What Is Hypnosis?
The dictionary says: ‘a state like sleep in which the the subject acts only on external suggestion’
‘Artificially induced sleep’
You and I will be in communication throughout your session – something that would not be possible if you were asleep.
You will be acting on my suggestion but not only on my suggestion – if your nose itches, you can scratch it.
It is a state that is induced.
THE DEFINITION THAT I WORK WITH:
- Hypnosis is a state of subconscious dominance induced by a hypnotist.
- Your subconscious is the fun and creative part of your mind that has unlimited potential – anything is possible
- Your conscious mind is the logical, rational part of your mind that deals with reality and therefore sets the rules in place
- So that the conscious mind does not have to think about everything all the time, we store patterns of behaviour in our subconscious and run them automatically in certain situations. With Hypnosis, we can talk directly with the subconscious and change the patterns with imagination and creativity.
Can You Make Me Cluck Like A Chicken?
Probably, but why would I want to?
I Don’t Like The Idea Of Handing Over Control To Someone Else.
If you are thinking about seeing a hypnotist then you have presumably already lost control of something in your life. Hypnosis is a very effective way of giving you back control. How long will hypnosis for change take? As a hypnotist I am looking for the quickest and easiest solution for your satisfaction – that’s the nature of hypnosis.
Can Everyone Be Hypnotised?
Not everyone can be hypnotised by everyone.
Can I get Stuck In Hypnosis?
No. If you are in hypnosis, you are responding to my suggestions which means when the hypnotist tells you to come out of it you will. If you are not responding to the hypnotist’s suggestions, you are not in hypnosis, you’re most likely asleep and therefore having the most expensive nap you’ve ever had. As my sessions are fully interactive you are very unlikely to fall asleep and if you do I won’t let you sleep for long. I want as much from the session as you do.
