FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Here is a list of our most frequently asked questions we often get asked about at Inspire Hypnotherapy.
IS HYPNOTHERAPY SAFE?
Yes. Hypnosis is as safe alternative therapy. A hypnotic state is a natural state we enter almost daily without ever realizing. For more information on this please visit our What Is Hypnotherapy page. Or alternatively you can find out more information about hypnotherapy on the CNHC website, the independent government body representing alternative therapies.
WHEN UNDER HYPNOSIS AM I UNDER SOMEONE ELSE'S CONTROL?
NO! Hypnotherapy cannot be used to control another individual. Hypnosis is a natural state, under hypnosis all clients can hear what is being said too them and most importantly have the free will to decide whether or not to listen to the suggestions being made.
WILL HYPNOSIS WORK FOR ME?
Hypnosis works for a vast amount of people on an even larger array of issues. Hypnotherapy is for you if you require the inspiration and the tools to achieve a change for the better. That may be giving up smoking, losing weight or achieving pain management.
CAN A FRIEND/RELATIVE BE WITH ME WHEN I'M HYPNOTISED?
The short answer is yes. Hypnotherapy works better when you are feeling relaxed and comfortable, so if you are more relaxed having a friend or relative there to support you that would be what we recommend. Equally if you would be more comfortable on your own that would also be encouraged.
WHAT CAN HYPNOSIS TREAT?
Hypnotherapy can help with an extensive list of ailments some of which can be found on our Treatment Page.

I SAW THAT YOU OFFERED A FREE INITIAL CONSULTATION HOW DOES THAT WORK?
We believe that all our customers should receive value for money. Therefore, we do not charge for our initial consultation. In the consultation we discuss what you would like to achieve and if hypnotherapy is suitable for you and your situation.
When you book an initial assessment, you will be charged for the hypnotherapy session after the assessment. However, if after the initial consultation and before the treatment has commenced you feel hypnotherapy not for you then the cost of the follow up session will be refunded.

HOW MAY SESSIONS WILL I NEED?
That is a good question. That often depends on the condition being treated. Things such as Pain Management can often take longer where as other issues can sometimes be dealt with quicker. It also varies greatly between different clients. So to answer this question, it would be when you feel you have achieved your goal and have made the desired change in your life. As a guide the average amount of sessions is three although some people have succeeded with just one session. For others it could be five or six sessions.
WILL MY HEALTH CARE PLAN COVER HYPNOTHERAPY?
Yes. Most health care plans have an allowance for paying for hypnotherapy, including Simply Health. You should check with your individual provider to see if you are covered and how much you can claim.
