Any questions you may have will be included here for the benefit of other potential clients.
How do I know if I can be hypnotised?
Anyone can experience the deep relaxation of hypnotherapy. It isn't necessary to go so deeply that you aren't aware of what's happening around you. In fact, in most cases, hypnotherapy works best when you are aware of what the therapist is saying.
Will I remember everything that happens during hypnotherapy?
Whatever you're comfortable remembering will stay with you once we finish the session. If you forget anything, it's usually because it's not necessary to remember it. I always give suggestions towards the end of the therapy that you will remember whatever you want to.
Do past lives really exist?
This isn't an easy question to answer! There are many theories and beliefs around past lives and reincarnation. My experience tells me that we are able to access meaningful, significant experiences that appear to be from other lives. What's important is the work we do with those memories, not whether they are really past life memories or metaphors for current life experiences we're trying to make sense of. When working with clients, I ask them to go with whatever comes up and to act 'as if' it's real. It seems that just working with what comes up as if it is real, is enough to promote lasting change and relief from current issues.
