FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 Rapid Transformational Therapy

 

How long does it take?

Each Rapid Transformational Therapy session lasts between 90 minutes and 2 hours. For that reason, please block a full 2 hours in your calendar to make sure we have enough time.

What does it feel like?

The experience feels different for each client. Some people feel a floating sensation, some don't. Others may feel sleepy, while others are really present, and focused. The majority of clients feel relaxed and at ease. What's most important is to know how you feel, isn't an indicator of how effective it is. Regardless of what it feels like – it's working!

Can I get "stuck" in hypnosis?

No. You have complete control the whole time. You can talk, move your body, get a tissue, even get up and leave. If on we are on Skype/FaceTime, and our call gets disconnected, you may drift into sleep if you're really relaxed, but eventually, you'll notice that you're not hearing my voice, and be able to open your eyes.

How does it work?

Hypnosis is not magic – it's science! It works by creating a burst of brain waves that are the same as when you're in REM. That's what allows you to access the subconscious mind. It's very easy and anyone can do it, you'll see for yourself when you do it too!

What if I don't "go deep" enough?

Don't worry about how deep you go. I want you to forget all about that. It's really not important. The depth of trance is not linked to results at all. So don't get stuck on "Am I deep enough?" Just tell yourself the truth – "This is working" and it will absolutely work. Just know, that it is effective.

What if I think I already know the reasons behind my issue?

What makes RTT amazing is that even if you think you know the reason, you see it in a COMPLETELY new way. That's what allows you to change the meaning and ultimately, change your beliefs. And for many clients, they go back to scenes that are different than what they expected. Just relax and trust that your subconscious mind will show you exactly what you need to see.

What if I go back to scenes that are painful or scary?

If you go back to scenes from your life that are related to things like sexual or physical abuse, or other trauma, it's important to remember that you are not reliving that scene, you are simply reviewing it, and that you are safe. I will support you and create a safe space for you to express your emotions and then be able to heal.

When will I start to see changes?

There are 3 types of change from Rapid Transformational Therapy – every person is different:

Immediate: You feel a massive shift right away – immediate changes in your physiology, thoughts and behaviours right in the session.

Incremental: You see consistent shifts every day, or overtime.

Retroactive: You don't see the shifts right away and then one day you suddenly look back and see all of the things that are different in your life.

What if I need or want another session?

RTT is designed to give you a powerful breakthrough and create big changes in your life. Some clients may need more than one RTT session on a particular issue, depending on how deep it is, it can take up to three. Most want to keep doing sessions to work on other areas of their life and receive coaching to integrate the new beliefs and build new habits and behaviours.


Hypnotherapy

How does hypnosis work?

Hypnosis is a state of mind that allows you to access inner resources and think about things in a new way so that you can take steps towards achieving the desired outcome. Hypnosis enables the client to achieve a state of mental, physical and emotional relaxation. When in hypnosis, the conscious mind (that busy, critical, analytical part of the mind) takes a rest.

Hypnosis allows people to tap into the storehouse of information that lies in the subconscious (also referred to as the unconscious) mind and make positive changes to thought patterns, habits, or the effects of traumatic incidents that are having a negative impact, either mentally or physically. It is a pleasant, voluntary state of relaxed attentive concentration, resulting in an altered state of consciousness, during which the conscious critical mind is relaxed and relatively inactive, and with a person's permission, the doorway to the subconscious, inner mind is opened.

In this comfortable state, suggestibility is heightened, mental absorption is increased, the senses are heightened, and the imagination is activated in a controlled manner. The inner mind is more receptive to acceptable, beneficial suggestions. Hypnosis reprograms, re-wires, and re-imprints any negative thoughts, and behaviours, at a deep subconscious level.

How many Hypnotherapy sessions do I need?

Everyone responds differently and at their own pace to the work we do together, however, I find that on average, two to three sessions often covers most aspects of the process of positive change for anyone's issue. The repetition of positive suggestions to the subconscious, during hypnosis, implants new empowering, thoughts, emotions, and behaviours.

What does Hypnosis feel like & can anyone be hypnotized?

The feeling when in hypnosis is of being physically and mentally relaxed. It has been likened to the feelings we experience just before waking completely from sleep, or just as we drift off to sleep. Some people say it feels like daydreaming. When in hypnosis, people experience a state of complete mental, physical and emotional relaxation. In itself, this is a very healing state. Virtually anyone can be hypnotised – some more easily than others. Like anything else in life, the more people practise self-hypnosis, the more easily they can slip into that wonderfully relaxed state. The depth that people reach in hypnosis varies between individuals.

It is not necessary to achieve a very deep level of hypnosis to bring about change to habits or conditions that are having a negative impact either mentally or physically. A common myth about hypnotisability is when a person says, "No one could hypnotise me, and I'm too strong-minded". All hypnosis is self-hypnosis. A person goes into hypnosis because they choose to. So, in fact, strong-minded individuals are usually really good candidates for hypnosis, provided they are committed to wanting it to work for them.

How safe is hypnosis?

Hypnosis is a normal, naturally occurring, healthy state of mind. It is drug-free.

How can a treatment aimed at your mind, affect your body?

The body responds physically to thoughts. For example, when we think a frightening thought, we can experience increased heart rate, shortness of breath, "butterflies" in the stomach, muscular rigidity, sweating, shaking, and so on. Similarly, when we think a pleasurable thought, we can experience reduced heart rate, deeper breathing, relaxation of muscles, and so on. These are autonomic nervous system responses that are involuntary, but they can be utilized to promote health. When hypnotized, an individual is very open to suggestions that can enhance positive, and diminish negative physical reactions.

Will I be asleep or unconscious?

No. When a person is in Hypnosis, they are not asleep. He or she is very much aware of all that is going on. In actuality, in Hypnosis, one's senses become heightened and more acute. Of course, if a person is tired, it is possible to fall asleep during hypnosis. However, the subject is asleep and no longer in hypnosis. In actuality, when this occurs, the state of sleep is a light but relaxing state of sleep. A simple suggestion to wake up, given by the hypnotist, is all that is required to rouse up the subject. We experience ‘natural trance’ in many ways.

When driving home while being mentally preoccupied with thoughts and suddenly realising that even though you have arrived safely at your destination, you can't recall driving past familiar landmarks. It's as if you were on automatic pilot.

If you have ever been so absorbed in an activity that you were able to block out sounds or make them unimportant or not even hear them. If you have ever been able to shut out your surroundings by concentrating very hard on something else.

Will I lose control of myself?

No, there is no loss of control. Hypnosis allows clients to be more focused, less distractible and more skilful in using their mental abilities constructively. In this way, they can achieve more of their goals, and consequently, actually achieve more (not less) control of their comfort, health, and well-being.

Can I get stuck or trapped in hypnosis?

No, you cannot. At any time, a client can re-alert or choose to ignore suggestions. No one stays hypnotized indefinitely – you will always "come out" of trance within a short time.

How can I benefit from using NLP?

NLP is known to offer tools for people to gain control over their mind, behaviour and emotions. It has some of the most effective tools for resolving negative past experiences, fears and phobia's, and works much faster and more effectively than mainstream therapy. It can produce fast results and profound lasting change in clients in any area of their life.
