Frequently Asked Questions 

What Does Hypnosis Feels like?
Hypnosis is a very natural state that we all experience every day.  In hypnosis the body is physically relaxed and the breathing is calm and heavy.  You are in a "conscious" sleep state, and completely aware of your surroundings. Some report that their bodies feel heavy, may even feel warm, cool, and even a tingly sensation.  For those who meditate, it is often compared to a meditative state. 
Can everyone be hypnotized?
Yes, since hypnosis is a very natural state that we all experience every day.  The key to being hypnotized is the acceptance and desire of the individual to allow for hypnosis to happen.
In hypnosis, the patient is not under the control of the hypnotist. Hypnosis is not something imposed on people, but something they do for themselves. A hypnotist simply serves as a facilitator to guide them.
Can I lose all control under hypnosis?
No, in hypnosis, you are not under the control of the hypnotist.  You can not do anything or say anything that you do not want to do or say.  Any suggestions that is against your moral or ethical beliefs will be blocked and rejected by your subconscious mind.  Hypnosis is not something imposed on people, but agreeable state that will allow you to shift your perspective in life.
What if I don't come out of hypnosis?
Since hypnosis is a natural state, you may open your eyes at anytime during the hypnotherapy session, and become fully alert. No one can keep you in hypnosis against your will. 
Will I remember everything after the session?
Since you are in a conscious awake state during hypnosis sessions, you do hear all the suggestions given.  However, most people state that they remember either everything or partially of what was said.  This all depends on your experience depending on the depth reached in hypnosis.  You my also remember suggestions given to you in hypnosis through out your day in your conscious, awake state.  These thoughts and suggestions are the very thoughts that are the trigger points to produce the changes you desire.
How many sessions will it take to reach my goal?
The length of Hypnotherapy will be determined by the goal you are trying to achieve,  your active conscious participation, and your desire to change.  Some clients see results in as little as a couple of sessions, while others feel that more sessions may be beneficial.  It is generally recommended that a new client work with a Hypnotherapist for a minimum of 3-6 sessions that are one week apart.
