QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

 

WHAT IS HYPNOTHERAPY?

Hypnotherapy is an alternative therapy which promotes positive changes to your emotional, mental and physical state by using hypnosis (a state of mind similar to sleep) to enable you to make necessary changes to your thoughts, feelings and behaviour. Hypnotherapy is a collaborative process and a very effective way to treat a number of issues including managing destructive thought patterns and habits, taking the time to properly relax and destress, conquering alcohol abuse, weight management, tackling fears and phobias, and pain control. For the therapy to work at its very best, it is essential that you really want to make the changes.

HOW DOES HYPNOTHERAPY WORK?

During your hypnotherapy session, I will guide you through a process that induces a trance-like state (hypnosis) and you will simply feel peaceful and relaxed.  When you are in hypnosis, you will find it easier to focus your attention and your mind so that you are able to easily and effortlessly make the changes you are looking for.

WHAT DOES HYPNOSIS FEEL LIKE?

Hypnosis is a unique experience. Some people remain fully aware during the entire process and can recall everything that happens; others experience states of relaxation that are so deep that they feel completely detached from what is happening. We are often so distracted by our surroundings that it becomes difficult to properly focus on ourselves and our conscious minds become cluttered. Our session will help you to break through these day-to-day concerns and allow you to focus completely on the problem at hand. When you experience hypnosis your conscious mind is quiet, allowing you to make the required changes at a deep and lasting level.

WHAT HYPNOSIS IS NOT?

Swinging watches, mesmerising gazes, gravelly voices, spells, and certainly not mind control.  These are misconceptions many people have based on something they have read or seen in a movie or live show.  Hypnosis is all about getting in touch with your unconscious mind to change and adapt certain thoughts, feelings and behaviours. You can bring yourself out of hypnosis at any time you choose, you certainly can't be made to do anything you don't want to do, and you can't be hypnotised if you don't want to be.
