Here are the answers to frequently asked questions about hypnotherapy and hypnosis.

Can you tell me something about hypnosis?

Yes, of course. Hypnosis is literally the measures taken in order to lead somebody into a trance-like state giving reference to expanding susceptibility especially when it comes to suggestibility, ability to focus incorporating an intense or extreme foreboding of a complete and utter stress-free scenario. When driving your car on ‘auto pilot’ and arriving at your destination without thinking as to how you got there – means that you were obviously in some form of a hypnotic state.

What’s it like being hypnotised?

It feels great! The psychological state feels kind of like that feeling you get right before you doze off during the evening.
When you awaken, you're feeling invigorated and revitalised. You simply feel as if you're in a restful state with your eyes closed. You'll be able to hear everything including my voice, the sounds outside the building, the sound of cars in the road outside.

A subjective experience such as relaxation is often a lazy day on the beach, but for others it could very well be parachuting or climbing the highest mountain. Likewise, what an individual experiences in a hypnotic state is likened to a totally stress free scenario; albeit, you’re totally aware of your surroundings.

What type of problems does hypnotherapy help with?

There’s such a vast array of concerns for hypnotherapy that you simply may think about it as a remedy for every problem known to mankind — i.e., an answer to all emotional, physical and psychological issues, particularly since hypnotherapy is used with individuals of varying age groups with a multitude of issues.

What are the chances that I will forget everything during a session of hypnotherapy?

You must bear in mind that everything you would like to recollect, you will. The only exception being if you request a suggestion for a cognitive state, whereby you deliberately choose to forget

What is meant by past life regression?

 Regression is assisting a patient with his/her inner thought processes in order to travel back to a past life; such a process purportedly takes someone through a time lapse to an earlier lifetime. In all likelihood, the numerous accounts of such events can be attributed to human inventiveness. However, such past-life happenings may otherwise be health giving and, in many ways, beneficial.

What’s the duration of a post hypnotic suggestion?

Hypnotic suggestions are merely ideas that are given credence to beliefs at a very ‘deep’ level. In fact, there’s no straightforward answer. A post-hypnotic suggestion may last some minutes or an entire lifespan, it depends to a large extent upon a number of things; such as the mental processes and personality of the patient, in addition to their personal well-being in life and the exact content of the suggestion, as well as the way what has been suggested, is demonstrated by the therapist.

How dangerous is hypnosis?

 If hypnosis is not administered correctly, there is a slight chance that it could indeed have a negative influence on a subject, but realistically speaking, this is most unlikely as therapists these days are generally well qualified and highly knowledgeable in their particular field.

Is Hypnosis similar to sleeping?

The short answer is ‘not in any way, shape, or form’. Strangely enough, Hypnos was the Greek god of sleep, so I’m guessing there’s a connection there.  Research has indicated that the psychological hypnotic state and sleep are totally separate states without even a semblance of similarity. To observers, the psychological hypnotic state may seem to be similar to sleeping as a result of suggestions of relaxation that are usually given as part of a hypnotic routine; however, individuals in a hypnotic state are more likely to be in a state where they are fully aware of their surroundings and in complete control of their actions and sensibilities.

Is hypnosis genuine?

The simple answer is ‘yes’! Hypnotic suggestions may change people’s emotions and how they perceive things. For instance, hypnotic suggestions might, under stressful conditions cause the abstract mind to change one’s perceived understanding of pain. We only have to look at the placebo effect where patients are given medicine to cure their ills, and yet, the patients given a placebo also claim to be much better; this is due to the fact that the abstract mind has unwittingly believed that they have taken the correct medicine. Studies that assess live brain activity reveal that hypnosis, as well as hypnotic suggestions change one’s approach to how our physical brains process data.
