Hypnosis: The Frequently Asked Questions Page.

What is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis is a specialized form of verbal communication.  Hypnotherapy directs the hypnotic state onto the specific area of life.  That the individual wishes to amend / change.  Using hypnosis a clients imagination is then directed, focused onto those issues.  Outcome is focused upon actioning the required, desired changes.  

Can Hypnosis work for me?

Yes it can. It works very well, on any subject that you choose, that you place your focus upon. It is always best to focus upon one, maximum two life areas, within sessions.  Step by Step Hypnotherapy is observed and felt with life changing results. 

Am I able to be Hypnotised? 

The answer is yes, The hypnotic state is a natural state,  in fact its so natural, you enter in and leave this state all the time.  Because it is so natural for everyone, it passes you by unnoticed.

What you learn to do within sessions.  Is to access the hypnotic state.  Directing it onto any area of your life.  That you choose to. When your sessions are over you take with you a CD for self hypnosis at home. 

Is it anything like the Media: Films or stage hypnosis?

Absolutely NOT !!! I say this with a triple exclamation mark. What you see in the media and on stage is a dramatized  performance. There is nothing supernatural or unnatural about this natural therapy.


The control is yours, you are always aware and in control. Free to leave this state whenever you wish to. There is no putting you under, making you do anything i.e. acting against your own will and ethics.

The control is yours. At Woods Hypnotherapy hypnosis is always set within a safe therapeutic and comfortable environment.
