How quickly will I see results?
It depends on the issue(s) and your personal circumstances. Sometimes only one session is enough, but in many cases follow-up sessions are needed. If you are highly motivated and committed to your success, there’s a higher chance of positive results in a short amount of time.
Can I be hypnotized?
Already in the late 1950s, researchers of Stanford University learned through subsequent studies that any person with normal intelligence can be hypnotized. It is important though that you are willing to be hypnotized.
How does it feel to be hypnotized?
Hypnosis feels similar to daydreaming or to the feeling you get right before you fall asleep at night. Most people feel refreshed and revitalized after a hypnosis session.
Will I remain conscious during hypnosis?
Yes. You can hear everything and you are aware of everything going on around you. During the session you remain in complete control and can terminate the session at any point if you choose to do so.
Will I reveal any secrets when hypnotized?
No. Hypnosis is not a lie detector or a truth serum that makes people incapable of lying or keeping secrets. You will not reveal any intimate secrets you would not tell while awake.
How much will I remember of a hypnosis session?
Some people remember everything that was said during the session. Others remember parts of it, and others have difficulties remembering most of it. Since the suggestions are directed to your subconscious mind, how much you remember consciously after the session has no bearing on your success.
Is there a risk of getting stuck in hypnosis?
There is no danger of getting stuck in hypnosis. It is impossible. If you were in a nice deep hypnotic state and for some reason the hypnotist leaves the room, you would become bored and after a few minutes you would either open your eyes, or fall asleep just like you do at night. After you’ve rested enough, you’ll just wake up.
