Frequently asked questions
What is the state of hypnosis?
Hypnosisis is a relaxed, focused state of heightened awareness. Your brain has moved into the Theta brain wave state. You are still aware and in complete control in the Theta brain wave state. In this state, your conscious mind, your thinking, logical, analytical mind has stepped aside and your unconscious mind can now absorb and deeply take in what is being said, without any resistance from the conscious mind. When you are in Theta, if something is said that you do not agree with, you will not take it in, in fact, it may awaken you a little.
What is Hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy is using the state of hypnisis to create lasting, positive change in a persons life. The Hypnotherapist gently guides the client, through relaxation techniques that redirect the mind, and moves them into the deeply focused state of Hypnosis. Metaphors, stories, similes and some direct suggesion are then presented when you are in a state of hypnosis and the subconscious mind can absorbe and utilize them to create deep change in the behavior you are targeting.
How many sessions will it take?
Each client responds to Hypnotherapy differently and there are a lot of factors at play.
How are Hypnosis and Meditation related? How are they different?
When a person is meditating they are in the same brainwave state as Hypnosis, Theta. The difference between Hypnotherapy and Meditation is when a person is working with a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist, they have a specific goal in mind. Everything the hypnotherapist says is aligned with the deep, lasting change they want to create. When a person is meditating the goal is to quiet the mind, to bring the mind to a single focus point, minus all the mental chatter.
