Frequently Asked Questions - FAQs

What do I need to know about NLP?

Neuro-linguistic programming, or NLP, sounds like some mysterious and complicated treatment, but you'll find that it is actually ambiguous. NLP is examination of human experiences that take place inside the mind. This examination is based on observable traits in the human. Many people are relying on NLP to solve quite a variety of problems and issues because the treatments have very good results, very quickly. With the use of NLP, you learn how to change your thoughts and feelings by being more control of your imagination and your mind. You are trained to have control over how you talk to yourself mentally, what you imagine, what you remember, and what you see in your mind. The end result is that you learn how to consciously be in charge of your life, rather than allow your life to be in charge of you.

What do I need to know about Hypnosis?

Hypnosis is a technique where you are guided by a practitioner to enter a relaxed state. You can be quite deeply relaxed, or lightly relaxed, depending on how your practitioner approaches your treatment. When you get into the relaxed state, your practitioner will use certain techniques of direct suggestions or indirect suggestions to guide you in the direction where you will be able to make changes in how you think and feel. This changes your behaviour.  We have been told by our clients that hypnosis is quite relaxing and enjoyable.

Hypnosis CanadaAre NLP and Hypnosis safe?

NLP and hypnosis are very safe. In fact, they are so safe that the insurance companies who cover NLP that is professionally done claim that they are in the extreme lowest risk category.

Are you positive I can be hypnotized?

Yes, we are! Anyone is able to be hypnotized if they are willing to be. Hypnotism is merely a simple guided relaxation process.

What is it like to be hypnotized?

When you are hypnotized, you are just very relaxed. We have clients who go into a light state of relaxation, and clients who go into a deep state of relaxation.  You will find that the hypnosis process is quite easy, very comfortable, and very safe.

What are the side effects?

Hypnosis has no sort of negative side effects. The only side effects you'll have are a feeling of relaxation and a lighter feeling of ease.

What happens if for some reason I lose control?

None of our clients have ever lost control when hypnotized, and neither will you. Rather, the opposite thing will happen. You will be more firmly in control of the problem or issue that you want to rid yourself of.

How much will I remember after I have been hypnotized?

This is hard to say, as it can be different for each person. Most of our clients are able to remember quite a lot about what goes on during hypnosis, but they usually do not remember the specific details. It's kind of like having read a book or watched a television program some time ago. You are able to generally remember what happened, but the specific details are not so clear.

I heard some people are too intelligent to be hypnotized – is that true?

No, it isn't. Someone who is extremely intelligent takes to hypnosis quite well, as the practitioner can use their intelligence to improve the technique.

What if I am unable to be hypnotized?

Those who have seen people on television and in the movies become hypnotized think that you are unconscious when it is working, but that is not true. When hypnotized, you may have the experience of being deeply relaxed, lightly relaxed, or you may feel a bit uncertain. All of these are quite all right, because most hypnosis and NLP techniques can be used anyway.

How many times will I need hypnosis?

This depends on several factors. Your practitioner will be able to estimate while working with you the number of sessions you should expect. The number of sessions can vary, depending on the progress you make., and be more or less than the estimate.
