Frequently Asked Questions:
 
1) How does it feel to be hypnotized?
- There is really no such thing as a specific hypnotized feeling Hypnosis is not sleep. Ordinarily, you will be conscious of everything that goes on when you are in the hypnotic state. Sometimes, though, you may relax so much under hypnosis that you may drift off and lose track of what is happening. The most unique characteristic, the one that people tend to remember best and find most surprising, is perhaps the subjective sense of "involuntariness" - of things happening without you (seemingly) acting to make them happen.
 
2) What if I do not want to lose control of myself?
- This is another Hollywood myth. You always have control, and you can always hear what's going on. Hypnosis is nothing but a state of relaxed deep focus. It is a natural state that you enter at least twice a day (while waking up and while falling asleep!), and probably much more often than that. Hypnosis does involve a certain amount of letting go of yourself and opening up to a new experience. However, you are not really losing control of yourself when you respond to what the hypnotist suggests. You are making the decision to go along with his or her guidance at every step. You can benefit from hypnosis as long as you are willing to go along with the instructions of hypnotist. It may be helpful to think of the hypnotist as your personal coach - a person helping you to master new ways to use your own mind.
 
3) What if I get into a hypnotic trance and can't wake up ?
-Not to worry. Only in movies and bad novels do people get stuck in the hypnotic state. In the real world, it happens only very rarely that people cannot be immediately brought back into the ordinary waking state at the end of a hypnosis session. When that happens, it may simply take them a little longer to come to, or they slip into ordinary sleep and have a nap, and then wake up. In either case, there is no reason for concern.
 
4) Can Hypnotherapy as an alternative to replace the conventional Medical Care?
- Although Clinical Hypnotherapy has been proven scientifically and medically to help alleviate many of the physical symptoms, it is not an alternative to seeking proper medical care. Hypnotherapy is an integrative and Complementary Therapy and where necessary, be used in partnership with conventional medicine. First check our all health problems with your doctor, and only then you can combine both a Physician’s and a Hypnotherapist’s healing methods to speed up the recovery.
 
5) Does anyone suitable for Hypnotherapy?
- Serious psychiatric or mental health problems are referred to a qualified psychotherapist or psychiatrist. Medical problems with the physical body must always be treated by a physician, who can, at his or her discretion, prescribe hypnotherapy for pain control, hypnoanesthesia or relaxation. Drug addiction, family dynamics disorders, clinical depression and other such problems need to be treated by doctors and psychiatrists, who can, at their discretion, prescribe hypnotherapy as a supplementary treatment. Drug addiction, family dynamics disorders, clinical depression and other such problems need to be treated by doctors and psychiatrists, who can, at their discretion, prescribe hypnotherapy as a supplementary treatment. The odds are against it. While the degree to which people are receptive to hypnosis varies from individual to individual, the great majority of people, perhaps three out of every four individuals, can be hypnotized to a sufficient degree to enjoy some of the benefits that hypnosis can offer.
 
6) My friend tried hypnosis and it didn't work.
- There are many reasons behind to cause the hypnotherapy did not work according to the client’s expectancy such as the creditability of the Hypnotherapist, the soft skill that hypnotherapist that he/her employed during the session, the degree of client’s desire to change, environment and so on. Hypnotherapy has mountains of research to prove its effectiveness. It may be one off case and suggest your friend can talk further to the Hypnotherapist or seek for other experienced therapyist advise. The issue may not caused from the Hypnotherapy, may be other reason.
7) How much for Hypnotherapy session and how many session do I need?
- Consultation fee is HK$800 per session and around 90 minutes in length. The number of sessions are needed depends on the nature of the problem and the person’s own will. Some need less and others need more. If you are ready to change and want to have a new start, the sessions needed will be lesser.
