Frequently Asked Questions
Will I be aware of everything I say and do while under hypnosis?
Yes, you will always be aware of what is happening in the therapy session.
Will I be out of control, say or do unusual things?
No, you will be in control throughout the hypnosis sessions and you will only say and do what you wish to impart.
Will I be in a dream or trance-like state?
Some hypnosis treatments require you to be very relaxed both physically and mentally. Some people report feeling so relaxed that they experience a trance-like sensation. Other treatments require the client to be very engaged, collaborating with the therapist to achieve results.
Will hypnosis definitely alleviate me of my issue?
As with all treatments, complimentary and medical, there can be no guarantee of success. What can be said is hypnosis has a massive supporting evidence base that has been conducted over hundreds of years. A positive and expectant mindset of the client and a willingness to undertake "homework" will improve the outcome of the therapy sessions.
Will I be under hypnosis for the whole session?
For the first session (assessment) there may be very little hypnosis, but don't let this dissuade you. The assessment session on its own is very therapeutic. It ascertains a good starting platform for successful therapy, assisting motivation into a positive and hypnotic mindset. Future sessions contain more hypnosis interleaved with talking therapy.
How many sessions will I need?
That depends on the individual and presenting issue. Please see the pricing page for package costs.
