What is a Free Introductory Hypnotherapy Session?

We've put this in place for anyone who is uncertain/sceptical/worried/scared/nervous about hypnosis. It's basically a 'first meeting' for you to get to know us and vice versa. Upon arriving you come into our clinic room, sit in our big, soft super-comfy recliner and we have a chat about what problems you may be having and we tell you how we can go about helping you address these in a potential future paid hypnosis session, how hypnosis works, what is required of you and also assist you into a light trance just so you can get a feel for what it's like. It will go for about 60-75mins so it's about putting your feelers out obligation-free and finding out if hypnosis treatment is for you.

Will the hypnotherapist have control over me whilst I'm hypnotised?
You are in control at all times and the hypnotist is directing you to assist you in making the changes you desire.

Can someone get stuck in hypnosis? 
No you can not. It is a natural state which most people enter into many times a day without realising it. If the hypnotist left the room while you were in a hypnotic trance state you would simply come out of the hypnotic trance in approximately 5 minutes or drift into sleep then wake up when you were ready.

Can I be hypnotised?
Everyone can enter into a hypnotic trance state.  When someone tells me they can not be hypnotised I always grab their arm and check for a pulse. If you have a pulse you can be assisted to enter a hypnotic trance!

How deep into a hypnotic trance will I go?
It varies person to person. Some people go very deeply into trance on the first session. Others only achieve a light state of trance on the first session, then on the second session because they know what is happening, they let go and achieve a deep level of trance. Most people report being able to go deeper with each successive session. All levels of trance from light to very deep bypass the critical factor and are effective to make the changes you desire.

What does being in a hypnotic trance feel like?
Have you ever woken up in the morning not sure if you are awake or if your dreaming and you feel like you couldn't move your body even if you tried?  That's the most common explanation I hear from clients. They tell me they felt so relaxed and their  muscles felt heavy with an overall calmness many have never experienced before.
