Can Anybody Be Hypnotised?
Theoretically, anyone can be hypnotised. I do not know of any physical reason why a person cannot be hypnotised. However, there may be a number of psychological reasons why a person resists relaxing sufficiently enough to enter a true hypnotic state; most often this is because they have a deep-seated need to always be in control and somehow by allowing themselves to be hypnotised they believe they will give up that control. Hypnosis is only deep relaxation.
Do You Control My Mind Like The TV Show Hypnotist Does?
It is a common misconception that a person's mind can be controlled against their will. People on TV shows are specially selected from the hundreds who apply and then whittled down through a number of tests that enables the Stage Hypnotist to select the most willing, cooperative, extrovert the ones who are willing to follow suggestion and wanting to be the centre of attention, in other words those who are happy to play along.
What a Stage Hypnotist does is not Hypnotherapy!
Isn't All Hypnotherapy The Same?
No, not all hypnotherapy is the same. Although certain forms share similarities, those which rely on suggestion and suppression of symptoms to manage conditions, the same is not true of Curative Hypnotherapy.
Curative Hypnotherapy is distinguished from all other forms of hypnotherapy by its use of logic and the fact that the therapist approaches each client and condition without any preconceived notions other than knowing the subconscious holds all of the information. Curative Hypnotherapy focuses on the 'Why', why a symptom has been created, why the client's experiences, thoughts, feelings adversely affect them and locates, identifies and subsequently corrects the misinformation.
How Many Sessions Will It Take?
Being unique individuals, the cause of our symptoms are unique to us; meaning it is impossible to predict the number of sessions required to dispose of an issue. However, on average 4 sessions are required. Some clients require more, some less.
My aim is to dispose of a client's symptom, once and for all, in as few sessions as possible.
