Frequently Asked Questions About Hypnosis
What is hypnosis?
Hypnosis can simply be defined as a state of heightened receptivity in which you’re able to refocus your mind and body for success. It’s an integrative process of rebuilding habits and behaviors, as well as emotions, beliefs, and feelings.
Have you ever found yourself completely immersed in an activity to the exclusion of everything else? That is a natural trance state. Common examples of this are while watching a movie and becoming transfixed in the plot. Or in working intently and finding that the last four hours have flown by without your conscious awareness. Perhaps you have been reading a book and been so transfixed that you did not hear someone come in and speak with you. Perhaps they surprised you or “woke” you from the state of mind and had to repeat their salutation to you.
Hypnosis is a naturally occurring state you’ve already experienced thousands of times. It is not manipulation, mind control, or magic. It simply is a tool that will allow you to tap into the power of your mind and take control of your life.
Is hypnosis safe?
Yes, Hypnosis is a natural state of consciousness that everyone experiences on a daily basis.
Will I lose control during hypnosis?
No. Hypnosis is a state of mind that requires consent. You will be aware of what I am saying during the session and cannot be made to do against your own morals. You cannot be made to tell secrets while experiencing hypnosis.
A common misconception of hypnosis involves a potential client thinking that they may be “too strong-willed” to be hypnotized. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. The stronger your ability to focus and concentrate, the faster and easier you will go into hypnosis.
Is hypnosis is against my religion?
Hypnosis has nothing to do with religion. It is purely Scientific & natural. Every single person experiences a certain degree of hypnosis every day of their life – regardless of personal religious belief.
Can anyone be hypnotized?
Yes! Anyone who is willing to be hypnotized can experience the state. When working with an experienced professional, the techniques and program will be customized for you. My clients report they easily achieve the state and can use it for their continued success long after the sessions are over.
I have a friend who tried hypnosis, and they said it didn’t work – what happened?
The success of your experience is dependent on two factors – the client’s willingness for change and the skills of the hypnotist.
If the client doesn’t have an honest desire for change, such as a smoker who is only seeing a hypnotist at the urging of a spouse, they are not prepared to accept the suggestions for positive change. If, however, the smoker is fed up with the habit and no longer wants the cigarettes to be a part of their life, they are primed for success.
How long does it take?
Everyone is different. Rapid change is possible with hypnosis. Most of my clients are scheduled for a brief series of sessions, as my goal is to provide you with the most effective hypnotic process in the most efficient use of your time.
This model allows for an effective series of sessions with continued reinforcement, self-hypnosis training, and proper customization for your unique set of needs.
Most people begin to experience benefits from the very first session, though hypnosis is a process.
Can I get stuck in hypnosis?
No. The worst thing that could happen would be you might fall asleep during the session. If that happens, you will wake up as you normally do after falling asleep.
