Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What is Hypnosis?
Hypnosis / trance is like daydreaming, We experience this natural state of mind all the time , it’s natural. You can often feel this just before you fall asleep or wake up. You are totally in control and aware of everything that’s happening.

What does hypnotherapy feel like?
Hypnotherapy is a pleasant, relaxing and enjoyable experience. Clients describe it as being relaxing, a bit like a daydream and often enjoy it so much that they want to stay for longer. You remain aware and in control at all times and leave relaxed yet alert.

Am I in control?
Yes, you are in total control. You are fully aware of everything that is going on around you and you cannot be made to do anything that you do not want to do. People cannot however, be hypnotised if they don’t want to be.

Does hypnotherapy work?
Yes, hypnotherapy can be amazingly powerful at helping people to make the changes they want to make in their lives. However it is not a miracle cure, it still requires work and commitment on your part. We work as a partnership together.

Is Hypnotherapy safe for children?
Hypnotherapy for children and young people is considered both effective and safe. Children tend to respond very well to hypnosis as they are naturally quite imaginative and use their subconscious minds a great deal more than adults do. Hypnotherapy can help to address a number of issues commonly experienced in childhood, including exam stress, sleep problems, bed-wetting, phobias and low self-esteem.

Are there any dangers?
None. You will be in a safe environment with a qualified therapist and you will simply be relaxed.

How does stage hypnotism compare to hypnotherapy?
Stage hypnotists thoroughly vet their participants before hand – they choose extroverts who want to perform on the stage and who would not embarrass themselves or the hypnotist by not playing along. Since hypnosis cannot make someone do something they do not want to do, the participant subconsciously wants to do as the hypnotist asks and play along.

What about my G.P or other professionals?
Always continue to take your doctors advice and medication and tell your doctor/other professionals of your wishes to use hypnotherapy. We like to work alongside professionals as a supportive therapy and work collaboratively keeping your health and wellbeing of upmost importance.
