Does it work?
Yes. Hypnosis is very effective and works for thousands of people every day, no matter what the issue is. It is safe, simple and scientifically proven.
Will I be asleep?
No. You are in a relaxed and aware state and in control of your experience. Hypnosis is ultimately self-hypnosis, albeit with direction and skilful guidance of your attending therapist.
How will I feel during and after the session?
During the session, you will feel relaxed and comfortable within yourself. Hypnosis is a natural state that we all experience at different times so it will be familiar to you.
Afterwards, you may feel excited to go out and be this new self, or more careful to take your time in adapting to this new self. However you feel, you will discover a more liberated and empowered you.
What if I can’t be hypnotised?
There is a myth that some people can’t be hypnotised and some therapists can describe these people as ‘resistant’ to hypnosis. Everyone can experience hypnosis as long as you choose to.
Am I assured of confidentiality?
Yes. Your records are confidential. They are not shown to anyone without your explicit permission. In the case you may choose to see a medical practitioner you may need access to your records.
How many sessions will I need?
You may need one to two sessions or more depending on your issue or issues. Hypnosis goes to the heart of the matter and accesses memories when decisions that were age appropriate were made. Observing yourself ‘back then’ helps to step aside from your younger self and make more adult decisions to live the kind of life that you want.
Some issues are quick to deal with, as your understanding and willingness to change make it so. Others such as anxiety and depression can be more multilayered and take longer. You can expect to feel much better after the first session.
What if I uncover something that I don’t want to share?
Your experience is yours to share or not too. Sometimes, a memory or experience will come up that you are unsure about, and need to process it in your own way. This in no way affects the outcome of your hypnosis session.
Do you do regression?
Yes. Regression (taking a person back to an earlier time in their life) is an important part of hypnosis to help discover the origin of an issue. To overcome most issues, it is important to go back to the source, and to repair it from that place to effect a difference in the present.
What ages do you work with?
From 8 years to onwards. Children younger than 8 are generally easy to work with and are very receptive to hypnosis. However a parent needs to be present for a child under 14 years of age. And the child’s need has to be ascertained first, as in what serves the child best for them.
