Do I lose control whilst under hypnosis?
When you get lost in a book or film, or when you are driving a car do you lose control? Hypnosis is very much like these states. It is focused attention. You have the power to resist if you wish and you have the power to control how deep you go into hypnosis. You can emerge from hypnosis at any point you wish without any issues or side effects. At no point during a hypnotherapy session are you not in control of yourself.
As Hypnotherapists, our therapy revolves around getting you into a relaxed state of consciousness where we can offer the unconscious mind positive suggestions. The unconscious mind will only take in suggestions that we have agreed upon beforehand. Any suggestions that are not in line with your goal or morals will not be accepted by the unconscious part of your mind. Hypnosis is completely safe and side effect free.
What does hypnosis feel like?
This varies from person to person. Hypnosis is a state of deep relaxation. Some individuals hear every word that the hypnotherapist says and are surprised by just how awake they are at the end. Others go quite deep and may not remember much about the actual hypnosis. Neither is right or wrong, there is only what is right for you. Quite often, clients will come out of hypnosis feeling extremely relaxed as they haven’t allowed themselves to relax in quite this way in a long time.
Does hypnotherapy work for everyone?
The short answer is no. There is not therapy in the world that works 100% for everyone, this is why there are so many different types of therapy. It is estimated that around 90% of the UK population will respond to hypnosis and allow themselves to go into the trance state. For some clients in may be more effective than others but our success rate is high.
How many sessions will I need?
This varies from client to client. As a general rule we ask clients to budget their time and money for 3 sessions. Consider this an investment in your health. After this further sessions may be needed but again this varies from client to client. If we are reaching 5 or 6 sessions and significant change has not been made then we will be looking at what could be done differently or a different service that may be beneficial instead. We are not in the business of plugging our service to people if they are not responding. All of this will of course be discussed with you at the start when you make initial contact. We will not proceed with any sessions until you are happy to do so so ask as many questions as you need.
Do you do a discount?
We do not do a discount and will not do so. This is because hypnotherapy is an extremely effective tool and by lowering the price it not only devalues the process, but it lowers the commitment of the client. If you paid £10 for a service then you wouldn’t be at too much of a loss if it didn’t work. But if you paid £180 for three sessions then you have already made a commitment to yourself to change and the money paid acts as a huge incentive.
How do I know that the hypnotherapist is qualified?
Our hypnotherapists are trained to the highest level and are more than happy to discuss their training with you as well as inform you of the professional bodies they belong to. The professional bodies ensure that all hypnotherapists continue with CPD (Continuing Professional Development) to keep them at the highest level and ensure they are able to offer the highest service.
