You can. As long as you wish to enter hypnosis, you will. It’s an easy, enjoyable and thoroughly relaxing process.
Everyone goes in and out of trance all day. For example, have you ever driven along a familiar route and not remembered the journey as your mind was elsewhere? Or have you experienced standing in a long queue and your mind has drifted off?
Hypnosis is very like daydreaming, you are not asleep, but in a pleasant altered state of awareness where you are relaxed and focused on your thoughts.
Change can be fast with hypnosis, with some clients noticing dramatic changes after 1 session.
On average it’s 5-8 sessions per client; some clients decide that they need more, some need less, this depends solely on the individual and the problem they wish to work through.
Although it uses a similar state of relaxation, stage hypnosis is for entertainment only. The stage hypnotist’s trade is one of careful selection and they rely upon the subject’s desire to be the centre of attention and entertain the audience once they are on stage.
A hypnotherapist cannot make you do or say anything that you do not wish to.
Yes, during hypnosis you are fully in control. You cannot be hypnotised without your consent and a hypnotherapist cannot make you do or say something against your wishes.
Hypnosis isn’t magic it is simply a state of very deep relaxation.
You will feel relaxed. Some people feel deeply relaxed whilst others feel a sense of lightness, floating, drifting, calmness, tingling or a heaviness of arms, legs or head. Hypnosis is a safe, relaxing and enjoyable experience.
