Frequently Asked Questions
Hypnotherapy is a concept widely heard by people, some even may associate it to a trick for entertainment purposes. But what is quite ignored is the healing effects that can be achieved through hypnosis. So we can say that Hypnotherapy is the practice of hypnosis for therapeutic purposes.
There is a spectrum of responsiveness in people ranging from “low” hypnotizability to “high” hypnotizability. Remember that hypnosis is a deep state of focused attention and inner absorption. If you’ve ever lost track of time doing an activity you enjoyed, you were in a hypnotic state.
It should be said, though, that if a person does not want to be hypnotized, they can’t be. It’s not something that can be forced upon another person.
Although a very small percentage of people report feeling ‘groggy’ after a session, the majority of people report feeling invigorated, energetic, relaxed and happy. Hypnosis is a totally natural state; it is safe, effective and has no side effects.
The subconscious mind is where we store everything that has ever happened in our lives. Therefore, it is much more efficient to do therapy while in the subconscious state, using hypnotherapy to access those moments that have impacted us. This results in greater awareness around one’s issues. With this awareness comes the ability to recognize the cause of behaviors that you desire to change.
