Can I really stop smoking/lose weight etc?
Yes you can stop smoking, lose weight. If you really want to. The need to change an unwanted behaviour must come from the individual themselves otherwise the therapy will not work.
Are you sure you can put me “under”?
I don’t put anyone “under” anything! Your willingness to participate is all that is required. I am the facilitator or guide and I will teach you how to hypnotize yourself. All hypnosis is self hypnosis.
Won’t I be under your control?
No. You will not do or say anything that you wouldn’t normally say or do. In fact, you would be shocked out of hypnosis. You are fully aware at all times.
….but I’ve seen stage shows?
What I do is not a show. Shows rely on participants who want to enter into the “fun” by doing silly things on stage. In fact, my association will not allow a stage hypnotist to become a member because it is against our ethics to use hypnosis to belittle or use people for fun.
Can I get “stuck” in hypnosis?
No. You will always be brought back to full awareness although it is so relaxing you may feel like you want to stay in hypnosis!
