General HypnoSIS FAQs
The hypnosis session begins with a slow gradual transition so that you can get relaxed while taking you into a deeper and deeper state of relaxation. As you're breathing and heart rate slows down, the brainwaves slow down as well. Your body is relaxed and your mind is relaxed. Expect to feel revitalized after a hypnotherapy session!
Some people experience warmth and maybe some heaviness of the legs and arms; and a reluctance to move or speak. Very often people think they have not been hypnotized because they really didn’t feel that different and could still hear everything said to them.
In a normal session, you will remain aware of everything around you. Your subconscious mind hears everything and you are aware of internal experiences.
When you are in a hypnotic trance, you are not actually asleep. You will hear everything said during a session, even if you drift off or experience daydreams. If you do fall asleep, the "suggestions" will still be absorbed into your subconscious mind.
No one can make you do or say anything you don’t want to do in or out of hypnosis. This is not mind control. The old model of hypnosis from scary movies and novels says that the hypnotist does something to you, puts you under and makes suggestions to you that you then have to carry out. Hypnotherapy is not stage hypnosis. Hypnotherapy is a gentle, loving process and hypnotherapists are trained to not judge. You will heal and change in your own timing.
NO. Because the hypnotic trance is so relaxing, people often wish that they could stay there. Even when you drift off into daydreams, you will easily come back when the hypnotist begins instructions for returning to normal waking awareness. In over two hundred years of recorded hypnosis history, there is no documented case of anyone being hurt with hypnosis. Hypnosis can only be used in a positive way. If anyone tries to give you suggestions against your morals, religious beliefs or anything you feel strongly about, you could instantly emerge from the state of relaxation on your own. Know that your subconscious mind is always protecting you.
You accept only the suggestions that are right for you. Prior to hypnosis, suggestions are discussed and are agreed to between you and the hynotherapist. While in a trance, you tap into unconscious resources and insights you didn’t know you had.
It feels great! Hypnosis is a natural state that feels similar to that feeling you get right before you fall asleep at night. When you awaken, you feel refreshed and revitalized. You’re mindful the entire time, aware of everything going on around you as well as what your unconscious is revealing to you. At the end of every session your mind is calm and clear and your body is refreshed, and relaxed.
It depends. Some people remember everything after a session and some people remember almost nothing. This is not because of a suggestion by the hypnotherapist that the client will forget. It is because of a slight amnesia that usually occurs after being hypnotized. Usually, the client recalls what happened during a session later that day.
Most people can be hypnotized and go into hypnosis in various ways. Part of the hypnotherapist’s job is to identify what approach will work best for which subject. The biggest prerequisite is simply the client's willingness to be hypnotized.
Hypnotherapy works for the majority. Those who do not benefit from hypnotherapy are those with a mental health disorder that is based on a brain-pattern change, like schizophrenia or bipolar disorder.
