Frequently Asked Questions
Can I be hypnotised?
Anyone with a normal level of intelligence can be hypnotised. If you can read this, you have the level of intelligence required to be hypnotised.
We all go into natural trance states on a daily basis. The only reason that you would not be able to be hypnotised is if you didn't want to be hypnotised.
Will I cluck like a chicken or something like that?
Only if you want to! That is Stage Hypnosis, which is very different to Clinical Hypnotherapy. To illustrate, lasers at a night club are used for fun and entertainment - using a laser for Laser Eye Surgery is very different.
Just like a laser can be used for fun or to help people, so can hypnosis.
How many sessions does it take?
It is impossible to say in advance, as every one is different, and every challenge can be different. On average it only takes 3 to 7 sessions to achieve your desired results.
Sessions are spaced either weekly, fortnightly or monthly depending on what's being addressed.
Is hypnosis endorsed for medical or psychological use?
Yes. In 1892 the British Medical Association unanimously endorsed the therapeutic use of hypnosis, and then in 1955 the British Medical Association also advised all physicians and medical students to receive fundamental training in Hypnosis.
In 1958 the American Medical Association approved a report on the medical uses of hypnosis, with the American Psychological Association in 1960 endorsing hypnosis as a branch of psychology
What if I'm to strong willed, can I be hypnotised?
Strong willed people actually are the best people to be hypnotised because of their ability to focus. It's the people who can't hold a thought in their head for longer than half a second that are the hardest to hypnotise, but not impossible.
What does hypnosis feel like?
Simple - close your eyes, take a nice deep breath and say to yourself "relax" as you breath out. Then open your eyes again.
That's what hypnosis feels like, only much more relaxing.
Hypnosis is a naturally occurring state that we all go in and out of on a daily basis. If you have ever been driving or walking along and suddenly realise you don't remember part of the journey or how you got "here", you were in a natural state of hypnosis.
Will I be out of control?
People who ask that question are usually thinking of stage hypnosis, which is very different to clinical hypnotherapy. During hypnosis you are in control all of the time. Even the people we see in stage hypnosis.
The reason people are on the stage in the first place is because they want to have a bit of fun, and stage hypnosis lets them have that bit of fun. If they were told to do something against their beliefs or morals it would not happen. If they simply did not want to do something, then they would not let themselves do it, but where's the fun in that?
Do I get a guarantee?
No, and beware of any hypnotist that offers you a guarantee.
Think about it, does your Doctor give you a guarantee? Do psychiatrists or psychologists give guarantees?
I've tried hypnosis before and it didn't work then, why would it work now?
This is usually caused by a mismatch between client and hypnotherapist.
If we don't like the therapist, we will not have rapport with them and maybe we won't trust them. If that's the case our guard is up which could prevent us from experiencing trance.
On the other hand, it may be a hypnotherapist who is using outdated methods either because they received outdated training, or they just haven't kept up. In the old days hypnotists used to rely solely on reading scripts.
This is like the old T-shirts where "one size fits all". That never worked and neither does reading the same script to everyone and hoping that it fits everyone.
A properly trained hypnotherapist, like the one you will see at Lasting Results, is able to make every hypnosis session unique to the unique individual.
