Frequently Asked Questions

question markIs hypnosis safe?

Yes. Because hypnosis is a natural, everyday state of mind it is perfectly safe.

When you become engrossed in a book or a film, you are in a state of hypnosis. When you are daydreaming you are also in a state of hypnosis. So you can see it really is an everyday state of mind.


Will I still be in control?

Yes you will be in control and fully aware during the session. This is a common question, and an understandable one for anyone who has seen stage hypnotism. What you see in a stage show is nothing more than co-operation on the part of the hypnotised individual.. If they are asked to do something they don't want to do then they won't do it. Hypnosis is NOT mind control.

You cannot be made to do or say anything against your will while you are in hypnosis.


Many hypnotherapists use the word ‘trance’ in their literature and language which can make someone feel nervous as they are familiar with the staged trances people such as mediums apparently enter.

In hypnosis the term trance means a totally relaxed state of mind and body.


What's your success rate?

Very high. Success is difficult to measure accurately but the vast majority of my clients are satisfied with the treatment and care they receive.


Can I get stuck in hypnosis?

No you can't. A hypnotherapist will usually "bring you out" by counting from one to five, or something similar. If he wasn't to do this you'd come out in your own time.


What does hypnosis feel like?

There's no such thing as a hypnotised feeling. Everyone's experience is different and unique. Some people may feel very light, almost as if they're floating. Others might feel very heavy. For most people it's just a very nice feeling of deep relaxation. Some people expect to feel unconscious or "out of it". This simply doesn't happen.


Will I have a permanent outcome?

Where possible, yes. The methods I use attempt to deal with the root cause of the problem, whatever it is, so that a permanent positive outcome is achieved.


How many sessions will I need?

The number of sessions can vary, issues may be able to be resolved in as few as three. However, in my experience surface issues may have an underlying cause that need to be addressed to enable the client to move forward. This can be established within the initial sessions to assess how many are likely to be needed.
