Frequently Asked Questions About A Professional Hypnotist’s Role In Your Health

How many hypnotherapy sessions will I need?

Just as people come in different shapes and sizes, they also react to hypnosis in different ways. Depending on their reaction and their desire to make permanent changes, experience tells us that people commonly achieve the most positive results by undergoing 3 to 5 sessions. But you might be able to make the changes you want in only one session! It has happened.

Can I claim the cost of hypnotherapy with my private health fund?

Some of the more progressive health funds cover a portion of the session cost, especially from Clinical Members of the Australian Hypnotherapists’ Association, one of Linda’s qualifications. We suggest you contact your fund directly for the relevant information.

Can anyone be hypnotised?

Yes, if you allow it to happen. Anybody can resist hypnosis if that’s what they want to do. If you listen and follow the instructions of the practitioner, then you will be hypnotised and the hypnotherapist can make any changes you need.

Will you make me act like a chicken?

No, not unless that’s what you want! Your subconscious mind won’t allow you to do anything you’re not entirely comfortable doing. It protects you physically and emotionally and, in hypnosis, you are in control.

Will I go to sleep during hypnotherapy?

No, not normally. In deep hypnosis the conscious mind wanders, leaving the subconscious mind open to therapeutic suggestion. This can feel like sleep because you won’t necessarily remember what is being said to you, but you will be aware of everything.

Will I hear everything you say?

Yes. You have to hear everything being said to receive any benefit from it. This is an important point because you must allow your conscious mind to wander during hypnosis, and this gives you the impression that you can’t hear what’s being said. While this happens, however, your subconscious mind hears and understands everything. And this is where we can help you make the changes you want to make.

A famous stage hypnotist told me I couldn’t be hypnotised. Is this true?

No. Stage hypnosis, by nature, is required to be entertainment, and the individuals who are willing and open to this type of hypnosis make up about 50% of the population. By telling you that you couldn’t be hypnotised, they meant hypnotised in a way suitable for stage hypnosis – quickly and deeply. In a therapeutic situation, we have more time to spend with you and are trained to hypnotise many different types of people using varying techniques. If you are willing to allow it to happen, then you will be able to go into the hypnotic state.

Can I get “stuck” in hypnosis?

No. This is a Hollywood myth. Your subconscious mind will not allow you to be in hypnosis any longer than necessary.

Can I be hypnotised against my will or to say or do things against my will?

There is no doubt that brainwashing and other negative influences do exist. These, however, are undertaken on a victim under duress and over a lengthy process of relentless pressure. The idea of an evil scientist hypnotising a hapless pawn is another Hollywood myth. In a therapeutic situation, no hypnotist can exert any more power over you than you allow. You will always retain and adhere to your moral code and will not say or do anything outside your own moral boundaries.

Will I become a different person?

No. All your memories and experiences will be preserved. You may feel better about yourself by overcoming negative aspects of your life and you may even look at situations from a different perspective. However, you will definitely remain who you are.

Will I remember things I don’t want to during hypnotherapy?

The subconscious mind does repress the memory of negative and traumatic experiences. This is a protective mechanism to prevent you from continually going through the scenario over and over again. The downside is that the negative emotions associated with the event can cause problems in other areas of your current life, and this is why many people turn to hypnotherapy in the first place. It’s not necessary to re-experience the event to overcome the emotions. The emotions can be effectively cleared without reliving the associated trauma.

Will I be able to remember everything that’s ever happened to me?

This is difficult to answer categorically. The subconscious mind does recall experiences and this can be extremely helpful for releasing negative patterns. It is necessary to note, however, that all these memories are stored through the filter of perception. Your memory of an experience will not be entirely the same as the person who witnessed it next to you. For this reason, the important element of hypnotherapy is the attached emotion and its influence in your life. If that influence is negative, you can overcome it without reliving the experience again in hypnosis.
