Hypnotherapy FAQs - The Hypnotic State

1.1  Will I Lose Control?
1.2  Do I Become Unconscious?
1.3  Will I Remember It All?
1.4  What Is Hypnosis?
 
 
 

1.1  Will I Lose Control?

 
 

The common mis-conception, based on seeing hypnotised people being "made" to do bizarre things, is that they are under the hypnotist's control. This is not true.

 
 

Everyone enters into hypnosis voluntarily. No-one can be forced to be hypnotised or do things that they don't want to do.

 
     
 

1.2  Do I Become Unconscious?

 
 

This can vary by degree but in general - no. Most people are fully aware of what is happening but become so relaxed that they can more easily drift into the sub-conscious (not un-conscious) state, where the work of hypnotherapy takes place.

 
 

It's a bit like having the bodily relaxation of sleep, yet being aware of it.

 
     
 

1.3  Will I Remember It All?

 
 

Again, the amount of recollection after hypnosis can vary but this is not something to worry about.

 
 

The memory of the sub-conscious, where the work is done, remembers everything that takes place, but this may not all "cross over" into the everyday waking consciousness in which we conduct our lives, because it is not necessary.

 
  The effectiveness of the hypnotherapy happens at a sub-conscious level.  
     
 

1.4 What Is Hypnosis?

 
 

It is a state of consciousness that can be accessed by the client, helped by the therapist, in order to empower the sub-conscious desire to change some behaviour (smoking, overeating, lack of confidence, etc.) and lose the shackles of the acquired habit or condition, replacing them with something more healthy and beneficial.

2.1  How Effective Is Hypnosis Compared
       To Other Methods?
2.2  What Is The Success Rate?
2.3  What Help Is There After The Sessions?
2.4  Are There Any Side-effects Like Putting
       On Weight?
 
 
  2.1  How Effective Is Hypnosis Compared To Other Methods?  
 

Most people have tried willpower alone or nicotine replacement before hypnosis. But other methods can't tackle the real problem, which is the dilemma between wanting to quit and wanting to carry on.

 
 

Notice that even adverts for patches or gum always say "requires willpower".

 
 

With hypnosis, this contradiction in directions is entirely circumvented. The weaker, subconscious desire to quit, is empowered and the habit is able to be seen in a different light, transforming what has previously been a psychological crutch, as well as being physically addictive, into something new and healthy.

 
 

This transformation is, however, difficult to explain in words because it comes from a normally unknown, powerful part of ourselves, only accessible in this much more relaxed, open and different state which we call hypnosis.

 
     
  2.2  What Is The Success Rate?  
 

I gauge this based on the many people I have seen for quitting smoking. I offer a free back-up session for anyone who, at any time, goes back to smoking and I have only had about half-a-dozen come back so far. Also taking into account some people who have returned to smoking and not contacted me, I still feel confident in saying that about 90% + of clients have successfully quit after hypnosis with me.

 
     
  2.3  What Help Is There After The Sessions?  
 

I give a price-inclusive CD to clients who quit which allows them to self-hypnotise/relax at any time they feel the need and recommend they listen to it once a day for the first two weeks. This is a ten-minute relaxation and can even be listened to when going to sleep at night. Not, however, for use whilst driving!

 
     
  2.4  Are There Any Side-effects Like Putting On Weight?  
 

In a word - no. Because the smoking habit is transformed by being replaced from within the client's sub consciousness, it ceases to be a form of relief behaviour which just "moves sideways", resulting in some other form of self-comforting, e.g. overeating.

 
 

Indeed, beyond that, because the treatment is, in part, a general habit-breaker, the whole world of a client's habitual behaviour can benefit - including overeating!

3.1  How Much To Stop Smoking?
3.2  How Much For Treatment Of Other
       Conditions Like Phobias, Overeating,
       Lack Of Confidence etc. ?
3.3  What If I'm Unemployed Or on A
       Low Income?
 
 
  3.1  How Much To Stop Smoking?  
 

95. This covers two sessions. One to establish the smoking history, including a questionnaire, and to give an introduction into the hypnosis technique, with a gentle, general relaxation. The second session, to follow in a few days, is the quit session proper.

 
 

Also included in the price is a relaxation CD, which can be used after quitting as a daily "top-up" to sustain resolve.

 
     
  3.2  How Much For Treatment Of Other Conditions Like Phobias,
       Overeating, Lack Of Confidence etc. ?
 
  After an initial FREE consultation, a session of approximately one hour is 40.  
     
  3.3  What If I'm Unemployed Or on A Low Income?  
  People with proof of unemployment can expect a discount of 50% on current rates.  
 

People with demonstrably low income (receipt of tax credits for example) can negotiate a %age price reduction.
