Hypnosis is a natural state of existence. Everyone day dreams at times or we get lost reading a book or watching a movie or a TV series, this is hypnosis. So, when we get completely engrossed in doing something, we are in a trance or we are hypnotized. We all have experienced hypnosis in everyday life. When we are absorbed in a thought or an act, the mind does not wander away. It just shifts to a more internal place, less distracted by the outer world.

Hypnosis is perfectly safe.  You are always in control of the situation and you are never unconscious. When you are in a hypnotic state you are more aware and more focused on yourself then you are in a normal state. You are not giving up your free will and no one can make you change any essential part of who you are, or do anything that you don’t want to do.  You are in full possession of all your faculties throughout a therapy session. You are able to think and hear and talk to the therapist during the session.

Hypnotherapists don’t prescribe drugs to you because they are not doctors. Hypnotherapy has no possible side effects. It has been found that hypnotherapy almost always works on people despite no drugs. The worst side effect could be that you do not get any benefit from a therapy session.

It’s physically impossible for that to happen. You will be in a deeply relaxed state but fully conscious and you can come out of that state at any time that you want to. You are always in control, even when you are in a deep hypnotic state.

Hypnotherapy sessions are very simple and relaxing. When you walk into the clinic you are asked to be seated in a recliner and be comfortable. Some of the changes of awareness include a slowing of one’s breathing, limbs and eyelids feeling heavy and a slower, yet more intensive thought-processing. In deeper states there can be eye-closure with rapid-eye movement (REM) where the patient is involved in intense visualization (similar to being in a dream-state). Patients recall significant aspects of the relaxation yet feel in control throughout the induction. There is often a feeling of time distortion. A patient who has been in a relaxed state for thirty minutes may feel like they have only been relaxed for ten minutes.

No, in the same way that counselling can be done via telephone (or video call), remote hypnotherapy can also be done safely by video call. When Covid limited the ability to access face to face treatment, remote hypnotherapy grew in popularity and is now a viable treatment method. Hypnotherapy that is done “through” technology is no different than face to face therapy. I have done many remote hypnotherapy sessions and have complete confidence in this treatment method. I now treat more clients nationally and internationally using Google Meet and Zoom.

You are likely to feel relaxed following your hypnotic induction. Most patients enjoy the process of being treated this way. You will be well enough to drive home or return back to work. If the session is dealing with a sensitive subject-matter then it is not uncommon to feel emotional. If the session gets lengthy (more than 2hrs), it may leave the patient feeling mildly tired.

An ideal candidate is one who is looking for a solution for his physical, mental, emotional or psychosomatic problem. Other important criteria include

    • A desire to be hypnotized
    • An understanding of the process
    • A willingness to co-operate fully with the therapis
    • A patient who possesses a good visual imagination—Close your eyes and imagine going to the to the nearest shop. Could you? Then you are a potential candidate for hypnosis.

A regression therapy is when your therapist helps you to go back in time to tap into your buried memories with the help of hypnosis. Once a difficult memory is found, it is explored and processed and finally emotions that had remained buried could come to the surface to be released.

Past Life Regression Therapy is a type of regression therapy where the client taps into buried memories of his/her previous lifetime or lifetimes. The person then relives significant events of the past where the emotional charge is still active, influencing the present, preventing us from acting freely (this is what causes symptoms such as blockages, anxiety, physical pain, etc.). By reviving the traumatic experience which gave rise to the symptom, we allow the trapped energy to be released bringing relief to the client. It allows us to find and revive the origins and roots that are the cause of the current problems. Not only does it increase self-knowledge, but it also gives us access to inner wisdom that helps improve our relationships with others and develop a creative potential for designing our own lives.

It’s a type of regression therapy where you tap into undigested, difficult or traumatic childhood memories that are subconsciously affecting your thought patterns and actions in your adult life. For example, you may have a feeling of being ‘not good enough’ which may have its origin in some childhood incident that you may not remember. Any such memories and emotions that may come up are validated, explored, therapeutically worked on and finally encouraged to be released

Just as in a hypnosis session, you will be put into a trance state. Then, you’ll be able to go back to various past lives and re-live them in your memory. You will feel as if you are there, being that person in that time and space dimension.

Regression therapy is a safe procedure when done by a trained therapist. RT isn’t mind control or brainwashing. Your therapist can’t make you do something embarrassing or something you don’t want to do.

Yes, you will always be in control during the process despite being in an altered state of consciousness. In fact, the therapist will continuously be talking to you and guiding you during the session. And at any point of time if you feel uncomfortable, you will be able to return back to normalcy by simply opening your eyes.

It is probable. We tend to reincarnate along with the same people over and over again. It could be family, friends, our most beloved and our most hated as well. They probably do not look the same as now, they may even have a different gender or completely different roles in our life, but we will recognize them, in a difficult way to explain, like meeting up with an old acquaintance who we meet again after a long time.

Well, its best to have a first-hand experience and form your own opinion than to go by hearsay. The purpose of Regression therapy is healing and is much beyond personal beliefs. The visions that appear to the client during the session could be a past life or could be not, the client is free to label the experiences as per his/her belief system. As long as these visions are therapeutic and helps the client heal, the purpose is served. The labels don’t matter, the therapy does.

Hypnosis isn’t just a stage act or some magical act. It is often misunderstood. Hypnosis is used in genuine psychological therapy process. Clinical hypnotherapy is a type of medical therapy that uses hypnosis as part of its treatment plan that includes traditional medical approaches.

