Most hypnosis sessions follow these four steps:
As you get used to tuning into my voice I might use a guided visualisation, or give the direct suggestion to relax even deeper, even further. The intention being to encourage you to release and surrender to your inner exploration.
This comprises the bulk of the time given to the hypnotic trance work. In other words this is where I conduct the therapy. That is, we address the problem or issue that you are seeking a solution to. This is the creative space where I have tailored the hypnotic techniques and selected wording best suited to target your goals and issues. As a result, your willingness to go along with what I have assessed to be a potentially helpful technique for your goals combine to ensure that there is a maximum chance of suggestion being accepted by your subconscious.
Common phenomena are tingling, a feeling of deep relaxation, time distortion (some feel they were in trance for a lot longer than 45 minutes, some feel it was a lot less), a sense of zoning out or of having been “away”, and sensations of sudden warmth or coolness.
Some people report that they have been drifting in and out of sleep or a dream state.
