Hypnotherapy FAQ

Will I lose control or be under the control of the hypnotherapist?

No, all hypnotherapy is self hypnotherapy, the therapist is a guide to help you achieve your goals. We have a built in security feature that will “wake you up” if there was an emergency or you were told to do something you didn’t want to do.

How does it work?

Hypnotherapy is a very complex subject but put simply: As we grow up we make basic rules in our head called “Schema”. These were designed to help make decisions faster and sometimes we can make a rule that at the time worked but now causes problems. Hynpotherapy allows you to adapt these rules and update them to work better for you.

Will I lose the sense of time?

Time moving faster or slower is a common effect seen during a hynotherapy session. There are two theories why; one, you simply are more focussed on something else and so time becomes less important to track or two, our brains can function much faster than our bodies so we can experience more than we normally could in the same amount of time. Either is nothing to be concerned about.
