WHAT IS HYPNOSIS
Hypnosis is a state of altered awareness during which our subconscious mind is more open and receptive to suggestions that are given. Your hypnotherapist will work with your imagination to help you achieve your goals.
How does it feel to be hypnotised?
Every person is unique and different - some people say their body feels like a lead weight, others say they feel as though they are floating away. Most people will agree it’s a lovely feeling because they are more relaxed than they have ever been before.
Will I be asleep?
You will be aware of everything that is happening and being said the whole time, however you will be so deeply relaxed you may find yourself drifting into different levels of awareness. Your subconscious mind is active throughout and that is what your therapist is working with.
Will I remember everyTHING afterwards?
It depends how deep in hypnosis you are, generally most people do remember either everything or certain parts of the experience. The suggestions which have been given to you in hypnosis will resurface in your conscious mind after your therapy session and these will be the thoughts that produce change in your behaviour or way of thinking or feeling.
Will I give away any secrets whilst i am hypnotised?
No, you won’t say or do anything that you don’t want to.
are there any side effects?
The only side effects are beneficial ones of feeling more relaxed afterwards and feeling more positive about whatever it was you sought hypnotherapy for. Hypnosis is a perfectly natural state.
CAN I BE HYPNOTISED AGAINST MY WILL?
Anyone can resist hypnosis during a session and therefore it won’t work, however the question remains as to why someone would seek hypnotherapy if they didn’t want it to help them. Hypnosis requires your co-operation, your therapist will show you the way and you can choose if you want to go there or not.
