Below is a hypnosis guide with frequently asked questions about hypnotherapy and hypnosis. Feel free to contact me if you still have questions.

What is hypnosis?

Hypnosis is a state of relaxation and focused concentration. It’s the state similar to daydreaming, or the one you enter every time you watch a movie or your favorite TV show. In this state, the individual is more open to suggestion and can be guided to make changes in their thinking or behavior. Read more here.

How fast will I see results?

It depends on the issue(s) and your personal circumstances. Sometimes only one session is enough, but in many cases you will need more than one session. 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 everyone go into hypnosis?

Already in the late 1950s, researchers of Stanford University learned through subsequent studies that any person with normal intelligence can go into hypnosis. It is important though that you are willing to go into that altered state. Hypnosis is very similar to meditation. It is the same altered state.

How does it feel to be in hypnosis?

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. If you are familiar with meditation, you will find that it feels very similar to that state of awareness.

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. The hypnotherapist has no control over you.

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. It is impossible to get stuck in hypnosis just like you cannot get stuck in meditation.
