Positive Being Advanced Hypnotherapy

Q - What does it feel like?  

We all enter a state of hypnosis naturally everyday when we are drifting off to sleep, day dreaming & before we wake up. Hypnosis to me feels similar to the focus & sense of relaxation I have in meditation. The depth of relaxation can vary from session to session & is a very individual thing. The one thing that everyone agrees on is that it is a wonderfully relaxed sensation. 

Q - Will I say or do things that I do not want to?  

In hypnosis you are in total control at all times. You choose to accept & take on beneficial suggestions.  At any time, you can simply open your eyes and come out of hypnosis or you can choose to enjoy the relaxed sensation. You choose the information you wish to share with me & you will not divulge anything unless you want to.

Q – Why do people behave the way they do at the hypnotic stage shows?  

They are performed as a ‘show’ so designed to be entertaining. They have in fact distorted the truth about hypnosis. The hypnotist will only choose individuals who are most likely to respond positively to the suggestions.  These people are aware of how they should behave on stage from the belief of seeing other such shows. These people are fully aware, totally in control & are choosing to follow the instructions & suggestions they are given. Hypnosis is able to lower our natural inhibitions which is why these people are able to have the confidence to behave in a way they wouldn’t or couldn’t in every day life. 

Q - Will I be able to remember the session?  

Hypnosis is a state of relaxation different to that of sleep. You will be fully aware of everything that is said & going on around you at all times. So yes you will be able to remember everything that occurred in the session.  

Q – Can I get stuck in hypnosis? 

As hypnosis as it is a state of focus and relaxation that you are in control of at all times you can choose to bring yourself out at anytime just by opening your eyes.  

Q - Will you change my personality? 

As a hypnotherapist I can not change anyone’s personality.  You can choose to adapt the aspects of your personality you wish to (i.e., breaking habits) by choosing to accept the suggestions made which can change your behaviour but you are the person in control & your personality will not be changed.

Q - What if I can't be hypnotized?  

Almost anyone can be hypnotized however some people may choose to resist. You are in total control at all times & you have the freedom to choose what you wish to do. To be hypnotized all you need to do is choose to relax.

Q – Can hypnosis remove a terrible memory for me?  

Hypnosis is able to reduce the impact & emotion associated by painful, unwanted memories, so you can move on with your life in a positive way but it can not erase them. 

Q - Is it safe?  

Hypnosis & hypnotherapy has been declared safe by the British Medical Association (BMA).

Q - Can you guarantee results?

Hypnosis, hypnotherapy and NLP are all therapeutic tools to help you overcome issues of concern however like all therapies and medicine results can not be guaranteed.
