Frequently Asked Questions
What does hypnosis feel like?
For many, hypnosis doesn’t feel very different than being in a relaxed state. Some describe it as daydreaming, feeling “light” or “floating” and some people experienced feeling “heavy”. Each person may have a different experience.
Will I fall asleep or become zoned out?
You can feel incredibly relaxed although hypnosis is a state of hyper focused awareness. You will be aware of sounds and what is going on around you. You can also become aware of many areas of your own empowerment you didn’t even know you had!
Is Hypnosis is safe? Will I lose my control?
Yes it is very safe. You have free will, always have control and will not do anything you don’t want to do.
Is stage hypnosis like hypnotherapy?
They are very different. Stage hypnosis has an element of entertainment, it is there for show and laughs rather than helping people overcome issues or ailments.
Is it possible to get stuck in a trance?
No. You cannot get stuck in trance. Since you are so aware of what’s going on, you also can easily come out of the trance if you chose too, or if nothing is happening you naturally emerge from your hypnotic state. You naturally go in and out of hypnosis throughout your day. You do not get stuck during those times either. Everything happens by choice.
How many sessions do I need?
It can vary. Although some may experience notable changes in one session, others may take up to 6. This is accomplished when the client allows for it to work, lets the process take them where it needs to.
In 1958 the American Medical Association approved Hypnotherapy for an effective therapy for behaviour change.
The average person experiences hypnosis at least twice a day. An example is driving somewhere, reaching your destination and not remembering the drive there.
Hypnosis can be used as an anaesthetic. EEG studies have shown hypnosis removes the emotional experience of the pain, allowing only the experience to the sensory sensation. Touch is felt but pain isn’t recognized by the brain.
You can hypnotize yourself using self hypnosis and work on a variety of issues and explore endless opportunities for positive self change and growth.
Hypnotherapy isn’t something done to you, it is partly from the therapist guiding the conscious mind to relax, the client is control of ALLOWING themselves to relax, which then leads to profound insights and mindset shifts that make a lasting impact on their life.
