Below are the questions that I am most commonly asked. If your questions aren’t answered here, please call 406 861-5547 for more information.
Yes, all of us have been hypnotized at some time. Examples of this are when we are day dreaming or safely driving our car down the road and suddenly realize we have traveled several miles without noticing.
No. During hypnotherapy our minds are focused and thus we have more control and will protect ourselves, e.g. if there is a fire in the office you will automatically get up and leave.
No. In hypnotherapy it is impossible to make anyone compromise their morals, values and beliefs.
No. A hypnotherapist can not make you do anything against your morals, values and beliefs. During staged entertainment hypnosis people do silly things but never anything harmful to themselves.
No. With hypnotherapy the cause of the symptom is removed and thus the symptom is no longer needed to tell us something is wrong. A simple example: if you have a wood sliver in your finger the symptom is pain and swelling to alert us of the problem. If you remove the sliver the sub-conscious mind heals the wound nicely and the symptoms go away as they are no longer needed. The same is true for emotional slivers we receive from negative events in our lives. These create symptoms such as head aches, depression, high blood pressure etc. but once they are removed the symptoms go away. Hypnotherapy safely and painlessly removes these emotional slivers and then the symptoms are no longer needed.
No. The worst thing that can happen is you may fall asleep for a few moments and then wake up refreshed. It is the same as sleep, we can’t be stuck in sleep, we always wake up.
No. On the contrary is is no more dangerous then day dreaming, meditation or being focused on a project. During this time we protect ourselves from negative thoughts and influences.
You will sit in a comfortable chair with relaxing music playing in the background. After a period of time you will find a level of relaxation where you are comfortable. I will not try to talk you down deeper then you want to go. Once you are relaxed I will talk to your sub-conscious mind, and allow it to correct anything that is causing problems. You don’t have to do anything but relax; there is no pressure to perform.
During hypnotherapy your subconscious mind does all the work. During counseling the therapist asks difficult and painful questions about your past and tries to bring those painful events in your life to a conscious level to heal them. This can be a very difficult and painful process to realize the unpleasant things in our lives before they are healed. With hypnotherapy the event is healed at a deep level without anxiety or pain.
Yes. Hypnotherapy is very effective in removing a very wide angle of fears and phobias.
Yes, there is much hope for this situation. Your subconscious mind works on a very powerful level to allow you to move away from this addiction permanently.
Yes, physical problems are usually symptoms of stress or other causes.
Yes, hypnotherapy works at removing and resolving the root of the problem rather then minimizing the symptoms.
