Hypnosis isn't something you either believe in or don't believe in. It's a scientific fact underpinned by a huge collection of evidence supporting its effectiveness.
The problem is that many people have an inaccurate understanding of what hypnosis is. This is due to the way hypnosis is presented in the popular media as something that can 'make people do funny things'.
There is no defense in law that you can be made to do something by hypnosis. It just isn't possible. Even those people you see on TV, dancing around and barking, are volunteers, doing something they want to do (for one reason or another).
In a therapeutic setting, hypnosis is used as a tool to put you back in control of your life and to achieve amazing goals. It can help you get rid of old habits, negative ways of thinking and behaving, and replace them with positive new habits, like relaxation, motivation, and feeling more confident.
The fact is that hypnosis doesn't make you do anything you don't want to do. Fully understanding this fact is the first step in realising just how powerful hypnosis can be as a tool for change.
It is a tool that, once you learn how to use it properly, can help you achieve just about any goal you set your mind to. Because of this, one of the first things we do is to make sure that you have clear goals set, and then together we develop a plan to get you there as quickly as possible with a great expectation of success.
