Frequently asked questions

What is Hypnosis?
Hypnosis is a state of relaxation and concentration at one with a state of heightened awareness induced by suggestion. It is a non-addictive power for the good and is a natural manifestation of the mind at work. The word hypnosis is derived from the Greek word 'hypnos' meaning 'to sleep', but is actually far from being asleep. By the time the early users of hypnosis realised this and tried to change the name it had already stuck.

Are there any people that can't be hypnotised?
No. Except persons with learning difficulties, although of course the degree varies from person to person. The only other exceptions would be persons 'high' on the effects of alcohol or drugs.

Are any drugs or tablets used?
No.

Will I remember what has happened?
Yes. Most people are surprised to find that they remember all that happens during the therapy, it is a state of heightened, not diminished awareness.

So I'm not asleep then?
No. Simply very relaxed.

Are there any causes for concern?
None whatsoever. Hypnosis is a proven therapeutic aid. The only time hypnosis could prove dangerous is whilst driving or using machinery. You should not listen to a hypnotic tape under those circumstances.

Can I speak whilst in hypnosis?
Yes and in hypnoanalysis you will be encouraged to do so.

How many visits will I need?
Simple problems, such as smoking, nail biting, slimming, pre-test nerves etc usually require a single session and the success rate is surprisingly high. The more deep-rooted nervous disorders require 'analytical' rather than 'suggestion' therapy which usually consists of 6 - 8 weekly sessions.

Can I be influenced to do anything against my will?
No, and in fact you would be shocked out of the hypnotic state should such a thing happen. All IAH therapists undergo strict background checks and adhere to code of ethics so this needn't be a worry.

Can 'normal' people be hypno-analysed?
Not only can be but should be - for an insight into yourself it has no equal.
