Q: Can I be hypnotised?
A: Yes – if you want to be! Some clients with trust and control issues may find this more difficult. However, we will work together tobuild a trusting relationship to allow you to relax.

Q: Will I still be in control?
A: Yes – and no I won’t make you cluck like a chicken! People who do strange things during stage hypnosis do so because they want to, and are picked for this exact reason. Hypnotherapy is a natural state of relaxation, where you will remain conscious and in control. You will resist suggestions you don’t agree with or feel uncomfortable about. However, topics of suggestion will be agreed on before we start a session.

Q: Is hypnosis an altered state of consciousness?
A: No, it is usually a state of deep relaxation similar to meditation.

Q: Can I get stuck in hypnosis?
A: No, you will be awakened during a session and would eventually come out of it in other settings. We all experience trance-like states through our everyday life. Have you ever been driving a regular route and not remembered even getting to your destination? Have you ever read the same line in a book over and over and not taken it in? These are examples of hypnosis that are completely natural and happen to everyone.

These are just a few questions you may have. Please feel free to contact me with any others and I will be happy to answer them for you.
