~FAQ~

What is hypnosis/ hypnotherapy?

Hypnotherapy uses hypnosis as a tool to facilitate subconscious change in the form of new responses, thoughts, attitudes, behaviors or feelings.

 

Will I lose control while under hypnosis?

 No.  You will always have control. Hypnosis is nothing more than a state of relaxed deep focus. You will never say anything you do not want to say, and you will never do anything you do not want to do.

 

Will I remember what happens while under hypnosis?

Yes.  You will be fully conscious and remember the entire session.  Remember—the benefit of hypnosis is to reflect, reclaim, and renew one’s self.

 

What is the difference between conscious mind vs. subconscious mind?

The conscious mind reasons and judges, analyzes and criticizes, and accepts or rejects.  The subconscious mind is storing information 24/7.  It is like a bio computer--once it is programmed with a certain idea or belief it will operate out of that idea or belief as if it were reality.  The subconscious stores the data for all the experiences we have ever had, every thought, every word that has ever been said to us, and everything we observe by our 5 senses.  It contains our values and our core beliefs about ourselves.

 

How does hypnosis work?

Hypnosis in short, bypasses the “critical factor” of the conscious mind.  The “critical factor” examines, interprets, and filters incoming ideas.  When ideas are similar to those already held, it allows them into the mind, and when they are too different, they are rejected.  During hypnosis the client simply accepts suggestions and/or changes uncritically.
