Frequently Asked Questions

Without questions no learning & no growth can take place

What is the difference between hypnosis performed at shows and hypnotherapy?

The hypnosis which is performed at shows is done specifically for entertainment purposes and hypnotherapy is used for assisted healing.

What can you do for me?

I have been trained professionally by the South African Modern Hypnosis Academy (SAMHA), as an advanced level practitioner. I practice according to a strict code of ethics and I am located in a safe and secure environment. I recognize that you are an individual with your own personality, life experiences and belief system. The definition of “normal” is left to you because it is how you choose to live your life, which is normal. I neither treat nor diagnose physical or mental illness as I am not a Psychologist or a Psychiatrist.

Will I get stuck in a trance?

You can open your eyes whenever you wish to. It is your choice and you will always be aware of the freedom to do that.

Will I lose control in hypnosis?

No. The fact is, in hypnosis you are always in control. You can and will reject any suggestions you do not like or  that go against your values or your wishes.

Can you make me do or say something I don’t want to?

You will be aware of exactly what is said and done as I cannot force you to do anything against your will.

Can I drive afterwards?

Yes, you will be able to drive afterwards. You may well feel sleepy, but you will be fully aware when you leave your session.

Can I bring a friend or a relative?

You are welcome to bring a friend or family member for support but for confidentiality purposes they will not be able to sit in your session with you and it goes against my code of ethics to hypnotize more than one person at a time. I have chairs outside in the garden which are comfortable if it does not rain.

Can a Hypnotherapist control you during hypnosis?

Hypnosis can help you gain control over behaviors you’d like to change. It may in fact, help you cope better.

Although you’re more open to suggestion during hypnosis, you don’t lose control over your behavior during a hypnosis session.

In fact, people in a hypnotic trance are in total control of themselves.

Hypnosis does not take control over somebody. You can’t be made to do anything against your will. You won’t reveal any information that you wished to remain secret either. You don’t lose control over your behaviour. Hypnosis just makes it easier to experience suggestions but doesn’t force you to do anything.
