Your Stories of Healing


What is hypnosis?
It is a deeply relaxed, trance-like state where you are able to talk directly to your unconscious mind and make any changes that you want to make.
It is a wonderful state for enhanced learning. You have heightened focus.
What does hypnosis feel like?
You know that lovely half awake and half asleep state first thing in the morning. That is how you feel while in hypnosis.
Can you make me do stuff that I don’t want to do?
No. Your unconscious mind will always stop you from doing anything it considers harmful. The people you see in state hypnosis being idiots, actually like doing that. The hypnotist selects people he can see are going to cooperate and are happy to be the center of attention on stage.
Is it safe to drive home after hypnosis?
Yes. I do check you are fully awake before you go and have water you can drink if you need to. We chat for a while afterwards.
What does Escape from Anxiety involve?
I start by asking you what feelings you want to move from and what you want to move to. I also ask for a brief dot point list of traumatic things that have happened to you so that I can give you your success path or escape map. Then we do a deep relaxation and discovery of who you really are. We move on to develop a deeper understanding of why you have been hurt and controlled so that we can get rid of the harm and move on into the future that you design.
Do you get rid of the memories of trauma?
No, some things can’t be unseen and unheard, but you can let the pain go. You defeat the cause and in the process you become stronger and wiser.
How does weight-loss hypnosis work?
There are two main areas I focus on with you. The first is why you have developed the habits that caused you to put on and hold weight. This is often associated with trauma and we deal with that.
The other main focus is on changing your relationship with food and eating so that it becomes easy to choose healthy food and reject the harmful.
What about a virtual gastric band?
Some hypnotherapists use this for all weight loss clients, and I can if requested although I prefer to use a process I call “Learn to love your stomach” where you become more conscious of your stomach and its needs and size.
What about Quit Smoking? Is it really possible to quit in only one session?
Yes most people are able to quit in a single session and if you do need more help you can come back free. Over 600 people have successfully managed to quit in a single session and if you want to, you can as well.
