Frequently Asked Questions About Hypnosis
Most people are surprised at just how relaxing Hypnotherapy is, but there’s always plenty of questions before starting treatment. Here are some of my most frequently asked ones. If you have any other questions that are not answered here, please do not hesitate in contacting me.
What does Hypnosis feel like?
Hypnosis is a natural state of mind; people are often surprised that they hear every word and could get up and walk out of the room at any moment. Unless you enter a deeper state, you may not seem any different, just very relaxed. Most people are surprised at just how relaxing it is.
Is Hypnosis dangerous?
Hypnosis is not a dangerous procedure. It is not mind control or brainwashing. A therapist cannot make a person do something embarrassing or that the person doesn’t want to do.
What conditions can Hypnosis treat?
What will happen in a hypnosis session?
I will help you feel at ease during your session. The session includes guiding you into a trance, where your mind and body can completely relax and let go of any tension. Clients report feeling calm, light, focused, sleepy, and pain-free. You are not asleep during the session.
How does Hypnosis work?
During hypnosis, your body relaxes and your thoughts become more focused. Like other relaxation techniques, hypnosis lowers blood pressure and heart rate, and changes certain types of brain wave activity. In this relaxed state, you will feel at ease physically yet fully awake mentally, and you may be highly responsive to suggestion.
There are several stages of hypnosis:
- Reframing the problem
- Becoming relaxed, then absorbed (deeply engaged in the words or images presented by a hypnotherapist)
- Dissociating (letting go of critical thoughts)
- Responding (complying with a hypnotherapist’s suggestions)
- Returning to usual awareness
