- How it works
What is hypnosis?
Hypnosis is a state of relaxation and concentration at one with
a state of heightened awareness induced by suggestion. It is a
non-addictive power for the good and is a natural manifestation
of the mind at work. The word hypnosis is derived from the Greek
word 'hypnos' meaning 'to sleep', but is actually far from being
asleep. By the time the early users of hypnosis realised this
and tried to change the name it had already become fashionable.
Are there any people that can't be hypnotised?
No, except sometimes individuals with learning difficulties, although
of course the degree varies from person to person. The only other
exceptions would if someone was 'high' on the effects of alcohol
or drugs. Basically the more imaginative and intelligent you are,
the more successful it is. All hypnosis is self-hypnosis;
the professional therapist guides you with a personal, focused
programme tailored to meet your individual requirements.
Are any drugs or tablets used?
Will I remember what has happened?
Yes. Most people are surprised to find that they remember most
of what happens during the therapy. It is a state of heightened,
not diminished awareness. However you may well be surprised how
quickly the time goes when you are deeply relaxed.
So I'm not asleep then?
No, simply very relaxed and positively focused.
Are there any causes for concern?
None whatsoever. Hypnosis is a proven therapeutic aid. The only
time hypnosis could prove dangerous is whilst driving or using
machinery. You should not listen to a hypnotic CD ever under those
Can I speak whilst in hypnosis?
Yes and in some cases you will be encouraged to do so.
How many visits will I need?
Simple problems, such as smoking, nail biting, slimming usually
entail 3-5 sessions and the success rate is very high. The more
deep-rooted nervous disorders such as phobias and panic attacks
can require more extended therapy to gain the permanent success
you desire but this is not always the case. This will be discussed
on your first visit.
Can I be influenced to do anything against
No, and in fact you would naturally come out of the hypnotic state
should such a thing happen. All NRHP therapists undergo strict
background checks and adhere to a professionally regulated code
Can 'normal' people be hypnotised?
Absolutely but Clinical Hypnotherapy is nothing to do with stage
hypnosis which is solely for entertainment. Properly qualified
hypnotherapists do not engage in hypnosis for entertainment. Provided
you want hypnosis to take place, expect it to take place and perhaps
most importantly, allow it to take place, it will take place for
you. In fact the more intelligent and imaginative you are the
easier it is to gain the full benefits of clinical hypnotherapy
Hypnotherapy is a wonderful tool to help you
take back control of your life and to help you achieve your personal
goals and dreams.
