Hypnotherapy FAQs

What is hypnotherapy?

Hypnotherapy is a therapeutic technique that involves guided hypnosis to reach a state of deep relaxation and focused attention. In this state, your subconscious mind is more receptive to positive suggestions and therapeutic imagery, helping you address various issues such as pain management, anxiety, and behavioural changes.

How does hypnotherapy work?

During a hypnotherapy session, a trained hypnotherapist guides you into a relaxed, trance-like state. In this state, your conscious mind is quieted, allowing your subconscious mind to become more open to suggestions. The hypnotherapist then uses positive affirmations, visualisations, and therapeutic techniques to help you achieve your desired goals.

Is hypnotherapy safe?

Yes, hypnotherapy is a safe and natural process when conducted by a qualified and trained hypnotherapist. It does not involve any form of mind control or manipulation. You remain fully aware and in control throughout the session.

Can everyone be hypnotised?

Most people can be hypnotised to some degree, but the depth of hypnosis varies from person to person. Factors such as willingness, relaxation, and trust in the hypnotherapist play a significant role in the effectiveness of hypnotherapy.

What issues can hypnotherapy help with?

Hypnotherapy can address a wide range of issues, including but not limited to:

• Pain management
• Stress and anxiety reduction
• Smoking cessation
• Weight loss
• Improving sleep
• Overcoming fears and phobias
• Enhancing performance (work, sports)
• Relationship and heartbreak healing

How many sessions will I need?

The number of sessions required varies depending on the individual and the issue being addressed. Some people may experience significant improvements after just one session, while others may need several sessions to achieve their desired outcomes. Your hypnotherapist will work with you to develop a personalised treatment plan.

What happens during a hypnotherapy session?

A typical hypnotherapy session includes:

Initial Consultation: We discuss the issue whilst looking at how the brain works. You will be given a free download to listen to each night.
Induction: The hypnotherapist guides you into a state of deep relaxation.
Therapeutic Work: Positive suggestions, visualisations, and techniques are used to address your specific issue.
Awakening: You are gently brought back to full awareness, feeling refreshed and relaxed.
Discussion: You may discuss your experience and any thoughts or feelings that arose during the session.

Will I lose control during hypnosis?

No, you will not lose control during hypnosis. You remain fully aware and can choose to come out of the hypnotic state at any time. Hypnotherapy is a collaborative process where you are an active participant.

Can hypnotherapy make me do something against my will?

No, hypnotherapy cannot make you do anything against your will or moral values. You remain in control of your actions and decisions throughout the session.

Is hypnotherapy scientifically proven?

Hypnotherapy has been supported by numerous studies demonstrating its effectiveness for various conditions, particularly for pain management, anxiety, and certain behavioural changes. However, as with any therapeutic approach, results can vary from person to person.
