What is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis is a pleasant, natural feeling of deep relaxation with a state of heightened awareness.


Will I be asleep?

No, you will be fully aware at all times during hypnosis even though you will have your eyes closed. If you wanted to at any time during the treatment you could get up and leave.


Shall I be aware of what is happening at all times during therapy?

Yes. Hypnosis is just a feeling of deep relaxation so you will always be aware of what is happening. Hypnotherapy does not involve being asleep, or being “put under” as many people expect.


Can I be made to do anything embarrassing or against my will?

No, hypnosis only continues with your co-operation. You are in complete control over what you do and say. Hypnotherapy has nothing to do with stage hypnosis as used in entertainment.


Is the therapy confidential?

Yes, I work under the strict guidelines of the General Hypnotherapy Register (GHR) and the Complimentary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC), whose members are bound by a strict code of practice and ethics of the highest standard.


Is it a good idea to see my doctor before visiting you?

If you suspect that there is a physical cause for a problem then your doctor should be consulted.
