• Have you ever been so absorbed in a book or TV programme that everything else around you has been excluded from your mind?
  • Have you ever been driving along and not notice you've passed the turning you wanted?  
  • Do you always remember locking the door behind you?  
  • Have you ever seen an advertisement on a poster or on TV and felt you should go out and by it?
  • These are all commonly occurring examples of going into or being in hypnosis. Hypnosis is a natural state of deep relaxation and inner awareness. In fact, we pass through hypnosis on the way to and from sleep on a daily basis, so we can recognise it as a very pleasant and comfortable state of being.
  • The first rule of thumb about hypnosis is to forget what you may have heard or seen with regard to stage hypnotism. The perception is that the 'subjects' are in a semi-comatose state, unaware of their surroundings, and unable to control what they say, think, feel or do. Well, this could not be further from the truth. Hypnosis is a very consensual state. It means that no one can force it upon you, and no one can make you do things that are against your will or beliefs.
  • It is very important that you realise that you are always in the driver's seat, and your thoughts, images, feelings and beliefs are your own.
