What is Hypnotherapy?

Hypnotherapy is therapy under hypnosis. Hypnosis is when the body is deeply and pleasantly relaxed whilst the mind is highly focused and alert. This is known as the hypnotic trance state and is reached by simply listening to the sound of the therapists’ voice. Whilst in this trance state the therapist directs the person using appropriate scripts and techniques in ways that deal with whatever change that person wants to accomplish in their life.




What does it feel like?

In hypnosis both mind and body are very pleasantly calm and relaxed. Some people equate it to that deeply comfortable feeling of relaxation you experience when you are waking up, awake but so relaxed you don’t want to move.
The mind is highly focused, like when you lose yourself in a film, or when reading a book you become so engrossed you fully imagine the images described in the pages, and time just seems to fly by.

You may of experienced moments when you have been so engrossed, so absorbed in what you are doing, you have been completely unaware that someone has entered or left the room, and that they may have been trying to ask you if you wanted a cup of tea. It can be said that such things as day-dreaming itself is an hypnotic state, and that everyone experience hypnotic states on a daily bases.

You can enjoy this natural relaxed state whenever you want once you have been shown self hypnosis.




How do I know I can be hypnotised?

Anyone can be hypnotised to one degree or another. As long as you feel confident, comfortable and relaxed with your chosen therapist, and are willing to be hypnotised, you will more than likely be Hypnotised. The therapist has a variety of techniques to choose from to suit each individuals needs, and with time you will find it easier and quicker to achieve deeper and deeper states of hypnosis.



Could I be influenced to do anything against my will?

NO absolutely not.
You are in complete control throughout, and will be aware of what is happening at all times. You can respond to anything in the way you want to respond. For example, if a fire alarm was to sound whilst you were in trance, you would immediately awaken without assistance and respond to the alarm in the appropriate way. Any suggestions that you do not agree with would simply be rejected. The aim for the therapist is to help you achieve the goals and changes you want to achieve. As therapists we subscribe to the British Society of Clinical Hypnosis ethics and Code of Conduct



What about stage hypnosis?

Stage hypnosis is for entertainment only. The Hypnotist will carefully select willing participants from the audience, these participants want to be there and are willing to do silly things to help the hypnotist put on an entertaining show.



Could I become ‘stuck’ in hypnosis?

No you cannot become trapped or stuck in a hypnotic state. Even unassisted you will come out of trance whenever you are ready, whenever you want to.



Can I speak whilst in hypnosis?

Yes and in some cases you may be encouraged to do so.



Will I remember it?

Amnesia is a common hypnotic phenomenon and can happen spontaneously. Just like dreams you may find it difficult to remember the content. Generally people will retains as much recollection as is required for improvement.



How many sessions will I need?

This will depend on the therapy requested, and how deep rooted the issue is and how well you respond. As with all therapies, some people respond quicker than others. Some therapies will only take a single session whilst others will take longer. In general we would work up to the point when you feel you have done enough.
