Q

A

Is it possible that one hypnotherapy session will cure the problem?

Yes, that is true.

 

It can happen that after one session patient sees great improvement or sometimes a problem is completely corrected or “cured”. This is not something that can be predicted nor can we ever be sure the success a person has achieved will be long-lasting or permanent.

 

My experience is that in 90% of the case I see my clients a maximum of 5 times.

Any hypnotherapist cannot guarantee the outcome of a hypnosis session any more than a doctor can guarantee the outcome of a surgery or his or her ability to make a patient well. Hypnosis is not brain washing or mind control. The hypnotherapist has no power over patient what so ever.

 

The hypnotherapist only has the power, with the patient’s permission and cooperation, to guide him/her into trance and give him/her the necessary suggestions to achieve the desired result. The patient’s mind will either accept the suggestions or it will not.

 

If the suggestions the hypnotherapist has given are sensible, logical, reasonable, and within the patient’s ability to achieve and if his/her mind both likes and accepts the suggestions, then it is reasonable to assume a favourable outcome is in order.

Should the result of the hypnosis sessions be guaranteed?

Q

Q

Do people thanks to hypnosis be able to recall everything that’s ever happened to them?

A

No, they don’t. Certain therapists use certain specific techniques that may help a person remember certain things from the past if that’s going to be useful for them. Normally there is no real need to go back into a personal memory or personal history, particularly on a hypnosis CD or hypnosis download type session. It’s just a case of sitting or laying down, chilling out, relaxing, and listening to the session.

Only if the desired goal is within the person’s physical, mental, spiritual and emotional capabilities.

Are people thanks to hypnosis able to achieve anything suggested to them?

Q

Q

Does being hypnotized show weakness and lack of control?

A

Quite the opposite. When one utilizes the hypnotic state for self-improvement and/or healing they actually gain control over virtually every aspect of their being.

 

Besides, hypnosis is a totally natural mental and physiological phenomenon which happens spontaneously to most everyone on a regular, and usually daily, basis.

No. To never emerge from a hypnotic state is as impossible as never emerging from a daydream.

A

Is it possible to get stuck in hypnosis?

Q

Q

Does hypnosis work like truth serum?

A

No.  A hypnotherapist cannot make anybody do or say anything that is against his/her nature. Patient will never tell a hypnotherapist anything he/she does not really want him to know.

There are many definitions of hypnosis. From our perspective it is: a state when the conscious mind is just “day dreaming’, “let down his guards” so we can access the subconscious mind.

 

There are few more definitions of hypnosis:
Hypnosis is “a special psychological state with certain physiological attributes, resembling sleep only superficially and marked by a functioning of the individual at a level of awareness other than the ordinary conscious state.”[1] According to “state theory”, it is a mental state, while, according to “non-state theory”, it is imaginative role-enactment.


Wikipedia

Hypnosis, also referred to as hypnotherapy or hypnotic suggestion, is a trance-like state in which you have heightened focus and concentration. Hypnosis is usually done with the help of a therapist using verbal repetition and mental images. When you’re under hypnosis, you usually feel calm and relaxed, and are more open to suggestions.

What exactly is hypnosis? While definitions can vary, the American Psychological Association describes hypnosis as a cooperative interaction in which the participant responds to the suggestions of the hypnotist. While hypnosis has become well-known thanks to popular acts where people are prompted to performs unusual or ridiculous actions, the technique has also been clinically proven to provide medical and therapeutic benefits, most notably in the reduction of pain and anxiety.

Q

What the hypnosis is?

A

Q

Is it possible to lie in hypnosis?

A

Yes, it is possible to lie while hypnotized. People know what they are doing when they are hypnotized. They are also aware of what hypnotherapist is saying.

 

Actually, if patient is given to telling untruths he/she may find even better at it while in a hypnotic state. The hypnotic state allows patient to better access his/her “creative genius” thereby enabling him/her to fabricate and/or embellish any story more fully and colourfully than when in a waking state.

There are three requirements necessary for hypnosis to occur: a minimal level of intelligence, an ability to follow simple instructions, and a willingness to be hypnotised. No one can make patient do anything against his/her will. If they could, the world would be run by power crazed hypnotherapists who would hardly have a need to maintain private practices working with smoking cessation and weight loss.

 

Each and every person who wishes to be hypnotised can be hypnotised under the right conditions. It is a fallacy that strong minded people cannot be hypnotised. In fact, strong minded people often have some of the greatest success.

Q

Who can be hypnotised?

A

Q

Who cannot be hypnotised?

A

People under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol.

 

People who don’t want to be hypnotized.

 

People who think they want to be hypnotized but unconsciously resist being hypnotized.

 

Some medications can interfere with inducing a trance state.

 

Some medical conditions can interfere with inducing a trance state.

 

Several reasons why people may unconsciously resist being hypnotized are:

They are afraid; they do not have a full understanding of the hypnotic process.

 

They are uncomfortable with the hypnotherapist.

 

They are uncomfortable with their surroundings.

 

They have been sent to a hypnotherapist to achieve an outcome they do not really want, as in the example of the smoker given above.

 

Mentally challenged individuals

People experiencing a hypnotic state are not asleep nor are they unconscious, in a coma or just floating around somewhere “out there” in the ozone. A hypnotized person is fully awake and aware of what is going on around them and they are supposed to be!

 

With few exceptions, the subconscious mind does not hear suggestions that are given to it while in the sleep state. Therefore a hypnotherapist may as well “talk to a wall” for all the good it does to talk to a sleeping person.

 

Do hypnotized people sleep in hypnosis?

A

Q

Q

Will the hypnotherapist have a full control over patient?

A

No. He will not. Hypnotized people are not asleep or unconscious while in a hypnotic state. Therefore their conscious mind is awake and aware and able to monitor its surroundings and what is being said to it.

 

If something is “suggested” to them while in a hypnotic state that they do not like or which goes against their values then one of two things will happen. Their mind will either dismiss the suggestion the hypnotherapist has given or they will open their eyes and come out of the trance.

 

“All hypnosis is self-hypnosis” and people are fully awake and aware while in a hypnotic trance. The person in a hypnotic trance is always in control, just as someone who is daydreaming can decide to go on or stop at any time.

No, they don’t. They are likely to remember quite a bit of it. Perhaps they will not remember every word that was spoken but they will remember a lot, especially the first time or two that they are hypnotized. Hypnotized people do not completely lose touch with reality.

 

They are fully aware of what is being said and done while in a hypnotic trance.

Do people forget everything of what was said or done while they were hypnotized?

Q

Q

Is hypnosis dangerous?

A

No. If it was the case than most of people would be doomed to the possibility of death or injury almost daily. A daydream is a hypnotic state as is highway hypnosis.

No, they don’t. This belief is born in Hollywood movies world. This is understandable as there’s a deep mystery surrounding hypnosis. The truth is hypnotists don’t have any special powers. They just have knowledge and experience of humans.

Is it the truth that the hypnotists have a special power over their patients?
