How many sessions will I need?
This can vary between clients and is dependent on each person's issue and individual response to hypnosis. Most treatments take between 3 – 5 sessions for positive and lasting changes to be made. I will do my very best to help you to resolve your problem as quickly as possible.
What does hypnosis feel like?
There is no such thing as a hypnosis feeling and many people do not feel like they have been hypnotised afterwards. Going into hypnosis is simply a very pleasant and relaxing experience of the mind and body.
Can I get stuck in hypnosis?
No you absolutely cannot. It is not possible to get stuck in hypnosis. You will remain in control at all times, regardless of how relaxed you feel. You can bring yourself out of hypnosis at any time if you wish and would simply drift back to full consciousness by yourself if something were to happen to your hypnotherapist while you were in hypnosis.
Does hypnosis only work on certain people?
Anyone can be hypnotised. The depth of the hypnotic state is variable from person to person and different techniques may be required for different people but if you are willing and have a strong sense of need, together with trust and confidence in your hypnotherapist - you can be hypnotised!
GP consent may be required for certain illnesses and you should not be hypnotised whilst under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
Can I be made to do anything I don’t want to?
Definitely not! Whilst in hypnosis you are aware of what is going on around you and what is being said, regardless of how deeply you go into hypnosis. You remain in control at all times and your subconscious will not let you do anything which you don’t want to do, or which is against your beliefs. Hypnosis is not something which I do to you. It is a process that we do together. My role is to simply guide and help you to make the changes that you wish to achieve.
