What is a hypnosis session like?
The hypnotherapist will then proceed to help your mind and body relax deeply. Soon, your body will begin to feel very light in that soft, comfortable chair you are lying in. However, you retain total awareness of every word he/she is saying. You will be able to describe feelings, thoughts and events from the past, present and even the future.
These feelings will be very real to you, and free of any influence from the analytical, conscious mind. Now that the subconscious is fully accessible, the suggestions and techniques provided by the hypnotist will assist you in eliminating old, unwanted beliefs and behaviors, while replacing them with powerful, self-affirming approaches to your life.
Who can be hypnotized?
Do I need to be in a deep hypnotic state in order for it to work?
Does entering the hypnotic state indicate your mind is weak?
Will my mind be damaged or injured in any way?
Will I lose control of my willpower, or reveal long-held secrets?
The core tenets which you hold in life, ie beliefs which you fundamentally would not be willing to change, are stored in your subconscious. While in session, you are fully aware of, and participating in all dialogue between yourself and the hypnotist. You always have full power to make decisions consistent with these beliefs, which may include not divulging confidential information.
How are you different from a stage hypnotist who asks people to bark like a dog?
Will I be sound asleep?
