What is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis is a relaxing state. Suggestions are made with the aim of allowing your subconscious to become receptive to consciously desired changes such as losing weight, reducing anxieties, or quitting smoking.

We often have to fight ourselves to make positive changes.  We aim to make the changes easier with hypnosis. 

Hypnosis Myths

There are many myths about hypnosis. It is important to dispel these myths before any hypnotherapy takes place.  It is essential to note the following points.

  • You cannot be controlled nor made to do anything against your will in a state of hypnosis.
  • You have to be in agreement and receptive to the suggested changes otherwise you’re unlikely to respond.
  • Conscious motivation is important
  • Most clients at the end of the sessions say the process is deeply relaxing and stress reducing in it of itself.

Appointment FAQ

What happens if I can’t be hypnotised?

According to studies, 90% of people can be hypnotised to some degree. When someone ‘can’t’ be hypnotised, it’s generally due to unnecessary fear. The most important thing to realise is that in a therapeutic context, clients can’t be made to do anything they do not wish to do. You are always in control.


What happens if the ‘hypnosis doesn’t work’?

Hypnosis is not a magical pill. But it can be a powerful method for resolving inner conflicts that promote unwanted habits. If the issues you come to see me about aren’t addressed in our hypnotherapy sessions, it generally comes down to one of two reasons:

1) Stress levels are just too high. For example: It’s very hard to quit smoking when you’ve just broken up with your partner (a time of huge stress!). 

2) You’re not motivated. 


If you come to see me to curb alcohol consumption, you should expect that other behaviours might have to change. You might have to avoid ‘work drinks’ for example.

How many sessions do I need?

I see most clients for an average of three sessions. I do have clients that see me more often.


Should everyone be hypnotised?

No. Not everyone should be hypnotised. If you suffer from schizophrenia or psychosis, you will probably need a referral from your GP.

If there’s ever any doubt about hypnosis, you must see your GP or qualified health professional before seeing me.
