How does hypnotherapy work?
Hypnotherapy allows the therapist to work directly with your subconscious - helping you perceive events in a different and often more positive light, while distracting the conscious mind through a series of deep relaxations, thus causing a dissociation between the two states.

Is hypnotherapy safe?
Hypnotherapy is completely safe, non-invasive and a totally natural state. Often it can effectively resolve many challenges in a few sessions.

Who may benefit from hypnotherapy?
Everyone can benefit from hypnotherapy, whether they wish to give up smoking, have the confidence to make a speech in front of a crowd of people, stop grinding their teeth, improve a sports performance, feel completely relaxed before dental procedure, manage their weight… Hypnotherapy can improve these and many other ailments.

Do you lose control?
People are sometimes concerned that they will ‘lose control’ in hypnosis. However, regardless of how deeply you may go into hypnosis and however passive you may appear to be, you actually remain in full control of the situation. Nobody can make you do anything that you do not want to do.

Can you explain how it feels to be in hypnosis? Is it a pleasant feeling?
It feels great! Most people will experience different bodily sensations ranging from a dry mouth, limbs feeling very heavy or light, or tingling sensations. The majority of people feel relaxed and very comfortable.

Is hypnosis dangerous?
No, hypnosis is not dangerous. It is a natural state of the mind. The mind has natural defenses built in which will automatically reject any suggestions it deems harmful.

Will I become weak-minded or develop a ‘weak will’ through hypnosis?
No, hypnosis is often used to boost a person's concentration and will power.

What if I get ‘stuck’ and can’t wake up?
You can't get stuck. You can bring yourself out of the relaxed state whenever you want. A subject who is very deep may drift into sleep and if not awakened by someone else would eventually awaken on their own.
