Hypnosis – what is it?

Hypnosis is a state of relaxation combined with a sense of heightened awareness, induced by suggestion.

So I’m not asleep then?

No. You will simply be very relaxed.

Are there any causes for concern?

None whatsoever. Hypnosis is a proven therapeutic aid. The only time hypnosis could prove dangerous is whilst driving or using machinery. You should not listen to a hypnotic tape under those circumstances.

Are any drugs or tablets used?

No.

Will I remember what has happened?

Yes. Most people are surprised to find that they remember all that happens during the therapy, it is a state of heightened, not diminished awareness.

Can I speak whilst in hypnosis?

Yes and in hypnoanalysis you will be encouraged to do so.

What does ‘being hypnotised’ feel like?

Common sensations can include feeling very heavy, light, tingling and complete mental and physical relaxation. Many clients report that it is the most relaxed they have ever felt in their entire lives.

Can anyone get ‘stuck’ in hypnosis?

No.

Is my phobia ‘silly’?

No phobia, fear or anxiety is silly. No worry is silly if it is affecting your life and it is worth doing something about it.

Can I be influenced to do anything against my will?

No, and in fact you would be shocked out of the hypnotic state should such a thing happen. All IAPH therapists undergo strict background checks and adhere to code of ethics so this needn’t be a worry.

Do you help children?

Yes children are wonderful candidates who respond incredibly well, often the ‘Blowaway Technique ‘ is used.

Can I be influenced to do anything against my will?

No, and in fact you would be shocked out of the hypnotic state should such a thing happen. All IAPH therapists undergo strict background checks and adhere to code of ethics so this needn’t be a worry.

How many visits are needed?

Simple problems are dealt with in a single session, e.g. stopping smoking. More deep rooted anxieties will take more time to resolve, often 6-8 session.

Do you do home visits?

No. Sessions and consultations are always done at the therapy room.
