WHAT IS HYPNOTHERAPY?
Hypnosis can be traced back to the ancient Babylonians, Greeks and Egyptians and is named after the Greek word for sleep – Hypnos. In Hypnosis, sleep does not mean the same as we understand our bedtime sleep to be. A good way to think of Hypnosis is a state of deep relaxation and focus. You are in control, not the Hypnotist. As you can go into this trance state, so you can come out of it whenever you want. When your conscious mind relaxes and becomes detached from everyday worries, then your subconscious mind can commence doing its wonderful work, in its own wonderful way, free from interruptions and sabotage from your conscious mind. This relaxed state is known as trance.
Research has shown that our unconscious mind makes 90% of our decisions and that behaviours are established at a very young age. The unconscious mind’s primary function is to protect us. However, behaviours learned at a young age are not always helpful in dealing with issues that we face as adults. Although our conscious mind knows how to deal with situations rationally, the unconscious mind which is the driving force, can create a raft of limiting and unhelpful behaviours because of early programming.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Will I be aware of what’s happening while I’m in hypnosis?
Yes, in fact, within the hypnotic state, we are actually hyper-aware of what is going on around us.
Will I lose control of myself while in hypnosis?
Absolutely not! If an idea or suggestion is presented that does not ring true with you in hypnosis, you will reject it in your mind — sometimes even removing yourself from hypnosis immediately.
Can I be ‘trapped’ in hypnosis?
No, you can not. If you were conducted into the hypnotic state, and then the hypnotist left you alone, you would eventually just emerge on your own from hypnosis, much the same way we emerge from a nap.
Will I be made to do something foolish in hypnosis?
It’s unlikely that you will find yourself ‘clucking like a chicken’ following a hypnotic session. In cases of stage hypnosis, where the hypnotist has given an entertaining suggestion to audience members, they comply because they are willing, just for the fun of it. If the hypnotist invited people onto the stage to help them feel happier, they’d be unlikely to get another booking for the entertainment value!
Can I be hypnotised against my will?
Absolutely not! All hypnosis is considered to be self-hypnosis, so you cannot be hypnotised unless you wish to be. Hypnosis has nothing to do with magic, metaphysics or religion. It is merely the most graceful, powerful and effective tool for accessing our vast internal capability, in order to easily make the positive changes we want to make in our lives.
Who can be hypnotised?
It’s understood that people who are of average and above intelligence and who haven’t any brain damage may be hypnotised. Those who may have difficulty achieving the hypnotic state include people under the influence of heavy narcotics, people who suffer from some psychotic conditions or those who have sustained some form of physical damage to the brain. As far as is known, the only others who may not be hypnotised are those who do not wish to be hypnotised.
