Not sure what to expect?
I am happy to answer any questions you have about hypnosis, active meditation, or mindfulness techniques. Like any other any type of therapy, you will have the best results when you feel comfortable with both the therapist and the technique.
How to know that you are talking to a well-qualified practitioner
Ask lots of questions. The first time I went to a hypnotherapist I had no idea what to expect. The session was quick. First, she asked only asked a couple of questions. Next she hooked me up to a karaoke machine, then read a generic you ‘feel better’ script to me. I didn’t know it at the time, but all of these things were clues that she wasn’t well qualified.
Even worse, when I went back for a second appointment (I was desperate), I asked some basic questions. She couldn’t answer them. That was the big red flag I couldn’t miss.
Hypnotherapists are not oracles, but someone who is properly trained and well qualified will be able to answer your questions. A good hypnotherapist will be able to explain things like :
- The difference between hypnosis and hypnotherapy
- How the brain processes information and why knowing this can help make change fast and easy
- The downside to only using positive affirmations and scripts
