Some Commonly Asked Questions about Hypnosis

WHAT IF I DON’T WAKE UP?

It is not possible. If after putting someone into a hypnotic trance the hypnotist were to suddenly drop dead, one of two things will happen: You will immediately wake up or ‘shock waken’ or you will fall into a normal sleep, and wake when you are ready There is absolutely NO chance of anyone being ‘locked’ in hypnosis forever.

CAN EVERYONE BE HYPNOTISED?

Almost everyone can be hypnotised - with the exception of young children under the age of 5 and the severely mentally disturbed. People do go into different depths of hypnosis, but hypnotherapy can be of benefit to everyone.

WILL I BLURT OUT ALL MY PERSONAL SECRETS?

No, you will always be in full control of everything you say and do. There is no question of being in the power of the hypnotherapist and made to do things you don’t want to do.

 

WILL I ACTUALLY BE ASLEEP?

Although the word ‘sleep’ is frequently used in hypnosis, you will neither be asleep nor wide awake – but somewhere in the middle. You will be in a state in which all your natural senses will be around 30% more efficient that usual. You will be FULLY AWARE of what is going on at ALL times.

WILL I REMEMBER EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENS?

Like attending any other form of presentation or talk, you will remember the majority of what happens during the hypnotic session.

WHEN IN HYPNOSIS, WILL I DO THINGS AGAINST MY WILL?

Certainly NOT - a person in hypnosis is in TOTAL CONTROL of the situation at all times.

ARE THERE ANY SIDE AFFECTS?

There are no unwanted side affects from hypnotherapy. It is a natural and safe process and you will return to full consciousness, feeling relaxed and confident.
