Who can be hypnotised?

If you are of at least average intelligence, you can be hypnotised! There is no ‘sort’ of person or only a certain type who can benefit. Everyone and anyone can be hypnotised.

What if you can’t bring me out of it?

There is absolutely no danger of a person failing to come out of the hypnotic state. In fact, it would be impossible to remain hypnotised. Even if the hypnotherapist left the office while an individual was in the hypnotic state, there would be no danger. The person would drift off into a natural state of sleep and would awaken after they were rested.

Is there any danger with hypnosis?

No. The only way hypnosis could be dangerous would be if it was used to take away pain. For example, if an individual were to be hypnotically released from the pain of a stomach ache, he would not have the pain to let him know that there is a medical problem. It has been noted after most hypnotic sessions, subjects report that they sleep better at night and are more relaxed during their daily life.

Will I do something against my will?

When you are hypnotised, you are aware of all suggestions given to you, and you will not do anything that you are opposed to doing. You could not be made to do anything under hypnosis any easier than if you were in a conscious state. You are completely in control of your actions and you can come out of hypnosis at any time you choose.

Are weak-minded people easier to hypnotise?

No. In fact, it is usually found that stronger-minded and strong-willed persons who want to be hypnotised achieve excellent results from hypnosis.

Is hypnosis approved by the British Medical Association?

Yes. Hypnosis has been approved by the British Medical Association since 1955.

How safe is hypnotherapy?

Hypnotherapy is completely safe; it is natural and works with the way that the mind naturally operates. It is recognised by the National Health Service. More than just being safe, hypnosis is demonstrably effective at bringing about change, and has been shown to improve the function of the immune system and the digestive system and lead to more restful, recuperative sleep. According to the Health Education Authority: “Research shows that there is more scientific evidence for hypnotherapy than any other complementary therapy.”
