FAQ’s

woman holding question mark to signify FAQ

Is hypnosis a form of mind control?

No. No one can make you do anything while in hypnosis that goes against your fundamental value system.

What can hypnotherapy be used for?

There is no real limit to its applications and effectiveness, however, for more serious psychological and medical conditions, Hypnotherapy should be used in consultation with the relevant psychological and/or medical professionals.

Can I be hypnotised?

Given the right conditions everyone is capable of entering hypnosis. Everyone has experienced their own form of self-hypnosis as we are all in some level of trance throughout the day.

For example, you may have driven your car to a destination which is familiar however after reaching your destination you cannot remember actually driving there. This is a state of hypnosis. Your subconscious mind remembers the route so therefore you are virtually on automatic pilot. If, however, you drove a different car with a different gear mechanism, on that same route, hypnosis would not occur as it has no memory of the cars gears and has to learn how to operate them.

You can only be hypnotised if you are willing, and the level and depth of hypnosis is really controlled by you rather than the therapist. No one can hypnotise you against your will.

What happens if I don’t come out of hypnosis?

No one can be kept permanently in a hypnotic state and clients will come out of hypnosis easily. If you experience any difficulty during hypnosis you will be guided safely back to full awareness. You are in control at all times.

How many sessions will I need?

That will depend on your state of mind, the presenting issue and how well you respond to hypnotherapy. As hypnotherapy works rapidly I generally recommend between 3 -6 sessions to reach a successful outcome however it will depend on the issue. The timeframe between sessions will depend on the issue and this will be discussed during your consultation.

Although hypnotherapy works rapidly, it is not a ‘magic pill’. It usually takes time for issues to build and therefore, depending on the issue, may take time to resolve.

One thing to be aware of is that hypnotherapy continues to process in the subconscious mind long after the sessions finish. Change may occur in a day, a few days or a week. But the change will happen.

How long are the sessions?

The first session is usually 1 ½ – 2 hours and subsequent sessions are approximately 1 hour.

What should I wear to a hypnotherapy session?

You should wear comfortable clothing.

What will be expected of me?

The expectation is that you do everything that you can do to make the treatment work , to work with the therapist and do any homework, if any, that is requested.

How much does it cost?

Contact Annie to discuss your issue or challenge and she will provide her prices and packages and method of payment required.

Do I need or want therapy?

When plumbing fails, I call a plumber. When I am not well, I see a doctor. When I want to change or improve aspects of my life, I see a therapist. Why do it alone? Get help. HYPNOTHERAPY WORKS!

Who uses hypnotherapy?

It is used by sports people and corporate management for motivation, in advertising to attract you to certain ideas, by public speakers and politicians to captivate their audiences and by many therapists to effectively change or improve many aspects of people’s lives.

Why use hypnotherapy?

Hypnotherapy is effective, powerful and it works. It also works faster than other forms of therapy as it directly deals with the “subconscious mind”.

Will I qualify for a rebate through health insurance?

Some health funds cover hypnotherapy.  You will need to either check with your provider and/or ask Annie if your health fund will cover the service.  If so, she will provide guidance and a number for you to reference so you can submit your claim.
