Can anyone be hypnotised?

Anyone can be hypnotised. Hypnosis is a very natural state of mind that actually everyone has experienced, at least two times a day when we are falling asleep and waking up from sleep. Everyone who is willing to and able to follow instruction can be hypnotised.

However, hypnosis might not be appropriate for a person who has psychotic symptoms such as hallucinations and delusions, or a person who is on medications for psychological stability or using drugs.

 

Who can perform hypnosis / hypnotherapy?

Hypnosis / hypnotherapy should be performed only by a certified mental health professional who is specially trained in this technique.

 

How to choose a good hypnotherapist?

It is highly recommended that you choose a hypnotherapist who is certified and is registered with a recognised Professional Body. You may ask for their references and the code of ethics they adhere to. Talk to them over the phone or have an initial consultation with them and find how you feel. All in all, choose the therapist you feel you can trust and comfortable to work with.

 

How safe is hypnosis?

Hypnosis is totally safe. There has never been any documented case of harm resulting from hypnosis. You are always in control, always be able to come back to your full awareness at anytime if you want to. Hypnosis works with your subconscious mind and the crucial matter of your subconscious mind is to protect you, and it is always on its duty.

 

What does hypnosis feel like?

You will be physically, mentally and emotionally relaxed. Just like when you are drifting into a good sleep. Some people say it feels like daydreaming. It is a very natural healing state for your body and mind.

 

Will I lose control when being hypnotised?

No, you will not. This is a common misconception of hypnosis. You will be aware of everything that happens at all time. If you any time you are in trance and you would like to be fully awake, you can just open your eyes.

 

Will I be mind controlled or be made to do something against my will?

No, you will not. Hypnosis cannot make you do something against your will or morals. No hypnotist can make you do something you don’t want to. It is not mind control or brain washing. It is essential that you want to change and you voluntarily follow the suggestions, then hypnosis will help you to make that change better, faster and permanent.

 

How many sessions will it take?

Every person and every condition is different. Please discuss this with you hypnotherapist during your first consultation. The number of session can be varied and can be adjusted according to your needs and your progress.

 

Is there any evidence showing the effectiveness of hypnotherapy?

Yes. Hypnotherapy is an evidence-based practice. Please click here to find out more about hypnotherapy research.

Hypnotherapy for Stress

Stress is the body’s reaction to threats; no matter they are real or perceived. It is a chemical reaction that allows us to act in a way to prevent injury, known as the stress response or “fight-or-flight”. It is the way we protect ourselves. stress2
