Can I Be Hypnotised?
Virtually anyone with a normal IQ can be hypnotised – if they want to be. However, you can’t force someone to be hypnotised against their will.
What’s It like?
Hypnosis is just a very focussed state of consciousness that we experience every day, for example when we're so absorbed in a book or TV programme that we lose track of the world around us. Also known as a trance, it's very pleasant and relaxing, just like having a nice daydream.
How Does It Work?
The real benefit of the state of hypnosis is that it provides access to the subconscious part of our minds. This is important because, as a recent BBC Horizon programme showed, around 75% of what we do is subconscious, including unwanted/unhelpful habits, behaviours and beliefs. Hypnotherapy applies proven, safe techniques during the state of hypnosis to bring about positive, beneficial change
Is It Safe?
Completely. You will never do anything you don’t want to do, or which is against your best interest. You will always come out of trance.
Will It Work?
In most cases, yes.
Hypnosis/hypnotherapy has proved to be highly effective for many people over many years. It is often successful where other more conventional treatments have failed. There have been numerous independent scientific studies carried out which demonstrate its efficacy.
