Many people are apprehensive about the idea of taking part in hypnotherapy. There are a number of reasons for this – for example, it’s somewhat natural to be nervous about new experiences. But there is also the various depictions of hypnosis in the media which people have grown up with, in which the techniques are shown as a method of controlling others!
Nothing could be further from the truth, as in fact, when you undergo hypnosis you will actually be able seize control of your own behaviour, abilities and your place in the world, much better than you could before.
If you’ve never taken part in hypnotherapy before, you are probably wondering what to expect. Knowing a little something in advance of your first appointment might give you that little extra bit of courage needed to make the changes you feel you need to make in your life.
There isn’t really a single answer to the question of what you will experience. The reason for this is that your therapy will be tailored to your specific needs, and dependent on not just what changes you would like to make in your life, but how you are most likely to respond to different forms of treatment.
