Hypnotherapy FAQs

Read through my Hypnotherapy FAQs and if there is anything you would like to discuss in more detail please get in touch.

Is it like stage hypnosis can you make me do things I don’t want to do?

No, its nothing like it. It is a very relaxing process where you will be comfortable and completely in control throughout.


What is being hypnotised like?

It’s like a kind of daydream really – hypnosis or ‘trance’ is a very relaxing state of body and mind. It is also a very normal state – in fact we go into trance many times a day, when we are driving our cars, watching television or out exercising for example.

You are probably familiar of times when driving that you can’t remember the last part of your journey or getting ‘into the zone’ when exercising. That is you naturally going into trance. Trance is when the conscious and subconscious mind come together and focus on the same thing at the same time working to find solutions right for you.


What will happen in a session?

Firstly you will attend a free of charge consultation where details of the therapy will be discussed and your needs and goals discussed.

This is Solution Focused Hypnotherapy, so in follow up sessions the session is split into two parts, the first part is preparation for the hypnotherapy discussing positive things in your life and looking at for directions that you want to go in. And the second half of the session is the relaxation hypnosis tailored to you.


How many sessions will I need?

Generally we would say anything between 9 -12 session, however, for Smoking cessation it is a one off 2 hour treatment and for specific fears and phobias three sessions are required.


Is it safe?

Yes, hypnotherapy is very safe. You will be in a safe clinical environment and completely in control throughout.
