Some misconceptions of hypnosis
- Hypnosis is not sleep, although it is very much like sleep, the mind is very awake.
- The patient & hypnotherapist works hand in hand, hypnotherapist 49%, patient 51%
- You cannot be hypnotise against your will, all hypnosis is self-hypnosis.
You are not under the control of the hypnotherapist, you can choose to awake anytime, you are always in control.
You can hear everything the therapists says, your unconscious mind protects you from receiving unwanted suggestion. There is no need to be afraid that the therapist will plant suggestion of their own desire.
Hypnosis is a natural relaxing state, at times its so relax that patient fall to sleep. As with natural sleep, you will eventually wake up naturally. So far, there has be no history of anyone getting “Stuck” in hypnosis.
