Demonstration of hypnotic induction.
What is Hypnosis?
Hypnosis is a natural state of trance that occurs naturally throughout the day and often just before we fall asleep at night. You could compare it to the state of mind experienced when you’ve been driving in the car for a while with out noticing where you’ve been going.
What exactly is Hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy is when a therapist uses hypnosis to help a client engage with their subconscious mind for therapeutic purposes.
Can anyone enter into hypnosis?
Yes. Everyone can enter into hypnosis but only if they want to.
Can you make me do something I don’t want to? Will you make me quack like a duck?
No. I will not make you quack like a duck, unless you really want me to. Nobody can make you do anything that you don’t want. Hypnotherapy works because the therapist is helping you tap into your own inclinations and desires.
How many sessions will it take to make the changes I want?
That really depends on the behaviour you want to change and the reasons behind the behaviour. Hypnotherapy can often work in just two or three sessions but sometimes it takes longer
What does hypnotherapy feel like?
For me hypnotherapy feels like a massage to the mind and soul. I feel like I’m put into a lovely warm cocoon and most of the time I don’t want to come back, but when I do, I feel invigorated and positive – empowered. Naturally it’s different for everyone.
Will it work?
Providing you really want to make the changes and are prepared to let yourself be taken on a different path hypnotherapy will work, but there are no guarantees. To get the most of your sessions you will need to be open, honest and trust that your therapist is the right one for you.
