What does it feel like to be hypnotised?questions

Some clients have said of hypnotherapy, that they have never been so relaxed. It is usually somewhere between being fully awake and being asleep a day dream state.

Are there any side effects from hypnotherapy?

Hypnosis is a perfectly natural state; the only side effects are all totally beneficial, such as feeling more relaxed after hypnotherapy, confident and more positive about whatever you sought hypnotherapy for. There are no negative side effects of hypnotherapy.

Will I be asleep in hypnosis? What if I can’t wake up?

During your hypnotherapy session, you will be safe at all times. The nearest I can describe it to you is like daydreaming and we all have been watching a programme on TV and not noticed some of the programme, or driving home in the car and can’t remember the drive but have always stopped for a red light.

If there was a need to come out of hypnotherapy due to the fire alarm going off you would automatically come around and deal with the situation. Everyone has awakened from hypnosis; it is only stories conjured up by the film companies that portray someone staying asleep.

Will I be under the hypnotherapists power?

No, you are not under the hypnotherapists power this is an image created by stage hypnotists back in the Victorian times. You cannot be made to do anything against your will or against your morals. Extensive tests show that a subject will only comply with hypnotic suggestions that fit their moral and value codes.

While hypnotised you will know perfectly well what you are doing and saying. The National Guild of Hypnotists, of which I am a member, have a ‘Code of Conduct’ which all members have to abide by.

What if I can’t be hypnotised?

Studies show that everyone is able to enter the hypnotic trance state if they wish to enter. We are all in and out of different trance states throughout the day; with hypnosis, we are able to get out of limiting trances and into more resourceful ones.

Hypnosis is like any skill that can be learnt, the more you practice it the easier it becomes.

How long do hypnotic suggestions last?

While you are in a trance you will be given positive suggestions, options and new ideas to your unconscious mind giving it new information so that you can begin to change your mind about things if you so wish. Suggestion can last a lifetime, it will depend on each client.
