Yes, hypnosis is a safe and natural therapy. Using the power of your own mind, you can change bad habits and behavior patterns without the side effects or expense of medication.
Many people can’t tell the difference between the hypnotized and waking states. Some feel very relaxed and lethargic, others feel a lightness. Most just notice the results, an inexplicable change in their attitude and behavior.
For most people, yes. Hypnosis is not a magic wand, you must have a strong desire to change. It can’t make you do something you don’t really want to do. But, if you’re ready, it can help you achieve a change more easily than you can imagine, often when years of other therapy has failed.
Being in hypnosis is like being in a daydream, like resting comfortably without being asleep. Have you ever heard of anyone getting stuck or not waking from a daydream? Even if a therapist left for some reason, you’d soon return to normal.
You can’t be made to do anything against your will. Stage hypnotism is for entertainment. Participants volunteer knowing they’ll be asked to do silly things. People that aren’t comfortable with that, don’t volunteer. Clinical hypnosis is a serious therapy. The Code of Ethics of the National Guild of Hypnotists will be strictly adhered to.
If there’s something you don’t wish to share, you won’t have to. You’ll have total control over what’s private, and not to be discussed. Hypnosis isn’t a truth serum! Be assured, anything you do say will be absolutely confidential.
No, hypnosis is interactive and requires you to participate and respond during the session. You’ll actually have a heightened sense of awareness. Clients usually remember every detail.
Yes, as long as you’re willing, and capable of following simple instructions.
