3. How does hypnosis feel?
As hypnosis is a natural state of mind, you will not feel anything ‘magical’. However, you will feel very relaxed. It can be likened to being in that nice, carefree, feeling before drifting off to sleep. Or if you enjoy swimming, it can be likened to being underwater in calm crystal clear water and looking up to the surface. You know that life is happening above the water but you are satisfied to enjoy the serenity and calm sensations for a while. Also, there may be a sense of weightlessness/heaviness in your limbs as your muscles relax. Everybody experiences it slightly differently and the therapist will ensure that you relax and enjoy the experience.
4. What can hypnosis be used to treat?

5. What to expect from a hypnotherapy session.
Initially, a detailed case history will be taken and a discussion regarding the goals and hopes for the therapy. The hypnotherapist will then use a variety of techniques in order to enable relaxation and use bespoke language to work with you to achieve your goal. As the hypnotherapist works with your subconscious mind, the change may be subtle. Although there may well be a general positive shift in thoughts, feelings and behaviours after the sessions. Permission may be requested to contact your GP in certain circumstances in order to ensure safe practice.

1. What is hypnosis?
Hypnosis is a natural state of mind experienced every day. When we daydream, when our mind wanders or when we focus on something such as driving, a puzzle or reading, we are in a state of ‘hypnosis’. On a wavelength level, our brain activity shifts from a Beta state to and Alpha/Theta state. A hypnotised individual may not necessarily be in a ‘trance’, more a relaxed, comfortable state which gives the same impression.
2. Do I lose control when I am hypnotised?
You have the power to emerge from any state at any time. You also have the power to resist hypnosis entirely. You maintain control throughout, the hypnotherapist is the guide whom helps you make the journey. Due to the fact that you remain in control, you also maintain the control of whether your therapy is a success or not.
