6 Frequently asked Questions about Hypnosis

What is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis is a great tool for helping people of all ages make change. It's a natural process, where old unwanted behaviours can be removed, new positive behaviours can be adapted and new choices can be made. It provides experiences and solutions that empower people to meet life's challenges. It can really help ‘wipe the slate clean’ and see things with a ‘new perspective, so that anything that has become stale over years for you will no longer be stale, but fresh, like seeing the world with new eyes!

Can you give us some examples?

Hypnosis is a very common occurrence. When your mind and body relaxes and the outside world seems to fade away then that is the hypnotic state, e.g. daydreaming. So it's similar to becoming absorbed in a good movie or good book, or even when taking a long drive and you drive the car on auto-pilot. Hypnosis is a feeling of peace and calm, where you can concentrate and focus and tap into your Subconscious Mind to program yourself ‘automatically’ in many positive ways.

Will I be in control?

Yes. The truth is that all hypnosis is self-hypnosis and it puts you in control - so that you can control your thoughts and emotions rather than them controlling you. It's very empowering and when you leave my office you will leave with some tools and techniques to help you on your way. I cannot make you do something you do not want to do.

Who do you help and what services do you provide?

Consulting hypnotists like myself help regular everyday people with regular everyday issues using hypnotic techniques. You can quit smoking, increase confidence, increase self esteem, eliminate fears, control weight, reduce stress, enhance sports performance, enhance concentration, improve exam performance, control anxiety and panic attacks and much more.

Does it work for everyone?

If you come to my office wanting to make change, follow my instructions and accept my suggestions, then you will leave having made the change you came to see me for. However, if a person comes to my office half hearted, not following instructions and not taking responsibility, then that person will have limited success. But when you think about it, that is the same with anything in life - For example if I wanted to learned how to swim, and I didn't follow the instructors instructions and approached it with the wrong mindset, then I probably wouldn't become a very efficient swimmer....infact I would probably sink. However thankfully most people that come into see me commit to the process and achieve success.

How many sessions does it take?

It depends on the person - no two people are the same it can take longer for some than others, even though everyone gets to the same successful destination. It also depends on what the client has come to see me for - for example my stop smoking program is two sessions, whereas my weight control program is four sessions. In my opinion a session with a Consulting Hypnotist is something that everyone should do periodically. While I definitely recommend members of the general public coming to see a Consulting Hypnotist when dealing with a special specific problem, I also think they should should consult me at other times. Going to see a Consulting Hypnotist should be as normal an activity as getting a physical, having ones teeth cleaned, having a monthly massage or getting periodic chiropractic treatment. Hypnotism is a wellness treatment as well as problem solving treatment.

After the client has achieved his or her goals, there is a benefit in ongoing work with a Consulting Hypnotist to maintain motivation, encourage further progress, and to reinforce the benefits achieved. Just as no one ever says that they've had too many massages, no one can have too many hypnotic sessions either. Everyone needs to relax and stay positive. I can help.

Hypnosis is a safe, effective and life changing experience!
