FAQ: Clinical Hypnosis

What is hypnosis?

It is an altered state of consciousness. It is when your conscious attention is focused within your mind. It is also a state where your inner mind is more open to suggestion.

Can anyone be hypnotized?

Yes… if you trust the process, trust the hypnotist, trust the situation and trust yourself. And you must want to be hypnotized.

What if I can’t be hypnotized?

Everyone can be hypnotized but you won’t be if:

  1. You fear hypnosis or distrust the hypnotist.
  2. You don’t want to be.
  3. You try to be hypnotized.

What if I can’t come out of hypnosis?

You are the one in control over the hypnosis. All hypnosis is self hypnosis. The hypnotist guides you. There is a very thin line between hypnosis and the normal state of consciousness.

What if I’ve never been in hypnosis?

Most people don’t recognize their experience as “under hypnosis” … they may feel relaxed, in a dream-like state, or feel like they are vaguely listening or paying attention to their surroundings… sometimes you may feel like you are making things up. Everyone experiences an altered state of consciousness differently. If you want to know what it feels like…trust the process and trust yourself.

What can I do to help myself to be hypnotized?

Close your eyes. Quiet your body. Settle the mind by focusing on either the hypnotist’s voice, a pleasant background sound, or both. Move deep into the sense something real and extraordinary is happening. (It’s really that simple)

How does it work?

Hypnotherapy uses various techniques of by passing the conscious mind to heal and/or change the previous programming and experiences that are buried in the subconscious mind.

What is a program?

Aprogram is an idea or belief that has been accepted by the subconscious mind.

Why do I feel like I am being “blocked”?

A block can be an old program or belief (in your subconscious) that doesn’t fit you, your lifestyle, or your thinking anymore.

Why do I have to change my old programs?

In order to achieve a goal your conscious and subconscious must work together so you can “keep” the results. (i.e. old patterns or cycles that you have been unable to break or that keep creeping back up: self sabotage may fall into this category.)

What if I don’t know where it comes from?

Consciously, you might not but subconsciously you do. And once you’re in the subconscious mind, you are healing and releasing the origin of the problem or issue.

What if I want to be a better at something or change my body?

We would check for blocks first then use hypnosis to program what you want. You can do anything you believe you can.

How do I get rid of the programs I don’t want?

There are techniques designed specifically to erase and replace your existing blocks and programs. You can choose what you want to believe.

Why use these types of therapies?

If you have an emotional issue or tie to the past whether in this life or the last, it can cause stress and problems in your life now. By utilizing these powerful tools we can bring the healing forward to you today.

How long does it take?

Each session is an hour.

How many sessions does it take?

That completely depends on you.
