Many problems are difficult to overcome alone. Hypnotherapy helps you combat your challenges such as smoking, anxiety, over-eating, stress, chronic pain, or insomnia. Often, people choose hypnotherapy to sharpen their abilities in sports, business, or personal relationships.
Can anyone be hypnotized?
Yes, virtually everyone can be hypnotized as long as he or she is willing. A hypnotherapist can not force you to go into hypnosis. There are six stages of hypnosis, with the benefits obtainable even in the lightest stage.
Will I know what is happening?
Yes, you may even be more aware. Although your eyes are closed, your other senses may increase their sensitivity.
Is it dangerous?
No, you are perfectly safe as hypnosis is a naturally occurring process in your everyday activities. Daydreaming is hypnosis. We experience hypnosis throughout the day whether we are aware of it or not.
Will I lose control?
No. You remain in control at all times. The hypnotherapist does not have control over you and if you decide to get up and walk out, then you will.
Will I reveal any secrets?
During hypnosis, your normal morals are still in force. Your mind is very protective of you and will not allow you to say anything or behave any differently than your principles would normally allow.
How many sessions will I need?
Many people attain their desired results after one session. Others enjoy the reinforcement that two or more sessions provide. We are all unique and react differently - discuss with your hypnotherapist what's right for you.
What is the difference between hypnosis and hypnotherapy?
Hypnosis is the state that a person experiences. Hypnotherapy is using that state for beneficial purposes.
So how can being in hypnosis help resolve a problem?
During hypnosis you relax. When your body and your mind are stress and tension-free, your mind operates at heightened efficiency and effectiveness. Improved ways of thinking can be programmed into your subconscious.
When the mind and body are relaxed we also have better access to our memories. Since we are a product of our past experiences, sometimes it is beneficial to return to a memory in order to resolve what happened.
