Common Questions About Hypnosis

Will I go to sleep?

No. Hypnosis works best when you are relaxed but not asleep. You will still be able to speak and get up and walk out of the room if you choose to, although no client I have ever had has ever done that. The process is very enjoyable.

What if I can’t be hypnotised?

Many people worry they won’t be able to go ‘under’, but in truth we all hypnotise ourselves all the time. If you drive home and go on ‘autopilot’ for the last mile or so, you are in a hypnotic state. When you day dream you are in a hypnotic state. It is an entirely natural process and I simply help you to achieve it more quickly than you would be able to do it on your own.

How does hypnosis work?

Everything we do while we are awake we do at two levels – conscious and unconscious. When we agree with something, we say ‘yes’. That is our conscious response. When we agree we are also likely to nod our heads. We do not consciously do it. It happens anyway, as an unconscious response.

Hypnosis allows us to access the unconscious mind because deep relaxation switches off the conscious one. For example, on a conscious level we might decide we are on a diet. However, a bad day at work and we unconsciously reach for a biscuit and the diet is blown. This unconscious link between stress and eating biscuits will have been set up either by childhood experiences – fall over and your mum gives you a sweet – or will have become a habit. When something becomes a habit, a conscious decision to eat a biscuit becomes automatic` or unconscious.

Because hypnosis can access the unconscious mind, we can ‘reboot’ it and remove any viruses that have been slowing down your progress. Those annoying self-defeating behaviours that have seemed so difficult to escape can finally be overcome.
