Hypnosis is real.
Hypnosis is a fantastic tool which can be used in hypnotherapy to change many different emotional and psychological problems. It is generally accepted that all hypnosis is ultimately self-hypnosis.
Contrary to what you may have heard, hypnosis is quite natural, the client is actually in an enhanced state of awareness, and because of this, is able to concentrate entirely on the hypnotist’s voice and instructions.
Hypnosis gives access to the subconscious mind, by-passing the conscious analyzing part of the mind, which allows the therapist to suggest ideas and lifestyle changes.
Hypnotherapy is the “skill” of using hypnosis to alter or remove unwanted habits, behaviors and emotions at a subconscious level.
Answer: Yes, as long as they are willing to be hypnotized.
There are times when hypnosis might not be appropriate:
There will always be unique circumstances which may prevent the use of hypnosis, if anyone is in any doubt at all they should always consult with their own doctor first.
I personally don’t like the word “under” hypnosis, it suggests that the client is under the control of the hypnotist. The reality is that all hypnosis is self-hypnosis. A person can enter hypnosis when they choose to and also exit hypnosis when they choose to.
A hypnotherapist simply acts as a guide or instructor, who works together with the client to achieve the outcome that is desired.
No, hypnosis is not sleep, hypnosis is a heightened state of mental awareness.
No, not unless you want to.
No, in the controlled environment of a hypnotherapy clinic there is nothing to fear.
No, you can’t get stuck in hypnosis. Even people who experience euphoria when in deep hypnosis, after a period of time will become bored and exit hypnosis.
The feelings of hypnosis are different with each individual, most patients feel extreme physical and mental relaxation. some can feel really heavy or light, as if they are floating or drifting, while some experience tingling sensations in their arms and legs.
Some patients feel totally indifferent even though natural hypnosis is taking place. Somnambulistic patients however, who experience the deeper levels of hypnosis, will often visualize beautiful colors and experience feelings of absolute tranquility, bliss and peacefulness.
Yes, hypnosis is safe for children. Children are naturally very susceptible to hypnotism and can draw great benefit from it.
The cost of a hypnosis session varies from therapist to therapist because they all set their own prices. If the therapist is based in an area like London, then you should expect the price of a session to be set according to the high cost of living there.
The cost of the session is also based on the experience and qualifications of the therapist. Hypnotherapy In London could cost you £200 – £500 per session, whilst in Newcastle upon Tyne could cost as little as £85 – £200 per session.
