, someone else in the house with you. I will also give suggestion that if you do not hear my voice for 2 minutes you will awaken naturally. If in the unlikely event I were to drop dead during a session! You would simply fall into a light sleep and awaken naturally.
Please do contact me personally if you have any questions that I have not covered.
