Ericksonian HynotherapyEricksonian Hynotherapy

Traditional Clinical Hypnotherapy uses commanding language like you will quit smoking. Ericksonian Hypnosis uses indirect suggestions which are more conversational in nature which are little harder to resist because your conscious mind quite often does not recognise them as suggestions.

An example of this is

As you listen to the soothing tones of my voice perhaps your eyes may grow tried and you will want to close them, as you listen to this story you know you can experience a pleasant deepening sensation of relaxation as you sit there in that big comfy chair, just allowing yourself to go deeper with every breath you take knowing you can go deeper and deeper, that's right.


What Does Hypnosis Feel Like?

Being hypnotised is very relaxing and not very different to being awake. You remain conscious but very relaxed in a trance state and you will remember everything. Your body will feel very heavy; sometimes there may be pins and needles in your joints but not always.

Will I Get Stuck In A Trance?

It is very easy to come out of a trance once the session is finished.

Can Everybody Be Hypnotised?

Most people can be hypnotised as most hypnosis is self hypnosis. You cannot be hypnotised against your will and you cannot be made to do anything against your will the hypnotherapist does not have power over you when you are in a hypnotic state.

The people who cannot be hypnotised are those who are under the influence of alcohol, drugs, and those who have mental disabilities or are senile.

Am I In Control?

You are in control at all times. You would wake up instantly if the hypnotherapist said anything that went against your beliefs and values.
