Wondering if you can be hypnotized is common, and if you have had no personal experience with hypnosis it is understandable. There are myriad misconceptions regarding hypnosis. One that is commonly expressed is “I cannot be hypnotized, I don’t like to lose control.”
Everyone of normal intelligence is capable of being hypnotized. In fact, we all go in and out of hypnosis several times a day. Driving down the highway, eating mindlessly, taking part in our personal daily rituals; these are all examples of hypnotic states.
The key to successful hypnosis, is receptivilty. You have to want the suggestions. When a client comes in for hypnosis, we establish their true desires and their motivations, and structure the sessions accordlingly.
The most successful hypnosis clients are those that we see that are engaged in the process, and truly want to make a positive change in their lives. When that is present….there is no limit to what hypnosis can accomplish!
