4 Things You Should Know Before Your First Hypnotist Session


Are you thinking about scheduling a session with a hypnotist? 

There are a lot of benefits to seeing a hypnotist. For example, a hypnotist can help you improve your sleep, calm your nerves and anxiety, lose weight, and quit smoking. 

But, before you schedule a session with a hypnotist, there are some things you should know. 

Check out this guide to learn the top things you should know before your first hypnotist session. 

1. It’s Different from What You’ve Seen Onstage 

A lot of people have their first experience with a hypnotist during a stage show. While these stage shows are typically real, it’s important to remember that they’re for entertainment purposes only. 

Clucking like a chicken or barking like a dog is just a part of the spectacle, and these shows are nothing like therapeutic hypnotherapy sessions. During a hypnotherapy session, you’re always in control. 

Also, it will just be you and your quantum therapist is a quiet room. 

2. Hypnosis is Not the Same as Sleeping 

Many people think that they’ll be put to sleep during their hypnosis session. However, this is not the case. 

Hypnosis is a heightened state of learning in which the mind is alert and the body is deeply relaxed. Occasionally, you may drift into sleep during the hypnosis session, but this is never the goal. 

It’s the job of the hypnotherapist to make sure their client maintains a state of relaxed awareness during the session. Although your mind may drift during the session, you should be able to hear everything that’s being said during the session.

3. Everyone Can be Hypnotized 

You may be worried about whether or not you’ll be able to be hypnotized during your first session. However, it’s important to remember that hypnosis is a willing state, and everyone can be hypnotized. 

But, you can’t be hypnotized against your own will. If your hypnotherapist isn’t able to induce you into a hypnotic state, it’s often because there’s a lack of rapport between you and your hypnotherapist.

It may also mean that the hypnotherapist you’re working with isn’t properly trained. For this reason, it’s very important to do thorough research on the hypnotherapist you choose. 

4. You Likely Won’t Experience a “Miracle” Cure 

Now is the time to squash the idea that all you’ll need is one hypnotherapy session to break your bad habit or completely change your life. 

Just like any other form of therapy, hypnotherapy takes time to work. In general, it takes 21 days to form a new habit and 3 to 6 weeks solidify it. So, don’t expect a miracle to happen during your first session. 

Are You Ready to Schedule Your Hypnotist Session?
