Myths About Hypnotherapy

"I don't think you will be able to hypnotise me!"

I won't if you don’t want to be hypnotised. Most people respond well to hypnosis, but I am purely a guide. If you don't want to be hypnotised you won't.

"I'm frightened I'll say something I don't want to!"

Hypnotherapy is about you! You will not say anything you wish not to! I cannot make you do anything you don't want to do!

"What if I fall asleep in hypnosis?"

You are more aware and more awake during hypnosis than at any time. Your senses are heightened as you subconscious has been brought to the foreground. During therapy, sleep is furthest from your mind.

"Can I get stuck in hypnosis?"

No! Hypnosis is a state of deep relaxation and you cannot get stuck.

"Can hypnosis work quickly?"

Depending on the issues, hypnosis can have very positive results for some people after only one or two sessions. Therapy is a very personal journey and the number of sessions is dependent on the issues raised and the clients own healing.

"Can the Therapist control my mind in hypnotherapy?"

No! The Therapist guides the client into deep relaxation. The Therapist is a facilitator only, allowing the subconscious mind to come to the foreground, accept suggestions given and aid in the healing process. The client is in control at all times.

"I’ve never been hypnotised before and I don’t think I can be as I am too strong minded."

Entering a hypnotic state is linked to intelligence and creativity. Strong minded people are the best to work with.

"What is the difference between a hypnotherapist and a stage hypnotist?"

Clinical Hypnotherapy is a psychological tool to help with a client's condition or concern. Stage hypnosis is a tool for laughs!
