What does hypnosis feel like?
You are deeply relaxed and calm, aware of everything happening around you. Like daydreaming or drifting off to sleep, it is a pleasant and enjoyable state. Following the hypnotherapy session you will feel wonderfully relaxed, and you may find that your sleep will be of a much better quality.
What if I can't be hypnotised?
The only people who can't be hypnotised are those who don't want to be hypnotised, so don’t worry. Everyone else who wants hypnotherapy can be hypnotised, but the depths and response levels do differ from person to person.
I don't like the idea of having my mind being controlled.
You will always be in control at all times. Each person holds a protective mechanism of ethics, values, beliefs and identities, which protect you as an individual.
The word unconscious carries a lot of confusion. Because hypnotherapy deals with the unconscious mind this leaves a realm of ambiguity around the word unconscious. If you were unconscious you would not be able to hear the suggestion from the hypnotherapist. Hypnotherapy is a state of relaxed and focused attention, creating suggestions and commands directed to your unconscious mind for a conscious change.
Yes. In the same way as when you are lying in bed in the morning, you can hear everything going on around you, but it doesn't bother you at all. It is not a loss of control; instead it is rather like a guide to your resources.
Of course not. You will always be treated with the utmost respect, and your confidentiality will be safeguarded. Entertainment hypnosis relies on compliance, expectation from the audience and perception of what the audience expects.
Nothing in life is guaranteed, and it is not professional to offer one. However, you can be assured that as professionals all our therapists can indeed guarantee that they will bring all their skills, knowledge, experience and ongoing hypnotherapy training to bear in bringing you lasting relief in your problem.
What is Hypnosis?
Our patterns of behaviour are based on associations we have made from our thoughts to our emotions. Certain thoughts trigger certain emotions, and likewise, certain emotions can trigger certain thoughts.
Within hypnosis, you can learn to tune into your feelings and associate your thoughts with your feelings, and then learn to be more perceptive in your conscious waking state when a certain feeling or thought arises. In this manner, merely by recognising the connection of the thought and emotion, you are stopping the automatic, or trigger reaction. This is essential when dealing with behavioural changes.
The hypnotic state is a very natural state of physical relaxation and heightened mental awareness. We slide in and out of different states of consciousness all day long, and we often enter a hypnotic trance state while wide awake. One example of this kind of trance state is road hypnosis. When you are driving, you often slip into a trance state because of the constant movement of the car and the road going by.
Hypnotherapy allows you to make the changes you want to make, breaking bad habits and changing unwanted emotional responses.
