Frequently Asked Questions About Hypnotherapy
Q. What does hypnosis feel like?
Hypnosis is a natural state of mind, much like daydreaming. Our clients are often surprised that they can hear everything that is being said and can move or speak during hypnosis without being directed. Everyone’s experience of hypnosis is different and how an individual feels will quite often vary each time they go into hypnosis, particularly as they become more comfortable and familiar with the process. Some clients describe hearing every word we say, while others find their mind wanders a little; many of our clients lose track of time when they are in hypnosis.
How aware or unaware you are during the process is unimportant and does not affect the efficacy of the hypnotherapy. Relaxation isn’t essential to hypnosis, but most of our clients describe themselves as feeling very relaxed during and after the session, and the experience being far more enjoyable than they expected. Many of our clients will learn to self-hypnotise as part of our ongoing therapeutic process.
Q. Do I lose control when I'm hypnotised?
No. Hypnosis is a streamlined state of focused attention, like when you are absorbed in a book, film, sport, or craft. You can emerge from hypnosis at any time if you wish. Think of your COACHD hypnotherapist as an experienced guide, taking you on a journey; they are the facilitator, but the decisions that affect positive change can only be made by you. Realising that you are in control and can manifest and agree on these changes yourself can be very empowering.
The more often you choose to go into hypnosis the easier it is to relax into the process, secure in the knowledge that you remain in control and can end a session of hypnosis at any point should you wish to. As most people find hypnosis deeply relaxing and a very pleasant experience they rarely choose to do this, but they are aware that they could if they so choose.
Q. Can I get stuck in hypnosis?
No. There is absolutely no possibility of you getting stuck in hypnosis. During hypnosis, you remain in total control and can return to full awareness at any time without any intervention from your Hypnotherapist.
Q. How long does COACHD Hypnotherapy take to work?
Every person and situation is unique, but generally, clients should only need between 1-3 sessions per issue.
Each session lasts around 90 minutes, depending on the focus area.

Q. Is COACHD Hypnotherapy suitable for young children?
Yes. We treat young children using hypnosis and hypnotherapy from the age of 3 yrs. Our delivery is adapted to suit young children but is no less effective than with our adult hypnotherapy.
