What if I can’t be hypnotised?

All hypnosis is self-hypnosis so anyone with the desire, ability to focus their attention, and willingness to follow acceptable suggestions can quickly enter hypnosis.

What can hypnotherapy do for me?

Hypnotherapists use exercises that bring about deep relaxation and an altered state of consciousness, also known as a trance. A person in a deeply focused state is unusually responsive to an idea or image, but this does not mean that a hypnotherapist can control the person’s mind and free will. On the contrary, hypnosis can actually teach people how to master their own states of awareness. By doing so they can affect their own bodily functions and psychological responses.

Is it true that only weak minded and gullible people can be hypnotised?

The opposite is true. The higher the IQ and the greater imagination and concentration abilities a person has, the easier and deeper the person can go into hypnosis. Remember, the ability to focus “selective attention” is necessary.

What if I don’t go very deep?

Usually the light stage of depth for is all that’s needed. However, after a few sessions your confidence grows, you will find yourself at a much greater depth quicker each time.

Will I tell secrets when I’m in hypnosis?

During hypnosis you have greater powers of selectivity than when the conscious mind is not distracted. Your secrets are safe.

Will I lose control in hypnosis?

People in hypnosis got there because they were able to control their thoughts, breathing and feelings to the extent that they can experience and benefit from this state. For guidance and suggestions to work, enhanced control is required, not less.

What if I don’t wake up?

Getting stuck in hypnosis doesn’t happen. It is very true that some people enjoy this complete state of mental relaxation to the point that they would rather stay in hypnosis for a while longer than come back to a more stressful conscious situation. But they all come back when they are ready. Remember hypnosis engages some parts of the brain that are not active during natural sleep. You will have to come out of hypnosis first before you can drift into natural sleep.

Will I remember what happened?

That depends on how deeply you go into hypnosis and whether or not you’re instructed to remember or not remember by the hypnotherapist. In the light stage, people remember most of what happened to the extent their memory allows. In the medium to very deep stages not remembering (amnesia) some portions or all of the session is an anticipated normal characteristic of those depths. Not to worry, the work is being done at the subconscious level.

I enjoy your meditations, but at times when I meditate I begin to spin and get dizzy. Can you explain this?

If you become very deeply relaxed during meditation, the body has a chance to “unwind” and release tension. There can be shifts in subtle energies in the body as it moves toward greater balance. You may feel all sorts of things as this is happening, including a sense of spinning or dizziness. If this is happening, be sure to take plenty of time coming out of meditation. If the spinning feels too strong in meditation, you can open your eyes and this should stop the process.

I’m wondering if you would suggest specific types of meditation for some one who has is suffering from stress.

Any meditation that you find relaxing should help. The key is to meditate regularly. If you do that, it helps your mind and physiology to develop a new habit, a more relaxed way of being. Try using the Breath Awareness meditation for a while and once you get accustomed to the process, you’ll be able to use that anytime on your own when you need to during the day. You can even stop to do this for a minute or two to create a more relaxed state.

I’m wondering if there is a particular time of day that most people choose (find more effective) to meditate. I’ve been doing it right when I wake up a few times a week, not for any other reason than because it’s convenient. Let me know your thoughts.

Meditating first thing in the morning is a nice way to start the day from a more relaxed, centered place. It’s also really useful to take a break later in the day to relax and “re-set” yourself. Often people do that after work to relax for the evening. Taking a break anytime for a brief meditation

What is Acceptance and Commitment Therapy?

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) gets it name from one of its core messages: accept what is out of your personal control, and commit to action that improves and enriches your life.

The aim of ACT is to maximise human potential for a rich, full and meaningful life. ACT (which is pronounced as the word ‘act’, not as the initials) does this by:

a) teaching you psychological skills to deal with your painful thoughts and feelings effectively – in such a way that they have much less impact and influence over you (these are known as mindfulness skills).

b) helping you to clarify what is truly important and meaningful to you – i.e your values – then use that knowledge to guide, inspire and motivate you to change your life for the better.
