Hypnotherapy Frequently Asked Questions

Q:Will I lose consciousness during hypnosis?

A:A person does not lose awareness or fall asleep while in hypnosis. She/he is alert and aware of everything at all times and hears everything the hypnotherapist says.

Q:Will I surrender my will or lose control over my will?

A:All hypnosis is a kind of self-hypnosis. The ability or depth of hypnosis is a subjective experience. A hypnotherapist guides and develops a hypnotic state, the client is always in control.

Q:Can people be hypnotized against their will?

A:A person cannot be hypnotized against her/his will. Hypnosis can be successfully done when trust and cooperation exist between a client and a hypnotherapist.

Q: Will people tell any secrets while in hypnosis?

A:No, hypnosis is not a “truth serum”. A person will not reveal any intimate secrets during her/his hypnotic state which she/he would not want to tell while awake.

Q:What happens if I cannot get out of hypnosis or get stuck?

A:No such situation occurs. Since a client has the control, there is no difficulty in terminating the hypnotic state. Even if nothing is done, the hypnotic state will be broken after 15-20 minutes.

Q:Do people remember what happened during hypnotic state?

A:Hypnosis state is not a state during sleep. She/he remembers everything she/he said/saw/heard during the session. She/he may sometimes, after several days/weeks from the session, understand the meaning of messages from her/his subconscious mind during the hypnotherapy.

Q:Does hypnosis weaken the will?

A:The will is not weakened or changed in any way. A client is always in control and cannot be made to do anything against her/his will.

Q:Can a person become addicted to hypnosis or can it be habit-forming as a drug?

A.:No. A client can resist hypnosis at any time, no matter how many times she/he has been hypnotized.

Q.:What is GIFT (Goal Image Focusing Technique)?

A:The GIFT is an imaginary procedure perfectly adaptable to hypnotic techniques.
