If I had £1 for each time a client had asked me this question I’d be a very rich lady! The simple answer is no.
There are many myths and misconceptions surrounding hypnotherapy and many people who fear being ‘out of control’ during a session but it’s simply not true.
Hypnosis is a natural ‘state’ which we all dip in and out of throughout the day. Have you ever arrived at your destination only to realise you don’t remember driving round ‘that roundabout’? Or, spent some time day dreaming about that luxury holiday? If the answer is yes, then you’ve already experienced the hypnotic ‘state’.
Hypnosis is simply deep relaxation. The conscious mind is quiet and the sub-conscious mind takes over – helping to keep you safe while driving round ‘that roundabout’ and creating the images you see in your mind while day dreaming about your luxury holiday. Most clients report feeling more relaxed than they’ve been in a very long time and all of them enjoy the experience.
Hypnosis, together with Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) is a fast, effective way of dealing with issues such as stress, anxiety and depression. The sub-conscious mind has the power to help you free yourself from negativity and move towards a life you feel in control of.
So no, you won’t be clucking like a chicken (unless that’s what you really want to do), you’ll be calm, relaxed and in control at all times. We’ll work together to get you where you want to be.
