What is Hypnosis exactly?

Hypnosis is simply a state of relaxed focus. It is a natural state. In fact, each of us enters such a state - sometimes called a trance state - at least twice a day: once when we are falling asleep, and once when we are waking up. That kind of fuzzy, timeless state between dreaming and awake is a trance state.   There are many other times that people enter a natural state of trance such as driving, watching a movie, or  working on a favorite activity in the "flow" state. These are all "altered states of consciousness," and all are various levels of trance.

​Hollywood has perpetrated many myths about hypnosis, and not remembering anything from the hypnosis session is one of those myths.  Hypnosis is not a state of amnesia or of no awareness. Just the opposite true, in fact: hypnosis is a state of very heightened awareness and focus.

What is Hypnotherapy?

Is Hypnosis safe?

Yes.   Remember that hypnosis is a natural state of mind that you already experience a few times every day. And in case you're wondering, no, you can't get "stuck" in hypnosis.
