Myths vs Facts
What is Hypnotherapy? -From the Wellness Institute
FAQ with HYPNOSIS
Will I know and remember what has happened?
You will always be able to hear my voice. You will always know that you are in the room. You will always be able to wake yourself up if you want to. You will not be unconscious. You will remember and you will be able to speak! We are only travelling to the subconscious.
What if I can’t be hypnotized?
Everyone can be hypnotized. Hypnosis is a natural state of mind. People who have an “issue” about not being able to accomplish things, may respond to hypnosis in the same way. If you would like to work that “issue” out we can totally take our time titrating into a meditative state together until you feel most comfortable.
I don’t want anyone controlling my mind, is this mind control?
Hypnosis will enable you to control your own mind better. You will be able to recognize attempts of control by ‘hypnotic suggestions’ such as through tv advertisements. Hypnosis will help you better understand how to reject suggestions!! It’s ignorance that allows other people to be able to control our minds. It’s lack of assertiveness.
Hypnotherapy empowers a person. We validate the fact that all the ‘answers’ are within us. We teach self-hypnosis and assist the client to discover his or her own inner resources. The client is ALWAYS in charge of their process.
The client can always reject a suggestion. Also, the client can always tell the therapist what types of suggestions they would like to hear.
What if I can’t come out of it?
There has never been a documented case of anyone being unable to come out of hypnosis.
80% of the day you are going in and out of the subconscious mind
Some borderline clients may attempt to remain in trance. If you are diagnosed borderline or think you may have it, please let that be known right away if you are ever considering hypnotherapy.
Are you going to make me cluck like a chicken?
This is not stage show hypnotism. I would never do anything that is against anyone’s moral values. This is for therapy, not for shaming anyone.
If I open my mind to hypnosis, will the devil get in?
Hypnosis is the same state of mind as the state of prayer or meditation. It’s a natural state. If you have a God or a spiritual guide or connection, we can call upon them to protect and oversee our work together. The power of our own spiritual connections are greater than any “devil” or evil force.
The Law of Concentration says, “Whatever you focus upon increases in power.” So, why focus on the devil? “The devil is the same as negativity.” You can focus on love and light, or fear and darkness. You always have a choice when you learn to use the full 100% of your mind!
What if I discover things that I don’t want to know?
You can liken this to tooth decay. This is to help release what has been controlling the mind, holding people back in their lives. If the decay remains, you never know when it will pop up and cause you pain. Once you have addressed it and released it, then you are empowered and there is nothing to fear. It may come back or always be susceptible to pain, but now you will have a greater inner strength. Also!! We ALL have a built-in self regulating mechanism to keep us safe. Your mind will NOT present you information until you are ready to handle it.
I am intrigued, can we talk about it further?
If you are interested in booking an initial meeting to discuss if this is the right therapy for you please fill out this form and I will respond to you ASAP. If you are interested in this process I will not be able to dive into a session until we have met or spoken several times beforehand so that you can fully understand the process and you are 100% comfortable moving forward. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScVFbT2hhvIXewUi6QIo65kQ-wpH_5v6txnoKNSluoR6l0DbQ/viewform?usp=sf_link
