Frequently Asked Questions

Are you trying to figure out if Hypnotherapy is right for you? You're not alone. Here are some of the most common questions that we get asked.

Will I remember everything afterwards?

Most people do remember everything, depending on how deep your mind goes. You will find that suggestions which have been given to you in hypnosis will resurface in your conscious mind after your session and these will be the thoughts that produce positive changes in your behavior or way of thinking.

Why should I try Hypnosis?

Because it works! With hypnosis, you can access the subconscious mind to release and discover core issues causing symptoms of stress, fears, phobias, anxiety, etc. Studies have found that subconscious thoughts and beliefs are eight to nine times more powerful than conscious awareness. Thus when you change the subconscious thought process, you are tapping eight to nine times more power over your life than conscious determination would allow.

Here are powerful reasons to see Maness Hypnosis:

  • BEHAVIORAL BENEFITS: Change Eating Habits, Self Love, Communication Skills

What is Hypnosis... really?

Hypnosis is a heightened state of focus and suggestibility in which the body and conscious mind are in a naturally relaxed state while the subconscious mind remains very alert and receptive to positive suggestions for change. People often refer to hypnosis as a state where one can concentrate intensely while blocking out distractions.

In hypnotherapy, we simply deal with how an undesired behavior can be unlearned and how a desired one can be learned to replace it. What we do is simply reprogram your subconscious mind to make it congruent with what you want consciously.

Hypnosis is a tool used to bypass the critical analysis of your mind so that the suggestions for change can be accepted and then incorporated into a new “automatic” behavior. Like they do with a computer, we reprogram your subconscious mind and create new positive associations that will help you achieve the goal you haven’t been able to achieve by yourself so far.

What is a Hypnotherapist?

It is commonly believed that hypnotherapists are similar to other mental health professionals, like psychologists. Hypnotherapy, however, is a unique modality with with its own scope and preparation. A well-trained hypnotherapist understands that clients heal themselves.

Hence, a hypnotherapist is part investigator, accountability partner, a “debugging” specialist, coach, and instructor. It is a dynamic role that requires empathy, intuition, logic, and listening skills. The outcome is to help someone make a lasting change, usually pertaining to mental or physical habits.

Why should I try Hypnotherapy?

Initiating change at the conscious level can be very difficult. The conscious mind makes up only around 10-12% of our total mind power. By contrast, the subconscious mind encompasses the other 88-90%. This vast portion of our mind houses the unconscious story or programming that influences virtually everything we do. If it isn’t congruent with our conscious desires, it is not hard to see which part of the mind will get its way.

Because hypnotherapy is the art of rewriting unconscious programs, it is very effective at turning the subconscious mind into a powerful “goal machine” that works behind the scenes, 24/7, to create positive, lasting changes in our lives. To get an idea of hypnotherapy’s efficacy, see this comparison study published in Psychotherapy Magazine (Volume 7, Number 1, Alfred A Barrios, PhD):

● Hypnotherapy: 93% recovery after 6 sessions
● Cognitive Behavioral Therapy: 72% recovery after 22 sessions
● Psychoanalysis: 38% recovery after 600 sessions

Can anyone be Hypnotized?

Yes. Everyone has the ability to be hypnotized. Hypnosis is a very normal process that we all experience for a few minutes everyday before we fall asleep. Everyone who is willing to relax and enjoy the benefits of hypnosis can be hypnotized. Anyone who can follow directions can be hypnotized. The most creative and intelligent people are usually the best at learning how to go into hypnosis.

I've been to a Hypnotherapist before, and it didn't work — why would this be different?

Hypnosis is a natural state that we have access to all day long. When you drive down the road and miss a turn or get lost in a movie or your favorite song, those are all states of hypnosis. The most common reason for failure to induce trance is lack of rapport and explanation of the state, or a hypnotherapist without proper training who is using incomplete methods. Always check the background of a new hypnotherapist before committing to a session.

Will I be asleep?

Historically, the word Hypnosis comes from Greek origin meaning a “sleep-like state”. However you will not be asleep, nor will you be unconscious. You will be aware of everything that is happening and that is being said the whole time. You will be entirely focused on increasing your motivation, your beliefs in what is possible, your confidence and your self-esteem. Although the words “deep sleep” may be used during our sessions, you will hear everything that is being said: this is your clue to the fact that you are in the hypnotic state rather than sleep.

Do some people get "stuck in a trance?"

No. You are only in a state of very deep relaxation and you can leave that state whenever you want to. It is impossible to get “stuck”. All hypnotic states end, whether formally ended by the Hypnotherapist or naturally by you. Our hypnotherapists can demonstrate this for you.

Will I do things that I don't want or be under your control?

Absolutely not. Hypnosis works on the basis of positive suggestions. Whilst you may be in a meditation-like state, your mind is still in control and will reject any suggestions that you would normally consider inappropriate. When you work with our hypnotist, you are not in anyone’s power and you cannot be controlled in any way.

The people you see on stage shows are all “willing volunteers” whose eagerness to entertain others is the basis of their apparent programmed behavior. You cannot be made to do anything against your will; no one can be made to do anything or say anything that conflicts with his or her personal and ethical standards or morals.

Will I loose control of my mind or share personal secrets?

No, you won’t say or do anything that you don’t want to. While hypnosis can be used for personal benefit, it cannot cause you to say or do anything against your free will or ethics.

Hypnosis is specifically used to improve your health and well-being and is different from stage hypnosis that is used for entertainment purposes only. You will not start clucking like a chicken or break out in a Michael Jackson dance. If you were given suggestions that you don’t morally agree with, you would come out of hypnosis and your mind would mentally block those suggestions. Hypnosis is not a control state, it is an agreeable state for the mind and body to shift its perspective in life.

Are there any negative side effects?

There are no negative side effects. Most people find the experience to be extremely positive, beneficial and empowering. Hypnosis is considered safe no matter what your condition. I always ensure that you and are in a positive, relaxed and motivated state at the end of each session.

What can hypnosis help me with?

Habits are controlled by the subconscious mind. Since hypnosis accesses the subconscious mind, your behavior can be modified to benefit you by replacing old beliefs or behaviors you no longer need or want with new ones you desire. All behaviors are a learned response. If you learned them, you can unlearn them. 

At Maness Hypnosis, we specialize in using hypnotherapy to treat anxiety, however, hypnosis can be used for a variety of other ailments, such as: weight loss, relationship enhancement, self-esteem and self-confidence, positive attitude, motivation, goals and success achievement, fears (flying, public speaking, heights, success or failure, animals, doctors, dentist, etc.), habit control (stop smoking, stop nail biting, etc.), sports and performance enhancement, test taking, stress reduction, releasing negative emotions (anger, fear, sadness, guilt, etc.), etc.

It is not a good use for drug addiction, alcoholism, or serious mental disorders like bipolar disorder.

“In A Few Weeks, I Felt A Significant Difference In My Mood”

“I’ve struggled with depression on and off for years, and up until recently it had become almost debilitating. I had therapy but none of them really effectively got to the root of the problem. After just a few weeks of working with Sean, I felt a significant difference in my mood and motivation. I was able to come back to my interests of art and design after so long and was excited about life again after being held back by depression for so long. Sean is a great listener and really tried to understand you so as to give you the right help you need.”
