Frequently asked Questions (FAQ’s)


Can anybody be hypnotised? Yes, but only if they want to be. A hypnotherapist would not treat anybody they believed to be severely mentally ill, or under the influence of drink or drugs.

How will I feel? Some people say they feel very light as if they were floating, others feel very heavy but most people agree it’s a pleasant sensation of extreme relaxation.

Are there any side effects? Only good ones! You will feel relaxed, energised, and positive about the reason you sought hypnotherapy. It is totally natural.

Will I be asleep? You will be aware of everything that is happening and being said. However, because you are so deeply relaxed you may find yourself drifting into different levels of awareness. Your subconscious mind will be active throughout and it is this that your therapist is working with.

Will I give any secrets away? No. You won’t say or do anything you don’t want to . If you were given suggestions that you didn’t agree with you would come out of hypnosis. You will hear everything that is going on and nothing will happen without your consent. Your therapist is there to provide a safe and supportive environment for you so you can relax and benefit from the changes hypnotherapy can bring to your life.

I tried hypnotherapy before and it didn’t work. Does this mean I can’t be hypnotised? The usual reason hypnotherapy fails is because of a lack of rapport between the client and the therapist. It is important that you feel really comfortable and trust your therapist. You will then feel relaxed and enter into hypnosis.
