The Oxford English Dictionary describes hypnosis as and I quote: “The induction of a state of consciousness in which a person apparently loses the power of voluntary action and is highly responsive to suggestion or direction.”
The word hypnosis comes from the Greek hypnos meaning ‘sleep’. When you are in hypnosis you are not in a deep sleep you are just in an altered state of consciousness.
The way I describe hypnosis to my clients is by asking them to remember what it feels like when the alarm clock wakes them up in the morning and they know it is time to get up but they still want to continue in the dream state. They are able to hear everything that is going on around them, but at the same time they are still seeing and experiencing the dream they were in as the alarm sounded. This is the Theta state, the brainwave we utilise for hypnosis.
F.A.Q for Hypnosis
Will I loose control when I am in hypnosis?
No, all hypnosis is self hypnosis so you can never be made to do or say anything you are not 100% happy with. You can open your eyes and wake yourself up at any time. You never have to accept any suggestion that goes against your moral & ethical beliefs.
Is Hypnosis dangerous?
No documented case has ever been reported of harm coming to anyone during therapeutic hypnosis.
What will happen if the hypnotherapist drops dead when I am in hypnosis?
Nothing, you will either just wake up or simply fall asleep and wake up in your own time.
What will happen if I can’t be hypnotised?
Most people find hypnosis really easy because it is a state they are actually very used to. They just may not be aware that the theta brainwave is hypnosis. All that is needed is a willingness to cooperate with the hypnotherapist since all hypnosis is actually self hypnosis. Some of the few people who can’t be hypnotised are individuals with psychotic disorders, takers of certain heavy medications and sometimes those of a below average intelligence. Hypnosis is all about listening, concentrating and going with whatever comes into your mind.
What if I chose to do Past Life Regression and this is my first lifetime?
I have done thousands of Past Life Regressions over the years and I have never worked with someone for whom this was their first life.
Will I remember what happens when I am in hypnosis?
It is the responsibility of the hypnotherapist to tell you that you will remember everything about the hypnosis session or you will be probably feel so relaxed when you wake up that you will only have a vague recollection of your experience. I work a lot with past Life Regression so I feel that it is important to instruct each and every one of my clients to remember every second of everything they saw, sensed or felt during the therapy. This way the whole session remains clear in the person’s mind.
Is it true that the more I experience hypnosis the easier I will find it?
Yes, also if you regularly practice meditation you will find hypnosis easy and natural for you.
What is the subconscious mind?
The subconscious mind is the part of you that governs all the automatic things you do. It also directs the way you unconsciously behave by tapping into all your emotional desires, belief systems and habits that you acquired when you were young and unable to make informed decisions by yourself.
Hypnosis – How I work
I use hypnosis for the majority of my treatments, I believe it is a remarkable therapy providing consistent results in my clients. I specialise in both this life and Past Life Regression as these particular therapies allow the client to acquire a quick and deep understanding of why they are suffering from a particular habit or phobia. Using hypnosis it is easy to understand why an individual has the need to find comfort in food or addictions. Or why they are so angry about something that is happening to them now but that actually has its roots back in a past life. The other beauty of hypnosis is that other complementary therapies can easily be used in conjunction with hypnotherapy. I use hypnosis and Past life Regression either on their own or with, Spirit Release, Releasing Negative Oaths and Vows, NLP, ThetaHealing™, Soul Retrieval, Inner child work, EmoTrance and even combining EFT.
When you book your appointment you may request the use of a specific therapy, or you may prefer a combination of different healing methods to help you to resolve whatever is causing your physical or emotional pain.
Most of my therapy sessions last 90 minutes in London Harley Street. I am also happy to work with clients on the telephone.
