FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHAT IS HYPNOSIS?

Hypnosis is a naturally occurring relaxed state of mind. We all experience hypnotic trance every day when we daydream or ‘let our mind wander’ doing everyday activities such as cooking, driving, reading, or exercising.  In this state of mind our unconscious mind becomes more accessible and, along with our conscious mind, more open to change.  Hypnosis is a powerful tool for self-improvement and personal development.

CAN ANYONE BE HYPNOTISED?

Yes, anyone can be hypnotised as long as they are willing, want change, and follow the hypnotist’s instructions.

IS HYPNOSIS SAFE AND CAN I BE FORCED TO DO THINGS?

Yes, hypnosis is safe. It is a natural state of mind that we all experience every day. Hypnosis is not mind control or brainwashing, and you cannot be made to do anything against your will.

HOW DOES HYPNOSIS WORK ?

Hypnosis works by relaxing the conscious mind and accessing the unconscious mind, where our memories and beliefs are stored. In this state, the hypnotist can make positive suggestions to help a client overcome negative thought patterns and behaviours.

WHAT DOES HYPNOSIS FEEL LIKE?

There’s no expected or pre-defined that you will respond to hypnosis. Everyone’s experience will be personal and unique to them. Hypnosis isn’t about ‘going to sleep’. It is a relaxed state of mind that lies somewhere slightly past daydreaming. This is a natural state that we all drift in and out of many times every day. Some people will sense themselves going into trance while some won’t. For some visualisation and images will be vivid, while for others sounds or physical sensations might form a more significant part of what’s experienced.

WHAT CAN HYPNOSIS BE USED FOR?

Hypnosis can be used for a wide range of issues, including anxiety, addictions, chronic pain, lack of confidence, depression, fears and phobias, stress, poor sleep, and weight loss.

WHAT HAPPENS DURING A HYPNOSIS SESSION?

During a session, you will be guided into a relaxed state of mind. I will then make positive suggestions to help you overcome any negative thought patterns or behaviours. You will remain in control throughout the session, and you can end the session at any time if you feel uncomfortable.

HOW MANY SESSIONS ARE NEEDED?

The number of sessions will depend on the individual and the issue being addressed. Some clients may see results after just one session, while others may require several sessions to achieve their goals.

CAN HYPNOSIS BE DONE REMOTELY?

Yes. Hypnosis can be done online using apps like Zoom or FaceTime. The results are just as effective as for face-to-face sessions.
