ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS

 

*

CAN I BE HYPNOTIZED?
Yes. Every person of normal or above normal intelligence has the ability to be hypnotized
 
WHILE HYPNOTIZED, WILL I DO ANYTHING I DON'T WANT TO DO?
No. This is one of the most common misconceptions about hypnosis. While hypnotized, you will not do anything that is against your moral or ethical beliefs. If someone hypnotized you and told you to load a gun and rob a bank, you would reject the suggestion and refuse to take that action(unless of course you are a bank robber).
 
WILL I SAY ANYTHING I WANT TO KEEP PRIVATE?
Many people have the misunderstanding that, while hypnotized, they will blurt out their deepest, darkest secrets. This will not happen. If you have thoughts, ideas, or information you wish to keep private, you will keep them private.
 
WILL I REMEMBER ANYTHING THAT IS SAID WHILE HYPNOTIZED?
Most people remember everything from a session. Some people are capable of very deep levels of hypnosis and may not remember every detail of a session. If you are concerned, ask you hypnotherapist to give you the suggestion to remember everything from the session.
 
WILL SOME AWFUL, HIDDEN PERSONALITY EMERGE FROM ME WHILE I'M HYPNOTIZED?
Thanks to Hollywood, this Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde fear is surprisingly common. While hypnotized, no ?under the bed? monstrous creature will emerge. You will remain you.
 
WILL I BE AWARE OF ANYTHING?
You will hear every word the hypnotherapist says and will be aware of the sounds of every day living surrounding you. Hypnosis is a very focused state of mind. You are more aware than in your normal, waking state of mind.
 
WHAT HAPPENS IF I DON'T COME OUT OF HYPNOSIS?
That is an impossibility. All hypnosis ends, whether formally ended by your hypnotherapist, or by yourself. If, in the unlikely event you are hypnotized, and the hypnotherapist leaves the room, you will end your hypnosis naturally, much like how you wake up from a nap.
 
WHAT DOES IT FEEL LIKE TO BE HYPNOTIZED?
Hypnosis provides a sense of profound physical and mental relaxation. Internal chatter is quieted, and you feel peaceful and calm. It is similar to those few moments of being not-quit-awake just before you fall asleep. When your hypnosis is over you feel wonderfully good, refreshed, revitalized, and full of energy.
 
HOW DOES HYPNOSIS WORK?
This remains a mystery, even after 4,000 years of use. The how is not known. However, the results are undeniable. Burn victims heal faster, the timid become confident, smokers lose the desire for tobacco, procrastinators become productive, arthritics increase comfort, the fearful become calm and assured.
 
WHAT CAN HYPNOSIS DO FOR ME?
Hypnosis puts you in touch with the most powerful and resourceful part of you, your subconscious mind. Hypnosis can help you build unshakable self-confidence, enhance learning and comprehension, reach goals, be free of procrastination, increase motivation, reduce stress, improve health, control habits, boost creativity, develop intuition, manage pain, and accelerate spiritual growth. It can put you in control of your life.
 
WHAT ISSUES CAN BENEFIT FROM HYPNOSIS?
Hypnosis can be beneficial in almost every area of your life: improved sports performance, better concentration and studying, memory enhancement, habit reversal (i.e., smoking cessation or(weight-loss), substance abuse, enhanced sexuality, pain management, resolution of childhood issues, improved relationships, success motivation and other personal and professional development.
 
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HYPNOSIS AND HYPNOTHERAPY?
Hypnosis is the term most familiar to many people. It means ?a deeply relaxed state?. Hypnotists guide their clients into this trance state and then give them positive, effective suggestions for improvement. Hypnotherapy is the use of hypnosis for therapy. Hypnotherapists combine the techniques used by hypnotists with additional therapy methods, such as: age-regression, talk therapy, Gestalt dialogue, etc. Hypnotherapy is often more effective, in a shorter period of time, than conventional therapy because of its unique ability to directly access the subconscious mind.
 
HOW DO I FIND A QUALIFIED HYPNOTHERAPIST?
Ask your friends and others you respect for recommendations. Check credentials and ask about training. Did he or she attend an approved school? Is he or she a member of the National Guild of Hypnotist, National Society of Hypnotherapists, or the American Council of Hypnotist Examiners? Ask how long the hypnotist or hypnotherapist has been practicing, and if he or she specializes in certain issues or problem areas.  For an article on how to choose, see the link below from Therapist Finder.net 

Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy are a self regulated profession. They are not a licensed profession in most states or in Illinois
