Hypnotherapy FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions
What is Hypnosis?
What is Hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy is the process of using hypnosis to interact with the subconscious mind. It is a complementary therapy that utilises the power of positive suggestion to bring about subconscious change to our thoughts, feelings and behaviour.
Can anyone be hypnotised?
Yes, anyone who can pay attention and follow instructions can be hypnotised but only, IF THEY WANT TO BE.
All hypnosis is self hypnosis. Some people find it easier to relax than others. By the same token, some people are able to go into hypnosis more quickly and more deeply than others.
What does it feel like?
The feeling when in hypnosis is of being physically and mentally relaxed. It’s different for everyone but most people say it feels like daydreaming. When in hypnosis, people experience a state of complete mental, physical and emotional relaxation. In itself, this is a very healing state.
Will I still be in control of myself?
When you are in a hypnotic state you are more aware and more focused on yourself then you are in a normal state.
Be assured that you are still fully in control of yourself when you are hypnotised. You are still conscious, but your conscious mind is extremely relaxed. No one can take control of you or make you do anything unless you allow it.
Will I talk about secretive information under hypnosis?
No. You cannot be forced to say or do anything under hypnosis that you don’t want to. Remember that you are completely in control.
Will I get stuck in hypnosis?
No, that is not possible. Even if something was to happen to the Hypnotherapist or they walked out of the room, you would simple open your eyes (most likely from boredom) or you would drift off to sleep and wake up when your body has had enough rest.
