COMMON QUESTIONS

What does hypnosis feel like?

Many describe the hypnotic state as a complete and total escape from physical tension and emotional stress, while remaining completely alert. You are always completely aware of everything that is going on. In fact, you may experience a hyper-awareness where visuals and sensations are enhanced. Deep relaxation and better sleep are immediate benefits, after the very first session.

What if I can’t be hypnotized?

Everyone has the ability to be hypnotized by a trained hypnotherapist. Don’t worry if you’ve tried in the past and didn’t feel you were hypnotized. Hypnosis is a tool and it’s not for everyone, but if you have an open mind and are open to the process, I can work with you. You can still be having thoughts and wonder if it’s working, and it is.

Will I be made to do something weird like cluck like a chicken?

This is a question people ask all the time, because their only experience with hypnosis was for entertainment, seeing a stage hypnosis show or a movie like “Get Out.” Therapeutic hypnosis is used for goal achievement and relaxation.

Can I get stuck in hypnosis?

No, it’s a natural state like meditation or waking up from a daydream. You’ll be aware of everything the whole time and could always open your eyes or respond whenever you want to.
