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.
Can’t find the answer to your question?
OLD PAIN 2 GO FAQS
WHAT CAN I EXPECT?
One of three things: Zero Pain, Reduced Pain or No Change. No Change is very rare. Total Removal is the majority and reduction is the rest.
DOES IT WORK ON ANY PAIN?
A. It works regardless of the original cause.
I HAVE A LIFELONG CONDITION WILL THE PAIN GO?
Yes the old pain message has done its job and alerted you and the medical profession to the problem. That old message can be deleted and new pain arrive as is needed to alert you to a new problem.
I HAVE A DETERIORATING CONDITION, HOW WILL IT WORK ON THAT?
It works well on deteriorating conditions. You are likely to have regular assessments to review the problem area. OldPain2Go would act like pressing the fire alarm reset button. We are aware of the old fire and and can reset the alarm to stop ringing whilst resetting it to tell us of new danger.
I HAVE PUT UP WITH THIS PAIN FOR MANY YEARS, HOW CAN IT GO IN JUST MINUTES?
The longer you have had the pain the more likely it is that it no longer serves a purpose - you are aware of it - nothing can be done (medically) and your doctor prescribes pain relief. These are all signs that the old pain message is redundant. All that is required is for us to convince your unconscious of it.
SURELY IF IT NUMBS AN AREA THAT WOULD BE DANGEROUS IF A NEW INJURY OCCURRED?
Yes it would. But it doesn't numb the area, it just turns off the old pain message allowing new pain to come as and when necessary.
IS IT SAFE?
Yes totally. It works by the same internally processing of your unconscious that keeps you alive, runs your heart, your lungs and every other cell in your body. We just make it aware of the pain being more of a problem than helping you. Your unconscious then makes the best choice for you.
