Do I feel confident with him|her?
  • ​How many sessions will I need?
    It is difficult to predict how many meetings a person will need because each person is unique and many factors come into play to achieve goals, just as with other forms of therapy. However, hypnotherapy is considered a brief therapy; This does not mean that the goals will be achieved in one or two meetings, but that they could be achieved with a few meetings.
  • What is the difference between stage hypnosis shows and hypnotherapy?

  • Is everyone receptive to hypnosis?
    Yes, everyone is receptive to hypnosis. The hypnotic trance is a natural state accessible to everyone as it is a relaxation state.
  • Can hypnotherapy cure me?
    No, hypnotherapy does not cure. The goal is to decrease symptoms and increase your comfort. Hypnosis, like any other form of therapy, requires the client to be engaged in their process.
  • Does hypnotherapy stem from esotericism? I have a hard time believing in hypnosis.
    Hypnosis does not have anything to do with beliefs, religion or esotericism. It is a natural and powerful way to have access to your subconscious mind and to your internal resources. Hypnosis has been used for decades in the medical field. Hypnotherapists do not have any supernatural gifts. However, they have the knowledge to help clients get into the hypnotic trance.
  • Do I stay in control during a hypnosis session?
    Yes, you remain in control under hypnosis, and your thoughts and beliefs stay the same. You will naturally reject hypnotic suggestions or even come out of the trance state if they do not match your values. You will be able to intervene and communicate with your hypnotherapist at any time during the session. It is important to make the distinction that we are not being hypnotized, but rather that we are allowing ourselves to be hypnotized.
  • Do I sleep during the session?
    No not at all, this is another false belief. The person may appear to be sleeping but are in fact enjoying the sensation of calm and deep relaxation. You have access to all your senses during the session.
  • ​Can I remain stuck in a state of hypnosis?
    No not at all, it is another false belief. It is possible to come out of the hypnotic trance at any time. However, most of the time, people want to stay in th hypnotic trance to continue feeling the sensation of well-being, calm, and relaxation it provides.
  • ​Do I remain in a deep trance state throughout the hypnosis session?
    The trance state is not linear, meaning that you can change from a deep to a light trance state during the session, and even do this sequence a few times. Often, most people are surprised to know that they can be asked to participate and speak while they are in a hypnotic trance. The important thing is to know that it is not the depth of the hypnotic trance that is beneficial in creating changes, but rather the trance itself and the caring support of your hypnotherapist.
