Can anyone be hypnotised?
Yes, if they want to be, though it is not advisable to try to hypnotise anyone who is intoxicated with alcohol or high on drugs. People who suffer from severe psychotic illnesses often do not respond well to hypnosis and should always consult their GP or medical consultant beforehand.
Will I be asleep?
No. I will be observing you at all times and although you will be extremely relaxed and in a level of trance you will not reach the sleep state.
Will I be asked to divulge things I don’t wish to?
No, absolutely not. Regardless of how deeply you may go into trance, you remain in full control of the situation. You will be fully able to speak if you wish/need to, or not as the case may be.
In addition to the professional ethics I adhere to, your subconscious mind protects you at all times and you will never say or do anything under hypnosis that you do not choose to.
Will you have any control over my mind?
No. As a clinical hypnotherapist I act only as the catalyst for helping you to work things through yourself in your own mind, enabling you to overcome old habits and behaviours and to deal with issues in a more positive way.
How many session will I need?
I will assess you as an individual in order to ensure the best possible outcome. Some issues can be dealt with in just one session whilst other, more complex issues will require more. I will advise on how many sessions you will require at the onset. You will never be encouraged to have more sessions than you actually need.
