Frequently Asked Questions

What is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis is a state of altered awareness during which our subconscious mind is more open and receptive to suggestions that are given. We drift in and out of different levels of awareness throughout the day, absorbing information on the subliminal level as well as a conscious one. The levels of awareness range from a state of alertness to a sleep state. There's no rigid boundary setting of one level to the next; the levels blend into each other.

Is Hypnosis like sleeping?

No, however. you will be aware of everything that is happening and being said the entire time. You will be so deeply relaxed that you may find yourself drifting into different levels of awareness.

Are there any side effects from hypnosis?

There are only beneficial side effects of feeling more relaxed, healthier, better sleep, and on and on and on.. 15 minutes of hypnosis is equal to 4 hours of sound sleep.

Will I lose control when I am in hypnosis?

No - the client always has complete control. Hypnosis is not mind control. Hypnosis requires teamwork between the client and hypnotherapist.

Who can benefit from hypnotherapy?

Almost everyone can benefit from hypnotherapy.

I can’t be hypnotized.

Do you daydream? Have you ever driven somewhere but reached your destination without consciously knowing the route you took? This is a myth - everyone goes in and out of hypnosis daily. Your level of suggestibility/ responsiveness to hypnosis determines how your subconscious mind learns. Many people feel they can’t be hypnotized because the hypnotherapist isn’t speaking the right “language” to them.
