Frequently Asked Questions about Hypnotherapy

How does Hypnotherapy work?

After an initial telephone conversation, which includes an introduction and the scheduling of appointments, the first session will take place. During the first session, we will complete a medical history form and an open-ended questionnaire together. The first session usually lasts 2-3 hours.Results may be seen after a single therapy session, however multiple sessions may be needed depending on your individual circumstances.Subsequent sessions usually last between 1-1.5 hours.Individual wishes can only be achieved if you are willing to actively cooperate.

During the state of hypnosis, will I do things that I normally would not do?

No, not at any point! Since you will be in a state of trance and your senses will be heightened, you will not do anything that you normally would not do.

Will I answer questions that I do not want to answer?

No, you will remain in control during hypnosis.

Is it possible to remain stuck in a hypnotic state?

No, it is not possible.If something unexpected happens such as your therapist falling unconscious or a fire alarm going off, you would wake up and react independently.

Can anyone be hypnotized?
