How many sessions will I need?
Hypnotherapy is like any other form of therapy. It depends on building up a relationship between me and you so that exploration, understanding and healing can occur in an atmosphere of trust and openness. You may have just one or two sessions. Or you may need several sessions so you can get a good understanding of yourself, your issues the change you want to happen. Some people enjoy methods such as self-exploration, dream analysis and hypnotic free association so much that they become regular clients.
Will I be unconscious?
You remain in control throughout a hypnotherapy session. You may be in a state of relaxation but your unconscious mind will only accept those suggestions and ideas that it finds helpful.
Can I get ‘stuck’ in a hypnotic trance?
You can come out of a hypnotic trance any time you like. Remember that you stay in control throughout the trance session. Some clients stay in trance all the way through the hypnosis part of a session and others will spontaneously come out of trance before the end of the session. You will find that you naturally come out of trance soon after I stop talking.
How long before I experience change?
You may experience positive change soon after your hypnotherapy session is over. Or it may take a number of sessions in order for you to become aware that things are beginning to shift or become clear.
Can trance be used to treat my issue?
Hypnotherapy can be a useful way of using trance to help people with a whole range of issues. Part of the initial consultation involves me and you talking over what it is you want us to work on in our sessions and whether or not hypnotherapy is the best way forward for you now.
