Frequently Asked Questions

What is Hypnosis?


Hypnosis is a natural state of relaxed concentration. We all experience some state of hypnosis, every day. When the conscious part of the mind has been distracted, allowing the subconscious mind to take over.

We drift in and out of different levels of awareness many times a day, absorbing information on a subliminal level as well as a conscious one.

Examples of a light hypnotic states… Daydreaming; before you fall asleep; as you are waking up; when you became so deeply absorbed in a task/book/movie/piece of music/etc.

It’s a state of altered awareness during which our subconscious mind is more open and receptive to suggestions that are given to our subconscious mind. This part of our mind influences what we think, how we feel, and the choices that we make.

Hypnosis is not sleep and it isn’t unconsciousness. You are always aware of everything that is taking place. You remain in total control. You cannot be made to do anything that would go against your moral beliefs and will accept only those suggestions that would be beneficial to you. You'll usually hear everything but it's quite natural for your thoughts to occasionally drift off elsewhere.

Your hypnotherapist will work with your imagination to help you to achieve your goals.
