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?
Hypnotherapy is the process of using hypnosis to interact with the subconscious mind in an open-reflective process to create positive change in your life. Many clients describe it as a very relaxing, guided meditation.
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.
