What is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis can be described as an altered state of conciousness where the subconscious mind is open to suggestion and will be able to accept ideas and thoughts which will be of benefit to the whole being.

Can anyone be Hypnotised?

Hypnosis is a two-way activity. It requires the full co-operation of the client for it to be successful. The client must:

  • Want it to happen
  • Expect it to happen
  • Allow it to happen

What does it feel like?

Hypnosis is a very pleasant experience but probably not what you may be expecting.You will be fully conscious of what is being said to you and have full recollection afterwards. You will be in control at all times but feel very deeply relaxed.

My mind is always on the go, will I be able to relax?

At first you may well be thinking “is this working” or “am I being hypnotised?” and this is perfectly normal. There are many techniques used to induce hypnosis, so your mind and body will eventually settle and you will be left feeling very comfortable, peaceful and relaxed.

Will I be in control and will I remember anything?

You will be totally in control. You will hear everything that is said to you and have total recall of the session.

Do I need to do anything to prepare for my hypnotherapy?

All you need to have is a desire to be hypnotised and the ability to relax and follow instructions.

Can I be ‘stuck’ in hypnosis?

No, absolutely not.

Can I be made to do anything against my will?

No, definitely not. You won't find yourself clucking like a chicken, doing an Elvis impersonation or anything of the like!

Is it safe for me to drive home afterwards?

Yes. You may well be feeling very relaxed and contented but your reactions will return to normal immediately after the session concludes.

What is Cognitive Behaviour Therapy?

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a science-based psychological approach to overcoming problems and emotional distress.
