Hypnosis & Hypnotherapy FAQs

Most Commonly Asked Questions

Hypnotherapy is a type of psychotherapy and is a guided form of therapy that makes use of a mixture of extreme concentration, attention, and deep relaxation to help an individual reach a heightened state of awareness, or a trance.

In this altered state of mind, an individual can access difficult thoughts, engage with painful emotions or become more open to suggestions that could bring about positive change.

There are many benefits of hypnotherapy and, whether used alone or in conjunction with other forms of therapy and medical treatment, it can play a big role in protecting and promoting physical, emotional and mental health.

Hypnosis is a technique used in hypnotherapy whereby the patient is guided into a trance-like or day-dream-like state that involves a mix of intense concentration, relaxation and attention. While under hypnosis, patients are able to engage with their unconscious mind, making them more open to hypnotic suggestions and positive change.

Hypnotherapy has proven to be very successful treatment for a wide range of conditions, such as anxiety, insomnia, weight issues and even for bad habits like smoking or drinking.

While it is not the right treatment for every person, it is certainly a treatment worth trying, given the overwhelmingly positive results!

Hypnotherapy can and has been used to treat, alter or improve upon a range of conditions and illnesses, such as:

  • anxiety
  • depression
  • grief
  • chronic pain
  • PTSD
  • stress
  • insomnia
  • OCD
  • various addictions, like drug addiction, alcoholism or smoking
  • weight problems
  • goal or aspiration achievements


When using hypnotherapy as a treatment, it is very important to understand that you must first want to change or improve. Wanting to quit smoking because you know it is bad for you is not the same as wanting to quit because you know quitting will improve your life!

Like any form of therapy, hypnotherapy will impact every person differently.

While some people may see or feel an immediate change, others might require a few more sessions before they start to see an improvement. This is normal as hypnotherapy deals with your subconscious mind which, though it may be more receptive of suggestions for change, can still take time to change habits or overcome addictions.

Not at all! You are in control at all times while in a hypnotic or trance state. You can control how deeply into that state you go, as well as when and how you come out of it.

Hypnotherapy merely helps you reach this state of heightened awareness, in which you will be able to engage your subconscious mind and open yourself up to suggestions.

Hypnotherapy is an extremely effective tool, and holds many benefits. It is possible for hypnotherapy to streamline the road to improvement. For example, if you have been struggling with anxiety for your whole life, hypnotherapy can help you understand your feelings and develop healthy coping strategies to manage your anxiety.

This is perhaps one of the greatest benefits of hypnotherapy – because of the power of your subconscious mind, you take action and start to enact the changes you want to see in your life much faster.

Hypnotherapy can also:

  • remove mental barriers preventing change
  • assist with feelings of calmness, relaxation and control
  • assist with pain management
  • help you replace bad habits with good ones

The biggest benefit of hypnotherapy is that it puts the power to change your life back into your hands. It equips you with the weapons you need to fight the aspects of your life that you want to change, improve or eliminate.

Like any treatment, medication or therapy, hypnotherapy will not work for everyone. It is a uniquely individual experience: some people might enter the trance state while others struggle; some might experience a very deep trance while others only enter a light trance – though for hypnotherapy to work, you do not need to enter a deep trance state.

In order for hypnotherapy to work, you must be open to the idea and be comfortable with fully committing yourself to trying. For us to reach the subconscious mind that will help you change and improve your life, we must first pass your analytical mind which often has ideas of its own!
