Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is hypnosis?

    Have you ever been so involved with a task that you have lost track of time? Have you ever driven from one place to another and arrived safely, but not remembered the journey? Have you ever read a book and become so involved with the plot you can see scenery and hear characters speak? Have you ever day-dreamed? These are everyday examples of an altered state of awareness.


    Hypnosis is another example of an altered state of awareness-one which can be used for self help. It is a perfectly natural state which occurs between being fully awake and fully asleep. In the clinical setting hypnosis is usually accompanied by a pleasant state of physical relaxation which in itself is beneficial, especially in the symptoms induced by or aggravated by stress. The term Hypnotherapy means the use of hypnosis for the treatment and relief of a variety of somatic and psychological symptoms.


    It is important to note that no one can be hypnotised against their will and no one can be forced to do things while under hypnosis that they do not want to do.

    Hypnotherapy is completely natural and safe. There are no harmful side-effects. When administered by a professionally trained and skilled Hypnotherapist the benefits are long lasting. During hypnosis, you will be aware of what is happening: most people do not "feel hypnotised." You are still in control.

  • What is hypnotherapy?

    Hypnotherapy is therapy that utilises hypnosis: as simple as that! Therefore it is important that a hypnotherapist is properly trained

  • Can anyone be hypnotised?

    Generally speaking, all people with an average intelligence and who are not suffering from any mental health issue (ie psychosis) and can concentrate will be able to achieve a hypnotic trance state. As previously stated, no one can be hypnotised against their will and you are always in control when you are in hypnosis.

  • What is NLP?

    Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) is a model of communication that focuses on identifying and using patterns of thought that influence a person's behaviour as a means of improving the quality and effectiveness of their lives. It offers a paradigm of how the brain works (neuro), about how language interacts with the brain (linguistic), and how we use this interaction to get the results we want for ourselves and others (programming). It is an effective, proven vehicle for accelerated human change, radically altering the "old way" of lengthy psychotherapy.


    NLP was initially created by linguist Dr. John Grinder and computer scientist and Gestalt therapist Dr. Richard Bandler. Together they produced a linguistic model that identified the language patterns of a few gifted individuals such as hypnotherapist Milton Erickson, MD., Fritz Perls of Gestalt therapy, anthropologist Gregory Bateson and Virginia Satir of family systems therapy. The synthesis of their findings, a blend of cognitive and behavioural science, resulted in the technology known as Neuro Linguistic Programming. In the 20+ years since it was first developed, NLP has grown, changed and expanded, and it continues to do so today
