Frequently Asked Questions
The usual questions asked about the hypnotherapy session are :
'What is a hypnotherapy session like?'
Generally speaking, during the hypnotherapy session itself, the client is invited to relax in an armchair or couch and is then guided into a state of deep physical and mental relaxation.
'Are their medical considerations?'
Few medical conditions contra-indicate the use of hypnosis, though in some cases liason with the clients practitioner may be appropriate. Almost everyone who wishes to be hypnotised can achieve a level of relaxation sufficient to allow therapy to take place,
'Will I lose control?'
While in hypnosis, you are still generally aware of your surroundings and can choose to come out of hypnosis at any time.
'Will I do something or say something stupid?'
No responsible therapist would attempt to hypnotise anyone against their will, or encourage an individual to act against their natural inclinations whilst in hypnosis.
'What is it like?'
Each client experiences hypnotherapy in their own individual way but generally speaking it is a very calming, deeply relaxing and pleasant experience.
'How will I wake up?'
At the end of the hypnosis session, you are gently returned to the normal waking state. Most new clients are surprised at how far away the reality of hypnotherapy is from any prior expectation of mind control and find the experience deeply relaxing.
