Frequently Asked Questions About Hypnosis Sessions
Frequently asked questions
What is hypnosis?
Hypnosis involves the induction of a calm, relaxed state in which you are highly susceptible to directions or suggestions from a trained hypnotist. Similar to daydreaming, hypnosis allows you to focus on the immediate moment, blocking out other images, sounds, or thoughts. Hypnosis can be used to improve behaviors (e.g. help someone quit smoking) and treat a number of conditions, including stress and anxiety.
How does hypnosis work?
In essence, hypnosis is a means of communication between the conscious and the subconscious mind. Many human problems,habits, stresses, anxieties, and attitudes can be traced to interpretations by the subconscious mind which, when understood by the conscious mind, can reduce or resolve specific problems.
Who can be hypnotized?
Anyone with normal intelligence can be hypnotized. In fact, it is usually found that stronger willed individuals who want to be hypnotized achieve excellent results.
What is a hypnotherapist?
A hypnotherapist does not possess any type of power or gift, but has learned how to give suggestions that the subconscious mind will accept and then act upon in a positive way. Trained hypnotherapists have helped thousands of people solve problems, overcome fears and improve personal skills.
