How many hypnotherapy sessions will I need?
Most situations only require three hypnotherapy sessions and some issues are even resolved in only one session!
What if I'm one of those people who just can't be hypnotized?
Over ninety-five percent of the population is hypnotisable. The lightest state of hypnosis (Alpha) is achieved easily. Almost everyone enters a hypnotic state every day, several times per day. It's that state you are in when you are watching TV, reading a good book, playing video games, and, yes, even driving. It's the state you are in when you are just waking up or just going to bed. You are not fully conscious, but you are not fully unconscious either. In this state you are up to 200 times more suggestible than when you are fully awake (Beta).
What if I fall asleep during the phone session?
That was a valid question a few years back, before we had advanced research on the topic. In hypnosis, even if you fall "asleep" during the session, your brain is still recording all of the information in your subconscious mind. It has been discovered by several research groups that the hearing acts like a surveillance camera. Your eyes close, but you ears cannot close. They remain open always, taking in information constantly. When a mother is "asleep" and hears her baby cry, she will "awaken" immediately. The truth is, we never really sleep, a part of our brain is always alert. That part is our hearing. It stays alert to protect us and or offspring. If someone breaks into your home while you are "asleep," you will be alerted as soon as you hear a noise. Your hearing is "on" 24/7, taking in information and recording it. So hypnosis will work even if you're asleep.
What if I'm too intelligent to be hypnotized?
Actually, the more intelligent you are, the more easily you can be hypnotized. Intelligence is directly correlated to suggestibility. People of a below-average IQ find it difficult to go into a hypnotic state. Geniuses are naturally close to a hypnotic state of Alpha most of the time and therefore enter hypnosis easily. This accounts for their ability to transfer information from their subconscious mind to their waking like and bring to the world their creations.