Most people are terrified that if they really submit to the relaxation of hypnosis and go fully into a trance like state, they will no longer be in control of themselves and can be easily controlled by the therapist hypnotizing them. But be assured that you are still fully in control of yourself when you are hypnotized. You are still conscious, and your mind is extremely relaxed. Your hypnotist or hypnotherapist guides you, but hypnosis is something you allow for yourself. Your therapist guides you through your memories so that you find the answers and the healing that you are seeking. You can’t be made to do anything against your will. You won’t reveal any information that you wished to remain secret. You don’t lose control over your behavior.

Hypnosis isn’t magic, it’s just a state of very deep relaxation.  If you don’t want to be hypnotized then you won’t be able to relax and you won’t enter a hypnotic state. You can stop the hypnosis session at any time during the process. You’ve probably seen hypnosis done in films or on TV where the person doing the hypnotizing snaps their fingers and the other person immediately falls into a trance and does what they are told. That’s not how hypnosis works in a clinical hypnotherapy session.

If you have trust issues with your therapist, the treatment will not work for you. You can enquire about her certifications, period of work experience, the actual process of work. Clear your doubts. Do not carry your fear to the treatment seat. Your therapist is a well-educated person. He/ She has studied the subject for several years and is well qualified for this work. A therapist is not a magician, ojha or tantric.

Yes, Hypnotherapy is often used to treat children that have behavioral disorders and children that have had traumatic events happen to them. Children have also been put into a hypnotic state in order to help police solve crimes where children have been attacked.  Some Hypnotherapists have found that using hypnosis as a method of treating night terrors for children under 10 years old can be more effective than other treatments because putting the children in a deep hypnotic state before bed relaxes their brain enough that they don’t have night terrors. If your child is having night terrors and has not responded well to other treatments using hypnosis is an option you should discuss with your doctor.

Hypnotherapy is useful in the treatment of all kinds of physical, mental, emotional & spiritual issues that trouble you. Following is a list: Aches & Pains; Depression; Anxiety; Fears and Phobias; Stress; Habit disorders like Addictions; Gastro-Intestinal Disorders; Skin conditions; post-surgical recovery; Post accident recovery; Relief from nausea and vomiting during Pregnancy; Relationship issues; Forgiveness issues; Insomnia; Migraine and several other issues.

Hypnosis isn’t a magic cure that will get rid of all of your problems at once. You will still need to address your medical and psychological problems one at a time, and over the course of several treatments, in order to see results. It’s possible that symptoms of one disorder that mimic symptoms of another disorder might go away with the symptoms of the other disorder, but in general you will need to tackle one problem at a time when you’re using hypnosis as a treatment. Not all sessions are equally revealing, but they serve as a basis for future sessions from which we will gain more understanding

Another frequently asked question about hypnosis is “how many sessions will I need?” You most likely will need more than one session with a hypnotherapist to solve your problem, depending on what is your issue.  Most people see noticeable results after just one session!!! So, you might not need extensive hypnosis or months of treatment in order to eliminate your problem, but it will almost always take more than one session for you to see any kind of noticeable results for psychological problems.

If the patient does not want to go into hypnosis, there is very little the therapist can do about it. This would be a waste of the patient’s time and money.

Anyone who wants to be hypnotized can be. Conversely, if you do not want to be hypnotized you will not be. Cooperation is thus crucial in the assistance of therapeutic change rather than a ‘power tool’ that the therapist possesses to make you change against your will. How responsive you are to hypnosis and the depth of relaxation achieved is dependent on a number of factors. Everyone can be hypnotized if they are reassured about the process and have a reasonable expectation about what the experience will be like. There are patients who find it difficult even to relax. Misconceptions that relaxation is the same as sleep or even feeling guilty about relaxing can affect one’s ability to relax. Being guided into a relaxed state by the hypnotherapist then can lead a client to be hypnotized which can be a completely new experience for a patient who finds it difficult even to relax.

Patients often feel embarrassed or ashamed about their condition or past events that may have created that condition. A therapist who has built rapport and trust into the process will help the patient feel ready to discuss their issues with the appropriate methods of treatment and desired outcomes. The patient does not have to say anything that they are not ready to speak about.

Hypnotherapy involves far more than just relaxation. It is what follows the relaxation induction that provides the ‘therapeutic’ part of the process. The suggestions and therapeutic technique that follow relaxation is what provides solution to several issues of the clients.

You have lived (and will live) a series of different incarnations and the knowledge of each and every one of them is accessible to you; of course, if you want. If so, go to a professional Hypnotherapist or a Transpersonal Regression Therapist with experience in past life regressions.

Not at all. The therapy goes beyond your belief.  The purpose of the therapy is to guide you to make appropriate shifts/changes in your current life and to help connect the dots throughout the experience. If you do not believe in reincarnation, you can still be successfully regressed and gain a lot of benefit from a PLR session. The healing result of the therapy depends on its process and the emotional work performed and is beyond your personal beliefs.

Most people remember everything that happens during a regression session. You remain aware of who you are, where you are and remember what happened during the session. The experiences that take place in each regression session typically have an intensity and vividness which can be evoked years later and are usually remembered as if they were recent memories. And there is always a choice of recording your sessions, audio or video.

It is the non-physical state to which souls are directed after death. It is the time period or space between two lifetimes. This space ranges from bright light to pure energy. It can also be a place, a color. The soul can appear as contained in a body or simply as a non-corporeal luminous state. There it meets the other souls it has met in other existences. It is also in that place where consciousness and memory expand and we can remember and understand our past lives.

It depends on what happens in each session. In general, it is as if we were awakened from a long and deep sleep. We will feel so relaxed that it might take a while to be fully awake. We may feel tired if the session gets lengthy (more than 2hrs) or very energized, depending on the person and the experience. Generally, after a few minutes, as we open our eyes, we are back to our usual state and good enough to drive back home.
