What to Expect at a Hypnosis Session

Updated: Apr 7

If you are considering a Hypnosis session, you may wonder what to expect, in this article we have provided a breakdown of a typical Hypnosis session:


Before the Hypnosis session begins, you'll have a consultation with the Hypnotist to discuss your goals and any specific issues you'd like to address. This is also an excellent opportunity to ask questions about Hypnosis and the process.


Induction is the process of entering into the hypnotic state. The Hypnotist will guide you through relaxation techniques, such as deep breathing and progressive muscle relaxation, to help you relax and let go of any distractions.


The deepening process is used to help you enter into a deeper state of Hypnosis. The hypnotherapist might use techniques such as counting down or using imagery to help you relax and focus more deeply.


Once you're in the hypnotic state, the Hypnotist will make suggestions to your subconscious mind. These suggestions are designed to help you overcome challenges or achieve particular goals. For example, if you're seeking to quit smoking, they might suggest that you no longer crave cigarettes or that smoking is no longer enjoyable.


At the end of the session, the Hypnotist will bring you back to a fully awake and alert state. This process is called reorientation, and it helps you to feel grounded and fully present in the present moment.


After the session, the Hypnotist may provide you with a recording of the session to listen to at home. This can help to reinforce the suggestions made during the session and support your progress.

It's important to remember that everyone's experience of Hypnosis is unique, and what you experience during a Hypnosis session will depend on your individual goals and needs.

However, this is a general outline of what you can expect during a typical hypnosis session. If you have any specific questions or concerns, discuss them with your Hypnotist before the session.
