What is hypnosis?
Hypnosis is a lot like daydreaming. You are conscious and aware yet remain oblivious to outside distractions. In this state you can deliberately direct your attention to specific goals in order to achieve them. These goals can include quitting smoking, dieting, improving self-esteem, reducing anxiety and depression, pain management and improving memory.

Hypnosis is the state that a person experiences. Hypnotherapy is using that state for beneficial purposes.

How can being in hypnosis help resolve a problem?
When you are in hypnosis you are more relaxed physically and mentally. Your mind operates more efficiently and effectively. When the mind and body are relaxed, you have better access to your memories and past experiences.

Will I know what is happening?
Yes, in fact if anything you can be more aware of what is happening. Although your eyes are closed, your other senses can increase their awareness and sensitivity.

Will I lose control?
No! You remain in control at all times. The hypnotherapist does not have control over you, and, if you decide to get up and walk out, then you will.

What happens if the hypnotherapist has a heart attack?
Should this unlikely event occur, you will open your eyes and act as you would do at any other time if this had happened.

Will I be forced to accept suggestions?

How can I find out more before committing myself?
A 30 minute initial consultation is offered. This is when more details are taken of your circumstances, and you can ask any further questions. You are under no obligation to proceed with hypnotherapy. In order to help you come to a more informed decision, the consultation is free.
