Frequently Asked Questions
How many sessions will I need?
This varies - it depends on you and what you are hoping to achieve. Smoking cessation involves a one-off extended session and phobias can be dealt with in as little as 4 sessions. For anything else it will depend on your progress, and you will be the best one to judge that! However, results can be achieved fairly quickly and many people find they are ready to move on after about 8-12 sessions.
Is everyone able to be hypnotised?
Anyone who wants to can be hypnotised - it is really just a state of deep focused relaxation.
Conversely, if you don't want to be hypnotised, then it won't happen - you are in control!
Can I be made to do something silly?
No. You remain fully in control at all times and can not be made to do anything you don't want to do. Hypnotherapy is not the same as stage hypnotism, which is for entertainment purposes only and often involves making people laugh. In the latter, the volunteers are either consciously or subconsciously cooperating so are not actually being controlled against their will at all.
Will I be made to reveal something I'd rather keep private?
No, you are in control of what you say at all times, both in and out of trance.
Will I be made to relive past bad memories or traumas?
No, rather than dwell on the past we focus on the future and what you want to achieve.
Can I drive after my session?
Yes, it is perfectly safe to drive afterwards. You will feel refreshed and fully aware at the end of the session so there is no need to worry.
