Common Questions - Hypnotherapy

What does hypnosis feel like?

Hypnosis feels like you are in a deeply relaxed state, eliminating anxiety similar to when you are first drifting off to sleep or waking up although you will still be fully aware of everything that is going on around you.

Will you make me do something with which I am not comfortable?

It is impossible for me to get you to do something that is not in line with your own values and beliefs.  For example, if your goal is to stop smoking, then during the hypnotherapy session, you will remain in control and will only accept those positive suggestions that are right for you to achieve what you want.

What if I don't 'wake up'?

Hypnosis is NOT the same as sleep - you are always awake but in a very relaxed state and so have the ability to choose to end the session and leave at any point, think of it like a deep meditative state.  You can not get 'stuck' in trance, you are always in control.  Your stress levels will be reduced as we go through a deeply relaxing process to work on what you want - weight management, fears or phobias, anxiety.
