Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy FAQ

Most Frequently Asked Questions

Anyone who wants to be hypnotized can be. Conversely, if you do not want to be hypnotized you will not be. Cooperation is thus crucial in the assistance of therapeutic change rather than a ‘power tool’ that the therapist possesses to make you change against your will.

How responsive you are to hypnosis and the depth of relaxation achieved is dependent on a number of factors.  Contact our expert hypnotherapist for more information.

Most modern hypnosis is accomplished by voice induction (trance state). 

Some methods might also include use of strobe lights and rotating spirals but this is often portrayed as an essential feature in television dramas. A therapist can use slower and deeper voice tones to help create a relaxed state of mind, but style might vary with some therapists using more authoritative tones if they prefer ‘command’ methods of induction.


Indirect styles help the patient feel as though they are choosing to relax, as if “allowing” the changes to take place. Command styles feel as though you are being told to relax. No magical words or spells are involved in the process. On certain occasions, and with prior permission, the use of touch can be employed where the therapist touches the patient’s hands or forehead to deepen the patient’s awareness.


Eye closure usually happens fairly soon into the induction, but individuals can be hypnotized with their eyes open. Daydreaming and a ‘TV trance’ state are examples of ‘eyes-open hypnosis.’ As part of the induction, the hypnotherapist can use ‘deepeners’ to trigger a deeper state of relaxation. This can vary from helping the patient recall ‘their’ place of relaxation to visualizing images, sounds or sensations that remind the patient of ‘letting-go.’

The hypnotic state is similiar to ‘daydreaming’ or a state of ‘inner focused awareness’ than a sleep state. A ‘trance-state’ is sometimes used but some therapists prefer to avoid this term because it tends to build a mistaken image of being ‘placed under a spell.’ Consider your awareness when being immersed in a good book or television programme when, despite some background noise, you can still hear the noise in the distance but selectively attend to the book or television. This is similar to a trance-state, but in these conditions most people would not consider themselves to be ‘under a spell.’


In hypnosis, you are able to think and hear what the therapist is saying to you. In lighter states of relaxation the patient may consider that very little has altered at all during the hypnotic induction. In deeper states it can feel like sleep, yet the patient is still fully aware of the therapist’s voice and can recall some of the suggestions used. One can be influenced by a suggestion in a fully conscious state. This is often affected by the context, timing and person suggesting it. Hypnosis facilitates the patient’s receptiveness to the suggestion with some incredible results.


The majority of patients would describe hypnosis as a pleasant experience. Some of the changes of awareness include a slowing of one’s breathing, limbs and eyelids feeling heavy and a slower, yet more intensive thought-processing. In deeper states there can be eye-closure with rapid-eye movement (REM) where the patient is involved in intense visualization (similar to being in a dream-state). Patients recall significant aspects of the relaxation yet feel in control throughout the induction. There is often a feeling of time distortion. A patient who has been in a relaxed state for thirty minutes may feel like they have only been relaxed for ten minutes.


Hypnotherapy is about empowering patients with suggestions to achieve mutually negotiated goals.

Misconceptions about hypnotherapy probably stem from stage hypnosis. From the audience’s perspective, it can look as if the volunteers are performing against their will. However, those selected to be part of the stage show are likely to be somnambulists (those who visualize so well that they have sleep-walking tendencies) and are extroverts – they love the attention of being on stage. Having granted ‘power’ over to the stage hypnotist (a mere facilitator), the audience are fooled into thinking that the chosen subjects are under his/her spell.  Suggestions need to be realistic and believable. Thus suggesting that a volunteer should go and shoot somebody would probably get a confused response but would be rejected. The subjects are under no control and are not made to do anything.
