What does hypnosis feel like?
Hypnosis feels different for each person. It is a personal experience. For some, it is a profoundly transformative and vivid state, where they can see colours, shapes, scenes etc, as if they are actually real. For others, it simply feels like they were very relaxed with their eyes closed, listening to what was being said. Generally, it is a state where you feel completely relaxed, allowing your mind to drift and simply enjoy the experience. You aware awake at all times and aware of what is going on around you. Some people hear every word that was said, some drift in and out, others don’t remember a thing because they were enjoying their own little world for a while. Either which way is completely fine…and equally beneficial.
Will you have control of my mind?
No. You have control of your own mind at all times. As a clinical hypnotherapist, my aim is to guide you into a wonderfully relaxed state, physically and mentally. During this state, I can help you to explore your subconscious mind and find answers
to problems you may have and find the solutions that are right for you.
Will I tell you my deepest, darkest secrets?
No. I will rarely ask you to speak during a hypnosis session but regardless, you would never tell me anything you wouldn’t want me to know. So your PIN number and bank account details are completely safe!
Can I get stuck in hypnosis?
No. As the trance state used in hypnosis is simply a very deep level of relaxation, the very worst thing that can happen is that you simply fall asleep. And that’s fine. If that happens, I would simply very gently wake you back up. However, the goal of the hypnotist is to keep you awake, so that you can be aware of what is being said to some extent.
What if I can’t be hypnotised?
Almost anyone of average or above average intelligence can be hypnotised. It is useful to remember that we can all go into a trance state, when we daydream or perhaps get absorbed by a book.
Will you have me clucking like a chicken?
You’d be surprised at how many people ask this! The answer is a very simple; No. You don’t become someone else during hypnosis, and I can’t make you do or say anything you don’t want to do. Anything said in hypnosis that doesn’t fit your moral or ethical code will simply be rejected. Besides, my job is to make hypnosis beneficial for you. Acting like a farm animal is rarely useful in daily life! So, there you have it. Hypnosis is completely natural, safe and enjoyable. It is a state we are all capable of, yet misconceptions, stage acts and cheap tricks have caused many people to miss out on this wonderful experience.
