1 – Can I be hypnotised?
Yes you can! It’s easy to go into hypnosis because it’s a normal state of mind that everyone has already experienced. In fact, hypnosis is such a natural state, most people usually don’t even realise that they are hypnotized. You see, hypnosis occurs every day–when you’re driving down the road and lose track of time, for example, or when you’re focusing on a book or television programme and you don’t even notice something that’s going on around you.
When you come in for hypnotherapy, all you need to do is to be able to follow the instructions of the hypnotherapist and you can put the power of hypnosis to work for you.
Hypnotherapy requires your commitment, your desire to be successful.
2- What does hypnosis feel like?
Put quite simply, hypnosis is a state of focus that you allow yourself to enter. It’s very similar to that ‘miles away’ feeling you probably find yourself in from time to time when you let your mind wander.
3 – Can I get stuck in hypnosis or will I lose control?
No. This has never happened in the entire history of hypnosis. Even if the hypnotherapist just disappeared, you would simply emerge from hypnosis feeling absolutely fine.
In fact, hypnotherapy can help you gain control–of moods, emotions, respiration, heartbeat, blood pressure etc. You remain in control the whole time, and only integrate those suggestions that are useful and appropriate for you.
4 – How many sessions will I need?
In most cases, somewhere between 1 and 6 sessions are all that’s required, but this does depend on the individual and the issue being treated. Simple phobias , for example, most often respond to a minimum of sessions, while more complex, long-standing and multi-faceted issues (e.g. depression that has lasted for years) obviously require longer.
4 – How much does a session cost?
In most cases it is £80 per session with a 3 session programme being discounted to £220.

5 – How long does a session last?
Sessions can last anywhere between 60 and 75 minutes. The first session is usually longest.
