Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is hypnosis?
A: Hypnosis is a state of mind in which your subconscious mind becomes very suggestible.

Q: How does hypnosis work?
A: Hypnosis works easily, safely, and effectively. By moving from the beta brain wave level (your wide-awake state) into either the alpha, theta or delta brain wave level (a more relaxed state of consciousness), properly worded suggestions are easily accepted at a subconscious level. These suggestions then carry over into your daily life.

Q: What does it feel like to be hypnotized?
A: Since most hypnosis (especially when using cassette tapes) is accomplished through a relaxation process, it feels very good. Most people feel very relaxed. You DO NOT feel weird, strange, dizzy, or as if you're in a "trance."

Q: What if I can't be hypnotized?
A: All hypnosis is self-hypnosis, so anyone who has the desire and is willing to follow a few simple instructions CAN achieve a hypnotic state. Best subjects have average to high intelligence. Strong-willed people are excellent subjects. A very low I.Q., lack of desire, and unwillingness to cooperate with the hypnotist's instructions make hypnosis difficult or impossible.

Q: What if I don't go very deep?
A: Depth has nothing to do with the effectiveness of the therapy. Many people actually seem to benefit more from a light to mid-range level of relaxation.

Q: What if I get "stuck" and can't wake-up?
A: You can't get stuck. You can generally bring yourself fully awake whenever you want. A subject who is very deep may drift into sleep and, if no one awakens them, would eventually awaken on their own.

Q: Will I remember what happened during the session?
A: Most people DO remember all or most of the session. Some deep level subjects feel like they've slept and are therefore unaware of what was said, although the subconscious never sleeps and hears it all.

Q: Is it smart to let someone control my mind?
A: A hypnotist CANNOT make you do anything you don't want to do. Your subconscious mind will not accept suggestions in conflict with your desires, morals or beliefs.

Q: Will I tell all my secrets?
A: No. Hypnosis does not cause a compulsion to "tell all" nor is it a truth serum (you CAN lie while under hypnosis). In most sessions there is no need for the subject to talk, but rather relax and listen to the suggestions.

Q: Does hypnosis always work?
A: In various degrees, hypnosis CAN work for everyone because we all have a subconscious mind. Hypnosis is a tool you can use to tap the power within you. For some it works like magic! Others will find that with patience and persistence, their subconscious mind can be coaxed into making the changes they desire.

Q: How many sessions are necessary?
A: Many people only need one session and can use their cassette tape for follow-up. Certain problems may require a series of sessions. If you are using a cassette tape as self-hypnosis without an actual session, you must use it regularly and consistently (often for a specific period of time) in order to see results. The tapes come with written instructions. You are also invited to call our office for details on specific subjects.
