Some people are apprehensive to start with, many are looking forward to it, and lots of people are fascinated in the whole process!
The important thing to remember if you are considering hypnotherapy for the first time is that we all had a first time! We can remember what it’s like to have that first hypnotherapy session, and that’s why we always go out of our way to explain to everyone exactly what it’s going to be like, and to answer as many questions as you may have.
“So, what is it like?”
The thing that surprises people the most, is that you will probably be wide awake the whole time! – We say probably, because after all it is extremely relaxing, and some people do come to us after a hard day at work. (Some people do have a little snore, but it still works for them!)
“Have you ever forgotten to pick the kids up from school because you were engrossed in that afternoon’s TV movie? – it’s a bit like that. (but without the phone call from the headmaster!)”
“What about those stage hypnosis shows – Is it like that?”
No, it’s nothing like that at all. We could go on for ten pages describing the personalities and psychological profiles of the volunteers who are up there on stage… but suffice to say, they are all very carefully chosen! (basically, they’re the ones who’ll do whatever they’re told!)
By far the most common reaction of people at the end of their session is “I’m so relaxed – I wish I could just stay here all day”.
We’d rather answer a hundred questions than let there be something you didn’t understand, so If you’ve got any questions about any of what goes on in the session,
