What is hypnosis?
A simple way to explain hypnosis would be “being open to suggestion”. When you think about it, you are either open or rejecting during the day. There is no half way in this case.
So basically you are under hypnosis most of your life. Even now as you are reading, if you accept the information without being critical, it means you are in hypnosis
Hypnosis is another term for meditation, it is either self meditation or guided meditation.
Hypnosis is a normal state we go through during the day. The moments just before you go to sleep or wakeup, when driving long distance or when watching TV are moments of hypnosis. It is a state where you use more your subconscious mind and are more susceptible from suggestion.
The role of a hypnotist is to help you to have access to this state of relaxation and be more open to suggestions.
We are continually subjected to subconscious suggestions in our daily lives.
If you have ever found yourself at the checkout counter not knowing why you put something in the basket this may be the reason.
We are constantly given suggestions by:
- Peer pressure from friends
- Religious leaders
- Newspaper and television -advertising for example tries to persuade us to do things i.e. buy a particular product.
Hypnosis comes from Greek “Hypnos” and was the “God of Sleep”. He was the only one awake at night flying upon the sleeping people. This means that he was totally awake when other was asleep so hypnosis is a state a awareness and not asleep like movies and media present it to us.

Q. Who can be hypnotized?
A. Anyone with reasonable intelligence can be hypnotized. The only ones who may not be able to be hypnotized are people with severe mental disability and children under the age of five, in both cases it’s because they may not understand the words you are saying or be able to follow your instructions. If you are able to read a book and follow simple instructions you are hypnotizable, but only if you want to be. The only requirement is the desire to be hypnotized (or at least allow it to happen) plus an understanding of what they need to do in order to achieve the hypnotic state. The degree, however, varies from person to person. Occasionally a different induction method or a different therapist may be necessary. Most therapy sessions do not require more than a light trance state which everyone can easily achieve with training.
Q. Am I sleeping?
A. Actually, it is just the opposite! You are wide-awake. You are very aware under hypnosis. You are actually in a state of what is called hypersensitivity. All of your senses are enhanced, your sight, hearing, taste, smell, emotions. It is closer to a state of day dreaming or relaxing. You will be focused on the words of the Hypnotherapist and outside sounds will seem to fade away.
Q. Can I get stuck in hypnosis?
A. No, the hypnotic state can be terminated at any time you choose. It is your choice to enter the state and you can always choose to leave it. If you were left in a hypnotic state by your Hypnotherapist or by a hypnotic tape, you would either return to full consciousness on your own or enter a natural sleep and awaken after a short pleasant nap. In any case professional hypnotherapists are trained to awaken clients reluctant to leave the trance state -in their own interests -after all, there may be another client waiting for their session! There is no "trance" or "being under anyone's power". That is merely HOLLYWOOD. There has never been a terminal case of hypnosis in the emergency room.
Q. Will I tell you any deep . . . dark . . . secrets?
A. Not unless you want to. It is not a truth serum! If you have a bag of money hidden in your backyard, the secret will still be safe after your session. In fact, there are many that say that you can even pass a lie detector test under hypnosis.
Q. Is hypnosis dangerous?
A. No, it is no more dangerous than sitting in a recliner, watching television. The only side effect will be that you will be very relaxed afterwards. Every 15 minutes of hypnosis is equal to approximately four hours of sleep.
Q. What is the difference between hypnosis and hypnotherapy?
A. Hypnosis has been around for thousands of years. Hypnotherapy is simply therapy which uses hypnosis as a powerful tool to facilitate change. It is used worldwide.
Q. Are drugs used? Is it safe? Are there any unwanted side effects?
A. No, only the natural power of your own mind is used to relieve symptoms and alter unwanted behavior patterns. Hypnotherapy is non-addictive and safe with no unwanted or unpleasant side effects.
Q. Will I be in control and aware of what is happening?
A. Yes, all the time. You do not go ‘out’, ‘under’ or ‘to sleep’. You are not unconscious. You are in an alternative state of consciousness with a very narrow focus of attention. You can hear everything that is being said. Nothing happens without your consent. You have absolute control. However, you are extremely relaxed. It will feel as if you are just sitting there with your eyes closed, relaxing.
Q. Will I remember what happens during the sessions?
A. Yes, people remember everything they or the therapist said during the session. In rare instances the therapist might need to remind them of one or two points that were talked about in order to trigger off the rest of the memory. It is possible for the hypnotherapist to give a posthypnotic suggestion to forget what was said but this is rarely used in therapy.
Q. Is hypnosis suitable for children?
A. Yes, usually from about the age of six, provided they could understand what is being said, they are intelligent and imaginative. Younger children can benefit from the relaxation. In 1981 self-hypnosis was introduced into the national curriculum in Sweden. For children under the age of six, sleep hypnosis can be conducted with great success. It is also important to realize that children are primarily in the Alpha brainwave state from age 6 -12, Theta state from ages 2 -4 and the Delta state from0 –2, which is already the hypnotic state and are already open to suggestion so a preparatory induction or deepeners are not even needed.
Q. Will the therapist have to touch me?
A. Some therapists will touch you on the wrist, shoulder, neck or forehead to test whether you are properly relaxed or to assist you into a deeper state of hypnosis. They will seek your permission first. Other than this form of contact, a therapist has no business touching you. The vast majority of therapists are ethical, and transgressions are rare.
Q. Isn’t it in some way anti-Christian or the work of the devil?
A. According to the ‘New Catholic Encyclopedia’, the Catholic Church (the largest Christian organization in the world) feels that the ‘hypnotism is licit if used for licit purposes’. Hypnotherapy is just a tool, albeit very powerful, which can help people enlist the power of their own unconscious mind in order to solve their own problems. In many respects the effect is similar to prayer or meditation. The Catholic Church as a proper procedure also accepted it for its members in 1958.Suggestion is probably
used from across pulpit more in Religion that just about any other type of organization other than in sales.
Q. How many sessions will I need?
A. Simple problems like smoking might only require as little as four sessions of approximately 30-40 minutes. More deeply rooted problems may require more sessions. Many Hypnotherapists offer a free initial assessment consultation in which to meet you, assess your problem, determine your needs and the likely number of sessions and agree an affordable fee per session.
Q. Are audio CD's as effective as individual sessions?
A. Normally on tapes as well as in group sessions we can do a session only one specific way. So as a rule, audio CD's and group sessions have a much lower success ratio than that of live sessions since everyone is hypnotized a little different and cannot be tested or individualized when not in person.
Q. Will I do anything against my will?
A. No, you will not do anything that you do not think is acceptable or against your nature. You cannot be ‘made’ to violate your own values or accepted patterns of behavior. You would either reject the suggestion or come out of the hypnosis. You will hear everything that is said. You are in complete control at all times.
