Frequently asked questions
What is hypnosis?
First of all, hypnosis is the ability to work with inner perception and imagination. Research suggests that in many ways the unconscious does not differentiate between vividly imagined and actually experienced situations, at least with regard to the effect of these imaginations. Thus, the effect-related work with the unconscious is the focus of hypnosis. This can vary depending on the hypnosis style and / or school.
By introducing hypnosis, a trance state is brought about, in which we get access to the expanded abilities of our unconscious and can stimulate solutions. Trance itself is a natural, and often occurring, relaxed state of mind
Can everyone be hypnotized?
Basically: If you are able to imagine something, a color, a smell or the feeling of a certain surface, then you are capable of inner perception and can be hypnotized. It doesn't matter how good you are at it.
The most important requirement, however, is: you have to want it. Nobody can hypnotize you against your will.
Will hypnosis work for me?
If you allow it. Nobody can hypnotize you against your will. (see next point)
And on the other hand, no willpower is required for the effects of hypnosis to unfold. Because in hypnosis one works with the unconscious!
In hypnosis, different trance depths are also often spoken of. However, hypnotic depth is a subjective experience. It is just a construct that cannot say much about the concrete effect on the individual.
Do I have control over my mind and body during hypnosis?
Yes, anytime. It's like in the cinema. If you like the story and you allow it, you will dive into the film and experience it. In the curves of a car race you lean into your seat, in sad moments you might grab the hand of your companion or get a few tears in your eyes. Although you know that the film is only flickering light on the screen, you and your unconscious experience the emotions as if it were real. And yet, if the fire alarm of the cinema went off at that moment, you would always be able to jump up and act immediately. So, if something happens that contradicts your values or your ethics, you will always notice and be protected. The effect that can be observed here is more likely to be described using the word attention absorption. At best, like in a movie, your attention is absorbed by the voice of the narrator (hypnotist).
Do I have my own will in hypnosis?
Yes, anytime. You don't give up your will at the door. On the contrary, you are fully conscious throughout the session and your mind can decide at any time which suggestion it would like to accept and which not. Indeed, working with hypnosis is teamwork. It is comparable to the relationship between athletes and coaches. The trainer knows exactly what to do and provides guidance. The athlete has to run the marathon himself. And together, great changes can be initiated.
Do I sleep during hypnosis?
No. Even though hypnosis is named after the Greek god Hypnos, hypnosis is not sleep. You are fully conscious throughout the session and you are in a trance state in which the way your brain works changes. Among other things, as described under point 2, the functioning of the areas of the brain responsible for attention control changes. The son of Hypnos is Morpheus, the god of dreams. And this is a very nice indication of how working with the hypnotic trance can work. In the sense of the indirect style of Milton Erikson, personalized dream trips are often devised, which are supposed to trigger resynthesizing psychological processes in the client by means of their metaphors and their indirect suggestions. The inner perception and imagination change the unconscious processes and thus our reality. However, it is important that you understand that you are not sleeping during hypnosis. It is therefore not possible to “not wake up” from hypnosis. However, due to the relaxing effect of hypnosis induction, you may easily fall asleep. But this sleep is no different from normal sleep and if I notice something like this in the session, I will wake you up again immediately.
Who should / shouldn't be hypnotized?
People who are under the influence of alcohol, drugs and / or medication.
People with organic brain impairments.
People with a weak heart.
People with any kind of dementia.
People with current, severe mental illnesses such as schizophrenia or psychosis.
