Frequently Asked Questions

1) What is Hypnosis/Hypnotherapy?

Hypnosis/Hypnotherapy allows access to the subconscious mind through heightened focus and relaxation. It has been compared to a deep state of meditation. Using the bodyís innate recuperative abilities, a person can achieve greater clarity regarding his or her wants, needs and desires, explore life events that require resolution, and develop a more positive attitude.  Often used to help people lose weight or stop smoking, hypnotherapy is also used in the treatment of phobias, stress and as an adjunct to the treatment of illness.

 

2) Is Hypnosis a normal state of consciousness?

Yes, people go in and out of this naturally occurring state of consciousness many times a day.

 

3) Will I be under the Hypnotistís power?

No, it is similar to having a backseat driver in the car. You can choose to follow the beneficial positive suggestions given, or you can disregard them. No one can make you do anything against your will or violate your core values.

 

4) Will I tell all my secrets in trance?

No, you maintain complete control over what you say or divulge. Hypnosis is not a truth serum.

 

5) Will I remember what I said in trance?

6) Will I lose consciousness?

No. You are always aware of reality while in a trance.

 

7) Is Hypnosis dangerous?

9) What if I donít awaken from Hypnosis? 

You will, everybody does!

The state we call hypnosis is a natural state we experience multiple times a day, it just isn't noticed or called by that name when we daydream or become entranced by a good book or movie or a beautiful fireplace.
