Is Hypnosis Dangerous?
Hypnosis is a normal state of mind, one which most people go in and out of every day. When you are engrossed in watching a good movie, listening to music that captures a mood or memory for you, intent on solving a problem or puzzle, you are in a state of hypnosis. Hypnosis focuses your brain, helps it create better solutions and ideas.
When you are in a guided hypnotic trance session, or informal trance, you have an observer self, which is a part of your mind that is always aware and watching out for you. During a hypnosis session you would instantly get up and leave the room if e.g., it caught on fire, even if it had previously felt as if your arms and legs were too heavy to move. In fact, hypnosis sharpens our awareness.
Only 5% of our mind is conscious thought
- 95% is below conscious awareness. We couldn't possibly function if everything we had learned, felt or thought about was at a conscious level all the time - without even mentioning all the bodily functions that are 'supervised' by our unconscious. It's helpful to think of our unconscious simply as all that we are not consciously aware of at a particular time. Hypnosis simply gives us access to our vast unconscious resources.
Can Hypnosis make me say something against my will?
Absolutely not. You will not divulge any information that you would not ordinarily share. You always have a choice: your brain does not stop functioning or reasoning.
Can Hypnosis make me do something against my will?
No. This is a myth associated with hypnosis. Stage hypnotists seem to make people do strange things while hypnotized, but the truth is that these people are doing these things because they have a desire to be outrageous. The stage hypnotists choose their subjects carefully to ensure they have willing participants. You will never accept any suggestion that violates your morals or values. If that were possible, I’m sure hypnotism would be used to rule the world. This, obviously, does not happen.
Is there any danger of not waking up?
In all the centuries of hypnotism being used, it has never happened.
Will I forget what happened ?
Occasionally this happens. Sometimes the hypnotist will suggest that you forget what transpired. However, most hypnotists want you to be aware of the session. Usually you will be aware of everything around you and may remember it better than a conversation because your mind is in such a focused state.
Can anyone be hypnotised?
Yes, in fact hypnotisability is often a learned trait. You can teach your body and mind to go into trance more easily each time as you practice self-hypnosis.
Most people don’t think they are hypnotised after a session. What they do notice is that some things have changed – maybe that day, maybe the next week. Sometimes the effects are subtle, sometimes profound.
What is NLP?
NLP is an incredibly powerful area of studythat enables people to understand the structures of human communication and human excellence. By doing so people can think, communicate and manage themselves, and others, more effectively.
NLP stands for Neuro Linguistic Programming - it explores the relationships between how we think (neuro), how we communicate (linguistic) and our patterns of behaviour and emotion (programmes). It is a study of how we make sense of our experience in the world and how we communicate that to others. And we all do that in our own unique way!
By studying and learning from these relationships we can effectively understand the way we think and act, and change those ways that have passed their use-by date,
NLP also allows us to understand another's excellence and model that in our own activities.
Can you guarantee that hypnotherapy & NLP will work for my particular situation?
I assist many clients to achieve excellent results however there are no guarantees. Much of a client's success depends on their active participation. If you're willing to actively participate, then be prepared to achieve some great results.
